We were so lucky with the weather when team Jo Malone London visited. We picked flowers on the farm, made glorious flower crowns, swanned around the most fabulous Belcombe and ate delicious food cooked by Beth The Free Range Chef.
Team Jo Malone London were a blast!

As RHS London Floral Artist in Residence 2017, Fiona gets to do three installations in the Horticultural Halls behind Victoria. This was the first one in Lawrence Hall from 13th - 15th February 2017.
We created a 3m x 3m Anatomical Heart for Valentines Day using Somerset willow and Cornus. We used basketry techniques to make the giant structure. The blood drops surrounding the heart were created using 600 British grown Cyclamen planted in moss Kokadma.
Our second RHS installation was in Linley Hall from 27th - 29th March 2017.
We made an 8m Floral Wave using Somerset willow and bamboo covered in foraged foliage and studded with spring flowers, Narcissi, Tulip, Ranunculus and Hyacinth all grown on our Farm near Bath.
The third installation was in RHS Cardiff from 7th April - 9th April 2017.
We designed a Welsh themed Floral Song to be shown in the three Pure Greenhouses.
We used Somerset willow again for the structure and “flowered it up” with our British grown spring flowers including Narcissi, Tulip and Ranunculus. Thousands of visitors to the show enjoyed our fresh flower creation.
Our fourth and final installation as RHS Floral Artist in Residence 2017 was the Autumn Show at Lawrence Hall in London on 25th & 26th October.
We created a large vertical mandala for the foyer at Lawrence Hall as well as a number of mini mandalas outside the event enticing visitors to come and see the show!
Using seasonal flowers grown by Bayntun Flowers and Electric Daisy Flower Farm, we created a 6m hanging garden for the ceiling of the marquee. A 3m floral ring was suspended above the moss covered bar.
“Thank you so much to you guys for all of the insanely cool and beautiful flowers. They completely tied the wedding together and turned it from looking like a slightly wacky kaleidoscope of madness and crepe paper into more like a choregraphed intentional madness!”

Renata and James married in July 2016. The brief was colourful, wild and bohemian. We loved creating the stunning flower crowns.

‘Thank you so so so much for the beautiful flowers at the wedding they were more beautiful than I ever could have imagined! Made me feel proper like a bride.’
“A huge thank you for the beautiful flowers that really made our wedding celebrations absolutely perfect.”
“A huge thank you for the beautiful flowers that you gathered for our wedding in October. We loved all the different bouquets - particularly the gorgeous dahlias and the fragrant herbs. The buttonholes were mini works of art. All the guests noticed the creativity involved, and loved the natural feel of the arrangements.”
“I just wanted to write and say a huge thank you for the amazing work you did for our wedding. The flowers were incredible and totally surpassed expectations - especially my bouquet. Most of the cut flowers were bunched up and taken home by guests at the end too, they were really lovely.”
‘Thank you again for the beautiful flowers for our wedding. I am sending you some pictures so that you can see how they looked.’

‘We were thrilled with the flowers that Fiona lovingly grew, gathered and arranged on the day but we also thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the farm earlier in the year. Honestly, the bouquets for myself and the girls were utterly stunning and looked as if they had just been scooped up from the garden moments before, exactly what we’d hoped for.’

‘My wedding flowers were so important to me, I had dreamt of them since I was a little girl… Fiona and her team listened all my ideas and made my perfect nordic flower crown a reality. The berries for the bridesmaid were also just beautiful!’
