Nina + Raf, L'Aqua Darling Harbour, Sydney Wedding. What a fun couple! Nina, Raf and I met one cold, winter night to discuss their wedding over hot chocolates, and I couldn't stop thinking to myself.. 'what a bloody fun couple!'. Nina had sent me a few inspo pics, but when we got down to the

Sarah + Terry, Dunbar House Watson's Bay Wedding, Sydney.I've had the pleasure of flowering many a wedding at Dunbar House in Sydney's Watson's Bay, each wedding just as beautiful and unique as then next. But when I first met with Sarah and Terry to discuss their wedding day, I was struck by just
- Kimberley + Michael’s Wedding, The Balmain Hotel, Sydney
Full disclosure.. this is my wedding. And I loved every bloody minute of it! My hubby and I were definitely not the conventional wedding type. All we wanted was to become man and wife, have a kick-ass party and boogie all night with our best buddies (aka no freeloaders who we've only met twice). We
- Roslyn + Kurtis Wedding, Macquarie Golf Club Sydney

- Lisa + Matt’s Wedding, Deckhouse Woolwich
Once upon a time, in the late hours of the night and sometimes into the wee hours of the morning, I used to be a semi professional cake baker and food blogger. True story. Once I even made a sparkly purple stiletto out of sugar. I shit you not. It was fucking hard! So when
- Sally + David’s Wedding – The Bather’s Pavilion, Balmoral.
Oh Sally. What a bloody gem. And her brand new husband, David, is pretty excellent as well. I would liken picking your favourite couple to trying to pick your favourite kid. But these guys came pretty close to the top for 2016. I’m sure I came out of our wedding consult with stomach cramps from
- Jacqui + Adam’s Royal National Park Wedding
Jacqui's vision was simple - a vintage, rustic style wedding featuring only Australian natives and selected seasonal, locally grown flowers to tie in with the gorgeous surrounds of the Royal National Park (and her career as an environmental scientist!).Often, brides don't have the faintest idea

- How a boutonniere is born
Boutonnieres, or buttonholes, are super dooper easy to make. The hardest part is selecting the right flowers to use, as you need hardy flowers that will last out of water. My bridesmaids and I DIY'd a buttload of these buttonholes on the morning of my wedding (making your own wedding flowers or
- Sydney Flower Markets: The things I have learnt.
Important tips for making your own wedding bouquet part two. 2015 was an absolute wild ride! I finished my formal floristry training (while holding down my full time job), I booked my first official wedding in January (followed closely by my second wedding not two weeks later!), I began work
- The day I became a real life florist!
It finally happened! I officially graduated from floristry school! 32 weeks, every Saturday, far too many assessments to count and work experience on a Sunday, plus whatever freelance work I could pick up. I. Am. Exhausted.Here are a few happy snaps of my final assessment – a major display
- Luce + Dan’s Wedding
Dunbar House, Watsons Bay, Sydney.Cast your mind back to January 2015 (side note: can you believe we are almost half way though this year already?!). It was a beautiful, summers day in Sydney, the stunning Dunbar House at Watsons Bay set the scene, and I had the pleasure of flowering all of Luce
- Punch in the face
I have a new mantra that I’m adopting for my floral designs.. “If the colours don’t punch you in the face, you aint doing it right!”. It’s safe to say, I take the majority of my inspiration from colour combinations. I have a loud personality, and that definitely shines through in my loud
- You’re invited to a party!
“Hi, my name is Kimberley and I’m a pinterest-a-holic.” You feel me, right? Universities should give out degrees on pinterest. They’d make a fortune. I’m not ashamed to say that I spend/waste many, many hours on pinterest designing a home that I don’t have, cooking food that I’ll
- Surprise wedding! Dobroyd Sailing Club, Sydney
SURPRISE! I’m terrible at keeping secrets. And I’m not too keen on surprises. I like to be in control and I will do my best to snoop out any surprise you might be hiding from me. BUT towards the end of last year my cousin and I were catching up over coffee to discuss decor for
- Sydney Flower Markets: The ‘HOLY CRAP, HYDRANGEAS’ edition.
I bloody love hydrangeas. I feel like I've mentioned this previously. But I really, really do. A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon these pink beauties with the extra big, dangly flowers. I got chatting to the grower and he told me they were a new variety of hydrangea and his stand was the
- Sydney Flower Markets: The ‘Mum’s love hydrangeas’ edition.
Hydrangeas are a ‘lady’ flower. You know; a tea drinking, pinky-sticking out lady. I’m not a lady. I wish I was a lady. I’m crude. And sarcastic. Ladies are never sarcastic. But having said all that, when I turned up with a bunch of flowers for my Mumma, including a few blue hydrangeas she
- That time I wore a floral crown to the ARIAs..
I did it. I wore a floral crown to the ARIA Awards and it was fucking excellent. Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm I make children's music albums and produce children's events for the ABC. It's a pretty sweet gig. Kids are fun and making fun things for them is fun. Fun. I digress. The
- Sydney flower markets: The ‘Making your grandmother a birthday bouquet’ edition.
Apparently peonies are, like, a BIG thing in the flower industry right now. I had no idea. I had my first experience with peonies on a recent visit to the Sydney flower market. Except, the sign below says 'tipeonies'. And for the life of me, I can't figure out why. These were probably the first

- Now exiting Autumn.
Hello there. Welcome to my first post on my new blog. How thrilling for us both! Here’s a bunch of flowers I prepared earlier. Spray roses, big luscious pink roses, mini cabbages and something else I don’t know the name of. Nameless, but
