In 1998 I enrolled on a two year NVQ Floristry Course in Worcestershire and my love of flowers began. I also studied Interior Design and with many years of sales and marketing, Jayne Pugh-Flowers by Design was born in 2000. I was immediately offered the position of “in-house florist” at a local Hilton Hotel and attracted a wide range of clients from royalty to TV presenters and sports personalities who liked my natural, simple style of floral design. One of my proudest moments was when I was given the wonderful opportunity of showing my flower arranging work to the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at Gloucester Campus.
I like my flower designs to inspire without being too fussy, reflect the seasons and to have sophistication and pure elegance. My designs must allow the true beauty of flowers to shine through and my philosophy is 'less is more' and 'only the very best quality will do'. My combination of floral and interior design gives me the perfect balance to create the designs of your dreams.
For many years my family and I had been on holidays to Cyprus and after purchasing a property in 2009, we decided in 2012 that Paphos is where we wanted to live. I could now live on the island that I had fallen in love with and still create my floral designs. Over the years I have worked with some amazing people, I received a testimonial from a photographer who wrote “You have a rare gift to create designs that fit the personality of the bride and suit the occasion perfectly too. I know you care passionately about the service to your brides, so when the brides tell us they have you looking after them, I know they are in safe hands, and the flowers will be fantastic” - John English, The Owl and The Pussycat Wedding Photography, April 2012.
Together with my floral designs for weddings, funeral and events in Cyprus I also offer a hire service which people find invaluable for those special events.
I look forward to speaking to you in the near future.
