Britain Royal Wedding Comic Book

  I was thinking about who will photograph the Royal Wedding last night and the winner is: Hugo Burnand otherwise known as TopDog. Personally chosen by Kate and Wills. I wondered if he had been working out at the gym in the lead up to the event for all the long-distance running he will have to do. Then I started wondering about what they will do in their personal photo session (and  [ Read More ]

(NOTE: I AM HAVING A FEW TECHNICALL ISSUES AT PRESENT AND THIS POST WILL BE FIXED SHORTLY) New Zealand is a nation of DIYers and so it’s no wonder that this extends into the arena of weddings. One thing that I love about the wedding of Jennifer and David is that they use what they have within their means. And it makes for a lovely feel – intimate, engaging and  [ Read More ]

Picture of the Week

Such a great moment. Many Thanks:  Michal Warda

This is one of my favourite spots because it reflects my personal taste most succinctly. I am a lover of images that hold power. Images that have an  intensity to them make my heart sing. I choose photographers for this spot that reflect my personal vision of what I think to be great wedding photography. Manuel Meszarovits is a favourite of mine because he is self-taught. I love that. In the  [ Read More ]

Darling, Oh I say, How frightfully charming…..a Knitted Royal Wedding.

Posted by Fleur the Flower on April - 22 - 2011

I confess, I Love a good Royal Wedding. I love the sense of occasion, the pagentry, seeing Prince Will all grown up and the anticipation of what Kate will wear. Which is why my friends and I will be playing Ladies and High Tea-ing it for the Royal Nuptials. I think it’s my “British genes” upbringing even though I’m a Kiwi. (oops Charles got loped off there) Now for all the  [ Read More ]

Pop Art your wedding photos….

Posted by Fleur the Flower on April - 10 - 2011

I thought this was a cool idea… drag your wedding photo album out from under your bed, dust it off, pick one of your favourite pics and pop it up!!!  In memory of Pop Artist like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein you can have an awesome Pop Art portait to hang above your bed…..(except don’t put it above your bed if you live in Christchurch or Wellington). Here are some  [ Read More ]

  It still blows me away when I see how far-reaching this little blog goes……I figured last months stats would hardly be worth looking at because the blog was off air for a substantial amount of the time…..but I was wrong. I look at the stats mostly to see which countries enjoy this blog……so A BIG HEART WARMING THANK YOU TO ALL MY WORLD-WIDE VIEWERS……….from Cyprus, Argentina, South Korea, Vietnam,  [ Read More ]


Okay, I understand all the reasoning. I get it. As an artist I fully relate – you want to protect your copyright, your ideas and all the hard work you have put in. You also want to ensure that you are the one that receives the credit – that you are out in the spotlight and no-one else. You don’t want anyone to rip off your ideas and get paid  [ Read More ]

Posted by Fleur the Flower on April - 7 - 2011 Many of you may have seen this week’s Picture of the Week on other wedding blogs……but I love this image so much it deserves a spot on this blog too!! Julia Boggio from the UK captured this image whilst the couple bounced on a trampoline. IT IS TOTALLY FUN AND AWESOME!!! (and a bit small but that’s my fault). Many Thanks: Julia Boggio
