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!

Here are the buttonholes, corsages and flower girl petal basket:
