Based in South London, our premises occupy three vast railway arches linked by a huge day-lit atrium. Here clients meet Simon and the brilliant team to discuss their events, returning to view sample arrangements as their themes develop.
Born and raised in Warwick, Simon has been fascinated by flowers ever since he was seven years old and feels very lucky that he is able to work with them. He loves the buzz of creating dreams and magical settings within a world where everything’s possible, and the words, “can’t do” are never uttered!
The relationship we have with our clients is of great importance to us. This, combined with the pleasure in seeing events come together is what inspires our very personal approach to all our clients’ varied requirements, be they corporate receptions or private family celebrations.
“We of course knew about SJL flowers – but my parents were completely blown away. Not just by your flowers, but your kindness, your thoughtfulness and complete professionalism. You have such a natural talent, not only with flowers but also with people.”
“You always make my job easier because of the picture you create in the venues. You and your team are simply the best and I love you for it.”
“It has been marvellous having Simon’s wonderful floral artistry adorn Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons over the years. Simon has such a natural creative flair and we always welcome him to share his skills with us and our Royal Horticultural Society guests.”
“Simon’s originality and inventiveness, coupled with a real knowledge of flowers makes him, for me, a matchless florist.”
“Simon Lycett is the most inspirational floral designer working in Britain today. It’s impossible not to be revved up by his infectious enthusiasm.”
