You'll fall hard for this couple's riverfront outdoor wedding ceremony and casual glam reception
An outdoor ceremony by the Margaret River
When fashion designer Jonte Pike and pilot Dave Morgan decided to hold their celebration at the Black Brewing Co. brewery, they engaged the help of floral event stylist Jappalin Manning of Flowertalk Perth. The result: a gorgeous outdoor setting of lush white flowers.
While white phalaenopsis orchids dyed with a hint of black were the main focus, Jappalin also used textured foliage such as pampas grass and smoke bush for a touch of rustic charm.
“The couple has originally planned on an all-white wedding, but I managed to convince them to add some varied tones, including blue and nude hues. Ultimately, they were very happy with my suggestions,” says Jappalin.
For the reception, the couple took it indoors to the brewery’s restaurant.
Jappalin turned the chic space into the perfect backdrop for a laid-back yet sophisticated soiree with majestic smoke bush centrepieces and refined settings.
“We wanted to create a setting that was a reflection of Jonte as a young and upcoming fashion designer, as well as of her stylish designs.”
A modern orchid bouquet to match a contemporary gown
Created by the bride, the off-shoulder gown featured geometric cut-outs and was covered in glittering Swarovski crystals. Jappalin added texture and organic beauty to the bride’s structured orchid bouquet with smoke bush sprigs and dusty miller leaves.
A nude-grey palette for the bridesmaids
Also designed and made by the bride herself, the bridesmaids’ nude pearl-embellished dresses matched the bouquets beautifully.
