Ronny Colbie

Founder & Creative Director

What was your most challenging job before opening up the RC brand?

For years I worked as the head wedding designer for a lead florist in Bath, Somerset called Flowers by Passion. My team and I were responsible for executing hundreds of weddings each year , ten per week during our busy season. It was undeniably the best training I could of asked for, but the hardest and most stressful job I’ve ever had, aside from launching my own brand. Most weekends you’d find me hanging off the top of a marquee pole, or building flower arches around entire church entrances.

What is your favourite flower?

Sanguisorba. Most people would not know this flower by name, or sight. It is tiny and delicate, grows white or red in colour, and adds a gorgeous final touch to every arrangement.

What do you get up to on your days off?

Most of my time off is spent away from London at my home in the Cotswolds with my partner Steve and our two dogs Teagan and Gia. Up there I watch films, potter around my garden and read books. In London, I enjoy a mooch around the shops, catching a show in the Westend and dining with good friends.

Assistant Shop Manager & Senior Florist

List three words that would sum up your design aesthetic?

Experimental, relatable and innovative.

What’s your favourite flower and why?

Hydrangeas. Since I was a little girl my Nan always had the most beautiful hydrangea bush in her front garden, and the memories these flowers hold are cherished as my Nan is no longer with us.

Why did you want to become a florist?

I always knew I wanted to work in a more creative environment as this is where I felt most at home. After working as a junior in a florist for two years I started to find my feet, and knew I was destined to brighten people’s day with beautiful flowers. Also, the job satisfaction was too much to walk away from. Since I started I have never looked back and each day I enjoy my job more and more.

How did you end up working with Ronny Colbie?

For most of my working career I have worked in Visual Merchandising in some regard. I have done everything from in-store installations, prop building and Project Management roles. I have always enjoyed expressing myself though numerous creative outlets and a move into flowers felt like a natural progression. I started off at Ronny Colbie in a seasonal freelance role, which lead to where I am today as the Studio Coordinator.

What’s your favourite flower and why?

I adore the rose ‘Montmartre,’ it’s a Garden Rose in dusty vintage purple. It’s intricate and soft with a real romantic feel in a unique shade.

List three words to sum up your favourite floral design aesthetic.

Dusty, romantic, modern. I love duskier muted flowers, pinks, eucalyptus, with bold pops of dark burgundy with wispy pieces throughout.
