A Manchester florist has been crowned the UK's number one wedding florist at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The Flower Lounge in Didsbury took the honour at the Wedding Industry Awards held at Café de Paris in London’s West End.

The Awards seek to recognise and reward excellence within the UK wedding industry and after winning the title of North West Florist of the Year in late 2016, the team at The Flower Lounge went on to claim the title of the country’s best wedding florist.

The judging panel praised owner Sian Wild's artistic flair and attention to detail.

“This award is a huge achievement for us and really helps us to put florists north of the M25 on the map.

We have been designing beautiful and innovative creations from our shop in Didsbury for the last 7 years and have worked with some fantastic brides and grooms.

"I was overwhelmed to learn that over 60 couples nominated and took the time to vote for us. This makes the award all the more special.”
