Word press just wasn’t cutting the mustard so I’ve moved the whole blog to http://blossomweddings.blogspot.com/

Please come check it out.. see you there🙂

 

Kate and Damien married earlier this month with a very stylish black and white theme throughout the wedding.

I love that Kate wanted something a bit different and I think her bouquet was a totally avant-garde and stunning.

We created it with with all white standard carnations, and bound the bouquet in black satin with the satin ruffle detailing fastened to the front of the bouquet.

Its very runway don’t you think!?

 

The bridesmaids wore wrist corsages instead of carrying bouquets. We carried through the black and white with white orchids with black grass loops on black satin wrist bands. The Mothers had pin on corsages with clusters of white orchids and grass loops.

 

The guys had white calla lilies bound in black satin and the Groom and Groomsman’s were detailed with black grass loops to make theirs more special.

 

This wedding works so with all the different varieties because the palette was respected. We were true to the black and white theme throughout and it all looks so good together!

I am looking forward to seeing their professional shots to see how it all looked together on the day…. (Kate *hint hint hint*)

I am so rapt to be able to show you the photos from a wedding we did in December for our wonderful clients Jane and Luke.

When Jane contacted me to initially inquire into the possibility of Bells of Ireland posies for her bridesmaids I knew exactly what her vision was. Turns out we had both been eying up the very same wedding photos where they had used this concept exquisitely. I love it when this happens. We were on the exact same page regarding the ideal combination of glamour, prettiness and sophistication to be incorporated into Jane and Luke’s wedding flowers.

Without further ado I present to you Jane and Luke’s Wedding….

Isn’t this shot just spectacular. The lighting is breathtaking and Jane is such a beautiful bride. This along with all the wonderful photos of Jane and Luke’s special day were captured by Brett Lee from Unique Visions

For Jane we created this beautiful baby’s breath posy. It is absolutely perfect with her gown which is modern with a play on vintage.

In this photo you can see the vintage brooch we attached to the handle of Jane’s bouquet.

Here are the bridesmaids with their clusters of green bells of Ireland, bound in black satin.

Jane and Luke married as Cassels in the Waitakere ranges. This venue is gorgeous with a subtle Mediterranean feel throughout the decor.

These shots are so lovely. Jane and Luke look so happy and beautifully coordinated with their attire and with the baby’s breath bouquet and buttonhole.

The cake was dressed with a cluster of the Bells of Ireland florets atop. It is so stylish with the diamante brooch detail.

These shots of Jane and Luke with the west coast backdrop are so magic. Absolutely beautiful work from their photographer Brett Lee.

A HUGE Thank you to Jane and Luke for sharing their beautiful wedding with us and for being such a pleasure to work with during the planning process for their big day.

Congratulations to you both!

Bang for your Buck

My personal philosophy is that every bride can have stunning florals without breaking the bank. I understand the financial pressure we are all under these days and I know how hard it can be for young couples to have the wedding they’ve dreamed of when they’re also paying the bills and saving for their futures.

I don’t believe stylish flowers should cost the earth so when a client asks me what flowers are both beautiful and cost effective for their summer wedding one of the first options I suggest is hydrangea . This bloom has made a big come back in the last few years, now not considered the nanna’s flower it once was, but instead a chic and stylish bloom used frequently in weddings because of its soft bridal appearance and affordability.

The colours Hydrangea comes in are varied from whites, to pinks, to blues and purples, to beautiful mottled antique mixes.

These simple yet elegant arrangements start from as little as $50.00. Aren’t they fabulous!

All boxed up and ready to go…

…And we’re back.

Happy new year everyone! I trust you all had excellent holiday breaks and are now feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

We had a much needed break and are now full swing into the 2011 wedding season with 8 weddings in 2 weeks! It is so fantastically hectic and we have had some stunners (photos to come!).

For now I have the pleasure of bringing to you some stunning photos from our bride Miriam’s December wedding. I was so thrilled to get these photos along with a lovely email from Miriam saying how happy she was with the flowers (it completely made my day!). Miriam was such a lovely client to deal with, she had beautiful taste and was open to ideas about how to give her the most beautiful arrangements for her special day. Funnily enough and what so often happens, she came to the consult with one concept in mind and then left having fallen in love with a completely different one… the perfect one!

Here they are, arent they beautiful!…

Lacy Lisianthus

Yay!! Lisianthus is back in season, how I’ve missed it. Its such a pretty alternative to a rose and a nice substitute for Peonies for the 9 months of the year that they aren’t around.

They come in beautiful shades, whites, creams, greens, lilacs, purples, and pinks and they last beautifully.

The first cream/white ones of the season found their way into these lovely arrangements for one of our December Brides. The bouquets feature lisianthus buds and blooms, with soft dusky pink “something special” roses, and cream “vendela” roses, bound in ivory satin.

 

The buttonhole’s feature soft dusky pink “something special” roses, with lisianthus buds and ruscus foliage, bound in ivory satin.

When Kelly first comtacted me and I asked her about her wedding style and themes this is what she said:

“Our colour scheme is green and gold, I do really like baby’s breathe so I thought maybe some small white flowers with a bit of green and gold somehow… I don’t want extravagantly modern bouquets, but I am willing to think outside the square”

And this is what we came up with:

Posies of white freesia, lilacs, sweet pea, baby’s breath, spray roses, lambs ear, and geranium. Bound in antique gold satin and pinned with pearls.

Are they not the sweetest!

These were the buttonholes, white freesia, with lilac florets and fern detail. Bound in antique gold satin.

These were the corsages, white freesia, sweet pea, with touches of fern.

Congratulations Kelly and Aaron!
