A passion for beautiful blooms.
“Rest assured, I can tell a Dandelion from a Dahlia, although to some, both are equally beautiful.
“Being in love with flowers all my life, but also a bit slow on the uptake, I didn’t start my full blown love affair with all things floral until a big birthday was looming and a much needed career change was required.
Now, almost 12 years on, I still run my thriving small business ‘Escential Blooms’, providing beautiful blooms and my all time passion for foliage, to couples planning for their special day. I decided to be quite niche and specialise in wedding florals and design only, as I believed this was a way of staying true to myself and honing the much needed skills required for a ‘once in a lifetime occasion’ like Weddings.
I take my job very seriously but like all creatives can have moments of what I call ‘fluff’ where its best to down tools or take oneself away from the computer and spend time in the garden dead heading flowers, or go on long walks with my dog around the lanes and local woods or just sit and play my piano.
I have won and been runner up in Industry awards but I have to say I am happiest when hearing back from my own lovely couples who have been delighted with not only their beautiful designs and creations that I provided them with but also the personal service that goes alongside. I want to be the Couples’ ‘friend’ in the background that is reliable, trustworthy, smiley, stays out of the way but most importantly, gets the job done!”

I have been providing wedding flowers here for the entire time I have been a wedding floral designer and consider myself one of the Trevenna team (whether they like it or not!).”

PART OF THE FAMILY
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment, supporting the prosperity of our local community and celebrating local, seasonal and sustainable produce.
Kirsty, one of our Trevenna stars, is also doing her bit towards being more ‘green’.
“I have watched this beautiful venue grow and mature over the years and have been wanting to play a small part in their current and ongoing eco initiatives.
With this in mind, I have considered how I can become a more environmentally and socially conscious Florist and I can now offer ‘free from foam’ floral designs. Florists foam is one of the’ go to’ mechanics for most floral designers for its stability and durability but it takes over 100 years to break down! Shocking I know!
I also ensure all bouquets are delivered either within reusable enamel jugs (which also look pretty when doubled up and used during the wedding), or with ‘eco fresh bouquet’ wraps and biodegradable bags which are 100% compostable, all within lovely reusable cardboard bouquet boxes. Any plastic trays that are required to be used can be recycled and reused at the end of the day, so once again, minimal waste. All Thank You bouquets will be wrapped in recycled paper and biodegradable cello.
Hopefully all these small changes will end up playing a big part in minimising waste and help this socially responsible beautiful venue actively reduce their impact on the environment.”
All flowers featured were designed by Kirsty for Couples at Trevenna.
