The variety of British-grown flowers available is continually expanding with increasing demand. I include as many British-grown flowers in wedding florals as possible. Enter your wedding month and colour scheme below and discover the beautiful British blooms available.
In-season British flowers for your wedding
I create naturally-styled bouquets and displays, using British-grown seasonal blooms wherever possible. Traditional garden favourites supplied by our British nurseries and local artisan growers cannot be matched for their vibrancy, and just general tip-topness! Rustic flowers like blowsy peonies, pretty daisies and delicate powder-blue scabious (to name but a few) are bigger, better and fresher when sourced from British growers rather than imported. Using more British-grown flowers also helps reduce our carbon footprint, supports our environment and is perfect for eco-friendly weddings. For more information on British flowers availability and British-grown Flower of the Week see the Florissimo blog and social media channels, or use the form.
I learnt much of my floristry from a frenetically busy, city-centre florist in Canada, where my husband and I re-located for a few years. (Prior to this, I spent years in a frustrating, bureaucratic civil service job in Whitehall, doing research and statistics!) This florists’ store had exacting customers, including visiting actors and actresses, as well as high-profile sportsmen and women, and I was lucky to have worked with some talented and experienced florists.
After a few years at two different florists’ and completing floristry and business training, I returned home and started Florissimo here in Shropshire.
Since starting my own home-based business, I have really enjoyed being able to give each wedding and each display my full attention. I am a perfectionist and believe attention to detail is the only way with wedding, as well as corporate flowers.
I have loved getting into the look and feel of each particular wedding: the customer reviews that I value the most are those that say I’ve understood just what they wanted. I look forward to hearing from you about your vision.
