It was such a huge pleasure to welcome Faith of 'Finishing Touches by Faith Gurel' to the studio for a one-to-one. Faith is based in Essex and an absolute superstar florist. Get in touch with her if you are getting married in her neck of the woods and want the best of the best!
We had some lovely stuff to work with and Faith created a beautiful springy urn and a really flower heavy and wild bouquet. In the afternoon we created a larger installation - a hanging chandelier which I somehow wrestled into a tree for Jo to photograph! The workshop was in early March meaning there wasn't a huge amount of British flowers about but I was thrilled to get my hands on some homegrown tulips, narcissi and hellebores. One of the perks of being first through the door at the market and over to Pratley's!
Other than the flowers, it was genuinely just so fab having someone to chat to for a whole day and to get to know Faith properly. We had so much fun exchanging wedding tales, flowery gossip and comparing notes on our businesses. Faith is so warm and generous and gave such great advice about managing a business alongside a family. All of her friends and family are so lucky to have her on their team - as I am sure they are aware! Also, she spoiled Matilda and so is welcome back any time.
