Full Description
Let the wild in… Welcome to Foxgloves and Alice, the home of quirky wedding flowers with a touch of the wild. From my Hertfordshire studio, I create contemporary, bohemian arrangements that celebrate the wonderful vibrancy of British flowers. I’m passionate about sourcing beautiful flowers and turning them into colourful, sculptural and fragrant works of art. Using foliage, berries and herbs as well as blooms, grown in the UK whenever possible, I work closely with each of my couples to design a suite of modern, eclectic florals that represent you and your style. Your love story is beautiful and unique, so why should your wedding flowers be any less so? To find out more, get in touch and let’s have a chat. I can’t wait to hear about your wedding plans. I love nothing more than the feeling of bringing the outside indoors – of creating the atmosphere of a secret garden or hidden forest glade in beautiful venues across the UK. I’ve had the pleasure of working in a wide variety of locations, from stunning woodland spaces, to rustic barns and urban warehouse venues – bringing quirky, bohemian floral design to each. There’s no formula for my wedding flowers. Each wedding I work on is completely bespoke, and I design bouquets, buttonholes, flower crowns, table centres and other installations that are totally unique to you. I take on a limited number of weddings a year, ensuring I can devote time to creating and developing a completely individual suite of florals for each one. You won’t find structured, uniform bouquets tied with satin ribbon here. Starting with a relaxed consultation at my studio, we’ll have a chat about the plans for your big day. We’ll look at colours, textures and adornments together to build up a moodboard of seasonal flowers that sum up your style. It’s important for me to get to know your venue, to look at the spaces available and visualize how each area can be transformed with flowers and foliage.

We were blown away
To be honest, I don't think I can put into words how grateful we both are in your incredible work with our flowers on the big day. It has been wonderful visiting you and getting to know you in the lead up to the wedding. We were blown away when we saw the tipi and how it came alive with your creativity and beautiful arrangements. I was completely in love with all of our bouquets, especially mine, it was like you'd been inside my mind and created more than I could imagine. Thank you so much for being so wonderful and helping us to enjoy the wedding prep process. We feel so lucky to have worked with so many lovely, talented suppliers - we have said we want to do it all over again just to see you all haha

I trusted Kerry entirely
Kerry is an absolute godsend. She is creative, inspirational and has an absolute heart of gold! After just our first meeting, I trusted Kerry entirely. She understood my vision for our special day and I felt so at ease that she could really execute everything down to the final little details. She decorated the venue to make it look utterly magical, produced the most gorgeous bouquets and created beautiful arrangements for the church. Every change or last minute request I threw at Kerry, she embraced whole heartedly with a huge smile and bundles of enthusiasm. Kerry and her team worked tirelessly not only the day of my wedding but the day before too. She had even collected and cleared the venue even before I had time to stir the day after as well! Our guests loved her beautiful arrangements as well as her entertaining garden games. I cannot thank this wonderful lady and her team enough. Words cannot really explain how much her help and support meant to me throughout the whole process. I wouldn't have wanted to plan my wedding without her and her fabulous, imaginative ideas! I would highly recommend Cottage Garden Weddings to absolutely everyone. Thank you so so much Kerry. You are an absolute star!

Kerry arranged the flowers for our wedding in Sept
Kerry arranged the flowers for our wedding in September and WOW! They were perfect in every way and even better than we could have ever imagined. After meeting with a couple of different florists and then meeting Kerry I knew she was right for our special day. She listened, created ideas based on my vision and did not try to up sell me anything. Her prices are very competitive and Kerry's attention to detail, personalised approach and passion for her work really showed through with her stunning bouquets and centre pieces. I can't thank you enough Kerry!!! AMAZING!!! Xxx

From the moment I met Kerry, I knew she fully unde
Kerry assisted with my wedding flowers on the 8th December 2017. From the moment I met Kerry, I knew she fully understood "the look" I wanted. I felt at ease with Kerry and that I could approach her with any questions. Kerry helped me throughout the wedding process, she was always at the end of an email/ phone call. I was able to go to her workshop and look at the props/ flowers to get a real feel for what it would look like on the day. I also went to the flower market with Kerry, to see the flowers in the flesh and to pick out colours. I love flowers and it was such an important part of my wedding day, I fully trusted Kerry in managing this for me and she done an amazing job. Kerry reported she would assist with dressing the room at the venue, I immediately felt happier knowing Kerry was there. I knew the room would look the way I wanted it too. Leading up to the wedding I chatted to Kerry on the phone (last minute questions!) and Kerry was so kind in reassuring me. The morning of my wedding I was so happy with the flowers, I loved carrying my bouquet around and I loved all the flowers on the table. Everything looked just the way I wanted it to - and that's thanks to Kerry ! Kerry went above and beyond and helped to make my wedding day so special. I would highly recommend Kerry to any future brides.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I always leave all the flowers for the couple after the wedding for them to take away.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Each of my bouquets are completely unique. I’m passionate about sourcing beautiful flowers and turning them into colourful, sculptural and fragrant works of art. Using foliage, berries and herbs as well as blooms, grown in the UK whenever possible.

What about your business are you most proud of?

When planning your budget prioritize what is most important to you, dont be influenced by other peoples thoughts. If you love it go with it!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Starting with a relaxed consultation at my studio, we’ll have a chat about the plans for your big day. We’ll look at colours, textures and adornments together to build up a moodboard of seasonal flowers that sum up your style. It’s important for me to get to know your venue, to look at the spaces available and visualize how each area can be transformed with flowers and foliage. We’ll arrange a venue visit together, and bounce lots of ideas around. Now comes the (even more) fun bit. A moodboard of colours and styles is all well and good, but flowers are such tactile, sensory things that I like my couples to come with me to New Covent Garden Flower Market to really get a sense of how our ideas will come to life. This is one of my favourite places in the world – a riot of colour, perfume and petals. I challenge anyone to leave there not feeling inspired! On the day… When your wedding day arrives I’ll be there at the venue, setting up the flowers and delivering your bouquets. It’s a total privilege to be involved in the happiest day of your life, and once every last tendril and blossom is arranged perfectly, I always make myself available to help out however I can. I’ll make the tea, tie the bowties, calm any nerves and generally be on hand to help your day go smoothly.
