ABOUT ME

Welcome to VIDABELA.  My name is Dee and I have been a florist for more than 20 years. Sheesh, that makes me feel old! But really, it’s all I know!  I have worked in flower shops in a few corners of the world….Sydney, Brisbane, London, Vancouver and now based in Auckland on the North Shore.

My true passion is designing flowers for weddings and so this is how Vidabela came to be.  Vidabela, a Portuguese name meaning ‘beautiful life’, is a small business I run from home.  This means I can provide beautiful flowers and botanicals at reasonable prices as I don’t have the overheads a florist shop does, but you’re still getting the expertise of an experienced florist.

WEDDING FLOWERS

From dainty hand-tied posies to making a statement with extravagant room displays and intimate table centres, my attention to detail and quality, using the freshest blooms, will give you everything you desire on your wedding day with that special touch it deserves.

No wedding is the same and I am passionate about creating gorgeous, stylish flowers that enhance your big day, flowers as individual as you!

BOTANICALS

My latest obsession is with plants. Mostly I have been creating terrariums (little ecosystems within stylish glass vessels).

I love fossicking around at the beach to find interesting rocks, driftwood and shells. All my finds are beautiful accents alongside lush succulents, cacti and mosses. Sometimes a little dinosaur figurine or toy plane will find its way into my little landscapes to give it a little more life!

A small selection of these is available for purchase online here. I also make them to order, so if you would like something more customised send me an email with details on how you want yours made! I do these in large quantities too, supplying to garden centres as a gift line or corporate gifts etc.
