In July I flew to Manchester for a few days to meet floral designer Fiona who runs Firenza Floral Designer (she was listed by the Telegraph as one of the 20 top florist in the country). I’ve been following her work and I like very much her style, so I decided to have a one to one workshop.
It was a beautiful sunny day when I met Fiona surrounded by her dogs in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. We chatted in her romantic, peaceful garden and it was hugely inspirational to compare our styles. We both discovered that our main source of inspiration came from nature.
Als she showed me how to create one of her unique bouquets, I felt elated at designing something so different to my usual style.
With the same flowers we both made completely different creations.
Over lunch in the sunny garden I got to know Holly an incredible photographer who took some beautiful photos of the day.
What do you do to find inspiration?
