As featured in our 5th edition of THE quintessential MAGAZINE: Nikki Tibbles, owner and Creative Director of the luxury London-based florist Wild at Heart. After an early career in advertising, Nikki Tibbles decided to conquer new frontiers and launched her very own flower workshop. Being deeply passionate about flowers and incredibly gifted with a natural sense for design, she was able to quickly build a reputation for exceptional quality and creativity. Twenty years later, Nikki Tibbles is one of Britain’s most renowned florists with several stores in London and a nationwide delivery service. On top of that, she is an acclaimed event stylist and design guru. Our international photographer Nassima Rothacker met Nikki in her flagship store on Pimlico Road and captured some truly inspiring images …
Nikki works with thousands of clients each year, who come to her for the originality and personal touch that she has become famous for. For Nikki, Wild at Heart is ‘more than just flowers’, it is ‘about a spirit of generosity and loving what we do, an understanding and appreciation of all our amazing clients’.
‘I always wanted to do something creative; I can’t write, paint or draw, working with flowers is my medium. I love working with colour and nature, it’s ever changing and each moment is different.’ Nikki draws her inspiration from ‘everything from nature to fashion and architecture.’ Her love for flowers and all things floral serve as inspiration for her distinctly luxurious bouquets. Locally grown, seasonable blooms being her absolute favourite, every Wild at Heart bouquet is handmade with love and always of the highest quality.
Being a huge dog lover (pictured below with the very handsome chap, Reuben) Nikki is also an avid supporter of the global charity movement No To Dog Meat. If you want to find out more about this charity or are even interested in supporting it, please visit their website.
