Lush, asymmetrical, unruly, romantic, like life, floral design often begins with pipe dreams, and, given the right care and thought, mushrooms into the most heart-warming, memory-evoking, organic-wrought source of happiness.
For Oniranthi’s flower sisters, growing dreams into reality began with a running a micro enterprise whose aim was to bring smiles on people’s faces. Born in Rethymno, Crete, the siblings’ love for the land melded with their natural inclination to root the unconventional. Having both graduated Landscape Architecture and Floriculture, Eleni went into Floral Design, and Anastasia dug in a plant nursery.
When in 2010 Eleni opened shop and invited her sister to come and help, Anastasia didn’t need to hear the invitation twice. She waved the plant nursery goodbye, and never looked back. With Eleni & Anastasia’s combined talents, it wasn’t long before Oniranthi gained a faithfull following. Having earned their stripes as one of Crete’s leading wedding florists the “soeurs aux fleurs” ‘s restless spirit brought them the first-place award at the Greek Flower Cup Pro 2016, with Florint and Eurofleurs coming up roses for the industrious duo.
Today, with hundreds of destination weddings and elopements under their belt Oniranthi is the absolute go-to for floral designs of their own accord. They’ll clip and snip from the bounty that grows on the Cretan grounds, source seasonal divas from the finest growers abroad, and stay adventuresome just like their brides and grooms.
