What our clients are saying about us

Rebecca did an amazingly FANTASTIC job at our wedding! Everything was absolutely perfect thanks to her. 

The flowers were exactly what we wanted: pops of colour, native ferns and gorgeous peonies. On top of that, the reception was incredible. The cake decorating was amazing, the tables looked gorgeous, and our floral chandeliers were just incredible.

ABSOLUTELY NAILED IT. We will be forever grateful.

Tim + Helena 


Thank you so much for everything. From the first time we met you on Zoom to when we arrived in Wanaka, you were such a joy to be around. 

We had so much fun with you, and your team made the day so easy. We could not have been happier.

You did such an amazing job with all the planning and styling for our day; we loved every little detail!
