OUR CLEMENTINE MUMMY'S- KEELY & RIVER

Keely and Riv are one of our fave duo's for a few reasons- Keely's dry sense of humour, Riv's sweet but cheeky nature, the fact that when Riv first learnt to walk he would try to help us sweep the shop (such a champ!) and Keely's hilarious insta feed, which is full of RIv's adventures and Keely's hilarious commentary.

Keely loves hydrangea, but as its not readily available at this time of the year (insert sad face!) our pick for her is the Queen Mumma- soft and pretty with a splash of girly colour!

River HIGHLY recommends adding a Bundle of Joy to blooms for your Mumma, as it includes his fave Raspberry and Coconut Winnow Chocolates!

OUR CLEMENTINE MUMMY'S- MERRYN & ELI

Merryn quickly became a very good friend of Clementine when she came to an appointment for her wedding flowers and said we could do WHATEVER we wanted!! She then followed this up with telling us all about her love of true crime podcasts, she bought her cat Toby in to visit the shop (which was the best day of Ash's life), and then gave birth to the most gorgeous, happy little boy we have ever met! Eli's fave hobbies include chasing grabbing flowers and trying to put them in his mouth, as you will see from the images below!

Merryn loves anything vibrant and cool, so our pick for her is the Hello Mumma!  Hot pink blooms mixed with tropical leaves, a gorgeous orchid and a splash of rose gold!

Eli recommends grabbing one for your Mumma before we reach capacity!

Our Clementine Mummy's- Katerina & Ella

We have known Kat since she came into our original little shop, heavily pregnant, and ordered a flower crown for her baby shower. After the baby shower, little Ella came along and they have quickly become one of our fave duo's to visit us instore!

Kat's go to flower look is white, crisp and fresh, so our pick for her is the Classic Mumma! All white, with fragrant stock, classic disbuds, fluffy cotton and a splash of rose gold.

Ella's pick for Mum are delicious raspberry and coconut  Winnow Chocolates.. perfect to add some extra sweetness to your blooms!

I got it from my Mumma!

We love and adore our Mums, we love and admire our friends who are Mums and we love that this week we get to celebrate them is a HUGE way! All this week we are going to share pics of some of our fave Mums, who were generous enough to hang out with us a few weeks ago and shoot our Mothers Day campaign!

And in case you were wondering... this is what it looks like when you leave a florist with no kids herself in charge of SIX children while their Mums star in a photo shoot... see the panic in Ash's eyes! Thank goodness for good Mumma's and the great kiddos!

MEET THE CLEMENTINES...ELIZA!

Our super sweet, incredibly friendly Eliza is not just the name at the other end of the email for our brides. Eliza runs our wedding admin alongside Kaitlin, and when she isn't piecing together the details of your dream wedding, she can often be found out on setups, making sure that those details have been bought to life. Eliza is currently studying event management, and is a big part of of some exciting upcoming plans at CPHQ. She also once met Leo DiCaprio at Coachella, has more instagram followers than we do, and lived in LA for a while, so we like to make her tell us fabulous stories and love vicariously through them... and because she is so darn sweet she totally puts up with us and our ridiculous questions... we love her!

Its like rain (ah ainnnnnnnnnnnnnn)...

Most of our couples now choose to have outdoor ceremonies, which is a brilliant choice on a sunny Spring day BUT when those clouds roll over and there is no plan B, it can be a very stressful situation, and even more so when suddenly the heavens open and there is nothing that you can do! Bendooley Estate, which is one of our fave venues, have a gorgeous undercover ceremony alternative, but our Clementine couple Sarah and David decided to brave the clouds and went for the original outdoor alternative. They got through most of their ceremony before the heavens opened but with an army of white umbrellas on hand and vibrant blooms to offset the grey sky, everything worked out beautifully and captured expertly by Jimmy Raper
