Famous florist to open dealership in Booths, Ilkley
Booths in Ilkley is launching a seasonal flower concession with Yorkshire Florist, Leafy Couture on September 22.
Founder Sarah Richardson is a famous wedding florist, the recommended florist for top places like Harewood House and Denton Hall. Notable wedding clients include Yorkshire Olympic cyclist Lizzie Armistead and Look North broadcaster Keely Donovan. Sarah even taught “national treasure” Mary Berry how to make a Christmas wreath on BBC 2.
The Leafy Couture dealership will be restocked daily with bespoke bouquets and foliage to organize at home in a range of colors and seasonal themes from sleek monochromes to bold, punchy designs. Custom bouquets are also available for pre-order and to pick up in store. From Thursday to Saturday, there will be a florist in store to compose your bouquet while you shop.
âFlowers make people happy, and my focus is on the best quality scented seasonal bouquets of flowers, arranged with elegance and flair,â said Sarah Richardson of Leafy Couture.
âWe take great care to prepare meals with the best seasonal produce and I think ethics should extend to the flowers on the table. We will tailor our bouquets to order, from vibrant to elegant. We source our flowers from the best growers, stocking UK flowers in season and buying the best flowers in the market from further afield. I even include flowers from my own garden, my favorites are the large, blousy dahlias which have a long life stalk in the vase and offer something uniquely grown in Yorkshire.
Kiosk buyer Tom Hargreaves said, âKiosks are renowned for the local acidification of foods, and this philosophy can and should be extended to horticulture and floristry. By working with small businesses, like Leafy Couture, we can offer something totally unique to our market.
âOur customers love the quality and local assurance of fresh, seasonal produce. The same is true of flowers, the simple seasonal beauty of perfectly arranged seasonal flowers is a joy and a pleasure.
