Aesme was founded in 2015 by sisters Alex and Jessica. We deliver flowers to homes and businesses in London, create arrangements for weddings, events and special projects across the UK and teach floral design classes throughout the year at our studio in Shepherd's Bush.
Our work is informed by the seasons and inspired by the history of the English garden. A shared love of old fashioned flowers - wild foxgloves, heritage roses and scented sweet peas - is matched by our approach to flower arranging, favouring the flower frog and chicken wire technique. We aim to elevate and update traditional methods, drawing on contemporary influences of colour and form to create floral designs that are both nostalgic and refreshing. We grow our own flowers, herbs and foliage in a cutting garden in Hampshire. Scented daffodils and narcissi, striped and fringed tulips for spring; translucent, silky Californian poppies, clouds of wild carrot and Ammi majus in summer with cosmos and foxgloves; autumnal Japanese anemones and richly-coloured dahlias; scented English roses from June to October.
