I'm Sarah, founder of Pemberly & Co. My team would love to make your wedding flowers everything you have dreamt of and more. Here is my story.
As a young girl of 11 my first experience of floristry was working for a day in the Queens Arcade florist, a work experience job for school. I absolutely loved being amongst the flowers, ribbons, wires and pins, the amazing heavy scents of roses, stock and greenery surrounding me.
The buzz of working in such a creative space was a heady experience. I was hooked and worked in various florists until I went to Art School, then University. Weddings for friends and family kept my inner florist alive.
I started my career as an Event and Wedding Co-ordinator in New Zealand, lived in London for 5.5 years working in event management, and for a catering company here in New Zealand when I returned. Then it was back to the corporate life of events. After having children I found myself longing to be back amongst flora and fauna, and so Pemberly & Co was born. The name is adapted from one of my favourite novels Pride & Prejudice, and is a reference to Mr Darcy's estate. The perfect name for me, encapsulating my love of all things English!
