JASMINE FULLER - Co-Founder / Creative Director / Head Florist
With over fifteen years of experience as a florist, Jasmine's creative hands have no limits and she is ever resourceful. She was born in the 'Garden City' of Christchurch but moved North to Whangarei at intermediate age and completed her schooling there. She then went on to study a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the University of Auckland, during which time she sold her paintings and was commissioned to paint many private artworks and public murals. She also studied a Diploma in Secondary Teaching to become a high school art teacher, however flowers kept calling her back. Her tenacity and hunger to learn to took her far and wide in her floral career before launching Mint Floral. She worked for many years in Auckland in high end flower shops, with online florists and for event floral co-ordinators. While working in Auckland, she met her now Fiance, Bryce. As the relationship between herself and Bryce flourished, so did the idea of Mint Floral. They both share a love for all that is artistic, unique and beautiful. They share an eye for detail and love creating quality work. At Mint, Jasmine is Creative Director and you'll still see her in store whipping up bouquets, creating and photographing new online products, developing the website, posting on social media and generally creating a fun work environment for her wonderful team. Jasmine created our website herself and does all our photography and graphic design. Outside of flowers she is proudest of her son Astro, is enthusiastic about the Vegan movement, exploring nature, camping, wearable art, painting, running and restoring furniture. FAVOURITE FLOWER: Waterlilies.
BRYCE WILLIAMS - Co-Founder / Director / Floral Courier
With a career in signage and a background in art, specifically mural painting, Bryce brings an element of flair to Mint Floral. He's a joker and is never short of original one-liners. He has the Mint team in stitches more than once a day! His calmness and centered nature brings great balance to the team. Bryce is driven by a desire to create consistent and quality work. He grew up in Auckland and also spent some years working in Sydney, Australia, before meeting Jasmine. Their mutual love of art and creativity has ignited many collaborative works between this dynamic duo. The greatest of them all being their son, Astro (and Mint Floral of course!) Outside of work he enjoys spending time with family and friends, catching waves, exploring nature, street art, sports and fitness. If you order a delivery from Mint Floral, it will most likely be delivered with a smile, by Bryce, in one of our 3 sign written vehicles (which he completed himself of course!) FAVORITE FLOWER: Gerberas
GEORGIA FANCY - Senior Florist / Wedding and Event Specialist
After graduating with a Diploma in Photography in Auckland, Georgia knew that a career in floristry was calling her. We received an excited email in mid-2017 asking to meet with us and expressing how passionate she was about entering the floral trade. Georgia has been an extremely fast learner and is very talented. She has the sweetest nature and we are loving getting to know her happy personality. She is focused, conscientious and has an eye for detail, which lends itself very well to the floristry industry. She has a Beagle Puppy called Penny, who likes to visit our store. Outside of her work life, she loves hanging with Penny at the beach, vegan baking, painting, drawing and photography, but she really doesn't like cooked veges - only raw ones, and loves 'chippies'.

After graduating from High School and spending a year in fashion retail, Keely felt a pull towards a creative career.

Keely is bubbly and energetic and will whip up your bouquet in store super fast. She's also a talented singer with the voice of an angel and we reckon one day she'll be a pop star!
