My Story

Hello and thank you for taking the time to view Knot & Bloom. I'm guessing that you're here because you're getting married yourself or looking for ideas to help a bride or bridesmaid or even a mother of the bride! I hope you enjoy what you find and if you're reading this then you'd like to know a little more about me so here goes and I'll keep it brief I promise!

Knot & Bloom is my passion and a most enjoyable way to spend my days. After many years of working as a Creative Director in a corporate world I decided to take the plunge, step away and work on bringing my own creative ideas to life. My passion for all things vintage stems from an early age of finding bits and pieces in my mum's sewing box and creating something new with them. After studying textiles I was lucky enough to land my first job working in the textile archive at Liberty of London which was an amazing treasure trove of prints and patterns. Each day was a new discovery; finding a book of coffin liner samples from the 1800's to browsing the most exquisite 1920's woven scarf samples, it was a magical experience.

When it came to my own wedding I knew I wanted to design my own dress and accessories and looked to source vintage textiles, silk flowers and beads as inspiration. I began putting pieces together and the idea of making something unique from these vintage pieces to wear on your special day was born. The joy of creating and wearing a one-off that I'd made along with the happiness of my wedding day was something special that I know want to share with other brides. 

Every time I'm looking for inspiration pieces I never know what I might find and it always amazes me the exquisite colour tone and special quality vintage pieces have. It's such a joy to take something so beautiful with its history and bring new life to it for a future bride.

Being involved in a brides special day is a joy and privilege so I hope the pieces we currently have available in The Boutique are what you're looking for. If not why not message us with your ideas as we'd love to hear from you!
