Welcome to Sarah Matthews Flowers. If you are looking for a florist with creativity, attention to detail and passion, who uses top quality products and offers a truly personal service then look no further.
I specialise in Island-wide wedding and corporate floristry, with consultations taking place either at your venue, your home or at my shop in Brading – daytime, evenings and weekends.
I qualified with an NVQ in Floristry back in 1994 before going on to gain vital retail experience in a busy Interflora shop. I then completed 7 years as an exhibition florist for the NEC group in Birmingham, which included events such as the G8 Summit in 1998. In 2010, I took the plunge to become self employed and since then have developed great links with many other island wedding suppliers.
Sarah Matthews Flowers, as the name suggests, is a one woman band from consultations to ordering, designing to styling and everything in between. It keeps me busy but also gives a you a continuity of care that I think is so important.
How did I end up in Brading you ask? I gave up city life in my hometown of Birmingham in 2000 to raise my daughter somewhere a bit quieter. Now I’m mum to an 18-year-old and we’re living the dream of seaside living on the beautiful Isle of Wight.
I love springtime, exploring new places, walks on the beach and live music.
