Hi! I'm Rosie the florist, here's the story of how I avoided life as a lawyer...
Having grown up with a botanical mother (and grandmother), helping them bind bouquets since I was small, it was inevitable I would one day follow in their footsteps. My floral style is drawn from my English heritage, growing up in the countryside where wildflowers and garden roses were abundant, so as a result, my florals don't look stylised or structured but deconstructed, wild and romantic.
The road to flowers didn't run smoothly though - I ditched a very short lived law degree and started a career in fashion and media overseas. Growing tired of the daily grind and working for someone else's dream, in April 2015, Rose Tinted Flowers was created. It started in the garden shed which I soon outgrew, moving to a pop up shop and now our shops in Ponsonby Central and St Kevin's Arcade where we create beautiful bouquets for our lovely customers.
We specialise in creating bespoke florals for weddings, events, installations and special occasions. We also host flower crown and flora workshops, either at our St Kevin's Arcade space or we can come to you.
In my range of bouquets and posies I've created a subscription flower service. Borne off the fact that many of us love having fresh flowers at home and at work but often don't have time to buy them. I believe that flowers are good for the soul which is why I offer this great little service that brings you flowers weekly, fortnightly or monthly in a bouquet or styled arrangement.
Thanks, Rosie x
