AS SEEN IN

HOUSE & GARDEN

A B O U T    M E

 

 

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved beautiful things, always have, always will. I see beauty in so much or I live with rose-tinted spectacles as my mother would say. 

 

My childhood was spent growing up in a little village in the hills of the English countryside, surrounded by fields and gardens.

As children, my sisters and I would pick flowers and grasses to bring home to decorate the supper table. This ritual hasn’t changed.

I’m from a creative family, my grandfather was an architect, my grandmother a Constance Spry Flower School graduate and a talented painter, my mother a garden designer, who always taught me to ‘look up’ when out walking. And thank goodness she did, this is how to find the extra special pieces that can completely transform arrangements.

I love each season and seeing how things grow and change throughout the year. Each seasonal shift encourages me to focus on the different tones, textures and shapes it brings.

Over the years, I’ve developed a romantic style. I love to create naturally loose shapes that are light and delicate. Floaty bouquets of streaming silk ribbons, wispy arrangements designed with fruits like old oil paintings and ethereal installations sprawling through rooms are some of my favourites to make.

We offer a range of different workshops throughout the year. Our classes are for everyone, we encourage all abilities, whether you're just beginning your career in floristry, you'd like to develop a new skill or you just fancy a day of flowers, we welcome you all and with a range of different people, our classes are always the most creative of places.

 

With an array of beautiful seasonal flowers and foraged foliage, stunning vessels and antique ceramics and a room brimming full of ideas, I love seeing what the outcomes are. Everyone creates something different, develops their personal style or learns new techniques and leaves with armfuls of flowers. It’s always such a joy for me.

 

Over the years, I've developed and refined my process and adapted various foam-free techniques that I'd love to share with you, as well as my knowledge of flowers, my design process and styling background.

We host our classes in two stunning locations. Our London classes are held at the beautiful old Georgian Bell House in Dulwich, London and our country classes are held at our studio in West Kington Wick, a little Cotswold village just outside of Bath and very close to the charming village of Castle Combe.

I so look forward to welcoming you to our Flower School!

We use the most luxurious ingredients from local growers, specifically selected from the flower market, foraged from the Cotswold hedgerows and picked especially for weddings from our little family-run cutting garden. These ingredients are transformed with our timeless style into our distinctive arrangements.

 

From your initial vision to the fine detail and installation we provide a polished yet natural and friendly service with a communicative approach. Together, we will create a beautifully coherent and luxuriously styled wedding.
