VICTORIA LOVES

I would like to use this space to mention the inspirational individuals I have crossed paths with on my flower journey; all of whom have helped me grown Victoria Ivy into what you see today.

Who?
Olivia

Olivia is an absolute sweetheart and someone I have thoroughly loved working with. Her ability to understand my brand, my vision and me, then weave this into a beautiful story, is beyond amazing. Olivia is truly and firmly part of the Victoria Ivy family.

Who?
Amy

What?
Ambience Venue Styling Harrogate & North Yorkshire

Why?
An absolute style goddess! I was lucky to work with Amy on my second styled shoot at the utterly stunning Hooton Pagnell Hall, and have since worked on several shoots. Likewise, we have showcased together at luxury wedding open events. I love pencilling and storyboarding ideas with Amy and then bringing these to life.

Why?
Helen as become the official photographer of Victoria Ivy. From my first phone call with Helen, to on the day capturing – Helen has it all. A clear understanding of me, Victoria Ivy and what I am looking to achieve. Helen’s talent captures the most beautiful imagery, which reflects the true nature of me and Victoria Ivy. She is also a firm family favourite especially with the munchkins.

Early on in this crazy journey, I met Ella over a good Yorkshire cuppa, we discussed all things weddings, florals and our love for what we do.  Ella and the team at Hooton Pagnell Hall gave me the opportunity to become one of their recommended suppliers – quite simply, special team, special venue.
