About Queen of the Meadow

Kirsten founded Queen of the Meadow after retraining as a florist at the Tallulah Rose Flower School. She is based in rural Neath, South Wales, working from her studio on a farm. She offers beautiful floral designs for all occasions. She takes inspiration from her surroundings and looks to the past for influence. She creates natural, winsome and romantic flowers using only the finest blooms from British growers, her own cutting garden and flower markets.

She works with local growers, as well as using some of her own home grown flowers, to ensure that the freshest blooms and most organic forms are used. Working with British growers where possible in her work ensures that fewer air miles are used, it supports the British growing industry and uses flowers that have not been subjected to pesticides. She likes to use traditional methods of flower arranging rather than using floral foam and plastics. She does not use cellophane in her work, replacing this with re-useable and recyclable materials instead.
