Hello and welcome - thankyou for dropping by!

 

I'm Sally Johnson, a specialist wedding florist based in Leeds, and working across the whole of Yorkshire and beyond. Simply put, I just LOVE the world of weddings and creating truly stunning bridal & venue flowers for one of the most important days of your life!

 

Flowers can really brighten any day, but are even more extra special on your wedding day. There are so many beautiful varieties and colours to choose from, along with endless different ways they can be displayed. I aim to share many of these flower varieties and designs with you in future months.

 

I hope you enjoy my blog posts - please feel free to leave comments and do get in touch if I can be of any help.

 

Best wishes, Sally x
