Wedding and event flowers - Kerry

Maura Sheehy is the award-winning artisan flower farmer and florist who runs Maura’s Cottage Flowers which caters for weddings, corporate floral requirements, local deliveries and flower arranging classes.

Located on an idyllic,  sheltered hillside site just outside Tralee in County Kerry, I take great pride in farming the same parcel of   land that has been tended by several generations before me. I manage the flower-farm sustainably  and offer a bespoke service creating arrangements that are unique yet distinctive with an eye for colour. My flowers are scented, natural and always reflect the seasons.

After rearing our seven children, I followed my dream to study horticulture through distance learning with The Organic College in Dromcollogher Co.Limerick.

Specialising in wedding flowers and events, Maura’s Cottage Flowers provides an exceptional service, I aim to delight my customers with attention to detail and always endeavour to bring a personal touch to the business. My passion for  flowers is evident in every element of my designs. Customers have called my creations “original, breathtaking and stunning”. I sell flowers for all occasions and love to feel that my creations convey a message of thoughtfulness to the recipients.

I trialled a second business in 2017 called “Bloom with Maura” offering classes to individuals and groups on flower-arranging .  Classes usually take place in my studio but I also travel on request. My approach  is very relaxed and participants find the classes to be therapeutic.

My passion for flowers, strong sense of colour and design and my reputation for reliability, quality and freshness coupled with a desire to garden with care for the environment has seen my business grow very steadily over the last number of years.

Also catering for overseas customers,  I put people at ease,  allowing them to feel that they can entrust me  with the safe  delivery of the flowers of their dreams.

I love to upskill with the best in the business and regularly attend workshops in Leitrim with Leitrim Flowers and in Cork with Hanna from Hanako.

In addition to flower-farming and floristry, I am a columnist with Country Living magazine and often contribute to other publications. I have won a number of prestigious awards, my most treasured   being   The Kerryman Business award for Heritage and Environment.
