Your North West Wedding- Page number 43 - June/July 2021 (Issue 68)

Get to know local florists PICK OF S ince the pandemic started, we’ve seen a change in styles, trends and colour schemes, so to help you find the perfect on-trend florist, we asked some of the best North West-based suppliers more about their companies. bunc www.dai MEET CHELSEA TAYLORDAVIES FROM SEED & WILD 07780 969 695 | Q – Tell us about your company. Seed & Wild is a bespoke wedding florist based in the little village of Warton on Lancashire’s Fylde Coast. We’re relatively new to the industry, having planned to launch right at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. It slowed us down for sure but definitely didn’t stop us from doing what we love! Our floral designs are delicate and graceful, focusing on the finest details and interesting textures. Purposeful details like a scent heavily influence our arrangements, helping us to create meaningful memories for years to come. Just catching the smell of sweet peas or garden roses in the air always brings back feelings of nostalgia for me, and I hope to do the same for you. Q – What services do you offer? We offer a small number of elopement and wedding packages and fully bespoke designs. Your nuptials will be our sole priority and only booking on that particular day. All of our products are foam and single-use plastic-free, and we try to be as environmentally conscious as possible by repurposing our materials, avoiding plastic waste and sourcing our flowers locally as much as we can! Q – How long before the wedding should couples get in touch? Our diary is open right up to summer 2023. It’s really important to book your suppliers as soon as you have booked your venue, especially if you’re getting married during peak wedding season. With so many nuptials sadly being postponed last year, suppliers are booking up quickly, so I would say don’t leave it too late! Q – What’s your favourite part of the job? My favourite part of the job is, of course, meeting and getting to know my lovely couples, especially if they say those five magic words “I’d like all British flowers”, which is music to my ears! I’m passionate about supporting our local growers and love to grow some of my own blooms. I also love choosing and create your arrangements and sometimes get a little lost in it, and nobody will hear or see me for hours. Q – Do you have any top tips for couples looking for their wedding flowers? Look at their style. Does it work well with your vision for your day? Flowers are art, after all, and every florist is different! If you’re offered a free consultation, take it! This is by far the best way to get to know if your supplier is the right fit for you as a couple. Lastly, and more importantly, enjoy the process! www.dais www.dais FLOWERS 43
