After a brief hiatus from the medium of a physical store front, local florist Ivory Rose Botanicals has returned to the Bathurst CBD as part of a one-stop shop for wedding and function essentials.
The new store, collectively called The Burrow and situated at 1/237 Russell Street, combines Ivory Rose Botanicals with Penny May Photography, Kirsten Cunningham Photography and Confetti Cartel.
Ivory Rose Botanicals owner Maddie Veitch said the aim of the new venture is to provide a collective space for creatives to come together and collaborate.
"We've been running the business from home for a bit over a year but with my beautiful children getting a bit bigger, the time's right to step back out and be part of the local streetscape again," Ms Veitch said.
"I've been sitting on this concept for a while, and I think the new venture perfectly reflects where we're collectively at in our respective business careers."
Ms Veitch said the other businesses will complement Ivory Rose Botanicals through a shared approach to bring the most out of local weddings and functions, as well as home beautification and family keepsakes.
"Penny May Photography specialises in family and newborn photography, while Kirsten Cunningham Photography is known for her high-quality wedding photography," she said.
"Penny and Kirsten share Confetti Cartel, which is a photobooth hire company set to expand into neon hire and various other services for events and functions."
Ms Veitch said The Burrow has a designated shared space with a view to hire it out to other creatives who need somewhere to host a pop-up business.
"We're open to any passionate individual with something fun and a little bit different to offer," she said.
"With the world starting to get back up and running again, the time feels right for an initiative like this.
The Burrow has a series of workshops coming up in the near future. For more information, visit the Ivory Rose Botanicals Facebook page.
