Hanako Floral Studio is looked after by me, Hanna Heubach.

I was raised on the outskirts of a small town in Germany, my mum a florist and my dad a gardener. My floral designs are inspired by my natural surroundings in the mountains of West Cork and there are few things I find as satisfying as the challenge of trying to work a convoluted, wild stem into an arrangement, because they give it a charm and personality that no commercially grown bloom could.

Flowers that are grown in a natural environment are vastly different from commercially grown stock. The rhythm of the seasons  enlivens my floral designs with colours , textures, and forms that are distinctive to each. I love working with different flower personalities; the way some are free in form, some wild, all unique.  While most florists revere only straight stems and perfect symmetry, we celebrate nature’s  little idiosyncrasies.

Our flower farm and studio is nestled at the top of a rambling lane amidst the rocky outcrops of west  Cork. Over twenty years of love and hard work have been poured into these acres; improving the soil, expanding flowerbeds, maintaining hedgerows, working with and learning from nature. The star of the farm is my partner Klaus, who can usually be found in one of the fields or greenhouses, tirelessly planting, weeding or harvesting. The life of a flower farmer is not always glamorous, but we have found the results are worth the long days and muddy boots.

Having worked with brides and grooms for many years, I strive to create designs that feel authentic and that celebrate the season, surrounds and each individual client. In addition to bespoke wedding florals, we also offer farm-grown plants and gorgeous seasonal bouquets at our stall at the farmer’s markets in Cork (Saturdays) and Macroom (Tuesdays.)
