PLANNING

Do your research with Pinterest and wedding magazines - both print and online. Some of my favourites include Wedding Sparrow, Polkadot Bride, Magnolia Rouge, Martha Stewart Weddings, Hello May. Save your favourite images to a Pinterest board and you will start to see a theme and colour palette that you are drawn to. Then find a florist who suits the style that you love. For me, designs are best when they are created spontaneously. It is important for me to create authentic, beautiful, passionate, elegant, intimate and timeless design.

Inspiration can start with a venue, to bring life to a room, to enhance existing architectural details such as a fireplace or window frames. Then I layer in ceiling height, natural light and statement furniture pieces.

BUDGET

Get a feel for how much you would like to spend in total on your flowers. Be realistic though - flowers aren't cheap and COVid has resulted in increased pricing due to the cost of shipping and freight. Once you understand your budget, your florist can guide where best to spend it to get the most impact.

SEASONAL INFLUENCES

Working with the seasons - such as embracing the quiet winter months to warm a room, or entice a sense of cosiness - I rely heavily on feelings to design. Creating through emotions results in a completely individual style that is authentic and not easily emulated. How do you want to feel in the space, and how can I reflect that in the mood - gentleness, calm, romance, nurturing and serenity. I think this quiet, organic style is my preferred design style.

My Flowers at Haberfield online store has changed its name to Gathered Floral. This is just a name change, and not a change in ownership. Thank you for all your support in 2020 - it has been a huge year and I'm very grateful.

I am currently closed for a break, reopening Monday 1st February.
