Flowers, beautiful flowers...

for all occasions

A bouquet from The Painted Florist is not just another bouquet. It's a handcrafted gesture and the perfect way to express your feelings, whatever the occasion.

It's not just weddings - we also design and create hand tied bouquets and arrangements, as well as sympathy tributes. 

We cover the North East of England.

My work is influenced by romance; blousey and whimsical, it features old fashioned English roses, peonies and hydrangea mixed with succulents, abundant foliages and unusual textures that generally reflect the current fashion of floral designs, yet are unique to you in the way I combine materials.

I take great care in sourcing materials. I buy British where possible, Roses are scented, long lasting and complemented with seasonal foliages.

My vision is that the true art of floral design is found through high quality flowers and superior design techniques.  I take inspiration from feelings, scents and every creation has a story behind it. Using natural and local materials in creative ways, I incorporate flowers that represent the best of the season to provide you with the flowers and memories to last a lifetime.


I will make your wedding day beautiful.

Weddings are my main focus so I keep up with trends as well as traditions, but the fun part is finding ways to help you meld the two to create your perfect wedding look.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with some lovely couples over the last year and am already taking bookings into 2019/2020 and beyond!

I take great joy in the creative process and would love to talk with you about your wedding floral dreams.

I consider it an honour to be chosen to play a role in your wedding day - why not check availability for your date and book in for a no obligation consultation?

I work predominantly with fresh flowers and foliage. Although I have combined fresh and exquisitely crafted silks to great effect.

I only use the finest quality Dutch roses and foliage comes from the superb Irish Green Guys - their foliage really is something else!

Our flowers were unbelievable! We can’t thank Katie enough, she was fantastic! She made us feel special and individual and not just another number! With stunning attention to detail to every aspect of our wedding flowers, from all 7 bridesmaids, groomsmen, centrepieces, she’s truly amazing! Everyone absolutely LOVED my bouquet, it was huge and absolutely gorgeous! We are so happy and thankful and can’t wait to see our photographs! Cannot recommend Katie at The Painted Florist, enough!!!

From day one, Katie was invested in making our wedding day beautiful and ‘us’. On the day she did not disappoint! We had so many compliments, the table centre pieces in particular looked stunning. 100% recommend!

Katie was fantastic and the flowers for our wedding day were so lovely - I didn’t want to leave for our honeymoon and not get the chance to enjoy them - Katie suggested we give them to guests to take home and enjoy - a lovely idea and I was delighted to see that they were still beautiful when we returned 2 weeks later!
Katie was really easy to work with, very responsive and welcoming. I knew what I wanted but not the names of the various flowers, Katie was able to perfectly recreate my vision for the day. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katie at The Painted Florist to anyone - she was lovely and created amazing flowers.
