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’ll state right up front I think the idea of non-matching bridesmaid dresses rocks…

I think this for a few different reasons;

Firstly; we women are all different shapes and sizes, all beautiful but different, and certain styles and shapes obviously suit certain body types better than others. So why force your girls to wear unflattering styles when then can wear a style that they look great in and feel great in. This can only serve make your overall look of your wedding better and more beautiful!

Secondly; It adds a point of interest. The various shapes, styles, colours, textures, fabrics and embellishments make for an interesting and visually exciting viewing experience for your audience. I like to think of the whole wedding as a piece of art, each aspect thoughtfully placed for the aesthetic pleasure of the viewer, from your colour palettes to your decorations to all the little details finer details. So I think the idea of thoughtfully chosen dresses within the range of your overall style, be it vintage or modern, cocktail or boho, serve to add a beautiful complexity that can be so eye catching and interesting.

Thirdly; I think its an opportunity to accentuate your colour palette. The most beautiful weddings are such because they had a thoughtful and skillful use of theme colours. These colours should run throughout your entire day, from the invitations, to the decorations, to the attire, to accessories, and into all the smaller details. This adds up to a cohesive, stylish, and sophisticated affair. Rather than selecting one monochromatic theme colour, I think a more beautiful option is a range of shades within one or two theme colours.
