Sam & Charlie
Photography by Ethan Lowry
Sam was the ideal bride! She was so relaxed and she gave us total creative freedom with the only hard and fast rule being that she wanted toe toe to feature. She preferred a natural, organic look with greens and earthy tones with the addition of white flowers.We decided to go with some dried elements for everything to have a relaxed, natural vibe, much like Sam and Charlie themselves! From her dried flower crown to her wild, textured and neutral colour palette bouquet, Sam was every bit the bohemian bride she wanted to be. Waterfall farm wedding venue was the perfect backdrop for Sam and Charlie, and the venue held both the ceremony and the reception. The ceremony was held in the late afternoon in a forest clearing where the arch and pews were in place. Sam wanted the arch arrangements to look like they had always been there, to be as natural looking as possible, and not look out of place. We think we managed that and were quite proud of the end result! The reception took place as the sun set and was the perfect end to a beautiful day.

Brenna’s and Kieran’s wedding florals were simple but elegant. Set at the beautiful Hunting Lodge winery, the chic arrangements added sophistication to the bucolic surroundings. Blush and burgundy flowers accented with succulents tied together the venue, arch, cake and bouquets. With blush being Brenna’s theme colour, the majority of the flowers were in this colour, with pops of burgundy roses. The tables had candles and small bottles of roses in the same colours to make room for large family style sharing platters. Gold wreaths with vine foliage, seed lights and complementary flowers made up the back drop for the bridal table. To keep with her theme, Brenna wanted soft and feminine flowers, a combination of roses and lisianthus, with limonium and eucalyptus for texture and as Brenna loves succulents these were added as a personal touch to her bridal bouquet, bridal table arrangement and cake. As with any wedding, the aim was to work with what the bride and groom wanted, to create the perfect atmosphere for their big day, along with memories and photos that will last a lifetime.
Jo & Jos

As soon as we met Jo we knew we were all on the same “page”. Jo wanted her wedding to have almost all dried flowers and foliage with the exception of some fresh roses -white and quicksand (a beautiful subtle blush) in her bridal bouquet only. We were very excited by this as we knew it could be really beautiful as well as a more sustainable option and better for the environment. Jo and Jos got married on private property with stunning views to Rangitoto. We used all natural, neutral, earthy tones with a few gold accents to match the champagne gold thread running through Jo’s gorgeous Brook Tyson Ritual gown. The guests sat on hay bales to watch the ceremony! There was so much love and family surrounding them, it was truly a special and unique wedding.
