Wedding at the Dome

Our second event at Auckland Museums Dome, but our first wedding there.
The Dome being such a big space meant it could handle having large arrangements hanging from the ceiling.
With the 14 flower balls suspended from the ceiling above the tables the room looked absolutely stunning, then when the sun had set, all the flowers reflected off the windows and it looked even more incredible.

The brides posie had silvertree, freesias, white spray roses and echium

Autumn Wedding

This wasn't your average everday wedding. It was very autumny themed - we used feathers and twigs and all sorts of nice warm colours.

The brides bouquet

The fireplace garland

The table centres were cute little nests of pine cones, feathers and lichen, surrounding clusters of chocolatey coloured cone candles.

In the back ground, our large black urn filled with red pineapples, birch, copper beech, grapevine and little baby granny smiths.

Wedding at Pontoon

The couple were down here from England to get married and were quite keen to have something different to the usual white wedding flowers. The flowers had a very tropical theme and were quite fun - we used red pineapple, red singapore orchids, a variety of interesting tropical leaves and woven flax flowers.

Sweet Louise Function in the Dome

This was our first function up in the dome at Auckland War Memorial Museum.
Gerberas hung at the windows on the outer edge, drew your eyes to the amazing 360 degree view of Auckland City.
The Gerbera chandelier suspended above the dance floor, meant standing for hours hanging flowers upside-down, but the end result was well worth the aching arms.
