EVENT - OUR BABY PARTY
Sunday 30 July 2017
Sammy and I never really thought of ourselves as "baby shower" people. Having just got married and announced our pregnancy, it seemed a little self indulgent to have another celebration in our honour (not to mention to receive more gifts, our friends and family were very naughty and didn't heed our "no presents or else" warning). But after some gentle persuasion, we decided to throw a baby bash just three weeks before our little man was born. And oh I'm so glad we did! It was the most wonderful day! We hosted all of our favourite people for a special afternoon in the studio, featuring Daddy's Bar (DIY G&T's), Mummy's Bar (white chocolate and all of mamas pregnancy cravings) and a photo wall where all our guests could write a message to our little man. It was important to us to invite all our nearest and dearest (not just the gals) to share our special day. We believe it takes a village to raise a baby, so of course we wanted our whole village to be there! It really was the loveliest day and we're so grateful to all the wonderful suppliers who helped us bring it all together. Jacqui, the signage was amaaaazing and brought the whole day together, and Sophie you captured the day so beautifully (as always!) All the details below xx

Sophie & Joel
Thrilled to see Sophie & Joel's gorgeous wedding featured on the Hello May blog this week! Styled by the talented ladies at Short & Spook, this one challenged us to combine dried foliages, earthy tones and minimal flowers to create a raw and edgy feel. Loved everything about this one (don't we always!) Check out the whole celebration on Hello May xx
REAL WEDDING - MEAGAN AND RYAN
Tuesday 20 June 2017
We may have let out an excited squeal or two when these amazing images from Meagan and Ryan's special day landed in our inbox a few weeks ago. Captured oh so beautifully by Michael Briggs Photography, this Yarra Valley wedding was the ultimate combination of modern glam and relaxed country styling. Meagan's floral brief was tonnes of texture, moody hues, but not "too rustic" and we happily obliged with one of our fave floral combos to date - smoke bush, papas grass, olive foliage, david austin roses, hydrangea, sedum, ivy berry, queen anne's lace, silver suede and a couple of cheeky succulents for good measure. LOVE! xx
MEAGAN & RYAN
"Thank you Kate, I loved what you created for us! I didn't want to leave my bouquet, it was just gorgeous, and the geo shapes looked incredible. Thank you so much!!"
"They were sooo pretty! Just loved it all. Thank you again!"
ONE FINE DAY MELBOURNE
Monday 19 June 2017
A couple of snaps from our time at One Fine Day Melbourne last month, captured by One Fine Day (above) and Bianca Virtue (below). This year we created the Mary Mary Bouquet Boutique to allow all the beautiful brides-to-be out there to try on their dream bouquet before the big day. The dark and moody bouquets were by far the most popular, which is a trend we've really noticed with all our brides this season! Everyone was particularly curious about the black roses that made an appearance in a few of our designs. These beauties are dyed, but that doesn't make them any less spectacular! You can expect to see them feature in a few more exciting projects before the seasons' end. Thank you to our faves at Dann Event Hire for the beautiful bar, mirror and wire mesh backdrop, to Joe from The Big Letter Co. for the amazing circular plinths, and of course to the wonderful team at OFD for having us back for another year - we first launched Mary Mary at One Fine Day three years ago and it has truly given us the most wonderful experiences, connections and opportunities. We couldn't be more grateful. Any wedding industry folk out there trying to decide whether to join this amazing team of vendors, do it, we promise you won't be disappointed! xx
REAL WEDDING - FAB AND DANNI
Monday 19 June 2017
What a lovely surprise it was to receive these gorgeous images (captured by Free The Bird) of Danni and Fab's divine summer wedding back in Feb. From our very first meeting with Danni we just knew this wedding was going to be a stunner. Textured white and green blooms, cascading bouquets and one of our favourite installations to date - a series of suspended floral and foliage circles over the dance floor at the amazing Glasshouse in Richmond *heart eyes*. Danni was an absolute dream to work with and came to our meetings with so many ideas, but also with complete confidence in our team to bring her vision to life. Thank you for choosing Mary Mary Danni, we adored working with you!! We really are beyond lucky to connect with such beautiful brides. This is one very special day we won't be forgetting in a hurry xx
DANNI & FAB
"We wanted to drop you a note with a special thank you for the beautiful blooms you produced at our wedding. They were just stunning! And OMG - that installation - love love love it!!! I can't tell you how lovely it was to be dancing under it..."
