Flourish Events is not only an event planner – but an eco-friendly florist and prop hire company – based right here in North Canterbury!

Flourish Events is a North Canterbury-based florist and event planner, with a small flower farm as their base in Oxford. Cassie and her husband Daniel Heath grow as much as they can themselves, and source all other materials locally with an emphasis on sustainability.

Tell us about your business? I’m a florist and event planner. I offer custom packages to suit the needs of each client, whether they are after florals, event management on the day or complete event planning and organisation. We also do event hire.

Alongside my husband (the builder that puts all my ideas in to being), we make our own arches, platters, photo props etc for event hire, using locally-milled macrocarpa. We also have a flower farm on our property which we try to grow as much of our own flowers on.

What’s your mission for every couple who chooses your business? We try to be “organic within reason” with an emphasis on sustainability and a low carbon footprint. I try to dry and reuse or compost as much as possible from my designs, anything we can’t produce on-farm is sourced locally and I try to find eco-friendly alternatives anytime I can. We have a motto: ‘the day of your dreams shouldn’t cost us the earth.’ I think more people are aware of our impact on the earth and would like eco-friendly options.

I also like to really individualise every couples experience and try to work interests or meaningful things into anything I do, whether that’s using part of the brides grandmother’s dress in a bouquet wrap, photos of someone that can’t be there or bringing the groom’s love of hunting into their floral displays or a bullet casing finish on his boutonnière. I love being about to make someone’s day special to them

Bonus tip about your business? We offer full “day-of” event management and set up, pack down. We try to dry/reuse/compost as much of displays as possible and can dry your wedding bouquet if you’d like.
