How did you get into wedding floral arrangements?

As a passionate gardener & botanical artist with a love of color and interesting textures, these were the initial hints to develop my floristry skills. Raised on the southeast coastline of Australia very remotely- the vast bushlands in my backyard, and huge cliff lines to the beach and ocean were my whole world as a child & becoming a florist was the only thing I knew how to do, it came very naturally and I’ve never looked back!

How would you describe your floral arrangement style?

Our tag line is simple, natural, and elegant- I would also add timeless. Trends come and go so regularly, and we try to stay true to our heart’s creativity, grounded in what I see when I walk through the natural woodlands in beautiful Vermont and my own flower garden.

What inspires your work?

I draw my inspiration from my beloved homeland Australia, daily walks in nature with my two ridgebacks, and my colorful flower garden in Warren, VT. I am also a botanical illustrator and landscape painter, sometimes the abstract nature of designing a painting creates the feel of a wedding floral palette too! My artistic worlds cross over in many ways- all with nature as the primal inspiration.  I’m always observing how plants grow, move, change and their colors. (Nature always puts the right colors together!) I avoid the online world as much as possible for inspiration.

Any special tips for couples for choosing/working with a wedding florist in general?

Find someone who is passionate about the natural world. Someone who knows flowers, their bloom cycles ,and their season,  as well as understands color theory. It’s also important to find someone who gives you all the time you need and will work with your budget. A strong social media presence doesn’t mean they are any better at what they do.  In short: Find someone who knows flowers, their seasons, and your budget!

What’s your favorite moment during a wedding?

Always, always, always meeting the bride in person for the first time and seeing her reaction to her bouquet… we are usually both crying with joy!

What’s your favorite thing to do in VT? / Local spot to visit?

All the magnificent natural trails and places to walk, the rivers and their swimming holes, the lakes and their secret spots away from the crowds to swim. I love to cook from our local farm CSA so don’t eat out much. (But my daughter and I adore Taco Gordo near our studio in the Old North End, Burlington!)

If you weren’t a wedding florist what would you do?

I’d be without doubt a full time book binder, botanical illustrator/ landscape painter! I take classes at all the Art Schools in Burlington weekly: Burlington City Arts, Shelburne Craft School and The Davis Studio are my favorites. The Studio Place Arts in Barre offers amazing bookbinding courses too.

What’s a fun fact about yourself?

I love to dance with my daughter, and I adore surfing in Maine, Costa Rica and my country- Australia. I was raised in Bells Beach, Australia, other than my child and two ridgebacks, surfing is my greatest joy!
