“Flowers always make people better,happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul” – Luther Burbank
I started getting into flowers nearly 11 years ago. I think it’s in my blood. I have a Dutch background you see so why not! My passion started after my granddad passed and I filled the house with different designs. I knew then I wanted more from this.
After going to college and doing a lot of work experience I decided I preferred to do this on my own and within the wedding industry.
I absolutely love seeing my Brides smile when they see their bouquet for the first time. The look on the groom’s face when he can’t figure out how the buttonhole goes on and the flower girls delight she gets to have a bouquet too.
There is so much happiness around one day and so many things make this happiness come together. As much as us florists don’t get to always see the full day we get to see the start and the finish with the photos.
I’m a bit of perfectionist so I meet my brides a couple of times and I’m always available for them to call or email me. I think they find comfort in knowing I’m working very hard to get exactly what they’ve asked and this is one part of their day they need not worry about.
