When Leanne Lovell of Victoria Florist began her floristry career 35 years ago, dried flowers were all the rage and now they’re back, mixing it up with fresh flowers and looking lovelier than ever!
“The differing textures and fabulous colour variations add another dimension of quality to the bouquet that’s simply stunning,” Leanne says.
Popular with brides are hydrangea, statice, nigella, gypsophila and limonium, while dried grasses, like bunny tails, wheat and yarrow, contrast beautifully with roses, freesias and proteas.
Leanne recommends going onto the new Victoria Florist website to check out the dried flowers and foliage available, or call and chat with the experienced and lovely team about any bridal bouquet requirements.
Thrilled to be back in action again, Leanne has this to say to her supportive, loyal clientele: “A mighty big thank you, everyone!”
