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.. scrap booking, painting, card making to name a few. It wasn't until a friend asked me to design some flower bouquets for her that I realised there was no other creative outlet that would give me the satisfaction 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 local village and set up shop there for 2 years. I met some wonderful customers, and indeed many became friends.
It wasn't 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 few 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.
So today, you will find me among the flowers, in my studio. If you like my flowers, then get in touch and hopefully we can work together.
