We are back from our honeymoon now and just wanted to shoot you an email to say thank you so much for being apart of our special day.
You guys did such an amazing job with our wedding. From our very first contact to the planning and lead up to the day and the day itself - everything was incredible and went without a hitch.
We have had so many comments on how gorgeous the florals were and all the decor too. You really bought my vision to life I felt like i was in an enchanted forest and your talent for colour and floral pairing is inspiring! (everything just popped again the blue!) and OMG the last minute addition of the surprise peonies to my florals was like christmas and all my birthdays came at once!!
Thank you for helping to bring to life what was our dream wedding – it would not of been the same with any other florist/stylist. You were also just so lovely to deal with and I will 100% recommend you guys to everyone!

To Darlene and the Peonies team,
I cannot thank you enough for the amazing work you did for our wedding. You were hands down the most professional and caring team that I encountered throughout my entire wedding planning experience. The room you designed and decorated for us was absolutely stunning. So many of my guests commented and said they had never seen a more beautiful room at a wedding. Even one of the staff at the venue stated that she had never seen such a beautiful room. You guys exceeded all my expectations. Not only was the room stunning, the bouquets were also just perfect.Thank you so much for all that you did. Darlene you are so special and you are so amazing at what you do. You made my day.
My husband and I were planning our wedding whilst living interstate and were eager to find a stylist that could bring our ideas to life. The Peonies team were exactly this from the beginning to end. From the moment I had my initial Skype meeting with Darlene I knew we had chosen the perfect team. Darlene was able to translate the vision we had and make it a reality. The team designed our invites, menus, bonbonniere piccolo bottle labels, bouquets/buttonholes and styled our entire ceremony and reception. On the day I remember seeing everything come together and look exactly how we had imagined it and so much more. We had so many guests commenting on how beautifully everything was tied together. Darlene and Brooke were so easy to deal with through the entire process and were in regular contact. We absolutely cannot think of a better team than Peonies to style a wedding as they literally took care of everything and made our day magical.
Hi Brooke & Darlene, I'm so sorry it has taken me this long to email you - life has been a little crazy the past two months! Adam and I just wanted to say the biggest THANK YOU for everything you did for our wedding. Words cannot explain how blown away we were with everything - from the bouquets to the table decorations, everything was just perfect! There is no doubt that you are incredible at what you do and we couldn't have even imagined everything to be as amazing as what it was. We only wish that we could relive the day over again and we would recommend someone getting married to use Peonies in a heartbeat!
Colour Palette: Soft pink, deep pink with touches bronze & black
Just want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the beautiful flowers and set up on our wedding. The bouquets are absolutely stunning! Love the little flower crown for my baby Chloe, it's beautiful!!!
You guys have made my dream wedding come true, I can't thank you enough!!!
Firstly we must apologise for the delay in responding to this email but also the delaying in thanking you so much for helping make our big day so special. It was such a crazy time of year when we got back from our honeymoon and now that we have our photos back I thought it was a great time to get our acts together in thanking the people that helped make our special day the most amazing days of our life.
We just wanted to send you a huge thank you for the florals, stationery and styling you did for our wedding. It was all absolutely stunning. My bouquet was exceptional and more than I could ever imagine, the florals for our ceremony were utterly romantic and the room for our reception was beyond our wildest dreams. It sparkled, it lit up the room and the table florals were just exquisite. All our guests commented on the feel of our reception and the gorgeous flowers that seemed to go on for days.
You guys were able to take my vision, make suggestions and create what were the most perfect bridal and guest tables with the right amount of impact. Brooke, you used your super creative skills to design our stationery that tied together with the feel of the room and created the wow factor from the first moment our guests would have opened their invites to the minute they left our reception.
From the first meeting I knew you were going to create something spectacular. You were both so professional and friendly in all our dealings and communication. No question or request was too much and your guidance and suggestions were greatly appreciated.
The biggest moment for me from our flowers was when I showed my mum my bouquet and she burst into tears - it was an emotional time but they were all tears of joy. I was also gob smacked when I walked into our reception, that bridal table was beyond my expectations.
You both made our day extremely special and provided a service that was second to none. Thank you both so much from the bottom of our hearts.
Wow - just wow. Our special day was made so much more amazing with your creative vision and execution.
We cannot thank you enough for having the flexibility to accommodate our many different weather contingencies. Even though we so desperately wanted to have our ceremony under the Fig Tree, in the courtyard was just as beautiful (if not better, as it pleased those guests who thought we better bet off getting married in a church!) and the reception indoors was much more conformable on account of the humidity and late evening thunderstorms.
Your work is truly beautiful. I cannot describe how awestruck I was sitting at our bridal table, just taking it in all. Again - thank you so much. We will definitely be recommending Peonies to all of our friends.
I just wanted to write you a quick note on how much we loved what you did for us in making our wedding day so special.
From the first time Shaun and I emailed you about inquiring for your services it has been nothing but smooth sailing, professionalism from yourself and Brooke and such a great experience. You both knew from the beginning what our vision for our wedding was and you both worked tirelessly to make that vision come to life!
You are both so easy to talk to and nothing was ever a problem or an issue. It was such a nice experience working with you both as you were there supporting us from the beginning and made sure everything we wanted was incorporated into our wedding. Your knowledge of the industry and styling is of such a high standard which was seen and experienced by myself and Shaun from our face to face meetings, contact over email and finally seeing Peterson House decorated to perfection.
Your attention to detail is amazing. You and Brooke made Peterson House look absolutely spectacular. The flowers were impeccable, your attention to detail is and was second to none and you made everything look so magical and stunning. We had so many of our guests comment on how beautiful Peterson House looked all decorated.
Our invites, menu and place cards, bouquets, button holes, guest book and seating chart were very classy and absolutely perfect. I could not have wished for anything better.
You are two very amazing and talented ladies! I am so happy that Shaun and I choose you to be such a big and special part of our wedding day!
I will and have been recommending your services to anyone who is getting married.
P.S I loved that we got to have a photo with you. I will send it through to you when we get our photos back.
Dear team at Peonies Floral Design, It was our absolute privilege to have your team attend to the styling, stationary and florals for our wedding on the 12th of September 2015. From the moment Joseph & I met with Darlene we felt reassured and without a doubt excited about our upcoming nuptials. Every little detail we discussed was achievable and mind mapping during the meeting with Darlene took our ideas to a whole other level. During the lead up to our wedding both Darlene and Brooke were accessible, prompt with their responses and easy to talk to. On the wedding day we were able to relax knowing the styling & florals were in great hands. From the moment my bouquet arrived to the ceremony and the moment we walked into the reception was breath taking. The styling and florals far exceeded any expectation Joseph and I had and the attention to detail was exquisite! Your team was able to take our vision and make it reality. Our first dance song was Dreams by Gabrielle, she sings "dreams can come true". The team at Peonies Floral Design made our dreams come true! We truly can not thank you enough. Again thankyou. Regards Chanelle & Joseph Kalk
Well, its nearly been three months since our wedding (how is this possible?!?!) but we had a super long honeymoon! And we have recently got our photos back! But I am sorry its taken me so long to write to you.
I really wanted to take the opportunity to send some pics and to thank you and your team for the INCREDIBLE job you guys did on our wedding day at Tuscany Wine Estate on the 2nd May 2015. WOW! We were absolutely thrilled with the way everything turned out and all the additional extra touches which you added to our special day to make it even more perfect.
The wedding ceremony was so well organised and thanks to you, it was the most incredible wet weather plan we could have hoped for. I know the venue were really unorganised and I hate to think what would have happened if you weren’t there. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate your effort on the day! Keegan and I even spoke about how the ceremony was actually so much more intimate than it would have been had we have been on the lawn! It was perfect and we really appreciate your organisation to make this wet weather plan so great!! The ceremony was perfect and everything we wanted it to be.
As you know, the hour of lawn games didn’t exactly work out as planned, but it meant that the reception started an hour earlier and everyone was having so much fun (and were blind drunk) by 6pm! ha ha BEST!
The hanging floral installation, the decoration/signage for the cheese platters and the dessert bar was just BEYOND! Best dessert bar ever! The dessert bags, the hanging jars, the photo backdrop, the signage with the little falling confetti…. the candles and that main table with the coloured jars and flowers. JUST PERFECT! Everyone raved about how spectacular the reception was and we couldn’t agree more. The cakes were absolutely heavenly!!
So as you can see from this rambling email - we are so happy and grateful and we cannot thank you enough. Please pass on our thanks to your team as well. Honestly, Keegan and the boys told me how hard you all were working on the day and I am soooo grateful you were there. It would not have worked out even close to how i imagined, had I left it up to the venue. And it was even more spectacular than I could have imagined, thanks to you and all the extra additions you created to support my vision.
AND A SPECIAL THANKS to you for THE AMAZING FLOWERS. Seriously stunning! Best flowers ever. The bouquets, the flower crowns, Bridget and my hair flowers, and the buttonholes were so perfect, and you choose the perfect colours for the boys suits. As soon as you delivered the flowers to the house I was staying with my girls and mum, we were all so excited! They really made us get in the mood as soon as we saw them! Absolutely stunning. So many people have asked me about my flowers! I have recommended you and your team already… and I would not hesitate to recommend you in the future.
Darlene - THANK YOU! We couldn’t be happier with our perfect wedding day despite mother nature and all the rain)!! It was perfect.
Firstly I wanted to thank you and your team so much for designing and decorating for our wedding day in April. The room looked absolutely breath taking! Everyone commented on how beautifully styled the room was. Our guests were all in awe with the chandeliers as they have never seen anything like it before. From the bouquets to the shutter backdrop to the flower chandeliers, EVERYTHING was sheer perfection and more than what I had hoped and wished for. We can not thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication...you are all truly amazing!!!
Thank you again Darlene, Brooke and the Amazing team at Peonies
