"I must have flowers, always and always"– Claude Monet
Hi, I'm Zuzana. So great to see you here!
My life with flowers started when I was a girl. I would spend endless summers at my grandparents’ house in the country, and its beautiful garden full of cottage flowers. Each time I left with my parents to head back to Prague, my home city, there was always a bunch of flowers on the back seat of the car to brighten up my bedroom.
When I first lived on my own, my house was never without a splash of floral colour. A bunch or bouquet was as much a staple on my shopping list as bread and milk; no matter how little money I had to spend.
I’m always at my calmest and most at peace when surrounded by flowers. When I moved to the UK 17 years ago I spent many happy hours wandering among beautiful English country gardens, soaking in the colours and perfumes. The need to be among flowers kept growing, and I soon realised that I needed to listen to that little voice inside me and do something about it! I took the plunge, and Fig and Flower was born.
Floristry to me is an art form. Back in Prague, I studied art and design for years. I love that my floral career allows me to indulge my love of creating beautiful things, telling stories, and making meaningful memories for people on the happiest day of their lives.
When not in the studio, you’ll find me spending time with my husband, children and our mad Schnauzer Ziggy. I’ll rarely say no to a party, and am something of a cocktail connoisseur (make mine a Caipirinha or Gin&Tonic). Agatha Christie is a bit of a heroine of mine, and I am very partial to a night in with Hercule Poirot!
I would love to find out about you and your wedding plans. Get in touch for a free consultation (and a nice cup of tea or G&T), and let’s start your floral story together.
