- IN THE SPOTLIGHT -
q & a with LOCALE FLORA
When did you start your business?
I started my Floral Design business in early 2018!
What made you start your business?
I have always known I wanted to work in a creative field so when I fell into floristry I didn't look back!
Once I broke out of the retail floristry world I started freelancing and then working for myself. I pretty quickly realised that sharing my skills and my passion with my clients during some of their most memorable occasions was something that would not only make me happy but that i would also be succeeding in a career that I love!
Any funny stories or requests from clients?
Nothing too wild yet! So far my clients have all been pretty tame.. although I secretly hope one day I will have a better answer to this question ;)
What do you do in your spare time?
Working in the wedding industry it is often hard to get a weekend off, but when I do I love to spend it trying out new and exciting places to eat or I am off visiting markets down the coast. (The vegan pancakes at Bulli Markets are AMAZING by the way!)
But when I have the time I usually spend a week or so up in Byron Bay visiting my family and soaking up the sun at one of the beaches!
Your favourite place to visit in the Sutherland Shire?
Soo many to choose from! Like they say, the Shire has it all! ;)
I cant really go past Salmon Haul on a hot day for a swim or the Shire Farmers Market for fresh strawberries on a Saturday morning.. but as for eating out I always head to Queen Margherita, Blackwood Pantry or my new favourite breakfast place - Rushi (The parmesan scrambled eggs...yumm!)
What is your best advice for newlyweds?
Not being married myself I cant say I am the best for giving this advice just yet haha! But in terms of what I do know, I would say stay true to yourselves and know what you both want out of your wedding day. You don't always have to follow trends and a little compromise will go a long way when you look back at your special day and you see that it is a true representation of both you and your partner and this new journey you have set out on together!
