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
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.
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!).
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.
