We are really excited to be featuring the fabulous Miss Pickering Florist and her gorgeous hound in our Wedding Supplier Wednesday blog - as she truly is an inspiration. After a varied career in food and fashion and living in France, Milan and Notting Hill, Miss P fulfilled her childhood desire to open a floral emporium. Her beautiful medieval shop, based in Stamford, is packed to the beamed rafters with seasonal flowers, foliage and herbs and plants. Miss P only use only the finest quality flowers, with an emphasis on local growers.
Pretty vintage jugs are filled with hydrangea heads, peonies and armfuls of roses, all of which are available to buy along with cake stands, vintage linens and homewares, and a marvellous selection of greetings cards.
Recently featured in the Mail on Sunday 'YOU' Magazine 'At Home' section, and with other press including Country Living, Red Magazine, Wedding, Garden Answers, Joules Magazine, Stamford Living and Embrace, Simone really is a lady who knows her stuff. Lets find out more.
I started my own business so that i could fill the shop with only the flowers i love, and bring our own take to weddings
Our flowers are a blend of locally grown flowers, home grown herbs and the very best of flowers from Holland and further afield. We like to put our own Miss P spin on things, vintage containers, ribbons and what have you. We have in-depth consultations with our brides, and get to know very well what look they are hoping to achieve for their day
Every single day is different, whether it is a wedding prep day, installation day or just a day selling flowers for birthdays etc. i love playing a part in the most important times of peoples lives, weddings, births, celebrations and even death
Simone went on to tell me some interesting facts you might not know about Miss Pickering (aside from her humour of course):
I drink Earl grey tea and gin - not at the same time
My favourite flowers this week are....tuberose, the scent is so very sexy.
Today i lost the back of one of my precious diamond studs, though thankfully not the earring. (although if she did she would OF COURSE get a replacement from JKD!)
Today i am trying to look like Whitney Port from The City - and failing.
I speak 4 languauges.
I really do love weddings.
My current thinking is that coloured table linen at weddings is good.
I prefer low tablecentres
At home i cut flowers and herbs from the garden and put them in jam jars on the kitchen table.
My favourite colour is slubby.
The first single i bought came free with a pair of Clark's school shoes and was "Gold" by spandau ballet
I might be the only person in the world who prefers yellow gold to platinum
