Sweet Asylum,
A sanctuary for floral expression 


A little insight into myself and Sweet Asylum's vision.


I initially started my training in floristry in 2011 and it's been a part of my life ever since. Creativity and expression is something I've always loved about floral designs. Since 2011 I've been fortunate to work with a variety of florist specialists in the commercial, boutique and events sides of the industry. Each experience teaching me beautiful, unique & artistic styles to apply to my craft.


I've also had the opportunity to work in the events industry, styling venues for any occasion big or small. Sweet Asylum combines my love for floristry and events where I am able to bring your dream floral designs to life whether it's a custom dried arrangement or flowers for an entire wedding. 

Through floristry I endevaour to deliver more than just flowers that look beautiful, I wish to create floral designs that have an impact, deliver strong feelings of emotion, a smile or tears. I like to think we are all connected by nature, and by bring flowers into our environment or sharing them as a gift, we express feeling and personality. I love to help others by bring their visions to life, which is ultimately what Sweet Asylum is all about.
