Lisa O'Connell has been working in the
floral industry for over 25 years.
The owners of Wallingford, Lisa & David O’Connell both grew up in Bendigo. Lisa completed her floristry apprenticeship at “Cut n Dried flowers” in Chancery Lane.
In 1992 they moved to Melbourne so David could complete his Batchelor of Engineering, while Lisa worked at “in full Bloom” South Melbourne.
Married in 1997 and having their first girl Lily,
they purchased their first house in Croydon where they lovingly restored an Edna Walling style garden.
2001 Amelia arrived and the decision was made to
move to the country.
November 2001 they purchased the property 'Wallingford' and began their first plantings at 'Wallingford Farm'.
Lisa creates exquisite wedding florals that are a mix of bespoke and unique foliage, elaborate roses and sustainably grown and sourced flowers using her freeform creative aesthetic.
Creating bridal bouquets, arbours, installations, sign flowers, cake florals and enchanting wedding tables are amongst her floral design handiwork.
"If you have a wedding or special event coming up, look no further than Lisa! She is the best in the business. My wedding flowers were more beautiful than I could have ever dreamt of and I couldn’t have been happier. Thank you Lisa, you are amazing!”
