The Flower Cottage is in Kent, where I was born and have lived all my life. A love of all things flowery has lead to the creation of The Flower Cottage. It began with evening classes, followed by many happy hours devouring beautiful images of flowers in books and on the internet, further courses, including at the really inspirational Sussex Flower School, and I was ready and very determined to set up my own business as a wedding and event florist.
I truly derive great pleasure from being a part of someone's special event, and I really believe that fresh flowers are one of the great joys of life, bringing happiness and creating an atmosphere that always lifts the mood.
I have a particular love of cottage garden flowers and am always drawn to flower arrangements with a bit of a wild style! Seasonal flowers, locally sourced are always my favourite kind - I believe that inspiration comes from the changing seasons and the beautiful countryside that surrounds us in Kent.
I'm never happier than when pottering around, experimenting with designs and foraging for materials in my garden.
