Wedding flowers are an essential and beautiful aspect of almost every occasion. An experienced florist will use their experience to advise and give you options to suit your preferred theme and taking into account the time of year. Aside from bridal bouquets, a florist will show you ideas for table centrepieces along with many other ideas about how to dress your wedding venue.
Planning flowers and centrepieces for your wedding can be a tricky task and that's why an experienced florist and designer, with your budget in mind, will be so invaluable.
Here’s some great ideas from wedding florists based in the North West from places like Manchester, Preston, Lancashire and the Lake District, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention Your North West Wedding magazine when contacting a wedding florist.
Seed & Wild is a bespoke wedding florist based in the little village of Warton on Lancashire's Fylde Coast. We're relatively new to the industry, having planned to launch right at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. It slowed us down for sure but definitely didn't stop us from doing what we love! Our floral designs are delicate and graceful, focusing on the finest details and interesting textures. Purposeful details like a scent heavily influence our arrangements, helping us to create meaningful memories for years to come. Just catching the smell of sweet peas or garden roses in the air always brings back feelings of nostalgia for me, and I hope to do the same for you.... read more
