Name: Tricia Bryan
Job: Senior Florist at Pick a Posie
Location: Horsham, Victoria
Guilty pleasure: Coffee (an essential) and cake (completely guilty).
Colour inspiration: I tend to be influenced by the seasons, only some flowers are in bloom all year. I like to make the most of what each season has on offer.
Number of years in the industry: I have been working in the Wimmera region as a florist for over 26 years.
What qualifications do you have? I graduated from Box Hill Technical College as a qualified florist after completing a 4 year apprenticeship.
What do you love about weddings? I love being involved with and seeing a bride’s style and vision of her wedding come to life.
How many weddings have you been involved in? Far too many to count!
What advice would you give to couples planning their big day? I find that every wedding benefits from an initial consultation with a florist before making floral choices. This is a time to discuss styling, themes and to discuss seasonal availability of your preferred blooms. Flowers play such an important role on your wedding day, they will be in your lasting memories and photographs for years to come.
What’s your favourite kind of wedding to do? I love and adore all weddings. Each and every wedding is so special, they are simply a joy to be a part of.
Why are weddings so important to you? I love to use my skills to create beautiful floral pieces that are reflective of the couple’s style on their wedding day. Flowers do not last forever but they will be in your lasting memories and photographs for years to come.
What is your dream wedding? It would be an intimate gathering of my closest friends and family, on a spring day, filled with bright native blooms and plenty of laughs.
Why do you think it’s so important to use professional businesses? Using a professional business means that you will receive the correct advice. To get the most out of your wedding flowers they require the correct preparation and care. Using a professional florist will ensure that your blooms are looking their best on your wedding day.
Tell us a little about your business. Pick a Posie is a newly established floral and gift ware studio were Donna (my sister) and I collaborate to offer a fantastic floral service.
Do you travel across Victoria? On a day-to-day basis we service the Wimmera and surrounding areas. We are yet to venture outside of this region but we are open to the idea, if it is possible we will do it.
Do you accommodate for varieties in budgets? Yes we do, there is no wedding too big or small, we like to make the best of all budgets.
Do you cater to other events besides weddings?
We work on corporate accounts, events, all occasions and of course weddings!
