As a trained horticulturalist and garden designer, I have always been passionate about flowers and the changing seasons. My career as a gardener began over 10 years ago and naturally progressed to Floristry when my family arrived. I now have a home based studio in Bedfordshire and have been privileged to supply flowers to many beautiful couples both locally and further afield.
With a solid background in gardening and garden design, I draw inspiration from the landscape and the changing seasons and try to incorporate seasonal flowers to capture the time of year, as well as add a unique edge to arrangements. I also like to use locally grown flowers when available, often adding a touch that simply cannot be grown en masse!
I believe that what makes an event truly unique, is when it truly reflects a couples personalities, style, loves, dreams, hopes and character. This input is invaluable when styling an event and that includes the flowers. I will endeavor to create flowers reflective of you and your style, and introduce the uniqueness that I see when I meet clients. I work with clients to bring their ideas to life and can meet as many times as needed.
I offer a personal service, with complete dedication to your wedding. I will often be on hand to help not only with the flowers, but with any other requests couples may have. My hope is to bring an air of calmness in what can sometimes be an otherwise stressful day.
“We were absolutely thrilled with our stunning flowers from The Basement Florist for our wedding at South Farm. We wanted flowers that were rustic yet soft and delicate and Noeleen created the most beautiful floral displays, bouquets and absolutely gorgeous floral hair crowns for myself and bridesmaids. It was lovely getting to know Noeleen and her warmth, professionalism and helpful nature made her a joy to work with throughout planning the wedding and on the day itself.” Natasha – London
“I’m not much of a flower person so didn’t really have a clue when it came to organising flowers for my wedding last May. I contacted Noeleen who came to my house to discuss initial ideas. Her friendly and chilled out approach put me at ease straight away and I knew I was in safe hands. On the day, the flowers exceeded expectations and I could not fault Noeleen’s professionalism. I would without a doubt recommend her creative and simply beautiful creations to anybody who requires flowers for any occasion”. Katie – Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK
