When Karen Tran came to Brisbane!
With Celebrant Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants
Karen Tran is an international floral designer who is highly regarded by florists worldwide and who’s glamorous work fills many brides ‘Wedding inspo’ boards on Pinterest.
Within the wedding industry she is quite the star so needless to say there was much excitement when Karen Tran came to Brisbane and hosted a gala dinner dripping with opulence and of course thousands and thousands of flowers.
I was thrilled to be a guest of honour at this stunning event accompanied by other local wedding and international wedding professionals.
The event took place at Hillstone St Lucia, a venue we both know very well as local Celebrants we have performed many weddings here over the years.
The venue was absolutely breath taking, after mingling with fellow guests over a glass of bubbles and canapes I entered though a door way covered by an arch of fresh flowers, and to my surprise I was greeted by a warm and friendly Karen Tran in front of a huge flower wall, full of fresh roses in various pastel shades. I took the opportunity of a photo with the lady herself before taking a walk around the room to take in every magnificent little detail.
A generous team of sponsors had donated their time and expertise to bring the event together which included a company that creates flower walls with artificial flowers, these adorned the ceiling and rear wall while the tables were full of extravagant displays of orchids and roses. Undoubtedly more flowers than I have ever seen in one room in my life!
The food and service was exceptional and I loved getting to meet new people and hearing the stories of their businesses as we all shared so much passion and a love for the wedding industry.
I am so grateful that I got to experience something so special and I have no doubt we will be seeing more of Karen Tran’s signature floral extravaganza style here in QLD as she left such a wonderful impression on everyone that attended.
