THE CONFETTI SHOT
My absolute hands-down favourite moment of your wedding ceremony is THE CONFETTI SHOT.
There’s something symbolic about that exact moment…. the beaming smile on the newlyweds faces as they walk down the aisle, forever united in an intimate declaration of love, as guests bestow well wishes on them and shower them in confetti…....... It’s the most, love-filled, celebratory, magic moment.
Your faces are captured in time, expressing a mix of elation, satisfaction, relief and joy….
And I think we can all agree, that without confetti, the confetti shot would be just another wedding shot, not nearly as colourful and joyous.
Most wedding venues don't allow traditional confetti any more because it's hard to clean up and can be damaging to the natural environment. Rightly so! I love the look of glitter as much as the next Mardi Gras queen but did you see ABC's War on Waste? If you are in any way environmentally aware and are interested in reducing the footprint of your wedding, then eco-confetti is the perfect solution.
The good news is I’ve got you covered with a beautiful flower blend that is locally sourced and made with love ensuring you get ‘the shot’ on your day.
WHY ECO-CONFETTI ?
Every confetti mix has a diverse mix of seasonal flowers made from bio-degradable dried flowers.
Think gorgeous blends of roses, lavender, jasmine, bougainvillea, calendula, corn flower, hydrangea, delphinium, eucalyptus, Australian natives and lots more.
The confetti is supplied with cones.
You can choose from:
Not everyone needs a confetti cone. You will achieve a great shot by ordering enough cones for family in the front row and the guests that line the aisle.
DELIVERY / COLLECTION
Each and every batch is hand-made with love by me and my little helper Sashy-Bears x
If you are wondering where I source all the flowers from....well it's a combination of foraging and donations.
When Ash from Film and Foliage reached out to me to offer me her flower ‘WASTE’ for my eco-confetti, I couldn’t believe my luck. I could have kissed her. It was a match made in heaven. Ash is someone in the wedding industry, that I already admired from afar (#instastalker) because of her talent, creativity AND eco-credentials.
Ash has been an eco-champion since she set up her Floral Design Business. She was one of the first florists in Newcastle to go 100% foam-free. Floral foam is essentially the plastic bag of the floral industry. It’s an incredibly convenient tool for florists, but it’s a single-use plastic packed full of carcinogens. Ash has been doing a stellar job educating her clients and the wedding community in general on its potential harm to the environment. Because of her, foam-free florals is an idea that is slowly picking up steam and gaining traction with couples that want to have stunning décor but don’t want to put a toxic toll on the earth.
Ash and I love the notion that floral waste isn’t actually waste at all, but can be repurposed, and live a SECOND life, spreading even more joy as eco-confetti on people’s wedding days.
Huge thank you to Ash for her big generous heart: it’s obvious from everything she does that she cares about the planet, her clients, her community.
