The cutting garden
I (Nichola) design and create unique arrangements using seasonal homegrown flowers for weddings and events in London, the South East and beyond. Having grown up in the Essex countryside and having been surrounded by family and friends who were talented gardeners with the most beautiful flower beds, it was inevitable I would be influenced by their flowery greatness. My background as a Creative Art Director gives a further appreciation and passion for design, colour, texture, and shape. This combined was the starting point for GroveFlora.
I love to create romantic, organic arrangements for weddings, events and bespoke bunches using seasonal produce where possible. I aim to combine these elements into designs to fulfil a brief and create something that is artistic, natural and romantic. I am continually inspired by nature; its varying shapes, textures and colours of each season.
As a small business, I offer a bespoke service enabling a me to get to know each client 1-1 before embarking on creating flowers that are truly special for your event. These will reflect you or your brand's personality and taste. their vision to life and compliment their own style. Just as each event and client is unique, so is each arrangement.
My service offers free 1-to-1 consultations, regular contact with you and delivery and installation set up on the day. Consultations are free. We'll start with the exchange of emails, followed up a a meeting that’s involves coffee and cake whilst we discuss your special day..
From your initial vision to the smallest detail and services I can provide, the aim is to keep the process friendly and communicative, creative and most of all fun, concluding in me capturing unique, romantic and beautiful designs for your special day. Brides can expect romantic and organically composed designs that will bring their vision to life and compliment their own style. Just as each event and client is unique, so is each arrangement.
I work in collaboration with you to design the floral elements for your wedding day or special event. Produce used will be considered carefully for you and will come from my own cutting garden in Peckham (or my 94yr old Grandads garden if supplies run short), the flower market in cooler months or foraged form the Essex coastline or hedgerows. I offer anything from exquisite bridal bouquets, finished with naturally-died silk ribbons, to delicate buttonholes and artistic installations.
