Hello, I’m Sue, a creative, independent florist based in beautiful Portishead on the North Somerset coast. I create stunning floral arrangements for lucky couples in Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire.
When I was a little girl I grew up with regular visits to local village shows and flower groups with my mum. The pride I saw on her face when she regularly won prizes ignited a passion in flowers within my heart. After a childhood consisting of vases, driftwood and pin holders I was soon following in my mum’s creative footsteps and replicating her love and passion for flowers and nature.
For 3 years, from 1990, I trained at Lackham Floristry College and was awarded 'Florist of the Year' for achievements in my second year. Now my floristry career had begun.
Working as a busy florist for the first ten years, I gained a great deal of valuable knowledge of the industry. In 2002 I branched out independently to specialise in all aspects of wedding flowers, including flowers for the bridal party and floral styling for your venue, selecting beautiful blooms in both colours and seasons, to create your desired theme.
Five years ago I moved to Portishead with my husband and we enjoy an amazing view out towards the Bristol Channel and beyond. It’s certainly a room with a view and such an inspiration watching the tides and seasons change and the incredible sunsets in the summer and autumn months. Nothing beats a great walk, foraging for unusual leaves and moss, and I am always on the lookout for a lovely vase with a vintage twist or a natural container to add a spot of character or theme to a floral display
