This is me! I'm Bev, the creative, the florist, the business owner here at Pocket & Posy.
At Pocket & Posy I specialise in growing and arranging luxury eco-friendly flowers for weddings across the North east of England.
I marry luxury hand grown flowers with quality eco-conscious varieties grown by myself and others who tread lightly and care about the world that we live in.
I source the majority of my flowers from the UK, growing as much as possible myself. I'm striving to reduce the amount of imported flowers I use by showing couples that by choosing British you really do have the best that mother nature can offer for the season.
I work at home from my studio outside in my garden. Usually, you'll find me wearing my wellies, tending to plants, potting up seedlings or cutting blooms from my cut flower garden to use in luxury wedding installations.
My Daughter is the reason I do what I do. Creating a good life for her, one filled with nature, surrounded by flowers with creativity at the centre of everything we do.
I've always been creative with a Degree in Contemporary Applied Art, as well as qualifications in Floristry. My background in composition, colour and design is shown in my floristry work.
I believe if we can do something in an eco-conscious way we should damn well do it. There is no reason why one of the most naturally beautiful industries should contribute to the earths demise.
When i first stepped into the world of floristry I was taken aback by the sheer amount of plastic waste, the huge amounts of air miles. The poor working conditions and the pollution of water through the use of floristry foam made of plastic.
