Hey flower friends,
I’m so glad that Autumn is finally upon us. It feels like the time for hibernating is night at hand and a time for recuperation and revitalisation. I know that sounds like something you do at the beginning of a new year but I always find that in the cooler seasons people, including myself, start to slow down more and then come Spring, life and its possibilities begin to open up again. It's all about that ebb and flow.
I've been working on some things and had hoped they'd be ready at the beginning of the year. Then life happened and you just have to put one foot in front of the other and just "let it be" as Pau McCartney would sing (insert heart eyes). But hoorah, the day has finally come!
I'm excited to share with you THREE new things that are now available in my online shop, plus some discount codes for you, yay! and one new service that I provide for pregnant and breast/bottle feeding Mamas. All this in time for Mother's Day too :).
Those of whom have been following my flower journey from the beginning will know that I am also a photographer. Running a business can certainly mean that you lose touch with your creative side as you're essentially a one-man-show running all aspects of a business when bigger businesses/companies have a team of people working with them. One thing that keeps me going is my belief that flowers can heal and have a special language that hit the spot when words may be tad inadequate to convey. My fine art prints are one-of-a-kind and are taken by me of the beauty that I see in flowers. Currently there are 5 prints to choose from and you can choose from 8x10" all the way up to A0. My prints are for the ultimate flower lovers who want longevity. You can read more about them here. Oh, and feel free to give me some suggestions of what to take pictures of next! I would LOVE your input :)

I'm forever being told that I'm a old lady trapped in a young person's body. I have always embraced that... It has seemed to me easier to just embrace myself (flaws and all) than conform to something I'm not ;p. My point is, I still love writing with a pen and paper... in cards, notepads, what have you! Call me old fashioned, but I know I'm not alone in this hehe. The simplicity of these darlings are perfect for any occasion and without any tremendous effort make you look very thoughtful and organised ;). All images have been photographed by yours truly (at one point or another they will all be available as a fine art print :)). You can read more about my blank floral greeting cards here.

I always get asked if I "do weddings." I had put them off for quite a while until I realised how much I LOVE transforming spaces and adding to the atmosphere of a very, very special day. Not everyone wants the whole kit and caboodle however, so I created this no-fuss wedding package for those brides who know what they want and when they want it. You get full control over the colour palette and the flowers selected and I make sure that I turn up with what you want amazing and beautiful. You can read more about how this works here.

Before I started Floristry, I studied a year of Midwifery as since I was 18 years-old I had wanted to become a Midwife. I love anything and everything to do with Midwifery and really honed into what it was that I loved about it—women! I think we are remarkable and am honoured to be a woman and be surrounded by so many wonderful—flawed and all—women. My aim of this service is to capture mama's at a precious moment in time. It doesn't have to be anywhere fancy, just as long as we can capture this fleeting moment—even though it may not seem like it during the 9 months, argh! You can read more about this here. It's also a great gift idea for example, a baby shower. My siblings and I usually split the cost of a big purchase for one of our other family members :). I do believe that every mama should get some professional photos taken of such a special moment. I remember hating photos my mum made us take when we were younger and now I look back at them fondly (and cringe at some haha).
When you fill out the enquiry form let me know that you want a 10% discount!
Well that's it for now beautiful people! I would love to hear your thoughts on any of my new offerings <3. You'll be hearing from me next this Wednesday when I show you, first, this week's posy designs. You can pre-order here. Until then, have a fabulous start of the week.
