Hello and a warm welcome to Big Day Blooms!
I’m Sophie, a dog loving, coffee fuelled, proud mum of two beautiful girls, based in the scenic Vale of Belvoir, Nottinghamshire, whose greatest life passion is all things floral.
As a child, the sweet fragrance, and vibrant hues of roses in my beloved Granny’s garden captivated me. Time spent with my dad in his hobby garden, filled with trailing Honeysuckle, fragrant Lavender bushes, and majestic Alliums, further nurtured my budding plant obsession. Fast forward a few years and I’m a preteen sat on a Norfolk beach dreaming of future love when a wedding party with buttonholes and bouquets a plenty sit down for an informal picnic style reception in the dunes. I found myself taken by the perfect mix of fun and romance, seemingly curated to the couple’s very own style.
These experiences planted the seeds for my journey into the world of floristry, in turn, founding Big Day Blooms. Today, I am here to turn your flower dreams into reality, whether it’s a wedding or a grand event. My passion lies in collaborating with you to deliver the perfect floral creations, abundant with seasonal blooms, bespoke to your big day.
In a world abundant with choices and inspiration, (and lots of ‘friendly advice’!), I use my extensive knowledge and experience to guide you in selecting the right flowers and foliage. I aim to create a harmonious balance of colours, textures, and fragrances that not only complement your chosen venue, but also awaken a range of senses.
My best self shines through when meeting and talking with people. I offer fully complimentary consultations (with coffee, of course!) and would welcome the chance to meet you to discuss your flower needs. Feel free to call me or use the contact page to arrange a consultation. Being enthusiastic about delivering an exceptional level of detail and quality, I only take on a set number of weddings each week, so I recommend reaching out sooner rather than later in your planning process.
Whether you’re in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, or beyond, I am delighted at the prospect of being part of your big day.
P.S. I confess, I can talk endlessly about flowers, so brace yourself!
P.P.S. Coffee is optional; we can chat over tea or even indulge in some bubbly.
