Hi, I'm Bethany!
Click here to learn more about me and the Floral Eden team!
My love of love is what inspires me to be part of the Wedding Industry. I get to be part of piecing together memories that will stay with our couples for a lifetime by decorating their day and photos with exquisite blooms.
I started Floral Eden at the beginning of 2019 with the dream of running my own little business along side my Mother's floristry business. My Mum, Vanessa, has been a florist since she was 15 years old and has raised me to have a lifelong love and respect for flowers.
We came to a decision late 2018 to hand over the weddings and events to me under the name Floral Eden, whilst Vanessa continued to run her well established and successful business Flower Cottage of Adelaide Hills.
Together we work side by side; during the week we create beautiful gift bouquets and deliver them all around the Adelaide Hills, and on weekends we work together to create and set up wedding flowers for our beautiful clients.
Over the months Floral Eden quickly grew to be bigger than I ever expected and I absolutely love that I get to do my dream job!
Where it all began
I’ve grown up in florist shops my whole life. My mother, Vanessa has been a florist since she was 15, and raised me and my siblings surrounded by flowers. I started ‘helping’ Vanessa in her shop when I was very young. Now that I look back I’m sure I was a more of a nuisance than I was a help, but surely it all contributed to where I am now!
I found my true love of weddings in my early teens when Vanessa would ask me to come and help her with set ups. We would travel to the venues together and I would follow her around with a dustpan and broom, cleaning up the inevitable mess that comes with floristry! I eventually got more confident in my own skills and started Tafe straight after I left high school to gain my qualification.
