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.
Sarah is a champion for the local flower movement, and was involved in the inaugural Canadian Flowers Week, presenting a workshop using 100% locally-grown blooms and foliage, and using eco-friendly design mechanics.
In November 2018, Sarah was one of six creatives chosen to design the Christmas decor of a Victorian heritage home in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. Sarah’s design echoed the elegant simplicity of the home, with handmade evergreen garlands, silk ribbons, and beautiful vintage touches throughout.
Flourish & Knot works within a range of budgets to create beautiful, custom florals to suit your needs. Learn more about Flourish & Knot’s services.
When she isn’t working with flowers, Sarah is busy teaching music, singing in various vocal ensembles, gardening, and spending time with her family. Her career as a music educator influences her work at Flourish & Knot, where she also offers floral arranging workshops and parties.
Here’s what people are saying about Sarah’s innovative floral designs:
“I would like to thank Sarah for her exceptionnal 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. (Victoria, BC) (See this review on Facebook)
“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)
“My Mum just loved the flowers and has been enjoying them all this week as they are staying so fresh and gorgeous. ” – Joanne C. (Hudson, QC)
“Your workshop was fun and educational! I always thought I was hopeless at arranging flowers!” – Mary T. (Beaconsfield, QC)
“Thank you so much for the beautiful arrangement. My mother was thrilled and your ingenious packaging solution helped to get the flowers from Montreal to Ottawa without incident. Would certainly purchase again!” Annie D. (Montreal, QC) (See this review and picture on Facebook!)
