What about your business are you most proud of?
Each wedding takes all my attention, love and creative spirit. I am proud of providing a truly bespoke service. I care about every aspect of the flowers, I consider every arrangement and bouquet as a piece of art. The connection with the bride is one of the most important things to me. I like to know who she is, and get a feeling of what is important for her. I will then create a design to fulfil her dreams.
