Shane Connolly

Shane is a renowned floral designer and ambassador for sustainable floristry. His clients range from great public institutions like The V&A; the RA and the National Portrait Gallery, and he is perhaps best known for his public work for The Royal Family, recently including The Coronation. Shane approaches these iconic moments with the same respect for nature, season and setting. Everything is thoughtful, in all senses of the word. He has designed events in countries as diverse as the USA and India, and always with the same aim: to leave the smallest footprint behind and be led by what is local and available.

Shane works with the RHS to improve sustainability in floristry in their annual shows, and is also a judge at RHS Chelsea.

He has written five books and teaches his approach to flower design all over the world, with its roots and ethos firmly in sustainability.
