Who are you, what you do and who you serve?

My name is Ina, and I am the owner of The Prairie Creative Floral Studio. With over two decades of hands-on experience, I bring a wealth of floral expertise to every arrangement. I hold a distinguished graduation certificate from a three-year Florist School.


What services do you offer?

I specialize in the art of floral design for weddings and events, taking immense joy in bringing to life the unique visions of each couple. I thrive on the challenges presented by couples and wedding planners, embracing the opportunity to create distinctive and innovative designs that truly stand out.

How did you get started in the wedding industry, and what inspired you to become a florist?

My passion for flowers took a transformative turn when we moved from Germany, leading me to volunteer in a flower shop. The experience captivated me, prompting a decision to pursue a three-year apprenticeship to become a skilled florist. The journey was challenging, yet my commitment prevailed, culminating in my graduation with excellence.


What do you enjoy most about working in the wedding industry and serving couples on their special day?

The wedding industry is a joy-filled realm, and I revel in witnessing the excitement couples exude as they plan their special day. It is enchanting to be a part of their dreams, not just for the wedding itself, but for their shared future. The sparkle in their eyes on the wedding day is the most rewarding part of my journey in this delightful industry.

What do you believe is the most important consideration when couples are choosing a florist?

I consistently emphasize to couples that their wedding day is uniquely theirs—no one else's. The key is finding a florist with whom they feel entirely comfortable and can trust implicitly. It's crucial to assess whether the florist aligns with their design style, possesses the creativity and artistic flair to bring their vision to life, and, equally importantly, demonstrates exceptional customer-service skills. A harmonious connection with their florist ensures a seamless and enjoyable journey toward creating the wedding of their dreams.


What is the ideal timeline for couples to book your services in advance of their wedding day?

Flexibility is my forte when it comes to timelines. Having experience working with weddings planned meticulously over three years in advance to those organized within a week, my approach is adaptable. The availability of the day and the unique needs and desires of each couple guide the timeline, ensuring a personalized and stress-free experience, regardless of the planning horizon.


What is the best piece of advice you would offer to couples planning their wedding?

Savor the moments and leave the stress behind! Consider hiring a wedding planner and entrust in your chosen vendors. When it comes to your wedding, the most memorable flowers are undoubtedly in the bride's bouquet. It's a lasting symbol, so resist the urge to cut costs in this area—invest in a bouquet that will be remembered forever.


Can you share your favorite wedding trend or design idea that you're currently excited about?

Going bold with your wedding decor! lavish sofas, grand arches, and vibrant aisle and table arrangements bursting with flowers. Opting for more blooms, less greens, and adding a unique touch with pocket boutonnieres. A celebration of vivid colours and abundant blooms, makes a stylish statement without overwhelming words.

How do you stand out?

I go the extra mile for my couples, leveraging my years of experience and keen eye for balance, colour, and harmony to craft stunning arrangements. Known for being open and positively inclined, I wholeheartedly believe in the goodness of my couples' hearts. It's not just about creating beautiful designs; it's about fostering a positive and collaborative experience that reflects the warmth and love of each unique couple.
