Floribunda Rose  Musings of Sarah Diligent ~ Eco Florist. Founder & Owner of Floribunda Rose. British florals & foraged foliage for fabulous weddings


Exploring & chilling & birthdaying...

Sunday faffings... It has been one incredibly busy Summer & when I got home last night I was exhausted & elated in equal measures. There have been huge successes & a couple of 'how on Earth an I going to work this out' moments & I've pushed myself harder than ever to try & make every wedding my best work. It's the best feeling in the world when clients are delighted with the work my team and I put in. I can't wait for the professional pictures to start rolling in so that I can show you what we've been up to ~ my iPhone snaps are completely puny compared to the magical way that uber talented photographers capture the mood, the moment & the details of wedding days...
In the meantime I'm off to Spain to spend some time with family & catch up on some sleep. Happy Monday folks. I hope it's as kind to you as it is shiny & new. Back soon xx

Autumn I love you... πŸ‚

I've just cleared my last wedding of wedding season ~ so it's off to the studio for an afternoon of sorting things out & getting it ready for buckets & bouquets weddings, workshops and Winter Weddings! For now though I'm fully embracing the opportunity to wear cosy boots, a lovely warm scarf & appreciate all things autumnal.

This gorgeous photo of a lovely couple who were married this time last year was shot by @markshawphotos & makes me feel all the autumn feels πŸ‚πŸ’•πŸ’«

Appreciating every last rose (almost as much as this gorgeous bee!) For every thing there is a season... clinging on to summers best whilst loving the prospect of a change of colours & textures, cosy jumpers & roaring fires... Photo by the lovely @natasha_hurley

Dahlias as big as your head (and a team who feel like family...) Can't ask for much more than that.

Miserable weather ~ magical vibes... Doing a little rain dance (yep really!) and hoping the rain will have rained so much there will be none left for my lovely Bride Jennifer this weekend... It may sound daft but I remember so clearly the butterflies, the excitement and the anticipation of the week of my wedding ~ I remember feeling like everything was about to be different but in the most wonderful way. I wondered if I'd actually feel any different as Mrs Diligent ~ and you know what? I did. I felt like a little boat in a huge ocean with an anchor I'd never had before... like I could weather any storm, deal with anything life threw at me & though it may be hard at times I'd be secure, come what may. We had the most fantastic wedding day (despite a few issues along the way!) and I know that I know that I know that I married the right man. Here's to each and every bride with a million things running through their minds as they prepare to marry their best friends too... The best is yet to come! Happy Monday (despite the rain) X

Oh Autumn, how I love you... Definitely my favourite time of the year. Roaring fires, gorgeous foliages & incredible texture!
So this evening I've come home after a long hard day & my feet and my back ache. The dog's delighted to see me, the fire is lit, the red wine is breathing & my husband has cooked me dinner... I'm wrapping up underneath a blanket and thanking my lucky stars that I'm loved & he's got my back.

I genuinely believe the only thing that's better than getting married is being married & I hope that feeling lasts for ever & ever and ever. How glad I am... #britishflowers #autumn #roaringfire #vinrouge #happiness #weddingflorist #thehappynow

So I was recently thrown in at the deep end & asked to present for 60 seconds (to a hundred people!!!) to describe what problem my business solves, what it actually does & what I want it people hearing my pitch to do... *totally terrifying πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
It made me focus, cut all jargon and be succinct (for once!) So if you have 60 seconds and are interested in any of that ☝️here you go! πŸ‘‡

Floribunda Rose creates beautiful high end and eco friendly Floral Design which transforms venues and delivers unforgettable British flowers with exceptional service.
Florists have been using toxin filled Floral foam since the 1920's. This cannot be re used, never breaks down in landfill and is carcinogenic. Most florists work with imported stock ~ which means perfect roses all year round and a big carbon footprint. I believe there's another way.
I champion Seasonal British flowers & foraged foliages. We use pre 1920's techniques (alongside a few more modern ones) and I intend to inspire both the public and the floristry world with our art and show that floristry can be done in an eco friendly way.
British flowers are beautiful, quirky and fragrant and the quality and range of flowers available is incredible.

What I ask of you today is that you consider where the flowers you see around you have come from & the impact they've had on the environment getting here.
If you'd like to find out more, I would love to talk to you about what makes British Flowers so special and why I think it's so important to tell the world there's another way.

Berries, scented foliages & garden roses for a botanical wedding at the beautiful @folkingtonmanor... Next up ~ A beautiful wedding with a delicate blue colour palette in the New forest... Can't wait!

Gorgeous photography thanks to @nicola_stegmann

Just so happy and so very grateful when clients send me emails like this... Sarah,

I honestly don't know how to thank you for everything you have done.
From the moment we met you, your incredible creativity and talent was evident. It was clear you understood our ideas and knew how to go about creating exactly what we wanted.
Then your help with the missing frames. You went above and beyond what was expected to help fix the situation.
The bouquets and button holes were just perfect.
And the room... I don't know where to begin. We were absolutely blown away. The place looked magical. It was exactly what I had imagined in my head, and so much more. And we have had so many comments about how amazing it all was.
All our suppliers were absolutely fantastic on the day, and delivered beyond what we had imagined to make it the most perfect day for us. But you stood out.
If there is anything we can do to help you please let us know... testimonials, photos, recommendations, anything!

Kerri and Stefan

Teamwork ~ Without my amazing team my dreams & imaginings would be just that. With them at my side those dreams become real. Thank you so much to everyone who has worked with me already this year! September, October, November & December show no signs of letting up ~ perhaps we'll rest in January!!! (Wish I'd got a picture of the whole team before they left on Sunday but I only thought of it at the end of the set up) Massive thanks guys! X

Naked bridesmaid waiting for her @lancasterandcornish ribbons... So I finally finished clearing with my team at 3.15am after a 1am clear down & im going to be drinking all the coffee today... gotta get the van back to Hampshire & unload & then I get to cuddle my spaniel. All worth it (still on a high after yesterday's wedding tbh). We used all British flowers & the fragrance was sensational ~ my new favourites are Acidanthera, delicately scented, super pretty & they last beautifully too... what's not to love? Happy Monday! X
