So, if you would like to use seasonal, scented gorgeous flowers and are not too fussy about having that exact rose you saw on Pinterest (grown abroad and probably out of season), then you may be on the right page.
Our flowers are best suited to brides seeking a natural, seasonal, ethereal, romantic look, reminiscent of days gone by (or even a tiny bit or a lot wild). Think greenery, woodland, leaves, trees, moss, gorgeous scented flowers, entirely in keeping with nature. Flowers your grandma knew – cornflowers, corn cockle, ammi, narcissi, anemones, ranunculus, larkspur, delphinium, veronica, foxgloves, bluebells, valerian, mints, peonies, lavender, English roses, clematis, vines, jasmine……. the list goes on and if you are not sure of the different varieties I am sure we can introduce you to flowers that will become your future favourites. There will always be herbs included, in particular a little sprig of our favourite rosemary that sneaks into every bouquet for remembrance and absent friends. See our Gallery page and take a walk through the seasons, we only wish the page could be scented. Scent plays such an important part in special events where flowers are involved and we try to create happy memories that may be recalled far into the future.
We’d love you to make contact to discuss your requirements and to receive a no obligation quotation. You will be welcome to walk the flower field to see how we grow – but be warned that if you find it overflowing with flowers you may find me crying as that means they have not been sold. Flower growing is a funny business, for market we must cut when they are still partly in bud so they have maximum lifespan but for weddings we need to pick at the exact optimum time for them to look good on the day which means watching the flowers very carefully indeed and some very early morning forays into the field. We do get reports of the flowers looking good 10 days after the wedding, which is wonderful, but it is the day that counts and those all important photographs that you will keep forever.
Now, if you are still reading, pick up the phone and make an appointment on 07794 207168. Don’t delay, our most popular months get booked up very quickly. We are a small business and only accept one wedding per day so that we may devote 100% of our time to your requirements.
Please note that at peak times of the year, we reserve the right to apply a minimum spend for bespoke wedding requirements.
