Award-winning florists Mark Welford and Stephen Wicks opened their flower shop, Bloomsbury Flowers, in 1994. Their mission was to make their arrangements as theatrical as possible, but also to keep them simple and classic. Mark and Stephen believe that, even with the most modest bunch of flowers, it's entirely possible to create something gorgeous. The "Bloomsbury Boys" work with many high-profile clients, including the Royal Opera House, Firmdale Hotels, which have hotels in London and New York, and many venues in and around London.
