The trend of vintage-style weddings is suiting one district designer florist down to the ground.
Flora Button was set up by Ann Collick in 2011 and is based in High Street, Great Glen.
Speaking about the vintage trend for weddings, she explained: “We are finding the popularity of that lovely vintage, rustic, and country look seems to be a continuing trend.
“The beauty of this look is that it can be very much tailored to the type of wedding, the venue, and of course the season.
“It is a very decorative theme, often quirky and with a festival style, bringing an informality and originality which seems very popular, probably due to its relaxed approach.
“This is especially true for summer weddings.”
Her company specialises in locally-sourced, seasonal plants and flowers with a slightly wild, natural, garden feel, from filled jam-jars to rustic heart arrangements.
Ann, who trained as a designer and started her artistic life in textile design, said: “We specialise in creating designs with an added whimsical twist, from weddings, funerals and special events, to gift bouquets and corporate contracts.
“The service we provide goes above and beyond that provided by a high street florist. Every occasion is bespoke and the materials we use are more unusual – wild apples from hedgerows, pussy willow and garden-style greenery, including herbs and old-fashioned scented flowers are just some examples of our natural approach.
“Many clients have been delighted with ‘that just picked from the garden’ look.
“We love to create unique designs that bring out the natural qualities of the flowers and foliage.”
