Lead Creative Director

A note from Sharon…

Sharon Nicholls is the founder and lead Creative Director of Driftwood Blue. She has over 20 years combined experience in the weddings and events industry. She’s worked in both the corporate and private sectors before creating Driftwood Blue Floral in January of 2018.

“If life has taught me anything throughout my journey, it has taught me to believe in my dreams, welcome challenges, continue to grow, be myself and know that anything is possible.”

Sharon’s love for weddings and flowers, combined with her passion and flair for the natural and whimsical, inspired her to found Driftwood Blue Floral Studio. As wedding planners, event planners and event stylists we offer a service that helps couples realise their dream wedding, through design development, creative exploration and consultation.

Our Approach

At Driftwood Blue we don’t just supply flowers. We deliver your whole vision

Most couples we meet with just don’t know where to start. They may even be a little apprehensive. But by the time they’ve had their first consultation with the Driftwood Blue team, they are visibly relaxed. They feel more confident and are genuinely excited about their vision.

As event planners and stylists, our team’s approach is to spend the time getting to know our clients and what their dream day might look like. Because of this approach we’re able to deliver 100% satisfaction each and every time.

Our Booking Process

Step 1: Initial Consultation

The first step is our initial consultation, usually via video or phone call with our lead creative director, Sharon. This meeting is crucial in your decision making process and provides us with an opportunity to provide an estimate.

Note, initial estimates are a guide only. Pricing can vary due to supply fluctuations, types of blooms, style requirements and sizing and cannot be confirmed until a full design session is completed.

Before your initial consultation make sure you’ve had a think about what your florals and styling will look like. Of course, you don’t need to know it all. But having an idea of what you want will help us be able to give you what you need.

Step 2: Confirm your Booking

Once we’ve had the initial consultation and you choose to engage with us, we’ll send you an invoice with a booking fee together with our Terms and Conditions. The booking fee is usually 20% of the total estimate.

Step 3: Finalise your design

The next step is scheduling a design session. During this session we’ll go over specific details so we can provide an accurate estimate a full proposal summary detailing your requirements.

From here, once this proposal summary is accepted your design scope is finalised. You’ll then receive a full invoice with payment confirmation.

Step 4: Vision Board Designs

Ongoing vision board designs ensure that we’re delivering the event of your dreams. Whether that’s your perfect wedding, or other special event, we’ll bring your day to life, with all the elements you want to complete your vision.

We’ll give you our complete focus and attention leading up to your wedding or special event. We’re always in touch and pride ourselves on our prompt communication and attentiveness during this time.

Step 5: Final Consultation Session

8 weeks prior to your wedding, we’ll arrange a final consultation with you to run through all the finer details in preparation for your wedding day and arrange any special orders with our suppliers.

Why Choose Us

The feedback we receive always has a similar vibe – ‘You’ve plucked the vision right out of my head!’ Or ‘You were with me every step of the way.’ Or ‘You created exactly what I had in mind but even better and it was so easy and fun!’

This is what feeds our souls as wedding and event planners and stylists. And it’s why couples choose us.

We love knowing that we’ve created a beautiful setting for your wedding day or other special event.
And seeing how we’ve helped you develop and visualise your design. And, of course, giving you the opportunity to set and forget, without the constant overwhelm of all the options, to ultimately achieve the day of your dreams. This is why we do this work.

Our goal is to help you feel a part of the creative process while also giving you the confidence to trust our team of expert event planners and stylists completely.

We are generous in what we do…

We believe that generosity and value is truly the key to making magic happen! With our consultation and design sessions included and ongoing access anytime, we take the time to really understand your style and vision and support you throughout the process.

We believe in a can-do attitude…

Every single time we do something, there is a reason behind it. There is a quote by Colin Cowie that we resonate with.  ‘Love is in the detail and no detail should be overlooked.’

When we design, every single detail and challenge is thought about and considered. From the flowers to the textures, from the décor elements and design to the space and from the venue to external elements. Every decision ensures a cohesiveness and streamlined design for you.

Communication is key to our success…

Our design sessions ensure we always deliver. That’s why our proposals include all the details and are presented to you for your review, ensuring nothing is left out. Our ongoing access also provides an opportunity for open communication and we believe in always providing quick responses to our clients.

We are bound by the magic…

From the beaming smiles on the day we deliver, to the wow moments, the goose bumps and all the in-betweens, we truly love what we do and the joy it brings to all our couples! When it all comes together, with everything in place, the mood is set and is ready to create that memorable story. And that is all we want for your wedding day or other special event!


Love Notes From

Emily & Michael

Sharon was amazing from the get go.  During our first phone call together Sharon really got to know what I wanted and envisioned for my big day. We spoke into detail about colours and different florals that she thought would look amazing. Sharon took the time with me to look at Pinterest inspiration and get ideas about the florals.

On the day, Sharon was amazing, she set up the ceremony area and reception area exactly as I imagined and it blew me away. She brought the bouquets and buttonholes up to the villa that we were getting ready at and really brought my dream to life.

Thank you so much Sharon for your beautiful work ❤️
