Claire Nellis: Founder of Heaven Flowers
Welcome to my website. I am a Freelance florist with a decade of experience gained through working with some highly acclaimed florists who have helped me nurture my love for the wonderful and creative world of flowers. In 2012 I was awarded the level 3 Diploma in Floristry from Shuttleworth College, with Distinction.
The amazing thing about the world of flowers is that there is always something new to learn, from the latest techniques and trends, through to a wonderful array of new material appearing almost weekly. I love the challenge this presents, which is why I regularly attend professional design days, continually allowing me to share new ideas with my customers.
Passionate about nature, flowers and floral designing, I bring a natural and delicate touch to my designs, allowing the beauty of the natural materials to speak for themselves. I am delighted to share the joy of flowers through my workshops, which I run all through the year, and which reflect the changing seasons. With a full range of Floristry services, from joyful Wedding flowers, to gentle memorial designs on the death of a loved one, I am proud to offer a very personal service, and to bring a high degree of quality and individuality to my work.
Whether it is a simple posy for a friend, or a lavish Wedding, I would love to hear from you, and hope I can be of help.
Chelsea Flower Show
I am a keen member of the Hitchin Flower Club (National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies). In 2014, I was privileged to be given the opportunity to represent the club at RHS Chelsea, where as part of a team of two, I was thrilled to achieve a gold medal in the Floral Arrangement class (‘Pageant’), for our design ‘Il Carnevale Veneziano’ (see right).
