together... we've still got this!
At Level 4, One Poppy (along with all non-essential businesses) cannot operate in Auckland. We can still daydream and plan for those Summer weddings though - so feel free to contact us to start planning your sustainable floral journey.
We CAN still operate and secure flowers in Auckland Levels 1-3, however there may still be guest limits of 10 and travel restrictions. Floral and foliage choices may be limited also. Flower growers have been hit hard by the latest lockdown, and flower supply may be disrupted for a while. Luckily, we work with amazing suppliers who help us to find the best options for you. Our suppliers are indicating that flower supply is likely to be limited for a while, so it’s best to be flexible about your flower choice while we ride this wave.
What do I need to know at the different alert levels?
Alert Level 3 generally means that travel may be limited and up to 10 guests can attend events like weddings. A small wedding can still take place but no food or drinks can be served. We can still source flowers at level 3 but it’s best to be flexible as we may not be able to guarantee exact blooms.

Alert Level 2 gives use slightly more freedom (yay!) – but the number of guests are still limited. The rules are changing a lot as the situation evolves. Current Government advice for weddings at Level 2 now allow for up to 50 guests if the service is being held indoors, and up to 100 people if the ceremony is outside. This does not include staff working at weddings, who must keep a safe distance and wear a face covering. Your venue may have their own rules, so please make sure you discuss your needs with them.

If you have your 2021 wedding booked with us and you have any concerns, please contact Lorna. We are staying positive and are rolling with the punches, but you will need to be prepared to be flexible with alert level changes and bloom availability. We will keep you updated if any changes need to be made to your wedding flowers.
If you're planning your wedding, we are still preparing proposals and taking bookings. Weekends for Summer 2021/2022 are filling up fast so first check my date.
Any questions at all around pre-booked weddings or future bookings just ask x
