IXIA Botanicals is a flower studio and garden, based in Nether Kellet, Lancashire, started by myself Hannah-Victoria in 2017. I design and create naturalistic, seasonally inspired designs for a limited number of weddings and events across North West, England. I also offer deliveries to local private houses, and teach seasonal classes and 1:1’s. From April to October my garden flowers are also available to pre-order each week by email, for collection from my studio.

I spent my childhood growing up in the rural English countryside, just a stones throw away from IXIA’s studio and half acre plot today. Having been raised in both a creative and agricultural household, it was inevitable that I would somehow find a way to combine both the creative arts and farming to create a career path of my own. Today my passion for floral design is paired with a love for growing the unusual, English elements, of which I design with today. The garden is my main source of inspiration, allowing my design style to remain seasonally attuned, tonal in colour palette, and romantic in nature, simply by following the natural rhythms of the the year.
