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.
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.
Recently I was asked to put together a bouquet for one of our dear past brides, Michaela McBride (who is also an AMAZING calligrapher) for her anniversary shoot. The couple headed down to Lake Rotoiti to make some memories of their first wedding anniversary. I adore the moody shots, and I absolutely adore having my flowers photographed on film.
