Didsbury florist The Flower Lounge has been crowned the UK’s Wedding Florist of the Year after just seven years in business.
The Wedding Industry Awards seek to recognise and reward excellence within the estimated £10bn UK wedding industry and after winning the title of North West Florist of the Year in late 2016, the team at The Flower Lounge went on to claim the title of the country’s best wedding florist.
Sian Wild, owner of The Flower Lounge said: “This award is a huge achievement for us and really helps us to put florists north of the M25 on the map!
“We have been designing beautiful and innovative creations from our shop in Didsbury for the last 7 years and have worked with some fantastic brides and grooms. I was overwhelmed to learn that over 60 couples nominated and took the time to vote for us. This makes the award all the more special!”
Sian and her team went on to compete against the best in the industry; creating sample floral designs for the prestigious judges to examine and make their final decisions.
World renowned florist and judge, Paula Pryke OBE, commented: “It was a very high standard of work this year. Sian understands how much hard work the process is…and her work made my heart skip a beat and that is what the magic is.”
Sian has nurtured and grown the wedding floristry side of her business, operating out of her boutique shop on Barlow Moor Road. Her artistic flair and attention to detail has not only brought her to the attention of the top wedding industry awards, but also to the floristry industry across the UK.
