Briar Rose Design was born out of a love of all things wild and natural. Melanie at Briar Rose is a florist working in a relaxed and loose style from her country studio in central Scotland. She offers wedding flowers, funeral flowers and workshops throughout Scotland from Edinburgh and Glasgow, to Perthshire, the Borders, and everywhere in between.
Working as much as possible with British grown flowers she creates floral designs that tell stories; this could be through colour themes, scents, or individual components. These unusual bouquets and floral designs celebrate all the beautiful textures, fragrances and movement of British flowers and foliage and Mel loves working with alternative couples and lovers of all things botanical. She enjoys working on non traditional, relaxed weddings and coming up with creative responses that make each design unique.
Throughout history flowers have been used in folklore, traditional medicine and even as a secret language in Victorian times. Every floral design from Briar Rose Design takes into account these narratives to create a new tale of their own, and all wedding flowers come with their own wedding story explaining these symbolic meanings.
