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!

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!

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!…
