Event Florist Borrowed Light Floral Studio is a partnership between experienced, London-based florists Sarah Purchase and Claudia van Rensburg.


Together they have over 30 years’ experience in the floral industry, working at scale on large art installations, private and corporate events and weddings.


Claudia and Sarah are passionate about design excellence and strive to create installations that amaze, inspire and reflect the beauty of nature, art, architecture and the Great Outdoors.

Favouring British grown flora and eco-friendly products, Borrowed Light Floral Studio creates unique floral designs of supreme quality in a sustainable way.  This includes growing some of their own flowers and foliage on an allotment they own in North London.


Sarah and Claudia first met in 2010 and worked together as florists until 2018 when they decided to form their partnership Borrowed Light Floral Studio in Walthamstow, North London.
