My name is Paolo. I was born and raised in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan. I have been fascinated by flowers ever since I was ten years old and feel very lucky that I am able to work with them. I love the buzz of creating dreams and magical settings within a world where everything’s possible and the words “can’t do” are never uttered! I run an independent flower design service based in the Vale of Glamorgan where I have a studio & workshop. Growing up in the Vale I've always loved flowers, spending many hazy days roaming the Welsh countryside & playing in the midst of stunning nature all around me! I was lucky enough to study floristry & design at Swansea , focusing on floristry, textiles, printmaking and painting. I have always adored fashion, art and design.
I found my calling when I delved into floristry & became hooked! I went on to become a City and Guilds qualified florist and have worked at the prestigious Covent Garden Cardiff. I'm always learning & love to keep my eye on the most inspirational trends in the flower world. When I'm not knee deep in blooms I enjoy rifling thru' vintage clothes stores and antique shops- foraging for that unique gem of an outfit and a piece of vintage furniture!
I've worked in floristry for almost ten years now. My training has given me a commitment to the highest level of customer service and I strive to create distinctive designs that enhance nature's beauty. I have extensive creative expertise & will offer you a very personal service to help you realise your vision. Look forward to meeting you!
It is so important to me when choosing flowers for a loved one; whether it be a celebration, sympathy, happy occasion or just to say i love you, that I take great care, and listen very carefully to clients. I feel it is essential to give advise and discuss the full range of floral tributes to enable me to choose the correct flowers for the floral tribute and to inform the client what is inn season at that time.
I purchase direct from the Dutch flower market in Holland to ensure the quality, freshness of flowers and foliage are of a very high grade and standard and also at the best price. Customer service is very important to me therefore I strive to provide exellent customer care at all times. My customer's happiness is paramount to me at all times, so I will do all I can to ensure their needs are taken care of.
It is so important to me seeing the joy and happiness from our customers and that is why I will go above and beyond at all times. Nothing will leave my studio unless it's perfect, so I always add more flowers and those extra finishing touches.
I want you to be happy; therefore I offer a free consultation to all clients, Wether it be a home visit in the comfort of your own home, or inviting you to our studio/home for a coffee or tea and slice of homemade cake, or glass of prosecco.
After funeral tributes are made I like to invite clients to view the flowers the evening before, the choice is yours.
