Tracy Cole from Hello Flora asked me to help her style a baby shower at her beautiful home. The mother-to-be didn’t know the sex of the baby but knew she was going to call it Avery, which we incorporated into one Hello Flora’s signature giant wreaths.

Since retro girl group The Tootsie Rollers have worn my floral fashion headpieces to Ascot, singer Meg Gallagher asked me to run a workshop at her best friend’s hen do. I taught the women how to make faux floral headbands, hair combs, earrings and rings which many of them also wore to the wedding.

I worked with bride Emma to create a bespoke antique blush pink hydrangea headband to wear with her veil, based on one of my headpieces she had bought from the bridal boutique The Wedding Club. She wanted the same flowers, but a larger and fuller design for a bigger impact. Ultimately she decided to return to the original headband as the proportions worked better with her dress and hairstyle.
