Every now and then we work in a venue that is so naturally full of charm that we deliberately design florals around it. Black Barn, next to Lake Tarawera, is one such venue. We didn’t want to compete with beautiful native bush around there, so for Charlotte and Andrew’s Spring wedding we deliberately pulled in the natural elements and colours we were surrounded by. We matched their florals to the setting (one of our all-time favourite things to do).
Abbey and Ash’s wedding was a foliage lovers dream and we’re really, really proud of it. We worked with Claire from One Lovely Day in Auckland, who did the styling and worked with Abbey to create the brief. They wanted super-simple, white and green florals. We used hydrangeas and lisianthus and tons of foliage. We were really lucky to be able to use foliage from Abbey’s parents’ house, where the wedding was held, alongside foliage from local growers. It was a hot, muggy time of year which meant we adapted the bouquets on the day to allow for climate (it was super-stormy and muggy!).
