ABOUT

Hi, I’m Hannah: creative florist, British flowers enthusiast,
people person, wild at heart.

My Story With British Flowers…

Bride and Bloom was born from a love of the English countryside, a fortuitous move out of the Big Smoke, and a desire to share my creativity with others in a way that makes them smile.

In lots of ways, you could credit my start in floristry to the pages of Stylist magazine. You know those interviews where people make gutsy career changes to follow their dreams?

Every time I read about someone taking the plunge, I thought ‘I should do that too’.

A Leap of Faith

I’d designed and arranged the table flowers for my own wedding a few years earlier, and despite having a successful career in the fashion industry, I couldn’t get flowers out of my brain.

When I was pregnant with my daughter in 2013, I decided that the little floral voice in my head needed to be listened to, and enrolled at the renowned Covent Garden Academy of Flowers to see where this new path might lead.

Olive arrived, and while she was tiny I would strap her to me in the carrier and take the tube to the New Covent Garden Flower Market to practise and hone my floral style, creating my first arrangements on the kitchen table of our tiny London flat.

A short while later, in 2014, my husband and I moved our little family out of the city and into the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. Being surrounded by so much gorgeous green space made me truly happy, and opened my eyes to the amazing variety of British flowers and wildflowers that could be incorporated into my work.

I soon discovered the hashtag #britishflowerhour on Twitter, and started to build a network of like-minded florist and grower friends. The British flowers community is a warm-hearted, welcoming and passionate one, and the knowledge and guidance of the growers I’ve come to know and love has definitely shaped Bride and Bloom into the business it is today. I am now a keen member of Flowers from the Farm, an award

Am I The Right Florist For You?

It’s so important that you choose a florist who shares your vision and who you click with and can have fun with on your floral design adventure together. If you read the following section and think ‘yep, that sounds like what we want’, then I’m confident we’ll be a great fit for each other.

  • Designs made with 100% British flowers and foliage’s all year round.

    This means your flowers will be led by what’s in season rather than what’s on Pinterest. There will be certain varietals that we won’t be able to use. But every last characterful blossom and bloom will be at its best and brightest, ready to be woven into your natural and wild designs.

  • An eco-conscious approach to your event.

    Using British flowers certainly cuts down on the carbon footprint of Bride and Bloom, but I strive to be as sustainable as I can be in all areas of my business. This means no floral foam, no single-use plastic and getting creative with the mechanics behind all my installations to make them as planet-friendly as I can, without ever compromising on style.

  • Having a detail-focused creative in your corner

    I love getting to know my couples and clients, and pride myself on being able to translate your personal style into textured, layered, natural and beautiful designs. From the smallest buttonhole to the grandest most sweeping backdrop or hanging installation, the level of care and detail you get from me is the same.

  • No-nonsense, down to earth guidance from start to finish

    The world of large-scale event flowers is a beautiful one, but it can feel confusing too. I’ll take you through every step – educating you about the gorgeous flowers that are in season, and making sure I’m available to answer any questions you may have.
