Big Leaf Boutique, founded by Creative Director Jonny Taylor is immersed in the business of flowers, foliage and design. Complementing a strong background in floral art botanical installations and styling, Jonny has progressed to controlling his own materials.
With a 100-acre property in the NSW hinterland north of Byron Bay, an abundance of produce is grown from rare palms to variations in flowers and foliage. This produce is available wholesale and regular deliveries are made to the flower Markets, throughout Australia. Special orders can also be arranged, delivered directly to your shop, business or project.
Competitive pricing and a quality-fresh product are always ensured as you are dealing directly with the grower. Utilising much of their own produce, Jonny and his team draw from their extensive experience as florists and floral sculptors to execute creative installations for any occasion from weddings. to corporate events. window installations to film sets. Big Leaf Boutique, as its name suggest, uses amongst other things oversized, rare and interesting lush tropical foliage and exotic blooms all grown on site and not commonly found in such work.
Originating from the same hometown as his first and most Influential employer, Kenneth Turner, Jonny moved to London and started his career in floral artistry working for the already well established Kenneth Turner Floral Couture. Working on a variety of projects for high profile clients such as The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Trudi Styler and the later Princess Diana Jany was able to realise his passion in creating sculptural installations using a variety of botanical materials.
Moving to Australia in 1997 Jany set up Casablanca Flowers in Double Bay where he continued to work as a florist and floral artist serving the people of the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. After 10 years in retail, and with a desire to get closer to the source of where great produce came from, Jonny decided a tree change would be best. With children on the way, a move to the NSW Byron Bay Hinterland on the NSW North Coast allowed him to start grov1ing his own produce and supply his friends and colleagues who he left behind in Sydney.
This quickly grew. and with the advent of the internet and more recently social media, Jany’s produce has become well known and highly sought after by florists and events companies alike to add that something extra to their own work. His design eye and experience as a florist and floral artist allows him to concentrate on growing unique pieces v1hich he knows will add value, as well as sourcing and identifying the next trends in foliage.
