We pride ourselves on getting to know our customers to ensure each order is specifically what the customer wants and enhances the theme of their event.
The owner Mandy Barker has over 20 years experience as a florist. Mandy regularly provides designs for wedding venues, churches and military functions. Wedding Blossoms work closely with York Minster, Allerton Castle, York Hospitium and Villa Farm Barn and are recommended florists for these venues. We also love to work at many of the other beautiful venues in and around York.
Contact us here to discuss your requirements. We can meet at our base in York or your chosen venue. Many of our customers do not live locally and in those circumstances we can face time/skype.
We prefer to meet our customers either at their home, venue or our base to discuss ideas and find out what is important you. It is helpful to know how you describe the style of your wedding, e.g. vintage, modern, elegant, classic, minimalist. Also what are your colour choices and which colours are prominent at the venue?
Some Brides know exactly the flowers and styles they want. Bring along the pictures which inspired you when we meet .
Others are looking for ideas, again bring pictures with you and we can look at designs, colours and flowers then together design a bouquet that is personal to you.
Often it takes 2 meetings to finalise your ideas. The first appointment gives us the opportunity to discuss ideas which can be clarified nearer the date of the wedding.
Costs vary depending on flowers, designs and season. Budget is always important; we recognise this and will work with you to think creatively about how you use the flowers at your venue to their best effect. After meeting a customer a detailed summary of your order and the costs are provided.
A deposit of £100 secures your order. We only take 1 wedding per weekend to ensure each wedding receives personal attention.
Full payment is required 1 month before the wedding.
Dinner nights, balls, corporate hospitality need flowers to add colour and style to the event.
The possibilities are endless, contact us to discuss your ideas and see them develop. Size, vases and variety of flowers have an important effect how floral arrangements impact on your event.
Wedding Blossoms florists have experience in creating large flower arrangements to enhance either the character of a room or hide an unsightly feature.
We also do table decorations to suit all styles, spaces and budgets.
“You can do it”

Wedding Blossoms offer workshops to include flowers, sundries and tuition.
You may want to use foliage and flowers from your garden to keep costs down.
