Seasonal English Wedding Flowers

‘I found Zanna through her wonderful Facebook site and she created the flowers for our wedding. They were truly beautiful – from the garland we had on the pillars and tables, to the bouquets and perfect button holes. The colours and flowers she chose were spot on and we can’t thank her enough for making our day so special.’ Love Rhiannon and David, July 2018

 

‘The most enormous thank you for the beautiful flower arch and bouquets you did for us at River Cottage last week! They were all absolutely fantastic and all our guests commented on them. We are so sad to be leaving today but we have a car load of flowers (thanks to you putting them in water for us) and I’m hoping to press/dry as many as I can!!” Laura & Matt, June 2018

“Hi Zanna, Just want to say a big thank you for such beautiful flowers!!! They were perfect, so happy and colourful! Literally what we wanted. Everyone was very happy with the jam jars and they brought so much light and colour, perfect for the day. I loved my bouquet so much and those orange poppies were the dream!! So thank you so so much!!” Rupert y Sara, May 2018

“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 courtesy of https://www.samgibsonweddings.co.uk)

“Zanna understood what I wanted for our wedding more that I did! She was always so helpful and clear and went out of her way to make sure the flowers were perfect for the wedding day. The flowers themselves were beautiful and we had so many compliments throughout the day about how amazing they all smelled and looked. Zanna was a pleasure to work with and so creative with her arrangements. Thank you Zanna for making our day perfect!”  Kirsty & Rich, Symondsbury Barn, May 2017

 

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how impressed I was with the flowers, as was everyone else. They were exactly as I imagined them to be, were so interesting and smelled lovely! You clearly put a lot of thought and effort into them and I am so grateful.
I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone needing flowers in the area and will also let River Cottage know how thrilled we were” Jo & Alex, April 2017

                

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 have joined forces with River Cottage to offer flowers for weddings on their Devon farm, just down the road from us. For more information on that, please see their weddings page.

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.

Testimonials:

 ‘Thank you both for the truly AMAZING job you did of our wedding flowers at River Cottage. They made my heart sing! The flower crown and bouquet was exactly as I’d hoped and completed/complimented the delicate vintage look of the dress perfectly. The River Cottage barn looked stunning with the beautiful colours from the arrangements. It’s no exaggeration to say they made the day!’ Kate Hind, October 2016

 

“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

“Thank you ever so much for the most beautiful display of flowers you did for my wedding. They lasted so well after the week at the Manor house we even got to bring them home with us.  The flexibility you offered to allow me to arrange the flowers made them everything I wanted them to be.” Amy Duquemin
