Once we discovered that Nadia and Jimmy were engaged in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, we knew we had to recreate a ‘getaway’ experience for their guests. It seemed so fitting given Nadia & Jimmy’s relaxed and down to earth nature.
This is what our team have designed for their day:
The ceremony, a classic elegant feel with a neutral colour palette that sat harmoniously against the ripe green vines at BAIE Wines.
Post ceremony, it’s time to grab a drink and mingle! We created a relaxed lounge setting under the Peppercorn tree fitted out with its own cocktail bar and brightly coloured blooms, the perfect setting for guests be treated to refreshing Mint & Lychee Coolers and Pina Coladas served by the oh-so-cool Tommy Collins crew, dressed in rolled up cinos and open collared shirts.
The guests were then ushered to the marquee for dinner. A glam resort feel with sea views to match.
They were welcomed into the clear marquee with a stunning roof installation created by our floral team; an unstructured mass of delicate foliage and white seasonal flowers cascaded down and complimented the three long tables set for Nadia & Jim’s inner circle of family and friends.
We used 450 bunches of green foliage, over 980 bunches of flowers including Hydrangrea, David Austin roses, Lisianthus, Amy Lou roses, and over 200 stems of Phalaenopsis orchids.
Nadia and Jimmy had their first dance on the open air dance floor under the stars and strung lights. Resort style lounges and cocktail tables offered guests a comfortable seat and a place to rest their drinks as they danced. No wedding is complete without a fully stocked outdoor bar decked out with more gorgeous floral arrangements.
This one was EPIC.. we calculated our planning, design and floral team would have clocked over 900 hours of planning, designing, prepping, floral arranging, setting up and packing down by the end of the wedding.
When the white marquee cover came off and we lit the final candle and straightened the last chair, we looked back and knew the sunburn, heatsrtroke, sleep deprivation, soreness, cuts and dirty feet were totally worth it… It’s still one of our favourite weddings we’ve ever created.

Our work is tough! It’s hot, we’ve been working 15-18 hour days and we’re exhausted.
There were some tears from Marie at the end of this, we were so proud of our team and although the elements and time constraints proved to be difficult, we soldiered on and knew that the result would be bigger than us. It was. A statement that we and our team love what we do and despite the obstacles, we will only produce quality every time. The result… an event full of heart and soul.
To our team we love you guys. Your drive, support for each other and your passion for each project have made us so proud.
Chloe, Kat, Sammy, Zoe, Vivien, Farren, Abby, Bec, Jax, Cath & Anna.. Your talents are killer! And to our additional crew – Chloe M, Danni, Tania and Jess… Thank you for your awesomeness!
