OUR STORY

For those of you who haven’t had the chance to meet us, we are the TF team! We love all things flowers and are passionate about crafting beautiful arrangements. Team captains, Sarah & Courtney, have 20 years combined industry experience from shop floristry in Sydney and Melbourne to Wedding and event styling across Geelong & the Surfcoast. Both originate from humble beginnings, gaining knowledge and skills as they excelled in their profession.

 

Sarah’s background in Visual Merchandising and Graphic Design led her to explore other creative professions, eventually landing on Floristry. After completing her studies, she began working at Torquay local, Pearl & Boston. Her love for the industry grew and she found herself drawn to Wedding and Event floristry, establishing @botanicafreshflowers in 2014. Over the past 7 years the BOTANICA brand has flourished setting a new bar for wedding flowers in the region. Sarah’s attention to detail, care for excellence and above all talent has deemed her an artist of the industry! For all the airs and graces, she is a down-to-earth member of the community with a passion for furry friends, a weakness for flaky croissants and a love of the finer things in life!

 

Courtney’s attraction to floristry was a combination of connecting to people and creative expression. Years in hospitality saw her develop wonderful communication skills and a genuine love for people's life stories! A history of dabbling in various artforms, she landed on installation art. Floristry simply seemed to be the right industry for her skill set. Starting out in a shop in Melbourne, her passion and ambition grew taking her to Sydney and beyond! Combining her love of installation art and flowers she ventured into the Wedding industry, where she met fellow florist Sarah. This pairing made way for the Dream Team you see today! Courtney is always up for a gag, an avid Yogi and feels most at home camping in the bush - red wine in hand!
