Sonning Flowers wins Wedding Florist of the Year

Local independent florist, Sonning Flowers, has scooped up the much-sought-after Wedding Florist of the Year award at this year’s prestigious National Wedding Industry Awards.

This news comes after the Berkshire-based florist, a member of the prestigious Good Florist Guide, was crowned top of its class in the regional heat, taking home Wedding Florist of the Year for the South Central of England at the end of January 2022, before heading to the National final in London.

Competition was stiff, with the winners of regional heats in Yorkshire & North East, North West, West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, South East and South West all competing for the coveted National winner’s trophy – only for Sonning Flower’s to take home the win.

Heather Reilly, owner of Sonning Flowers, said: “We are absolutely delighted and just can't believe it! It’s the icing on the cake after winning Best Florist in Berkshire at the Muddy Stilettos Awards for 2021. We never dreamed of winning another award six months later.

“A huge thank you to all our wonderful wedding couples who voted for us and provided generous and incredible feedback about their wedding flowers and service we provided. It's been a whirlwind for our whole industry, and the support we have received has been truly amazing.”

Feedback from voters applauded Sonning Flowers’ “flexibility”, “creativity”, “faultless communication”, “expert knowledge” and “exemplary customer service”.

Heather concluded: “I personally also need to say a huge thank you to the Sonning Flowers team. We’ve had back-to-back weddings since Covid-19 restrictions were lifted and my small team of seven have worked incredibly hard during a wedding season like no other. Winning three renowned awards in the last six months is a great kick-start to 2022, and we look forward to the wonderful weddings we have coming up. I always knew Sonning Flowers was award winning, and this is the true recognition the team deserves!”
