#FridayFlorals: Real Wedding Florals

For today's #FridayFlorals post, we thought we'd share some images from a wedding we did earlier this year for Lauren and Bart. We designed the ceremony arch which was created in conjunction with Blush Floral Stylists and La Lumiere (draping). 

This wedding was a full service wedding including all styling, planning and day of coordination - our favourite package. We love full service weddings because we really get to be a part of the journey, keeping the brides from becoming too embroiled in the unimportant details or family squabbles over seating and really just watch them enjoy the process and relax and really immerse themselves in their big day. 

For this wedding, the flowers were done by Blush Floral Stylists who imported all the Colombian roses which really stole the show in the arrangements!

Harlow Garland's specialty florals department, HGBlooms is able to bring your floral vision to life! Whether it's a simple bouquet arrangement or the full floral styling of your wedding, we'd love to discuss your vision and how we can make it a reality. Contact us today.

Wonderful news this morning after receiving word from one of our clients, former Miss Universe NZ, Ria van Dyke (now van Solley) that her wedding (which we planned and styled) has been featured on The Lane!! 

Such a beautiful feature and we are so humbled by the lovely words Ria had to say about us: 

 I worked alongside Rhonda, my wedding planner, to create my dream wedding. From her endless support, to her elegant style of decorating and careful consideration to detail, she made me feel so at ease."

Thank you so much again Ria and Andrew, for allowing us to be a part of your magical day. xx
