Willow & Blossom wedding florist is an independent florist owned by Ellice, based in Offley (that’s in the same village as us!). They love creating designs with lots of texture and a very romantic and natural feel.
Whether you’re getting married outside or inside, they love to use flowers to really transform any space. Their goal is to create beautiful unique designs that are perfectly suited to you and your special day.
Ellice fell in love with floristry when she were was much younger and did school work experience at a local florist. After school she then went on to study a floristry course at college.
She loves the creativity and working with nature and all natural products. Weddings were the speciality she chose to pursue as she loves being able to transform a space with her flowers and talent, its always so rewarding for her to be a part of the biggest day of someone’s life. Her favourite moment at weddings is the bouquet delivery in the morning and seeing the entire floral vision come to life.
Willow & Blossom have won the 2019 and 2020 florist winner at the Four Counties wedding awards. Check out her website as well to see many wonderful blog features.
When asked to give some planning advice to our couples, Ellice says to choose suppliers whose work and style you love so you know you can trust them to provide the very best service and something that you know you’ll be super happy with.
Ellice loves working at Offley Place because of our light airy spaces of the ballroom and the orangery. The team are also really friendly and always on hand to help!
- What areas do you cover?
My Studio is based in Offley, Herts, just up the road from Offley Place, so I typically cover the surrounding areas, but I love to explore new locations and venues so I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK & beyond!
2. When should we book you?
This may be earlier than you’d think. I tend to get bookings from around 12 months in advance, so once you’ve confirmed your venue & date its a good time to get in touch with me to discuss your florals.
3. Can you recreate something from Pinterest?
Pinterest is a great tool for inspiration but I prefer not to copy designs. You want your wedding to be unique and personal to you and that includes your floral designs. I will take the ideas and create something special for you.
4. How do we get a personalised proposal from you?
If you head to my website www.willowandblossom.co.uk/wedding-designs you can download a copy of my lookbook which will give you some more information about how I work. I will then be in touch to arrange a consultation with you so we can discuss your ideas in more detail.
5. Do you have a minimum spend for your services?
The minimum spend for wedding flowers with me is £2000. Your personalised proposal will provide you with a bespoke quote. I ask for a 30% initial booking fee to secure your date with me.
“We are so thrilled that we chose Ellice to be our wedding florist! She was absolutely incredible from start to finish, brilliant communication – nothing was too much trouble, despite the ever changing plans due to covid! She was so helpful and provided us with so many ideas and inspiration! The flowers she provided were STUNNING, we could not have been happier with the results and would highly recommend Ellice. Thank you so much!! xx”
“Ellice was absolutely fantastic right from the very start. She got our vision for our flowers immediately and her proposal instantly reassured us that she was going to do a fantastic job and on the day she did just that. The bouquets were more beautiful than I could have imagined and all the table centre pieces, milk churns, ceremony flowers etc were equally stunning. Not only was Ellice a brilliant wedding florist but also a delight to work with and I am thrilled that we chose her to play a part in our big day. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!”
“We found Ellice through our wedding photographer and we’re so glad we did! Our wedding flowers were PERFECT and exactly what I envisioned. From the initial proposal to the wedding day, Ellice was friendly and professional, always available to answer any questions or make any tweaks where necessary – communication was faultless! From the big bouquets and displays to the minute details, our wedding day flowers were just so beautiful. We can’t thank you enough Ellice!”
“Ellice did the flowers for our wedding back in June and she was brilliant from start to finish. We didn’t give her an easy task as wanted multiple bouquets, buttonholes, table arrangements, a moongate and 5 huge spheres full of flowers hanging from the barn ceiling but she made our vision come to life and it looked absolutely incredible. Her natural floral designs are so beautiful and we would recommend her to anyone!”
