Xavier Nicolle is a floral design, even design and wedding planning studio based on the Gold Coast, Queensland. We have a love for nature and you will often find us out in the bush somewhere foraging for key elements to bring your flowers closer to their surroundings. We look to the seasons to produce for us an abundance of blooms and foliage’s that are perfect for us to create a unique design that will bring your wedding vision to life.
“The art of being creative has always made me feel alive”
It has been some time since I spread seeds of cornflower and lambs ear in a patch of earth that I called my garden in North-west Tasmania.
By age 12 I was growing and selling flowers to the local florist down the road. I was forever dreaming up plans of being a florist and researching what I could grow next. I had found my medium and it was flowers.
Trying to break into the flower industry in Tasmania was not easy, I found myself working in vineyards and flower farms across Northern Tasmania instead. These opportunities gave me an in depth knowledge of how to grow and pick flowers.
I finally landed myself a job as a florist and eight years later I still get butterflies when I get to create something that pushes my boundaries. After living in Tasmania for most of my life it was time for a sea change, so we packed up the three kids and dog and moved to sunny Queensland.
Xavier Nicolle was an easy choice for my studio name. My dad thought it was fitting to name his daughter “Xavier” back in the 80’s, not a common name for girls and still isn’t. Many years later I married a man whose ancestors came from the island of Jersey off the coast of France. That was as close to being french as I was ever going to get. So with my love of flowers and all things green and a great French name to boot, I opened my Floral Design Studio on the Gold Coast.
“I would just like to say a very big thank you to Xavier who made my dream wedding a huge success. If you need someone who can take charge, see the end result and then take over to make sure this happens then Xavier is your gal. Xavier kept close contact with us making sure this was an enjoyable experience. As for the big day Xavier was bang on with expected service and the delivery was perfect. I am truly grateful my Aunty recommended Xavier, the best and most reliable florist on the Gold Coast.”

“We were so excited to have Xavier Nicolle’s create a floral installation for our Spring Marketta Long Lunch, all of our guests were photographed in front of the entrance piece which framed the event perfectly. Xavier was able to work around some challenging attachment point for the floral work. We loved her work so much that we didn’t want her to take them down, and had them left up as long as we possible could.”
