Q & A with Lorna-Jayne
What inspired you to offer bridal flower services?
I’ve always loved weddings; I’ve always thought that there was something magical about them and I loved having a part in them. I started off making standard hand bouquets and sitting arrangements and my first bridal bouquet was quite random, the bride had forgotten to order a bouquet for herself so I quickly offered to put one together for her and I surprised myself & enjoyed myself more than I thought I would. Seeing how happy the bride looked when she saw her bouquet and how great she looked walking down that aisle inspired me to venture into providing floral pieces not only for the bride, but for all her floral needs from flower girl baskets all the way to table centrepieces etc.
Where do you get your floral inspiration from?
I was raised by a florist and I’d like to think she’s the best florist that has ever lived.
She inspired me to get into floristry & until today I still get floral inspiration from her. I consult her about almost anything to do with “floral & events”, and she continues to be my inspiration and my biggest supporter.
What would be some floral suggestions for the different times of the year that brides can choose from?
We have a lot of tropical flowers that are in bloom all year, so the bride has a lot of options.
A bride can choose from a cascading white orchid bouquet (I’ve never had a problem ordering orchids all throughout the year), to a round or a cascading frangipani bouquet.
We have tropical bridal bouquets with a mixture of wild orchids, anthuriums, gingers etc. Most if not all our tropical flowers are available all year round, the bride just needs to decide on their colour preferences and I can assist by suggesting which flowers will best suit her event.
What is your current most requested floral design?
Most of my brides request the cascading white orchid bridal bouquet, which is one of my deluxe bouquets.
Do you offer packages or are they all customized?
We customise everything for the bride/groom.
Top tips for Bride and Grooms in regards to their flower preference or design?
I would suggest they don’t overdo it, keep it simple. The flowers are meant to compliment your whole look and not overpower your look completely.
Don’t get too caught up with trends, it’s your day. You can have whatever you like, keeping in mind that whatever you’ve chosen based on pictures off Pinterest or off Google, it will be executed using tropical flowers that’s available in Fiji.
