Wedding Flowers + Styling

Enquiry Process​

Thanks so much for getting in touch and congratulations on your engagement! We are so excited to be a part of your journey and would love to put together a design and a quote for your special day. ​

Wedding Enquiry Form

The first step is to gather all the necessary details about your day so we can provide a tailored design and quote that meets your specific needs and preferences. Our preferred method is to have you fill out our wedding enquiry form although we can also have a chat over the phone or via video call.

Initial Design + Quote

After reviewing the details you provide, we will create a unique design and quote that meets your specific needs. We offer a range of options that can include not only flowers, but also additional décor items or full styling services such as linens, lighting, stationary, and other décor elements. This initial design may reflect your vision, your budget and include our suggestions.

Video Consultation

The next step is to book in a time for an online video call, here we will chat through the design, discuss how to get the best from your budget and make notes on what changes we might need to make to better fit what you are looking for.

Your Design + Quote

After the call we send the Design + Quote as a PDF along with any changes we discussed. From here you can look over the design in more detail, discuss with your fiance and let us know of any further changes you would like or suggestions you would like to be given.

I cannot recommend Becks enough! She was amazing to communicate with throughout the whole process and I felt that she had truly listened to how we wanted the venue to look on the day. We had so many complements on the flowers and all the extra little details she added were perfect. On the wedding day I had total trust in her to set it up beautifully and there were no complaints from me....it was stunning!!!! Thank you SO much!

Design + Quote

We understand that sometimes you may want to make adjustments to the total spend or the style of the design we provide. In such cases, we work closely with you to refine the design and quote until it meets your specific preferences and requirements. This process can take place via email or we can arrange a consultation to discuss all the details in person. Our goal is to ensure that the final design and quote are just perfect for you!

Booking

Should you decide to book our services, you do not have to confirm every detail immediately although most of our clients do. We secure your wedding date with a deposit and a signed contract, we are so excited that you have trusted us with your special day. After your booking and confirmation of order you may not hear from us for some time, depending on how far in advance you book in. During this time we are working in the background to ready your order.

Confirmation

Once you are happy with the design and quote we go ahead and secure the hire of any styling elements for your wedding, we will book those in on a first-come, first-served basis. Afterward, we will work diligently behind the scenes to finalise your floral arrangements. This includes calculating the exact number of stems needed for each type of arrangement in order to create the desired look for your special day.

3-5 Months Before

At around the 3-5 month mark, we will pre-order as much as we can from our trusted growers. Some varieties get booked out months in advance so we want to make sure we don't miss out and that we are getting the best product possible for you. During this time, we will reach out to you first to confirm the quantities. It is always a great feeling for us to have the flowers ordered and secured for your special day.

1-2 Months Before

We usually confirm the stationery designs 2 months prior and place the order for them 1 month prior to your event so if you have ordered any of these items from us, this is when we ask you for that info. Additionally, we need to update the quantities for any hired items, such as cutlery or napkins, at this time. Roughly a month before the event, we send the final invoice, which is due 14 days before your day.

The Week Of

During the week of your wedding, we gather the product we will be using for your event, typically from multiple suppliers. This is also the time when we have the opportunity to explore any additional flowers or foliage that might complement your chosen style. We dedicate a significant amount of time to processing and caring for these stems to ensure they are at their absolute best on your special day.

The Day Before

On the day prior to your wedding, we work diligently to assemble all the floral arrangements we can. This day is dedicated to you, we are putting together items like centerpieces and bouquets as well as preparing for the wedding day and loading up any styling items. We are also checking the weather to see if we need to make any changes to accomodate a location change due to weather. This is a usually a very long day!

The Day Of

On the day of your wedding, we’re up early to put finishing touches on arrangements, before loading them into the van and delivering your bouquets. We then set up for the ceremony and reception, and in some cases, we may do more flower arranging on site for items such as hanging installations and arches. It’s a busy and exciting day for us! By the time you are having your ceremony, we are back sweeping up all the stems on the workshop floor.

The Following Day

The next morning we head back to your venue and pick up all the styling or hire items so you don't have to worry about returning those. We also grab any vases or structural elements we have used for your design . We take whatever flowers you have left behind and compost them, however if you are returning the next day we can put aside any florals you are wanting to collect. A couple of hours of cleaning later, we are finished and onto the next lovely wedding.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are based in North-West Auckland, most of our weddings are Auckland-based however we do travel anywhere in New Zealand.

We often have couples reserving their wedding dates as early as 2 years in advance, with the majority booking about 1 year prior. However, we do accommodate last-minute bookings as well. We highly recommend that you secure your wedding date with us at least 8-12 months in advance and finalize your design and order 6 months prior to ensure that we can provide you with the best products for your special day.

There is a very large variation on client spends. For the average sized wedding a budget of $4000-6000 is sufficient for some lovely florals for your day, less than usually means some sacrifices and more might include some larger installations or statement pieces.

As the florals are all ordered or collected when this happens we can either redistribute those stems into other arrangements or create an arrangement for somewhere else in the venue that may have been missed such as a gift table or the bar.

If you require additional floral arrangements for your wedding, we will do our best to accommodate your request. The ideal time to discuss this would be during the pre-order stage, which typically occurs 3-5 months prior to your wedding day. During this time, we determine the exact number of stems required to create all of your arrangements. However, we understand that last-minute additions may be necessary, such as an extra centerpiece or buttonhole for a parent. Please do not hesitate to ask, and we will make every effort to accomodate to your needs.

To secure your booking with us, you do not have to confirm all of the details in your order. However, we do require a commitment to the same spending range (or within 5% of the total) at the time of booking. This is because we use this information to calculate the necessary hours needed to complete your job the week of your wedding, and we may have to turn away other bookings based on those hours. If the order is significantly reduced at a later date, we may miss out on the opportunity to take on another event during that week.

Certainly, we are usually able to set up items for you on your wedding day. We charge for set-up time based on the amount of work required to ensure that everything is properly arranged and in place for your special day.

After your event, all of the flowers are yours to keep, with the exception of any dried or preserved stems that were hired for use in your arrangements, as well as any vessels that we provided on a loan or rental basis. You are welcome to remove any flowers that are in vases, and we can inform you which arrangements do not have vases so that you may take them as they are. When we come to collect the following morning any remaining flowers will be composted by us, or if you would like us to leave specific arrangements for you, we can make a note of this and leave them behind.

Our deposit is a flat fee of $575, the balance is due 14 days before the event. We accept bank transfer and credit card and can stagger your payments if requested. 

We understand life can be unpredictable and are happy to move your date to another available date within 12 months. Deposits are non-refundable and cancellations are accepted up to 60 days from the event.

Of course, we work with many other wedding industry suppliers we would love to recommend to you, just let us know what you are looking for and we can send you some details.
