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.

Here are our studio pictures of Lili and Cero’s wedding blooms.

I loved the look of the soft ruffly green geranium foliage cuff on Lili’s Bouquet. The pink roses, called sweet akito were so perfectly shaped. The whole bouquet smelt amazing between the sweet citrusy geranium foliage and the roses. Yummy!

The bridesmaid’s bouquets included more roses, geranium and also freesia – only adding to the amazing scent. They were a pleasure to create!

Corsages  to compliment the bouquets with all the above blooms plus grass loop detail.

The whole wedding was pink, pink and more pink! From the dresses to the flowers to all the little details. Lili was a very girly girl and so lovely consult with. She looked gorgeous on the day as you can see in the below photos from Shine Studio.
