Back in my earliest of floral fondling adventures, a couple of dear friends entrusted my amateur ass with the delivery of their Wedding flowers. The brief included Arbour installation, aisle flowers, the Boutonnières, the Bridal Bouquet, and a Living Hairpiece.
Working with Elena, we established what she'd like to see in her arrangement which included fern (a nod to the Grooms Kiwi heritage) a variety of Protea, and orchid. As the ceremony was taking place on the grounds of the botanic gardens, we also needed to ensure that we weren't using any flowers/ plants on their 'no go' list.
Their wedding remains one of the most meaningful I've attended, and to this day I'm grateful for their trust and friendship.
