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!…

When Kelly first comtacted me and I asked her about her wedding style and themes this is what she said:

“Our colour scheme is green and gold, I do really like baby’s breathe so I thought maybe some small white flowers with a bit of green and gold somehow… I don’t want extravagantly modern bouquets, but I am willing to think outside the square”

And this is what we came up with:

Posies of white freesia, lilacs, sweet pea, baby’s breath, spray roses, lambs ear, and geranium. Bound in antique gold satin and pinned with pearls.

Are they not the sweetest!

These were the buttonholes, white freesia, with lilac florets and fern detail. Bound in antique gold satin.

These were the corsages, white freesia, sweet pea, with touches of fern.

Congratulations Kelly and Aaron!

Christine and Andy tied the knot at the beautiful Kumeu Valley Estate last weekend and I was so rapt to be able to create something a bit special for them, beautiful fresh spring posies in that just-plucked-from-the-garden vintage style that I adore.

Christine wanted to stay away from the manicured rose look that is so traditionally bridal. She was drawn to the idea of garden daisies and having a theme colour of sage green we decided on these exquisite mixtures of freesia, daisy chrysanthemums, sweet peas, Lilly of the valley, spray roses, green viburnum snowballs, and lambs ear.

 

I love how this bouquet looked different depending on which way you viewed it. One side choc full of daises, another full of foliage and snowballs, and another again with beautiful spray roses and sweet pea.

 

I always encourage my brides to incorporate something personal into their bouquet bindings, Christine chose her Grandmother’s beautiful antique lace handkerchief, which we fastened with pearls. I thought this worked so perfectly with the whole look.

 

The Bridesmaid’s and flower girls posies were smaller versions of the bridal bouquet and bound in ivory satin.

 

The ladies corsages were clusters of freesia and spray roses and the gent’s buttonholes were simple freesia florets.

 

I adore these close ups of the little details, the curly sprigs of the sweet pea, and the dainty bells of the lily of the valley. The scent of of these bouquets, as you can imagine, was phenomenal, between the sweet pea, freesia, and lily of the valley it was sensational.
