Goodness Gracious, Great Balls of Flowers!

Here at the Great British Florists, we've done some pretty unusual things with flowers and get different requests all the time, but until now we've never received a request so, well.... round. For a wedding at a local parish we were asked to produce some hanging balls of flowers, 360 degree arrangements, to look stunning from any angle. Our floristry team created these beautiful British Flower AMAZE-Balls, to be hung from the ceiling of the church, suspended above the ceremony below. The interior was created by Heather and the outside was dressed by Jan The Flower and Katrina, our floristry ladies. They contain a great selection of British Flowers including;
  • Lanus Gladioli
  • Feverfew
  • Gypsophilia
  • Nigella
  • Larkpur
  • Scabious
  • Brodea
  • Phlox
  • Lavendar
From this;                                                              To this; On Saturday morning the whole GBF team assembled at Bredwardine Church to hang the balls from chains on the ceiling, using a multitude of ladders, various ropes and knots-a-plenty. Once they were hung Jan re-dressed them to ensure they look spectacular all over. Our lovely Katrina documented their creation with number of photos viewable in the gallery below (Including the post set-up celebration!) ; As I'm sure you'll agree, they look absolutely stunning! A great way to add an extra splash of colour into the ceremony, perfect for any beautiful natural countryside weddings. If you would love to have some similar British Flower Balls at your Wedding or Event we will be really pleased to make them for you. They weigh a maximum of 15 kilos each and are approximately 1 metre diameter.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely bouquet of flowers that you sent to my daughter today. She's been shielding since February so these made her day. She was delighted that there were no lilies in the flowers as she suffers with hayfever. Thank you - Helen P

Just to say a lovely thank you for the beautiful arrangement of flowers for the funeral sheaf I ordered for my fathers funeral. He was 91 and always interested in the environment and wildflowers. The arrangement was just perfect. Many thanks once again - Magda B

My family arranged for you to deliver flowers for my birthday last Monday and I have to say that they are the best flowers I have ever received! After a week they are still looking amazing and are likely to do so for several days yet. Thank you very much! - Mary B
