Wedding Florist to fun loving + exceptionally romantic sweethearts
Wedding Florist in Leighton Buzzard
No fairy tale wedding flowers to see here – just super epic love stories!
Welcome to the glorious world of wedding dress shopping that’s guaranteed to get your mum welling up, yummy cake tasting, planning the little details and surprises with the only person you trust to keep a secret (your bestie of course!), choosing rings together (does it still give you butterflies when you say fiancé??) and of course falling in love with florals from this wedding florist in Leighton Buzzard!
My approach to wedding flowers is pretty simple.
I believe flowers are magical.
Not ‘I believe in fairies’ fiction but legendary, uber romantic, wordless florals that steal your heart and soul.
It’s the reason why I might not be the florist for you. Bet you never thought you’d hear a wedding supplier say that did you?! But it’s true, choosing suppliers you click with is so important. So let’s get down to the nitty gritty…
My vow to you:
Whether your wedding be big, small, a cosy romantic elopement or a full-on festival tipi party, I promise to create bloody brilliant florals.
That together we will be a very jolly combo that are totally invested in amplifying your epic love story throughout your wedding day.
And lastly, I vow that there’s a very high chance that your spouse will love the florals so much that they'll be surprising you with anniversary flowers from us for the foreseeable!
"Initially, I had not envisaged the flowers as being such a huge part of the day, but now they are one of my favourite memories.
I have no idea about floristry or flowers, all I knew was I wanted a loose, rustic vibe, with deep purple/reds and lots of greenery. Helen met my expectation and more x1000, I could not have even pictured how well they would turn out!"
Ok, psyching myself up here. Right, I’m ready for you to pop the question…
'HELEN; WILL YOU BE MY WEDDING FLORIST?'
Oh my dear budder! YES YES YES!
and lets talk all things floral!
Ok, I get it. You're not quite ready to take that leap of faith so how about I share a little more about how we do things here at Bits and Buds? That way you get to be 100% sure that we're going to be the right floral fit for you.
TOP 4 WEDDING STYLES we’ve loved recently:
1.Trend setting vintage pinks, rust reds and oodles of glitz and old school glamour.
2. Boho, super cool retro, fresh and dried flower combo, festival/industrial vibe.
3. The 'Have your cake and eat it'. we love a collaboration between artisan businesses!
4. We are often asked to add little lockets, pictures of loved ones and sentimental pieces to bridal bouquets.
They are a way to have those dearest to you still with you, almost holding your hand 💖
Which couples do you work well with?
We LOVE working with sweethearts of all types of backgrounds, beliefs and sexes. To us its all about celebrating your super epic love story.
Talking honestly, our couples tend to fall into the ‘I just want to get hitched, and I trust you with all the dets’ or the ‘I’m totally invested in throwing the best day surrounded by my family and close friends’.
Do you have a minimum spend?
We don’t have a minimum spend. Some of our couples only need wedding party flowers and tend to spend £300-£700 where as others want all the floral bells and whistles and tend to spend between £1500-£4500 on their wedding flowers with us.
How far do you travel?
As unhelpful as it might be we don't have a set area that we stick to. We're happy to travel as your wedding florist to your chosen wedding venue in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire or beyond. Please note however that the only area that we don't take on weddings is London.
How far in advance of our wedding date should I be talking to you?
You can secure your date in our diary up to 2 years before. We recommend meeting for an in depth chat 1 year before where we can talk about colours, flowers, styles and designs, this is also when you will get a bespoke quotation as well.
Can you make flowers for animal guests?
I thought you'd never ask! YES! 100%. In the past we've created floral dog collars, Alpaca flower crowns and horse headpieces and garlands. *Cue cute animal photos.....
How do you actively reduce your impact on the environment?
I’m really conscientious of the impact my work has on the world. I’m by no means a saint but I try where I can. I don’t use any floral foam which massively cuts out harmful micro plastics and we wrap with materials like paper and pretty ribbons that can be recycled and re used. I work hard to plan travel time to a minimum and use the most effective routes. I buy British flowers where I can but also believe in trade before aid so also support amazing growers around the world.
Why should we pick you?
I promise to create bloody brilliant florals. That we together will be a very jolly combo that are totally invested in amplifying your epic love story throughout your wedding day. It's going to be super fun and stress free, what's not to love hey?!
About me (Helen)
and my local independent florist shop in Leighton Buzzard.
Well hi there,
I'm Helen, owner of Bits and Buds florist in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. I've been playing this flowery game for over a decade now and love love love designing and making flowers for you. I believe that flowers and plants convey a message and make people feel good, cared for and valued, they're magical!
I really enjoy seeing the quiet excitement and anticipation on my couples faces when we meet for consultations. I love hearing about your plans and unique details from wearing cool starry capes and gold eyeshadow to making homemade limoncello in teeny bottles for favours.
On the day my favourite part is delivering your bridal bouquet and maids bouquets to a room bustling with energy and champagne! Seeing your maids in their dressing gowns and exchanging knowing smiles with MUA's and photographers for the day ahead and being a small part of something magical then sneaking out un noticed like little flower imps driving away into the noon day sun.
Ok I know that sounds a bit like a Disney fairy-tale but honestly there's always such a fantastic camaraderie between me and my flower gals and your other suppliers when we're on site and setting up. The glamour of the day is 100% all about you and celebrating your love story with all the gorgeous details; we're just there to sneak in and do our flower thing, sweep up and leave like we were never there and I wouldn't have it any other way.
