Hi, I’m Toni and we are based in the beautiful Hawkes Bay of New Zealand.

I’m a self-confessed perfectionist, keen DIY-er, wedding addict and most importantly a trained florist. Magdalen Hill is a result of my insatiable desire to create, make things look beautiful, my travels and very own love story. Let me explain…..

Growing up in a creative family I was encouraged to explore the treasures in the world around me, an inspiration that still flows freely into my work to this day. After studying floristry, I quickly became a wedding florist then headed to London. There I continued to work as a florist. The jobs were amazing and often for the rich and famous; it was all very rock ’n roll. On a trip home I fell in love with Mr Hill, a wonderful man who does all he can to make my dreams come true. Very quickly my wandering feet were firmly settled, and Napier was home again. Our wee man Cooper soon followed and more recently little Parker.

Becoming a mum, my desire to create was still ever present, so adding to my already crazy life Magdalen Hill was born. These days you will often find me out foraging, collecting bits and pieces for my latest creation with my boys in tow. Sharing my love of nature and its beauty with them is something I treasure.

Working with a select number of couples each season allows me the dedicated time to create the bespoke florals and beautifully designed spaces that Magdalen Hill is known for. I get stupidly excited by all the little details; have high expectations which I apply to all I do and my enthusiasm for your vision will be infectious. All of this adds up to me being able to capture the essence of you and your story in what I do.

So, while I am one of the lucky ones living the dream I also look forward to creating yours.

My flowers were one of my favourite parts of my wedding. They were absolutely gorgeous – far more beautiful than I ever imagined. Toni did an incredible job and made them exactly how I wanted. I was so impressed at how she made the colours, flower types and size of all the floral completely match my “boho country rose garden” wedding theme. Toni was so lovely, genuine, relaxed, and professional to work with, and it was perfect for me to share my ideas with her via Pinterest. I particularly loved my bridal bouquet and the amazing floral necklaces Toni made for my bridesmaids – they matched their dresses perfectly. The price was very reasonable which I was also very happy about. Toni is obviously so passionate about what she does and I thank her for bringing so much more excitement and beauty to my wedding. I’ll never forget how happy and excited I was when Toni arrived to deliver my flowers on the morning of my wedding day.   – Francie Barton
Toni, Thanks so much for being a part of our special day. Everything you did was amazing and EXACTLY how I had imagined it. We loved it all. You totally understood what we were going for and executed it beautifully. We will definitely recommend you to anyone planning a special event in the Bay. You were amazing! Thanks again – Marla and Mark.
Magdalen Hill was the most efficient, professional, reliable and talented team I dealt with throughout my whole wedding planning process. Early on we clicked about how flowers make any wedding come to life and I felt like a weight came off my shoulders by securing this fabulous floral team for my big day.   My vision of 'Italian countryside, rustic but not too shabby-chic and a touch of glamour' may have seemed complicated to anyone else but Toni made it come to life with more love and attention to detail than I could have imagined. Not only did she listen to my creative ideas and budget needs, she worked so hard to source incredible blooms well in advance. I felt supported and confident in her ability. Toni and Anna went the extra mile by driving with a car full of flowers from Hawkes Bay to Gisborne, worked solidly for 12 hours without a break all the while smiling and being so friendly to everyone in my bridal party. I can’t say thank you enough. Brides, you will never regret choosing the gorgeous team at Magdalen Hill.  Lots of thanks again   – Alex Shanks
I couldn't be any more relieved that someone recommended I ask Toni about doing my wedding bouquets, instead of attempting to do them myself. Toni listened to what I wanted, and I was so amazingly appreciative that she delivered my vision within my budget. In the week or two before my wedding my thoughts were evolving and I asked Toni to do extra and she was happy to meet my requests. I had so many compliments about the flowers on our wedding day and they look stunning in our photos. Thank you so much, Toni, you are very talented x   – Dani
I can only begin to explain how wonderful Toni is to deal with! Professional, but easy natured and offers you ideas you may not have thought of yourself. Being a makeup artist, I get to see the fruits of Toni's labour when her exquisite florals are pride of place at weddings. Therefore, it really wasn't a question of who would be doing my flowers for my own wedding. My flowers were out of this world, and Toni really nailed my vision. You could say Toni gets in your mind and really feels what it is you want. I cannot recommend Toni enough, make sure you get in touch with her for any occasion, you won't be disappointed.   – Erika Herries
Toni was recommended to us by several people and the minute I met her I could see why. She is warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable, and gave us such great advice on the aesthetics for our special day. Toni really put us at ease and we felt confident that she understood out brief and would create the perfect backdrop for our wedding. Needless to say we were absolutely blown away by everything she did from the bouquets to the stunning archway at the altar. We loved it all! The feedback from our guests was so complimentary and echoed our thoughts on all that Toni had done to create such a beautiful atmosphere. Thank you Toni we are forever grateful of the special part you played in our magical day. – Kirsty and Craig
I am so happy with the flowers that Toni at Magdalen Hill made for me on my Anzac Day wedding. They were perfect and I loved everything about them. I appreciate the time she took to discuss the flower options, colours and style. Toni made everything so very easy for me in a really stressful time. The communication was quick and simple and what she had crafted from my limited flower knowledge was perfect! I worked with a small budget, but Toni made my bridal bouquet spectacular! I got more than my money’s worth for my beautiful flowers on my perfect day and so many compliments from my guests. The bold reds and oranges fitted perfectly with my autumn theme. Thanks again for adding to the magic! - Raima Kyle
Toni did an outstanding job with the flowers for our wedding and also assisted on the day with styling the marquee. Toni listened to all our ideas and helped us achieve the overall look we wanted, we couldn’t have been more happier with how it all came together! She was a big help as we live in Melbourne, it was great to have someone local to the Hawke’s Bay to assist us with sourcing the lighting and candle holders etc. as well as creating the beautiful bouquets and table arrangements – Toni is passionate and amazing at what she does! Thank you so much Toni x   – Kate and Matt
I had found Toni after admiring a lot of her work online. Toni instantly understood my aesthetic and style, something that is very individual. She brought in elements for Nick, that I hadn't even thought of, her vision, style and imagination is incredible, so much so that I didn't even worry about what she was going to create as I completely trusted she understood my style and what I wanted to achieve. Our wedding styling  was incredible, much much better that I could have imagined and completely unique and individual, from the incredible teapot bridesmaids bouquets, to the floral lampshades above the bar, to incorporating bits and pieces of our own things into the table decorations, the card box and the bullet casings bullet holes for the boys. Toni created for us something out of a magazine, better than we could have ever imagined and so incredibly special. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Toni to anyone, and if you are getting married in Hawkes Bay you should choose Magdalen Hill!   –  Hayleigh and Nick
Toni, you did the most amazing job with our wedding flowers and table design! You made it such a breeze and so hassle free.  Right from our first contact I felt at ease and like you totally understood us as a couple and that really reflected on the day.  Our guests all commented on how 'us' everything was on our tables, you nailed it. The flowers were just so stunning! I had to have them framed! I would recommend you to anyone on their special day! A million thank you's.   –  Angelina & Jimmy x
Toni had been by my side from day one, planning and creating the style for our beautiful day. She spent numerous hours discussing and creating our vision for the day. No idea was ever too big or able to be achieved. Toni was full to the brim with wonderful ideas and made sure everything was personalised. She began to know me very well quickly which I loved, we had such an open honest relationship and I trusted her with every single decision.  You could say Toni was the hand brake of the relationship and at times put everything into perspective and kept me on track. I wondered at times if Toni slept. She never missed a thing, and was extremely organised. Nothing was out of place the whole day, right down to the finishing touches. While peonies and pretty vintage crystal featured heavily throughout my wedding it was the Cigar & Whiskey bar for the boys that stole the show. I don't know if words can even really describe the talent Toni has when it comes to flowers. Her knowledge and love for them is so magical.I will forever be so grateful and blessed to have worked with one of the most talented ladies I know, Toni has talents that will continue to shine and amaze anyone that gets the opportunity to work with her. Her continuous support and love will never be forgotten and will always hold a special place in my heart. – Louise Browne
Thank you so much, Toni, for doing our amazing wedding flowers. I had no idea what the end results would be, so when they turned up on the day, I was happily surprised! They were absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't have asked for better; they were perfect and tied in nicely with our theme. The bridesmaids and I really enjoyed carrying them around with us all day, and the guys enjoyed wearing theirs! You were a joy to work with Toni, and the flowers you did for us truly were works of art, true to the unique 'Magdalen Hill' style. Thanks again for everything!  – Jess and Ethan  
Toni's work is 2nd to none - the creative passion she puts into each and every arrangement / design she does means that everything she produces is stunning - Toni has just created my wedding bouquets and when they arrived to my cottage I cried. This sums up the emotion evoking work she creates . Thank you Toni for helping to create a romantic winter warmth to our special day x    - Samantha Liebenberg
I started using Toni as a stylist for our product shoots about a year ago. I am absolutely thrilled at the results she produces for us every time without fail. Superb attention to detail and a love of what she does shines through. She is hands down the best stylist I've worked with, and nothing is too much trouble for her. I would recommend Toni to anyone looking to take their product to the next level.    -Becks Luca, Dollyrockets.
I am in awe.....words cannot describe the beauty I walked into on my wedding day. I was absolutely stunned she's a genius the best in Hawkes bay if not New Zealand! Working with her was amazing I felt like a friend not a client. She listened to my opinions and just blew me away was more then I could have dreamed of. The flower crown and anklet Toni made for me were absolutely stunning and I cried when I had to take them off as I wish I could have lived in them! I recommend Toni,  no one else would come close xx  Will always remember how beautiful you made everything and me look and feel!  - Ana Burridge
Toni's relaxed yet methodical approach to her work was present from our first phone call. She immediately understood the ideas we had and helped us narrow these into a theme that would work across our wedding, and all within our budget. Her advice was never solely about flowers but about how to link ideas, colours and motifs together. She was flexible and innovative to work with and the end result was so much better than we could have envisaged. The girls adored their posies, I had endless comments on the colours and structure of my bouquet and our table flowers really completed our venue. We strongly recommend her to anyone who is getting married and she will be our go-to for any flowers for functions, family events in the future. – Vanessa Fox
