Thessaloniki / Chalkidiki /
At Maria Voudouri Botanical Design we are committed to thoughtfully curated events, scent-sational floral experiences, and intentional arranging of blooms for weddings of all kinds, private celebrations, fashion and styling installations. Our one-off approach and sublime quality blossoms and foliage are meticulously sourced to evoke seasonality, while we will often use flowers, herbs, and foliage grown on our very own bowery in Epanomi, Thessaloniki, Nothern Greece.
Offering her guidance and precious insights, creating plans and boards, contracting top-of-their-game floriculturists, managing orders, concocting and arranging bridal bouquets and boutonnières, aisle pieces, decorative constructions, installations, and specialty floral details and their accouterments, Maria will also provide creative direction, supervise the setting up, and the tearing down, and craft a full-blown floral story that truly reflects her clients' vision.
Maria Voudouri Botanical Design works on original, artful, and creative compositions that thrive off textural exuberance, hues, effortless ambiance, and just the right amount of riot. Maria will curate and design fresh florals as an integral part of our clients' comprehensive concept.
WE UNDERSTAND WHO
OUR CLIENTS ARE
Our individual and highly intentional approach to botanical design for weddings and events begins with our clients. We aim to bring your hopes, excitement, thoughts (both first and second) to the table and kindle the little spark that will add value to your floral story.
We understand that even the most ardent floral design can come apart at the seams if the vision is not artfully and skillfully curated. As we work together to select key floral design elements, Maria's perspective involves an all-sensory experience both for her clients and their guests. Florals are the most impactful element of each curated event and wedding, and her unfaltering attention to detail will ensure a concierge-style service provided.
Our philosophy is simple: pristine quality and impeccable design is what our clients deserve. Sourcing only the most splendiferous, perfectly cut stems and flowers, siding with top-drawer horticulturists, and hand-selecting each and every piece that goes into our floral arrangements and installations, we only buy seasonally, from independent, sustainable growers, and are the only botanical studio in Greece to grow our own rare varieties of flowers, foliage, herbs, citruses, climbers and fruit.
