Rustic, natural and unique floral design
I originally started my working life in a corporate environment, but couldn't shake off the feeling that I needed to explore my life-long love of all things floral. I made the decision to retrain as a florist and attended North Herts College in 2014 and 2015 to gain City & Guilds Level 1 and 2 floristry qualifications.
I established my own floristry business following this and my passion for all things floral has continued to blossom ever since. I still regularly attend a variety of professional and leisure courses in floristry to keep up with industry trends and ensure that I always offer my clients the very best floral arrangements. I work hard to be as sustainable as possible, eliminating floral foam where possible and using local flower farms.
In 2020, I re-branded and said goodbye to my original business name, Blossom and Bramble. The launch of Wild Sapphire reflected a change in direction as I focused my offering on creating wedding flowers and unique floral gifts.
From humble roots…
For me, there is no better place to be than surrounded by beautiful blooms, both in my studio and outside in the Great British countryside. As a child I was fascinated by my grandparent’s penchant for gardening, and spent many of my formative years watching them tend to their gardens during my visits. I fell completely in love with the way that outdoor spaces were transformed into a riot of colour and how they would evolve as the seasons changed before us.

The great outdoors...
To this day, I adore spending as much time outdoors as possible and this heavily influences my floral design style. From the quintessentially British rolling hills and fields that stretch out as far as the eye can see, to the stunning bays and sandy beaches that hug our coastline, nothing beats time spent out of doors for me. It is the natural contrast of lush green fields, dense dark woodlands, brightly coloured wildflowers and shimmering coastlines that inspires me to create botanical arrangements that really do bring the outside in. Being based in the beautiful market town of Olney, Buckinghamshire provides an ideal source of inspiration as it is surrounded by miles of countryside and gorgeous landscapes.
