Rita Feldmann has been working with flowers since she could point a hose into a bucket. A second-generation florist, Rita has worked extensively in retail and events, servicing some of Melbourne’s finest hotels and restaurants. Since 2006, Rita has operated a weddings-only business ‘Blooming Brides’ in the heart of Victoria’s flower-growing region, the Dandenong Ranges.
Rita is widely regarded for her distinctively generous and natural style featuring locally grown flowers. No floral foam is used in any designs.
Consultations are by appointment only. Before meeting, clients are encouraged to collect a few images that demonstrate the look and feel they are after.
During meetings, an extensive portfolio, range of glassware and styling props can be viewed.
Following the consultation, clients are provided with an itemised cost breakdown. Consultations are held during the week, evenings and on weekends. However, weekend appointments are limited in the thick of wedding season.
Address: Level 1, 439 Monbulk Rd, Monbulk Victoria (above Lakeside Flowers)
We have a minimum spend of $3000 for events involving venue set-up and pack down. Costs are determined by choice of flower varieties, desired volume and complexity of design.
Straightforward orders that involve the supply or purchase of glassware/vessels and do not require a pack-down are negotiable. Bridal-flower-only orders are possible, with most bouquets for the bride falling between $200 - $250. Delivery fees are determined by the return distance and driving time from our studio and we can deliver anywhere in Melbourne.
Business hours for contact are Tuesday – Saturday, though we work on all days of the week. Between Friday – Sunday we can be extremely busy doing weddings and events and it might take a few days for a response.
To arrange an appointment, please submit an enquiry through the enquiries page or call 0417 114444. Unfortunately we cannot provide written quotes without meeting clients. However, we are willing to have a chat with clients and give a cost indication over the phone.
