Story Moss & Stone Floral Design
Brigitte's floral story is inspired by the season, garden flowers, foliage and the Suffolk countryside - letting nature speak for itself - in the garden and vase.

Wild, organic, natural and romantic - letting nature speak for itself - in the garden and vase.
Brigitte is inspired and nurtured by the fresh awakenings of each changing season drawing on the traditions of English gardens and the wild beauty of the Suffolk countryside around her. Preferring to use flowers and foliage naturally available at their peak of perfection maintains an honesty and enchantment for herself and her clients.
A subtle detail in an arching stem, an unfurling leaf or a perfect petal all inform and influence her artistic floral arrangements. Expect bashful hellebores in winter, delicate blossom in spring, garden roses in summer and bold dahlias in autumn: delicious, subtle scents, twisty stems searching the light and petals that tremble on the breeze.
Brigitte has an ever-expanding cutting garden within her larger family garden and uses these lovingly grown flowers as a basis for her designs. She combines further delicate additions, trails, vines and foliage from the hedgerow with the best seasonal flowers from carefully selected growers and suppliers. This ensures that Brigitte weaves an untamed, nostalgic and natural style through her wildly romantic floral designs.
Brigitte's flowers are treated with all the reverence deserved of such a beautifully natural product and with a respect to the environment that they come from and we live in. Therefore arrangements are designed into water. Floral foam is avoided ensuring the environmental impact of your event is minimised.
Brigitte's floral story began about ten years ago when she trained as a florist. Since then she has been lucky enough to work and learn from some of the flower world’s best designers as a freelance florist. Realising the importance of ongoing personal growth Brigitte continues to seek out and be invigorated by workshops and classes run by internationally recognised designers, which then inspires and informs her own work.
Brigitte provides flowers for weddings and events throughout Suffolk, East Anglia and beyond and loves sharing her knowledge and passion when teaching her flower workshops. She enjoys collaborations, styled shoots and editorial work.
