I established Sakura in 2014, after several years of learning the trade working in busy flower shops. I worked hard to learn all aspects of floristry, but realised that I wanted freedom to make my own design decisions and I soon began working from my home studio, creating gift bouquets for local customers.
After a short, but epic wedding course at Tallulah Rose Flower School, I was inspired to focus more on weddings and events, and began creating bridal and venue flowers for my clients. Meeting like minded florists, flower growers and other suppliers in the trade, really cemented my passion for wedding and event work. Since then I have returned to Tallulah Rose to focus my studies on sustainability and natural design mechanics, and continue to work as naturally and plastic free as possible.
Over the past 10 years I have been refining and perfecting my style. I find inspiration in light, movement and all the colours of nature. The arrangements I enjoy making are lush and bountiful with plenty of movement and life. I carefully select the highest quality flowers to use in my displays, and my decisions are made consciously and sustainably.
Over the years, my wedding portfolio has grown, meeting wonderful couples and fellow suppliers along the way, and visited some beautiful venues across the north east of Scotland and sometimes further afield.
