So being in lockdown has given me time to reflect on life, Victoria Ivy and the journey I undertook over a year ago and the incredible experiences and people I have been so lucky to meet, work with and most of all learn from.

In May 2019, I made the trip down South to the home of Moss & Stone Floral Design , with the fabulous, and absolute inspiring Brigitte Girling. I spent two amazing days, talking about all things flowers, businesses, family life, whilst learning from a floral genius. We created the most beautiful pieces of floral design, which are some of my favourite works I have created to date, and the signature pieces of Victoria Ivy.

Brigittte was warm and welcoming, and shared a common love for talking mother nature and all she creates, in particular our love for British grown flowers. I was inspired, and through the time spent with Brigitte learnt new metods, refocused my designs and came away with a clear understanding of me, my business and the direction I was going in.

I’m lucky that Brigitte has been a huge support to me and my business, with her guidance, support and encouragement throughout my last year. I was scheduled to be reunited with this talented lady and teacher this April (2020), however due to current circumstances, we have had to place our date on hold, but look forward to rescheduling a new date with this special lady, creating and learning in my journey through Victoria Ivy.
