Kamini Soma, a proud Kiwi-Indian, born and raised in Wellington, who proudly brings her love of culture, flowers, and food to the table. Having been creative in and out of school and brought up closely with her parents family business from a very young age, she knew that she would end up being self employed in the creative industry, and has been lucky enough to find a career as a florist that combines her talent with her passion. She discovered this through a florist course at Whitireia Community Polytechnic back in 2004.
Her fascination of design with nature, trees, and flowers, inspired her to pursue this interest, and take the course at Whitireia in Porirua. When Kamini graduated she decided to start working in the florist industry in Wellington and then her passion continued to grow. After 13 years of florist experience and over 20 years business experience, she then decided after getting married to start her own florist business and put her own creative, business and floristry skills to the ultimate test.
At Flower Shop Florist Wellington, we love colour, nature and design, and seize every opportunity to share our passion. Our motivation and drive everyday comes from a complete and underlying passion for all things beautiful. Our style is very natural and loose with emphasis on simple arrangements where the foliage and blooms speak for themselves. We love country garden style and living in a built up city like Wellington, one of the things that motivate us is the idea of bringing a summer garden inside to brighten up the day.
Each arrangement should reflect both the client's and our personality, often with a modern twist. We try not to be restricted by the conventions of floristry and colours, in our books, there's no such words as clashing so long as you are happy, we are happy!!!
Our studio is our baby. It is our second home where we can get MESSY and CREATIVE any day of the week. Everyone needs their own space where they can create, make and play - we're just lucky enough that it's our craft and job as florists.
We love colour, and it is definitely reflected in our beautiful studio. We have been collecting items, as well as some new additions in an array of colours. It makes all the difference in the world to us and it really brightens up our day when we come into work!
Come in and visit us or give us a call and we will arrange you flowers for you to either collect from our florist shop or have them delivered for you anywhere in the coolest little capital of the world, WELLINGTON.
