Full Description
Bureau Botany is run by Bethan; I come from a background in fashion, graphic design and of course floristry. Bureau Botany weddings are creative and luxurious in equal measure, and packed full of considered details - for example each of our bouquets or buttonholes are wrapped in hand plant-dyed silk or velvet ribbon. I love nothing more than working with you to realise your visions and designing your day so it is effortlessly stylish, unforgettably romantic- and most importantly a reflection of the two of you. No idea is too much or impossible, and it is my goal to make every one of my couples feel blown away by the world that I have created for their special day. ​ I know you don't have to compromise on beauty or style to be kind to the environment; year on year I am increasing the amount of British flowers used in my work, and all my work is completely floral foam free. I have also partnered with the One Tree Planted reforestation project, and for every couple that books with us, I will plant two trees in your names.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Bethan Howlett
Hello! I’m Bethan. I live with my husband Joe, my little boy Albie, and our troupe of rescue animals (dog Gus, cat Howard, and 3 chickens) in Yorkshire. My loves outside of flowering are: gardening and sitting in my garden with a beverage (hello coffee/craft beer/prosecco!), long dog walks, vegan cooking, listening to our vinyl collection or a good podcast, or watching one of my favourite tv shows.

Better than we could have imagined
Hi Bethan, Just a quick email to say thank you soooo much for our wedding flowers! Everything was even better than we could have imagined, the birch arch was gorgeous, and my flower crown lasted the whole night! Thanks again and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Made our vision come to life
Bethan created the most incredible bouquet for our wedding. Along with a gorgeous archway, bridesmaid bouquets, button holes and an amazing top table piece. She also provided us with loose flowers and foliage so we could create our own table decorations. Can’t thank her enough for making our vision come to life. Her natural style is beautiful and 3 days later the flowers are all sat around the house making the place loose and smell beautiful. Thank you Bethan xx

Talented florist with attention to every detail
Bethan did the flowers, hair flowers, venue dressing and even pumpkin carving to create the dream setting for our wedding. I couldn’t have chose someone more suited to our style. Talented florist with attention to every detail. Amazing - thank you.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I have worked on loads of fantastic weddings - I always enjoy an unusual brief and two that stick out in my mind are: - Getting to make the entire aisle look like a wild flower hedgerow growing out of the ground for an early summer wedding. It really did look amazing and made such an impact. - Carving by hand loads of pumpkins in to lanterns and tea-light holders for an Autumnal themed wedding. I have never been covered in so much pumpkin goo in my life but it was worth it for the look on the bride's face when she saw all those beautiful lanterns!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic for getting inspiration - but it can be tricky to know the actual cost of recreating something similar to those gorgeous images. If you have a set budget in mind don't be afraid of making this clear from the outset. This way I can make sure I'm not going to quote for things that will completely blow your budget, and I can only suggest things that will stick within your budget but still look gorgeous and match your vision for the day. There's nothing more disheartening than getting a quote back that is way over what you imagined!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The first step is to drop me an email so I can book you in for a consultation; either in-person at my Guiseley, Leeds-based studio or virtually via Zoom. We can get to know each other and talk over all your ideas and inspiration. I believe inspiration can come from anywhere so as well as your beautiful Pinterest board, I love to hear about how you met, your favourite films or books, your love of travelling, going for hikes, music, your pet dogs or going to festivals together (or whatever it is that makes you two unique and made you fall in love) and I can use all of this to bring your day to life. After our discussion, I will then get back to you with a detailed quote. This will include me hand delivering your bouquets to where you are getting ready, and for me and my fabulous team of freelancers transform your venue and return the following day to clear everything down again, so you can relax and enjoy spending your day with your loved ones. If you do decide to become a Bureau Botany couple; as well as your One Tree Planted trees, you will also receive a custom wedding pack with inspiration pictures, colour palettes and a mood-board of the flowers I am planning on using to help you visualise it all.Once I have received your deposit you will get your bespoke wedding pack from me; this includes breakdowns of everything we've discussed as well as mood-boards for styling and flower colour palettes to help you visualise everything. We will then have another consultation about 2 or 3 months before the date to go over everything in a bit more detail, check if anything's changed and firm up timings for the day. And between booking and final consultation I am of course contactable by email at any time if you have any questions or need some support. During the week leading up to your wedding you will have a team dedicated to making and creating everything for your day. On the day we will set everything up, wait and move anything from one location to another during the day if required, and we will return and clear everything down the next day so you can relax and enjoy your wedding knowing everything is taken care of.

What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?

Our imaginations really are the limit here. I love creating meaningful florals that have special significance to you, or unusual florals that aren't quite what people expect. I have had a bride request mini cabbages in her bouquet, and a bride that wanted a certain rose that reminded her of her grandma. I had a bride that just wanted out-of-the-ordinary flowers, and when I delivered her bouquets on the day I delighted at her bridesmaid's reaction that she had never seen flowers like them before. Mission accomplished!

What is the most romantic flower and why?

I absolutely love garden roses - they have a gorgeous vintage look to them as well as the most beautiful scent. You can get them in so many delicate colours, they are a firm favourite of mine.
