Dreamboats & Carousels is floral design as art, using nature’s perfect imperfection as both inspiration and palette.
We use this profound palette of colour, movement and vitality to paint what we have worked together to imagine, bringing life to designs that reach beyond our clients’ wildest dreams.
Dreamboats & Carousels is fun and playful, but also full of sentiment.That’s the story of how the brand got its name, too - Dreamboats & Carousels was the pedigree name the Kennel Club gave to my first pup, so it’s very close to my heart. We believe in impactful and immersive floral design. We design based on how floral installations make people feel, how they will be captured in the photographs, and how they shape and bring together the aesthetic of your wedding.
Flowers should have such a profound sensory impact, wowing visually, as well as through touch and smell. The temporary, ephemeral beauty that our designs bring to your wedding or exclusive event heighten the already astounding emotions of your day, bring so much beauty to your surroundings and your pictures, and paint the most beautiful backdrop to this celebration, evoking feelings that become cherished, life-long memory.
NATURE-LED, EPHEMERAL BEAUTY TO HEIGHTEN EXQUISITE OCCASIONS
We believe in celebrating the temporal, and ephemeral - the unique ‘nowness’ of your day. You will never see the same design twice, as Kim, the Founder and Designer behind every D&C event, creates bespoke designs for each client. Each couple end up with this bespoke floral installation - an individual, ephemeral piece of art - reflective of their unique tastes, their venue, their style, and the season. This allows Kim the joy of artistic expression and creative freedom, too.
We believe in the individuality of nature, too. We embrace the dynamic movement, delicacy, and intrigue that natural flowers and foliages bring, as their stems twist and turn, flower heads chasing the sun. Every flower has a perfect place to bring its value to your design.
"Your talent is beyond my wildest dreams."
KIM! Honestly you are incredible! Your talent is beyond my wildest dreams. The whole space was more than anything I could have dreamt of. I spent the whole evening looking at everyone's faces as they looked around. Thank you so so so so much! Eternally grateful xxxx
Kim was highly professional, realistic and kind. Kim's creations truly made our day; all of our guests were totally wowed. They were wonderful , smelt divine, and we were lucky enough to be able to take them home the next day to enjoy for another week. I have absolutely no reservations recommending Kim, as well as giving her total creative freedom-she really will produce something wonderful that you won't ever forget. A big hug, tears of joy, and the knowledge that we will remember your masterpieces forever and ever, as well as your reassurance, friendship and warmth that radiated like sunshine, is the best I can offer by way of thanks.
Kim was like a breath of fresh air to work with. She was so happy to work with us alongside our planner to create a floral design that was unique to us and our style. In the lead up to the wedding she sent us some sketches of our floral designs, which were lovely to keep, but it was also so nice to know that we were on the same page! What she actually created on the day was nothing short of a masterpiece. Our huge hanging installation was pretty much the talk of our wedding, and she created an absolute monstrosity of a flower arch that was beyond our wildest dreams, and covered the whole of the 6 metre arch from floor to ceiling. Kim was a lovely calming influence to be around, and I really loved working with her.
Kim's approach to floral design really stood out to us when working with our planner to select the florist for our wedding. We loved her enthusiasm to create something new for us, and to transform our beautiful venue over the course of the 3 days. What Kim and her team created for us blew us away; we'd never seen anything like it, and neither had our guests!
Where to start? I'm not sure my words will do Kim justice, but I'll try...Kim is without a shadow of a doubt the best decision we made with regards to our wedding. Her floral designs are out of this world. She created something that left me absolutely speechless. Every single arrangement was STUNNING, and I really do mean that. The real piece de resistance, however, is Kim herself-she is the most gorgeous person. She not only has a passion for what she does, but that passion extends to her couples too. She is kind, caring, friendly, patient, funny, and in all honesty, she's someone I'd love to be friends with! I know she'll only go from strength to strength, as she goes the extra mile for every single client.
