In The Spotlight with Twisted Willow Florist
From your bridal bouquet to buttonholes, centrepieces to general venue décor, your flowers can have a huge impact on your wedding day! With that in mind, we’re talking to Rebecca of Twisted Willow Florist all about big day blooms. A member of our Cream of the Crop Wedding Directory, Rebecca has a huge passion for all things posy-related, creating some of the most stunning floral arrangements you’ll ever see! We’ve put Rebecca in the spotlight with our recent Q&A, so it’s time to find out a little more about Twisted Willow Florist…
Tell us about Twisted Willow Florist and where it all began?
I’d worked for a number of very talented florists over the years and gained so much valuable experience from it, but I’d always had the yearning to do things the Twisted Willow way. I never thought it would happen. One November while out walking my dog Bailey, I fell and broke my ankle. With hours to kill I started plotting a plan! After weeks of quite literally getting back on my feet I was on the case of getting Twisted Willow up and off the ground. This April we will celebrate our 7th Birthday! I guess everything really does happen for a reason!
What is your style?
I love anything loose, rambling and a little bit wild! I’m a huge lover of colours and textures and I’ll always add a little bit of willow given the opportunity!
How do you use floral decorations to add the wow factor?
For me, anything bold and over sized is amazing! I always feel hight creates a real impact and there are so many options available in terms of using your budget wisely. I always try to encourage my couples to think outside the box!
What services do you offer as a wedding florist?
I love meeting new couples and working together on ideas, which is why we offer an initial consultation in our beautiful new shop, an itemised quote to ensure you know exactly what you are getting for your budget, on hand advice should you need it over the months leading up to your wedding & a guarantee our heart and soul will be put in to your wedding blooms!
What do you feel makes your service and flowers stand out from the crowd?
We are so passionate about what we do, often getting just as excited as our couples! We don’t like playing by the rules and embrace and welcome anything slightly off the wall! Hopefully this comes out through our flowers!
What do you love most about being involved in the wonderful world of weddings?
Without a doubt making each and every wedding different from the next.
What floral trends can we expect to see for 2018 / 2019 weddings?
For our 2018 couples it’s very much about the ox blood tones with mink and soft blush tones. We’re also seeing a huge amount of Boho Tropics coming though for 2019…we can’t wait!!
Which flowers are the most popular for weddings?
The one I always get asked about is the Queen of blooms herself, the Peony! It’s such a shame she’s not able to grace us with her presence all year round! I feel roses are often undervalued as being the “norm” but there are so, so many amazing and unusual colours, scents and variations out there to suit all styles and colours of weddings.
What is the best way to get in touch with you?
Ring me! We are busier than ever since moving to Hulland Ward so if you would like to book a consultation to chat all thing wedding blooms I’d advise ringing before emailing. I know it’s sometimes easier to mail, but as we send an available appointment to one couple, it’s snapped up by the next!
