Wild & Wondrous are an eco-florist providing a bespoke wedding design service throughout the North West. Seasonal British flowers and local foliages are their speciality, working with nature to turn wedding dreams into reality. They hire out vintage crockery and vases, and make petal confetti.
The majority of flowers sold in the U.K are imported, mostly air-freighted and refrigerated in articulated lorries and subsequently create an unacceptable carbon footprint. As florists and retailers it is our job to offer the consumer a product that is grown and produced in a more ethical and sustainable way.
By using British grown flowers for your wedding you are not just making an ethical decision but you will also help to prolong a heritage of horticulture in Britain. Supporting UK growers can really help to build up the industry in this country at this time when farmers need it most. However, we understand there are times when specialist flowers are called for and do need to be imported. In these circumstances, we use only ethical sources.
Here at Wild & Wondrous we endeavour to use as much biodegradable packaging as possible, using paper and raffia produced in the UK instead of cellophanes and poly ribbons, to wrap our bouquets with. We sell affordable new and vintage vases and containers that can be reused. The vase replenishment service that we provide is proving very popular with our customer because they get more flowers for their money, they are not paying of all that packaging!
