Keepsakes, Bridal Floristry, Art

The floral pieces I create began when I dried a friends wedding bouquet and arranged the dried flowers under a glass dome. The idea grew fairly rapidly and I have been inundated with bridal domes and frames ever since. With a choice from small glass domes and box frames up to larger sized pieces and multiples, there is really no limit on what we can produce. I have worked with brides who want to keep their flowers for themselves, and also bridal parties who want to preserve their flowers and create multiple pieces as thank you gifts for bridemaids and family members. I can't bare the idea of all the beautiful fresh flowers going in the bin after the big day, so much beauty (and money!), when they can live on, and what better way to remind you of the big day itself.

I am passionate about recycling and reusing, we need to take better care of the earth we live on. In my personal projects and commission work, I reuse where ever possible, there is something rewarding about the process. I am an avid gardener and grow lots of flowers in my garden space, which I cut and dry in the studio and go on to use them in my work. The whole process feels very organic and is vital to the outcome. 

I have spent time training with different taxidemists, the latest was last year where I was lucky enough to spend 3 days with Carl Church (world champion in taxidermy). I still view myself as learning this highly skilled craft, but from the very first lesson I had, the vision has remained the same. I always imagined animals sleeping or poised amongst beautiful habitats of flowers, and that is still my vision today. I am inspired by the Victorian period as well as having ethereal fairytale-esque ideas which I love to naturally follow and allow the end project to reveal itself during the process. 

I have worked on tiny boxed commissions, right the way up to large scale pieces with mixed taxidermy and florals. Please have a look at my portfolio and feel free to get in touch if you have any queries.

I also offer full wedding flower packages, limited only by the imagination, including floral archways, ceiling clouds, wedding party flowers, table and chair decorations and more. For more information on this please contact me directly so that we may discuss your personal requirements.
