Hello, I'm Becky, the florist behind the flowers (and every other aspect of the business) at Starry Skies. I'm originally from Northumberland but now live in Glasgow after a few years living in Edinburgh in between and I love Scotland - especially it's big night skies! I now live in southside with husband and little girl who also loves flowers.
I've wanted to do floristry for a long time, even when I was at uni studying something completely unrelated I would secretly wish I was working with flowers and 'creating'. Thankfully after following lots of inspiring florists who have helped push floristry in a new direction where the creative element doesn't fit into any rules or conventions, I started to think of this as a genuine career option.
It took a baby and pandemic for me to finally leave my role in the third sector behind and here I am now, working in my dream job (and still constantly learning). Weddings and events are my favourite jobs because the variety is endless and the creativity is stretched to make the right style and taste meet the budget, venue, and season.
I welcome any type of wedding, from micro to big and bold and anything in between. I love the variety in weddings and how much they can reflect the couple which is what I aim to do with the flower elements on the day. All my work is tailored to the couple and no two designs or end products are the same!
I do try and be as sustainable as possible in an industry that is fortunately improving all the time in this area. I like to try and buy locally grown flowers from Scottish flower farms where possible, I don't use floral foam, and I try and limit working with single use plastic.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at any time for all things flower related!
