It’s a bold claim, but we’re backing it – we think your florals will likely be one of the most exciting elements of your wedding day. Whilst you can craft a concept and a colour scheme, you never know exactly how your blooms will turn out on the day which is both exciting and nerve-racking! Don’t leave it up to chance and grab a sensational florist, one whose work you adore, and you’ll be sure to get one of the greatest surprises of your life.
Whether you’re eloping with just a bouquet or boutonniere or throwing half your budget into blooms, you’ll do well to consult this here goldmine of a list. From quirky to bold, romantic to conceptual, we’ve covered all bases. At the very least, your Insta feed will be all the more glorious for it (just in time for spring!) We update this list annually so we’re always referring you to the best in the biz.
