Miranda-Hackett-Flowers

Miranda Hackett is an artisan event florist with a focus on whimsical designs for high end weddings and events.

In  2010 Miranda set up Miranda Hackett Flowers in Bray, Berkshire and in 2017 moved to South Devon where she continues to work for London and local customers, alongside running workshops where she demonstrates how to achieve her style of artisanal floristry.

Miranda’s style is soft and natural with a focus on loose and freely styled designs with an English country garden feel.  Flower sourcing, seasonality and sustainability are intrinsic to Miranda Hackett Flowers, and we have a deep commitment to sourcing from local growers and using sustainable methods.

From an interview with Manor Magazine:

“A lot of my work has been for high end London and home counties clients.  My favourite briefs are for intimate weddings where the couple and I have a shared passion for local and seasonal flowers in an artisanal style.  I am delighted to have decorated Chapel Royal at St James’ Palace for weddings, worked for Eton College and British Polo Day and run numerous workshops at Heston Blumenthal’s The Hinds Head in Bray.  Some of my most challenging work was when living in Slovakia – running a business in a foreign country and conversing with suppliers with my limited Slovak language skills.  Now, very happily based in South Devon, I also work at informal and artistic venues.  For example, I recently decorated Ocean Studios at Royal William Yard for the launch of Flavour Fest, which included a wild foliage display.  I am a keen supporter of and run events for British Flowers Week and The Chelsea Fringe Festival.”

From an interview with Made in Plymouth Magazine:

What I personally loved about Miranda’s attitude to floristry was her adaptive approach. She was as enthusiastic about foraging for materials as she was about producing large, highly prestigious commissions. Enthusiasm for her craft just bubbles out of every conversation.  Miranda’s style is loose and flowing, organic in development, with seasonality in the locally produced blooms and foliage at the heart of her creations.  Since her arrival in the west country, she has developed a great working relationship with many local producers and growers and has found suppliers from Devon and Cornwall very open, flexible and innovative in business dealings.”
