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.

I see a lot of wedding photos and some far out shine others. There is something magical about the use of lighting and shadow, angles, silhouettes, blurring, and close ups that makes certain wedding photos take your breath away.

These photos of our recent wedding for Lili and Cero in Cornwall Park, Auckland are the perfect example. Shot by award winning Blair Quax of Shine Studios, these photos are dreamy.

The shots among the blossoms and the beautiful sepia tones are stunning.

I’m so pleased for Lili and Cero, they were SUCH a nice couple and deserved to have these amazing memories of their special day.

Welcome to Emily’s Blossoms.

The first ever blog for Blossom Wedding Flowers, BUT not specifically Blossom Wedding Flowers. Upon these here blog pages shall appear all things wedding, style, floral, art and fashion related to name a few areas of interest.

I hope this blog will be a source of inspiration and a way to communicate with both my clients and all those hoping to catch a peek at something beautiful for a little while.

To kick things off we have some pics from a wedding we did earlier this month for the lovely Amber and Hamish. They were a pleasure to work with as I always appreciate clients with a great sense of style and a willingness to step outside the box for their wedding day.

We created full posies of Gypsophilla (Baby’s Breath), a bloom that is tragically desecrated every Mothers and Valentines day in tacky bouquets of roses and carnations but has been revamped in these simple and stylish wedding florals that are perfect for chic vintage weddings.

I can’t wait to see the pro shots as they are always a million times better than my own but here are the ones taken at our studio before the wedding and at the venue set up.
