Hampshire Wedding Florist crafting thoughtful arrangements informed by the seasons
About | Caroline
Gather & Bloom was started in 2016 by myself, Caroline Bishop. I design and create artful arrangements inspired by an English garden and countryside hedgerows that are informed by the seasons for both weddings and events. I draw on my background in Art & Design and my training at the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers to produce arrangements that are both beautiful and thoughtful.
Flowers evoke a personal emotion, they have such a beautiful fleeting quality and for me my aim is to always create floral designs that reflect this. I love working with colours and textures that harmoniously interplay with one another to produce a design that is both unique but with a sense of familiarity.
'Slightly wild, humble in nature, intimate, untamed, seasonal and always beautiful. '
I am inspired by the beauty found in imperfections within nature and working with it to generate an overall aesthetic bespoke to every brief I work on. The entire process of developing my floral designs from the initial idea inspired by a wealth of sources to making sketches and notes, colour palette references and mood boards is an enjoyable one for me. When I work on a wedding or event I will always make sure every detail is considered and understood fully.
Simplicity and appreciating nature as it is are the two key elements I strive to achieve within my work.
