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
    Having looked after hundreds of weddings in 5* hotels in London, Maddie came to Lavender Green Flowers with a vast amount of experience in all things weddings! Looking for a change, a challenge, and something a little more creative, Maddie works alongside Sue creating bespoke designs to make every Bride and Groom's wedding day as unique as the couple themselves.
  • 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.
  • Sofia Todd
    Sofia has joined Lavender Green Flowers as she desires creativity in her work and for someone that likes to do something different every day, the world of flowers and events is very intriguing. Sofia’s original style once sparked ideas of her being a fashion designer and she studied at The Fashion Retail Academy, however she now wants to turn her visionary skills towards florals. She likes to think she is a bit of a gym bunny but with all the cakes around, it looks like she won’t be running the marathon next year.
  • Maria McKechnie
    Maria has worked as the Accountant for Lavender Green since 2002, where she has seen the Company grow from 10 employees to current 40 employees.
    Maria’s background was in Hotels, where she held the position of Group Financial Controller for 15 years.
    Maria has a great wealth of knowledge about the business and has seen it grow from strength to strength.
  • 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!
