Things I’ve Learned from the Flowers

If I’m ever to fall apart, may I be granted the exquisite grace of falling apart with the dignity of a peony.

Brad & Jax Bush Wedding

Jax and Brad are authentic and true. I love the way this wedding was about the two of them beginning their marriage, about celebrating the incredible bush that they both love, about their family and friends, and about the genuine love they have for one …

Old World Glamour

An ode to romance and old world glamour. Candle light, champagne, smokey eyes and a deep jade back drop. Heavy late afternoon Durban heat, reminiscent of New Orleans in late Summer. You can almost hear the moody blues piano crying her haunting melody through the …

Flower Girl Memories

I remember the first time I was a part of a bridal party as a little girl. It was my Aunt’s wedding, being held in the family garden, and my sister and I were flower girls. Our youngest sister was a newborn, but I remember …

I love my clients!

Sometimes you get to work with a couple who touch your hearts in a way that you can’t fully put into words. Gen and James were one of these. Gen, your words are elegant, generous, kind and gentle, just as you are. Thank you so …

Adore’s Guideline to Foraging

I’m an avid forager because you can find delicious textures and flora that don’t grow in perfectly straight lines when they’ve been shaped unhindered by nature. It adds a whole new dimension of movement and interest to a design when you get to work with …

Adore’s Design Philosophy

A few weeks ago I was asked a question that made me pause for thought. How do you make your flowers different to everyone else’s? This is a part of my answer. I think unique style is something that develops over time, with experience, and …

Dom is a gentle, humble, graceful and beautiful soul. Tyrone absolutely adores her. This is the culmination of their love story to this point, exquisitely captured by Andy & Szerdi, masters of visual story telling. Dom, you are so beautiful, inside and out. It sounds …

Kenzan: Foam Free Floral Meditation

Pregnant no longer! Yesterday our sweet son Harry Keir Hall arrived unexpectedly! 34 and a bit weeks old, 3 kg’s and 53cm long. We are completely smitten. Thank you so very much to every single one of you who has sent messages, prayer and love …

Flower Meditation: Intentional Design

A study of mindful, intentional design with Casey Pratt in studio this morning … the combination of film and flowers makes my heart sing! I’m excited to see how the end result turns out. I think it’s easy to sometimes forget why we do what we …
