Every flower, branch, and foliage are unique and one of a kind. Every curve, angle, and length are grown the way they are and are special in their own way. Hanaki Floral Design focuses on the natural beauty of the movement and flow of every bloom and foliage. We love to experiment and use the most unique botanical and textures to create beautiful floral art pieces for weddings and events. Our design studio is located in Vancouver, BC Canada.

MEET THE DESIGNER
Kiki Uyede- floral designer and artistic director of Hanaki Floral Design, began her floral journey as an ikebanist from Sogetsu School of Ikebana in 2010. She has participated in numerous local ikebana exhibitions and demonstrations throughout the years, displaying her ikebana pieces to the public. She is a Japan certified ikebana teacher and currently holds 'Teacher's Diploma 2nd Grade Jonin Sanyo' as of 2017. (1st grade Riji being the highest)
Kiki's motto is: 'Always be humble, and never stop learning and creating.' To enhance her design skills, Kiki have attended workshops at Nicolai Bergmann in Japan, the Tokyo headquarter of Sogetsu, as well as workshops from Kika Shibata, Holly Chapple, Cultivated by Christian, and master workshops from Tulipina and Ponderosa & Thyme.
After years of working for some of Vancouver's most established flower shops and studio as lead designer, it was time to establish Hanaki Floral Design in 2018. Kiki often connect to her ikebana roots, attention to details, and her love and interest in experimenting with different materials when creating her floral pieces.
When Kiki is not in the studio flowering away or at the computer writing up quotes and emails, she spends majority of her free time tending to her cut flower garden, cooking, and practicing her photography skills.
