Like so many florists I started as a Saturday girl when I was 14. I feel extremely lucky to have found something I loved so young. By my 20’s I was managing a flower shop and over time grew more and more interested in bridal flowers. I made the move to become a full time wedding florist in 2008 and left the traditional flower shop set up behind. These days you can find me at the flower market or working from the studio at the end of my garden.
I love experimenting and I love a challenge. You’ll find I’m just as comfortable up a ladder hanging a 20ft garland as I am creating centerpieces. I love experimenting with new and unusual combinations and adding texture wherever I can. For me the space between the blooms is just as important as the flowers themselves and I’d take a hedgerow posy over something from the hot-house any day.
My favourite flower is the rose. It’s ageless, defies styles and trends, and there are so many varieties to choose from whether it’s a deep velvety red or a dusky pink floribunda. I also love anything with a short season; tulips and peonies especially. And foliage. Always foliage.
I’ve worked with countless venues around the South West and have particular experience working with Kingscote Barn, Aldwick Vineyard, Coombe Lodge, Goldney Hall, Mansion House Clifton, Priston Mill, Clearwell Castle, Eastwood Park, Great Tythe Barn, Hare and Hounds Westonbirt, Paintworks, Thornbury Castle, Wick Farm, plus many more.
