who we are
Coral Shortt & Chantell Lethbridge are the core of a small and dedicated design team.
Having jointly delivered over 150 weddings and many other events, we have a combined 20 years experience in the flower industry & have been working together as Green Goddess since 2011.
When not out styling your gorgeous event, we can be found at the studio in Kenilworth, bringing beautiful designs to life or gathering unusual materials & flowers from the overflowing garden.
Experience counts & you can expect each event or wedding to be exquisitely curated, with an emphasis on trendsetting design, intriguing materials & quality flowers.
We are involved in every step of the process and we never outsource our flowers, and one of us will always be on-site for your special day or event.
Our respective backgrounds in graphic design and information technology/project management, have a positive influence on our process and management of your event from start to finish.
Our greatest reward, is a job well done, that fulfilled your vision, exceeded your expectations and may result in the opportunity to do more beautiful work, when you happily tell others.
We have spent time finding the balance between delivering the product our clients want and responsible stewardship of our natural resources. We have incorporated sustainability into our business by:
- Sourcing flowers and foliage from local farms
- Growing some of our own materials: interesting flowers and foliage, which we water from our borehole
- Composting cutoffs and greens
- Recycling and reusing plastics and packaging
- Training staff to make candles from recycled wax
You can join our sustainability initiative by allowing us to deliver any flowers, not taken home from your wedding, to local hospitals and old age homes and spread the joy for a little longer.

Thank you so much to Coral and Chantelle for the stunning floral arrangements and table settings they did for our wedding day. It was all so perfect and even better than what I imagined. Being based abroad meant I had to put all of my trust into Coral's expertise and she delivered above and beyond. Thank you again
My fiancée, Chris, and I were thrilled to work with Coral and Chantell for our wedding. They are so incredibly talented and we simply cannot speak highly enough of their great work. From our first meeting, I knew the Coral and Chantell were not just your average florists. They took the time to get to know us and to understand the look and feel that we were going for (which at that point was a handful of random style ideas and a color palette). When my fiancée and I arrived at the mock up, we were floored by how beautifully and creatively they interpreted and executed our vision. We thought they couldn’t possibly out do the mock-up, then the day of the wedding arrived and, WOW they really, REALLY exceeded our expectations. The flowers were exquisite. My bouquet was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. All of the décor was stunning, creative and unique, with no small detail overlooked. A month on, we are still receiving compliments
I know I’ve said it on social media – but thanks again for all your hard work on the day. I did feel fantastic and the feelings all come flooding back when I see the photos.
Thank you SO much for everything – the care taken beforehand, the consultations, our meeting – and then the final flowers. We all LOVED them!
The most caring florist you will ever meet. Coral is fantastic and takes the time to understand her clients in order to bring their ideas to life. I was completely blown away when I got to my wedding and saw what magic they had created. It was clear to see the love that went into every detail. It looked like a fairy tale. Thank you so so much!!!
