MEET THE MAKER BEHIND SAGE & CO.
SAGE & CO. are luxury floral designers, based in the heart of Sussex. Offering services for weddings, events and commissions.
Founder Vanessa takes inspiration from nature, art, her travels and the beautiful countryside of her home county of Sussex.
Vanessa enjoyed a 10 year career as an Event Manager at some prestigious London and Sussex venues before launching SAGE & CO. in 2018.
" TO ME, IN MY EVENT MANAGING DAYS, THE EVENT WAS NEVER COMPLETE UNTIL THE FLORALS ARRIVED. THE ABILITY THE FLORALS HAD TO COMPLETELY TRANSFORM A SPACE WAS UTTER MAGIC...I WAS HOOKED! "
Vanessa's career in events allowed her the opportunity to develop a sharp eye for detail and to hone her skills in event design and logistics.
She is passionate about bringing a collaborative and cohesive feel to your event, by working closely with your chosen suppliers.
" MY APPROACH TO FLORAL DESIGN IS TO DRAW ON NATURAL SHAPES FOR MY ARRANGEMENTS, WHETHER THAT BE FOR A LARGE INSTALLATION, A CENTREPIECE OR A BOUQUET "
" CREATING DEPTH AND LAYERS ALSO TAKE A VERY IMPORTANT ROLE IN MY WORK. THE EYE SHOULD DANCE AROUND THE DESIGN AND ENHANCE THE EXPERIENCE "
SAGE was created, and the CO was added to represent the army of people that support my business and allow me to do what I do - family, friends, suppliers, growers, fellow industry professionals, my wonderful clients and last but by no means least, the amazing group of freelancers who support me.
My wonderful team of talented freelancers come and support me on an event by event basis. They are the lifeblood of SAGE and I am so grateful for their positive energy and work ethic, and for always putting a smile on my face!
AND OF COURSE WE CANNOT FORGET ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MEMBERS OF THE TEAM...PIP THE PUP!
As lovers of the natural world, we try to do our bit to preserve this beautiful planet. All of our designs are create without the use of floral foam. The micro plastics and chemicals in floral foam are extremely harmful to the environment. Therefore by using a foam free florist you are not only receiving spectacular flowers but you are also doing your part!
