Raglan & native flowers


Fresh flowers are evocative and significant; providing colour, scent and soft organic shapes. Floral arrangements can be enhanced and personalised by incorporating flowers, herbs or vegetables from home gardens.

At the end of the funeral ceremony, petals or individual flower stems may be placed on the coffin, an opportunity for those attending to make a final and tactile connection and farewell.

We recommend

New to the northern suburbs in Ngaio is Melissa Jane Flower Studio on Ottawa Road. Melissa has a fresh approach and our families have been thrilled with her floral creativity. She enjoys the direct contact with our families and is happy to incorporate flowers and foliage from their home gardens.

In town Flowers Manuela on Abel Smith Street. Manuela and her team have worked with a number of our families to create stunning arrangements. You can talk to them directly about what you want – flowers for the venue, buttonholes, individual stems, wreaths, traditional or contemporary coffin sprays.

Broadbent & May can organise the flowers on your behalf or you can make your own arrangements involving family and friends or alternative florist.
