Lydie Dalton provides beautiful, luxury wedding flowers and floral designs for special occasions throughout Surrey, Sussex and Kent. This is floral design with a little bit of “Je ne sais quoi” and an obsession for scented flowers!
Brought up in a family of fruit and flower growers in southern France, I have vivid memories of the most heavenly scents: the sweet summery smell of peaches in the family orchards, the autumnal smell of apples in wooden crates waiting to be taken to market, the myrrh tones of old French garden roses underneath which grew the fragrant blue spikes of Lavender. One of my most vivid memories is accompanying my grand-father to wholesale markets in his Citroen van at 5.00am as the sun was rising over the horizon. I still use the very same wooden crates bearing my family name that we took to market filled to the brim with fruits and flowers.
Moving to Paris and then to England meant that I followed a different career path, but still spending every free hour growing flowers, nurturing a passion for scented roses and falling in love with mid-summer English gardens. So, it must have been written in the stars that I would eventually return to my roots and go back to what is deeply engrained in me: nature and flowers.
My floral style combines quintessential English gardens with French elegance and chic. I use beautiful scented English and French roses profusely as well as an abundance of other scented flowers. Scent is so closely associated with emotions and memories. A scented wedding bouquet will truly enhance the memories of your beautiful day.
My approach is a personal and bespoke one. I have a passion for getting it right, for attention to detail and for showcasing every single bloom and stem of foliage at their very best. I will offer you a free consultation, and if you decide you would like me to create your stunning wedding flowers, I will also visit your venue with you, create your own mood board and suggest vases, vessels and urns you might like
Having married recently, I understand only too well the importance of having the confidence and peace of mind that your special day will be set off and enhanced by the most beautiful flowers.
Hope to hear from you very soon,
