Celebrant Julie Muir on the special meaning behind Jenna’s bouquet

When I learned that Jenna was giving the girls at Jade McIntosh Flowers & Styling free rein to design her wedding bouquet, I got an exciting idea – why not add extra meaning to this Hunter Valley elopement by selecting flowers that not only fit with Jenna and Andrew’s aesthetic and personality, but also the sentiment behind such an important, memorable day? Together, we did just that!
A single white phalaenopsis orchid The hero of the bouquet, representing refined beauty. This is symbolic of Jenna.
White garden roses Charm and thoughtfulness, which I think match Andrew very well too.
Shimmery peach Colombian roses Sweetness, sincerity, and gratitude. Qualities they’ll both need for a lasting, happy marriage!
Quicksand Colombian roses These symbolise new beginnings and everlasting love. I don’t think there could have been a more perfect choice.
Dollar gum Representing strength, clarity, and focus. A great way to start a marriage.
Magnolia foliage Dignity, longevity, and perseverance. Other qualities that are needed for all relationships to thrive and last a lifetime!
Pash & Dash elopements, like Andrew and Jenna’s, are about no stress, no pressure and no distractions – just you and your best friend committing your lives to each other in an intimate and unforgettable way.

A big congratulations to the lovely couple!

Julie is one of our favourite celebrants in the Hunter Valley! She’s just an all-round lovely person too, and has a fantastic wedding blog of her own. Check it out below x
