SPOTLIGHT | PAULA’S 25th FLOWER ANNIVERSARY
September 2018 marks the 25th Anniversary of our Creative Director Paula Rooney’s floristry career. Today’s Spotlight travels through Paula’s flower journey from her introduction to the industry to successful internationally recognised entrepreneur.
As the head of the hugely successful Paula Rooney Floral Design, Paula has an unwavering focus and her attention to detail extends to every aspect of her business. With a considerable amount of hard work and dedication, Paula continues to use her experience to inspire her many clients and growing team.
Paula’s Flower Journey
Paula has many wonderful memories from her 25 years in the flower design industry but there are some magical moments that certainly stand out. Her specific highlights include being featured in the renowned publication Brides Magazine’s ‘How wedding experts get married’ focusing on her stunning 2015 Four Seasons Hampshire wedding and having her flowers grace the cover of the Brides Magazine Diamond Edition. Paula has loved every destination wedding she has designed and is excited to see where in the world she will be taken next. In 2015 Paula was thrilled to win prime categories at The Wedding Awards. She has also been delighted to accept the award for Best Flowers in the City for her Four Seasons London at Ten Trinity Square installations 2 years in a row.
Paula has her sights set on more stunning destination weddings stretching across the globe as well as connecting with the world’s best planners. Paula is excited to continue her work with luxury hotels and one day realise her dream of exhibiting installations at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The team are excited to one day make this a reality! The future holds exciting new projects as the company launches its online shop and flower school. Here’s to the next 25 years of Paula’s story!
I truly believe that when you are working in an industry and role that you love it doesn’t feel like work. Throughout my career I have had wonderful opportunities that have come with sacrifice and hard work but which have brought varying experiences resulting in huge success. Nothing worth having is easy! I have always sought adventure in floral design and continue to embark on the courageous side of bringing my client’s bespoke visions alive. I have a strong team of females behind me who bring their imagination and motivation to all we do at Paula Rooney Floral Design.
PAULA ROONEY, 2018
