About

Damson and Vine is no ordinary florist…

We are a floral design studio and flower farm based in Shropshire, also servicing Herefordshire, Worcestershire and beyond. Though our main focus is to provide wedding flowers using predominantly British grown flowers, we offer a variety of services from everyday gift bouquets, sympathy/funeral flowers and event flowers.

At Damson & Vine we do things a little differently…

“So, what’s so different about you?” I hear you cry! Well, for starters, the majority of the flowers we use are British grown, either sourced from our wonderful network of local artisan growers, or straight from our farm. Our beautiful cut flowers are grown on 1/3 of an acre of land that used to be part of my mum’s plant nursery, here in the South Shropshire hills. I essentially grew up in a poly-tunnel, so I guess it’s in my genes to see the flowers I use in my designs all the way from seed to stem

Floristry wasn’t always on my radar…

Originally, I wanted to work for a non-profit organisation or have a career in peace keeping abroad. I was studying for a masters when a lecturer told us that unless we ended up being heads of state then there wasn’t much we could do to change anything (talk about a buzzkill…). So instead I had a career change, and I packed it all in to ‘do’ flowers, and inadvertently found my calling!

I honed my skills in sunny Brighton, before moving back to my home county of Shropshire in 2017 to grow, and design with, beautiful British flowers.

But now…

I’ve discovered that through flowers I can still make a positive change. Our designs are eco-conscious (less foam more flowers, and British grown as much as possible). I love the way they can bring people joy, and cheer people up during the worst of times. My drive to have a positive impact on people’s lives is totally fulfilled in my work – whether you notice it or not, flowers are so often used to mark the most important milestones in a person’s life, bringing happiness and comfort to all of life’s weird and wonderful ups and downs.

Kofi Annan I sure aint, but promoting sustainable British grown flowers, and a greener, more eco-conscious attitude towards my work can’t be a bad place to start in making a positive change.
