Anna and Edmundo's Abbeville Estate Wedding

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 aesthetic 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 beautiful vases and props are supplied by

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!

  1. My wedding took place at one of iconic local venues where decorations were truly awesome. Floral delivery was done by a reputed Same Day Flower Delivery NYC provider and they arranged everything with fresh flowers. Was very happy with their work.
