I often get asked to recommend various suppliers to my couples, I’ve been shooting weddings for over 5 years now so I’ve worked with loads of different suppliers. There’s so much choice out there it can be hard to know where to begin! I’ve decided to do a supplier spotlight blog every month to highlight awesome suppliers who I know and have worked with often. I’m kicking off this feature with Ginger Lily Florist. They’re a floristry team based in Shropshire, consisting of Denise and Cat who work together closely with their clients to create gorgeous, natural, slightly wild bouquets and floral arrangements for weddings.
I first became aware of Ginger Lily Florist back in 2016 when I shot a wedding in Shrewsbury for the lovely Charlotte and Tully. I was blown away by how big and wild Charlotte’s bouquet was, it was so different to most bridal bouquets I’d seen. Charlotte passed on Denise’s details and I’ve been recommending her to my couples ever since. They’ve done the flowers for many weddings I’ve shot, and it’s always lovely to bump into them in the morning to say a quick hello. I know that if my couples have booked Denise and Cat then they’re in safe hands, the flowers are going to be beautiful and my couples will definitely get exactly what they were after.
I’ve also used their expertise myself when I’ve done styled shoots in the past, I know I can give Denise a vague idea of what I want for a shoot and she’ll absolutely blow me away every time. They’ve since grown their business to add on Ginger Moon Hire, where they also offer prop hire and venue dressing. They even have a studio set up in Telford where couples can go to see various set ups and props and they can also meet Denise and Cat and have a good chat with them about what they’re looking for for their wedding day. They also use this space to sell gifts and plants, I popped in to say hello not too long ago and walked out with a succulent which is still going strong!
If you’re on the hunt for a florist and venue dressing in Shropshire then Ginger Lily Florist and Ginger Moon Hire are definitely worth checking out!
