The Wild Bunch
A small flower studio in Kilkenny, specialising in seasonal, garden-inspired floral design, Tina from The Wild Bunch grows all her own flowers which is a much more sustainable approach to wedding flowers.

Husband and wife Juliana and James are the team behind Anthesis Floral, and they grow their wedding flowers as part of an existing working farm.

The Flower Studio Dundalk
Caroline opened The Flower Studio 20 years ago, and has florists on her team with over 40 years experience, so there's certainly no lack of knowledge or skill within their team. They specialise in all types of floral displays from romantic flowers to decorative arrangements, and have a strong reputation in Dundalk for their wedding flowers in particular.
Floral Affairs only opened in Arklow earlier this year, but the newness of their shop doesn't represent their experience in creating beautiful, quirky floral arrangements for weddings and special events.

Whether you're just looking for bridal party bouquets or a full floral installation, they are experienced in creating even the most intricate arrangements, and the best bit is, they cater for weddings outside the Shelbourne, within the greater Dublin area.
