The team behind My Little Peony do it all – styling, flowers, cakes and signage, the team will even bring a pop-up caravan bar for the reception. But, it’s time you met the people behind the business.
Who is My Little Peony & what do you do?
We’re a small family team of creatives (Yep Mother, Daughter and carpenter wife) that like to think we are a bit different in the fact that we don’t just offer a single stand-alone service for our
We offer floral and event design, bar service with our vintage caravan bar Peony, pop up drink stations, cocktail bars, wedding cakes, desserts and grazing tables, custom signage and prop hire plus on the day set up and coordination. Why would we want to take on so much? We strongly believe all the small parts of a wedding make the whole experience and we like to offer our clients a stress-free option to have everything they want on the day without having to manage multiple vendors to bring it all together. Our team get to know the couple and their style and then go to work to plan and design a day that suits them and the celebration of their unique love
Describe your design aesthetic.
Whether it’s a rustic barn setting, a cottage garden or even a sleek, modern or industrial location, we’ve worked in pretty all of them and feel confident in executing something different each week! For us, it’s more about understanding who our couples are, what they love (and loathe) and creating a setting and mood that reflects them and allows their guests to soak up everything ‘them’ on the big day
There must be standout, you’ll never forget, wedding you’ve styled. Describe it too us.
Arrgh don’t make us choose!
We’ve been to over 200 + weddings in the past 2-3 years and they’re all so different and fun…we really could write a book full of the antics that go on behind the scenes!
One recent one that comes to mind though was out in country NSW about a 3-hour drive from where we’re based. The gorgeous bride gave us so much creative freedom to plan her colour palette, styling vibe and floral brief to bring to life spaces that represented her and her partner.
It was a lush and romantic wintery vibe but a mammoth job for our team as we were covering everything from florals, styling, signage, prop hire and furniture, grazing tables, the wedding cake and the post-ceremony bar service.
We had every single minute of the day mapped out and planned to a tee and then… the storm clouds rolled in. Our poor bride had her heart set on getting married outside by the properties gorgeous dam but thanks to the weather we had to tell her that just wasn’t going to happen (a hard conversation to have on someones wedding day!).
Fortunately for us, this venue has the most incredible shearing shed onsite…think large timber beams, striking sliding barn doors, old vintage machinery detailing and classic hardwood floors…a real photographers dream. After convincing the bride we’d make sure it was an ‘extra special’ indoor ceremony for them and her photos would still be stunning, we rushed around to relocate everything, styled up a storm [no pun intended] with hundreds of bunches of blooms on an oversized ceremony arch, added vintage Persian rugs, candles to set the mood and a heck of a lot of rose petals.
It was a wet weather plan we had to make the most of but the guests were warm and dry, the ceremony went off exactly as planned and after the ‘i do’s’ we checked in with the bride and she even commented it was more magical than she could have dreamt and should have been her original plan for the ceremony, not the backup because it turned out so well…we even had the venue staff say it was one of the best weddings they had ever seen, which is a pretty big honour as we know they see sooo many different setups each and every week – did we mention we love what we do!!
If you have a wedding free weekend, where would we find you?
Oh, they’re few and far between these days, especially in the prime wedding months when we do 3-4 weddings per week!
If we have a day off though you’d most likely find us either having long overdue catch ups with family and friends, visiting some of our fav places around Sydney like Cockatoo Island or Tegan would be watching the wife play sport on a Sunday and Gail would be shopping up a storm somewhere
