Isnt it a beautiful day outside? We have the PERFECT company for you today, the awesome Pollen Nation. Check out the beautiful flowers, what more could you want on a delightful Spring morning!
Lets here what Alison has to say:
I am Alison Trickey and my company is Pollen Nation. I am a florist that specialises solely in my passion of weddings and events. I am based in Shoreditch London, and will travel as far as practical or you will pay me! Website is www.pollen-nation.co.uk
I established the business back in 2004, and Pollen Nation started life as a florist shop in Chiswick before we answered our calling in 2006 to concentrate on weddings and events.
I decided to start my own business as after a career in the Olympic rowing team, I really didn’t want to go for a job interview!
Why am I different? I genuinely love what I do, I have not only a passion for flowers but a passion for people. I enjoy chatting to clients first, then enjoy designing their flowers. I have no pre-conceived ideas for anyone on how their wedding flowers should look, I listen, then create.
Best bit about the working day is the early mornings at the market – yes I am telling the truth! Quiet time, before everyone is up, checking out what would look lovely for my brides.
I work from a large studio in Shoreditch with my boyfriend (OK technically fiance as of a month ago), he does commercials and films in one corner, I create flower mess in the other. I have 2000 sq ft of creating space or dance floor depending on how busy I am. The people at Kew Gardens, Fulham Palace, RSA, The Elvetham and Grays Inn among others love what I do so are delightful enough to pop me on their recommended suppliers list and at the last count I have designed and created personally over 450 weddings countrywide for individual brides with individual styles. More please...:)
WOW is all i can say! Ordering flowers for Easter? I think Alison is your girl! Thank you for allowing us to feature you! We adore your work!
Have a lovely day!
