Established in 2013 after 6 years previously in the industry and relocating to Derby,
“I started what was called 'Kelsey Cross Florist' back in 2013, after leaving my hometown in Nottinghamshire and my previous job as Head Florist after the shop was sold. Originally working with friends and friends of friends weddings to further expand my portfolio, I then started to build up a good reputation and a good set of skills along the way. I relocated to Derby to be with my then, fiance, but finding I wanted to further expand my challenges, I opened my bricks and mortar shop, based in the Eagle Market and trading as 'Blackboard and Blossom'. After just over a year, I found with my wedding work and recommendations expanding, I had to concentrate my attention back to its roots and dusted off the studio worktops, which is where I run from now, at my home in Derby. I love offering a friendly, informal service and getting to know every couple to make your wedding completely unique. That's what is so great about weddings, so I'm here to help you achieve it!"

"I was the lucky winner of one of Kelsey’s arrangements and I’ve ordered flowers from Kelsey on a few occasions for both collection and delivery. Gorgeous flowers, excellent service and an amazing talent for beautiful, colourful arrangements. Kelsey is so helpful and talented. I’d really recommend Kelsey and will be returning for more flowers"
