Bridgid and Mark

Remember those blustery days in early January? Bridgid and Mark had to fight those elements on their wedding day but it didn't manage to dampen their spirits.

Less than a week into the new year and the wild was howling and the rain was coming in sideways but Bridgid, being the darling that she was, still had a huge smile across her face. We delivered her bouquets first, she came bounding to the door, full of excited energy and her eyes lit up (best authentic response ever). All wildflowers, dahlias and pops of bright against tones of treacle, butter and sand.

From there, we set up her florals at Orakei Bay...lush, trailing garlands, wild archways and petite vases of flowers dotted around the venue.

There were momentary gaps in the rain which made for beautiful outdoor photos, a moody sky against the brightest of smiles.

Bridgid and Mark, you were such a treat to work with, you let us unleash our creativity and make something amazing...we wish you both all the happiness in the world xxx

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.

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.

* Fabia and Ryan *

I only met Fabia and Ryan a few weeks before her and Ryan's wedding. We did the majority of the floral planning via email (all the Pintrest boards) and the odd Skype chat. Everything came together, Fabia's vision of a soft, romantic colour palette with accents of raspberry and burgundy was floral heaven. 

Her gals were in matching dusty pink floor length dresses, their bouquets finished with trimmings from Fabia's gown. 

Their summer wedding took place in West Auckland, before the ceremony, she came face to face with Ryan in his navy tux and slick pink tie (we love) for some time together before walking down their aisle at the Tasting Shed.

Their venue was adorned with garlands, flowers and clusters of succulents and it was all captured by our friend Libby Robinson Photography
