Paula Pryke is a world renowned florist who has been based in London for nearly thirty years, with an enviable ‘A’ list clientele. 

In 1988 Paula had a dream of opening a little flower shop in Islington. From these humble beginnings she changed the face of British floristry with a reputation for cutting edge innovative floral designs, attracting international attention.  Paula Pryke Flowers is now in constant demand to design flowers for everything from weddings and dinner parties to press launches, award ceremonies and government and state functions.

Initially Paula's style was embraced in Japan and America, but more recently she has been influencing floral design whilst working in Korea, China, India and South America, establishing her globally as one of the world’s top florists.

Paula has written 16 books since 1993, which are sold internationally and have been translated into over 13 languages.  She also writes for many magazines and is often on television in the UK and abroad; in 2004 she trained several former prisoners to open their own flower shop for Channel 4’s One Last Job. 

In 2014 Paula was honoured with an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to the Floristry Industry in recognition of distinguished and valuable service. 

Paula's philosophy has been embraced in Europe, America and Asia where she is in regular demand for lectures and floral demonstrations and has run her world famous flower school since 1994.  Her prestigious internationally acclaimed ‘Career Course’ has become something of a blueprint for flower courses around the country, offering a unique in-road into floristry for frustrated florists considering a career change as Paula herself once did.   In 2016 she launched her luxury online flower delivery service at paulapryke.com 

Paula’s latest book is Wedding Flowers, published by Jacqui Small, January 2015.

Floristry Now: Flower Design and Inspiration
The defining characteristic of Paula Pryke’s work is her consummate use of colour and structure – her bold colour choices first brought her to attention when she started out, and throughout her career she has never failed to challenge and excite. Where Paula leads, others follow. 

In this invaluable book Paula shares her design secrets. Above all, she shares her many wonderful designs with the intention to inspire and inform the reader:

'Over the years I have worked with flowers, I have trained a lot of staff and taught many who wanted to work with flowers. Most people just love and have a passion for flowers, and imagine that a life spent with flowers will be utopia. In fact, working with flowers is a lot more complicated than it first appears. It requires many skills beyond just being artistic and over time I have tried to define what it is to be a great floral designer. In this book I examine the way you need to see flowers to truly understand them and to create flower arrangements that don't just look great, they make someone's heart skip a beat.'
