Award-winning, imaginative floral design for the last 20 years
Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design’s philosophy is founded on a bedrock of creativity.
It applies this concept to everything it does, not just to its acclaimed floral designs but to how the company is run, the way the team works together and the experience that customers receive. It’s a whole approach to life, so the idea is that everyone who comes into contact with the company should feel more creative as a result. It’s no surprise then, that customers are always enchanted by its flower arrangements.
The company’s USP is the ability to bring a brand to life by representing its values through bespoke floral designs, styling and large-scale installations. The client’s vision is always key – even if they don’t know exactly what they’re looking for initially – and Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design is expert at translating that into specially designed, signature bouquets that speak distinctively of the brand in a subtle, beautiful and very powerful way.
Elizabeth’s belief is that, just like a piece of music, floral design should take viewers on an emotional journey, combining dramatic crescendos with moments of silence. No idea is too crazy to be considered and no two designs are ever the same. In a unique aftercare package, the company will also tend to the flowers once installed – in some cases visiting the customer’s site daily to maintain arrangements and ensure they never see anything other than the freshest blooms.
A former linguist who tried her hand at journalism before turning to floristry without any formal training 20 years ago, Elizabeth was one of the last independent artists to design and install the window displays for Harvey Nichols in the 1990s, alongside Mary Portas, as well as working with Le Caprice and The Ivy.
Over the years the company has served private clients as well as the upper-end of the corporate, retail and hospitality sectors, with flowers and planted displays. On the one hand the company can supply classical decorations for the Corbin & King restaurant group (including The Wolseley and The Delaunay), while, on the other, design avant-garde art installations for La Perla and the Le Méridien Hotel, Piccadilly.
Selected as preferred suppliers to The Science Museum, Rolex, Montblanc, Marcus Wareing, The Roux Brothers, members of the Hambro family, Cliveden House, Spencer House, The Savile Club, Liz Earle, the D&D restaurant group and The Saudi Royal Embassy, among others, the company is at the top of its game.
Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design has won many awards, including two gold medals from the RHS judges at this year’s Chelsea and Hampton in Bloom competitions on behalf of clients for its creative interpretation of the design brief. Elizabeth’s book, Petal Performance: the Art and Economics of Floral Design has established her as a leading voice in the world of floral design – both in London and, increasingly, internationally – and Elizabeth now offers workshops where she ‘teaches people how to arrange flowers, not just to create a particular flower arrangement’. She is also asked more and more to give talks on floral design and how to maximise the impact of flowers and plants.
With a restless imagination that baulks at the idea of working in a single style and the endless creative freedom and possibilities that exploring the world of nature brings, Elizabeth’s continuing aim is to make an impact on people through flowers by always delivering that crucial ‘wow’ factor. Whatever the arrangement is for a corporate environment or a private wedding, the company stays true to its strap line: ‘making magic happen with flowers’.
