Happy Sunday afternoon everyone! I hope you’re having a gorgeous day, enjoying some sunshine and having adventures. (I am!) It’s been a crazy few weeks here at the English Wedding Blog HQ and I am long overdue in introducing my superstar freelancer Claire Spiller to you all. Claire is the designer behind fabulous floral brand Garden & Wild. She’s been featured on the English Wedding Blog for her breathtaking wedding flowers, and a few weeks ago joined my little team (of two!) to help out on our Facebook page.
Thank you, Claire. You’re the best – I’m thrilled to have your help with our social media, I couldn’t do it without you! You’ve helped me discover some amazing British wedding businesses and I am more grateful than I can tell you.
Claire has an instinctive understanding of wedding styling. She told me, “my inspiration is basically the quintessential English wedding and what I love most about us Brits is our moments of quirky-ness and sense of humour that we can inject into our weddings too!” Claire is constantly online looking over all types of blogs and social media studying weddings, and she’s the perfect addition to the English Wedding Blog’s team (of me.) It’s nice to be Claire & Claire.
If you’re not already following the English Wedding Blog Facebook page, please join us there for preview pics from blog features and lots more of the beautiful things we love!
And do, please – because you’ll adore what you see – take the time to discover and admire Claire’s own creations at Garden & Wild. Claire says, “My work is very much inspired by the countryside around me, being a grower as well as a floral designer it is important to me that my designs truly reflect the beauty and colours of the seasons.”
Claire has been featured on the fabulous Coco Wedding Venues website, as well as on super blog Wedding Sparrow. She’s your go-to girl for wonderful British home grown flowers, and one of the most creative and talented floral artists working in the UK wedding industry.
Claire established Garden & Wild in 2013. She is now a recommended supplier to Bridwell Park – an exclusive, beautiful Georgian wedding venue in the heart of Devon. Her stunningly beautiful wedding flowers are perfect for couples seeking fine art and naturally inspired style. Garden & Wild uses British flowers and flowers grown in Claire’s dedicated cutting garden, blended with traditional market flowers to create stunning wedding designs with a unique and ethical/eco conscious edge.
