    Welcome to The Flower House.

    Our flower shop has been trading here in Stamford for the past 34 years under the name Sue's Flower House up until April 2014 and although we are long established, we do not live in the past.

    We provide bouquets and arrangements from traditional, contemporary and designer styles - in fact anything you require we will make especially for you!

    We pride ourselves on top quality fresh flowers and a friendly helpful service.

The end of an era…

Having studied Graphic Design at college, I have always had an interest in photography and after graduating went onto study both GCSE and A Level Photography at evening classes. This was pre-digital and on turning 30 I invested in my first compact digital camera before a trip to New York. I loved photographing buildings, trees and flowers. The shapes and details in the natural world fascinated me and I wanted to do more…

It wasn’t long before I was asked to photograph my first wedding, a friend’s in 2005. I remember it was at the Haycock Hotel just before Christmas and although I know little of wedding photography, I loved it.

I went onto photograph weddings across the country and in Spain at some of the most beautiful venues and have met some lovely couples along the way, many of whom have become friends. I have shared so many ‘I do’s’ and precious moments with so many Bride’s and Groom’s over the years, all of which are special memories to this day. Its been an honour to have been chosen to photograph the most important day in a couple’s life together, to capture their day and memories for years to come.

Having joined the Bespoke course with Aspire in the Lake District, I developed and grew my business, together with some great photographers. It’s been an exciting journey, with its ups and downs… Although along the way I have stopped taking photographs for myself…

Last year I took a major leap in my career and bought an established florist shop in the centre of Stamford. It was my love of flowers and weddings that first attracted me and one year on we have a thriving florist business.

Its that combination of running a new business and wanting to go back to my photography roots that I have decided not to photograph weddings anymore. Though I have enjoyed the journey and loved all of my couples and weddings along the way, it has also given me vast knowledge and experience within the wedding industry that I can now take into my florist business.

I hope that you will continue to be there and share the future with me.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013 – ‘Sowing the Seeds of Change’ Homebase Garden by Adam Frost

I would like to share with you some images of Adam Frost’s Gold Medal winning garden, Sowing the Seeds of Change in association with the Alzheimer’s Society. A modern family garden that has been designed to provide a small family with a space to enjoy an everyday connection with their food and nature.

The garden provides a space where they can garden, relax and entertain whilst also providing a habitat to encourage wildlife, including a range of fruit, herbs, vegetables, shrubs and herbaceous perennials.

The world has changed much since our parents’ time – the children of today don’t seem to have the same freedom that their parents once took for granted. The garden aims to provide an environment to help a younger generation understand the natural world. It is a sustainable space, providing a wildlife corridor and a place where people can garden and cook together.
