Sarah Statham Simply by arrangement

Nestled on a Yorkshire hillside in the grey-green landscape that has inspired great writers is our home, workshop and garden.

It’s here that stories begin. Stories of those who come here, from nearby, or from far off corners of the world to learn how to ‘do the flowers’. Flowers that tell the story of time well spent – honing a craft; discovering a new pastime; or just falling in love with flowers. Welcome to a small corner of Yorkshire!

Growing flowers and nurturing others to grow their own stories in flowers is how this small but beautiful business works.

We love working with people who want to use our flowers to create a memorable backdrop to their special day.

We understand that flowers can transform a moment in time, and that being surrounded by flowers can be life enhancing.

Workshops, Classes & Retreats

From our small corner of Yorkshire, with a garden full of flowers and foliage, and with a familiar grey-green backdrop of fields and dry stone walls that have been “built to last”, I have taught many people my way of “doing the flowers” and encouraged them to pursue their own dreams and their own way with flowers.

Weddings & Events

Each wedding or event is as important to us as it is to you.
Wherever your venue, near or far, large or small, we hope that you choose us because you love our flowers. After that, the process is simple: you talk, we listen, we plan and we (that’s me and a small, trusted team) put heart and soul into the flowers that will make your day or your event truly memorable and unique.

Where to begin! I can’t thank you & your team enough.

The floristry was exceptional. I knew it would be, but every detail really was so incredible. The ‘tiny details’ along the table were such a hit, so many of our guests commented on them, saying how they’d never seen anything like that before.

It was our pleasure to have worked with you. It’s a shame I was only able to meet you briefly, although everywhere I looked, I saw you in your work.
