Sharing the love... Supplier Spotlight featuring The Greenhouse Florist

Today, I'm sharing the love for the fabulous Amy at The Greenhouse Florist. I always find it fascinating when the answers to our blog questions are returned... and Amy's answers were no different... so sit back and enjoy a little insight into the woman behind the bouquet!

So Amy, how did you end up in the wedding industry?
I love flowers, I love people and I love a bit of romance – so for me it’s the perfect choice.

Tell us something about you that most people wouldn’t know.
I was 11 and a half pounds when born – my poor mother!

Who, or what, inspires you?
Cesar Manrique. Because of his amazing sense of style, his incredible achievement’s and because he was a creative genius.
What is your greatest achievement?
Opening my first flower shop! It was so exciting when the customers started coming through the door gushing about it. I thought to myself – “I’ve done this! I’ve created this from nothing! Whoop! Whoop!” .

Ideal 5 dinner guests, past or present?
Bill Bailey (because he’s hilarious), George Harrison (because he was  a legend),  Nigella Lawson (who can bring dessert as well as her company),  Elton John  (so I could woo him into letting me be his personal  florist  and would be made for life! ) and my husband (because I wouldn’t want him to miss out on a good night!)

What’s your favourite quote?
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions – Dalai Lama.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Elle Decoration Magazine.  I love interior design. Flowers and plants play a massive part in making our surroundings beautiful.  

What’s your favourite film?
Jean du Florette.  Closely followed by the follow up Manon du Source. If you haven’t see them you must seek them out!  They’re the kind of films that stay with you for years to come.

What can we expect to see from you in the coming months?
We have some lovely weddings coming up, encompassing some of the latest trends.

Whimsical brights have been very popular with our lovely Greenhouse brides! This Seasons floral trends have moved away from the muted vintage colours after the market has become saturated with them.  We’re seeing lots of Corals, Peaches, Plums, Yellows and even Oranges emerging into the wedding spotlight. It’s young, fresh and modern. I love a bit of colour!

We love weddings Wedding Heart

We love everything about them
We love the romance, the dresses, 
the cake and having a cry at the end.
But the bit we love the most, 
even more than the cake (no really!)
are the flowers...
We love the colour and smell,
the big blooms & the small,
the simple and the out there
Whatever you want...
...and if you don't know we can help with that too!

Give us a call and pop round for a cup of tea
& have a look through our nice books...
