Today I'd like to introduce you to Florist in the Forest, one of our newest sponsors, who creates magic with flowers.
Nature is Katherine's biggest inspiration - preferring to let the flowers speak for themselves. She focuses on combining different textures and shapes, the all important fragrance and working with the seasons.
"I have always taken the more creative path (obviously always destined to become a Mrs Craft!). Having studied at Art college I went on to do a degree in Textile Design, which after a travelling stint, lead me to the role of Visual Merchandiser for a fashion retailer. However my country roots eventually pulled me back and I decided to go back to college and re-train in floristry.
I have always had a love of flowers and nature and now combine this with my textile love of colour and texture.
I also have green fingers and this had led to a cutting garden adjacent to my studio, which literally is in a forest! I love to grow a wide range of English cottage garden favourites, such as, sweet peas, nigella, delphiniums, scabious, dahlias to name a few, as well as lots of scented herbs and foliage. These help create the natural country style that I have become known for."
Katherine is exhibiting at the wedding fair at The George in Rye in East Sussex, and would love to meet new brides to chat all things flowers, so pop the 21st October in your diary.
Katherine's also been shortlisted for the hitched breakthrough award for best wedding florist. If you'd like to vote, please click through to this link - http://www.hitched.co.uk/HBA/voting.aspx
Katherine is based on the Kent and East Sussex border, close to Tunbridge Wells and the village of Groombridge. Many of the flowers Katherine uses in her work are grown in the cutting garden adjacent to the Florist in the Forest studio in the beautiful surroundings of Broadwater Forest.
