A Lush Modern Wedding In Sydney


Kristen and John-Paul wedded in a traditional church ceremony in Sydney… Followed by a party to remember with their family and friends at The Grounds of Alexandria. Wait till you see their pics, the reception was stunning!

The Wedding Day

Kristen herself is a florist and installed all the florals for her home, “Everyone thought I was crazy for designing and installing the flowers for my home. They kept saying to just rest but I love keeping myself (a little too) busy. I knew I wanted lots of greenery. As a florist, I think people underestimate what foliage and greenery can bring. It’s gorgeous on its own. There’s something special about doing something like that for your own wedding day!” 

“The best moment was our first dance. It felt very much like it was just him and I in the room. It was the one moment that was purely ours,” says Kristen.

Kristen and John-Paul’s wedding was truly spectacular. The unique styling from the team at Montana Flora created an enchanting atmosphere with an overwhelming array of flowers and even trees! Kristen had no clue what the team had planned for her, she instructed on the vibe she wanted and it was delivered. The couple opted to have all their formalities done first, meaning that most of the night was just a big celebration and party. The dance floor was never empty!

Advice from the Bride

“If I had to change just one thing, it would be getting off the dance floor for a second to just take a bite of my main meal which looked absolutely delicious. The wedding was a massive party (which is what everyone wants) so much so that we really did not stop dancing once we started. I only got to taste the shared platter, entree and the roving dessert – which were delicious!” Kristen.
