How I got into weddings: When I was planning my own wedding, I knew that I wanted a bouquet that I would be able to keep forever. I loved every minute I spent making my “dream bouquet”, and after the wedding, I started making bouquets for other brides. I opened my shop on Etsy, and the rest is history!
What is your favourite part of a wedding day? When the groom sees the bride for the first time. Whether it’s as she’s walking down the aisle, or before they take their pictures – it’s such a sweet and special moment.
Best piece of advice you’d give to brides and grooms? Enjoy the entire process (including the planning). Don’t let stress get in the way of a wonderful and special experience!
What is your dream travel destination? Fiji, Bora Bora – If it’s tropical and has a beach, I’m ready to go!
Any new year resolutions for 2016? My goal is to offer a wider variety of wedding backdrop and garlands for our 2016 brides.
Silver or Rose Gold? Rose gold
Peonies or Succulent? Both! And of course, eucalyptus.
