Flowers that reflect the life and personality of the individual as well as the sentiments of the family are the number one focus when it comes to funeral flowers.

I work with you to make choosing and organising your flowers for that final farewell as simple as I possibly can.

I work with a number of local funeral directors and liaise with them to ensure  your farewell flowers are delivered at the appropriate time.

A little about me

My floristry journey started late in life in my 40’s. Having been a Personal Assistant in the corporate world for over 20 years, a change in my personal circumstances and a battle with depression lead me to develop my existing love and knowledge of flowers and gardening via training at college, online and alongside established florists.

Before too long Flowers by Catherine became my career.  I’m doing what I love and loving what I do and those PA skills have come in very handy too!

I’m also a lover of all things vintage and have a range of reduce-recycle-reuse items that I create floral arrangements in which can be used again and again by the recipient, two gifts in one.  Where possible, I use eco-friendly methods in my designs and source some of my flowers locally to support British growers.

Get in touch

If you’re looking for truly creative floral arrangements for a special occasion, just because or an ideal gift for that special someone, do get in touch.

You have the ease of ordering and paying online but the difference is a gift that is unique and beautiful, how every gift should be.
