We are, quite frankly, obsessed by flowers and love pulling together incredible arrangements and bouquets that flaunt their natural beauty. Passionate about our trade and dedicated to outstanding customer service, you can rely on The Flower Lounge to deliver something beautiful, fresh and creative, no matter what the occasion.
Having grown up in a horticultural family, Siân has always been surrounded by plants and flowers and inherited her green fingers and thumbs. Her artistic flair and attention to detail encapsulates what The Flower Lounge is all about.
Siân is always pushing for creative excellence, which has given her membership to the coveted Chapel Designers, won her multiple industry awards and enabled her to achieve a place on the expert panel for the Good Florist Guide and director role with the British Florist Association. Still pinching herself that the shop is now 7 years old, Siân loves getting hands on and struggles to park behind a computer, preferring to be up front and snipping! You’ll often find her chatting away to customers, fascinated by the emotional connection people have with flowers and scent. Her favourite flower is a Hydrangea.
Our talented freelance florist and flower demonstrator, Mark is the only member of the team to say winter is his favourite season as it gives him a chance to use his favourite flower; the Amaryllis. He likes new challenges, which explains why as well as being a florist he is also a qualified wig-maker!
Having worked for many years in retail, his skills are invaluable to the shop, although it can be hard to keep him inside as he loves the experience of delivering flowers and seeing the look of joy on people’s faces! His favourite bouquet is the vintage hand-tie because it always brings ‘oohs’ and ‘aahhs’ when he delivers them
Charlie (Bear) is the Flower Lounge’s black Labrador. Charlie’s favourite season is autumn – lots of leaves and sticks to explore - and his favourite job is showing customers his blanket.
He doesn't get paid in money but in cuddles, tickles and toys.
There’s no denying the beauty of flowers and quite frankly, we’re obsessed, something reflected in the charm of our boutique shop – The Flower Lounge.
The Flower Lounge is located in Didsbury, South Manchester and was the brainchild of Siân Wild. After 10 years working as a florist and with events teams across the UK, she was determined to set up a floristry business that represented creativity, innovation and passion; delivered with outstanding customer service.
7 years on and Siân and her team’s commitment to quality and service remains unwavered. Always pushing for creative excellence, they are members of the esteemed Chapel Designers and have been recognised by leading industry figures, most recently with The Wedding Industry Awards, where The Flower Lounge won 'Wedding Florist of the Year 2017.
The Flower Lounge is a delight to visit, full of bountiful blooms, stunning arrangements and complementary gifts from artisan suppliers. But if you can’t drop by then many of these can also be found on the website and our experienced staff are always happy to take a call and share their inspirational ideas. Whether a thoughtful gift, a stunning wedding bouquet, heartfelt sympathy arrangement or well-deserved treat for yourself, you’ll get the same level of dedication, creativity and attention to detail.
The Flower Lounge can deliver all over Manchester, Cheshire and beyond. We will happily arrange wedding and funeral flower consultations outside these hours but by appointment.
We are very proud to have won the Wedding Industry Award’s North West Wedding Florist of the Year three times running! And now, we've been awarded the national Wedding Florist of the Year 2017.
This award in particular means a lot to us, as it’s voted for by the brides and grooms themselves. We were overwhelmed to learn that so many couples we’d had the pleasure of working with had nominated and taken the time to vote for us. This alone is a huge honour!
We always make it our priority to build close relationships with our clients, as it’s this understanding and bond which helps to make the whole wedding floristry experience so memorable. It’s lovely to see that our brides and grooms agree...
"From our first meeting, Sian was friendly, welcoming and so helpful in bringing our vision for what we wanted to life. No questions were too silly and she spent so much time with me looking at different options and possible designs. Her flair and creativity are exceptional and I was blown away on my wedding day with how beautiful all of the flowers were. We received so many positive comments on the day and from people who have seen our photos since the wedding because of how stunning they were." - Lorraine and Chris Mann, Didsbury House Hotel
"If I could give 100 for everything, I would! Siân was an absolute pleasure to work with, she interpreted our brief to perfection surpassing our expectations. The quality of the flowers on the day was impeccable and I could not have asked for any more." - Lianne and Andrew Reid, Colshaw Hall
"I never thought it would be seeing my wedding bouquet on the morning of my wedding that would make me cry. It was absolutely stunning and better than I could ever imagined! Siân listened to everything I wanted, used her brilliant knowledge and designed something incredible." - Vicky and Ford Wilding, Tipi wedding at Common Barn Farm
