Flowers for a Friends Wedding

I'm still buzzing from my friends beautiful wedding yesterday. Chelsea (who is an amazing clothes designer and once had a very successful clothing label Chelsea Thorpe and more recently has been the designer for Never Black) made her own dress, not to mention 3 bridesmaids dresses and 3 flower girl dresses, oh and wait her sisters dress too! They were all absolutely gorgeous - of course!
On Friday arvo I spent most of the morning picking flowers out at my parents organic orchard and then spent the arvo at the wedding reception venue arranging the flowers for the big day. The reception was held in an art gallery upstairs of Gisborne's main street. It's a fantastic space actually - white walls with the odd bit of raw concrete exposed, big windows looking out to the street below and a lovely wide balcony. The "theme" for the wedding was slightly eclectic, with vintage mismatched cotton napkins and tons of vintage bottles and vases in all different shapes and sizes - rallied together from family and friends. So I had lots of fun filling these little treasures with gorgeous flowers! Here are a few shots from Friday....

And Saturday - Yes the flowers did last... even though I had nightmares on Friday night that they had all wilted!!

What a gorgeous day it was...
