Stace + the flower farm

Pull up a chair and say hello

A creative at heart, wife & mother of 3 and tender of Bees. 
Cheeky and charming, hopelessly poetic and a walking contradiction.
My journey with flowers began in 2017 after a significant personal loss within our family drove a deep desire to tether the daily life of our eldest child and I to the earth.  

We began growing Organic seasonal cut flowers and selling them within our local community, thoughtfully harvesting foraged ingredients, pairing them with flowers cultivated in our field and just like that I found my artistic medium.

With Endlessly curious, I see beauty and wonder everywhere within the natural world.
Mother nature is my ultimate muse I create naturalistic designs reminiscent on how botanicals grow in the wild.

Developing a unique bond with my Brides is a most treasured aspect of flowering for weddings. Seeing your floral dreams realised on the day of your Wedding brings joy beyond words. 
You will often find me wondering the field intuitively selecting those special individual blooms for each bride.

I look forward to meeting you and together with our team creating something really beautiful.

Have you herd of “Kintsugi“ ? It’s the Japanese art of repairing cracked pottery with gold. built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. Sometimes in the process of repairing things that have broken, we actually create something more unique, beautiful and resilient.

This flower journey is a story of Kintsugi.

From the cracks is often where you shine the brightest.

Growing up - gardening was central to the time i spent with my parents, i spent my childhood creating, making and finding the beauty in nature.

and that never realy changed...

Hey there, I'm Stacey - Owner, grower + lead designer of The Whispering Branch

We understand, and want to genuinely take care of you.
Growing and designing for a limited number of Weddings per year means that you will enjoy a customised and boutique experience 

You're here because your celebrating one of the most important and emotion filled days of your life and you know the best way to express that is through flowers: 

Every Moment is Precious

Love and kindness are never wasted

Family is everything 

Success is a journey not a destination

Never stop creating, learning and evolving

Find joy in everything, even the smallest of things

my business (and life) values

The fur + feathered menagerie.  There is never a dull moment and it s the perfect combination of love and chaos! ( probably more chaos but that just = more LOVE) 

My precious family.

my greatest loves

I would like to be a better rider, a love of riding has come upon me later in life. What an incredible way to spend time.

 Stace just thinking about everything you created and how beautiful of a person you are just makes me so emotional. I basically gave you zero brief yet you created my idea of the most perfect wonderland I could possibly imagine. I will never forget it. From the bottom of my heart, thank you

"Stace was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Nothing was ever too much trouble and her constant communication with me in the months and even hours leading up to our special day were fabulous.
As someone who has next to no idea about flowers, only had a few ideas for what I wanted included in our wedding florals. Stace managed to put together the most beautiful bouquets, boutonnières and arbour arrangement I could have ever imagined. I was so in love when I saw them all!
Then due to the weather we had a last minute change of ceremony location. Stace kept in constant touch with me that morning and made our arbour arrangement work perfectly in our new location. She even located the exact spot in our rustic shed that would be the most aesthetically pleasing for our ceremony and photos. Thank you so much Stace, I was so relaxed about the whole situation which I partly contribute to you taking this on for me.
So Stace, thank you so much for your contribution in making our day so magical.

"I was so in love when I saw them all!

"Working with Stacey was one of my favourite parts of the wedding process! She understood my vision completely and was even open to incorporating flowers I had grown myself. Even 6 months after the wedding I am still getting comments about how unique and beautiful the flowers were. Beyond the flowers, Stacey is just a dream to work with and her skills and natural design flare made me feel so relaxed about the whole process."

It was an absolute delight to work with Stacey for the flowers for our recent wedding! I had instantly fallen in love with Stacey's flowers and her designs, each piece was so unique and stunning and our wedding pieces where no exception! Not living locally didn't make the slightest difference to how beautiful our flowers where Stace and I were in regular contact via email and phone, she went above and beyond to make everything perfect sourcing a particular flower for me, and matching flowers perfectly to my dress and bridesmaids dresses. Each flower was so thoughtfully picked and arranged, I could feel the love in each piece. I received so many compliments on the day and since the wedding on how stunning our flowers were! We both loved supporting a local business as part of our wedding, and Stacey was exceptional."

"she went above and beyond to make everything perfect"
