Hannah-Mae - RHS Chelsea Gold Medalist
Hannah-Mae joined Hilary's in 2014 and has quickly risen through the ranks to become an extremely capable florist, and has now been crowned RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year 2017.
Hannah-Mae is new to floristry, but she most defiantly could not think of a life away from flowers. Everyone at Hilary’s is truly amazing and is helping
Hannah-Mae gain great skills and knowledge to enable her to peruse her career. Hannah-Mae only started at Hilary’s as a Saturday girl at Christmas
time in 2014 but has progressed quickly within the florist industry to be a highly valued member of the team. She has received huge encouragement from
the team and has been inspired by Charlotte to enter competitions to follow in her footsteps.
Hannah-Mae recently entered the RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year competition, not only did she win a gold medal; she also won the prestigious title of RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the year 2017. Not only was it her first time at the Chelsea Flower Show, it was also her first competition!
Hannah-Mae competed in the prestigious RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year competition 2017, where she competed among other young florists under the age of 25 yrs. All the competitors were assigned the brief of creating a structure of a floral kite with the titled theme of 'Urban Streets and Summer Skies', and Hannah-Mae smashed it!
I think it’s impossible to choose one flowers as my favourite as I love so many… I do love peonies, hydrangeas and David Austin roses as they both have absolutely delicious scents.
I love how Peonies open and look absolutely beautiful, hydrangeas can really make the wow factor and there are so many different varieties of David Austin roses, they can completely change a bouquet and make it look amazing!
A word from Hannah-Mae
The wonderful thing about flowers is that there are so many different varieties, colours and scents. Flowers can completely change a place, a moment and your feelings. There is nothing greater than the happiness that you can create from the power of flowers.
