Cosmopolitan Bride Wedding Flowers Photoshoot

Love in Rose Petals

Love in Rose Petals created for Cosmpolitan Bride

We have just finished a wedding shoot with Cosmpolitan Bride.  It was such an exciting day.  Four of our florists attended the shoot and made up the bouquets as the models got dressed.

The photos will be published in the summer edition of Cosmpolitan Bride – can’t wait to see them – and to share some behind the scenes photos.

Corporate Flowers at the Sydney Hilton

This is one of my favourite floral arrangements that we did at the Sydney Hilton.  It featured a mixture of orchids – green singapore orchids with pale cimbidiums.

This martini style floral arrangement would also be a funky wedding table arrangement.

An elegant wedding at Centennial Parklands with flowers by Kavelle

One of our favourite brides, Mellissah, was recently wed to her beau, Jonathan at Paddington’s beautiful old church,  St Matthias Anglican Church. (Cnr Oxford & Moore Park Rd).

The bride chose elegant cream vendela roses for her bouquet – these are a traditional wedding rose and never fail to impress,

Their reception was held at Centennial parklands.

Kavelle Flowers created the floral theme for the wedding party and reception and the brilliant Israel Smith and his team took the wonderful photos.

Here are  some of the special moments of Mellissah & Jonathan’s day photographed by Israel Smith.

We love you NikkiNikki's specialty - submerged flowers

Nikki, our junior florist from Thailand, came third in the Interflora TAFE cup today.

Nikki first came to our studio two years ago and begged me for an opportunity to work and learn in our studio. 

I am unbelievably proud of her as she has worked really hard to learn all there is about floristry – and her wiring is second to none.

Great stuff Nikki.

Melissa also competed and, although she didn’t win a place, I still think she is a winner to have had the courage to compete – it was her first competition and she was competing against students many years her senior.

I am very very proud of both of them.

Interflora TAFE cup competition

Nikki and Melissa, two of my assistant florists, are competing in the Interflora TAFE cup competition.

Nikki is currently studying floristry at Pearsons School of Floristry while Melissa is studying at Ultimo TAFE and being mentored by the leading floral designer Christina Lewis, Head of the Ultimo TAFE School of Floristry.

I have told both girls just to enjoy the day as it is a great opportunity to meet other members of the floral community and to broaden their floristry schools.

oh, and they actually have a hard act to follow – Sarah won the TAFE Cup last year and Parthenie won the Flower Growers Competition.

Go girls!

Sydney Gift Fair – hand blown glass vases

Spent a great day at the Sydney Gift Fair at Darling Harbour yesterday.

This is where I source all my wonderful vases.  As all my customers know, I have the one of the best range of vases in Sydney – all shapes and sizes and colours.  In fact I actually think I have the largest collection as vases are my passion and I cannot resist buying anything new I see.

As you can imagine at my home in Coogee, I always have fresh flowers.  But what gives me the greatest pleasure is just one or two blooms in a bud vase. 

One of my favourites is this hand blown glass vase from Denmark.
