My floristry journey started almost by accident when a close friend asked me to dress her new show room with flowers ready for her big opening night. Having only ever prepared floral arrangements for my home and for family I was pretty daunted but decided that I’d give it a go, and after numerous encouraging comments and compliments, I thought, I could be on to something! Shortly thereafter I was approached by some local restaurants to provide displays for their eateries and my love of all things floral grew from there.
Whimsical, tumbling displays, the larger the better is what I love to do best, with what I can find on the headland as well as using traditional country style flowers, to create something a little different. I decided to learn more about my craft and enrolled on an intensive floristry course at the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers in which I learnt so much, and then onto tallulah rose flower school in the lake district.
With weddings and numerous events booked in, this is going to be a busy and exciting year for me…’
