Thankyou for stopping by! I'm Lara, owner of Darling & Wild, established in 2004. I specialise in wedding floristry with an abundant, loose and natural style. I am using my own cutting garden and locally grown flowers wherever possible to capture the essence of the seasons. My style is as nature intended, my knowledge of flower varities is an enormous asset in choosing blooms and I will always try to include soemthing a litlte unusual, Gerberas, carnations and lilies are most definitely NOT for me! So if this strikes a chord with you I would love to hear from you.

Beautiful flowers!

Lara was a font of knowledge when it came to choosing wedding flowers and was able to create beautiful arrangements with limited direction. She was relaxed and accommodating in her approach. I wanted a specific flower relating to my origins and she incorporated these so well into the arrangements.

I would highly recommend Lara.

Thank you Lara for my wonderful flowers!

Lara was recommended to me by my venue and I can honestly say that she was the best choice I could have made. She completely understood what I wanted and went out of her way to ensure that I had a totally unique and bespoke service. My bouquet was beautiful (as were the bridesmaids') and our centrepieces (birdcages) were absolutely amazing!

Lara went out of her way to ensure that I had the 'nature inspired/vintage' style flowers and feel that I wanted and for that I am eternally grateful. She is extremely professional & knowledgeable as well as being great value for money. I found her a lovely person to work with and who truly understands the needs of a bride (and their exact needs!). I can't say how happy I am to have chosen her -in fact, she completely made our day.
