Flowers are one of the most important elements of Steph’s day, so she needed a florist who shared her vision.
Flowers are one of my favourite things in life. If I need cheering up, I’ll go and grab a bunch of blooms from a supermarket or florist for my home.
Unwrapping them, separating them all out, chopping off the ends of the stalks, filling up my beautiful vases – the whole ritual that goes along with having flowers around is something I really enjoy.
I knew that flowers would be super important to me even before I booked my wedding venue.
They’re going to make up pretty much all of my décor, so I needed to book a florist who would be open to listening to my (pretty vague!) ideas and turn them into reality.
I’d known Amanda from The Floral Design Boutique for a while before I decided to book her as my wedding florist.
She’s worked on a few different projects within the magazine, and I always loved her work.
I’m more into an unstructured look when it comes to flowers, but not quite at the end of the wildflower spectrum, so her style really resonated with me.
After I’d booked, Amanda and I met up in a little café and chatted about my vision, which was sketchy at the time.
Infact, my ideas are changing and evolving all the time. Thank God for Instagram and Pinterest!

I’ve decided to spend a little more than is maybe average on my flowers because they really are going to be the only décor we have on the day.
I’d love to have flowers at the outdoor lochside ceremony spot, and I can’t wait to see what my bouquet is going to look like.
I completely trust Amanda to create something truly spectacular for my wedding flowers, and I am really looking forward to working with her on my vision.
