We took part in a beautifully moody and mysterious styled shoot set inside the Waihi gold mine pumphouse ruin, its towering archaic structure creating a dark sanctuary from the elements. Full of spring florals like sweet pea, flowering manuka and snowball vibernum we had a blast with the wild hearts team.
If you’re looking for maximum impact with your wedding florals, we absolutely love floral archways. They serve double duty – creating a beautiful feature during your ceremony, as well as an incredible backdrop for family and group photos. And who doesn’t want all their photos to have jaw-dropping florals in them?! That’s why you came to us, after all!
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!).
Despite living in Dubai, Pip and Stephen rocked their garden wedding held here in Tauranga, New Zealand! Aligning some of the finest of Tauranga vendors – Ataahua garden venue, Rambo Estrada photographic, Spongedrop and Devour catering. The date was bang on Christmas and the end of our working year, spirits were high and everyone was feeling festive.
It was such a pleasure being part of this incredible winter wedding at Ataahua Garden Venue. Rachel and Lance were a breeze to deal with, and their aesthetic was spot on for the season, having a beautiful, natural branch dotted with orchids as their bridal table backdrop. This was in good company with their stunning branch arch!
It’s been a while since I’ve been in Hong Kong, the last time I traveled here was 13 years ago and it was my first time in China. My mother lived in Shenhzen teaching English in a primary school, knew the spots and showed us around over a week. I’ve got fond memories of visiting Lantau Island, eating dumplings for the first time and learning the MTR.
