If you’re after something different, something organic, something vintage for your wedding, then you want The Wilde Bunch. Working with the seasons and inspired by wild flora and natural fauna, everything they produce is locally sourced or Fairtrade.
Owner Claire Nicholson has worked in floral & event design for the last 25 years. She trained with the Royal Horticultural Society as well as with international florists in Holland and the UK. Based in a design studio (a very cool barn in Abbotts Leigh bursting with vintage chic), The Wilde Bunch are totally mobile across Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset & Gloucestershire. Not being shop-based allows them to offer you an entirely exclusive personal design service at very competitive prices.
The Wilde Bunch have transformed wedding venues from castles to barns and however grand or intimate your big day, they promise a unique tailor-made service with stunning flora and all without that 'exclusive' price tag.
This year has seen them move into styling and dressing venues too. It’s all part of producing the perfect vintage design to suit the wedding couple.
This year has seen them style teepees with pewter and metalware, stoneware and wood, all of which is fast replacing birdcages and teacups as people’s ideas about vintage grow. It’s all about the opulence; think green, think succulents, passionflowers and hand painted decorations. It’s also about the dramatic; think old iron candelabras and candles catching the light. The WildeBunch will take you beyond the vintage tea party to a decadent, beautifully dressed Downton Abbey dinner party look.
You’ll be able to see Claire’s fantastic creations at our Fair this year. She’ll create the featured display you first see as you walk in and the handheld bouquets you’ll see the models carrying will all be her design. She’ll have a table of gorgeous props and even more gorgeous greens for you but until then, check out her website or Facebook page and see some more of her wonderful designs.
