Why floristry..? As a young girl the colour, fragrance and beauty of a florist's enchanted me. A few years later, now as the owner of Flower Boutique, I enjoy using my creativity on a daily basis, a pleasure to walk into work each morning, helping to put a smile on people's faces through the pure beauty of flowers.
What's your favourite bloom..? A tulip named 'Denise'; as a bud the colour is white with a pink fleck but as it blooms they transform into being pink infused with a touch of white exposing a deep blue centre. It is stunning and so fascinating to watch its transformation.
Describe your style... Individual and creative, a mix of modern yet traditional. I aim to produce arrangements to suit all people's needs and requirements, all challenges accepted!
What are the key trends for 2014..? This year 'country' style is popular for weddings, with brides often choosing the natural look. However, customers' choices of flowers are many and varied, at Flower Boutique we aim to cater for all.
