Sarah Burnell is the creative force of Flourish & Knot, where she offers a fresh take on floral design. Published in Mariage Quebec Magazine (June 2019), Montreal wedding florist Sarah creates eye-catching florals for events, while incorporating sustainable and eco-friendly design practices. With a penchant for designs that allow the flowers to flow and move naturally, Sarah uses locally-grown blooms and greenery as much as possible.

“Thank you so incredibly much for the flowers you created for our wedding day! They were beyond gorgeous and absolutely perfect! Honestly, you understood the aesthetic I was going for to a tee and pulled the whole look together with your beautiful blooms! Everyone was commenting to me about how lovely they were and I couldn’t stop talking about them myself. They also provided enjoyment for days after with various family members and friends who took them home.
Not only were your arrangements beautiful, but you were such a positive presence to have around our wedding and really went the extra mile, even telling me and my girls when we could get walking down the aisle. It was so helpful! You really were an angel throughout our whole wedding process. Your attention to detail and gusto for what you do really shines through in your work and Evan and I are beyond pleased that you could be a part of our wedding day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Amelia R (Montréal, QC)

“I would like to thank Sarah for her exceptional work for my wedding few weeks ago. I was amazed about how beautiful (and local!) her flower arrangements were. Working with her was a delight from the beginning. She made me fell confortable from the start, was always very professional, answered quickly my emails, had tons of great suggestions for me and gave me great advise. I must admit she was a great support ! If I were to plan another wedding, I would not hesitate a second and chose her again ! Thank you so much Sarah for everything !” – Marie-Noelle T-B.

“Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She ordered the flowers for our reception and created our beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for our entire bridal party – IN TWO WEEKS. In addition, she delivered them to a remote area since we were getting married pretty far from Montreal. Not too sure what I would have done without her and her creative talent. And a great bonus is that she works with local farms to get her flowers, so they are incredibly fresh and vibrant!! Definitely recommend her if you’re looking for a florist for your wedding.” – Judith D. (Toronto, ON) (See this review on Facebook)
“Sarah provided the boutique that I work at with beautiful bouquets for an event we were hosting. First of all, Sarah is amazing! She’s so kind and organized. AND so are her flowers! I love that she’s eco-conscious. You can tell that her flowers have been well taken care of, and she arranges them in such a beautiful way. If I get married one day or if we organize another event, I’m calling her! I think she would be a breath of fresh air for any bride or event planner!” – Talia S. (Dorval, QC) (See this review on Facebook)
