Our Story

Hello and welcome to our page, it really is lovely to meet you. Thanks for taking the time to read our story written by business owner, Becky. 

 

“I launched Watkin & Berry in September 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. Looking back, it was a pretty radical thing to do but sometimes you have to take a leap of faith & trust in God’s plan for your life.

 

I started my flowering  journey when I was just 14 years old. I was a ‘Saturday girl’ at  a local florist & this is where I fell in love with floristry. I then went on to university to study for a different career and went back to floristry a few years later. According to research, being a florist is one of the happiest jobs you can have- I can confirm that is true!

 

I trained at Moreton Morell college & gained a distinction qualification in Level 2 & 3 floristry. In 2019 I won a Rose Bowl Award for the standard of my floristry. I always struggle to show off my achievements but I hope this helps to reassure my brides!

 

People often ask me about the name of my business. I am proud to say it’s named after my family. The name was originally inspired by my great grandma,  Jane Watkin, who was a seamstress who set up her business after the war. 'Berry' is another family name & I think it sounds perfect for my brand.

 

Since I launched the business, things have grown from strength to strength and we are now on target for a bumper year of weddings in 2023. Every time an enquiry comes into my inbox I leap in the air! Running your own business is such a privilege & I love getting to know my customers. If you are looking for a wedding florist that is trustworthy & puts you at ease then look no further! I can’t wait to meet you.
