There are flowers in January.  It’s a great month to get married…. Tulips are already out and florists are looking to fill the month after a very busy December and a soon-to-be-busy February with Valentine’s Day.  Consider the opportunity for all those snowy pictures and everyone needs a fur wrap!

The girls wore black and carried white and green bouquets with touches of silver brunia, wrapped with black satin and some gold sequinned ribbon.  The bride carried a white bouquet with touches of burgundy ranunculus, hypericum, leucadendron and TONNES of seeded eucalyptus with a few strands of dangling gold sequinned ribbon.  What’s a winter wedding without seeded eucalyptus?  I don’t think it’s possible 😀

This was a couple who was on a budget, and we made the pretty happen without a huge price tag.  For the reception the bride purchased trays and votives and collected pincones all year long to have enough for her centrepieces.  She collected WAY more than she needed, so pinecones were EVERYWHERE.  I then came in and put all the elements together for her, including adding the seeded eucalyptus to make the metallics shine against the rustic elements.  The couple spent a little bit more on the mantle pieces which was a focal point on the room in the Ancaster Mill.

With a few good ideas, some time and dedication, we executed a pretty January wedding on a budget!
