Jay Archer Floral Design: Visit Covent Garden Flower Market
It's no secret I'm a great fan of Jay Archer's work. Passionate about using seasonal and British flowers, she describes her style as natural and abundant; heavily textured free-form arrangements, tumbling with foliage, rose heads and sprawling jasmine.
Designing your wedding flowers, Jay will spend time with you at her workshop putting together your own personal mood board, exploring both floral inspiration and the props and vessels to bring your ideas to life. As if that's not treat enough, part of the service is a very special and complimentary visit to New Covent Garden Flower Market, where you have the chance to ‘meet your flowers’.
