Fleurs, pretty fleurs. I’ve got such a treat in store for you today. May I introduce, the totally amazing Rebecca Marsala of Gingerlily Flowers. And yes, she’s actually ginger – with the prettiest hair and the most perfect complexion.

I met Rebecca a couple of years ago now (sounding like my grandmother: my oh my how time flies) and it was literally love at first sight. She is one green-fingered-floral-goddess who can turn her hand to anything.  She also taught me how to pin on a buttonhole properly – something for which I’ll love her forever.

A few things you absolutely need to know about Rebecca:

♥  She fell head over heels in love with Mr Marsala, left Lancashire to settle ‘darn sarf’ and in 2009 Gingerlily Flowers was born.

♥  She now calls Leighton Buzzard her home and runs Gingerlily full time from her gorgeous little studio at the bottom of the garden.

♥  She wanted to become a florist pretty much since she was 11 years old and ‘blames’ her aunt, also a florist, for (almost literally) sowing the first seeds of love for all things fleurs.

♥  She loves working on wedding flowers! The challenge of translating a bride’s vision into floral reality is pretty nerve-racking but just as (if not more) rewarding. It also means that she is used to working with flowers and greenery on all kinds of scales and I guarantee, there’s literally nothing she can’t do.

♥  She loves unusual designs and is known for her contemporary style. She’s also not afraid to mix colours to create a little drama amongst the blooms.

♥  Most days, you’ll find her in her studio, surrounded by a team of budding florists training with her and guarded closely by Ricotta (official Gingerlily Canine).
