David Austen Roses

We are currently developing some inspiration for a gorgeous wedding couple who are having a divine vintage elegance theme. While we have been researching I have been reminded about how much I adore David Austen Roses. I love their intensity, tighly packed buds and gorgeous soft colours. But most of all I love how much they remind me of my dear mum.

Several years ago soon after my husband and I married we moved into a cottage on my parents acerage back in NSW. My mum a keen and beautiful gardener grows divine David Austen Roses and over the summertime I would walk between our two properties collecting these gorgeous flowers along the way. I would arrange them in pretty vases and give them to my gorgeous mother and lovely sisters... Such beautiful memories, how I miss those roses!
