SOPHISTICATED ELEGANT WEDDING
Belinda & Tom
Sandringham Yaght Club
It is not very common practice for a groom to attend wedding flower consultations, let alone show so much knowledge and interest in the floral decor. It was a breath of fresh air......we savoured the moment and it made for one of the most enjoyable and memorable wedding consultations in Lillypad's 11 year history.
Both Belinda and Tom had spent lots of time on their own researching and styling their wedding themselves. With a sophisticated, elegant and neutral colour scheme they came to us with ideas on what they wanted to achieve for their floral decor. Together we then creatively selected, coordinated and styled the flowers to suit their wedding.
Keeping it simple, elegant and sophisticated, Belinda wearing a glamorous gown with a detailed crystal waistline walked with her parents down the white carpet. With her bridesmaids in various uniquely custom designed gowns, Belinda's bridal bouquets featured simple double white lisianthus blooms... with their soft ruffled petals creating a soft and feminine appeal. We created a feature composite white singapore orchid buttonhole for Tom to best represent his ideal flower of choice - the gardenia (with a hot summers day gardenias do not hold well). The groomsmens and fathers adorned a simple white orchid bloom, while the mothers wore a white orchid wrist corsage.
The ceremony featured various heights of cylinder vases filled with white gladioli, phalaenopsis orchids, lisianthus and calla lillies on large white plinths that were all supplied by Lillypad. It made for a very stylish and contemporary setting for their beautiful ceremony. Back at the reception a similar style was created with various heights of cylinders each featuring a single cluster of blooms.

(DVD) I have always been a fan of Julia Roberts and the mvoeis she stars in her smile is infectious, it lights up the screen. In 1997, she made a comeback with a starring role in the romantic comedy My Best Friend's Wedding. The film went on to become one of the most successful girly mvoeis of the whole decade, and after watching it earlier tonight on TV, it's not hard to see why. It still holds up seven years later. The comedy is fresh, funky and slick. The plot is nothing original, but it holds up brilliantly because of the film's four main stars. You have Julia Roberts, of course, who is no doubt a future Hollywood legend. Then there's Cameron Diaz in one of her best film roles not quite topping her sexual cameo in The Mask three years earlier, but still bringing much humour to her role. Rupert Everett and Dermot Mulroney are the two main male actors and also do their roles justice.Julia Roberts plays Julianne Potter, a fast-talking confident Chicago food critic who used to date Michael O'Neal (Dermot Mulroney) in their college days. They since broke up after nine years and moved apart. They made a pact, however, that if by the age of 28 they both were not married, then they would marry each other. When Julianne receives a call from Michael three weeks before that pact deadline, she assumes he is ringing to get back with her. However, Michael is calling to introduce Julianne to his seemingly wonderful, irritatingly perfect fiancee Kimberly Wallace (Cameron Diaz) and announce their wedding which is taking place in just three days. That leaves Julianne three short days to break up the marriage and win back the man she has only just realised she loved all along. She will either win or lose that's the conclusion. Ronald Bass' perfectly-constructed screenplay keeps the viewer on the edge, forever guessing if she will win her battle. Julianne's gay friend George Downes (Rupert Everett) agrees to help her, but only to a certain extent, and he is a hilarious asset to the comedic intentions put forth by the writers of the film.The film's plot seems at times far-fetched, and it is, but this is a light-hearted, romantic comedy with many cliche9s built in for good measure! The comedy is spot-on there aren't many laugh out loud moments, but more of a continual giggle-fest that will have you smiling for most of the film. Julia Roberts is a certain crowd-puller. People from all over the world will flock to see her mvoeis, and this one was exception. Cameron Diaz was half the superstar in this film that she is today, and her glowing smile and charasmatic confidence shines through in her ditzy role. Rupert Everett reminds me of Hugh Grant in this film, which can be no bad thing!The film has many memobrable scenes, including Kimberely's hilarious karoke nightclub performance of I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself. The restaurant hilarity of the group's performance of Dianne Warwick's I Say A Little Prayer is also perfectly executed, with only professional directors pulling it off amateurs could have easily messed it up big time. The big city bread truck chase is hilarious, and the film has many touching moments. Julianne's constantly foiled attempts to sabotage the impending wedding are brilliant too: most notably the e-mail/falling off the chair scene. This film is pure comedic brilliance. It could have easily fallen flat on its face, but it didn't because of the right balance between fresh actors and excellent dialogue.
