GRACE magazine: inside the Sydney studio of florist Myra Perez

When we visit floral artist Myra Perez’s Sydney studio, the room is filled with the most beautiful rosy blooms we’ve ever seen. She’s been up since before 4am prepping for Jesinta Franklin’s wedding. We didn’t know this at the time – the Australian model and TV host’s marriage to AFL star Buddy Franklin was kept under wraps until the big day....

How does she handle the early starts? “I call it the witching hour. I am NOT a morning person and I struggle every day, especially in winter. Even 15 years later. I do it because I love it,” she says. As she walks around her studio talking about the different blooms (pink lily of the valley, David Austin roses, hydrangeas, orchids…), we’re more and more inspired by her passion for floristry. It’s no wonder everyone wants to work with her.
