Who are the Mad Florists?

Florists Chrissy and Hannah are two women who describe themselves as mad crazy about flowers all the way. Others describe them as just mad. But there is no doubt in anyones mind that these ladies know their stuff and they love to talk and talk about flowers... and anything that springs to mind.

Chrissy and Hannah met whilst working in and managing one of the largest flower companies in the UK and their relationship has bloomed into one of the most liked and respected Florist duos within the industry. The online floristry company is the only one of its kind to receive a Global Queens Award for Industry.


Floristry enjoys great popularity with an estimated industry worth of three billion pounds to UK economy and is growing with both hobbyists and as a profession. Our audience will discover all Floristry has to offer in the capable hands of our two Mad Florists and their team of florists and students from the Mad School of Floristry.

Throughout the series we will dip into the many aspects of the floristry world, meeting a variety of characters all of whom are truly passionate about their craft.

Will it be a celebrity client in need of some floral designs? Or a Royal commission for an important social occassion. Or perhaps just a quintessential English country fete. Whatever the call, our ladies will be there showcasing their talents, educating us and no doubt getting up to some mischief along the way.

Each episode our Florists will be set a challenge which will allow the ladies and their team of floristry students to truly flex their creative flair and produce a unique showpiece worthy of their name.

Journeying far and wide to source the best flowers, talk to the biggest and often craziest of growers and get a unique behind the scenes look at the flower industry. The girls will have us marvelling at the vast scale and complexity of it all. Amazing viewers with what it takes to provide us with both the simplest and grandest of arrangements.

But it's not all just fun and hijinks, whether it's out and about or back at their country workshop the Florists will always find a moment to take us through the construction of a topical bouquet. Encouraging and cultivating a passion for floristry with an attainable appeal.

Think Hairy Bikers meets Choccywoccydoodah, The Mad Florists will be looking into local tastes and styles, stumbling on the surreal and enjoying the bizarre nature of showcase builds and designs. No matter what the occasion - from garden parties, to country weddings, from grand ballroom galas to vast charity events and some iconic Floral showcases such as Chelsea Flower Show - the Mad Florists will be there getting stuck in as only they can.

Throughout the series the Mad Florists will look to educate, entertain and surprise the viewers with the truly vast world that floristry has to offer while making us laugh and smile along the way.
