"In order to truly create beauty in the world, we have to honour and nurture our inner voice and desire."
The first edition of Whispering Sparks Floral Retreat by Anne Oberwalleney (Iko Flowers) and Sebastian Conrad (Haute Jardin) was all about connection, creation, intuitive and sustainable floral design, and learning to trust in one's inner creative voice. As Sebastian put it, their aim was to create "a safe environment that allows for exploration, experimentation and elevation."
This four days retreat was held at the magical orangery of Gut Ostenwalde – a perfect wedding venue, by the way. It provided a beautiful space for the extensive floral installation with some elements climbing up on the walls and hanging from the ceiling.
It's always special to be a part of such a lovely team, to be able to create freely and to preserve the moments of the creative flow.
