A CORNISH FLORIST WITH A DIFFERENCE

Annabelle Cowling, Founder and Florist

I live on the North Coast of Cornwall and find that massively influences my style of floristry- The untameable foliage of the moors, the muted pastels along the cliff paths and the textures found along the stone hedging of the narrow back lanes.

My installations, bouquets and accessories are arranged to feel thrown together, although there is an art to this, it can help make your wedding look effortless and natural which can really compliment a variety of venues and style of ceremonies.

My accidental full time business

Prior to finding my passion in floristry I worked in hospitality which, like many, I felt over worked and under appreciated (and underpaid!) so I made the decision to quit and to say it's paid off is an understatement!

I bought a dog (Beatrice- see my Instagram stories for dog spam) made myself a flower crown and went to the beach (Trevone) there I met a lady called Lucy she asked for a full set for a pagan wedding that summer, that was my first commission and the rest is history.

 

My Roots

My business from then was called 'Cornish Flower Crowns' but in August 2020 I made the move to change the name of my business to accommodate the development and expansion I have been working on. I've spent time researching floral trends that usually stem from areas like Japan and have become conscientious of the environmental impacts florists can create. Because of that I am now a dried flower specialist and have gone on to win awards for my products including being recognised in the National Wedding Awards.

I've always had a passion for flowers and have been encouraged by my Granma Shirley since I was little but with no official qualifications I never felt it was a viable career but as word of mouth spread it became more of a reality and now here I am.

Here are some of my favourite recent pictures if you really want to get to know me!
