The concept of Little Wren Flowers was dreamed up in 2013 by Kamisha Refalo, who wanted to offer Newcastle and its surrounds a bespoke and creative approach to floristry. Now closely affiliated with Crab Apple Vintage, the torch has been passed to florist Lucy Shepherd.
With a love of flowers instilled in her by her mother and grandmother, it wasn’t until her own wedding, that Lucy decided to pursue her passion for flowers professionally. Lucy holds a Certificate III in Floristry, obtained from the Northern Sydney Institute of TAFE NSW, and has had work experience overseas with Blumen Maarsen and Die Blumengärtnerei, Switzerland.
Little Wren Flowers is known for their boho vibe, with bouquets, floral crowns, wreaths, and freeform arrangements made from a mix of foraged, home grown, and bought flowers. No matter the bride or the brief, Lucy loves the collaborative process of wedding and event floristry, and has been inspired by the warmth, creativity and friendship of the broader Newcastle community.
Little Wren Flowers has a deep love for the natural, unaffected beauty of Australian wildflowers and tends to a small garden at the studio. Little Wren Flowers is a sustainable florist, making eco-conscious decisions when sourcing and creating their floral designs.
