At the age of 14 my mum suggested I try the local flower shop for a Saturday job. I did and I was hooked. I couldn’t believe the scent every morning when I walked in the shop and I happily embraced all the grubby jobs just to get the chance to practice arranging if the afternoon was quiet.
A move to the big city at 18 was hugely exciting and It was here I studied tv and film make up art and worked on various productions in and around Glasgow.
After 3 years my first love had lured me back and in 1999 I opened my flower shop in the heart of the West end “Grace”.
These were fantastic times, Grace went from strength to strength and we had the opportunity to work with some really exciting clients on large events all over Scotland.
After 10 years the countryside called once again and its back in highland Perthshire that I feel very lucky to have a mix of country family life and the love of working on weddings and events in the most beautiful area that I grew up in.
