Bulb is a light that sparks a new beginning. A bulb is at the heart of a plant laying dormant, sleeping until the right moment comes for it to awaken and grow. Defined by multiple things, all of which anticipate an openness to change, growth and possibility.
Zahn Rust - Founder and Owner
Zahn Rust was born in Cape Town and completed her studies at Stellenbosch University in 2012 , graduating with a masters degree in Fine Art. She spent 6 years working with Okasie in Stellenbosch where she fell in love with flowers. After completing – years in the industry she decided it was time for her to launch her own company, and the initial seed for Bulb was planted. A few fun evenings with friends and family followed and in January 2018 Bulb officially sprouted.
“Working with flowers as an artist and creative, I see each colour and stem as I would the paint on a palette. Bringing me immense peace and joy as I work to create the perfect floral arrangement for your special occasion. I hope to share my heart, creativity and truth with every person I encounter on this journey.” – Zahn Rust, founder of Bulb

Dry blooms combined with fresh cymbidium orchids; bespoke wedding gowns; rich warm colour palettes and all set in the industrial magnificence of The Old Tannery in Wellington. All the contrasting elements made for a magical scene and inspiring photographs.
