Shop Local ~ Mel Paget, Wild Wedding Florist at Briar Rose Designs

Shop Local Interviews with wedding businesses in Scotland by Fotomaki PhotographyWelcome to our ongoing project!

Where we showcase “portrait interviews” with local businesses in the Glasgow & Aberdeen areas.

“What on earth is a portrait interview?!” we hear you cry! Well, essentially we photograph and interview local business owners to learn about their livelihood and background, and share all of the juicy details with you.

You’ll get to learn behind-the-scenes stories of cool local traders, gain professional (and sometimes life) advice from people who have been there and done it, and you’ll also get to know a group of local creative entrepreneurs.

This time Sarah’s speaking with the floral queeeen Melanie Paget of Briar Rose Design!

Thank you to Mel for sitting down with me and taking the time to give us a behind the scenes look into her life and business. I’m sure you’ll agree that she is one talented mother-flowerer who can most certainly rock the florals out of your wedding day. What more can you ask for? Get on the blower to her pronto to give your wedding floral aesthetic dreams liiiife!

We also did a quick few Q&A’s for wedding couples!

What is your favourite wedding venue?

Blank canvas venues are great to let the flowers really shine. I like barns and anywhere with good light, nice and airy spaces! My picks would be Dalduff Farm (see our Dalduff Farm wedding feature here), Harelaw Farm and The Cow Shed.

What’s your favourite thing about weddings?

Any vendors you love and would recommend?

Flossy & Dossy wedding dresses, Rowanjoy wedding dresses, Sarah Brown jewellery, Three Tiers & Tea cakes, Three Sisters Bake catering (see our Three Sisters Bake wedding feature here), Something Brewed coffee bar.

Any advice for brides and grooms planning their wedding?

Try not to sweat the small stuff (so true!)

Any advice for small business owners?

Talk to people, make pals and have a good support network. (I can attest to this! Since this interview, Mel and I are total buds now!! ~ Sarah)

Any small business you’d like to give a shout out too?

The Cran cafe in Finnieston & Finding Neverland Nails also in Finnieston (Mel’s so trendy :P)
