British wedding flowers – introducing Bride and Bloom

So if anybody didn’t notice, we’ve been shouting from the rooftops about British flowers over on the English Wedding Blog facebook page this month – and with lovely Claire‘s help I’ve been discovering some amazing florists whose work I’m desperately excited to share with you all.

First to leap to my attention was the fabulously creative Hannah from Bride and Bloom. Hannah showed me some photos of her flowers which had me swooning… she uses all of my favourite British flowers to create spectacular and characterful displays for weddings, and I think she’s pretty incredible… so I asked her to introduce herself and show you more!

“Hello! Well, I’m Hannah and my business is Bride and Bloom which offers a bespoke wedding flower and styling service using gorgeous seasonal British flowers. Inspired by nature’s array of colour and texture my style definitely has a wild and natural feel, so suits those after something a bit different.

“I pride myself in offering a super personal service to my Brides and Grooms and meeting my prospective couples is SO important to me! I know it sounds clichéd but I do LOVE a good wedding and hearing all the ideas; it is basically a chance for my couples to download their “vision” of their big day into my brain so I can help create the look they are after! I actually love this aspect as much as putting the flowers together!”

“It’s also important that my couples understand a bit more about British flowers and why we should use them…. they are certainly more characterful than imported flowers, are much more natural, romantic and they smell amazing! I use several local growers in Worcestershire and a few from Cornwall which not only means we’re keeping British businesses going but have a much lower carbon footprint as the majority of imported flowers travel over 3000 miles!!”

“I also offer workshops for budding DIY brides or those after an alternative hen do so I can spread a bit more floral love and teach people more about British flowers.”

“The photos as featured are from Beth and Phil’s wedding which was held up at Rock Village Hall, near Bewdley (25th April 2015)…. It was such an awesome day, made more so as I got to stay on for the entire day and evening… as wedding co-ordinator, not a guest!”

“This is a relatively new angle for me but it totally makes sense considering I spend a good amount of time discussing a couple’s wedding day with them (and also I get to see and smell the flowers for the rest of the day)! Beth and Phil’s colour palette was to be a mix of whites, greens and purples…. So of course I made use of the seasons offerings; tulips, stocks, lilac, alstromeria, scilla, ranunculus, apple blossom, freesia, muscari and forget-me-nots, which I used just for Beth and Phil…

“I hope it’s touches like that, that will stay with my couples, so that every spring when the forget-me-nots appear, they’ll reminisce to their wedding day.”

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings.
