Rona Wheeldon in conversation with Shane Connolly…
Today, I’m thrilled to tell you about a very special event which I’m taking part in next month.
Shane was the Artistic Director of Flowers for the wedding of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The details of the event are :
- Date : Tuesday, 11th June
- Time : 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
- Location : Heal’s, 196 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1T 7LQ
During my conversation with Shane, you will learn about his career to date in the world of flowers and horticulture, which started at a young age with a packet of vegetable seeds and his very own greenhouse.
The history of floral design, key figures who have influenced him and who inspires him today will also be discussed.
He will talk about his passion for using flowers and plants which are local, seasonal and recyclable when designing events for his clients.
And he will touch upon his breath-taking floral designs and the presence of trees at the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Shane will also give advice about how to arrange flowers for everyday living in your own home, as illustrated in his most recent book ‘A Year in Flowers’.
