Two of the UK’s most sought-after wedding experts have relocated to Cornwall.
Nickell has been creating floral masterpieces for weddings, photoshoots and high-profile events for 28 years. Cornish by origin and upbringing, he first became interested in flowers whilst working as a National Trust guide at Cotehele.
Inspired, he took up an apprentice position with a Plymouth florist whilst studying for a City & Guilds qualification before moving on to London in the nineties to take up an event floristry job at Harper & Tom’s in Notting Hill.
Gethings, meanwhile, has a background in sales management – working for blue chip companies including British Telecom and Orange – before deciding on a complete career change and becoming a wedding planner 12 years ago.
Since then, he has established an international clientele and a reputation for creativity, style and meticulous attention to detail that has seen him take charge of some widely acclaimed events – including a recent three-day wedding for a London-based couple at Boconnoc estate near Lostwithiel which was featured in Vogue Japan and for which Nickell did the flowers.
Now settled in a small village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, the couple will continue to work on weddings across the UK. Nickell is also planning to open a flower school.
