Suppliers spotlight – Floral Sistas / Swaffham Florist
This month on the suppliers spotlight is the amazing Floral Sistas. I have followed these girls for years and was over the moon when I got to work with them last year. Their flowers never disappoint and always look so amazing.
I’m totally delighted to introduce Floral Sistas so that they can tell you a little bit more about them ….
How long you been in business?
12.5 years starting as Swaffham Florist and now rebranding to Floral Sistas
What’s the best part of your job?
Forming relationships with our clients and then seeing them at other weddings, events etc. We have clients that we have done wedding flowers for and then we have done their brothers or sisters, their friends etc and it goes from there, we also love it when our past clients attend our workshops or we are asked to do a workshop as a surprise for a baby shower of a past bride.
What’s the worst part of your job?
Aside from dirty buckets and smelly water a lot of people see floristry as a lovely pretty job but thats actually only as small part of it, we have so much paper work to keep on top of and thats probably the worst part!
What’s the weirdest request you’ve ever had from a client?
We were once asked to make a Dragon as a funeral tribute by a client for their great aunt – it was a private joke between them but we did it!
What’s been your favourite ever wedding you’ve worked on/at?
Oh gosh – this is a tough one! We have so many that have stood out for various reasons, we couldn’t possibly say, but if we had to give an answer it would probably be our Megans and also our younger sister Maries as it meant we had full free reign on creativity and design.
You’re surrounded by beauty in your job. What do you find beautiful?
We love it when we are trusted to design for a client, quite often the most beautiful bouquets or wedding set-ups are from those that have said, this is my colour pallet and style I like – go for it!
Best piece of advice to offer to those getting married-
trust your suppliers and get booked in early if you know you wish to work with certain suppliers!
Anyone you particularly admire in the industry?
We have to of course say our girl Penny at The Little Lending Company she has such an eye for detail and is always coming up with new and innovative concepts that leads a lot of our designs.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? –
‘Its nice to be nice’
You – lets have some fun
We both love our food and probably have a list thats too long but one we would both agree on and is local to us would be The White Horse Brancaster Staithe – its amazing and has the best afternoon tea around!
Michelle will answer this one as its a simple easy answer – Grease!!
again and easy one for the both of us it has to be a Pornstar Martini
Neither of us have a favourite super hero but during this uncertain time we have the upmost respect for the super heros of the NHS and key workers.
other than probably too many clothes – nope!
For both Megan and I we would both say our proposal stories, Megan was proposed to in her cottage on Christmas Day and Michelle was surprised on St.Patrick Days at Cliveden House.
Thank you so much to Michelle and Megan for letting us know more about them and your amazing business. I can not wait to work with you again and see some more of your beautiful flowers. I will be attending a work show this year too. See you soon xxx
