Natural sympathy flowers

Sympathy or floral tribute work can be a very rewarding experience, both for the family involved and the florist. I prefer working on natural arrangements that are very different in style - a far cry from the traditional chrysanthemum based designs. I can create a full sized coffin spray for a natural burial just using moss, twine and twigs as a base - no plastic or floral foam involved. The beauty of the natural materials shines through, which is particularly fitting for woodland burials.

"The flowers for my father’s funeral were just perfect. Clare is a real artist, such a sensitive eye for colour, texture and composition. She was lovely to talk to, listened very thoughtfully and completely exceeded our expectations with the result. Love the eco friendly aspects and that she is an independent business too."

I mostly design with seasonality in mind but understand that some flowers have significance for a family and will do my best to include special requests. Please note, I only include lilies when specifically requested.

If you would like something a little different for your tribute, I can work with your ideas to create something individual and unique. Veg plots, apples from a garden, album covers and keepsakes have all been sources of inspiration for designs in the past. To order your bespoke flowers drop me a line or give me a call on 01223 967750 to discuss your requirements.

If you're happy to leave the design up to me, you can order online for local delivery:
