As a florist, Louisa is surrounded by nature’s blooming flora every day, often creating seasonal bouquets that were inspired by significant celebrations in her customer’s lives. On 26 August, it was Louisa’s turn to mark her own significant moment, holding her own bouquet of budding white roses mixed in with vibrant purple ranunculus, she walked down the aisle in InterContinental Sydney’s Harbour Room to wed the love of her life, Mark.
Flexing her flair for flora, Louisa and our Wedding Executive, Kendall Funnell, made sure both ceremony and reception were adorned with fresh seasonal styling. Red rose petals were scattered around table settings in The Treasury Room, wildflower arrangements were intertwined with romantic tea-light candles, even Louisa and Mark’s wedding cake was embellished with an in-theme blend of pantones colour of the year, Greenery, and rich reds and creams. Louisa’s choice of location gave a strong nod to her love of all things nature-bound with the Harbour Room overlooking a sea of native horticulture in the Royal Botanic Gardens below, and her wedding photos perched atop level 31 to take advantage of views across Sydney’s iconic Harbour.
Louisa’s personal approach to her wedding styling made the day all the more special: it was truly reflective of her whimsical notions of romance and her deep love for both Mark and the world of flora and fauna. Congratulations Louisa and Mark, we feel so honoured to have shared the beginning of your next chapter with you.
Louisa shared her experience with InterContinental Sydney here:
"From the very first moment we contacted the InterContinental hotel regarding our wedding they have been exceptional in their help and attention to detail. Nothing is too much trouble and every detail was as perfect as we had hoped. A sincere thank you to all the staff at The InterContinental Hotel for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. All the staff surpassed our expectations with their service and professionalism.
Our guests haven't stopped complimenting the food & service and gorgeous hotel aesthetics since! From the minute family and friends and we checked into the hotel the day before, we were totally looked after and put at ease. The InterContinental is a very special place and I would highly recommend it as a superb wedding venue! Special thank you to Kendall for taking such good care of us. We are already looking forward to our next reason to come and stay! See you soon.”
