Wedding bouquets Roses - Bridal roses





This page highlights some of the beautiful Rose Bouquets we have designed for Auckland Weddings. Roses are eternally popular - available all year round and with a wide and wonderful choice of colours. From soft and delicate and sweetly scented to rich, velvety and mysterious. There is a rose to suit every palette and to co-ordinate with every wedding theme!

Roses are definately the most popular choice for bridal flowers, romantic, significant, fragrant and just plain beautiful. We choose the roses carefully to colour match to both your wedding dress, and your bridesmaids gowns.


We are privileged to have one of the very best rose growers in New Zealand right on our doorstep, here in West Auckland. The major benefit of this is we can order direct. This ensures we can get the right colour and the right quantities we need for your wedding.

I would love to work with you in creating
a perfect rose bouquet for you- Please contact our Wedding Designer - Jo for your Free consultation, or please do send for one of our wedding flower booklets.





wedding planning helpful hint

One of the things that makes me most sad when beginning to work with brides is when they bring in pictures - usually sourced online - that feature roses that we just can't get in New Zealand.
(Although this is changing with the arrival of the fab David Austin Roses) -->

We have a smaller population, less flower growers, and this does have an imact on the availability of some flowers including roses.


Did you know in America - most roses are imported directly from Columbia? Different growing conditions, bigger growers, more sales = more varieties.
Even the fact we do not allow Genetic modification has an impact on what varieties of flowers we can get here!

David Austin Roses are Finally available in New Zealand from December 2012! david austin roses are coming to New Zealand at lastPicture courtesy of David Austin Roses

We are SO excited to announce that at last the gorgeous David Austin roses are going to be available in New Zealand. Those amazing, luscious frilly garden roses that you have seen on international wedding blogs are now being grown in Auckland, by our premium rose grower Van Lier Nurseries.

I can't wait to design with these wonderful scented roses, perfect for the current vintage wedding trends. To start with they will be available in cream, a soft peach and pale pink. This is the most exciting new release in flowers in New Zealand- Well worth the wait!

Over fifteen years ago, David Austin embarked upon a completely new and exciting breeding programme, designed to transform our expectations of luxury cut roses. His current collection includes six exclusive varieties which combine all the beauty and charm of David Austin’s garden roses with the year-round availability of modern roses.

These new roses have quickly become some of the most highly desired flowers in the world, and seem set to revolutionise the world of cut roses in the same way that the English Roses changed the character of garden roses. Ideal for gift bouquets, arrangements for the home or for all kinds of special occasions, their glorious, garden-inspired style sets them completely apart from other roses.

David Austin's Cut Roses gradually develop from tight buds into large, perfectly-formed blooms, packed with many delicately furled petals. When fully open, the flower forms are truly spectacular, varying from deep or shallow cups to perfect, quartered rosettes, some with a classic button eye. Their delightful old rose, myrrh or fruity fragrances bring the natural charm and spirit of the old roses back to the world of the cut rose.
