“I grew up in Bristol surrounded by pretty petals with my mum being a trained florist, always filling the house with beautiful blooms and both of my grandfather’s keen gardeners. From a young age I remember feeling so uplifted, free and happy when being around flowers and in the garden. As I got older, I used to dream of being a florist but as many did, I followed the more academic route studying and working in fashion marketing for many years before finally leaving it all and travelling the world. Travel completely inspired me to follow my dreams and I retrained in floristry when returning home to Bristol.
In 2018 Isabloom Floral Design was founded and I have never looked back. My intimate flower studio nestled in the countryside on the outskirts of Bristol is my little haven where I create floral designs for your every need including; occasion and gift bouquets, weddings, funerals, events, installations, corporate, home décor etc. Although Bristol based, I also cover Bath, Somerset, Cotswolds and Gloucestershire.
My style draws inspiration from nature itself with a bohemian edge. Every design is very unique and is created with the client in mind and their individual style. I often like to combine a mixture of fresh flowers with a few dried stems. Nothing I create will ever feel unnatural. I also love to work with both indoor and outdoor plants and love to learn something new about them every day as my knowledge on this field grows.
I source only seasonal flowers and try to buy locally grown where I can. I will only purchase the highest quality blooms as it is very important to me to retain a certain standard within my work.
The environment is very important to me and is something that I am very conscious of at Isabloom Floral Design. Sadly, the flower industry creates a lot of plastic waste, so I keep all of my packaging 100% recyclable and will only use biodegradable floral foam when it is absolutely necessary.”

As one of our suppliers, we could not recommend Isabloom Floral Designs more highly, we had the pleasure of being gifted one of her bouquets for a photoshoot at Clifton College and it was truly stunning. Please view our ‘Photoshoot at Clifton’ blog post for images.
