KYM & GREG, BELGENNY FARM, CAMDEN NSW

The moment I laid eyes on our floral, my heart jumped out of my chest. Everything was absolutely perfect! Thank you so much Emma
— Kym Sheild, Bride

The lovely Kym Berenschot (as she was known before the I Do's), contacted me from Vancouver, Canada whilst she and Greg were still living and working abroad. The plan was to relocate back to Australia just before the wedding which meant we first met and had our design discussions over Skype. Kym was the first Bride I had started a design concept for floral with over Skype, and although I was worried that without the face to face contact it would be difficult to interprate what was in her heart, it couldn't have gone more smoothly. Along with Pinterest, Skype became a brilliant way to manage all the initial appointments that are needed to then go and design and price a quote. 

Kym (a primary school teacher) & Greg (a photographer) are lovers of nature and the great outdoors. They love colour and wanted something creative and unstructured, passionate to have their wedding be vibrant and natural. We dove into a Spring inspired palette and threw into the air every combo we could think of, settling on peachy/apricot hues with ivory, white, green and pink.

Kym & Greg had never seen Belgenny farm in Camden but were drawn the the historic agricultural site that once housed John and Elizabeth Macarthur. Belgenny farm is an open 5000 acres so we were open to ideas about where to locate the ceremony space. I hadn't been to the property either so as soon as they hit Australian soil we had a site inspection and walked the grounds deciding where might work best for all aspects of the wedding. This site has beautiful afternoon light, a weathered backdrop of the old stables and room to seat all the guests-tick, tick, tick.

  Table floral included hellebore, snowball viburnum, snapdragons, honeysuckle, watsonia, ranunculi, chrysanthemum, poppy, rose and sweet pea.......the mother load!

The reception area is an old historic building, the original Granary heavy with wooden ironbark beams and posts and a recycled brick floor which although beautiful really lifted when the room was lightened with white linen and chairs. The floral, although colourful, floated just above the table in glass footed bowls, trails of honeysuckle creeping out to meet the guests, giving a delicate balance to the room and bringing the outdoors in.
