“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do”
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 North Vancouver, BC Canada, and we are open to traveling for destination weddings.
We have been featured on publications including OnceWed, Grey Likes, Weddingbells, Botanical Brouhaha, and more.

Kiki Uyede- floral designer and artistic director of Hanaki Floral Design, began her floral journey as an ikebanist from Sogetsu School of Ikebana. She has participated in many local ikebana exhibitions and demonstrations throughout the years displaying her floral art pieces to the public. She is a certified ikebana teacher and currently holds 'Teacher's Diploma 2nd Grade Sanyo' (1st grade being the highest)
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. Kiki often relates to her ikebana roots, attention to details, and her love and interest in experimenting with different materials when creating her floral pieces.
Kiki looks up to her ikebana sensai greatly and believe in always improving no matter how old or how good you are. She has 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.
When Kiki is not at 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 and photography.
