Just some magic hellebore action for your Tuesday evening scroll time ✨✨

This beautiful wedding last year of Alison & Peter, totally a dream couple. We felt so privileged to be part of it. Now a 4 page spread today in Your Sussex Wedding Magazine. Exciting! 😍 . . .@events_by_design3 @jacquimcsweeneyweddings @thesaltroombrighton @kasserina @royalpaviliongardens @ianstuart_bride @cwm_wedding @gavinharviehair . . . #chirpeeflowers #ladyinred #weddingmagazine #weddingflorist #sussexflorist #luxurywedding #luxuryweddingvenue #beauty #beautifulflowers #beautifulbride

A sheaf that I forgot to post a photo of a few weeks ago (which now seems like a lifetime ago!) As my friends and family will know, I was days away from finishing my part-time job to focus on floristry full time when all of this happened. Think this is the Universe telling me it wasn’t the right time, but it’s made me more determined then ever to make a career out of the thing I love doing most! #grateful #determinedtosucceed #sussexflorist #excitingthingstocome #floristry

A few tips on how to care for pot bulbs after they've flowered. I filmed this short clip about a week ago, it really was a windy day! Please feel free to DM with any questions you might have. No I don't usually garden in leopard print but why not eh!? Full video on IGTV.

We may not get to our festivals this year, but that doesn't mean you can't rock the lewks. Hands up who'd like a flower crown tutorial? Double tap to let me know and I'll see if I can get some packs of wire and tape made up and put on the webshop for postal deliveries 🧡 . . . . . . . . . . . #peoniesfrompluto #outofthisworldfloraldesigns #sunnytheflowercat #eastsussexflorist #sussexflorist #florist #floristsofinstagram #flowerstagram #flowersofinstagram #sussexflowergirl #flowers #supportlocal #localflorist #rotherfield #eastsussex #tunbridgewells #kentflorist #kent #sussex #crowborough #flowershop #floristshop #localbusiness

s i m p l e • ____ Keep it simple is my current mantra. With flowers it works every time like with this hellebore and young twisted willow foliage. Add a beautiful raw silk ribbon and your good to go 🖤 ____ ______ #hellebore #hellebores #springbouquet #springweddinginspiration #floralinspiration #weddinginspiration #wildflowers #bohobride #fineartbride #stylishbride #bridetobe2021 #brideinspiration #florist #weddingflowers #sussexflorist #creativeflowers #floraldesign #floraldesigner

A slightly wild and bright bouquet for a gorgeous lady in her favourite palette of colours, which was delivered a few weeks back. According to her daughters, our lovely recipient was overwhelmed by her gift and cried in the kitchen! I love to hear that our flowers bring such happiness.

Missing my little shop, all empty and locked up! But we’re busy bees behind the scenes, FaceTime consultations and quotes with mood boards going off to future couples 😊@floral-explosion #weddings #kentflorist #weddingflorist #londonflorist #essexflorist #sussexflorist #surreyflorist #notgivingup!

The last job we did before the industry and the country shut down. We are all starting to appreciate the luxury of the old normal. I hope one day soon to be elbow deep in stems and frantically trying to get a job finished in time 💐🍃💐. For now, I'm happy appreciating the stems growing in my garden and on my daily exercise. That will do me fine for the time being.👍 . . . #localbusiness #selfemployedflorist #supportlocal #sussexflorist #sussexflorists #flowerbouquet #floristatwork #behindthescenes #lastjob #whatnext #workingfromhome #burgesshill #burgesshillflorist

Another 4 hour stint levelling the lottie! I am very blessed to have this space 🙏❤ #thenaturalflorist #weddingflorist #sussexflorist #allotmentlife #fuckcorona #pma #positivevibes #teamwork

This week I ordered a letterbox delivery from Bloom & Wild in the name of research. The flowers are yet to open fully but think they look more interesting like this #traineeflorist #bloomandwild #sussexflorist

Blousy dusky pink setting the scene 🌸...

Hello! Dreaming of fluffy sweet peas is high on my agenda for today - can I fill my whole days with it? I think it’s in fact possible. I’ll do my best! _______ _________ #sweetpea #summerweddingflowers #summerweddinginspiration #summerwedding #floralinspiration #bridesmaidsbouquet #bouquet #weddingbouquet #sweetpeabouquet #sussexflorist #stayhome #flowersandotherstories #floral #floristsofinstagram #flowersofinstagram #weddinginspiration #underthefloralspell

Spending alot of time in the garden at the moment! Lots to do to get the garden ready for the summer. My private studio build project has had to go on hold as we cant get hold of concrete due to lockdown! Who else is frustrated they cant make progress!!? Dont let the frustration beat you up, sometimes we all need a break from going 100miles an hour!! 💖 stay safe.

I hope everyone is well and have got through week one ok. I’m busy rescheduling weddings and events. Feel free to email me if I can help with your planning. Much love to all 💓 #weddingflowers #sussexflorist #kentflorist

Flicking through some of the last pics I took before the world ground to a halt. Already feeling nostalgic for times past but human resilience and creativity always prevails... Still taking bookings and working on jobs from home, it's keeping me sane so do contact me if you have any questions!

Last of my mother's day flowers - used these lovely @villeroyboch green glass vases and recut the stems, added some more eucalyptus (last of @irishgreenguys for a while sadly) and now to enjoy them for a few more days! #sussexflorist #strangetimes #flowerarranging #villeroyboch @thesussexflowerschool missing you all! 😁 😉 Xx

Not been able to post the last few days , as I’ve been having too much fun with this little pickle all weekend - were so lucky we are able to see our beautiful grandson as I know many older grandparents are unable to. It must be a very lonely time for them even tho there’s FaceTime, there’s nothing like a big cuddle with your loved ones. . . Photos make wonderful memories and keepsakes and I’m so thankful to @jothornephotography for this family portrait session we did a few months ago to have some delightful photos to keep and send to family members we can’t see. . . The stunning floral backdrop was created at one of my Wedding flower workshops with @mayasfloristry and @spring_nettle If you would like me to send you the info for all my flower workshops and how to book them then email me katelangdale@hotmail.com or Dm me @katelangdaleflorist . . I will be back up and teaching as soon as we are through the other side of this lockdown and will also be doing 1-1s with social distancing in my workshop. (this is something that will be probably required when first allowed back to work.) Also I will be starting my Wild at Heart forage flower walks and wreathmaking workshops which take place outdoors. ( so perfect for a small group even with social distancing) . . You can buy gift vouchers for all my floral workshops and redeem them for a time that suits us both. So do get in touch if you’ve been thinking of trying or improving some floristry skills. . . #familyportrait #grandson #familytime #makingmemories #flowersandfamily #nannylove #floralbackdrop #flowershower #flowerworkshop #floristryworkshops #learnfloristry #giftvouchersavailable #katelangdaleflorist #underthefloralspell #workshopsatkatelangdaleflorist #brightonfloristryworkshops #brightonflowerschool #sussexflorist #alliseeispretty #wreathmakingworkshops #somethingtolookforwardto #supportsmallbusiness #localartist #floralteaching #flowerpower #floraldesigner #flowerinstallation #flowerphotobooth

There is always light at the end of the tunnel , stay positive and put this time to good use by planning a stronger , brighter , kinder future. I miss my co workers and my customers, my suppliers too and all the random acquaintances who I now realise are a vital part of my very fabric. I won’t take anything for granted again. If you do one thing today make it positive. Read about the good stories , the lives saved , the rejuvenation of the earth or just a simple act of kindness. #bekind #lightattheendofthetunnel #springtime #spreadthelove #gobotanica #gobogirlsarethebest #bespokeflorist #sussexflorist

I noticed on my walk early yesterday morning that all the pretty magnolia blossoms are coming to life, felt inspired to make my own.

Finally, british summertime is here!! 🌷 Clocks have sprung forward and we are busy getting the garden in ship shape ready for the summer! Here is a image to brighten your day. I hope you are all safe and well, lots of love 💖

The perfect way to utilise a few leftover flowers, some spare time and daughters home for an indefinitely extended stay - a bright and bohemian flower crown to celebrate the beginning of British Summertime. It will certainly be a very different summer to one which we were perhaps envisioning - but we can still take the little glints of silver lining where we find them. Happy Sunday, stay home, stay safe and above all, be kind. Sharing the floral love
