Pickleberry Flowers is the most amazing floristry business, based in Leicestershire and run by my gorgeous friend, Isobel Cole.
Isobel and I met back in 2014 when she was maid of honour and I was bridesmaid at my brother’s wedding. Since she then moved to Leicestershire, we've struck up a real friendship and I adore her work so much that there was no question I would ask her to be our wedding florist!
While Isobel is mother to twin boys, the name Pickleberry was inspired by her dachsunds, who she calls “the girls”! Pickles and Nelly are absolutely gorgeous, and so affectionate (and I am 100% not biased…. but I do really want one!)
Isobel has over 15 years of floristry experience, going right back to her teens when she spent time at her sister’s flower shop in Norfolk. Isobel began helping out, first in the shop, then at events – buttonholes being her speciality at this point!
When she relocated to Leicester, Isobel started studying floristry at Brooksby College in Melton Mowbray and was recommended to also qualify as a teacher, meaning she is fully able to instruct other budding florists.
Isobel describes her style as country, rustic and personal. She is able to offer a huge amount of advice to her clients and tailor her floristry to the look they want. She is incredibly warm and friendly, and makes anyone feel at ease when she talks to them!
She grows seasonal flowers in her own garden, and cuts others from Keythorpe Hall's walled garden so she knows exactly the journey from seed to arrangement. This is something that makes Pickleberry so unique, all the flowers are British grown and as local as possible to Isobel's home.
In my opinion, there is no better choice for your wedding flowers. Isobel is unbelievably creative and my wedding flowers were one of the stand outs of our day.
