by Pumpkin and Pye
I began my journey in floristry at the age of 14 when a friend gave up her position as a Saturday girl at a florist. I decided to try it out and I was immediately captivated by it. I loved it then as much as I love it now.
I went to college to study floristry and worked my way up from being a Saturday girl to the manager of a florist shop. Weddings have always been my passion, so with the encouragement of my husband, I decided to follow my dream and start my own business. That's how Pumpkin and Pye came to life ten years ago.
Today, in my 40s, I leverage my years of experience to create beautiful, high-quality fresh flower bouquets, buttonholes, and arrangements for weddings across Devon, Somerset, and Cornwall, and sometimes even further afield. I also design alternative and artificial bouquets and buttonholes for couples worldwide through www.pumpkinpye.com.
I currently live in Exeter with my husband, who is a wedding photographer at Evolve Photography, along with our ten cats and ducks.
