We could complain that rose bushes have thorns, but we feel like celebrating because thorn bushes have roses!

There’s no denying the last few months have been harder than we could possibly have imagined but today we can’t help but burst with joy and excitement to be back!

….And we’ve finally reopened! It was a truly wonderful feeling to open our doors once again and welcome back our wonderful brides-to-be. What made our reopening day extra special was a visit from Clare of Rich Pickings who brought us the most beautiful bouquet!

We absolutely love the approach Clare and Kate take to floristry – from their gardens, just a few miles up the road from our boutique, they grow and select the most beautiful, seasonal flowers and greenery to make their arrangements. With just a quick read of the testimonials on their website at we can tell that it isn’t just us that are completely in awe of this pair’s knowledge, skill and talent. They know exactly how to transform a venue or compliment a gown with their intricate understanding of colour, structure and scent.

We love their passion for nature and commitment to sustainability. It’s not just an add-on gesture; for the team at Rich Pickings, looking after the environment is a fundamental part of their operation. They work with carefully nurtured freshly picked plants and collaborate with local artisans to create their own props, avoiding the use of floral foam.

Not only do they create fabulous displays but they also offer workshops; what a lovely idea for a hen party!
