All you need is love and … some wisdom from a wedding professional.
Now, I know a lot about weddings, but not everything, so “Tradie Tuesday”is a series of interviews with wedding professionals, who will share their stories and wedding wisdom.
Twigs N Twine
Business Name: Twigs N Twine
A bit about yourself and your business: My name is Ayla. I have a gorgeous husband and 2 fur babies. We have recently moved back from Auckland to our home town of Dunedin. Twigs N Twine evolved through word of mouth, starting it’s journey from prettying up my office to flower bombing “Morning Magpie” cafe. After being inspired in Melbourne and working in a very sterile environment, (the Prison system) I realised the need to have living creations around me and began flowering everything!!
Our new store aims to create a magical space to gather and create. We host events such as bridal showers and also have various flower workshops on offer. With the main feature being a long table set amongst candles and flowers to come and chat, chill and recharge your inner flower child!
We source unique blooms to create beautiful artworks for all occasions and especially those Mondays!! We also do a free wedding consult prior to your big day to finalise the specifics.
The latest addition to our packages is “The Proposal” So should your loved one need some creative inspiration/flowers for the big question/a space or assistance to set the scene, they can book in for a consult. The consult includes a ‘love them’ bouquet and action plan.
What do you love about your job? The best part about blooms, would have to be the amazing amount of people I have met!
What do you do in your spare time? HaHa, actually this is my hobby! I also love spending time with friends, family, exploring, sipping coffee, travelling, beaching, getting lost in our MASSIVE garden, and most of all walking with the pups.
What one thing do you wish that every wedding couple knew? That whatever their vision is to GO FOR IT and to do what they want to do!
Any wedding trends you love? I love flower crowns!
What piece of advice would you give to a couple planning their wedding: To not let others opinions sway you, and to do whatever is YOU. Don’t get caught up in the details, and make it fun.
One insider tip or trick to pass on: Take time out together on the day. Factor it into your schedule.
We would so love to create something amazing for your magical day, so pop by, or give us a call to lock in your beautiful blooms.
