Tell us a little about your friendship and how you became ‘Peony & Weasel Flower Co! What do you both bring to the collaboration?
Kirsten: Brooke and I have known of each other through mutual friends for over 20 years. Our working career started with previous employment of which we worked together for four years. We work so well together and our style is so similar, even we can’t tell sometimes who made it.
What has been your favourite ‘wedding moment’ so far on your journey as ‘Peony & Weasel Flower Co’?
K: Before gay marriage was legalised, we had a beautiful couple married in the Otways. The girls both carried bouquets that were very personally chosen. On seeing the bouquets, their words were “ they are absolutely incredible, now this makes it feel real” and burst into tears, which inturn made us cry. It was a really intense moving moment.
What has been your favourite wedding trend when it comes to flowers in recent times?
Brooke: Dark berry and moody tones
Can you give us a forecast of a floral trend for 2019?
K: Still unstructured, more use of colour. And if going by Pantone, there’s going to be a good use of the colour violet.
What is one question you wish your brides would ask?
K: We believe flowers compliment the overall look and styling of a wedding, and we feel a lot of people may not realise how much flowers cost, so let us know your budget up front.
Anything new that you guys are offering that you would like to share?
K: The trend for reception tables are no glass ware and juxtapositioned arrangements that are really flower heavy. Which we love creating!!!
