On a beautiful March day Todd and Karyn tied the knot at St Mathews in the city, following on to celebrate with friends and family at Mantells on the Water.
Karyn wanted a fresh summery look that complimented her soft colour palette. We chose blush pink 'Keira' and ivory 'Patience' David Austin roses, and standard and spray roses in soft ivories and pale pinks, ivory freesia, and lisianthus, interspersed with fresh and sweetly scented geranium foliage.
Abbeville Estate is Auckland's newest wedding venue and easily makes it into my top 5 favourite venues to host a wedding. Nestled in picturesque farmland near the Auckland airport, Abbeville is a beautiful blend of quaint historic buildings with a professional modern approach to planning wedding's and events.
Our lovely client's Anna and Edmundo were excited to embrace the vintage asthetic of Abbeville for their special day and loved the idea of soft neutral tones with a relaxed whimsical feel for their flowers.
These amazing images were shot by Sutherland Kovach whose work is second to none. I love the light fresh and natural tone in their photographic style, which feels very authentic and without pretense, but at the same time flawless and refined.
Anna carried a posy of blooms in ivories and creams, including David Austin roses, lisianthus, freesia, queen anne's lace, dahlia and veronica, interspersed with geranium. She wanted a relaxed and un-manicured look with textural touches of wispy leaves and buds.
Edmundo and his Groomsman wore buttonholes with small starlight cream spray roses and ivy leaf.
The ladies corsages were clusters of spray roses, freesia, lisianthus, veronica and sweet william.
I particularly loved creating the ladies corsages which were like mini posies unto themselves with gorgeous texture and colour.
The chapel at Abbeville is over 150 years old and is so pretty with its stained glass windows and white wash interior. The freshly picked and natural look of the flowers worked perfectly to compliment and not overtake the ceremony space.
We adorned the chapel pews with miniature jars with small
posies if roses, lisianthus, queen annes lace and foliage. The large
pedestal arrangements included hydrangea, dahlia, veronica, roses, and
lisianthus with ivy and angelica leaf.
What an absolutely gorgeous couple and a beautiful shot of their nuptials by Sutherland Kovach.
Isn't the light from the stained glass window amazing.
The reception is just a short stroll from the chapel and is another
gorgeous light building that is laid out beautifully with crispy white
cloths and ghost chairs. On each table we placed a white ceramic urn
filled with freesia, lisianthus, roses, dahlias, queen annes lace, sweet william, and
veronica in ivories and creams, with foliage interspersed.
Again, I loved creatin these arrangements with the textural touches interspersed, almost like a little tousled garden of wild flowers in each vase.
The head table was adorned with runner of mini posies and vases ready and waiting to hold the bridal and bridesmaid's bouquets.
Huge congratulations to Anna and Edmundo on their beautiful wedding. It was a absolute pleasure to be a part of!
