It was whilst on a career break from the commercial world of a major oil company in 2006 that Miranda discovered the immense pleasure of going back to her roots and working with flowers, having grown up surrounded by a beautiful garden and in a house where fresh garden blooms were frequently on the table. With on the job tuition from the owner of the leading floristry business in Ireland, where Miranda worked for a number of years; an Interior Design qualification; and with freelance experience of wedding floristry, Miranda was inspired to fulfil her floral and business dreams by setting up Flowers by Miranda, in Bray, in 2010.

From autumn 2011 to mid 2013 the business was based in Bratislava, Slovakia and now Flowers by Miranda has returned to Bray, Berkshire.
