My journey with Sakura started back in 2014. I had a young daughter and realised I didn't want to go back to working full time in a flower shop that was over an hour commute away. But, I also had the creative itch that during those first few months after she was born manifested itself into me trying way too many different crafting hobbies.. scrapbooking, painting, card making to name a few. It wasn't until a friend asked me to design some flower bouqets for her that I realised there was no other creative outlet that would give me the satifaction and buzz that working with flowers did.
So I set up my own business, working around my home life and taking Ellie with me wherever I went. I was fortunate to find a lovely small vacant shop in the loal village and set up shop there for 2 years. I met some wonderful customers, and indeed many became friends. It wasnt until I was expecting my second child that I realised my absolute passion for wedding work. Since then, I have worked from my home studio, my artistic space where I work on wedding, event and funeral pieces. Over the last couple of years, my wedding portfolio has grown, meeting wonderful couples and fellow suppliers along the way, and visited some beautiful venues accross the north east of Scotland and sometimes further afield. In November 2018 I was a finalist in The Top Tier Wedding awards. To be nominated by my own clients for the awards cemented my passion and drive to continue to grow my business.
So today, you will find me amongst the flowers, in my studio. If you like my flowers, then get in touch and hopefully we can work together.
