About Nine Swords Design


Creative Director

I came to floral design through gardening, herbalism, and plant medicine, and my work is inspired by the healing power of wild nature and the seasonal beauty of the Bay Area. I love working with unexpected and under-appreciated materials, and use foraged, local, and sustainable ingredients whenever I can.

Nine Swords Design is wild art, inspired by place, community, and natural law. I create expressive, dynamic pieces that evolve with time. My materials are tough, and built for change: branches, grasses, native botanicals, driftwood, living plants. My work is a reflection of our landscape. It lives and dies, in constant motion — each arrangement exists anew each day.

    The flowers and the communication were perfect. Even though I only messaged two weeks in advance for my wedding bouquet, the flowers were stunning and exactly as in envisaged. The clarity and ease of communication was perfect.

    Nine Swords provided the most elegant arrangements for our City Hall wedding and reception. My bouquet turned heads and his floral installation became the talking point of the party. All and all, great work that evoked the natural beauty of the Bay Area and it’s seasons.

    William could not have made our wedding day more magical - from the ease of organization and idea creation to the execution of the project, Nine Swords is a 100/10. William is an extremely creative, warm, and generous person - we had several general concept conversations with him but immediately trusted him to provide us with the dreamiest floral design for our big day. From the centerpieces to the floral structures for the reception room to the floral crown and a bridal bouquet I could not have even dreamed of, everything was just perfect. I will be doing everything I can to preserve each piece for as long as possible. William also made the coordination of the rehearsal dinner flowers and the day of floral design a breeze- coordinated with our venue for load in and set up and was able to work around our chaotic wedding schedule to get everything set up! I cannot recommend Nine Swords enough - when we gave away some of our centerpieces at the end of the night, our guests - and the staff at our reception venue (!) all jumped at the opportunity to have some of the work in their homes. They are still contacting us about it almost a week later!!
