Studio

Located in the heart of London in Wembley, our floral studio is a bright and open space, always buzzing with excitement. Here, we receive our flowers in the early morning and they are packed away into our fridge room. We use the freshest flowers, sourced directly from the growers, and assemble our bespoke bouquets by hand. Once assembled, the bouquets are lovingly wrapped, hand tied and boxed ready to be delivered to your doorstep. We are passionate about providing a first class experience to every single one of our customers and never compromise on quality. If you would like to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat, just let us know!

Kate Fine Stems

Kate

Co-founder & Creative Director

Kate has been working in floristry for years and has done everything from large scale event installations to small parties and from holding workshops to dressing window displays. As a creative director, Kate leads the team and is the source of inspiration behind Fine Stems. No day passes without her involvement and she oversees every single one of our projects.

Driven, enthusiastic and detail-orientated, Kate loves working with flowers and her signature style translates into everything we create here in Fine Stems. She is incredibly hard working but her bubbly personality and never-ending optimism mean she is a joy to work alongside even in the very early hours of the day!

Kate lives in leafy Richmond, London with her husband and two young daughters. She loves to surround herself with beautiful interior detail which often means a new tub of wall paint comes out several times a year.

Katerina

Co-Founder & General Director

Katerina directs the operational side of the business, sourcing the finest floral merchants, engaging one to one with clients and ensuring Fine Stems exceeds your most discerning expectations. She met her business partner Kate through planning her own wedding 3 years ago. Together, they have been working both as friends and partners, constantly exchanging ideas, inspiration and new plans for Fine Stems.

Katerina’s approach to life is perhaps best described in Mary Anne Roadacher-Hershey’s words: “Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practise wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Do what you love, and live as if this is all there is”. Her children are her greatest inspiration and she loves fine food, good company, great music and a wonderful atmosphere… the occasional glass of wine is also on the list!
