Shauney & Tim
Prior to meeting with Natalie at The Gatherers, I hadn’t really put too much thought into my wedding flowers.
I have never been a big flower person nor did I know what type or the names of flowers I liked! I had a very broad image in my head of ‘beachy yet modern’ using neutral tones that tie into the coastal surroundings and the beautiful Taranaki sunset. I also had some rose gold candle holders that I knew I wanted to use and somehow tie into the floral table settings.
From the very little direction I gave Natalie, she managed to put together a proposal that immediately hit the nail on the head. I did not know what to expect from a wedding florist but this very quickly exceeded my expectations.
It was so lovely to have a proposal with pictures and colour schemes that I then used as a basis for wedding decorations and even bridesmaid dresses. As we are Auckland based we only met with Natalie in person once and had a quick Skype catch-up a couple of weeks out from the wedding. On the day of the wedding, the flowers were absolutely breath-taking as you can tell from the photos. The beautiful archway was definitely the highlight right down to the beautifully delicate flower girl crowns and button holes for the men.
I had also received comments from guests that mentioned the table settings were the nicest they had seen at a wedding. We re-used the flowers the next day at our after-wedding Lunch and they still looked incredible.
I couldn’t recommend Natalie and The Gatherers highly enough, they were a dream to work with and the flowers truly were a statement piece at our wedding and played a huge part in the success of our special day.
Thanks again, Shauney & Tim xx
