Della + Rob

July of this year was a beautiful time full of many gorgeous locally grown flowers and this early July wedding featured some of the most beautiful locally grown flowers from here on the island!

Della and Rob were married at Victoria Golf Club and I had the honour of creating for them. The flowers for this wedding included ranunculus by Mt. Newton Floral, Foxgloves from Little Bee Blooms, Scabiosa and Roses from Cartref Gardens, Dahlias and more Roses from Busy Bee Farm and Florals, and Sweet Peas from Still Wild. Please note the greens were not local.

Thank you Della and Rob for letting me a part of your day.

Danae + Jackson

This past summer I had the great pleasure of being a part of this gorgeous wedding that took place at Maple Bay Manor just outside of Duncan. The bride had requested all white florals, and honestly initially I was a little hesitant due to my love of colour, but I found myself surprisingly in love with the challenge and beauty of working with only white flowers. Instead of looking at colour theory, I was instead drawn to texture and shape, which is something I consider normally, but it was my main focus for this wedding.

All of the flowers for this wedding were locally grown. Many from local farms here on Vancouver Island including: Busy Bee Farm and Florals, Still Wild, Cartref Gardens, City Fields Flower Farm and Mt. Newton. The only item imported was the eucalyptus, besides that all the greens were also local.

There was a very talented group of vendors that came together for this wedding, with Emma McCormick leading the way as the wedding planner.

Iā€™m also excited to share that I entered some photos from this wedding and was a finalist in the best wedding florals category at the Vancouver Island Wedding Awards.

This wedding was stunning in so many ways and I had a number of connections to the wedding including close friends and high school classmates, so it was lovely to be a part of.

Spring Bouquet Workshop

At the end of May we had our first Bouquet Workshop! It was held outdoors in a beautiful property out in Saanichton and we had wonderfully sunny weather. 12 participants attended and we chatted and learnt together using 100% locally grown flowers from right here in Victoria. The lovely Kim from Busy Bee Farm and Florals supplied all of the flowers, which included many spring favourites like peonies, ranunculus, anenomes, foxglove, snapdragons and more! 

All the photos were taken by the incredibly talented Rachael Alexandra Co.  ( www.rachaelalexandra.co ) 

Thank you to all the participants! Cannot wait for the next one !!
