Booked two bunches of multi coloured hydrangea petals a couple of months before my wedding. They were absolutely perfect and did not wither or lose their quality at all.
We had so much fun with them and they look so beautiful and natural in the photos!

I hadn’t planned on having confetti at our wedding, but decided to do so almost at the last minute. I was very glad to have stumbled across Church Confetti on the internet. Ruth was so helpful and generous. The colours that I picked initially were not ready yet and Ruth suggested an alternative, including the harlequin hydrangeas, which I had not considered. In the end, they were the perfect choice as they matched the colour scheme perfectly. What was even better was that they are smaller and lighter in weight than the rose petals, so they take off like little butterflies in the wind. Simply stunning! Ruth was very flexible with my order - I had paid for roses, but when I changed to hydrangeas (which are slightly more expensive), she didn’t charge any extra. I would highly recommend Church Confetti.

Ruth supplied us with our invites, where we used her “I flower” stationary. They were a hit with the guests.
Ruth also supplied us rose petals for on our tables as we as for confetti.
She was a real pleasure to deal with and we couldn’t have asked for more. We would happily recommend Church Confetti to anyone.

My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Ruth for our wedding invitations made from paper with flower seeds incorporated into the paper. Ruth has provided excellent customer service every step of the way. Right from talking through options to giving us sample invites the whole process has gone smoothly and we were fully involved throughout. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. We cannot wait to send out the invites and see what people grow once they are planted. Ruth is committed to providing sustainable and natural products as much as possible and this is something we really responded to in decided to have Ruth create our wedding invitations.

I was really grateful for the time Ruth spent taking me through the steps to place my order which was for a blend of several colours
The rose petals, and the colour combination Ruth helped me choose made the occasion very personal.
The packaging and presentation was superb, and the addition of a small gift made it extra-special.
Ruth’s courteous and patient help was much appreciated.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Church Confetti as the perfect place to purchase natural freeze-dried rose petals.

We had our wedding at a friends beautiful property it was in a marquee on her front lawn. The actual wedding was in front of the ponds so when we through the confetti it was really important that it was something that looked beautiful and wasn’t going to harm the beautiful grounds or need to be picked up. Ruth was extremely helpful the confetti was absolutely beautiful and worth every penny. It features in our favourite wedding photo we are so happy we took the time to research and get this quality product. Can’t thank you enough Ruth.

Our beautiful rose petals arrived this morning by courier. They were carefully packed and look stunning, exactly like the photos on the website.
Ruth has been very prompt in her replies to my emails and order and has emailed me the exact details for when the petals would be couriered and could be expected.
I would highly recommend Church Confetti. Ruth takes pride in her products and service and this part of our special day has been made easy and pleasurable.
Thank you Ruth!

I contacted Ruth to find out about biodegradable confetti and right from the word go her service has been amazing. Such friendly contact and a rush job done without hesitation. We received the parcel today of cones and petals - stunning. The presentation of the box was gorgeous. Such a beautiful idea and a little keep sake too. Thank you Ruth i will definitely recommend your services to all. Regards Karen Orr

From the moment I contacted. Ruth I received excellent service, friendly, helpful and great advice.
Our freeze dried petals with cones arrived and I immediately saw the love and care that had been put into Ruth’s work.
I cannot recommend her company enough, the only place to go for the care and attention you deserve when organising a special occasion.
Thanks again Ruth.

I came across Church Confetti while looking online for alternatives to traditional confetti for my daughter’s recent wedding. I suspected that Ruth’s rose petals may be hard like the often multi coloured freeze dried rose petals sold at party supplies companies and $2 shops. Luckily I drove to Howick to see Ruth and handled the petals myself. It’s hard to believe they are dried; they are soft and pliable and look and feel just like fresh petals. They are packed in airproof cellophane bags and are easy to store.
My daughter’s gown was ivory so we bought two packets of ivory petals. The wedding venue didn’t lend itself to multiple guests with petals in cones, so I bought the lidded square woven flax baskets available from Spotlight. We used both halves as baskets for the petals and the two ushers held the baskets while the bridesmaid and best man threw double handfuls of petals high over the bride and groom.
This looked fantastic, with the petals being big enough, yet light enough, to float to the ground and be very visible in the photos, The toss tradition really adds joy and laughter to the end of the ceremony and these petals are not fiddly like bubbles with little containers. Plus, of course, they are fully biodegradable and look pretty on the ground.
I thoroughly recommend Church Confetti’s products to others and with Ruth being friendly, interested and helpful, their customer service is excellent.

Bought freeze dried rose petals from Church Confetti. Highly recommend this company. They were in touch quickly and the product is amazing. Beautiful deep red petals were delivered the next day along with instructions on caring for them. I would happily deal with this business again. Wish all the wedding companies I dealt with were so quick and hassle free.

Ruth was a pleasure to work with - she made the exact colour we needed, had them ready exactly when she said they would be, and they look beautiful!
Ruth and her husband were extremely lovely when we went to pick the petals up - its so nice amidst the stress of planning a wedding to meet such a lovely couple who are so helpful and encouraging - and provide such great service! Thank you to them for making this wedding stuff so much easier and exciting!

Wow! What a wonderful, affordable and proffesional service. Two days before the wedding i came across the church confetti facebookpage and fell in love with the products Ruth creates. Still struggling to find some bio- degradable confetti and wanting to arrange a special surprise for my sister i arranged 10 confetti cones personalised with the bride and grooms name, wedding date and a special sister poem. With such short noitice i was convinced we wouldnt be able to get them arranged in time but ruth was fantastic. Informing me quickly and efficiently with what was posssible and what she could create and the end result was fantastic. The cones were filled with beautiful dried roses and made a fantastic keepsake for the guests. They were beautifully presented and brought lots of tears to my sisters ans guests eyes. I would highly reccomend anyone to ruth and her talents. Compared to most wedding services the products are also extremely reasonably priced which is an added bonus!

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Ruth at Church Confetti. She was very obliging, accommodating and flexible. We are totally thrilled with the end result and we know the petal confetti will enhance the wedding. Although the petals seem expensive, we appreciate the work involved in the freeze drying process which results in a true quality product.
The printed cones add a professional touch to the occasion.

I’m so happy I found Church Confetti to add a little something extra special to my day. Although I contacted her 2 weeks before my wedding Ruth was so helpful. The petals looked so beautiful in the photos and she made the petal cones so beautiful, I had no idea how amazing they’d look. I’ve kept one so I’ll have it forever. Thanks so much Ruth.

Richard and I won The Edge same sex wedding competition and would like to say a BIG thanks to Ruth at Church Confetti she is are such a kind, amazing person who made us feel very welcome to her home and seeing her the night before the wedding really made us feel good as we knew we were in good hands.
The rose petals on the wedding day looked so beautiful they made our wedding look so elegant.
When the petals rained down from the mezzanine above us as we walked back down the isle together, it was like we were in a royal wedding and we loved it and we will always remember this moment.
Thank you so much from Big Richard & Little Richard

Wedding Date: June 1st 2013
I’m not sure if I’ve come across a more accommodating service! Having arrived from UK to wed virtually a day later on Waiheke without isle petals Ruth (it seemed) expedited the service and met us at the ferry terminal to hand over the gorgeous petals. Upon our initial correspondence to the end product was a personal service and Ruth took away what could have been a very stressful situation and replaced it with a “blimey, wish more services were like this!”.
Thank you for all you did.
Wedding Date: November 16, 2012
Great service, went out of the way to make sure I had the petals on time. Petals are priced similarly to everywhere else so no real competitive edge there but the service and friendly communications make Church confetti the better option.
Wedding Date: March 1, 2013
Ruth was extremely pleasant to deal with and very quick at replying to any questions I had by email.
I would highly recommend her, the petals look gorgeous, very happy

We ordered the rose confetti from Church confetti having met Ruth at the Howick wedding expo. She was delightful and easy to deal with, extremely accommodating in terms of delivering the petals despite it being a public holiday. The petals themselves were just gorgeous, as were the lovely white ‘cones’ we filled and gave to each guest. The petals and cones arrived beautifully presented in white boxes lined with pink tissue paper tied with beautiful pink ribbon….very lovely!
We also hired a lovely white piece of furniture to stack the cones in, and it looked so elegant on the day….lots of people commented on it!
All in all I would highly recommend Ruth and Church confetti…lovely product and excellent service!
