NZ Flowers Week - celebrating NZ grown flowers

This year we jumped at the chance to get involved with a floral project alongside some talented (and slightly bonkers) florists from around NZ.

We had to create 3 different designs that represented our Past, Present and Future in Floristry.
Keep scrolling to see what I created and the inspiration behind each one...

A whimsical blossom cloud represents the dream I had of leaving my day job and becoming a florist. My business name ‘Rose Tinted’ came about because I see the world through a rose tinted lens, everything is erring on the side of positive. I took that positive energy, taking my dream and making it into a floral reality.

Contemporary chaos.
I’m forever coming up with different ideas, juggling lots of jobs and responsibilities all the while trying to keep on top of everything. My days are full, varied and never predictable. This floral represents the different directions my brain and body are constantly moving in, while trying not to topple over. 

There are several storylines in my floral future. The one you can’t see is the sustainability; instead of using floral foam, I used sphagnum moss in the small floral 'gardens' and the large structure was created using dried flora and wire instead of foam or plastic. It’s really important for me to be challenged creatively by the shifts in our environmental conscience and embrace the change which benefits the world we live in. 

Overall the design embodies what has grown from a thought to a fully functioning, self sustaining business and I couldn't be more grateful to the people who helped me get there. Within the setting there are smaller gardens, springing fourth, representing the continued growth of the business and the next stage of my career which will hopefully continue to inspire me and those around me.

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

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.

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

Rose Tinted Flowers x Simple Skincare

On May 17th, Simple Skincare launched a beautiful new range of gentle on skin products at the Sapphire Room in Ponsonby.

We created a lush green and white retreat where guests enjoyed a morning yoga session, a mouth watering spread from Bird on a Wire, accompanied by green smoothies and of course got to try the new Simple products.

Rose Tinted Flowers x Mini

Hidden in plain sight over the road from the Auckland Port is the Quay Project. After climbing the stairs to the 1st floor, it opens up to an expanse of hardwood floors, exposed beams and distressed paintwork making it the perfect blank canvas for a range of events, big and small.

We were invited to create an ethereal botanical installation in the space for an evening knees up for the peeps at Mini cars.

Hanging festoon lighting was nestled amongst trailing jasmine and ivy and on the trestles we designed botanical table runners of moss and succulents, framed with driftwood.

If you need floral styling for an event, big or small, email Rosie on rosie@rosetintedflowers.com and we'll help create something unique and beautiful.
