We talk sustainable wedding flowers with Sylvia Pearson of Ecoblooms

Flowers are an integral part of your day, providing a focal point for photographs and something to bring together the colour scheme and styling. At Ecoblooms we create flowers from donated plastic bottles, providing an eco-friendly, sustainable and everlasting option. There's no need for vases of water and they're surprisingly light yet sturdy to move around. I can make flowers that are out of season and ones you wouldn't find in nature – rose gold anemones or rainbow roses perhaps?

My flowers can be ordered well in advance, so you can relax and get on with planning knowing your flowers are ready to go. They can withstand hot or cold days and there are no wilting flowers to throw away at the end of the night.

Not only are Ecoblooms a sustainable option, they also reduce costs by repurposing your florals throughout the day. For example, your bridesmaids' bouquets can become cake table decorations before being given as thank you gifts. Why not use your table decorations as favours too? You can collect jars or vases and I'll fill them with flowers to suit the theme, which can be taken home by your loved ones.
