After many years in the advertising and media industry, I decided to follow another creative passion in life and trained as a floral designer; gaining experience with some of London and Brighton's best florists. I recently relocated to Truro in Cornwall and now cover the South West of England. Your flowers should reflect you both as a couple so I take the time to get to know you. How you met, your lifestyle, what makes you tick... You're my inspiration after all. I adore my job and get excited about every wedding I work on! I guide you through the whole process and make suggestions on how we can maximise your budget; using high quality, seasonal and interesting flowers to create striking and unique floral designs for your special day. I aim to use local and British flowers wherever possible. Any imports are sourced from Fairtrade farms. I cover venues in Cornwall and the South West of England. If you're a little further afield, let's chat. I'm sure we can work something out.

What is your most memorable wedding?
One of the first weddings I did. The couple were such fun to work with and wanted the flowers to reflect their big personalities and love of rock. The bride wore a bright red petticoat under a tea-length 50s dress. The flowers were a striking collection of bright blooms in every colour!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Inspired, bespoke, creative, friendly, blooming marvellous!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We’ll have a quick chat over the phone / skype first to check the date and a few details. It’s just a chance to ask each other a few initial questions and get a consultation (aka a good chat over a drink!) booked in. At our first meeting it’s all about getting to know each other and for me to find out more about your day, the venue, your likes, ideas, needs and so on. We can take a look at your inspiration and any Pinterest boards you’ve created. If we can meet at the venue then even better! I’ll then use the details and inspiration to draft a proposal. This can be tweaked until you are happy with it and I will then ask for a deposit. I’ll check in with you and we’ll have a final meeting closer to the date.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
It’s always nice to give flowers away to your guests (removed from any hired containers!). Alternatively I am happy to collect them and pass them onto my local retirement home for everyone their to enjoy.
