IN BLOOM

New Zealand Weddings - - PLANNING -

Dunedin florist Jo­lene Wilkin­son of Estelle Flow­ers (es­telle­flow­ers.co.nz) on mak­ing the most of what’s in bloom in the South… “My wed­ding sea­son favourites in­clude pe­onies, rhodo­den­drons, black magic roses, hy­drangeas, dahlias and scabiosa – all are grown lo­cally and love the south­ern cli­mate. Otago has the ideal cli­mate for pe­onies, and this co­in­cides per­fectly with the be­gin­ning of the busy sum­mer wed­ding sea­son. I love dark red charm pe­onies when com­bined with lo­cally grown black magic roses and some tex­tured fo­liage. It’s a re­ally moody and gor­geous look.

Rhodo­den­drons flower in Dunedin at the start of the pe­ony sea­son so this is one of our favourite flo­ral com­bi­na­tions with trails of jas­mine vine, fresh green vibur­num snow­ball and a few roses.”
