Many of the wedding flowers used by The Yorkshire Dales Flower Company are picked from our garden, where each season brings new flowers. Daffodils, Tulips, Bluebells and Hellebores are some of the flowers found in spring, whilst in summer Sweet Peas, Peonies, Roses and Dahlias are just a few of the delights the garden has to offer. This means our bespoke wedding flowers are truly special and our designs natural in style, whilst paying attention to detail. We will make sure we understand the style and theme of your day, whilst offering expert and friendly advice. Initially you would have a consultation at The Yorkshire Dales Flower Company, or a mutually convenient place, to discuss your wedding flowers and we would then prepare a quotation tailored to your requirements, ensuring perfect flowers for your wedding day. Our bespoke wedding service is available throughout North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, Cumbria and East Lancashire. Please contact us if you are interested and your venue is outside the counties mentioned, as we may be able to accommodate you.
Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Susan Dobson
Hello, my name is Susan Dobson and I am based at Bradley near Skipton in North Yorkshire. In 2014 I combined my passions for gardening and floristry to start The Yorkshire Dales Flower Company and provide bespoke wedding flowers made from home grown seasonal cut flower and foliages, with flowers from further afield when required. If you would like to discuss your upcoming wedding then I would love to hear from you to talk through wedding flower ideas. x

What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is memorable and very special.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Beautiful, natural, rustic, country, bespoke wedding designs.
What about your business are you most proud of?
We not only create bespoke wedding floral designs, but also grow many of the flowers ourselves.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I am often asked to include a particular flower in a bouquet as a reminder of a loved one, or miniature photographs tied to bridal bouquet bindings with ribbon.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I will often have an enquiry by email, via social media or by the Website Contact Form and will send my pricelist to the couple and offer to meet them to discuss their wedding flower ideas further. Following our meeting a quotation is prepared and if the couple want to go ahead, a £100 booking deposit is paid and contract signed and we usually meet once again and exchange emails to finalise the wedding flower order.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I have used peacock feathers in a bouquet this year. They worked really well and the bride was delighted.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
In floriography or, the language of flowers, Roses symbolise beauty and love. It is a flower I adore using in bridal work.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
The Rose, because historically it has always symbolised beauty and love.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Brides used to throw their bouquets to the waiting guests, but nowadays bouquets are often placed on the cake table or in vases at the venue, along with bridesmaid bouquets, as extra table arrangements. After the wedding I think it is a lovely idea to press some of the flowers in the bridal bouquet and make a flower card with them as a keepsake. After the wedding some of the venue flowers could be given away as wedding favours to guests.
