The Great British Florist was officially born in 2012 and is part of Wiggly Wigglers. All of the flowers originate from British farms, which is a refreshing statement as at the moment, only 10% of flowers sold in the UK are grown here; the rest are shipped from overseas.
I was very impressed with the flowers that arrived, particularly at how fresh and healthy they still looked. The packaging was secure, and the flowers were supplied with wadding and water, along with flower food. The majority of the flowers are picked, conditioned and shipped within 48 hours. My bouquet arrived on Wednesday, and yet they still look perfect three-four days later.
The bouquet had a wild feel to it and utilised some less traditional blooms, including thistles and heather. This particular bouquet would be perfect for a winter wedding, with the inclusion of red berries, but without feeling cliché.
If the origin of your flowers is important, then look no further than The Great British Florist. The flowers have zero air-miles which means that the carbon emissions produced by the company are quite minimal. You can be safe in the knowledge that your purchase is supporting both the environment, and keeping production based within the UK.
The Great British Florist offers a range of wedding bouquets and accessories which can be seen on the Weddings Section of the website. You can purchase DIY flower boxes if you’re looking to decorate your wedding venue yourself, and hire various vases and display items. There are also floral headpieces, confetti, buttonholes and corsages available.
There was clearly a lot of thought put into the composition of the bouquet, and it was presented wrapped in burlap with pearl detail. From a practical perspective, the bouquet felt secure and sturdy, and perfectly capable of lasting through a day of being picked up, put down, dropped and even thrown!
Next day delivery within the UK is free and this particular bouquet retails for £40.00.
