- Wedding and Event Florist
Susanne P. Loweth
Hello and thank you for stopping by! Let me introduce myself and tell you a bit about Beamsley Blooms.
My name Susanne Loweth and I live with my family in a cottage in the village of Beamsley near Bolton Abbey in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
I was born in India to Danish parents and grew up in Denmark. In the eighties I moved to Britain to study zoology at university.
After enjoying a career in behavioural and ecological research in the UK, France and Uganda for about ten years, I left academia to settle down and start a family in the Yorkshire Dales.
Having a large garden for the first time, I saw the opportunity to combine my love for flowers and gardening with being a mother. I therefore re-trained as a florist and have not regretted it for one moment. I just love my job!
Most of the flowers I use are grown in my cutting garden. These include tulips, hellebores, garden roses, peonies, hydrangeas, sweet peas, cosmos, aquilegia, dahlias and herbs.
What I don’t grow myself, I source from other local flower growers, many of which belong to Flowers from the Farm, a country-wide group of flower growers supplying a wide range of British flowers. Only as a last resort do I buy imported flowers.
In addition to the flowers, you can also hire simple, elegant and classical vases, punch bowls, urns, milk churns, candlesticks and candelabra from me to complete the look. Take a look at the hire section for further details.
If you are getting married or having a celebration in this area* and you like my style, do get in touch! I’d love to discuss your ideas and requirements, be they your dream bridal bouquet or grand venue flowers.
I look forward to hearing from you!
