Georgina & Andrew truly wanted their wedding to be unique and they wanted to treat their guests to a Melbourne City Wedding. With International guests attending the wedding the location was important. Melbourne Flower Merchant made the perfect location for the ceremony, guests arrived on trams and stopping right in the front of their destination. The ceremony was set on the Bourke Street window end of Melbourne Flower Merchant, a clear acrylic floral tower and neon sign made the perfect backdrop along with the passing city trams creating that unique photo opportunity.

From the onset Georgina really wanted Flower Temple to develop her inspired vision, it was all about a colour palette. It had to be funky, luxurious but more importantly had to maintain a feminine appeal. Raspberry pink, blush pink with black accents was the final colour palette. When it came to the bouquet the bride opted for a small bridal bouquet in blush tones with black embellishments whilst the maid of honour carried a blush pink with popping pink bouquet much larger than the bride's bouquet.

The flower selection of choice was left to the experts to choose the best seasonally available blooms at the time. This included Peony, Roses, Rhododendron, Stock, Orchids, Black Succulents, Date Palm and black foliage.

The table centrepieces were designed to be alternating. One selection was a low profile black square vase with an opulent display of flowers, the other table design was rectangle vases diagonally aligned to match.

After the ceremony, guests were treated to an open bar at Melbourne Flower Merchant whilst the newly married couple trekked through the city in sought of some iconic city backdrops . Next stop for the guests was to board the city tram to meet the couple for a wonderful dining experience and night filled with entertainment and celebrations at Sketch, Docklands.
