Last update: February 2024

Nineteen Melrose Flower Studio is a little space specializing in creating your wedding. Though my studio is small, my ability to create big beautiful weddings & events (and small ones too!) is not constrained within this space. I will joyfully engage in your vision and style and give you options.

Since openning my first retail location in 1999, moving to a larger location in 2003 and then deciding to build my perfect forever studio in my back garden. I continue to grow and am inspired by my colleagues and reknowed designers to create trending and timeless events.

I have been designing since 1999, producing floral designs for weddings and life events. My education in graphics and fine art has helped me with timeless designs, colours harmonies, and beautiful balance to create your perfect day.

Thank you for your interest in me, Marilyn Ruyter.

Beautiful Wedding Flowers

My husband and I worked with Marilyn at Nineteen Melrose for our wedding flowers. From the beginning, we knew we were in great hands! Marilyn really helped us bring our floral vision to life. Our flowers were absolutely stunning, and all of our guests were raving about how beautiful they were, and how they really liked the bright colours and originality of the design. We also found Marilyn provided great value for our wedding floral budget. We would absolutely recommend Marilyn to other wedding couples.

The flowers were beautiful!

The flowers were gorgeous and went beyond my expectations! Everyone gave compliments about how pretty they were. Would definitely use this vendor again for an event she was so helpful even after postponing twice because of COVID.

Absolutely Amazing!

Marilyn was absolutely amazing and super easy to work with, I asked for a LARGE cascading bouquet and that is exactly what I got. The quality of the flowers and attention to detail was spot on. She took what we were describing and made it come to life! I highly highly recommend her for any of your flower needs!

Beautiful Flowers!

This place is a real gem! From our first meeting with Marilyn to the day of our wedding we felt like we were in good hands! Marilyn truly knows her art and has a magic touch when it comes to flowers. I had sooo many people at the wedding comment on how gorgeous the flowers were. I dried out my bouquet because it was beautiful and I couldn't let it go! Thank you so much Marilyn and thank you for travelling so far out of your way to make our wedding absolutely beautiful!

More than we could have asked for

From the start Marilyn was a dream to work with! From our first meeting she got right down to business, wasn鈥檛 offended or turned off when we said we didn鈥檛 have a very large budget for flowers but she truly went above and beyond to make what we did have look flawless.
On top of her work being amazing she was just one of the nicest people, she was so knowledgeable, kind, and understanding.
I would recommend 19 Melrose to anyone looking to have stunning flowers on their special day!
Thank you Marilyn, we couldn鈥檛 have dreamed of a more perfect day thanks to you!
