I’ve just returned from the most amazing job at a Chateau just outside of Paris working for Amy Humphreys of Flowerjugs. I can’t yet show any pics of this wedding (except a couple little details I posted on Instagram) but wanted share some of her other work with you. And I must thank Deb for the introduction!

The amazingly creative, plant-obsessed Angie of Ode Ceramics and I did a story last month for The Planthunter about the different ways plant and flower people source, care for and arrange plants vs flowers. It was so much fun visiting The Succulent Garden and the flower market together and then shooting it all back at her home studio. Be sure to check it out the article in full here.

Pretty Streets Botanicals is a Brooklyn based floral design studio. They also run a little flower stand at the Bedford Cheese Shop. Owner Kristen Ossmann has her own flower garden and tries to use home grown flowers whenever possible. I love this new movement if florists growing their own or having really direct relationships with small local flower farms.

This past weekend Kinfolk Magazine hosted flower potluck gatherings across the world to celebrate the northern hemisphere’s entry into spring. Despite our autumnal weather Sydney was lucky enough to be included with an event in Chippendale hosted by photographer and designer Luisa Brimble along with floral and botanical stylist Aleksandra Schutz.

Guests were asked to bring an armload of flowers or greenery whether from their backyard, their local florist or the side of the road. Here are the resulting pictures taken by Luisa Brimble for Broadsheet.

The Little Flower School is run by Nicolette Owen and Sarah Ryhanen. Nicolette has her own floral studio Nicolette Camille Floral and Sarah is co-founder of beautiful Brooklyn florist Saipua as well as owner of a flower farm in upstate New York.

They came together in 2008 and now run classes all over the US and most recently did some special classes in Sydney. I was disappointed to learn of the classes after they had already sold out, but got to enjoy something of their visit through the photographs they posted of their trip.

Amy Merrick is a florist and stylist I have long admired.

The way she plays with shape and texture really blows me away and I especially like her use of fruit and berries.

There’s a romanticism to her work and life that is very intriguing.

Check out her blog here.
