Xenia | Alan | 4 eva

Possibly the most photogenic couple you will ever meet and their Mudbrick wedding did not disappoint. These kids are super stylish with the bride's Rue De Seine Gown and his slick tux from Megs Tailoring. She carried a bouquet of seasonal white and green summer flowers, bound with ivory ribbon.

The bridesmaids wore ivory with garlands of babys breath and roses in their hair.

Mudbrick doesn't need much dressing but we decked out the tables with florals in a classic palette of green and white; nestled amongst candles and place-settings styled by Two Foxes.

This classic wedding will go down as one of my all time faves x

All beautifully captured by the talented duo at Bubblerock.

Bridget and Nick

Being a creative, you're always longing for the day when you get a brief from a client who says, do whateeeeeever you like. Bridget was this bride and I absolutely love her for it.

We worked closely with the creative minds at Wildernest and One Lovely Day and our dream team of 7 florists over 4 days to to put together the jewel of the crown in our wedding season.

At the breathtaking Jonkers Farm, Bridget and Nick had a wedding of epic proportions...300 guests, lots of whiskey (to celebrate Bridget's Irish heritage) and a party that went through the night.

In the marquee we created 5 metre high gardens, cascading down the poles to our 'gardens' below. A whimsical floral arch was suspended above Bridget and Nick while they said their vows and a 7 metre long garland hung above them during the reception. Bridget's bouquets were created to look as thought they had been plucked from a meadow ~ cosmos, anenomes, achellia and flox to name just a few.

We worked alongside the talented guys at La Lumiere, Shupepe Tents, Eddison Project and Jo and Greg Jonker. The biggest shout out goes to the team of florists who worked all hours of the day (and night) to get it looking spectacular. I couldn't have done it without you x

Nat 4 Max

Planning a wedding from Poland can't be easy, but Natalie had a vision and along with her lovely mum, we helped bring it all together.

Natalie and Max were living in Europe while planning their wedding...but the joys of modern technology means it was NBD. Nat had a clear vision for her florals ~ a palette of pink and peach sorbet with bursts of raspberry to compliment the Miss Crabb bridesmaid dresses.

They chose Kauri Bay as their venue (why wouldn't you) where we framed that breathtaking view with wild and dreamy florals on their driftwood arch. Her aisle was lined with floral clusters which she strolled down, meeting Max at the end.

Nat and her maids carried bouquets of dahlias, garden roses, flox, scabiosa, delphiniums, berries and beech.

Inside, we dressed Kauri Bay's famous fireplace in a wild, cascading floral garden and had trailing green garlands along the trestle tables.

Faye's Urban Meadow

When flora takes over and a romantic woodland emerges at an industrial loft wedding, the result is nothing short of breathtaking. We created bouquets for Faye and her maids in a romantic palette of muted blush and creamy white. Her cascading meadow had hints of lilac, grey and buttery peach, enveloped in lush greenery. The inspiration behind this installation was a romantic, dream-like woodland, a world away from a bustling city. 
It was beautifully captured by Rachel Soh.

Caitlin and Cole on a wild Waiheke

With so many weddings each season, I look at the photos a month or two down the track and get blown away again. Seeing everything come together and seeing the brides and grooms look so happy, it's amazing. This makes it really tricky when trying to choose which photos to share on here. Now is one of those times. Danelle Bohane is such a talented photographer that I became fully immersed in these photos and struggled to narrow it down to just 20 or so. I managed it, just...

It was a blustery autumn day which made for beautiful wedding photos, not so great for a bride on her wedding day. Caitlin and the girls started the day at Te Whau Point. Hair, make up and nails were done by two of her close friends, the scene like something from an old world Hollywood movie; soft curls, plum lips, silk gowns and soft sunlight filtering through the curtains.

Although the weather added a drama and beauty to the surrounding, Caitlin's bride tribe was on hand to keep her veil in check. The ceremony and reception were held at the oh so beautiful Mudbrick, where Caitlin and Cole said their 'I do's'. After the formalities, photos of the couple were taken in the Waiheke wilderness, among olive groves, gravel roads and rolling fields.

The evening was filled with friends and family, delicious food, they ate, drank and danced the night away.

Jess and James ~ Autumn at Markovina

Where do I start with Jess and James?... We spent months chatting about their wedding, creating florals that perfectly suited them, the venue and their vision for the wedding. Months of planning and several months on and we still haven't met. They were (and still are) are living the London life, planning an Auckland wedding then when the day on May 27th finally arrived, I had the flu. Proper, full blown flu. Luckily, my wonderful assistant Izzy was there to take the reins and brought everything together.

Jess decided that a whimsical combination of garden roses, lots of lush greenery and a sprinkle of autumn wildflowers was what she wanted. She knew what she was doing, the florals perfectly complimented the venue, Markovina Estate, with their dreamy trailing indoor greenery.

Her Grace Loves Lace dress was the epitome of youthful romance, and Justin Aitken's photos captured this beautifully. 

 To Jess and James, my favourite pen pals x

Harriet & Michael

I know I say this about all of my brides but it's true, they are ALL lovely ladies (and gents) who I get on with as though we're old friends catching up for coffee. Harriet and Michael were no different. I met them after sending flowers to one of Harriet's colleagues; she loved them so much that she got in touch and we began planning her wedding florals.

They were married at Abbeville Estate with green garlands and draping florals adorning the venue, inside and out. The bridesmaids wore dove grey with delicate flower crowns to finish off the look.

Pre-wedding photos at an East Coast beach gave Harriet and Michael some time together before meeting their guests at Abbeville where they said their I-Do's and danced into the small hours.

All of it was beautifully captured by Chase Wild.

Shelby and Callum ~ Those crazy kids

Working with Shelby was like working with an old friend...we got along so well that it was almost too easy creating her perfect florals. It was a treat to have so much face time with Callum the groom and their fur baby Toby too.

After a couple of meetings we had everything sorted, the florals for their Allely Estate wedding were going to be in muted, almost ashen sorbet shades, wild and draping. 

The florals framing the bridal table had to be my favourite part, I couldn't have done it without my right hand gal Izzy.

Shelby and Callum, you guys are ace, I wish you all the happiness - give Toby a cuddle for me x

Jo and Geoff // colour pop wedding

Each wedding is different, special in its own way but this one was particularly bright, bold and fun.

I met with Jo and that's exactly what she wanted, all of the above. And we delivered of course.

Her bouquets were wild with pops of candy pink dahlias, roses, lisianthus, riceflower and eucalyptus, bound with silk ribbon. The groomsmen, simple yet bright with a single rose, gumnuts and eucalyptus, bound with ivory ribbon and the tables were just as bold as the bouquets. The stunner was the garland for the mantlepiece at Mantells, the bright flowers sitting pretty against the concrete backdrop.

~ Nicole and Sam ~

Nicole = Incredible.

When I met Nicole to chat about her wedding flowers, she knew exactly what she wanted ~ rich, deep shades of masala and plum with hints of raspberry, ivory and peach.

She wed Sam at Markovina on January 14th, 2017. The bridesmaids wore mis-matched, tonal dresses and Nicole, a backless lace dress from Rue de Seine.

The lads were dashing in navy which offset their burgundy buttonholes.

The January sun was shining (finally) and they were both cute as a button and so in love.

Such a genuinely sweet, kind and loving couple x

Mel and Steve, sitting in a tree...

Despite a drizzly morning on December 10th, 2016, Mel and Steve had a blast at their Matakana wedding. The sun peeked through just as the guests arrived.

Their rustic Matakana venue was the perfect spot for their relaxed, rustic wedding. We scattered clusters of posies around the venue and suspended floral hoops behind the bridal table.

The bouquets were in muted sorbet shades of peach, pink and cream with delicious texture and greenery sprouting through. 

To Mel and Steve, with love x

Becks and Ben's Kumeu Wedding

I had a blast helping Becks plan her wedding fleurs. She knew exactly what she wanted and I was so happy when we executed her floral vision with bouquets, buttonholes, garlands and table flowers.

The flowers were a mix of creamy white and peachy sorbet shades with hints of sage green. Scroll down for all the photos.
