In this week’s video, I share with you my photography journey capturing flowers…from point and click to digital SLR cameras.
Have you heard the news? New Covent Garden Flower Market, the team behind British Flowers Week, are searching for five florists to feature in the national campaign promoting British flowers and floristry!
The five featured florists will each create three designs for the British Flowers Week photoshoot, which forms the cornerstone of the campaign. And during British Flowers Week, which is taking place from June 19th-25th, each florist will have one day devoted to showcasing them and their designs.
If you follow my new Instagram account, @underthefloralspell, you may have seen earlier this week that I posted this incredible image above? It features a stunning giant wreath as a ceremony backdrop, created by Katie at Ponderosa & Thyme.
This week’s video, Flowerona News, features a round-up of happenings in the floristry industry this month, including exclusive footage of the brand new Flower Market at New Covent Garden Market, a new competition for British Flowers Week, The Floral Artist Workshop in York and my Hellebore Report.
Here’s a list of the links mentioned in the video:

On Tuesday, I was thrilled to take my very first look around the brand new Flower Market at New Covent Garden Market on Nine Elms Lane in Vauxhall, London. (You may have seen the photos and videos in my Instagram Story?)
Well, I was completely and utterly blown away! What an absolutely incredible space has been built to house the flower, foliage, plant and sundry wholesalers, plus several florist workshops. The new market is light, bright, modern and airy with a double-height ceiling in the centre of the building. And it looks soooo swish! So ‘up with the times’.
