``If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.``
“I have loved everything about flowers for as long as I can remember, but only in 2010 (having completed a two year, full-time floristry course), did I manage to combine a passion with a career, and Woodland Flowers was born.
Specialising in wedding flowers, my studio is situated in Midleton, Co. Cork, with beautiful walks, stunning scenery and the majestic Ballyannan Woods and Castle just a stones throw away. Whenever possible I love to incorporate seasonal and locally grown bloom into my designs, with the aim of bringing the natural beauty of the outdoors inside.
One of my favourite moments, is seeing the expression of emotion on the brides face when she gets the first glimpse of her bouquet on the wedding morning. Seeing and experiencing the big smile, even bigger hug, as well as the occasional tears (happy ones of course!) is a unique privilege and one that warms my heart each and every time.
Having trained and qualified as a teacher early in my career I now love to pass on my floral skills and knowledge both to young, aspiring florists as well as those who simply want to enjoy floral design as a hobby. Throughout the Autumn and early Spring evenings I am therefore to be found in the local Community College or at Colaiste Stiofain Naofa in Cork City keeping the passion alive.”
