Grace is Bramble & Wild’s owner & creative director.
After obtaining a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design and formal training in Floristry, Grace founded Bramble & Wild in 2011.
The shop and the flowers within are, in many ways, her hobby too. Her passion for all things creative & love of gardening shows as soon as you walk in the door. Her own garden is filled with David Austin roses, peonies, dahlias and hellebores and she is planning a new cutting garden for wedding flowers this year. When out and about, her artistic eye is always focused on what’s next for her shop. Whether that’s some vintage terracotta pots from a reclamation yard or a roll of extra special ribbon for a bouquet.
Favourite flower: “If it grows in a cottage garden and is scented, then I love it. Sweetpeas, narcissi and big blowsy garden roses… My favourites are always changing with the seasons and that’s what I love about them.”
Kirsty is our full time senior florist & is an excellent designer. She holds the fort in the shop from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
She has completed her Level 2 Diploma in Floristry. With a BA in History of Art, previous experience working at galleries in London & an artist herself, Kirsty brings an affinity for the abstract & a welcoming smile to Bramble & Wild. Kirsty loves bright & bold colours, so expect to see lots of fun blooms when she has been to the market!
Favourite flower: “Anemones. They seem delicate, yet when they open up are so boldly coloured – just like jewels!”
Bramble & Wild has been named ‘Southwest Regional Winner’ for best wedding florist at the 2013 & 2015 Wedding Industry Awards – the two years we have entered so far!
Bracken the labrador is one of our resident shop dogs. Still a puppy and so prone to boisterous tendencies, he is owned by Grace and can usually be found sat on the doorstep, waiting to welcome new and old customers alike.
Wellie the cocker spaniel is the more mature and much better behaved shop dog at Bramble & Wild. Belonging to Kirsty, you’ll meet Wellington early in the week.
They love to say hello to their doggy pals, who are always welcome in the shop.
