Kate and Clare opened Achillea in 2010.
Since opening we have made up loads of beautiful flowers, met some really wonderful people, been part of many special celebrations, worked on countless events for some amazing clients, and been featured in lots of great magazines.
We absolutely love what we do.
We love that every day is different, that each bouquet, customer and brief is unique.
We love that we get to be surrounded by flowers, scent and colour even on the greyest London days.
We love being part of special occasions, transforming spaces, changing moods.
We are really, really lucky.
