Waterfront navy and coral wedding with a boho beach twist

Angela and James knew they wanted a fun and relaxed wedding and they challenged me to create a design for them with a preference for casual, yet romantic boho vibes, that also incorporated an ocean-loving twist, without going super thematic or over-the-top nautical... well hey there Boho Beachy Romance! This exciting design boasted the perfect ocean inspired colour palette of navy, coral and blush, with downplayed beachy details and just the right amount of coastal pops for a conceptually nautical flare.




For a fun-loving, laid back couple like Angela and James, a park is the absolute perfect place to tie the knot. Their ceremony took place in the beautiful Stewart Park, in Perth, in front of the most stunning round, wood arch, handmade by Angela's family, and adorned with a beautiful boho flare garland from Apropos Flowers.




These two had some serious wedding style going on, from Angela's all bead, Essence of Australia wedding gown and her ladies in mix and match floral maxi dresses, to the dapper groom and groomsmen in blue, navy and blush, casual suits - no stuffy jackets here - and matching suspenders. And then the bouquet... oh man I could stare at that gorgeous, protea filled, textured up to the max, big ass bouquet all day! But to top of Angela & James' perfect sleek meets chill wedding style, they brought in 1967 Impala (James' dream car) to take things next level and make an epic first entrance and Mr and Mrs.



The Crystal Palace was the perfect setting for their beach inspired wedding reception; the all glass structure boasting panoramic views of the waterfront and a starry sky overhead. In keeping with their informal wedding vibes, Angela and James opted for a cocktail style, stand-up reception, leaving plenty of room for dancing and a beverage or two always within arms reach. And you know that dance floor was pumping all night long!
