About Bloodwood Botanica
Drawing inspiration from nature & art, they use sculptural floral design to create a reflection of your relationship, spoken in the language of the seasons best blooms.
Emilia hand selects each flower used, sourcing direct from local growers where possible, and ensures each and every stem is at its perfect angle on installation
Behind The Brand
What was the spark for Bloodwood Botanica? Where did your story begin?
The initial inspiration was watching nature trying to take back the city. Ferns popping out of cracks in train station walls, “weeds” climbing up forgotten rusted pipes. Basically the unbelievable beauty in the silhouette of a single seemingly out of place stem that it seemed so many people wouldn’t even notice.
Where do you draw your creative inspiration from?
It changes from design to design but my imagination plays kind of short films in my head. Little snippets one after the other that might be the based on the proposal story the couple have shared, or a fairy tale, or sometimes a place. It’s hard to explain but its kind of like when you hear a song and you imagine what the film clip might be in your mind. There are so many things that are being soaked into our mind to inspire us, be it songs, architecture, fashion, spaces etc. It’s hard to pin point just one thing as it is made up of so many hints of little things.
Once the flowers are with me, the big light comes from them. I care so deeply about every stem and just want to do them justice.
What advice do you have brides when choosing their wedding flowers?
Find someone who really cares and who’s aesthetic you love.
What style of floristry and flowers are you loving at the moment?
The etherial and intricacy. At the moment I’m really gravitating towards clouds of gypsophila with my ever favourite caladium leaves, pitcher plants and pretty much every orchid varietal.
