I love working with couples with a great sense of style and taste. Claire and Stuart were exactly that. Claire had a great sense of colour and fashion and and right from the first consultation she gave me a beautiful palette to work with of ivories, creams, champagnes, soft mocha and coffees. Gorgeous!
With a beautiful mix of traditional and modern throughout the attire, venues and smaller details the long stemmed classic ivory rose bouquet was the perfect choice for Claire. This longer stemmed look is so elegant, and the more open roses lean towards a vintage look rather than if we had used tighter blooms.
The bridesmaid's were wearing very stylish champagne and black pencil line dresses, so to accentuate Claire's look and to tie in with the dress colouring we created small versions of Claire's bouquet in ivories, champagnes, mocha, and coffees.
Then of course Stuart wore an ivory rose with pale silver-green lambs ear leaf while the grooms men wore the champagne rose with lambs ear leaf. The ladies corsages had a mixture of the ivory, and soft mocha-pink roses with touches of lambs ear.
The ceremony was held at St Mathews in the City, a beautiful historic Church in the heart of Auckland CBD. We adorned the beautiful dark wooden pews with satin bows and champagne roses.
