About Lavender & Blackberry

Dear Bride and Groom,

I am truly passionate about creating beautiful wedding flowers for your special day. We will take time to listen to your ideas and make them into reality. I specialise in using seasonal flowers and foliages in a rustic, natural way. I am a fully qualified and trained florist.

Since working at Selwyn Davidson, where I did a large volume of weddings at different venues across Kent. I then decided upon a career break to carry on raising my 3 children / monsters.

I have worked at a number of top wedding and contract florists in London – for example:

  • Dellers of Wimbledon
  • Flowers by Mulberry, Dulwich
  • Bill and Bens / Moyses Stevens, London
  • Selwyn Davidson, Canterbury

I’ve worked for “You and Your Wedding” magazine, as well as, created flower displays at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Jennie Barham
