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!

Here is one of my colour combo favourites from this season….

Michele and Jason got married at the Wharf, the beautiful venue on Auckland harbourside this month. We created these arrangements of pink and red peonies, roses and calla lilies to compliment the beautiful cherry red dresses worn by the bridesmaids. I cant wait to see the shots of the girls with the flowers!

Here is Michele’s bouquet, in which we used a several different tones from very pale pinks, to brighter pinks, to deep reds.

For the bridesmaids we subtracted the paler pink shade and went with the rich tones of mid pinks and deep reds, bound in a cherry red to match their dresses.

The ladies wore corsages of all the mixed shades and the gents wore deep red roses.

The Wharf is such a cool venue. It is very chic with its attention to detail from the ginormous chandelier on the ceiling to the layout of tables around the cylinder shaped room.

The views are what its all about though as the full glass walls give you a stunning outlook over Auckland City from the North Shore side, including the Harbour and the bridge.

The floating rose bowls worked beautifully to encapsulate the meeting of the natural landscape of water and bush and the modern city views.

Congratulations Michele and Jason!
