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*)

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!

So the vintage wedding trend has been in for a long while and it seems to be getting more and more beautiful I am so enjoying the return to natural feminine details and the break away from really heavily manicured florals.

The 1920’s look is particularly beautiful, seen in bouquets that look freshly plucked from the garden, dresses with less poof and more drape, and some of the most stunning hair accessories for brides and maids, that nod to the flapper headbands of the roaring 20’s.

These are some of my favourites that have me drooling…
