In 1993 Simon was asked to arrange the flowers for the smash-hit film ‘Four Weddings And A Funeral’.
His work is now much in demand for T.V. commercials, radio, films and premieres.
As the resident AT florist, Simon has regular appearances on ITV’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show and in addition to television work, Simon has commitments throughout the year to Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and the RHS and the BBC at Chelsea Flower Show.
The names of his clients are synonymous with style, flair and profile, and amongst them are such luminaries as His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Her Majesty the Queen, former US President George Bush, Her Majesty Queen Sonja of Norway, Sir Elton John, Nicky Haslam and Ringo Starr.
Simon created a fairytale setting in Ireland for David and Victoria Beckham’s wedding. Thandie Newton and Victoria Smurfitt have commissioned Simon for their weddings, as did King Constantine of Greece and the footballers Thierry Henry, Ashley Cole and Gary Neville.
Simon was thrilled and excited to be asked to provide flowers for the historic event of the wedding of HRH the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at Windsor Castle. To celebrate the 80th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, he was privileged to decorate the Royal Box at the Royal Opera House for a Gala Performance and, later in the year, to create magnificent vast flower arrangements to adorn the tables at the final private dinner held at the Ritz.
Most recently, Simon and his team provided the flowers for the party Her Majesty The Queen gave at the Mandarin Oriental the evening before the wedding of the Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. More than 50 crowned heads of state were present which is certainly a jewel in Simon’s crown!
Simon J Lycett Ltd provides fabulous flowers which are created with skill and imagination by a dedicated team of dynamic florists.
