Our bespoke wedding proposals are perfect for those who want to be fully involved in the process. Your bespoke proposal will be put together after we have had an initial consultation to discuss all of your floral dream
We are also able to provide you with a proposal via email before discussing in more detail.
My love of flowers started at a young age with being involved with Young Farmers Competitions. In particular the Floral Art, which I won several times at County Level and also went onto National level to compete against Young Farmers from across the Country.
I trained at De Montfort University at the Riseholme Campus near Lincoln and gained a National Diploma in Floristry and then a Higher National Diploma in Floristry Management & Interior Styling.
I worked in London for a while. But missing the green fields of Leicestershire I came back to my home county and bought a flower shop which I owned for 6 years in the picturesque Rutland. I currently work from a workshop near Market Harborough concentrating more on the Wedding, Party and Sympathy side of floristry.
Inspired by my tiny, feisty, florist Grandma I have been passionate about flowers my entire life. Whilst training at Pulbrook and Gould in London many moons ago I unearthed a real love for beautiful flowers and free flowing composition, This amazing apprenticeship has enabled me to travel all over the world creating florals.
Now based in beautiful Rutland I flower weddings and parties all over the East Midlands. My ethos is based in a desire to make each bride and groom fulfil their dream day whilst embracing the seasons. I’m also a keen gardener and try to enhance my designs with the flowers & foliages I grow.
