MORE ABOUT ME

How did you get started in weddings?
Bright and Beautiful, Flowers & Decor started off as a small business eight years ago. It happened at a time in my life when I was able to follow my dreams, being able to relax and enjoy doing something I loved. I often tell people that, as I have no daughters of my own, and will therefore never have the chance of being the mother of the bride, I make all my prospective brides my adopted daughters for a short while. It is always an emotional moment seeing my girls in their wedding dresses, glowing and looking totally gorgeous as they are about to walk down the aisle.
I was lucky enough to be trained by Joan Pare (Constantia School of Floristry) who was a legend back in the day! Although I did not pursue a career in florisry at that time I always maintained a love and interest in flower arranging and over the years have done several flower courses.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by nature – the seasons bringing us different flowers and foliage, textures and colours. I enjoy travelling which helps me to keep abreast of trends and styles.
Favourite place in South Africa?
Definitely my own home town, Cape Town. A weekend hideaway or day trip would be to Franschhoek.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms?
Sit down together and draw up a comprehensive budget for your wedding. Make a pact to stick to your budget despite temptation. Let your florist/stylist know what your budget is. Be realistic! You should feel comfortable and trust your co-ordinator and/or floral designer. Give them the opportunity to put your ideas together and present a vision for your special day.
