UK: "It's just surreal, reflecting back and thinking I was actually a part of that"

A small, family-run floristry business played a part on the national stage for the Coronation of King Charles III.

Floral Media are artisan flower growers based in Caunton, near Newark, and supplied seasonal British flowers to be displayed in Westminster Abbey during the Coronation service, in the Quire, and around the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

Business owner, Paula Routledge, said: "It's just surreal, reflecting back and thinking I was actually a part of that."

"We belong to Flowers from the Farm, which is a national scheme of UK growers, and they gifted the flowers for the Coronation.

"There were about 80 of us that supplied two buckets each. We are all British flower growers, and they were collected right from the Isle of Skye, then over to Inverness, down through Scotland, working their way down the country, and ended up in the Abbey being sorted by the designer, Shane Connolly.
