There's little that makes my heart sing more than fresh flowers - clumped heads in the garden, tall stems in a vase, wildflowers in the bush. I'm getting the chance to help make my sister's bouquet next month so I've had wedding flowers on my mind. I thought I would look through the archives of my website Wedding Ideas Australia and pull together some of my favourite wedding posies to share with you too:
Peonies are my favourite flower of all time. So fluffy and luxurious. These pink peonies were arranged by Style by Nature in Port Melbourne. Read more about Samantha and Billy's Yarra Valley wedding.

Ivory roses are classic, but teamed with the dark berries they are modern too. This bouquet of Emanuel ivory roses with blackberries, wrapped in black lace was created by Stylish Stamens on the Gold Coast. Read more about Bree and Josh's Gold Coast wedding.

I'm a huge fan of using native Australian flora where possible - embracing our heritage and celebrating the beauty of our own environment. This bouquet of Eucalyptus flowers, tetragona nuts, bottle brush, Flannel flowers and soft blue gum leaves by Lazy Tulip in Croydon, NSW is really something special.

More peonies! This time wedding white with green foliage and wrapped subtly with unbleached linen ribbon and fixed with a few sweet pearls. This bouquet by Boatshed Market in Cottesloe, WA perfectly suited the relaxed atmosphere at this wedding, full of handmade details. Read more about Danielle and John's Perth wedding.
David Austin roses scream wedding and this design by Menail Floral Creations (Menai, NSW) features cream and white roses with blackberries and grey foliage for depth. Read more about Kate and Brendan's Sydney wedding.

This compact bouquet of white lilies and roses is fresh and modern - perfect for a pared back wedding or a petite Bride. The green lily stamen and foliage give the posy interest. Such a sophisticated look.

This truly glorious bouquet by Blooming Bridal in Adelaide is a girl's dream come true - pale pink peonies, pale pink David Austin roses, white mini roses and a scattering of white Singapore orchids. I could eat it.

It's cheeky, but I've also included my own wedding bouquet. I think it's important to work with the flowers that are in season, so my only request of the Eumundi Flower Lady was to create something to go with my deep red colour theme. I think she did an amazing job with this mixed seasonal bouquet. Read more about our Sunshine Coast wedding.

You don't need to spend the earth on a gorgeous bouquet. One of the simplest, and sweetest wedding flowers I have seen were my friend Rebecca's red and pink tulips that added a pop of colour against her wedding dress and worked beautifully with her rural country setting outdoors wedding.
