Do you style events outside of wellington?

Yes absolutely. We can travel to anywhere in New Zealand to style your event. Travel and accommodation fees apply. Alternatively we can design your event from Wellington and have everything shipped to you, or you can consider our design only option. We work with you to design your event look and then hand over the reigns. Includes a mood board and source list to make your job super duper easy. 

What do you charge? 

We don't charge a set package fee as each of our clients have unique requirements. We include an estimate of costs with all of our proposals and we are happy to work with you to make your budget work for you. Our costing is broken down into items hired or purchased from us, our design costs, labour and delivery.

Do I need to have the full styling service? What if I just want floral and a few hire items?

We highly recommend our full styling service as it's where we truly excel, however we know that all of our clients have different needs and so we're happy to offer our floral design, and hire items as stand alone services.

I need help pulling together the look for my event but I'd like to set it up myself. Is this a service you offer?

Yes! We offer a design only package which includes a free initial consultation, a second consultation to finalise the detail, a mood board and source list for $500.
