After a career in fashion and a busy London life Rachel turned her attention to the world of flowers. Rachel trained at the renowned Jane Packer Flower School in 2005 and had the honour of meeting the inspirational founder, an introduction she is particularly grateful for.
After relocating to Bath, Rachel opened a florist shop, a wedding and event business and a flower school too! After 4 years of retail Rachel launched Tallulah Rose, a flower school dedicated to nurturing career change students.
Fast forward 10 years and Tallulah Rose Flower School is proud to be a significant part of many successful florist journeys. Rachel, still very much at the helm of Tallulah Rose, continues to push the school to be the very best!
Saffy joined team Tallulah 6 years ago however she has worked with flowers since she was 14!
Saffy works in both Bath and London and has provided flowers for hundreds of weddings and specialises in large scale installations.
As a teacher Saffy is generous with her knowledge and works hard with our students to help them explore their creative potential. She loves flowers to look natural and believes all colours go together.
And in her own words… ‘ I have never knowingly walked past an interesting stick without picking it up!’
After a career in banking Verity completed the Mcqueens career change course back in 2003 and has never looked back. Being in London she was fortunate enough to work for some amazing florists and gained experience on both weddings and events. She loved the buzz of being in a team and working together in creating big installations.
Moving to Bath in 2006 Verity came across Rachel’s business and has worked with her ever since. Teaching makes her feel happy, and feels there is nothing more rewarding than imparting your knowledge onto a student and setting them on their own floristry journey! Apart from the teaching she also helps with the business side of things, from the accounts to the website, no two days for her are the same.
Ai began her floristry career at the age of 15 when she started to learn the Japanese art if Ikebana. Ai then went on to college in both Japan and the UK to further her floristry skills.
Ai worked in the wedding and events industry in Japan before having a family and settling back in the UK where she now works for Tallulah Rose Flower School and we’re very grateful – she keeps us all in check!
‘My favourite season of flowers has to be summer, maybe because i was born in summer!?’
Lemmy has become a very important member of Team Tallulah joining when he was only 12 weeks old!
Lemmy loves a cuddle but will often be found buried under a mountain of blankets while our students work on their designs.
Lemmy is happy to be your surrogate dog and his favourite things are twigs and eucalyptus … woof woof..
