Win: A £50 bouquet from Wonder in the Wild
“When I design arrangements, I throw out the rule book,” says Wonder in the Wild’s Lisa Doran. “I’d describe my style as very wild and natural; a bit bohemian. I choose seasonal blooms that I love and arrange them loosely in staggering heights, like they would grow in a meadow, to create a natural look.”
It was styling her own wedding which inspired Lisa to take classes in floral design. Having worked in marketing and events for years, she then started Wonder in the Wild as “a bit of a side hustle” in 2018 after having her two daughters. Fast becoming known for her expressive displays, she’s since worked on numerous weddings, including one in Tuscany.
A firm believer that flowers can lift spirits, Lisa has also collaborated on wellness workshops at hilltop retreat Paus Cambridge, teaching floral crown sessions between the outdoor vinyasa yoga and hot-tub relaxation. “I love floral design because it allows me to be free with my own creative thoughts,” she explains. “It’s a bit like therapy to me.”
To celebrate staycation season, Lisa is giving Velvet readers the chance to win a £50 bouquet of seasonal blooms to put you - and your home - in happy, holiday mood.
