Press Reviews

Leafing through page after page of stunning photos in Funeral Flowers - the complete journey is the floral equivalent of gazing into the windows of a high class patisserie. But unlike the pastry chef who keeps shtum about their baking secrets, author Tina Parkes is all too willing to share her knowledge.
