The story began in 1998 when I had my first taste of floristry at my sisters wedding. I come from a very green fingered family plus growing up in the country meant nature and flowers were in my blood. Nothing ever satisfied my creativity as much as floristry did so in 2013, I seized the chance and Wendy House Flowers was born.
"What's with the name?" I hear you cry. Well, Shock alert - There is NO Wendy here.... So whats the deal?
In the beginning I worked from home in a workshop built by my husband and I. (Turns out I'm actually quite good at bricklaying - who knew?). During this time, my husband had a crazy dream where I was arranging flowers in a tiny child's Wendy House... kind of like Alice in Wonderland when she grows, with my arms and legs sticking out all over the place. He thought it was a sign (and hysterical) but I live for signs and fate, so I went with it and this is how the business got its name.
Since then, the business has grown in ways I couldn't have imagined, building strong connections with local and national businesses, supporting local charities and working with some of the best wedding venues and professionals in the country.
We are an independent florist which means all of our bouquets are specially created for you. Every season we refresh our designs to keep bringing something fresh and new - there's no run of the mill Interflora style bouquets here! We always love a challenge so feel free to throw any crazy ideas our way.
Being Eco-Friendly Florist is a super important part of my business. I have streamlined the business to ensure I recycle and use minimal plastics, opting for old school foam-free techniques where possible. Our range of services are so varied. We offer a hire service, budget management for weddings, design advice, flower workshops for all abilities and ages, children's parties and demonstrations.
I am so proud of the reputation I have built and so thankful to the people who have helped me along the way. Being able to do a job I adore and feel so passionate about is such a gift and wouldn't be possible without you.
Thank you 4Ever!
