About Gail

I’m Gail from Florio Designs.

I love creating! I have been making from a really early age, but for the last 10 years or so, I have been mainly creating alternative wedding bouquets. Whether its fabric, beads, feather or brooches, I create bespoke and unique bouquets in a variety of materials.

I also make matching bridal accessories, such as tiaras, combs or fascinators and on occasion wedding Jewellery. I love working in the bridal industry.

I am based in London but work on commissions worldwide.
