Company Director & Creative Stylist
Jess founded S&T in 2018 after graduating at the University of Northumbria where she studied Fashion Design & Marketing. She spent the majority of her University life working in The Events Industry and then moving to Wedding Floristry,
She spends most of her time working alongside brides & grooms to plan their perfect wedding flowers.
Jess is fickle with her favourite flowers as it changes with each season! However, foliage is always a must.
Happiest when she gets to see couples reactions to their flowers. Creating the dream and bringing it to life really is something she takes huge pride in.
Wedding Events Assistant
Christine assists in the daily jobs around the unit & the setups for your big day. You will often find her with a chair sash in hand moving at a million mph to get them all tied beautifully.
Christine's favourite flower is a tulip, she just likes the "flow" and how it "hides in a little sleeping bag" until it surprises you when it blooms.
Happiest when given free rein for getting the arrangements as big and as creative as possible - the sky's the limit. She doesn't mind a glass of prosecco either.
Wedding Events Assistant
You will mainly see Denise at wedding fairs & helping us when we need an extra pair of creative hands. She's always on board for a challenge & to help with any of your questions.
Denise's favourite flower has to be a big bouncy hydrangea. She especially likes when there are larger more experimental flowers from wedding fairs to take home.
Happiest when warm (which unfortunately the unit rarely is!)
Tilly is our chief sniffer at checking all of the beautiful blooms smell as good as they look.
Tilly's favours anything with a strong scent, stocks, peonies, garden roses are all her favourite - she's not fussed on the colour.
Happiest when fed, impartial to a good chin rub and itch behind the ears.
