Meet Nicola

Your Oxfordshire Wedding Florist

I’ve always loved flowers – picking them, arranging them, admiring them.  Whether a gathered posy of humble buttercups or a bowl of garden roses, their fragility and beauty have, in my eyes, the power to bring smiles to faces and enliven any room.

My career in floral design started with lots of seed packets and a longing to have armfuls of real flowers in my garden that I could cut and bring inside. I was good at growing flowers and quickly had so many that I started to sell bunches from my garden gate.

I was so excited therefore when one day I was approached to create the flowers for a local wedding. It was a huge affair and difficult work but the flowers were a big success. I soon found myself with many more bookings.

In 2011, I followed my passion and founded Foxgloves and Roses.  Although I don’t have the time or space to grow the large number of flowers I use now, I remain passionate about creating floral designs that have the same joyous, natural, charming aliveness as flowers growing happily together in a garden.

Recommended Supplier and Trusted Floral Designer

Within a few months of opening my doors for business, Foxgloves and Roses was nominated for the Hitched Best New Florist Award, and then again in 2013. My floral creations have also been featured widely in magazines and wedding blogs.

The ultimate acknowledgement of my talent and hard work came when Foxgloves and Roses became a recommended supplier to Blenheim Palace, Ardington House, Caswell House and Stowe.  In the latest chapter Foxgloves and Roses was shortlisted for the Best UK Wedding Florist 2017 award.

All of these achievements are things I could’ve only imagined as I pored over seed catalogues and dreamt of flowers. More importantly, it has been my delight to share the gladness that flowers give with so many people.

Happily married to my high school sweetheart, I love to giggle with my children, walk in the countryside with our two spaniels, Bram and Betsy, and spend time on my yoga mat.

Celebrating love with joyous florals
