Tell us a little about yourself and your business
We’re a luxury, boutique florist specializing in creating beautifully elegant floral designs for weddings, events and special occasions throughout London, the South East and beyond.
I’ve trained with UK and European master florists and have over 10 years of floral expertise.
What motivated you to start your business?
To allow me to follow my own design style, which blends English romantic elegance with European flair – a style which is luxurious and sophisticated, innovative and intricate with fine attention to detail. Being 100% responsible for delivering a client’s vision is hugely satisfying.
Tell us a little more about the day to day activities of your business
No two days are the same – from meeting potential clients and preparing quotations, visiting flower markets in the early hours of the morning, ordering stock, conditioning flowers, preparing for weddings and events, taking part in photoshoots and managing social media and marketing campaigns
If our readers were to order from you, what can they expect?
100% commitment to you and your wedding day. From our initial meeting, which we like to have at your venue so we can truly understand your vision, we’ll prepare your quotation and then continue to work with you right up to the big day. We’ll create a sample of your wedding flowers if you wish, so you’re completely happy with the final look.
We always focus 100% on our clients and never undertake more than one event at a time, in order to maintain our high level of personal service. We believe every bride is unique and take care to ensure that your wedding flowers truly reflect your style and personality.
How can couples judge if a company is the right fit for their wedding?
Most importantly feel comfortable with them and trust them. Meet with the people who will be involved in your wedding; talk through your ideas – your supplier should listen and understand what you’re looking for, but should also be able to offer suggestions which you might not have considered and ways to improve.Also, take a look at their previous work to see if it fits with your style
You’ll soon know if they are the company for you.
What are your favourite moments from previous weddings you’ve been involved with?
Each wedding is completely different but it’s always fantastic to see our clients’ reactions when they first see their wedding flowers – to know that we’ve met and exceeded their expectations is worth everything!
The bigger picture – does your business offer goods/services outside of the wedding world? Tell us more
Absolutely! We create designs for all kinds of events and special occasions – from the most intimate anniversary celebration to the wildest birthday party – we love creating elegant, bespoke floral arrangements for parties, celebrations, corporate events, bridal showers – flowers are our passion!
What have you got planned for the next 12 months?
To continue to see Black Baccara go from strength to strength. We’ve got a busy spring and summer with weddings, and we’re planning to attend more shows to spread the word!
And finally, what or who inspires you and why?
Inspiration for my designs comes from all over – whether it’s taking a flower and using it in a new and exciting way, or being inspired by the work of other florists. I am always learning – as a florist it’s important to never think you know everything, there’s always something new to try, to ensure my work is always improving and developing.
