Flowers are so powerful, they can evoke memories, enhance occasions and lift the spirits like nothing else.
Never is this more apparent than at a wedding. A simple venue can become extraordinary, an understated dress can be lifted to make a unique style statement, unforgettable arrangements can create a talking point for years to come.
All of this and more can be achieved with the perfect wedding flowers.
Create your dream wedding with Francesca Sharp Flowers
"I have been creating wedding flowers for nearly thirty years and I love it because every wedding is completely unique.
Couples come to me with their wedding flower ideas and together we work on creating the look and feel that they want to achieve within the budget that they have. I have worked on every type of venue over the course of my career as a wedding florist so whatever you have in mind, I am sure I can design flowers that will both compliment and enhance your space.
Fashions change and colours come and go but beautiful British homegrown flowers never go out of style. My ethos has always been to bring the outside in and make the most of the amazing flowers and foliage that we grow locally here in Britain.
My designs are inspired by seasonal flowers that can be found in the gardens and hedgerows surrounding the wedding venue, I can often be found foraging and I grow most of the flowers that I use myself in my orchard.
Whatever your colour scheme, style and venue, the British countryside will never let you down with its bountiful harvest. Come and visit me in my cutting gardens and lets create your perfect wedding together."
Enhance your Venue
The right flowers can completely transform your wedding venue
Whether you have chosen a traditional countryside church, a remote barn, a village hall or a modern hotel ballroom. Whatever your wedding venue, your choice of flowers can help to turn the ordinary in to something extraordinary.
Most couples choose to transfer the floral arrangements from the ceremony venue to the reception venue so you will need to consider this when deciding on the size and style of your displays. Pew ends could be turned in to table centrepieces, flower arches could be taken from the church entrance to create a backdrop for the top table, pedestal arrangements for the alter could be used to frame the doorway of the reception room. The possibilities are endless.
Using seasonal flowers and foliage can make a huge difference to your wedding budget and the more foliage you use, the less expensive the arrangement. Francesca will advise couples on how to get the most out of your wedding flower budget using local, homegrown or foraged flowers and foliage and using each arrangement more than once during your wedding day can all help to ensure you get the wow factor you desire without sacrificing too much of your budget.
