Karen Tran Book Launch in Sydney

7Dec

038 Karen Tran Book Launch 3.12.15 INLIGHTEN-1

Few floral stylists have a reputation like Karen Tran. From humble beginnings, this talented florist has grown a somewhat cult following across the globe. The likes of Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, have seen her signature floral creations shared, regrammed and pinned a thousand times over, while Karen Tran herself spreads the floral love with educational workshops, that florists and stylists readily travel the distance to attend.

It was with great pleasure that we welcomed Karen Tran to Sydney last week, in celebration of the floral guru’s new book – Wedding Flowers. It certainly wouldn’t have been a reception for Karen Tran without some spectacular flowers. Local Sydney florist Elizabeth of Sydney Wedding Flowers attended Karen Tran’s workshop in Bali and set the scene at Dockside’s Italian Village, along with Nadia of Events by Nadia. Inlighten Photography was there to capture the elegant evening and we thought you might like a little peek of the gorgeous floral styling. It’s dream wedding inspiration!
