About us Sylvestrium is a small cut flower garden and floral design studio based in Tunbridge Wells. Inspired by the changing seasons, we create wild, naturalistic floral designs for weddings, events, editorial styling or simply for the home.
Working with the ever changing seasons is central to our creative process and inspires all of our floral work. In growing our own flowers and foliage we can ensure that, throughout the seasons, we have an abundance of beautiful, scented blooms the like of which you are unlikely to find at a conventional flower market. Where necessity dictates, we also work with other carefully selected British growers to ensure that our flowers are as locally sourced as possible.
Sustainability is very important to us here at Sylvestrium. We choose not to use floral foam in any of our arrangements or use unnecessary plastic packaging. By working in harmony with the natural world and employing only environmentally responsible growing practices, it provides us not only with a greater connection to the land and the flowers we grow, but also ensures that we tread as softly as possible on our environment.

Weddings and Events
Whether you're planning your wedding day or a simple party at home, we're on hand to create beautiful bespoke florals to make sure your event is extra special.
Our growing season runs from mid march until the first frosts (usually mid November), but if you are planning a winter wedding and like the sound of evergreens, dried flowers, seedheads etc., then please get in touch. We can still create something magical for you.
Bespoke wedding service:
We will work collaboratively with you to ensure that your wedding flowers are as beautiful as they can be and as unique as you are. Designed to your chosen colour palette, we let the seasons provide the inspiration for your wedding florals. From delicate boutonnières to magnificent floral arches and aisle meadows, we have all of your floral requirements covered.
Vicky and Faye will be on hand throughout the design process. From the initial face-to-face consultation, to growing the speciality blooms and handing over the bridal bouquet, we will make sure that every last detail is taken care of to bring your floral dreams to life.
A minimum spend applies. Please contact us below for more information.
Intimate wedding package:
For those on a smaller budget but who still want beautiful, seasonal flowers for their big day, we offer an intimate wedding package. We will discuss your requirements either over the phone or via email and will create your bridal party flowers in your chosen colour palette.
This package includes:
One bridal bouquet
Two bridesmaid's bouquets
One top table centrepiece
Total: £450 (includes local delivery)
Fancy getting creative? We can supply buckets of freshly cut flowers and foliage for you to style your own wedding florals. Buckets start at £50 each and to give you an idea of volume, one bucket would be more than enough to create a bridal bouquet and a bridesmaid posy.
If you need more inspiration, why not join us for a wedding flowers workshop? We will show you simple but effective techniques to help you realise your own floral vision.
