My name is Heather, and I am the proud owner and director of Sonning Flowers! Established in 2004, we are a multi award winning florist specialising in providing fresh floral arrangements for all occasions.
Our flower workshop is based in the beautiful West Berkshire countryside within easy reach of Newbury/Reading and wedding venues in North Hampshire, Berkshire, South Oxfordshire and Surrey. I’m looking forward to celebrating Sonning Flowers 20th birthday next year!
My love of floristry started at 14 years of age after a week’s work experience at a local florist. I loved it from the moment I walked through the door and knew this is what I was destined to do. From starting as a Saturday girl at Sonning Flowers 13 years ago, to obtaining my City & Guilds Qualification in Floristry aged 18, I became the proud owner of Sonning Flowers 5 years ago… and what a 5 years it’s been!
In two decades of trading, the ethos of Sonning Flowers remains the same, to give every customer beautiful floral arrangements of the highest quality. We love using our passion for flowers, knowledge of the seasons and expertise in floral design to create signature arrangements for the special occasions in our customers lives, however big or small they might be.
Personal highlights in my floristry career so far have to been providing floral arrangements for the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show and winning National Wedding Florist of the Year in 2022 at the Wedding Industry Awards. This was a real pinch me moment and I couldn’t have been prouder of my amazing team in the monumental wedding season that was 2022!
As Sonning Flowers continues to grow and expand, we are much more than any one person.
We have a truly talented and dedicated team of employed florists that are committed to providing the best possible flowers to our customers, along with wonderful freelancers, many of whom previously worked or trained as florists with us.
