About Designer Flowers
My career in floristry began in 1995 when I started working for a small independent florist. After six months I realised how much I enjoyed floristry and was encouraged by my manager to go to college to gain a qualification.
I became fully qualified in 1998. It was at this point that I decided I wanted to move away from typical day to day floristry and continue my career in London. I was taken on as a member of the floristry team at the BBC Television Centre. This was a great opportunity for me and with this I became more confident and proud of the work I was producing.
After two years with the BBC I moved on to the City, and spent two years doing traditional floristry for banks, offices and shops.
In 2001 I was ready for a new challenge. I joined a new business called In Water, based in London. At the time, this was the most contemporary florist to work for and is currently one of the top florists in London. After three years I became the senior florist. In Water was another great opportunity for me, as my work was displayed in top establishments such as the Ivy restaurant and the Tate Modern.
I established Designer Flowers Essex in 2005 and after nine busy years trading, we now have our own studio in Bulphan near Brentwood. This allows us to concentrate on weddings and events without the day to day interruptions of a florist shop.
We now have a team of four and work with a large number of venues, and have become recommended supplier for many of them. We have built up a good reputation and have received lots of positive feedback from our clients which you can see on our social media sites.
We also became one of three finalists in the Essex Wedding Awards 2013 and we have high hopes to progress to the 2014 winners! In 2015/16 we are hoping to open our new studio and expand into north Essex covering a greater area.
