My floral career started when I ran a flower stall in Somerset when I was 19. I had been working there for about two weeks when the guy who owned it said he wanted a break and did I want to run it? Without a thought, (or a whole lot of skills), I said yes immediately, (anyone else miss their self assured 19 year old self?).
I’m so glad I had that experience, as it started my love for floristry.
My love of flowers came from my Mum. She was the most creative person I know, and loved flowers and passed that love on to me, along with so much more.
After university, I worked in Journalism, Comedy and Television Production, but as fun as those jobs were, I was missing the pure joy I got from flowers. So here I am, many years later, getting the absolute privilege of designing people’s weddings.
I grew up in the beautiful Somerset countryside and it’s still at the core of who I am. Wherever possible I like to use locally grown / British grown flowers and working within a brief that’s dictated by the seasons.
I live in Twickenham with my husband and my dog, Wesley, who quite frankly is the boss of me and why he gets such a big picture.
