Wild and free: Victoria Florists

Big, beautiful, wild, loose and free, is how Victoria Florists describes the bridal bouquets of now.


“Dried and silk flowers woven with fresh blooms are spot on trend,” says owner Leanne Lovell. A bouquet of a fresh white king protea, silk hydrangeas and dried wild flowers springs to mind.

“It’s very natural now, with autumnal, muted palettes of nature. Champagne, taupe, cinnamon and cream with a trail of sheer linen. We’re doing wrist corsages for the mother of the bride, and trailing greenery with a few flowers on the tables.”

Victoria Florists adapts to the season for value for money, from an absolutely beautiful display.

“Bring along your Pinterest or Instagram dreams for our innovative team to create from. We have 100 years’ experience between us!”

Stunning bridal bouquets: Victoria Florists

When Leanne Lovell of Victoria Florist began her floristry career 35 years ago, dried flowers were all the rage and now they’re back, mixing it up with fresh flowers and looking lovelier than ever!


“The differing textures and fabulous colour variations add another dimension of quality to the bouquet that’s simply stunning,” Leanne says.

Popular with brides are hydrangea, statice, nigella, gypsophila and limonium, while dried grasses, like bunny tails, wheat and yarrow, contrast beautifully with roses, freesias and proteas.

Leanne recommends going onto the new Victoria Florist website to check out the dried flowers and foliage available, or call and chat with the experienced and lovely team about any bridal bouquet requirements.

Thrilled to be back in action again, Leanne has this to say to her supportive, loyal clientele: “A mighty big thank you, everyone!”

Beautiful blooms: Victoria Florists

If we think about it, flowers are the one constant in all of our lives. Flowers are given to celebrate our birth, our birthdays, engagements, weddings and anniversaries; flowers are presented upon our retirement, or as a thank you gift, and flowers are given when we die.



Leanne Lovell of Victoria Florists has had a love affair with flowers all her life, and of her many years working in the floristry business, she says that it’s in the creating of funeral tributes she’s at her happiest.

“Death is part of life; there’s no escaping that. But every life – no matter how short or long – is a life to be commemorated and honoured. Every tribute we make is composed with so much thought and care for that unique individual, and equally for the grieving family and friends.”

Compassion has always been Leanne’s first and foremost priority, and in this fragrant, tranquil oasis, there’s plenty going around. Sometimes, all you need is a wander amongst beautiful blooms and a little conversation with caring hearts to find what you’re looking for.

“My team are all very experienced florists, but like me, when they finish work each day, they go home to real families too. They’ve all experienced the lows, highs, joys and sorrows of life. And that is what we bring to every tribute – our understanding of your pain and loss, but most importantly, we bring our love.”
