Yvette herself is the creative drive behind her namesake brand and has always been in love with flowers and plants. Growing up she recalls spending countless hours in her grandmother's garden in North Wales, admiring each delicate bloom and savouring the scents and being captivated by their natural beauty.  Growing up she and her mother would spend much time touring famous gardens around the country and still to this day plan their time together based on gardens to visit. Before taking her first flourish into floristry she tried settling into corporate life however, it wasn’t long before she reflected on her love of flowers as a child and wanted to turn this love of everything botanical into a career.

Starting her floristry training in the home counties of England, where she is from, Yvette quickly learnt everything she could from the experienced and nurturing team she was working with. Large country homes, top hat and tails weddings, Royal lunches and all things typically English were regular weekly fixtures in the diary and meant she was able to work on and design many types of floral displays and arrangements.  After moving to New Zealand Yvette began turning couples' wedding flower dreams into reality from her Island Bay home studio. In 2016, Yvette moved into a studio on Tory Street in Wellington's CBD and opened her very own bricks and mortar botanical studio. The beautiful character space was small and always filled with an abundance of seasonal blooms and greenery from towering palms to delicate orchids.

Yvette's studio quickly became a popular destination for those looking to add some florals or greenery to their homes or offices. Her expert eye for design and styling made her arrangements stand out as well as bringing new ideas about working sustainably in the industry. In addition to selling plants and flowers, Yvette also began working alongside city clients event styling, creating stunning floral arrangements for conferences, offices and other special occasions, and of course still making wedding flower dreams come true.Running a small business comes with its challenges, but Yvette has always surrounded herself with the most creative and inspirational team.  Everyone is tirelessly dedicated to tending the plants, carefully selecting the perfect blooms for each arrangement. Today, Yvette's botanical studio is a beloved fixture in Wellington's bustling Tory Street neighbourhood. From the moment you step inside The Studio that now fills a larger space next door to the original one, you can feel the love and care that goes into every detail and the creation of a special experience for all who enter. And while Yvette may be the owner and stylist, it's always the plants and flowers themselves that truly steal the show.
