Uncut ! Flowers with Jeff Leatham at the Four Seasons

 Jeff Leatham is the artistic director at the George V hotel and how very creative and clever he is ...
The best bit, however, is that he is also absolutely gorgeous and friendly - and fun.

We had a good laugh when I decided to style this photo by asking to have a cloth on his flower trolley removed for this shot to which he joked, oh look, she is directing the shoot now !
I know how much that will amuse you, Sarah and Leah - and wouldn't Jan just roll her eyes !!!

Thank you, Elizabeth for presenting me with Jeff's gorgeus book all those years ago - I did not think I would ever be asked to join him in a photo !

Sally, Jeff wanted you to have his business card as he his heading to Australia soon and will be conducting classes in Melbourne and Sydney - worth a trip, maybe?

Each week thousands of beautiful blooms arrive at the hotel where Jeff and his team design and assemble stunning displays for all to enjoy.
Sally, you know the style from the TV show, Flowers Uncut but for others, the flowers are often leaning a little and arranged in assorted containers of all shapes and sizes which adds to the visual impact.
Jeff likes to use massed groupings of stems in one or two colours which creates a very dramatic effect.

As you have now read our Friday lunch at the George V was a most memorable event and, I might add, worth every single centime, even if it is now back to daily baguettes !!!


  1. OMG Joanna i can't believe you meet Jeff , I love love him !!!! i'm so jealous !
    I'm so enjoying your adventures ....

  2. Still laughing about this and you styling that shot. My golly, I suppose it is natural instinct. You should have your own Foxtel show. xx
