CEO & Creative Director
Originally from The Bahamas, Stephanie Duncanson is a floral and wedding designer extraordinaire with several decades of experience.
For years, as she created magnificent floral designs for thousands of wedding in the Turks and Caicos Islands, she watched as brides dressed in formal, highly embellished, traditional wedding gowns dragged their heavy trains through the sand for their dream beach weddings.
This scene gave the floral designer, owner of the Flower Girl shops in Providenciales (Provo), Turks and Caicos an idea: Create a comfortable, cool, soft cotton wedding gown, as beautiful as the traditional wedding attire, but more appropriate and comfortable for the beach wedding. And develop an entire tropical wedding package, highlighted by the bright colors of the local bougainvillea flowers.
A DREAM REALIZED
She did the floral design for weddings at Beaches in Provo and on Parrot Cay for 15 years and has worked with all the top local hotels and clubs and their weddings planners. Stephanie D is proud that she has now, at the age of 64, launched a new stage of her career. She said, “The Bougainvillea Tropical Wedding collection is now complete- flowers, brides’ and bridesmaids’ dresses and the groom’s white shirt, made of soft tissue linen.
Stephanie D has served many other celebrities, including creating wedding designs for celebrity fashion designer Donna Karan, with Preston Bailey, international wedding and even design icon. She created all-white home floral arrangements for Donatella Versace. She has worked with celebrity designer Martha Stewart at Beaches resorts for 15 years.
