"Flowers are incredibly special, the scent of honeysuckle is a special one for me, the scent and the way it rambles through the brambles and over a hedge instantly takes me back to long summer evenings in the garden with my family. Flowers have the ability to add something to an event that nothing else can and the scent of the flowers from your bridal bouquet will instantly take you back to your wedding day for many years to come."
I'm Stephanie and I am the owner of Verbena. I first started working with flowers back in 2010 when I started Stephanie Eastwood Floral Design. I started with a little flower stall at a local market where I sold my signature posies of seasonal flowers wrapped in brown paper. I loved my weekly customers who supported me from the start but when the market closed I knew I wanted to concentrate on events and particularly weddings.
I love how flowers finish off a wedding, how they can soften a venue and turn a blank canvas into a space which reflects the personality of you as the couple. Each and every one of my weddings is completely different and designed carefully to reflect how you would like your wedding to feel.
In 2017 I decided to re-brand the business to reflect the natural, romantic and elegant feel of my work and this is when Verbena began. I chose the name Verbena due to the gorgeous scent of Lemon Verbena and the natural romantic feel of the Verbena which grows in the cottage garden. For me scent is incredibly important and where ever possible I will incorporate scented flowers or foliage into your floral designs.
This is my story and I can't wait to hear yours.
