Industry Love

Anyone who knows me knows how much I just utterly adore my job. Being a part of someone’s special day, walking alongside them through their wedding planning process, the privilege of getting to know them, very often building a new friendship along the way, celebrating their ups and downs and then getting to design and create amazing beauty especially for the celebratory start of their marriage to one another,it is an incredible honour and joy. I LOVE what I do. That being said, it is hard work. Often it is crazy hard work. Long hours, deep sacrifice, often having to be an unconventional parent and spouse, bone deep exhaustion … it’s definitely not always sunshine and flowers … hearing kind, honouring words from an industry friend is like being given an enormous hug at the end of a long day ❤

I have so much respect for the wedding co-ordinators/florists/decor people of our industry. On Wednesday they are at the market with a team and multiple vehicles to collect the order, afternoon they are prepping flowers, Thursday and Friday their team is at the venue setting up - hard labor! Saturday they are co-ordinating the event, until late at night. Sunday they are clearing, cleaning and packing up. They are lucky if they get to their families on Sunday afternoon. Monday and Tuesday are the only days left for admin (emails, meetings, invoicing, stock take, marketing etc etc) Where do they get time off???? They work so much harder than you will EVER know. Thank you for making the weddings that we photograph run smoothly and look so beautiful. THANK YOU! .

This is the ever so lovely Carolyn and Maxine of Adore Weddings and Events doing their thing for Gen Fletcher.”

Derryn Scmidt thank you for this awesome moment, and thank you for your words! Getting to do work (and life, and motherhood, and friendship) with you is such a delight. We love working together with you and fellow wedding friends like you to create magic and share love … also, we get to create for such incredible people, and play with beautiful flowers … what is not to love about our jobs?

We’re in the process of updating our blog!

Thank you very much for your visit! It’s been an incredible few season’s at Adore, and in preparation for our re-brand, we are busy updating our website and blog, woo hoo! Please grant us a few week’s grace as we update our 2015 to 2017 weddings … so excited to have everything online for you to peruse soon.

I hope you have a glorious day!

Yours in love and flowers,

Carolyn and the Adore Team xxx

Keryn & Byron’s Softly Romantic Wedding

Keryn and Byron’s wedding was a bit of an Adore Family wedding. Keryn has on occasion joined us to create pretty with us as part of the team, and Byron is our very own Jessie’s brother. It is actually because of Ke that Jessie crossed our path and ended up joining the Adore team! The love already ran deep for this special family before a single bloom had touched a vase for their wedding!

Ke and By’s wedding was the epitome of soft romance, and was a flower lover’s dream. Everywhere the eye looked there was an abundance of flowers - my heart overflowed! Getting to love and bless a couple with the work of our hands is always an honour. Getting to do it for an Adore “family member” is an extra joy. By and Ke, we love you both immensely. We wish you a lifetime of gentle love, heartfelt laughter, travel, adventure and warm light. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so choosing us to create for your special day. Bless you and your special families always xxx
