Luxury wedding and events florist, John Emmanuel dropped into the Koch & Co Auburn superstore recently to add some industry extravagance to the aisles.
A master in his trade, John has worked alongside many high-profile Australian wedding planners to create some of Australian’s most luxurious events.
Over two days, John and his skilled team worked in-store to create an array of grand scale floral installations, utilising the best artificial flowers and florist supplies that Koch & Co have to offer.
“Some people like going to Bunnings, I like coming to Koch & Co because there are so many beautiful products to play with,” John said.
Known for his signature white, cream and blush arrangements; John chose to push the boundaries for these new installations. Working with bright and bold hues, he aimed to showcase every colour in the Koch & Co range to fully express how artificial flowers can make an artful and striking statement.
“I think a few years ago there was a stigma against artificial flowers, but I think now the quality has come so far, they’re absolutely beautiful and so realistic,” John said.
The first two installations that his team set to work on were a suspended flower arch, dripping with champagne gold orchids and ruby red English roses, and a large matte white fibreglass urn, filled with cream delphiniums and metallic gold fan palm leaves.
Take a look at some more of the stunning pieces that came to life during John’s time at Koch & Co:
