Hi, my name is Amber – The Co-Owner and lead floral designer of Mrs Gibbons Flowers. I have been in love with flowers since I was a small child. My grandfather would spend hours upon hours showing me all the beautiful and unusual plants in his overflowing greenhouse. Whatever he touched blossomed, he would hybridise orchids and all manner of plants. I don’t remember any of his creations being anything short of glorious. My Mother and Father were also keen gardeners and our home growing up was an overflowing jungle of big leaves. We never ran short on adventures and truly loved all that Gods earth had for us.
I fell into floristry at the age of 14, I started off looking after the deliveries, watering plants, bleaching buckets, dusting shelves (you name it I did it) what truly made me fall in love with floristry was handing over a bunch or vase of thoughtful blooms to the recipient. I will never be able to truly describe the look in someone’s eyes or the smile that beams off a face or the way flowers can dry up a river of tears. I wanted to create these day changers and I was hooked. I still am. Seeing the reaction on my client’s face is priceless, the tears of joy, the squeals. My heart is truly overflowing at that point, knowing that the months of meetings, phone calls, mood boards have blown you away!
That’s why Mrs Gibbons Flowers exists, we truly love to create beautiful floral pieces that represent you, your style/vibe and bring to life your dreams.
