Seasonal English Wedding Flowers
“We just wanted to say the most enormous thank you for doing our wedding flowers! They were stunning! And the vines in the room and our chairs were beyond what I had imagined!” Louise & Ben, River Cottage HQ, August 2017 (photos of Louise & Ben’s wedding courtesy of https://www.samgibsonweddings.co.uk)
Unique English hedgerow and garden flowers for your wedding.
With years of experience working for London florist Scarlet & Violet, Kate Reeves has teamed up with Zanna Hoskins of Champernhayes Flowers to create a dynamic duo. With Zanna’s flowers, Kate’s experience and the combined creative talent of both, whether you’re after something traditional, or couture, something romantic and vintage, or a wild and colourful country garden look, we feel sure we can make your wedding flowers really gorgeous.
We also work with local photographer Pete Millson of West Dorset Wedding Photographer whose lovely informal style of photography and relaxed, easy-to-work-with approach makes for wonderful wedding photos. For more on his excellent portrait photography see Cargo Collective.

Ours is primarily a summery, English, wild, gardeny, foraged, hedgerow look. The kinds of flowers we use are blossom, sweet peas, roses, poppies, daisies, clary sage, stocks, forget-me-not, dill, delphinium, gelder rose, euphorbia, senecio, love-in-a-mist, hydrangea, astrantia, rosemary & other herbs, cow parsley, alchemilla, and many lush seasonal foliages.

Delivery and collection
Our fee depends on the time it takes to install the flowers and clear them up afterwards, and the distance of the venue. Allow £20 – £600.
Terms & Conditions: in order to secure the date we charge a non-refundable booking fee of 10% or £50, whichever is greater. Once the booking fee has been paid, the order can be increased subject to availability but not reduced by more than £50 and our maximum liability for ‘non-performance’ is the full amount paid. Full payment is required 3 weeks before the date of the wedding.
We are into foraging and green, eco choices – although we won’t shove our feelings or opinions at anyone – but if that’s your cup of tea then we’d be thrilled to help.
“From the moment we met Zanna, we knew that she just ‘got’ what we wanted for our wedding flowers. She was so helpful and had plenty of suggestions and ideas to help create what were genuinely the most beautiful wedding flowers I’d ever seen. We wanted something that looked natural and whimsical and I think we ended up with the most perfect version of that imaginable. To top it all off, Zanna was just the loveliest, kindest person going and was an utter joy to work with.” Kat & Joe, July 2016 (Photos of Kat & Joe’s wedding courtesy of Nova Wedding Photography)
‘Zanna and Katie’s flowers at our wedding were utterly beautiful! Our wedding venue had to accommodate 220 guests and was a gallery and performance space not specifically designed for weddings. So we really needed some floral magic to transform it into the wedding hall we envisaged. Champernhayes Flowers achieved that with their amazing flair, imagination and expertise but even more with their sensitivity to what we wanted for our ‘big day’. In the gorgeous bouquets, all around the walls, on every table, twined around door frames, in great silver buckets of splendour, even suspended from the ceiling, they brought a brilliantly colourful and sunny English summer into the heart of our wedding.’ Dave & Lisa, May 2016
“Thank you so so much for the beautiful flowers, the chapel looked stunning! It was exactly how we’d imagined it. Thank you for all your help. We’ll certainly be recommending you to everyone.” Lou Taylor, lou-taylor.co.uk
“Thank you so much Zanna and the team for saving us after our florist fell through last minute. The flowers were absolutely stunning, all we hoped for and more. You really were a god send and words can’t thank you enough for all your hard work, time and care. We would highly recommend you to anyone. You made our day extra special. Thank you.” Lauren Gordon-Wright
