- ABOUT ME -
I'm Sophie - Style Director and Independent Florist at The Conservatory based in Devizes, Wiltshire.
As a self confessed flower fanatic, I adore roses, wild flowers, fresh scents and beautiful natural textures. Whenever possible I combine this with a vintage ingredient, from lace edged twine to a victorian teapot. Quite simply my style is rustic flowers with a vintage twist.
You'll often find me in my garden or at my canalside flowerpatch. I'm often joined by my two lovely kids (flower experts in their own right).
- Who I am (I am a florist) -
As an Independent Florist I run my business The Conservatory from home alongside also being a mum. For a long time I have been fascinated (ok obsessed by) flowers, trees and all things that grow. Nature is my passion, so becoming an Independent Florist in 2017 was a very natural step for me after spending over 10 years working as a teacher.
If you don’t know where I am, I’m outside in the garden talking to the bumble bees.
My natural style is rustic floristry with a vintage twist although I love experimenting with different flower styles and perfecting the latest floral trends alongside creating classic flower arrangements. I’m passionate about local products, home grown English roses and undulating foliage but my floral designs are completely led by the ideas of my customers.
I love nothing better than working closely with you to create a bespoke floral design built around your colour schemes, favourite scents, chosen blooms or seasonal themes. Whether you're dreaming of your perfect wedding day flowers or you want utterly unique table arrangements for a 70th Birthday party - I can create memorable, striking or simple-yet-beautiful floral displays.
Much of my inspiration comes from the bewitching Wiltshire countryside and my family’s flower patch and allotment. I work with fresh flowers sourced from a variety of highly skilled and reliable suppliers. I also grow many of the flowers I use myself which helps add warmth, originality and a unique quality to my arrangements.
