My history with flowers goes back decades to my mother’s collections of roses and my Grandfathers Chrysanthemums. I was chief wildflower and grasses gatherer for the many arrangements my mother used to inspire her loom wall hangings and knitwear pieces. By the time I had discovered my love for designing wedding dresses in the North of England I recognised how much flowers were embedded in all the work I did, whether hand painting, embroidering or sculpting silk fabrics in couture wedding dresses. Our clients were very soon asking for unique bouquets to match their dresses and part of our design emporium became dedicated to flower art.
After moving to the Roseland peninsula in Cornwall I now focus solely on my flower work and having gained an incredible garden I grow small batches of flowers and herbs to mix into my displays. Other reserves will come from the seasonal flower growers close to my door and some seasonal imported roses and more exotic requirements whenever it is realistically needed. That is the nature of floristry - variety of produce is not a bad phrase and all growers across the world have the right to earn a good wage and sustainably flourish. I use environmentally friendly products and am known for my fierce dependence on recycling. Many years ago, I set out to rekindle the joy of dried flowers, a trending journey that many florists have now joined me on. These I dry at my workshop/cottage although for there to be sufficient quantities for a large wedding, bookings need to be secured at least 6 months in advance.
We are voyeurs of the flower, no two are ever purely the same and their shades, scents and form are the envy of every imaginative soul. Reimagining natures displays is a challenge for every florist and that is the joy for me and my flower art. My skills and experience are based in natural creations where also the venue, theme and emotions of the day are key elements to how your flowers and materials will be sourced and worked into an array of inspired displays – whatever size event you’re planning on. My floral arrangements need to have a narrative: romance, precedence, celebratory, or symbolising a life lived. Beautiful flowers and all the splendour of foliage are ensembles that delight the senses and tell us of fairy tales from forests, the romance of the garden and the mystical magic of coastlines.
Kyla brought my dreams to a reality for my wedding day. In fact my wishes were surpassed! The most gorgeous wedding flowers, hairpieces and a bespoke jacket, were hand delivered to me on the morning of my big day. I had shared with Kayla my vision of a Peter Pan, magical wedding and she took my ideas and added her amazing, imaginative, creative flare. Wow, Wow, Wow! She really took the time to get to know me and our dream and designed the perfect show stopping bouquets, button holes, corsages and hairpieces. Each were individualised and totally bespoke and unique. She really "got" us! This wonderful woman also created a gorgeous bespoke jacket that suited the theme, my dress and me, perfectly. My reworked, vintage little jacket is a piece of art and I will treasure it always. Thank you for making my day even more awesome and for being a very talented and creative artist. If you are looking for someone to bring your wedding dreams to reality, look no further. The creative talents of this artist are second to none! You will not be disappointed. And to top it all, she is a absolutely lovely woman! Go on, send her a message....you will not regret it !
Kyla was the best find of the whole wedding! She resized my wedding dress and made sure it fit perfectly, made me a veil and prepared all of our wedding flowers including bouquets, buttonholes, corsages, registrars display and decorated the arbour which took hours to put up! Everything was beautiful. Nothing was too much trouble for Kyla, she was so friendly but professional too! I would highly recommend her for florist or seamstress.
Kyla is an absolutely amazing lady! She was so so helpful and such a perfectionist, fixing not only one, but two dresses for me. She is a very talented lady and also did our flowers for our wedding. She went above and beyond our expectations, creating beautiful bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids. I would highly recommend her!
