Pricing & Costs
- A Yorkshire based floral designer and flower grower I bring you the charm of the British garden and woodland. My favourite arrangements include roses, peonies or dahlias, depending on the season, and I love to include trailing foliage such as ivy, jasmine, clematis, honeysuckle or passionflower. I grow many of the flowers myself and source most of the rest from other local flower growers. I grow without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilisers in a wildlife friendly manner. I love working in old venues that have period features and have special training in decorating in listed buildings. I cover an area which includes Skipton, Ilkley, Harrogate, Leeds, Bradford, York and parts of the Yorkshire Dales in the counties of North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire and East Lancashire. If in doubt about whether I cover your area, please drop me a line or give me a call!

Once I have checked if your date is available, I will discuss your ideas and requirements either via email or at a meeting. I will then give you an initial quote.

It is best to contact me early, as dates during the peak wedding season are filling up fast!
