Hi, I’m Ali – the owner of Old Refinery and also the florist behind my other business – Hey Little Bud Florist. I operate from my home-based studio in the Adelaide hills, offering affordable flowers for weddings and events.
My love for flowers sparked at a young age, thanks to my dear nana who was also a trained florist. I would sit for hours and watch her create incredible floral displays for community and private events. As I grew up, she encouraged me to join in the creative process. So naturally, my first job, was in a florist shop.
Fast forward to today and I have found my niche in wedding floristry. My personal and informative approach aims to simplify the process, optimise your budget, and ensure your flowers are tailored to you. I understand that life is busy, and weddings can be very overwhelming to organise, so I offer great flexibility when it comes to meeting and I am available to contact on many platforms. I source from local stockists and growers where possible and personally select products to ensure the best quality for your big day.
I have been very fortunate to work alongside so many wonderful couples and I absolutely LOVE what I do. If you are looking for someone to help make one small part of your wedding day simple and beautiful please get in touch:
We absolutely loved having Ali organise flowers for our wedding day! She was so personable and made the process very seamless and easy.
Ali created some beautiful floral arrangements for our wedding this week. She captured our vision perfectly, was so personal and even added a cultural flax flower to my bouquet as a nod to my heritage. An easy communicator and an all round lovely human! Highly recommend if you need florals for your events.
Stevy and Michelle
