Macarons and Flowers…. These are a few of our favourite things! Everybody needs a wee bit of luxury now and again so we thought we’d write a little article about our favourite florists in Edinburgh. The list below will provide you with the perfect wedding planner guide, the flowers that these florists provide are as colourful and elegant as our wedding macaron towers and favours.
The beautiful Rose and Ammi is first on our list. The style is rustic, romantic, and natural with a subtle vintage feel. There is a wild and untamed approach in the designs which enhance the natural beauty in the flowers. Lydia Cywinski opened Rose & Ammi a couple of years ago and has grown the business into a successful enterprise.
This list would be incomplete without the well-established Narcissus. The business was originally set up by Sharon Nugent who now not only runs the company but also teaches apprentices who are keen to learn the floral skills. The shop is predominantly modern, but it also holds onto traditional floral practices. It is a beautiful shop to visit and browse the bountiful blooms, highly recommendable!
Rogue Flowers has a quaint and understated village style to it. It was started by Alice Shaw, at the time a student (respect), who fell in love with flowers after working in her local florists. Alice has achieved a prestigious list of commissions, including The National Museum of Scotland and the International Film Festival.
The Pyrus Studio & Flower Garden was started by the floral pioneers Natalya Ayers and Fiona Inglis. Natalya and Fiona decided to start a business that favoured locally sourced and home grown plants over the Dutch suppliers. Both ladies have training in the fine and applied arts and their work is inspired by the living landscape, taxidermy, bees, Victorian walled gardens and glasshouses, fashion and poetry.
The florist Stems is one of the best known in Edinburgh. From the boutique posies they offer to their ‘wow factor’ wedding floral displays they cater for everything that you may need. They have over 15 years of experience designing and creating wonderful pieces and in doing so have fine tuned the floral practise.
Last but by no means least on the list is the florist shop Pollination. Set up by Gill and Nik Wilson, who favour contemporary style with exotic twists, inspired by years of travel. They particularly focus on their online presence, with their handcrafted bunches being ordered across the U.K. (like our macarons!).
So we come to the end of the list, why don’t you lovely people treat yourself to a bouquet of flowers and a box of macarons. The perfect gift for anybody yearning for some luxury.
