editor’s letter

In my dreams (the ones where I enjoy waking up very early) I like to imagine life as a florist. The buzz of pre-dawn trips to the market, the creativity and satisfaction of putting together a perfect arrangement, and the romance of spending my days in a fragrant studio... In reality, florists work tirelessly to realise a couple’s wedding dreams, and though we all enjoy the spoils of their beautiful work, their hard graft behind the scenes is certainly more than I could handle.
