Florist Spotlight: From The Potting Shed
Hello! Welcome to my vendor spotlight! This post is all about an amazing florist: From The Potting Shed. If you have browsed any of the wedding blogs I have posted you will notice a trend, a lot of the floral arrangements and bouquets were created by the talented Elaine (the women behind from the potting shed). If you have not checked them out take a moment and browse the magic and beauty of Elaine’s work in action: Caitlin + Mike & Jess + Derrick.
The Stone Cottage Studio + Shop
The stone cottage studio and the shop transport you into a different world. The french peasant gardens surrounding the property that Elaine nurtured welcome you when you visit the property. If you visit in the summer (During open houses / appointment only) have a scent of beautiful lavender.
I suggest you take a moment right now, and follow @fromthepottingshed on instagram. This is where they post about open houses, and promotions.
After you take a stroll in the gardens and picture yourself living in this lovely home, you can then go in and visit the shop. Elaine goes to Paris every year and sources the wonderful, unique items in her shop. I know I know, why am I talking so much about the cottage and the shop.. this is supposed to be about the vendor. But I feel it’s important to share these details with you, because Elaine and her team put the same love and care into each and every couples floral arrangements that goes into this beautiful stone cottage studio.
This is also a shameless plug for me, because I would love to shoot an engagement/ceremony/first look here. So if you are wondering where to do your photos you can arrange to have it here!
Why From The Potting Shed?
Every wedding I have worked and been a guest of that Elaine and her team have done the floral arrangements for, the couple rave’s about their experience! I rave about how lovely the flowers are, and how well the photograph. But it’s ultimately the client experience that I focus on when suggesting a vendor to a couple. I suggest From The Potting Shed to every one (this could also be why most of weddings had her work at it this year!). From the very first consult you have, Elaine and her team turn ordering floral arrangements into an experience (can I just say BRIDAL FLORAL PARTY!).
All the brides I had this year that worked with Elaine said that From the Potting Shed met and exceed their expectations. I think they also enjoyed how excited I got when I saw the flowers. I can always tell when it’s From The Potting Sheds work – it’s stylish, romantic and timeless!
It’s important to note that her team when setting up a venue are timely, professional, aware of your vision and committed to bringing it to life! Weddings can be stressful as we all know, but Elaine and her team help take that stress away when it comes to the floral part of planning and they make it fun! Not only do I highly recommend From The Potting Shed, but so do other venue’s in the community – they are the in house florists for Langdon Hall!
When it comes to vendors I recommend, it is because it’s someone I would want to be there from me on my special day or big event.
