Black Velvet Roses

How about these breathtaking Colombian Black Velvet Roses?! 

No filters needed for these beauties, my goodness! Different colours and tones in different lights, I'm in love!! 

Massive thanks to one of my amazing suppliers - Bloom Brokers - for getting me a bunch of these for this weekends wedding xx

Edison bulbs

Last night we set up our festoons at one of my favourite venues, The Winehouse. Here's a wee sneak peak photo of our lights with their stunning Edison bulbs. 

If you're looking for a venue you should most definitely check out The Winehouse!

Looking forward to sharing more photos of this beautiful set up xx

Thurlby magic

Our festoon lights were recently used for this stunning set up at my favourite venue in Queenstown - Thurlby Domain.

Misi + Almo

Misi and Almo chose to have a festival style wedding at Lake Hawea Holiday Park where they could celebrate all weekend with their friends and family. WOW, what a weekend full of love, feasting, laughter and partying!! You two really know how to throw an epic wedding!

I've known Misi and Almo a few years now from working on the local New Years festival Rhythm and Alps so it was really special to be able to help them create their dream wedding. 
Misi wanted deep burgundy florals with loads of foliage, textures and instead of bouquets, floral hoops! A huge wedding party meant loads of buttonholes and how good does everyone look?!

Lisa, one of Misi and Almo's dear friends, grew some flowers and foliage especially for their wedding, in particular the red amaranthus which we incorporated into all the floral hoops and buttonholes.

For anyone who hasn't been to Lake Hawea Holiday Park for a get away - you crazy person, get in touch with them and book a get away right now!! They have several types of accommodation options and it's ridiculously beautiful. GO! NOW! 

It was a huge couple days putting everything together and I'm very very grateful for my team of helpers Kate, Mike, Lisa and Ellie - couldn't have made it happen without you beauties!

Here's the photos by the beautiful and talented Lauren Constable - you shot the day perfectly and thank you for all the gorgeous shots of the flowers during set up! Can't wait to work with you again!!

Hanging Frames

If you're interested in hiring our frames and fake foliage drop us an email at info@bespokeweddingsandevents.co.nz or fill out our contact for here.

Flower crowns

Back home after a busy weekend in Auckland doing flowers for some friends for their beautiful wedding yesterday. It's such a treat being able to create florals for loved ones!

No sneak peak photos available yet but I am looking forward to sharing the images of the bouquets and buttonholes once they are ready!

I'm a fan of flower crowns and feel the need to wear one at weddings and this time I got to make a matching twinsie crown for one of my Soul Sisters. I was tempted to wear the crown on my flight home today too….!!! xx

Autumn foliage foraging and brass vases

We were very lucky to have my granddad and his partner visiting from the USA over Easter weekend and for the couple dinners at home over he weekend I foraged for some foliage to create some winter arrangements in my new brass vases. 

Absolutely loving the rich autumn tones with the contrast of the brass. Super excited to use these for some upcoming weddings with beautiful burgundy tones.

If you're interested in hiring the vases for your upcoming wedding or if you would like to discuss us doing your floral styling, drop is an email or fill out our enquiry form here .

On a side note I discovered the best Goats cheese at the Clyde food and wine festival, I'm now hooked on Raggedy Range cheeses, organic and from Central Otago, if you can find their cheese - buy some!
