It's all about the Flowers
Blakes of Bookham began life in Bookham Village in 2005, being jointly run by Amanda and her mum, Angela. Amanda’s passionate relationship with flowers and floristy started in 1997 at Northbrook College, Worthing where she completed two qualifications in Floristry. She continued her training to an advanced level at Brinsbury College, Billingshurst completing an NCPF (National Certificate in Professional Floristry).
Her experience and floral knowledge has been built over 20 years beginning with her first florist business in Brighton. Settling finally in Bookham, Amanda and her mum Angela established Blakes of Bookham and worked together for many years.
As a Wedding floral specialist Amanda works closely with local wedding venues. She takes pride in using her extensive floristry knowledge and experience to design unique floral arrangments to achieve each brides’ perfect wedding day.
Amanda now runs Blakes of Bookham, carrying on with her mums legacy and commitment to service excellence.
