Background

From a young age I was always in the garden, watching the seasons slowly work their magic through the year. This lead me to work as a gardener and train as a garden designer, which was my job for ten years.

I had never considered floristry until, in 2015, my friend got married. I casually asked her who was doing her flowers, and she replied that I was, because I ‘knew about that stuff’. A stint in a London florists and a City and Guilds later I haven’t looked back and love working with plants and flowers in such a creative way, a natural progression from designing spaces.

The Flower Press

I have always loved all things botanical and floral and part of this is a fascination with the beauty of pressed and dried flowers, that the essence of the plant can be preserved and kept forever.

I started playing around with different methods of preserving flowers, from traditional hanging and pressing to making my own natural petal confetti. From this the Flower Press was born, a celebration of all things on the wild and quirky side.

Our Style

At the flower press we offer quirky style, pared with rustic and wild arrangements, inspired by our hedgerows and meadows and the changing seasons. produce arrangements that stand out from the crowd and are individual to you and your needs. This ethos applies to our weddings and events and to our gift bouquets that we deliver personally in and around Truro, Cornwall.

Thank you for supporting small and local.
