adventure time!

There’s something magical about travelling. From meticulously packing your case, to checking the passport is valid 312 times, to the moment you touch down in your destination, it’s all butterflies and excitement. Well, prepare yourself – your honeymoon is that feeling, times by at least a hundred. Usually, there’s so much focus on the wedding day, you can forget to really get fizzy with glee over the honeymoon until it’s time to jet off. While you’ll spend lots of time and energy scheduling every last detail of your biggest of all days, don’t neglect making a couple of plans for the adventure afterwards, too.

When did you first realise that you loved making jewellery? I’ve always been drawn to the creative. I really owe my passion for designing to my mum who let me put my handmade creations in her own boutique. And you made a career of it! It seems astonishing someone would actually pay you day in and day out to do what your absolute passion is. I was incredibly driven to be a commercial creative, and taking the Samantha Wills brand to new heights was the only option for me. What do you love about it? I love being able to connect with our consumers on a daily basis. It’s a great time to be a creative – with platforms like Twitter and especially Instagram, you can see exactly how and where your consumers are wearing…

When did your love of flowers begin? G: Ever since childhood I always loved nature, so it was a natural progression to begin working in the floristry industry and styling flowers every day. E: Forever! I have always loved flowers and would bring them into the house growing up all the time. And when did you decide to turn your passion into a job? G: In 1988, when I immigrated to Australia, the first job I had was as a kitchen hand. Then I saw an ad for a florist and talked my way into it!

When did your love of bridal fashion begin? Since I was little I drew sketches of dresses, actually wedding dresses – they fascinated me! The first memory I have is of my aunt on her wedding day. I remember it very well, and she looked spectacular. From that moment on I couldn’t stop being interested in all things bridal. It’s a marvellous world, full of magic! We design pieces that are going to remain in our brides’ hearts their entire life. When did you decide to make this world your everyday work? I’ve always thought that we all have to pursue our own dreams, and designing was the one I had since I was a child. So it wasn’t a decision, but more about listening to and following my heart. Tell us what you…
