Welcome to the creative world of Annick Van Wesemael
When the name 'Annick Van Wesemael' resonates through space, you will find romantic bouquets, impeccably decorated tables, enflowered wedding parties...
Moreover, you will experience a nice and cosy atmosphere, a good and refined taste and parties of every kind.
With her sense for colour, texture, flowers, fragrance, subtlety and interior, Annick knows like no nobody else how to transform by magic your interior, party, event, booth... into a captivating, inspiring and aesthetic experience.
Annick is truly romantic. Since she was a child, she has been making bouquets and flower arrangements for her mother and grandmother. She picks flowers from the surrounding nature or gets them from the flower vendors nearby. At the age of 15, she gets to know her husband, Joris De Wolf. 'By chance', Joris's parents own a flower shop. Annick thoroughly enjoys working in their shop 't Prieeltje' every weekend while learning the tricks of the trade from her mother-in-law Maria Nijs, who also takes her to see demonstrations, workshops and wholesalers to make purchases.
Meanwhile, Annick is frequenting two flower schools. On the one hand she learns the creative techniques of masters such as Daniël Ost, Geert Pattyn and Moniek Vanden Berghe, on the other hand, on evenings, she gets into bridal work, mourning arrangements, table decorations and settings.
Nearly 18, Annick feels ready to measure up to her Belgian colleagues and show her creative capabilities to the world. With a genuine display of skills she obtains a silver medal at the Belgian flower arrangement championships. But her big dream remains: starting her own flower shop.
In January 1994, Annick and Joris get the opportunity to take over Joris's parents' shop. Annick also teaches three evenings a week, inspires young florists and passes on her expertise.
