A florist’s wedding is always going to be filled with beautiful blooms – and lots of them.
Budding florist Sarah Boal assisted her aunt of Alexander House of Flowers to create elegant blooms to match her lilac colour palette. “There were amazing flowers everywhere, a total of 43 table centres to be exact,” praises the WA bride. “The bouquets where exactly how I pictured them – absolutely beautiful.”
Sarah 24, and partner Shaye Cruickshank, 26, married at their vineyard wedding on March 28, 2015. Sarah says the reception styled by Little Love Story and Special Occasions also exceeded her expectations. “The reception looked like a wedding from the magazines, there were arrangements of flowers all down the tables, and the room was decorated perfectly,” she praises.
Rewind to Sarah’s 22nd birthday when boyfriend Shaye proposed. They were visiting the vacant block of their soon-to-be new home. “There was no slab and, at that stage, the sand hadn’t even been leveled, just two front steps and a small fence, but the significance was perfect,” smiles Sarah.
They planned their special day to be held in the one location — Swan Valley’s Carilley Estate. “The ceremony location was just breathtaking and so was the reception,” says Sarah. But before she walked down the aisle, there were plenty of laughs with her bridal gang. “[My bridesmaid] Katelyn had just got her hair and make-up completed and she came in and said to me ‘I would be worried about being up-staged by me as I’m looking pretty good!’ laughs the bride.

Shaye says he loves that Sarah is compassionate and will go out of her way to help others.
“Our celebrant Suzy Thom did an amazing job, the wording was personal to us including mentioning our favorite things and our little puppy Bruce,” praises Sarah.
“Nick, our photographer, and Billie, his assistant, took some amazing photos,” says Sarah.
This talented bride also made her four-tier wedding cake!
