WINNER BRIDES CHOICE 2020 & 2021 and FINALIST AUSTRALIAN WEDDING AWARDS

Specialising in nature-inspired loose and whimsical florals and design, beautiful tablescapes and ceremony set ups, we can help you create the look and feel you are going for.  Whether you are thinking of a rustic country vibe or amped up elegance, our florals and styling is designed for you.  

Sharon's approach…

"My approach would be the same for any client that I work with, whether it be country, modern or contemporary, I always style to suit your vision and the  surroundings, always considering the space and what’s already in place.  Taking on a less is more and complimentary approach by adding elements and statement pieces that really evelate the space, I can work with you to create that WOW look and feel you really want!  I am very tabslescape driven and love how a design with different elements that compliment each other can really create the most amazing memories for you and your guests.


We offer a range of florals from fresh, dried, preserved and artificial elements through to hire and décor items including a range of arbours, both gold and black frames, signature hanging installations and beautiful elements to create the most gorgeous tablescapes.   Whether you are looking for draping and linens with tapered candles and soft florals or are wanting to bring the colour and bling, head designer Sharon can help you achieve the look you are after!


 

Offering both video, in-studio and mobile consultation services, it gives us the opportunity to meet our clients face to face to explore their vision and offer recommendations whilst providing our clients with a more flexible approach.  Our in-studio option is invaluable to our clients experience as it offers the opportunity to be more hands on, by showing examples of our work and flower and decor options to suit.  Our video consultations are mostly used for our introductory meets or for our further afield, regional and interstate clients and our mobile option, is available on request

 

“Sharon was a God send!! It’s like she plucked the vision right out of my head and made it come to life. Having Sharon on board made our lives so much easier and she was a joy to work with, she styled our ceremony and reception and remained attentive and enthusiastic through the entire journey. I can’t recommend Driftwood Blue floral events enough.” - Emma

Questions and Answers

How much do Wedding Flowers generally cost?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

This is one of the most common questions I get asked as a Wedding floral designer and one that really needs some explanation.  After all, for most of you it’s your first time exploring the world of Wedding flowers and most just don’t know where to begin to understand how much it costs, or in fact what you are getting for your money. 

Wedding Flowers set the look and feel for your Wedding with their softness, texture and colour injection, without flowers things can look fairly ordinary.  Combine these with other elements like lighting and linens, metallics or glassware and you have something sensational! 

I have a great blog post about this topic and you can grab it here

www.driftwoodbluefloralevents.com.au/what-can-i-expect-to-pay-for-my-wedding-flowers/

Wedding flowers are not the same as just buying flowers from a standard florist or even just picking up a bunch of flowers from a store. There is so much more to it than this and once you understand why this is the case you will better understand why they generally cost quite a bit more. 

You'll find out the general cost of not just your bridal florals but table centrepieces, arbour florals, bridal table arrangements, hanging installations and much more! Helping you to better budget for your Wedding and aim for about 10% of your overall Wedding budget is generally a good estimate!

I've just got engaged, what now?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

For most of newly engaged couples, this is an exciting time in their lives! 

When the excitement has died down it generally turns into being a little daunting, so many seek out your friends advice, your colleagues, your mum, anyone who’s been there before…and that’s totally normal. 

You will get a ton of information, some great and not so great stories about experiences and some good and no so good advice. You will also seek out information on the Internet, researching Pinterest images to find your style, go to Bridal Expo's and start looking into ideas.  Which are all great things to do too but can also becoming overwhelming too!

I’ve been there and it’s an exciting and challenging task and depending on how you like to do things and how involved you like to be, these tips below should help most of you get started and off on the right track!

1. Create a new email address for all things Weddings - so you don't miss a thing!

2. Be Flexible with your date - consider a mid week date especially if you are on a budget and with dates generally quite tight since COVID postponements, try and be a little flexible

3. Set up your own Wedding Pinterest Board - so you can collect all the images in one place to gather your ideas and inspiraiton

4. Create a list of Vendors or Suppliers for your MUST HAVE items - do your research, ask friends and family who they recommend and then make contact and start the conversation. Find out what they do for you beyond what they provide on the day.  Work out what's important to you! 

5. Plan together - Find out how your partner wants to be involved and go from there and think of ways to involve them if they are unsure.  Share the load so it doesn't get overwhelming!

What is your style and how do you design?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

 

I have always loved creating designs that reflect natural aspects whilst combining this with the elegance and softness of soft florals, fabrics and metallic elements like gold, silver, and iron and complimenting the natural surrounds and buildings or your venue space.  By ensuring consideration of these aspects, I take a holistic approach to your styling and design to ensure seamless integration to my overall styling. I have available a range of hire décor to suit and if I don’t have what you are looking for, I can source whatever you need!  By working with local quality and trusted suppliers in the region, there is never any need to spend time searching on your own.  



My ultimate passion is to create styling that is truly complimentary to the space.  Such as combining rustic country elements with amped up elegance, this Country Chic style is perfect for a venue or space with natural surrounds where you’d like to create a relaxed and beautiful feel and ambience. My approach would be the same for any space I work in, whether it be modern or contemporary, such as a city venue or space, I always style to suit the surroundings and what’s already in place. Taking on the less is more approach and by adding in complimentary elements and statement pieces, we can work with you to create that WOW look and feel for your Wedding Day!

What is your process?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

Being located in the outer area of North of Brisbane, we are only a short 45minute drive to either

the city, Hinterland and most Sunshine Coast regions so we are based in a fabulous spot for most gorgeous venues that we work with in our region.   We also have many options to suit our clients!

 

I offer both a mobile consultative service and a studio space by appointment, whereby we can work through your design concept together and you are able to be involved as much or as little as you’d like. Initial consultations are usually by video appointment, with 1 hour design sessions and final consultations face to face included as part of my inclusive services.   

How Does it work?

Whether you are looking for just bridal party bouquets and pieces, ceremony set ups and styling, or

full reception styling design, my focus is always on what you need and your vision for your Wedding Day!

I understand that searching for a floral stylist that you can trust and can meet your budget is important and

can be difficult, so I take the time to talk to you about what you are looking to achieve which helps me better understand your vision for your Wedding Day! I offer varying levels of package options too which also helps me to achieve your vision and all within budget!

 

It’s all pretty simple really! 

We chat and meet, you book and secure my services for your date, we design together, I provide ongoing support and then I create and delivery on your Wedding Day!

We service and deliver from Brisbane, Coastal, Hinterland and Sunshine Coast regions!

(if delivery is outside the Brisbane metro region a small additional delivery fee is charged)

Payment plans and options are also available! (Minimum booking is $600)

I can’t wait to meet you and chat all about your Wedding Day!

Sharon was professional, engaged and personable. We used her business for florals and event styling. The options I presented were converted into reality at reasonable and fair pricing. I would highly recommend Driftwood Blue for your wedding

18 Oct 2020

Simply put … Sharon is AMAZING and highly recommended!!! Sharon helped with our floral arrangements and event styling for our wedding on 18th October 2020. Although it was an intimate event of close family, she went over and above to make our day special. Sharon was great at communicating, extremely easy to work with and even worked with our cake vendor on the floral topper for the cake. Everything came together beautifully on the day and we have had so many people comment on Sharon’s arrangement. It was STUNNING!

10 Oct 2020

Our wedding on the 10.10.2020 on a private property set up was nothing short of amazing! Sharon did the most amazing job and truly went above and beyond to make sure that everything down to the finer details was perfect floral arrangements, styling, set up and more. Every single guests commented on how amazing the set up looked! Not only did she do all that she also did my on the day co-ordination and had a COVID Safe Plan in place for the event, she made the whole process seamless and that while I was getting ready I didn't have to worry about a thing! Sharon made planning a breeze even with COVID messing with my original plan for a venue, 3 months out I decided to cancel and do a marquee set up and Sharon was my calmness in a very stressful time, if I was unsure, worried or just freaking out she was always there to answer any questions or reassure me that my day will be magical! All I can say is Sharon THANK YOU for everything, you made our day more magical then we could of ever imagined! Your passion and talent for what you give to you clients is simply amazing!

Sharon created my halloween wedding flower vision perfectly. Everyone commented on how amazing the florals looked. I ended up getting them dried and framed as they were so lovely.

2 Oct 2020

Sharon provided our floral arrangements for our wedding on 02/10/2020. What I most loved about the process with Sharon is that she gave different options to suit what we wanted to spend. We went with a mix of fresh and artificial table arrangement and fresh flowers for our wedding parties. The other amazing part was her ability to be flexible. With a wedding cancelled due to covid we moved our date with no hassle and changed a lot of our flowers choices a few week prior. We were so happy with the final result it was everything we asked for.

18 Jul 2020

31 Aug 2019
