Best Wedding Florists in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Wales
I often get asked for supplier recommendations, so I’m going to tell you about who I think are some of best wedding florists in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Wales.
Issy and Bella Floral design is a bespoke florist based in rural Herefordshire. Jo and Joyce are a mother and daughter team with such flair for the business. They have oodles of floristry experience and Jo trained at the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers and more recently with Jay Archer.
Their flowery floristry style reflects the English countryside and the flowers of the quaint cottage gardens that Herefordshire has in abundance.
They use many of the nation’s favourite flowers such as hydrangeas, roses, peonies, cherry blossom, sweet peas, dahlias and ranunculus to name a few, much of which is grown in mum’s and auntie’s cutting garden.
I first met Jo and her Mum at a styled shoot I organised at Henley hall Ludlow. Issy and Bella’s work is exceptional and she works with such flair and she is such a wonderful fun person to work with.
You can follow Jo on Instagram and Facebook.
I first met Tammy of Wild Bunch at Walcot Hall. Her work is amazing and her gardens showcase an abundance of colour and beauty.
Wildly beautiful, they create flowers to delight. Wild Bunch is a state of mind – free, relaxed and in harmony with nature. Their floral arrangements are wild and romantic, designed with a focus on colour, texture and movement.
Just as each client and event is unique, so is each Wild Bunch arrangement, and Tammy can often be found foraging in fields and hedgerows for the perfect piece of wild foliage!
As well as creating bespoke floral arrangements for weddings, gallery openings, lunch parties or evening events, Tammy also loves passing on the knowledge and lore of flowers in her seasonal classes.
Take a look at her stunning Instagram feed.
Anne Whysall Florists are based in Pontesbury, near Shrewsbury. Anne has extensive experience and skills in all aspects of wedding and event floristry.
Having spent 15 years working and teaching in the industry, she has developed a broad spectrum of experiences and skills. Anne has trained under world-renowned florists and has lead teams of florists to multiple gold medals at National RHS flower shows.

Two other florists I have enjoyed following on Instagram are:
The Flower Garden Barney and Victoria Martin grow glorious garden flowers, and each year they add new varieties. They like flowers with wonderful scents: syrupy sweet peas, spicy pinks, warm-smelling sweet Williams, fresh spring like narcissi, sugary peonies and richly delicious roses perfume the air from late spring to early autumn. They love to provide relaxed, informal arrangements for weddings and parties.

Lunabloom is Floral Design using sustainable methods and seasonal ingredients. Emma surname? Says: “I like to think I attract the wild at heart, who see perfection in the imperfect, and appreciate the beauty of a little orchestrated chaos.”

And finally, a big shout out to a wonderful new business on my doorstep near Bishops Castle in south Shropshire Little and Wild flowers based in Norbury. Lexi manages Little & Wild Flowers. The accidental company which was born from a personal challenge. Her blooms are truly beautiful.

Also I’d like to mention Janice Bateson of Cottage Garden Flowers in Lydbury North which I photographed at Katie and Chris’s country wedding. All her flowers are home grown, and you won’t be disappointed.
