Day Three - Designs using British Astrantia by Amanda Austin Flowers

Amanda Austin is a florist of timeless style and classic range, with a loyal following and an enviable reputation. Her intuitive eye for colour and texture makes for the most beautiful florals, from bouquets and vases for private clients to show-stopping floral designs for weddings and events in prestigious venues.

The Journey to Market

Exclusively for British Flowers Week, Amanda created a beautiful floral installation that represents elements of her daily journey to the Flower Market from Chelsea. Cleverly constructed on two Market trolleys bound together to make it portable, the scene is rich in the foliages, bark and flowers she sees in gardens and on roadsides on her way into Market. Hanging above it all is a sign from her Chelsea flower shop: Life is Beauty Full.
