Adelaide florist Kate Phippard founded The Wild Flower Company in her home of South Australia. She’s passionate about offering gorgeous flower arrangements to showcase nature’s best and put us in harmony with the astonishing artistry of our natural world.
Kate was born in Adelaide and brought up in the iconic suburb of Henley Beach. The salt, the sand and the ever-changing sea are the foundation for her love of nature’s forms, its softness and waves.
She spent several years training with Pollination, one of the leading florists in Edinburgh, Scotland. There, she learnt a newer, free-flowing style which visualises flowers as ‘a gathering’, breathing life. This style includes a greater use of natural foliages and forms. This approach bestows each arrangement with a unique beauty.
Kate’s craft and skills include:
* Market fresh flowers chosen and sent daily
* Wedding bouquets including native wedding flowers
* Flower bouquets for other special occasions and events
* Large-scale flower arrangements for weddings, funerals, and corporate events.
Our junior florist Susan loves being immersed in flower arrangements every day. Her favourite flower is the vibrant yet delicate Stargazer lily. Our driver Kevern is also an integral part of our team. Keep an eye out for him in your area, as he’s in charge of our flower delivery Adelaide wide. His favourite flower is the classic red rose; he’s a romantic at heart.
Here at The Wild Flower Company, we’re passionate about sourcing recycled and eco-friendly materials as often as we can. We look to reduce waste while we make the world a better, brighter place.
