Heritage open day, Florists in history and buttonholes
Social media for Flowery people - Does it work?

Last minute wedding flowers, Seasonal, Scented and Sustainable.

As our wedding season draws to a close, i thought i'd let you have a peek at one of Septembers Flower orders, that went off  to Dean and Maria's Marriage Celebrations, in a pub in London.

We seem to have specialised in Last minute wedding flowers this year, and unlike a lot of florists who have to order in from wholesalers, and worry about if the Channel Tunnel is going to be working this week, we can just walk out onto the field and cut more flowers. Luckily, even though we've had at least 4 weeks this year where the number of DIY wedding buckets has doubled between Monday and Friday, we've managed to fulfil nearly every order, and all the ones where particular flowers, or colours weren't a make or break feature.

For this wedding, DIY was originally an option, but in the end we did the Jam jar table posies as well. Dean had loved a blog where i included a picture of blue cornflowers, and he wanted them for his buttonholes. Marie had seen my pictures and liked most of the flowers, and just wanted something to go with the peach and pink colours of the bridesmaids . With a lovely easy Theme like that, we had lots and lots to pick from on the field.

Usually when i'm preparing wedding flowers I never remember to take photographs until the flowers are in the car boot, But luckily, it was a day when Emma Davies was with me taking field photos, so we have a record of the Jam Jars, Buttonholes and Bouquets that went off in the Groom's brother's car.

So here's what we love doing at Plantpassion, using fresh, seasonal, scented and sustainable flowers to make unique displays.

Everything wrapped (no plastic of course, - all biodegradable/ recyclable) ready to go off in the boot of the car.

Of course because I don't often get to see the bride and groom, I sometimes don't know how the flowers have been received. So it's lovely to get this on Monday morning

"Dear Claire

we wanted to say a massive thank you for the flowers for our wedding. They looked amazing. Special thanks for putting everything in jars for us - everything was perfect

very best wishes

Maria & Dean"


Now although we love our last minute Brides and Grooms, you don't have to wait to book your flowers for weddings and parties next season. So if you already know when you'd like some fresh seasonal flowers, - please do let us know
