In my daily job as a florist and decorator, I enjoy making the bride’s bouquet the most. I usually do it the night before to avoid surprises, plus, I am the person who takes time to do things I love the most. My usual ritual is to bring a bucket of selected blooms in front of my TV, or if there’s nothing good, past episodes of Grey’s Anatomy works best. In the quietness of the night, that’s when I feel relaxed and productive. After putting the finishing touch, I meet my bed.
I’ve worked with planners who have given me beautiful photos of inspiration photos, and the best ones always leave the finishing touches to me, relying on my creativity. I find that you can’t replicate Pinterest’ posts, neither I can replicate what I had made a week before.
On the D-day of the wedding day, I usually present the handbouquet the first to the planner, and ask if it’s alright. Most of the times, I am given the chance to meet the bride (who’s probably doing their hair and make up at that time) to present one thing she will be carrying the entire day of her Wedding Day; the bouquet. The usual thoughts that run through my mind is..whether she likes it, whether it’s too pink, too green, or too anything else, or whether she’s too tall or too small for this. I take my bouquets seriously, more than anything that happens on the wedding day. I may be working with a team, but the bouquet is a piece of our work that will appear in all of her photos, so call me OCD, I like to do it my way.
I was so pleased to hear that Eliza loved hers when I presented her on the morning at Maya Resort in Sanur. And I can see why. It matches her gown, and all the setups she picked; the subtle make up, and the decision to let go of her hair – it was all about the planned casual vibe. We may have met through a Wedding Stylist, but if we have met directly before, I’m sure she’s a fun person to plan the wedding with.
Thanks Kira of Hitchd Bali for styling this event. You did a wonderful job picking and selecting a look for Eliza and Michael.
Also to Adi of AXIOO , it’s always a joy to work with you and the team.
