This time 6 years ago, I had a full time job with no business plan, no savings and no idea what my future held. After missing out on a few good job promotions, my dream job suddenly offered no comfort and security. In search for the next thing, i turned to What i have done for years as a hobby - floristry. I Googled florist for sale one afternoon, and Amadeus Florist came up. By taking a leap of faith and the help of a wonderful friend, I took over a flower shop 2 weeks before valentine's day.
a flower that comes in all shapes, sizes and colours and are available over three seasons, i bow down 🙇🏽♀️🌸🙌🏽 #dahlia

• VOORJAARSTOPPERS☀️ Ja deze voorjaarsbloemetjes zijn absoluut favoriet. 🌿
Als de kerst de deur uit is kan ik me alweer helemaal verheugen op deze prachtige pareltjes!
Je haalt zo t voorjaar is huis tijdens de nog wat donkere dagen van het jaar! ☀️
Houden jullie ook zo van het voorjaar? 🌷
Attention to detail is so important, right down to the buttonholes! Tiny seasonal blooms with foliage sprigs tied with silk ribbon... creating a similar look yet each one is slightly different... The combinations are endless! @alexanderjcollins@lily_and_sage
#MarchMeetTheMaker catch up continues! Am going to cover 2 titles in this post..
Detail is remembering what clients tell me about their wedding day vision and plans are, stories from their childhood, memories of parents or grandparents no longer with them. Making sure the flower is just the right shade of salmon or the Lily of the Valley can not only be smelled but be seen too. I managed to grab those details in this bridal bouquet for Caroline who married her real life explorer professor last May. The ranunculus were just that perfect shade of salmon orangey tone, Lily of the Valley for scent, white peony a favourite and finally the Icelandic poppy because the professor spends a fair bit of time in Iceland!
Second title is..
Full time or Part time, wellll I have built up my business while working full time too and trust me its been really really hard getting any kind of balance these last 3 years particularly. I do all my own admin, social media posts, consultations, accounts preparation, and finally growing the bulk of my flowers is no easy task. As Northumbrian Flowers has grown and developed it has demanded more and more of me and I find i cannot perform 100% at my day job. So at the age of 48 I will from the 1st April be reducing my role and days to just 2 a week at the day job, giving me more time to devote to my business where my heart really is. I am so looking forward to having more time with my hubby where am not quickly typing up a wedding brief or arranging consultations by email before breakfast or after dinner or as is the usual case at midnight!
In a couple of weeks I'll not be gardening all day then 5pm when I get home spending a few more hours gardening planting seedling, clearing, moving manure etc and I cannot wait for the great things I have planned for my business for so long but just not having enough hours to do them AND NOW I WILL DO.
Exciting but also utterly bricking it for whats to come! #MarchMeetTheMaker#detail#fulltimeparttime#weddingflorist#flowerfarmer#grower#britishflowers#slowflowers#northumberlandweddingflorist#newcastleweddingflorist#scentedflowers#northerflowerhouse#bridalbouquet#weddings
Spring Bouquet of Anemone, Lily of the Valley, Scabiosa, Jasmine, Bleeding Heart, Lilac - who would have thought red and white working together in perfect harmony facilitated I think by the pink pops and zesty foliage 📸 @beunveiledwedds
