Unique Service from Seedlings to Stunning Arrangements

Fiona grows her own flowers and foliage, managing careful planting, strategic cutting, and timing the growth cycle to ensure that the blooms are at their absolute best, perfection, for the day of your wedding.

As well as having magic powers in the garden she is a wonderful listener, this super power meant that she realised our dreams of colour and structure, gently guiding our choices and suggesting combinations that worked wonderfully well for an October wedding.

As well as having incredible visual impact the subtle scent of the locally grown arrangements was just glorious, all through the RSA the table arrangements and hangings gently perfumed the building.

Fiona made flower crowns for the tiny bridesmaids that they didn't want to take off, button holes for the groomsmen that complemented the bridesmaids bouquets and added unique blooms to the Groom's buttonhole and Bride's bouquet symbolising their special relationship.

On a larger scale she manufactured meadow boxes that lined the Grand Staircase and decorated the Vaults for the after party.

Fiona's approach to sustainability is impressive, she is happy to source vintage cut crystal and glassware and her lovely husband makes the meadow boxes (as well as delicious scones) so that they are a perfect fit for the space. At her suggestion we gifted the individual tiny vases that decorated the tables as wedding favours providing a personal and exclusive treasure to take home that will be enjoyed for years to come.

Air miles are not a concern as all our flowers were grown by Fiona right here in the UK, in her garden and on her allotment, but there was some milage to take into account. Fiona is based near Chesterfield but arrived in London bright eyed and bushy tailed on Saturday morning to bring the wedding to life.

The consultation process was great, initially by email, thank you Hitched, then over the phone and finally in person where we visited twice, once to talk in principle and then a few weeks before to finalise all the tiny details, and to see our flowers almost ready to be cut.

We wholeheartedly recommend Upside-down in a Flower Bed, Fiona's knowledge is only matched by her skill.

Personalized and perfect

We chose Fiona because she offered the option to go to her garden and choose out your flowers. Which for me just added that extra bit of personalisation. Fiona did a brilliant job of creating our perfect bunch with very little information from myself as I had no knowledge of flowers. She was amazing to work with an we had no stress at all through the whole process. Would highly recommend!!!

Absolutely stunning flowers and amazing team

Fiona and team were absolutely incredible. I have honestly never seen so many beautiful flowers, all of which were home grown and put together in Fiona's studio with her wonderful team. Everyone said how stunning the flowers were and how enchanting they made our wedding look!

I'm so glad that we went with the bespoke wedding package. Fiona really understood what we were looking for from our decorations and she did EVERYTHING, including all of our bouquets, flowers for our hair, buttonholes for the boys, corsages for our family members, meadow boxes, church entrance, church urns, our archway, venue decorations - honestly! There were so many flowers and it made me SO HAPPY! And for an October wedding too we still had Roses, Dahlias, Sun flowers, Delphiniums, Amaranthus, Cosmos, Eucalyptus, Ivy, Maple, Mint, Rosemary - the rosemary too in my bouquet smelled amazing.

If you're thinking about booking a florist book this one. The loveliest lady and team 😘

Amazing winter wedding floristry!

Fiona was incredible, going above and beyond to grow some incredibly beautiful flowers for our centrepieces that we could pot and keep - and give as favours to those who had helped us! Long lasting, excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

Stunning flowers

Fiona was fantastic from start to finish. As someone who knows nothing about flowers I was guided really well as to what would look nice and what would be suitable. I had colours in mind and then left the rest to Fiona and I'm glad I did! The flowers were absolutely stunning, even better than I ever imagined and we had so many comments from guests about them. I also love the fact that she grows them all herself so there's no importing, al nice and local. I would highly recommend using upsidedowninaflowerbed for your upcoming wedding!

Bespoke, beautiful and home grown

We loved working with Fiona to develop our perfect floral designs for our wedding day. Fiona understood exactly what we were trying to achieve and put together the perfect package. We loved being able to visit Fiona's garden and see our wedding flowers growing, and the photo updates. Having the flowers grown locally to us was also a huge factor for us - we appreciated being able to minimise our carbon footprint on the flowers. Thank you Fiona - it was perfect!

Fiona is an absolute dream to work with and she is an incredible florist!

Fiona is amazing! I wish we could get married again simply just to have an excuse to have another room full of flowers. She listened to everything that we wanted and she went above and beyond what we could ever have dreamed of. The room looked amazing, all of our guests commented on the flowers and they all wanted to take some home. The room smelled incredible too. Fiona grows all of her own flowers in her fabulous garden and just after talking to her for a couple of minutes you’ll see how passionate she is about it and how much she wants to make your day as special as can be. We would highly recommend Fiona to anyone. Thank you for all your hard work that went into making our wedding day the best day of our lives 💕

Amazing, fabulous and Thank you :)

I was a disorganised bride with lots of thing still left to plan, when I spoke to Fiona she immediately calmed me down. Fiona was extremely friendly, professional and prompt. She made the most brilliant flowers that made my wedding day extra special.
Thank you! Thank you! You were fabulous from start to finish.
