My Berry Bridal Bouquet

Romantique/ Wedding

 

  Dress "Roseblom" from Jcrew, shoes from Marc Jacbos.

You never know where you pick up inspiration for your wedding. For my own bridal bouqet,  I was inspired by a flower bouquet R&R mum bought at Dresden last winter. She sent me a photo of the whimsical bouquet which contained dark winter berries and the idea was born!

A huge thank you to my Berlin Florist “Gruene Ecke” who made this beautiful bouqet just like I imagined it to be and even better!

My brief for the wedding flowers was short and sweet:

–          Different colours, including pink (naturally)

–          The bouquet should exude a “just picked off the field” style, not too stiff and put together

–          Include berries and fruit into the bouquet

I was told this type of bouqet is called an “Open Biedermeier”. You can see the beautiful result here. Mr Romantique carried a matching flower and berry pin for his suit and all the female guests wore a small bouqets too.  This was the lovely idea of the florist and made everyone feel more involved and part of the day.

Our Berlin Wedding

Berlin/ Current Affairs/ Dresses/ Romantique/ Wedding

Every girl dreams of her wedding day; being a beautiful princess, marrying the man of her dreams.

When Mr Romantique and I got engaged 10 months ago, we always knew that we wanted a small, intimate wedding, attended only by  immediate family.  And so it was; a small wonderful wedding of 15, in the heart of my home city Berlin, almost a month ago.The wedding venue Ermelerhaus, a historic, roccoco Patrician villa, is located just next door to the Australian Embassy. If this isn’t  fate I don’t know what is!On the day, everything fell into place magically and I could not have been happier with the decor,  flowers, cake,  and weather.  To illustrate the union of a German gal with an Aussie boy, we decorated the car with a German/ Australian flag adorned with small little flowers. The gingerbread hearts had the names of the guests written in icing and served as place mats and decor. Thanks to Rebel, we incorporated the cute German wedding tradition of cutting a heart out of a bed sheet with nail scissors.

I always thought its a bit cheesy when people say that the wedding day is “the most beautiful day of your life”. Now I can say, it really is incredible. Promising to stay with your love forever, through good times and bad, witnessed  by loving family who have travelled from near and very far. A perfect day just like I always dreamed.

What I wore: Wedding dress from Jcrew ‘Roseblooom adorned with fabric roses. I had the dress shortened from tea length to knee length to make it look more 50s Audrey Hepburn like. Kittenheeled shoes with gingham vichy checks from Marc Jacobs. Lilly of the valley earrings from Les Nereides. Sunglasses from Celine.
Photographer: A special thanks to Melanie from photoemotions.de who perfectly caught the magic moments of our day. If you ever need a photographer for an occasion in Berlin, this is the lady!

3 weeks ago, on 31st August, Tatiana Santo Domingo married Grace Kelly’s grandson, Andrea Casiraghi, in Monaco. Just 5 days before I married Mr Romantique in Berlin! While Tatiana opted for a boho wedding dress from Missoni complete with flower power head piece, I went for the Audrey Hepburn 50s look. Vichy checked kitten heels and a flared tea length dress from Jcrew (Rosebloom).

Just like her, I decided to wear a flower crown to give my dress a romantic flair. To not make it look too boho, the delicate pink flowers were arranged on an alice band that I could easily pop into my hair.
