Engaging with clients through imaginatively bespoke floral design
Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design’s philosophy is founded on the notion that a flower arrangement’s value lies in the impact it has on the people looking at it.
Known for transforming spaces through bespoke floral designs, the company’s USP is the ability to bring its philosophy to life via natural decoration, styling
and large-scale installations. Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design is expert at translating the client’s vision into signature bouquets, which demonstrate the brand’s distinction in a subtle, beautiful and powerful way.
Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design’s latest offering is aimed at market leaders who want to demonstrate their commitment to the wellbeing of their staff and clients.
Tapping into the biophilia hypothesis, which suggests that humans have an innate tendency to seek connection with nature, Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design is transforming corporate office spaces by ‘bringing the garden to work’ and creating floral schemes designed to help workers to interact and engage with each other. By reimagining areas like the reception, Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design gives the corporate office a soul. The company’s aftercare package also ensures that flowers are tended to once they are installed. In some cases the customer’s site is visited daily to maintain arrangements and ensure they contain nothing other than the freshest blooms.
Elizabeth Marsh was a linguist and tried her hand at journalism before turning to floristry without any formal training 20 years ago. In the 1990s she was one of the last independent artists to design and install the window displays for Harvey Nichols, alongside Mary Portas. She has also worked with Le Caprice and The Ivy. Today Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design is a preferred supplier to The Science Museum, Rolex, Montblanc, Marcus Wareing, The Roux Brothers, Cliveden House, Spencer House, The Savile Club, Liz Earle, The Saudi Royal Embassy and members of the Hambro family, among others. The company is constantly looking for new ways to communicate through flowers.
Elizabeth has started to offer workshops to address the need for individuals to express themselves, de-stress and maintain a healthy work-life balance. These range from teaching the basics of gardening to providing a platform for employees to grow their own fruit and vegetables, which can be sold through Elizabeth Marsh Floral Design’s forums.
The company has won many awards, including gold medals from the RHS judges at the Chelsea and Hampton in Bloom competitions. 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 for private clients and at the upper end of the corporate, retail and hospitality sectors in London and, increasingly, internationally. Elizabeth’s continuing aim is to make an impact on people through flowers by always delivering that crucial ‘wow’ factor. Whatever the arrangement, the company stays true to its strap line: ‘making magic happen with flowers’.
