Wedding Flowers / Church Flowers

I love doing floral arrangements for brides whom get married at our local church at East Taieri and also floral arrangements for our Sunday services. I learned the art from Mrs Smart from Mosgiel whom had classes from her home at Kinmont many years ago as I wished to learn for my cake decorating which the two go hand in hand.
I am the present flower convenor at East Taieri a position I have held since 1992
check the photos I have done.
