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.
Annelies and Tim’s brief was ‘relaxed and beautiful’, which, as we’re sure you know by now, aligns perfectly with On My Hand’s signature style. Using a palette of peach, orange and pink, grounded against dusky greens to complement the bridesmaids’ dresses, we combined a mixture of fresh and dried florals to create bouquets, boutonnieres and centrepieces.
The pair were married at Ataahua in May, so to achieve the relaxed and beautiful look this lovely couple wanted, we used limonium, baby’s breath (also known as gypsophila), along with peach, white and dusty pink roses, which we balanced with ornamental grasses and wildflowers to give a super-romantic, natural feeling.
When it came to creating a piece for the fireplace at the ceremony, we opted for an off-centre piece, and added chrysanthemums to the floral varieties we’d used in the bouquets and boutonnieres. For the tables we stuck to the same colour palette with grasses to add height, arranged in round concrete vases. We were thrilled with how beautifully they complemented the rust napkins in the settings.
While we loved a lot about this wedding, one of our favourite parts was blending dried and fresh florals. This not only creates gorgeous texture, but also means our couples can easily save their florals as a lovely memento of their day.
