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!

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!

I am so excited and honored to be able to show you the beautiful photos from my lovely client’s Amber and Hamish’s wedding last month.

Amber was such a beautiful bride and how stunning is her gown with the delicate lace detailing. The bridesmaid’s dresses are very chic too and all the little elements from the dresses, to the shoes, to the flowers, to the venue were the perfect collaboration of vintage and chic.

I adore the pallette of white, black and grey/silver, this looks magic together and has been captured so exquisitely by their talented photographer Carolyn Haslett.

They were such a lovely couple to work with, I am so pleased for them that they now have these beautiful photos of their happy day to treasure.

When Amber and Hamish came for their first consultation and we discussed the shabby chic cut crystal vase idea I showed them a picture I had just been eying up in the latest wedding Magazine and was pleased to find that Amber had been eying up the same one! So we knew straight away we were on the same page with the look of everything.

Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous photos with us Amber and Hamish. Congratulations to you both and may you have long and happy lives together!

I love working with couples with a great sense of style and taste. Claire and Stuart were exactly that. Claire had a great sense of colour and fashion and and right from the first consultation she gave me a beautiful palette to work with of ivories, creams, champagnes, soft mocha and coffees.  Gorgeous!

With a beautiful mix of traditional and modern throughout the attire, venues and smaller details the long stemmed classic ivory rose bouquet was the perfect choice for Claire.  This longer stemmed look is so elegant, and the more open roses lean towards a vintage look rather than if we had used tighter blooms.

The bridesmaid’s were wearing very stylish champagne and black pencil line dresses, so to accentuate Claire’s look and to tie in with the dress colouring we created small versions of Claire’s bouquet in ivories, champagnes, mocha, and coffees.

Then of course Stuart wore an ivory rose with pale silver-green lambs ear leaf while the grooms men wore the champagne rose with lambs ear leaf. The ladies corsages had a mixture of the ivory, and soft mocha-pink roses with touches of lambs ear.

The ceremony was held at St Mathews in the City, a beautiful historic Church in the heart of Auckland CBD. We adorned the beautiful dark wooden pews with satin bows and champagne roses.
