Suzanne studied Floral Design at The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers in Central London and now runs her own specialist wedding and event business from her  rural studio in North Hertfordshire. 

 

By choosing to include flowers and foliage in our celebrations we are choosing to celebrate the beauty of these stunning natural resources and I strongly believe that there should be no negative impact on our treasured planet. My approach to floral design - be it a large wedding or a small event - is always to look at a sustainable approach as well as the beauty nature can provide.

I have always loved flowers, and when I studied at Wimbledon School of Art, I decided to specialise in fashion and textiles, with flowers and nature having a huge influence on my designs.

Later on, when I trained as a florist at Shuttleworth College; I knew immediately I wanted to work within the wedding flower industry, deciding it was sensible to gain as much experience as possible, whilst perfecting my style.

My experience working within retail floristry over the next 6 years was invaluable - learning the trade from all aspects.
