About Your Local Florist
A potted history
I started working as a florist way back in 1989 and attended North Tyneside college for 3 years to gain my qualifications. Having worked in the industry for almost 30 years, I've dressed many of the venues in the North East, including Alnwick castle, Le Petit Chateau, Newton Hall, Eshott Hall as well as many marquees, barn venues and tipis, and absolutely thrilled to be recently awarded a gold badge of excellence from the Bridebook awards! While still working in floristry, I taught flower arranging classes for a number of years and enjoy demonstrating for clubs and events from time to time. After all these years I'm still as passionate about flowers and and floristry as I was back then. I currently have a home workshop and love nothing better than to bring my clients visions to life, whether it be a large wedding in a castle or a bouquet of flowers for a birthday. I love it all!
