Charlie Banks is a freelance florist in Warrington, Cheshire who works on wedding flowers, funeral flowers, events and corporate clients and also provides workshops for private parties and the community.
Charlie started out as a florist by helping out a friend with her wedding flowers in 2013, and from there it's grown year after year.
Having been slightly terrified of florist shops in the past, Charlie decided that one of the most important aspects she wanted do is to take the time to speak with her customers, some situations call for sensitivity and just listening to her customers requests.
After running her own florist shop, having two small children and two dogs, Charlie knows how hard it can be to take the time to sit down with brides or the bereaved, so now having made the decision to be a freelance florist, she is able to visit people at home and outside of normal working hours.
Charlie believes that you should have a personal and bespoke service with a trustworthy and honest florist.
