This year I've been growing bespoke flowers for brides through the summer to September, if you are looking for this service then please get in contact. Some of the venues I have been fortunate enough to work with this year have included, Healey Barn, Alnwick Castle, Capheaton Hall and Lambton Castle. I am very privileged to be working with some fantastic wedding florists across the region, and providing flowers and foliage for events in the summer months such as The Biscuit Factory Summer Launch 2017 and the New Writing North Northern Writers Awards 2017. I also recently gave a talk about my flowers and the growing process (and the glamour of the garden) at Harrogate Spring Flower Show on April 22nd.

If you'd like me to grow flowers for your wedding or event, I offer a range of options: from a bespoke service where we discuss the flowers you might like, and I grow them for you; a 'Picking Party' down at the flower farm with friends the day before the big event, or a fun DIY wedding where I supply buckets of freshly cut, seasonal flowers for you to arrange with friends and family as you wish. Take a look over some of the options I offer below.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful wonderful flowers- they were just perfect, a beautiful part of a beautiful day. And thank you also for being so incredibly helpful, it was such a joy to work with you.

Wedding options

Option 1: The DIY wedding

If you already have a band of willing and florally minded friends and family, then the Do It Yourself flowers by the bucket option is the one for you.

In its most simple terms, this means you give us an idea of colours and the sorts of flowers and foliage you are looking for, and in what quantities, and we grow them for you. 

A few days prior to the Big Day, you can come and collect your buckets of flowers, foliage and herbs, knowing that they are grown locally, and completely organically. And then it is up to you!

No airmiles. No pesticides. Just a little Northern nurturing.

Option 2: The Half DIY

If you like the idea of floral control, but you aren't sure if you want the pressure of putting together the more intricate pieces (Bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets and buttonholes), this option is for you. 

The Half DIY caters for the bride who is looking to get hands on with the floral arranging but wants to leave the central pieces to us. This is simple, you lay out quantities (by the bucket) of flowers, foliage and herbs and we'll have them grown and ready for you by the time the wedding comes around. 

As to the bouquet's and buttonholes, why not come along and choose the flowers you would like for your bouquet, and which herbs might most suit your groom? Then we'll put them all together for you, and deliver them on the day. Think of it as a collaborative effort between us and you. 

No airmiles. No pesticides. Just a little Northern nurturing.

Option 3: The Complete Package

If you're looking for something a little less DIY and a little more all encompassing, then the Complete Package option is for you. You get all the joys of seeing the flowers come together, and none of the hassle. 

In our consultation, we'll talk colours, styles and quantities and be in contact throughout the year, letting you know how your flowers are coming along. Closer to the wedding, you and your wedding party are invited to come and pick your own bouquet, bridal bouquets and buttonholes. 

While you tend to the rest of the wedding, my team and I be 'flowering up' in the background, transforming your venue. 

No airmiles. No pesticides. Just a little Northern nurturing.
