Wild Romance

In the spirit of the month of love and Valentine’s day, we take a closer look at the inspiration behind our Valentines edit. With the aim of offering a contemporary twist on a traditional bunch of red roses, we created bouquets with a deep and rich colour palettes, that spark memories of bygone love tales and forbidden love. Give the gift of something wilder this Valentine’s day.

Gypsy Heart

Wild and free, a gypsy heart is hard to tame.  The restless, wandering soul was born free, let her wild spirit run her own way. In ode to romance, passion and the free-spirited among us, we created our Gypsy Heart bouquet and flower jars filled with burnt oranges, deep reds and blushing pinks. The warm colour palette prompts memories of romantic candle-lit nights, engulfed in your lover’s company until the sunrise.

Do not try to make sense of my madness or structure my chaos. Love me as I am or leave me be, for this wild heart was not born to be tamed

Lover’s Isle

When we think of love and romance we’re often seek influence from folklores. For our Lover’s isle bouquet we were inspired by the Welsh patron saint love Dwynwen, her story is filled with heartbreak and forbidden love. According to legend the beautiful daughter of king Brychan Brycheiniog, Dwynwen fell madly in love with Maelon, whom she was forbidden to marry, as her father had already promised her hand in marriage to another man.


Distraught and heartbroken,  Dwynwen ran away and prayed she would fall out of love. As she slept, an angel appeared to her, carrying a sweet potion that would erase her feelings for Maelon. While still asleep she drank the potion which turned her lover into a block of ice. Upon awakening, Dwynwen was filled with compassion and remorse, she prayed to god to reverse the curse. God, also granted her three wishes - to Maelon be thawed, keep her from ever marrying and to take care of all lovers henceforth. In return, she spent the rest of her life living on the small island off Anglesey in Wales, devoted to lovers and sharing her healing powers with others.
