Alicia’s workshop is a stone’s throw from Wickham House, surrounded by fields and countryside from which she takes her inspiration for her floral styling. Alicia has developed a natural, abundant and loose style, preferring seasonal, home-grown and locally sourced blooms, and advocating British when the season allows. Her styling typically includes delicate English Roses that are deliciously scented, unusual flowers not available at the markets and masses of foliage and herbs, foraged from the hedgerows. Having a larder of country lanes and fields at her fingertips, she is able to create natural, wild and romantic event flowers.
Alicia currently works with venues throughout the south of England and beyond, and more recently has been styling for film, television, photoshoots and Michelin star restaurants. Her work has been featured on many blogs and in national magazines.
