1. Peach As you might be able to tell by looking at my logo. I have a slight obsession with peach and apricot tones! So fresh and pretty. A great alternative to pink. Photo by Polka Dot Bride

2. Flannel flower Such a sweet and delicate number. Love their velvety texture. I recently used them to make this pretty wedding bouquet. Photo by Petal & Pod

3. Pinterest I could and do spend hours pinning images and making mood boards which I often refer to for my work. Such a great source of inspiration for brides and a good starting point if you’re unsure. You can view the fruits of my labour on my pinterest page

4. Bells Killcare Only about an hour and a half from Sydney. This venue is just lovely with a hamptons feel and expansive grounds. Have worked here and also celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary here! Photo courtesy of Bells Killcare.

5. Sweet Blooms Cakes If I wasnt a florist I’d try my hand at making wedding cakes. There are so many talented cake makers around but I have to say I am often in awe when I see the images of Sweet Bloom Cakes. They have done cakes for a few of my clients.

Ms Gingham says: Yes we are avid users of pinterest over here too!! Love it!
