We grow a huge amount of different flowers over the course of a year. Basically everything we can get our hands on and that is remotely suitable to the Adelaide Hills climate. Our farm resembles a giant messy overgrown garden more than a commercial flower farm. You won't find many neat varietal rows, everything is slightly wonky and hotchpotch. But we love it this way. And the bees love it too!
Anna is our head flowersmith and she embraces this wonkyness in her floral design as well, not forcing the elements into our way of thinking and creative process. Floral art for her is a conversation between the botanicals and the human hand. She loves to work with wild elements and wayward stems, embracing imperfections to create truly unique pieces of art.
Our flowers are grown organically, with the help of natural composts, seaweed, worm juice, and other organic fertilisers. The majority of our crops are also field grown – there are no grow lights or heating.
We offer full service floral design for a limited number of weddings each year, as well as an online shop for you to choose some key items from. During the main growing season you are also able to purchase buckets of blooms if you wish to create your own wedding decorations.
We sell our flowers at weekly farmers' markets and from our farm gate shop.
Finest silk ribbon, carefully hand dyed with plant materials grown and foraged from the farm, is available in a range of colours to make your wedding flower experience truly magical.
Congratulations on your engagement! You must be really excited and maybe also a little overwhelmed by all the choices and everything that needs to be organised. Perhaps you've never really thought about floral design until now? Or you're a long time flower lover and want the florals to be an integral part of your celebration?
To help us both find out if we are a good match, here is a note from our head florist, Anna, about how she works:
I work in a natural, wild and sculptural way, incorporating things that you may not have thought of as “florist material”. Colourful designs are always preferred, these can be bold or subtle, but maybe not always conventional in their pairing.
Seasonality is what drives my passion and inspires me. I work exclusively with seasonal, locally grown or foraged botanicals.
We are fortunate enough to live in a relatively mild climate where we can grow flowers year round. I strongly believe that every season has it's highlights, and that what grows together at the same time of year looks most beautiful together in a vase.
I don't think it is good practice to import flowers that are not in season, I believe we appreciate things more when they are not abundant every day of the year.
If you choose me as your wedding florist, I ask you to fully embrace what each season has to offer. Be it the abundance of late spring and early summer, the slow and rich decline of autumn or the (relative!) austerity of winter.
Each of these moods (and many more) can be encapsulated into a design that is specific to your personalities and reflects the time and location of your wedding.
You will get the most out of your florals, if you are happy to allow me some creative freedom and keep an open mind. If you already have a set idea about specific flowers and exact colours, then I may not be the right florist for you, and that's ok!
But if you love my work and want something truly unique for your wedding, please get in touch for a chat about how we can make your vision come to life!
how i work
how to book
Items from our a la carte menu can be ordered through our online shop. These include bouquets, buttonholes and DIY Flowers. We are hoping to add centrepieces within the next few months. Free pick up from the farm is available for all online orders, or additional delivery can be booked upon request.
Our online shop is a wonderful and budget friendly way to have our artfully designed, seasonal blooms as part of your special day. No two bouquets Anna created are ever the same, so you're not getting just a generic bunch of flowers off the shelves, your getting all our passion and love of seasonal flowers wrapped up in a beautiful piece of art.
Still, if you would like something even more special and tailored to your vision, including free form installations to transform your ceremony or reception space, please fill out the form below to enquire about full service floral design.

how much do you charge?
Well. That depends. Artfully designed wedding flowers do come with a price tag, but they are worth it (if we do say so ourselves). We raise many of our flowers from seed ourselves, after scouring international seed catalogues for unusual and new varieties. We plant them and pamper them and look after them until we cut them at their prime, ready for your wedding. We forage through tree lines of our farm and road sides for those special ingredients that make our arrangements unique. We curate a coulour palette, then we hunt for more ingredients, if we're not happy with how the colours sit together. We blend the tones to create harmonious transitions.
Then we do the actual design work, and each piece we create is a work of art. A bridal bouquet takes up to two hours to create, sometimes even longer! There are also a lot (like a LOT!) of flowers in Anna's Bridal Bouquets.
For a guide on what prices to expect for personal flowers, have a look through the items in our shop. Remember that these are for a designer's choice option (with a choice of two overall colour palettes), and if you require a fully bespoke item expect to add about 5-10% to those prices.
Additional charges include delivery, labour, set up, if required.
