Meet Laura MacPherson from Laurel Silk Florist.
Q – Tell us about your company.
Laurel Silk Florist specialises in faux flower bouquets and arrangements for weddings and special occasions. All my designs are made with high-quality materials, and I love to create products that look as realistic as possible. One of the great benefits of silk arrangements is that they last for many years, making them a special keepsake. As a trained florist with more than 12 years of experience, I have worked with many couples to create the perfect design for their special day.
Q – What services do you offer?
I can provide silk flower designs for the bridal party, including bouquets, buttonholes, corsages, hair flowers/crowns, flowergirl wands and much more. I also create custom centrepieces, garlands, ceremony flowers and top table arrangements styled to suit your theme and colour scheme. I have a range of designs available on my website, but I also love to work with couples to make custom packages. All of my products can be posted across the UK, which is ideal for couples who want to do the decorations themselves or are travelling abroad for a destination wedding.
Q – How long before the wedding should couples get in touch?
The minimum time I recommend is eight weeks before the wedding day, but ideally, get in touch around six to 12 months before to allow plenty of time to create the designs, especially for large wedding packages.
Q – What’s your favourite part of the job?
I love getting feedback from my couples when their flowers arrive and after their special day. I’ve had lots of lovely messages to say that the guests were amazed when they found out that the flowers weren’t real.
Q – Do you have any top tips for couples looking for their wedding flowers?
My top tip would be to look for a florist whose work reflects the style of your wedding. For example, I feel my work is romantic and garden- inspired, but I also like to make quite rustic-style bouquets. When you first contact your supplier, it’s always useful to send a few pictures of bouquets and arrangements you like as well as the colour scheme you’re planning for the wedding.
