Where to start with how much fun we had with Hayley and Carl? Being given a brief of just greenery is something we’ve never had before, and considering it’s now the Panetone 17 colour of the year it was rather fitting! The wedding took place at Ataahua garden venue, so the greenery brief certainly suited well to it’s surroundings at this time of year.
Ashley and Neil’s wedding took place at Poronui Station, a charming, wild setting on the outskirts of Taupo. Ashley and Neil’s wedding gave me the most incredible opportunity to forage from the wilderness that surrounds the area to accompany their muted florals. I absolutely loved how cohesive the flowers were with the venue, working with the environment and not taking the focus away from it.
Amanda and Cam’s beautiful farm wedding was one to remember. Amanda was clear with her vision and design details and what a result she got! Beautifully classic, Amanda looked stunning in her Juliette Hogan wedding dress and was accompanied by her beautiful bridesmaids in white. Her bouquets reflected much the same style, green and whites, simple yet elegant.
Zowie and Sean tied the knot on the hillside of Eagle Ridge. The floral ceremony arch was in perfect company with a picturesque backdrop of blue sky and green rolling hills, along with Zowie and Sean’s family and friends.
The wedding of Lucy and Tom at Old Forest School was a dreamy, loved filled summer day. Lucy was such an organised and relaxed bride from start to finish, wanting a wild and unstructured bouquet. Lucy wore a stunning Rue De Seine wedding dress, with a flower crown made up from greenery at the front and florals at the back. The bouquets were made up of fuchsia and peach colourings with trailing greenery to construct an asymmetrical appeal.
What a fun time the ladies from Urban Lounge Interiors & Despite Appearances had. When I was approached to see if I’d be interested in hosting a Christmas wreath workshop as their end of year Christmas party, I couldn’t say no. It was a perfect opportunity to try out something a little different and give the ladies creative freedom to steer away from the traditional Christmas wreath. Being interior designers themselves they were open and excited by an ‘out of the box’ brief!
Who can resist the beachside as your ceremony backdrop!? That is exactly what Maria and Grant had, and an amazingly lush and full ceremony arch to frame up the love birds. The colours Maria asked us to bring in were dreamy; golds, apricots, and a touch of dark beech leaves with moody pink quicksand roses to match in with her dress.
Ayla and Hayley’s day was one to remember. The day was spent with their closest friends and family and no shortage of meaningful detail. The ceremony took place down Blossom Lane in Ataahua and both their dogs joined in on the outdoor celebrations. Ayla and Hayley’s wedding day was a true reflection of their personalities, fun and relaxed.
Carly & Luke’s early January wedding was held within the wild spirited gardens of Old Forest School. This wedding was something a little different for On My Hand, playing with a more classic brief than usual and we loved doing something a little out of the ordinary for us. Carly was a gorgeous, relaxed bride and flexible with the type of flowers used. She put all her trust in us to make something stunning for their special day.
