Bloom & Flourish


Bloom and Flourish creates wild and wondrous flowers.

I specialise in using local and British flowers and foliage as much as possible ;continually inspired by nature and influenced by the changing seasons.

Packaging is in simple recyclable paper and card.

These are alternative designs with a conscience, reducing waste and the impact on the environment

Every design is unique and beautiful, created with you for every life event.

Flowers are sourced from local growers wherever possible 

I am fascinated with colour and texture , influenced by textiles ,contemporary art and craft  and wabi sabi . I long to see people’s homes filled with flowers as an everyday luxury.

‘People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us……..’

My career path took me in a very different direction and I have recently trained as a florist, having wanted to be one for my whole life.

We booked Mary for our wedding and we were not disappointed! She was amazing from start to finish!  I love flowers and they were one of the main features of my wedding. Mary created so many stunning floral arrangements. Mary created our vision exactly how we wanted it! The bouquets were absolutely out of this world, I didn’t want to put my bouquet down all day! We had so many compliments on our flowers and we couldn’t have been happier. We highly recommend Mary for her creative ideas, hard work, organisation, and stunning floral designs! She is so passionate about her business and flowers and anything creative you will not be disappointed! She is also a very lovely lady and is a joy to work with.

Mary is a great gift to flowers, and blossoms everywhere are nodding their heads in happy agreement! Can’t wait to see more of her wonderful arrangements.

I ordered a bouquet for my mother in law that Mary delivered, and they were stunning! She has not stopped telling me how beautiful & fragrant they were!! They were so natural and wild but professional too and the wrapping and presentation were just exquisite and they actually made her cry! Such a lovely helpful lady! Can’t wait to order in the future


Well what can I say other than this lady is amazingly talented. Mary from Bloom and Flourish kindly did the flowers for my wedding which was 4 days ago. It was a very small and understated wedding but the flowers were anything but understated, a few words that spring to mind when trying to describe them are, beautiful, original, unique, stunning and perfect !
I got exactly what I wanted and more. Mary you are a truly talented lady with a real eye for the natural beauty of flowers. Thank you so much for making my day even more beautiful with your stunning creations. I would be happy to highly recommend you to anyone I know. This lady will not disappoint!!!
