Blush

This week Oh So Perfect – Weddings and Events caught up with Verity Sidgwick of Cardiff based florist, Blush

At Blush ….we love flowers!

     Specialising in unique & beautiful wedding flowers with an eye for original detail – Blush offer a boutique service at an affordable rate.

We work with each individual to help them tell their story, and create something unique and beautiful to make their day memorable. We have created dreamy vintage themes, welsh grown flowers with a flowered bicycle basket and a bridal bouquet with a hedgerow theme and berries….white and classic chandeliers with dozens of creamy roses & trailing amaranthus…

We had great fun with an Alice in Wonderland wedding – creating Mad Hatter tea parties on each table, with arrangements of peonies and roses in birdcages, teapots and teacups….we love to create something different and beautiful.

And we keep it green -where possible, we use locally grown flowers and foliage.

We love flowers & we want to share that with you!

We run fun flower-workshops where you can come to us or we can come to you and bring everything you need to create gorgeous flower arrangements – perfect for an afternoon tea or fun night in with the girls over a glass of fizz.

Inspired – Beautiful – Special

 We also run a special masterclass for the DIY bride where we can teach enthusiastic brides & friends all they need to know about how to design & create fabulous centrepeices, beautiful buttonholes & floral favours & place setttings to add the personal touch to your day. We will bring all the tools , flowers & all you need – we can even bring vintage china, tea and homemade cupcakes to create the perfect setting for your flower workshop!

Our festive flowers will help get you in the mood for the season & you will leave with a bespoke door wreath or party centrepeice or garland to decorate your home.

 

We don’t repeat designs & ensure that each wedding has bespoke flowers which stand out from the crowd. We book one wedding per date to ensure we can pay attention to every detail & get it perfect.

We love what we do, we are excited by each new wedding & working with each bride to ensure wedding flowers reflect individual taste and personality.

We work with integrity & the bride & groom’s best interests in mind being imaginative, flexible & organized.

 We source the highest quality blooms within budget & work with local growers to source local flowers & foliage where possible.

I just love flowers, meeting people & creating beautiful arrangements. It is a wonderful industry to work in, its such a privilege to create flowers which  are special and memorable for people on their wedding day.

 I was inspired to start up Blush bespoke wedding flowers after seeing the demand for different and unique flowers for weddings – it is a lot of work creating new designs. We are constantly getting inspirations, not just from our bride’s stories, but from everywhere – changing seasons, fashion designers, art & flower trends.

I have always loved fresh flowers and I have had a passion for floristry for as long as I can remember.

My grandmother  was an amazing florist and gardener. Her house was always filled with beautiful arrangements and I learnt so much from her about creating displays, as well as growing & caring for plants and flowers.

I have 8 years experience specialising in  designing wedding flowers & I am always learning & updating my skills – you have to, in order to keep things fresh. My background in fine art has certainly helps me with design, balance & colour.

Every bride is different & their flowers are always unforgettable of course! I will never forget Angela & Gary’s Alice in Wonderland extravaganza and the sumptuousness of hundreds of roses and peonies.

 I really loved creating the floral bicycle basket for Stephen and Cery’s wedding last year. We sourced Welsh-grown flowers, which I picked myself from a local farm the day before the wedding – which was just a joy. A last-minute addition of gorgeous sloe berries picked from the farm’s hedgerows made an inspired addition to her bouquet.

Creating bridal bouquets will never lose its particular magic for me – it is a moment I savour.

I tend to work on everything else and save the bouquet for a quiet moment to really treasure – I love it as a moment of stillness, where you know you are creating something that is really special.

We offer all prospective brides free consultations & can come to you or meet over tea or coffee.
