Joyful Creators

“TRUE HAPPINESS COMES FROM THE JOY OF DEEDS WELL DONE, THE ZEST OF CREATING THINGS NEW.”—ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPERY

When you hand a team of leading creatives a bright pastel palette and tell them to “have fun”, you know the results are going to be sensational. What culminated from our creative collaboration with these wedding industry faves is this adorable scene that oozes playfulness and joy. It is emblematic of the sweet happiness that couples share on the day they become husband and wife.

VANESSA PARTRIDGE + CARIS HAUGHAN: PRUNELLA

We always find joy in our creative process and appreciate the fact that no two days are the same: one day we could be styling spaces, and others we could be working on the floral arrangements. We have the opportunity to meet other likeminded creatives and working with flowers means that we really embrace the change in the seasons. But best of all, we absolutely love working together with our team and having lots of laughs.

Our love of flowers naturally brought us here into this industry. We love weddings because the occasion allows us to deliver some of our most beautiful and creative work. At Prunella we see flowers as a vehicle for communicating a wonderful sense of occasion, love, joy and abundance. Our goal is for our couples and their guests to really experience this on their wedding day.

GINA TUBB: MISS LADYBIRD CAKES

The joys behind my work are the different ways I get to use my creativity, from playing with beautiful flowers to experimenting with colours and flavours. I feel a constant need to be creating things! Luckily I have the perfect job that allows me to do this. I’m a sucker for a good wedding—I just love the emotion attached to wedding days! Oh gosh, I cry at every wedding I go to! My love language has always been expressed through the food I create and in some way working in the wedding industry is an extension of that love.

One of the most common phrases clients say to me in preparation for their wedding cake is, “I don’t mind what it looks like as long as it tastes good!” I love making cakes that look visually appealing (and represent the uniqueness of the couple) without compromising on taste. After all, I want all of my clients to enjoy every part of their special day!

SARAH HANKINSON: SANTIAGO SUNBIRD

I love that I get to create imagery that brings a touch of beauty to the world. It’s also quite a meditative process using watercolour and creating artworks with this beautiful medium. Weddings are such fun occasions and I feel lucky to be a part of the special day with our clients. The invitation is the first insight guests get of the day so I’m fortunate to help set the tone for the look and feel of the wedding. I remember my move to the wedding industry happened quite organically when my sister and business partner, Bree, and I were commissioned to create a few wedding stationery suites and we realised our work really lends itself to this industry. We currently work in a co-working space called The Windsor Workshop surrounded by other creatives which is so inspiring.
