Rachel grew up on a farm near Manjimup in the south-west of WA, and it was here amongst the hundreds of rose bushes in her mum's acre of garden, against the backdrop of eucalyptus trees grown by her forester dad, that her floristry style was influenced. She has become known for her soft, romantic and antique signature style of roses mixed with native foliage.
Rachel's journey to becoming a florist was unplanned. Her mum had always had a gift for floristry, and decided to train at the Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath, England. Rachel was convinced to go and keep her mum company, and decided to join her on the course for some mother-daughter bonding. Having never had any floral experience prior, Rachel spent the first three days finding her feet in a class of professional florists before having her lightbulb moment.
What happened in the following weeks and months confirmed to Rachel that she'd found her passion and gift in life. Rachel strives to be the florist for flower lovers.
