What We Do

About us

Welcome to Distinctive Elegance
I’ve alwavs been creative and love anything to do with design. I love nothing more than working in my studio at home in Surrey. But, my greatest passion of all is creating stunning weddings and events using beautiful flowers, lighting and decor, ensuring each tiny detail is executed perfectly.
When I’m not working and making couples’ dreams happen, you’ll find me spending time with my family and gorgeous grandchildren and taking the dogs on long walks in the Surrey Hills.
