With two decades of experience under his tool belt and a portfolio of clients from the Australian Ballet to Paddington restaurant Saint Peter, florist Sean Cook is at the top of the floristry game in Sydney. His work is often focused on large-scale events, such as weddings, fashion shoots and corporate luncheons — and Cook can certainly impress with a suspended garland of vibrant pinks and purples.
Sourcing flowers from preferred growers at the markets in Flemington, Mr Cook works with a team of professionals to pull off epic showcases of floral design. He says his style is raw, rather than prim, and you can gauge more of the jaw-dropping table arrangements on his Instagram page. Though rare, Mr Cook does create flowers for delivery, too; for Mother's Day this year, Cook collaborated with Pepe Saya and Crumpets by Merna to create beautiful bouquets to deliver alongside the cultured butter and fermented sourdough crumpets.
