WILD BLOOM DESIGN- THE HIDDEN GEM FLORAL ARTIST
Updated: Sep 19, 2019
"Foraged Serenity & Beauty"
Expressive, seasonal and sustainable Floral Artistry has blossomed in Chapel Allerton.
It was an absolute joy to join Monika Harris - the Head Creator and free spirit of Wild Bloom Design - on a fantastic photo shoot in September. We followed the Wild Bloom team during a day of creative floral production, set in the perfect vintage scenery location; Oakwell Hall Country Park - West Yorkshire.
Wild Bloom Design's Story & Ethos
Wild Bloom Design founded in 2019 is a unique Floral Artistic concept, focussing on designing and producing enchanting floristry fit for any glamourous wedding, event or dazzling room centre-piece.
Monika and her team encapsulate design and focus around the ever-changing seasons to bring out the natural foliage & particular hue of that period, including flora perfectly preserved from the previous growing season. In doing so, Wild Bloom Design produce incredible pallets of colour and sculptures made from a mix of fresh and dried flowers.
Resembling an untouched forest path or blossoming meadow, all of their end creations have an air of splendour and finesse radiating from them.
Using techniques stemming back to 2008, through experience in floral college and her botanic mentors, over the years Monika's bespoke approach has been ignited into what can only be described as free flowing, sustainability focussed and conceptually rare. Every creation can be tailored to meet clients designs, budgets and artistic desires - with the Wild Bloom ethos always shining through.
Monika's passion takes her back to her early roots as a child and memories of countryside living, playing and foraging in the woods and streams - embracing nature's biggest gift; she's taken this passion and love for home grown and made it in to a fantastic and exquisite local business venture.
Based in the centre of Chapel Allerton, Monika & Husband Joe make an absolute dream team - as Joe is the Director of his own local Landscaping business, the green fingered pairing is the ideal match complimenting the creative duo's goals and passions.
We loved to hear that Joe ensures no unnecessary wastage occurs during his landscaping escapades by passing on any recyclable items to go in to producing the unique items created through Wild Bloom - how quirky is that!?
Joe & Monika pride themselves on their home grown herbaceous plants and greenery, as well as having an established local supply chain all based in Yorkshire, including core supplier Anna bell from Pudsey who has links to the UK's well known flower
