Zara Reid

Floral Design

Hi! I’m Zara, the face behind Bracken and Rose and I’ve been designing with flowers for over 20 years now. Born in Manchester, then raised in the Peak District, I’m now based in Sheffield.

A qualified teacher of floristry, I also studied at University College Falmouth, gaining a Masters Degree in Authorial Illustration; but a lifelong passion for flowers eventually led me away from writing grown-up fairy tales onto art of another kind and the role of floral designer at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.

After 8 years as Garden and Events Florist I ‘retired’ to look after my first baby and have since focused on bringing beautiful florals to weddings and workshops across Sheffield and the Peak District.

I love to work seasonally, with what nature has to offer, the crooked stems, the colours and shapes that are unique to our countryside. I’m committed to foam free and sustainable floristry, I’m a forager, I want rose hips in October and cow parsley in May, bracken as it starts to change colour, rambling foliage, huge dahlias too big to fit in your hands and heady scented roses cut straight from the garden under a thunderous sky.
