Hello! I’m Bethan (and that's me on my wedding day, I don't just casually wear a white dress and flower crown I promise!)
I run Bureau Botany from my workshop in a village called Farnhill, not far from Skipton on the North/West Yorkshire boundary not too far from Leeds, Manchester, Harrogate and York.
I did my degree in Graphic Design & Illustration, and whilst studying worked on a number of projects building large art installations for festivals and events. After I graduated I landed a job in fashion as a Visual Display Assistant at a luxury department store doing the interior store displays and window displays; and it was here that I first dipped my toes in to the world of floristry. We started making floral displays for the store and for events, and I was sold! I worked in both a florist shop and as a freelance wedding florist before deciding to set up on my own.
I have always felt styling and floristry go hand in hand, and I wanted to create a one-stop-shop for Northern brides to bring to life the day of their dreams, with each wedding as individual as the couple. My love of fashion, design and styling, as well as not offering the “same old” to my couples has always remained at the heart of Bureau Botany.
