Brought up in a family of fruit and flower growers in southern France, I was privileged to spend glorious springs, summers and autumns roaming among orchards picking the most succulent cherries, peaches, apples and pears and playing hide and seek in fragrant field of lavenders (and getting stung by bees!!). I have vivid memories of accompanying my grand-father to wholesale markets in his Citroen van as the sun was rising over the horizon. In the studio I use the very same wooden crates bearing my family name that we took to market filled to the brim with fruits and flowers.
Moving to Paris and then to England meant that I followed a different career path, but still spending every free hour growing flowers, nurturing a passion for roses and falling in love with mid-summer English gardens. So it must have been written in the stars that I would eventually return to my roots and go back to what is deeply engrained in me: nature and flowers. Spells in leading floristry schools have honed my skills further and deepened my passion for floristry.
My floral style combines quintessential English gardens with French elegance to create bespoke designs. I use beautiful English and French scented roses profusely, sourced from the most reputable growers that create the most beautiful wedding bouquets & centerpieces.
My love and respect of nature and the environment means that where possible I endeavour to use seasonal flowers sourced from specialist British flower growers. I also source Lavender directly from producers in Provence. I love using luxurious velvet ribbons and hand-dyed silk ribbons crafted by French and by British artisans.
Having married recently, I understand only too well the importance of having the confidence that your special day will be enhanced by the most stunning flowers.
It would be my and my team’s pleasure to work with you to create bespoke and stunning flower designs to transform your special occasion into something distinctively yours.
