Lumiere is a floral design studio specialising in wedding and event flowers operated by designer Christine Richards.
She owes her passion for flowers partly to a wild and rambling garden in suburban Brisbane, complete with waterlilies growing in bathtubs, arches tumbling with roses and various treasures growing wildly out of teapots. This was the garden at her Grandmother's house, and as a child she spent countless happy hours here foraging and exploring.
After many years in a health professional role, Christine undertook formal training in Floristry and launched Lumiere- initially as a hobby to rediscover and pursue her passion for flowers- but quickly found that it turned into her true calling.
Her style is often wild and romantic, but always with an elegant touch- and she loves to put together elements that are unexpected and textural. She sources local flowers wherever possible, and is passionate about reducing the environmental impact of her work. She has an eye for detail, loves a challenge and prides herself on the high level of workmanship in her designs.
