The Team

Lavender Green Team

  • Sue Barnes
    Sue's understanding of design, and passion for the event industry as a whole is prevalent in all of her work. She specialises in creating bespoke designs for individual clients, who require innovative and completely original responses.
  • Alice Groom
    With a design background in fashion and a majority of lifetime spent dreaming of becoming a pattern cutter, Alice decided to take a career U-turn into the unknown world of flowers. For someone who can't even look after a simple house plant, Alice finds herself easily excitable by new breeds of flowers, unusual colour combinations and creative solutions; whether dressing the table for an intimate dinner for 25 or an end of year celebration for 300! Alice has always wanted to create beautiful things people admire, an end product people can capture and treasure, and by turning her trade from fashion to flowers she has found she can do just that! Some say she’s slightly unique and many say manic but we like to put it down to just doing something she adores and being able to do it every day.
  • Maddie Dawkins
    Maddie has recently joined Lavender Green from a luxury, five star hotel background and has a huge amount of experience in organising high end weddings and events.
  • Georgia Hylton
    Georgia has started working with Lavender Green Flowers after having five years’ experience in retail where she excelled in customer service. Georgia is now excited to use her vast knowledge and skills in the events industry to get creative with florals. In her free time she enjoys baking mostly chocolatey things, wild nights out and discovering new pop up restaurants in London with her friends.
  • Izzy Player
    Izzy joins us from a catering & events background. Having previously worked for one of London’s top catering companies, she has experienced first-hand what it takes to plan and manage a successful event. Despite her foodie background, Izzy has always had a passion for all things floral, and is known amongst her friends for her ‘green fingers’ and knowledge of flowers. When Izzy isn’t busy designing floral works of art, she can often be found cooking up culinary delights in the kitchen or Lycra clad cycling around the Surrey Hills.
  • Tom Sokolowski
    Tom has been with us for 9 years now. As our Transport Manager we find his knowledge of London and almost every venue indispensable. Tom makes sure that every job big or small is delivered, installed and collected by his friendly team of drivers, ensuring professionalism and care goes in to each and every event.
  • Scott Sansum
    With over 15 years of experience, and a reputation for being one of the most creative florists in the industry, Scott works closely with the sales team to produce on brief proposals for clients
    Scott’s skills don’t stop with floristry as he is also a whiz in the kitchen where he bakes many cakes – much to our delight!
