Wedding Flowers Jam Jars and Mason Jars

Introducing our new Mason and Jam Jar Service…

Creating Jam Jars is great fun but sometimes with everything else going on having these little treasures pre-made by us ready to collect by Dad makes the day much more relaxing.

Dream Wedding Flowers

Wedding Flowers in particular can make a huge difference to the background of the Wedding… The cost can come as somewhat of a shock, leaving brides disappointed as budgets have already been eaten up on the other essentials..

Our Story…

I was asked the other day how we started with British Flowers?

I don’t think we have ever really covered our story….

The only reason we live where we do is that the transport links for London and other parts of the county were the best we could find with the garden we wanted to have…

Now we have given up the treadmill of the corporate world it’s all a bit irrelevant other than the fact Swan Cottage is our home, our sanctuary and absolutely priceless in the amount of treasured plants I have secured in it’s grounds!

As a flower farm, its seriously tiny! But we have big dreams!

Kelly and Tommy

A Midsummers Night Dream. Surrounded by trees and nature, Kelly and Tommy made their vows in the woods…Kelly made all her own floral arrangements from the Bridal Bouquet, Buttonholes, Bridesmaids Bouquets and Flower Girl Posy’s, they kept things simple with elegant silk flower crowns….With Jam Jars waiting filled with clean water, once the Ceremony was over Kelly used the bouquets to add to the table arrangements….The bouquets and table arrangements blend seamlessly together…
