Darling Buds of Sussex - Wedding Events and Floristry
I am a Lewes based Wedding and Events Florist lucky enough to work from my home garden studio and able to utilise to the full the bounty from my garden to add extra special touches of lavender, rosemary, honeysuckle or jasmine in beautiful bouquets.
For me floral design is an extension of my love of gardening and my training as a textile artist, My natural style is exuberant, innovative and eclectic using best quality local and seasonal blooms with generous helpings of glorious foliage and herbs. I also take huge pleasure in sourcing those components of design and finishing touches that make all the difference- for example authentic urns, vintage vases and luxurious ribbons to add texture, drama, character or good old fashioned charm.
Since I work for myself I have the time and freedom to explore, experiment and push the boundaries of floral design, it also allows me to spend quality time with my brides – getting to know them and what look and mood they want to achieve from their wedding flowers.
I pride myself in offering a genuinely different service which is unhurried and informal directing and suggesting as necessary to achieve a coherent and optimum overall floral design scheme. Venues vary from an intimate village hall reception to a rambling rustic Sussex barn or a smart county hotel- all bring their own charm and are challenging and enjoyable in equal measure.
Our most recent commission introduces a gorgeous new local venue – Rathfinny Wine Estate in Alfriston- set in acres of rolling countryside with far reaching views over the sea now covered in vines for a new label Sussex Sparkling wine. Here the majestic tasting rooms will be dressed and adorned with the most beautiful garden roses and peonies in a soft romantic blush and pale pink colour scheme. There is something about a vineyard setting that is so totally scrumptious !
During the winter months the Wedding Season slows a little -so it gives time to reflect and plan and meet brides for the coming year. It also allows a little indulgence over the Christmas period where I have started to offer 2 hour workshops to small numbers of game ladies with a creative itch and the desire to make their own super stylish and contemporary festive door wreaths. A fun and practical activity with mince pies, a glass of sherry and Bing Crosby cooing in the background to get us in the spirit of Christmas.
As well as weddings and workshops we love a challenge, adore a collaboration and altogether want to make the world a more fragrant and flowery place...
