My fascination for flowers took hold at a young age. I would wander around our sunny garden in Woodford in the beautiful Blue Mountains and get lost in the beauty of all growing things – from weeds to pumpkins. Our garden remains my inspiration and it fuels my passion daily.

About Me

Hi, I’m Trish

Eco Friendly Floral Artist

My fascination for flowers took hold at a young age. I would wander around our sunny garden in Woodford in the beautiful Blue Mountains and get lost in the beauty of all growing things – from weeds to pumpkins. Our garden remains my inspiration and it fuels my passion daily.

Living and working sustainably it is at the core of who I am and how I work, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Treading lightly on our planet was instilled in me from a young age. My mum, Grace is a stickler for recycling and composting and my Dad, John is a use-it- till-it- completely-shits-itself kinda guy and always considers what alternate use an item can have before binning it. I consider myself an eco-florist. Meaning that I aim to source as locally as possible, use sustainable materials and recycle, compost and up-cycle at every possible moment! It’s a way of life to me, so it just comes naturally.

Exploring creativity was also a strong part of my upbringing. Coming from a family full of artists and musicians, I was always encouraged to explore my creative side. For as long as I can remember I’ve been picking fresh flowers from the garden and dotting them around the house. I’m so incredibly thankful that I’ve been able to turn this passion into my livelihood and it’s still what gets me out of bed (really early on market days!) with a spring in my step. It was no surprise to anyone when I went on to study floristry in 2005 and have worked in the bright and bustling wedding and floristry industries ever since.

Blue Mountains Floral Designs was born in 2012 after moving on from my previous life as a wedding and events planner for a large venue. This experience complements my floral designing career as it gives me the know-how to plan and execute a perfect floral shindig for any wedding no matter the theme or venue.

My style is a balance between unruly and organic with a bohemian twist

I really do love mixing and matching more elegant styles to create a perfect, bespoke look for my brides and grooms. I particularly love intricate wiring of flower crowns and get lost in the jittery excitement of hanging an epic flower installation from the ceiling.

Weddings make me SO happy

There is so much raw and beautiful emotion put into a couples wedding day and I truly adore being a part of each and every one.

I also offer an upcycled flowers service (with your blessings), collecting the leftover wedding florals and re-gifting them to people who need a pick-me-up or a “thank you” for providing important services to our local community and prevent your wedding blooms from going to landfill. I can even donate to a particular church, nursing home or special location of your choice!

I put my heart and creative soul into every piece I design for your wedding and I can’t wait to meet you! Please explore my work, and if you like what you see I really look forward to having a chat and starting out on your floral journey with you.
