, the flower shop of Nicu Bocancea in Bucharest, Romania, has its own way to decorate weddings.
Nicu: "Every day, we see in our clients’ hearts the eagerness and emotion to fulfill a wish or a fairy tale dream, and we are happy to say that our flowers are part of the decor. The story continues every day, and the happiest thing is that we are together the main characters in it!"
Nicu Bocancea – Creative Director, Florist, and Well-Known Teacher
It’s been a while since Nicu started to tell stories through and with flowers, and as time passed, he counted lots and lots of accomplishments. Mentioning just a few of them: he won 1st place at ‘Best Flower Designers Exhibition’, a contest hosted by Queen Ana of Romania, followed by the claiming of the 7th place in Europe at the European Florist Championship and the 3rd place at the Singapore Garden Festival – the first and only international garden show in the tropics that showcased creations from the world’s top award-winning garden and floral designers.
Furthermore, Bocancea was a Flower Fundamental ambassador at the IPM Essen, the master florist at FLOOS, and the one that had his artworks presented two consecutive times in the prestigious International Floral Art Catalog, well-known worldwide as the number one sample in floristry. And what is there to do with all this knowledge? Pass it on, of course! Nicu made demonstrations and workshops in Great Britain, Russia, Spain, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Belgium, and Romania.
Flowers Are the World to Nicu Bocancea of Floraria Iris
How was this possible? Through ceaseless study, infinite attention for every single flower, master classes with his mentor Gregor Lersch, and with passion and devotion. When he's asked if he would like to do something else, he says he couldn’t because he’s only happy when his flowers accompany him.
Let Nature and Art Collide
You can always meet Nicu in his studio, working on his art pieces. Nicu:
"Because our actions define us, it’s time to change our mentality, learn to breathe again, slowly, calmly, and live simply, in harmony with the rhythms of nature - even if that often means to just stop and listen to her symphony. If I do that, I know exactly what my clients want, I let nature and art collide in beautiful floral design, and with our fabulous team we create and we make the couple's wedding day the biggest dream of their lives."
