Flowers at a funeral are a beautiful way to say goodbye to someone & a way to celebrate their life & capturing their personality.
Flowers represent so much more than the sum of their parts. Their scent & colour can evoke memories of a loved one, a special occasion, a forgotten garden from childhood, or a certain place in time.
My work is a little bit different from the usual sympathy flowers in that I incorporate an abundance of natural materials in my work, embrace imperfections & use British & locally grown flowers from independent growers, or from my cutting garden whenever possible. Whilst I can work to a particular colour scheme & concept I cannot promise specific flowers. But I can promise that the tributes I create will be made up of the freshest, seasonal blooms available. They are the fragile, fleeting & scented type & in harmony with nature.
The variety of flowers that are available to us in the UK during the summer months is wonderfully varied & extensive & changes from week to week depending on the weather & supply. Due to our climate flowers are scarce in the winter months so I use alternative options such as living wreaths & planters or dried flower tributes that can be kept for a long time afterward. Flower varieties that are available from November to February include scented narcissi, paperwhites, alstroemeria & a beautiful assortment of foliage. By agreement with you I can top up with imported blooms too. When spring emerges there are daffodils, tulips, hellebores, hyacinths, catkins & blossoms to choose from.
I’m proud to be an Associate member of the Association of Green Funeral Directors & Flowers from The Farm. I don’t use floral foam/Oasis in my work but opt for more natural techniques & materials such as moss & chicken wire. My farewell tributes will degrade naturally & are suitable for anyone having a woodland or natural burial. Coffin sprays can be made in sections so that they can be shared out between family members.
