Of course, during the global pandemic all businesses have had to adapt once more, and we were inundated with requests for doorstep deliveries to brighten a loved one's day! So we began a delivery service on a pre-order basis, and of course we do always cater for the peak seasons too! During the big wedding season of 2021, the day to day deliveries will be on a limited capacity, but we will still try our best with enough notice, as we are so thankful for all of the continued support. Funeral flowers are also of high importance to us, and we will always endeavor to assist in creating the perfect pieces.
We pride ourselves on using only the freshest flowers, to create eye-catching and beautiful florals for Weddings all around the country, as we travel far and wide. Our aim is for every client to enjoy their flower experience. We hope that our love of flowers, and our passion for quality, comes across in our consultations, and then blooms within our customers too.
We hope to work with you soon,
The Countryside Florist opened it's doors in 2011, just a short few weeks after I qualified as a florist, aged just 18. We are a team of two, I'm the owner and florist, Rebecca, and by my side I have my dedicated Mam Linda, who works incredibly hard behind the scenes conditioning flowers and a whole host of other tasks, to enable me to create beautiful floral pieces.
I'm very proud to own a lovely premises on Skelton High Street, which is perfectly equipped for ensuring the flowers are stored in the best environment. We have a state of the art air-conditioning system which means the flowers (and us!) are kept at the optimum cool temperature throughout the preparation and creation process. We also have plenty of room to work on magnificent pieces, and of course make plenty of mess along the way too!
Over the years the services we offer have changed and adapted. We began as a retail shop offering every aspect of floristry and even giftware. In more recent years we transitioned into a Wedding and Events florist, as the demand for this had grown beyond all expectation and so my time needed to be focused on this. Even after creating over 550 weddings, the buzz from handing a bridal bouquet over to our beautiful brides is always incredibly satisfying! My favourite part of the wedding flower experience, is meeting so many lovely couples, and learning about them, and their dreams for their big day.
