So it's time to inspire you with some of our favourite floral decor ideas from real life weddings right here at the Court.

Foliage and Candles

We love to see out front steps decorated with flowers and foliage, it makes an extra special setting to outdoor wedding ceremonies held under our huge porch too... This beautifully simple arrangement of foliage, braches and candles looked gorgeous in the day and really came to life at night, it made the perfect spot for some striking photos by Bigeye.

Statement Centrepiece Flowers

Centrepieces are getting taller and more creative each time we look. We are so enjoying all the creative and beautiful table flowers in the Gillyflower. This beautiful suspended arrangement looks like it's floating on air...

We still love trees on tables as a wedding centrepiece, both potted real tress and faux trees with light up branches look magical

Wedding Wreaths

It's true, wreaths are no longer banished to December weddings, the wedding wreath is ever growing in popularity and we've seen some beautiful variations. We especially loved these minimalist bands decorated with eucalyptus leaves. They looked stunning adorning the chairs all along the wedding aisle of this fabulous weekend long festival wedding

And they were just as beautiful used to decorate the deep earthen walls of The Gillyflower at the reception. Wreaths are versatile as well as beautiful!

Simple Posies

Just as centrepieces are growing up, they are also growing down too, we absolutely love simple little posies of flowers on tables, they have an almost fairy quality, and look beautiful displayed with candles and other accessories.

The potted cactus adds a gorgeously quirky feel to this table...

Wedding Cake Flowers

Although naked wedding cakes seem to have finally dwindled slightly, using fresh flowers to decorate the wedding cake is showing no sign of slowing, and we couldn't be happier - we can't get enough of this trend! Mixing flowers with candles here steps the wow factor up another notch too...

Flower Walls & Backdrops

Flowers on the wall at your reception creates a beautiful backdrop for speeches, and doubles perfectly as a selfie wall too.

Top Table Flowers

Decorating the top table with flowers is another lovely way to frame the bride and groom in the speech photos.

Minimalist Table Flowers

Sometimes simplicity can be just as striking as complexity. These beautiful minimalist centrepieces look beautiful with simple accessories.

Ceremony & Aisle Flowers

Flowers are no longer just for receptions, especially when statement pieces are made to be carried from one space to another. We have seen some simply glorious ceremony flowers recently.

The gorgeous festival wedding was styled with statement Eucalyptus and flowers to match the bridal bouquet, and what a perfect backdrop it made...

Tall statement flowers seem to be all the range in the ceremony room too. These beautiful white bloom and foliage arrangements perfectly complimented the mandap at this stunning Indian ceremony.

The tall and ethereal English aisle flowers that Amber Persia created for our June wedding fayre are still top of our list of ailse decorations.

The bigger the better with these fun and beautiful floral art pieces. We love flower arches, indoors and outdoors, they always frame a photo perfectly.
