" we give different flowers at different times in our lives, but all for the same purpose, to say what cannot be said and to say it with beauty and grace"
Bloom&Green was born around the kitchen
table over two years ago. Since then, working from our very large sheds both in Chatburn and Barrow, we have created wonderful Wedding & Event flowers at venues around the Ribble Valley and beyond! We have loved every single one.
We believe that every Wedding and Event is unique and that's genuinely how we see them. We will put ALL our efforts into helping to make yours very special indeed!
Through consultation at our homes or through a 'ZOOM' meeting at a time convenient for you and your family, we LISTEN! We will give you as much or as little guidance as you need or want and we will encourage you to be involved in choosing both colours, style and the general 'mood' of your wedding, so please bring fabrics, pages torn from magazines, Pinterest boards, favourite colours and anything else you can think of! We will let you know exactly what it will cost to make sure it's within your budget. Our quotes are very detailed, cost itemised and full of pictures of everything we have discussed.
There will be cake .. coffee, tea or fizz.. you decide!!
Our style is naturalistic, flowers arranged as they grow, wild and garden like with lots of natural movement - never forced. We are both gardeners and have been for many years. The idea of connecting gardens and floristry is one we embrace. Although formally trained we both LOVE to break the 'rules'. There is nothing we enjoy more than experimenting with different structures and our selection of arches and stands grows every year..Floral arches have become a Bloom&Green signature!
We endeavour to use British seasonal flowers wherever possible and we both have ever expanding cutting gardens from which we supplement our designs. We are always thrilled at the difference our home grown beauties make. They always add the WOW factor.. the scent, different varieties & colours ...we believe it's what sets us apart from other florists.
We will advise clients during consultation on seasonal blooms - flowers are more beautiful when in season, they look better, smell better and are cheaper... what's not to love!
'Jo and Liz.. I don't even know where to begin! You quite literally turned my flowery dreams into reality, and then some!I never thought our flowers could look so spectacular, they were so so beautiful. My bouquet was just perfect. The care, attention to detail and simply stunning arrangements you put together were out of this world. And in the absence of sunshine (and the arrival of all that rain!) you bought the outside indoors. We loved it so, so much. I'm sitting in my living room right now surrounded by flowers and I want them to stay for ever. We can't thank you enough, we're so very grateful we found you.'

LET YOUR FLOWERS TELL A STORY
Allow your flowers to tell your story. Through the ages flowers have developed significant and different meanings. Floriography - "the language of flowers" - Communicate your emotions and feelings through the flowers you choose..
Include a pale pink peony to promise devotion, a pale pink rose to symbolise perfect happiness, thornless roses to admit love at first sight! The possibilities are endless, think of them as modern day emojis!
You'll get your very own bridal bouquet Floriography on your wedding day.. it has been known to create tears .. good ones!! It's something to keep and treasure, a great reminder of the stunning flowers you carried on your big day.. (and note to future husband.. a wonderful reminder of your favourite flowers for many anniversaries to come!!)
'Jo & Liz turned our extremely vague ideas for the flowers for our wedding at Holmes Mill into something very beautiful and cool and better than we could have imagined. They were so relaxed and easy to work with and we had complete trust in them! Thanks so much for creating such an amazing backdrop to our wedding with the greenery hoops and giving me a bouquet I didn't want to let go of!'
