Wedding Bouquet Advice by Spriggs The Florist Of Petworth

A girl becomes a bride once you have placed a perfectly styled bouquet in her hand, which makes your wedding flowers such an emotional and important part of your day.

Beautiful flowers can make a wedding and if you are a bride-to-be you will already know there are literally thousands of different flowers and floral styles out there. Choosing a professional florist with experience in wedding bouquets will bring so much more to your style and venue décor than you could imagine. They will take away the stress with inspiration and guidance helping you to create the barn wedding of your dreams. If flowers for your wedding are high on your list of priorities then we would suggest you book your florist early so that you do not miss out on working with your preferred florist. You can always fine-tune the details nearer the time.

Many of our brides at Upwaltham Barns have been lucky enough to have Matthew and Samantha Sprigg style the barns to perfection with gorgeous seasonal blooms. Their design team have made some stunning wedding bouquets over the years.

Spriggs The Florist Of Petworth are a family run business established 35 years ago by Matthew and Samantha’s parents. This talented brother and sister team now run two shops in Petworth with a dedicated wedding and parties design studio above the shop in New Street. A fantastic space for your personal consultation to browse through their extensive portfolios, look at their collection of vases, candelabras, lanterns and vintage china that you can hire for table decorations or accessorising the ceremony barn.

Where to start

Samantha is your first point of contact for your wedding bouquets and she can help provide inspiration and guidance. By the time you are talking to Samantha you will usually have chosen your wedding venue and dress which will give her a good idea of your style.

Start pinning

She actively encourages you to use Pinterest  to create your own mood board so that you can share your thoughts with the Spriggs design team allowing them to get a real feel for what you like and to be able to interpret your ideas. Using pictures to illustrate the look you want will help the design process. Having said that, Samantha and Matthew seem to have the enviable ability to really listen, enabling them to translate your vague ideas into something more special than you could have ever imagined.

Beautiful seasonal flowers

Spriggs source their flowers from local suppliers and directly from the Dutch auctions with flowers ordered just for you so they are perfect on the day. For example, sometimes a particular flower will be ordered two weeks in advance so that it is in perfect bloom for your wedding. This is where hiring a professional is worth its weight in gold.

Floral Designer

With a naturalistic style and an eye for detail, Matthew has a passion for gardening which coupled with his genuine artistic talent he creates beautiful seasonal English Garden style designs which compliment Upwaltham Barns perfectly. Hand made wedding bouquets, buttonholes and bridesmaids posies add another layer of something truly special to your wedding celebration.  01798 344133
