Ruby took over as owner of Always Flowers in early 2018, when the previous owner retired. Having grown up locally and founded several small businesses in the Essex area over the years, Ruby was keen to expand her creative talent with floristry. Over the past year she has loved learning new floristry techniques, sourcing new gifts and products for the shop, working with her talented flower team and getting to know the local Billericay community.
Ali has been a Florist for 13 years and has been with Always Flowers for seven of those years. She completed her Floristry degree at Writtle College in Chelmsford. Ali has a natural flair & passion for floristry & gardening. She enjoys going for walks with her children, gardening & loves nature. She enjoys springtime the most & her favourite flower is the Ranunculus....lots of delicate layers of petals, stunning colours and a good alternative to the Rose.
Josie studied floristry at Writtle University College in Essex, and trained alongside that at a local florist to gain as much floristry experience as possible. Josie joined the Always Flowers team full time when she finished her training and her favourite thing about working in the shop is seeing all the beautiful blooms delivered from Holland being transformed into bespoke hand-tied bouquets for customers. When Josie hasn't got her hands full of stems, she loves to dance or keep busy with arts & crafts.
Just like a Gerbera - she really is bright, cheerful and fills life with happiness.
Jodie has been working in the floristry industry for 23 years, and loves working with flowers every day. Using her creative skill and floristry techniques she has learnt over the years, Jodie creates bespoke designs with a unique twist using seasonal flowers and foliage. When she isn’t working, Jodie loves being outside and enjoys exploring the local area – come rain or shine.
Her favourite flower is the white amaryllis, as it stands beautifully tall and proud and reminds her of her best season- Christmas!
