Idylic Italy, warm sunshine soft pinks, whites, lilacs and crimson tones set the background for Tori and Jorge’s beautiful wedding.
“The flowers got so many compliments, and they have pride of place in our living room still. I’m so happy I chose you to make them for me!”
Nancy and Eden got married in July at the gorgeous, relaxed and rustic venue of Higher Eggbeer Farm in Exerter. Both are creative people; Nancy is a Graphic Designer, and Eden Gallup is a musician and bass tech for the band, The Cure. The wedding was held by candlelight in the beautiful ancient barn surrounded by family and friends. Nancy was very clear about what she wanted visually and they chose a stunning colour palete that included teal blues, dark burgundies, burnt orange and amethyst with hints of peppermint green and dusty rose pinks. Nancy’s flower bouquet included wild roses and grasses, seed pods, eucalyptus and berries and now takes pride of place in their home..
Thank you Nancy and Eden for choosing the Sleeping Flower Company to be a part of your amazing day!

Sophie and Sam got married on the 23rd of June 2018 at Pitcalzean House in the spectacular Scottish Highlands. They spent a colourful, relaxed, party style weekend with family and close frinds that included a pub quiz, a game of ‘Rockband’ and an Ice-cream van!! The whole day was relaxed and just perfect - no stress and the opportunity to enjoy every second! To add a special touch to the ceremony, Sophie and Sam held a hand fastening ceremony, using a Mitchell tartan scarf bought by Sophie’s late Nan. This added a really special touch to their big day.
Congratulations Sophie and Sam from the Sleeping Flower Company… and a big-thank you for choosing us to share in your special day!

“ It was such a beautiful day. The flowers were so perfect, thank you!”
Alana and Mateusz were married on the 14th June 2018, on a sunny day in the beautiful medieval town, Comune di Vitorchiano, Italy. It was a wonderful, relaxed day filled with love, laughter, family and friends! Alana got ready for their big day at her mum and dad’s house, whilst Mateusz got dressed right next door!. She wore a stunning, vintage Edwardian dress that had been customised especially for her. Alana and Mateusz were married in a civil ceremony that was conducted by Alana’s mum’s friend, Luigi, who used to be the town Mayor! They drove to the reception at il circolo delle querce (the circle of oaks) in a wonderful Fiat 500 car! The Reception was truly magical, the food was outstanding and they cut their wedding cake right in the middle of the circle of oak trees!
Alana’s bouquet and flower crown were made from a combination of dried and silk blooms in an array of vibrant colours, with lots of lavender, field grasses and bougainvillea.
Big Congratulations to Alana and Mateusz and thank you for choosing Sleeping Flowers!

Dreaming of a romantic wedding? So were Suze and James…and they pulled it off in spectacular fashion by returning to the beautiful beach in Corfu where they first met, to tie the knot! They organised an evening wedding, overlooking the wonderful Agios Stefanos beach, with a spectacular sunset, lots of dancing, family fun, happy tears and skinny dipping at 3am!
Suze and James chose spectacular, golden yellow roses and olive leaves for their flower designs with a touch of white gypsophila, eucalyptus leaves and a variety of wild grasses.
Suze says “I wanted to send you some photos of your beautiful flowers from our wedding day in Agios Stefanos in Corfu on 15th September. It was such a wonderful day and everyone commented on how lovely our flowers were! As you can see, they also stood up to some very vigorous dancing and my crown even stayed put for some skinny dipping at 3am!!”
“Thank you again for our lovely flowers, they were just perfect and I'm so happy we chose you to make them for us!”

“One of the very most important things for us was that everyone had a good time. We knew that we wanted to do something fun but also a bit weird and different.”
She certainly pulled that one off and the Sleeping Flower Company enjoyed every minute of being part of something amazingly creative and different. Thanks for asking us!

Beautiful Rustic style Wedding In Italy At Locanda Rosa Rosae
Sarah and Ric held their wedding ceremony and reception outdoors in the Italian sunshine at the wonderful venue of Locanda Rosa Rosae. They said their vows in front of a small group of family and friends, amongst an array of beautiful flowers, potted herbs, fresh fruit and candelabras – the result was nothing short of perfect!
The Sleeping Flower Company were very pleased to supply flowers for this wonderful occasion. This is what Sarah had to say about us…
After much research on local florists in the area, I decided to have my flowers shipped to Italy. I found The Sleeping Flower Company based in Durham and they did an amazing job at matching the style of flowers that I wanted. I was quite particular about the details, not to mention changed my mind a few times, but Julie was so good at understanding my vision. She makes her bouquets and arrangements with silk and dried flowers and foliage. Admittedly, I was a little apprehensive that they could look ‘fake’, but when I saw them I was absolutely blown away at how beautiful and realistic they looked. And the great thing is that I can now keep my wedding flowers forever!
One final thing! Sarah has her own hand poured candle studio and creates beautiful personalised candle wedding favours If you’re looking for a wedding favours with a difference, then do get in touch with Sarah at Evermore London’s candle favours.

The spectacular gardens at the London Wetland Centre in Barnes provided a stunning and inspiring backdrop for this October wedding. The Bride chose a selection of dark golden roses, white anemone, meadow grasses and berries with hints of orange, peppermint and pale blue, all nestled in a bed of eucalyptus and bay leaves. With matching floral hair clip, buttonholes and table flowers everything came together perfectly!
The Sleeping Flower Company says: We loved being a part of your day! Thank you so much for choosing us!
