They also create flowers on behalf of 60-100 discerning brides every year. 2017 has been the busiest year yet, with a huge influx of high profile weddings and outdoor events throughout the summer season. Working at The RHS, Chelsea Flower Show, Aegon Championships, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, they put the floral designs on the central stage, going above and beyond to deliver stand-out spectacles. (Lavender Green Flowers place a significant amount of emphasis on the whole picture, considering and often advising on every other element of an event that becomes important, such as lighting, furniture and even food.) From the initial brief and design process through to the creation and subsequent delivery, clients know that they can rely on Lavender Green Flowers’ highly inventive, hard-working and experienced team. As is often the case, nothing is ever out-sourced meaning installations are slick and efficient. The designers, florists and installers are all part of the Lavender Green Flowers’ family, and they therefore share the same passion and enthusiasm for the perfect execution of every job. Barnes says, “I was not interested in learning how to be a florist. I was interested in learning how to sell amazing flowers and how to create breath-taking flower displays. I have always wanted to be the very best I can possibly be at whatever I do, and so failure was not an option. It is incredible to make money out of a low margin product. You need the tenacity of a limpet, self-belief, a great team of kindred spirits and to enjoy the experience… plus an awful lot of luck!”...

A Florist's Romantic Wedding at Ryland InnTuesday, August 28, 2018
December 2013 and hit it off nearly nine years later. After dating for another four years, John suggested they take a trip to California to celebrate Valentine's Day. (The bride is a florist at Twisted Willow Flowers and it was the first holiday she was taking off from her shop, so it was an occasion to celebrate on its own.) But John had other plans in mind when we proposed at the La Jolla cove in San Diego on February 11, 2017.Just over a year later, on March 23, 2018, the couple invited 142 to celebrate with them at Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey. "We have worked events there and the staff, service, and food are just incredible," says the florist bride. "We chose the coach house for its eclectic rustic feel!" And, of course, the flowers were important to Amanda and John. "Flowers were super important in the overall vision for the day," she explains. "We really wanted to make it feel like spring with blooms, even though the temperature outside didn’t agree. There was a massive snowstorm two days before the wedding!" But, despite the weather, the bride and groom filled the space with so many bright blooms and warmly-lit candles that it nearly felt like a spring day inside the inn's rustic cottage. So if you're a fan of b... https://www.brides.com/story/a-florists-romantic-wedding-at-ryland-inn
