Happy Monday, guys. You know we like to make things easy for you, especially when it comes to your wedding details- whether it’s on your big day, or in the lead-up. And what’s one of the biggest elements that has the power to really push your day to another level? The flowers. Not just bouquets, but table arrangements and arbours, so we’ve done some serious research, and rounded up our favourite wedding florists we love to follow on Instagram.
We’ve already done the Top 20 Bridal Designers to Follow on Instagram and there’ll be more where this came from, so keep an eye out for future posts.
For now though, scroll down, because (in no particular order), you’ll find 20 florists and their work you are bound to fall in love with, as well as their Instagram handles, so you can click through – once you’re done here, of course…
Poppy & Fern are Byron Bay-based floral geniuses- and we don’t use that term lightly.

Their Instagram is bright and sunny with fun quotes, inspiring table setups and behind the scenes of media events you’ll want to see.
Prunella’s floral arrangements literally scream luxury. With a focus on large-scale creations, they are always in abundance and look especially incredible decking out their very own venue, Churchill, in Victoria.
