Mable + Grace


“We believe in being honest, loving, and fair”— it’s these values that serve as the essence of Mable and Grace, a business offering dedicated floral work, styling and event management services. They embrace a bespoke and quirky design style after rebranding from Essence Flowers three years ago, with owner Naandi at the forefront of driving their overall aesthetic.

With a background in event management and business, Naandi fell into floral work at the age of 18, and never looked back. “To be completely honest, when I got in to floristry it was a gap year job and I would have never seen myself going down the floristry path. In fact, I don’t think I had ever really thought about floristry. However, I was lucky enough to get a job with my beautiful mentor and teacher Naomi when she had Essence Flowers in the centre of Busselton. I moved away the following year and was studying business and law, majoring in event management so I suppose I was always destined to start my own business.”

The name change was sparked by Naandi’s desire to make this new investment her own, and was chosen as a tribute to her grandmothers, both of whom played pivotal roles throughout her childhood. “My grandmother on my father’s side was named Mabel (spelt differently to our spelling). Funnily enough, she hated her name, but I love it! Grace is my middle name and the middle name of my grandmother on my mum’s side, and also the middle name of one of my aunties who I am close with. I wanted something that reflected me and my family is a huge part of who I am.”

Mable and Grace has a committed team of artisans under its belt, all dedicated to cultivating meticulous weddings that couples will remember for years to come. They get to know clients on a personal level, and form relationships with brides and grooms so that all of their styling dreams are realised.

“I have a seriously amazing team! Without them, I couldn’t do what I do. Chrystal, Louise and Tamar are all amazing florists and we each bring our own personal styles and points of strength to the team. For instance, I hate fiddly things like buttonholes, but Tamar is a guru at them. Chrystal has an absolute flair for bouquets and Louise seems to be able to do everything, and is super great with setup!” says Naandi.

They all pride themselves on their ability to be unique and aren’t afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to styling. “We embrace any opportunity to explore new and alternative wedding styles and themes and – furthermore – welcome (and rise to!) any challenges to tailor our creations to couples’ personal tastes and visions,” explains Naandi. With an eco-friendly, raw and natural approach to design, Mable and Grace are honoured to assist in making clients’ weddings an intimate and personal affair full of love, laughter and happiness.
