Hello Brides and Grooms- hope you are all keeping well? I’ve spent the past couple of afternoons checking rearrangements of dates in the file and diary - I think most of you that have postphoned are sorted for now, but it’s given me a few things to consider for you all, so if you don’t mind I’ve listed them below- Some weekends are going to be extremely busy and I’ve done my best to fit you all in with previous bookings and peak floral dates such as Christmas, Valentines and Mother’s Day so maybe there will have to be a bit of flexibility with your requirements.
If you are thinking of postphoning but haven’t done so and have some dates in mind please let me know ASAP. If you are changing the season your getting married in it can alter the flowers that are available but don’t worry I will advise you of lovely seasonal alternatives, so it needn’t be a bad thing at all, perhaps a good excuse to look at more flower pictures!
If you have rearranged your date and haven’t let me know please do as I’d hate to let anyone down!
If you are a new bride or groom I am taking new bookings and will let you know if I have availability but have a list of other florists I can recommend if I’m not free.
I’m working mornings as a cleaner temporarily and we are attempting to homeschool the boys and get the computer myself so fitting in admins being difficult - I’ve converted a corner of the storeroom to a mini office for now!
I hope that all sounds ok and we’ll see how long this goes on for but do remember whenever you go get married it will be super special for everyone there Xxlaura

This photo was taken this morning by @peter.photo_cumbria , Peter lives in town and photographs weddings, families and CrossFit along with his day job as a chef. At the moment as he can’t do that , he has spent the week photographing key workers at their homes from his car at a 2m distance .
In a slight change from my usual job I’m a temp cleaner at Aldi in town in the mornings (I worked there before we had the shop).
Peter has undertaken this job and I think it’s been a fascinating record of this current time and he’s captured life at the moment perfectly - key workers with their families or colleagues at their work or at home. Thank you Peter.
Follow his Facebook or Instagram for the full series and if you’re local see who you recognise!

Im starting my Instagram introductions about our shop. Here are a few people that work for me flowers wise. Firstly Mary- she is a retired florist (amongst other jobs) and used to work at Kerrs in town years ago, she also lives very near the shop and when she passes the shop always waves or pops in to check what’s coming up . She is great at wiring, sweeping up, good company, loves a challenge, very particular, takes lots of photos and loves a trip out to the various venues we go to! Mary keeps saying she’s going to retire but admits she enjoys the work so much she hasn’t! You’ll know Mary when she’s with me as she always wearing her trademark jumpers.
Next up is India, whose my sister , she has a full time job with the National Trust and helps deliver wedding flowers on Saturdays , despite not being a florist she has plenty of floral and wedding knowledge that she can use when carrying out the very important job of delivering wedding flowers. She also has a new puppy called Margo !
Then there’s Len , who delivers bouquets , he’s a friend and customer whose led the most interesting life working all over the world and at the moment is our delivery driver.
Others that I haven’t pictures of are Laura A who helps out with wedding deliveries when needed she is also a yoga teacher and works for Dalefoot Composts!

After a long and difficult few weeks and the knowledge I won’t be producing many flowers for the next few months, I think I’m going to do something on here to introduce you all to the people, customers and suppliers that contribute to our business - something I’ve wanted to do for ages but haven’t got round to!
Watch this space Laura and Lee

***UPDATE* following Boris announcement tonight we will have to close for the foreseeable future- it’s very sad in a few days when I’ve gathered my thoughts I’ll try and post some positive content and get on with all jobs we’ve being meaning to do, we may also sleep tonight for the first time in a couple of weeks as we now have an idea what’s happening, we are also thinking of all the other business’ that are feeling like we are and I will try and find something positive to occupy our time 😢 Our shop and those on the row - we are @greenwheat , Martins antiques next door , then @thetoffeeshoppenrith and @hearthandhomecumbria (photo from Neil at Toffee Shop). Thanks for all the support and kind words from everyone in the past week, there’s going to be so much to look forward to when this is over

Good morning- just a little update on Mother’s Day this week- the flowers have all arrived and we are good to go, as usual we are delivering locally all over the weekend starting right now! I am full to the brim with beautiful flowers as unfortunately the wedding I had for this weekend has had postponed after the order was placed so there’s lots of gorgeous blooms available for you, that it would break my heart to see go to waste - so I think they’ll be a good deal on some David Austin roses!
Aside from that there’s lots of British grown Smith and Munson tulips- they look gorgeous.
I would also like to say how hard it’s being to get everything here for all my wholesalers (thank you @the_flower_bank @wimvanbohemenflowerexport and Railton Plants) and like us florists they are probably putting a brave face on it all but probably feel like having a good cry .
Well I’m of yours prep these lovely flowers so thank you xlaura

When visiting the shop we have sanitizer and hand washing facilities please do use them.
UPDATE*** all customers that are eating in are requested to wash their hands, those that are taking away or browsing sanitise please.
We are regularly sanitising hard surfaces in the shop.
When I’m out and about delivering hand washing is my priority between venues.
If you have any concerns regarding your wedding do contact me , at the moment it’s very much business as usual . If things change or certain items become unavailable I will let you know and if you have a change in guest number please let me know as soon as you can if I need to alter orders.
Many thanks Laura and Lee

Today is World Book Day #worldbookday , and thankfully Bill is still happy to dress up! In the past we’ve done Wainwright and Wordsworth - well today it’s The Herdy Shepherd @herdyshepherd1 - we hope he doesn’t mind Bills impersonation of him as we have most of the gear apart from a real Floss! #worldbookday2020
