Pumpkin and Pye – The Wedding Spotlight
Don’t you just adore those intricate bouquets!? I always adore the wedding bouquet, and Pumpkin and Pye just create such intricate and beautiful designs, whether they be made from flowers or buttons/beads/shells! I’ll let Natasha tell you more…
First things first, could you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do?
I’m Natasha, I own and run Pumpkin and Pye where I create stunning alternative and artificial bouquets and buttonholes for couples worldwide. I also run a fresh flower side of Pumpkin and Pye supplying fresh wedding flowers for couples across the South West.
What inspires you to push yourself creatively or further in business?
My travels and vintage pieces I find inspire my alternative bouquets, i’m always looking at and trying new techniques and traditional crafts from around world to try and incorporate into future projects and take my bouquets to the next level.
What does your daily routine look like?
I work from a home studio in my house in Devon, each morning i’ll be showered dressed and at work by 8.30am, I think its important to have routine. I start my morning with emails and social media and then ordering of any supplies I need before moving on to my work for the day finishing my working day around 8pm or later in peak seasons.
What’s your favourite memory from working in this field so far?
Selling my first bouquet 4 years ago, it went to the loveliest bride in America who sent me photos from her wedding, I’ve never been more proud.
