When Annelies and Tim first approached On My Hand, Annelies mentioned that she was really passionate about flowers, this was due to her Dutch heritage and flowers being a big thing in her home when she was a child. So we knew whatever we created for their wedding had to honour (and add to) the significant place flowers had held in her life thus far.Read More
Why have just one party, when you can have two? That is exactly what Nicole and Billy chose to do when they got married at a private property in Matarangi in March . They had such a clear vision of what they wanted and we were absolutely thrilled to be part of bringing it to life.
At On My Hand, we really do believe that Mother Nature is the greatest artist, which is why we work to emulate her work in all we do. So when we get a “rustic elegance” brief, for a wedding at the bride’s parents’ farm in the Kaimai Range, our hearts sing with possibilities!Read More
When Allie and Dave got married at Ataahua and gave us a brief of “french elegant and feminine” we were thrilled. We created a palette of greys, greens, whites and blues, using roses, lagurus ovatus, hydrangeas, tweedia, olive, rosemary, flowering thyme, eucalyptus, tarragon. While we could say more, I think we’re better to just let Allie tell you what she thought in her own words.Read More
Katy and Mike got married at Black Barn Tuahiwi, in Lake Tarawera. Katy’s brief was ‘pretty pastels but with a pop of dark colour’ so we chose a beautiful deep burgundy to really highlight the softer pastel tones.Read More
It’s getting to that reflective time of year, so we thought we’d share some of our highlights of 2018. It’s been a big year for On My Hand, with lots of opportunities to push ourselves, grow and create lots of beautiful work at the same time.
Camille and Malone were an incredible couple with incredible taste. Their brief was to create florals that were wild and unkempt but linked to the setting for their nuptials – Poronui Station, which is a hunting and fishing lodge 40 mins from Taupō, on SH5. Bearing in mind that it was a beautifully desolate forest setting, we used a base of kanuka and eucalyptus.
