Kate Parrott (AKA Polly)

HEAD FLORIST

Having always been creative at heart, Kate became a florist as she loves exploring colours, textures and shapes, and is passionate about inspiring joy with her designs.

Kate is a self-trained florist with a history working with a high-profile London Florist and most recently running her own business specialising in large scale installations.

Now, Kate is bringing Hanako’s intimate floral experiences to life, designing bespoke, individual creations that inspire lifelong memories.

While flowers bring Laura plenty of joy, knowing that her creations can bring others joy is a feeling that nothing else can beat.

So, following her passion, Laura trained with Tallulah Rose Floristry School in 2018 and has been working with weddings and events ever since, creating statement arrangements to accent life’s most special moments.

Laura loves being around flowers every day, and she’s looking forward to creating your perfect arrangement.

Fiona Nicholls

After a flower-filled wedding, Fiona fell head over heels with the splendour of flowers.

After training to become a florist, Fiona began creating and delivering magical bouquets for her local area.

Fiona loves that no two flower creations are the same and is passionate about using the natural shapes of foliage and flowers to curate unique bouquets that are packed full of meaning.
