Hello my name is Donna Hartley-Redfearn, I’m the creative behind The Unconventional Florist. The business originally launched in 2011, formally known as The Timeless Table. Jump forward to 2018 and over 500 weddings designed and executed flawlessly……so why change!
After working with several couples on eco friendly weddings in 2017/18 I discovered ‘Green Weddings’. I ve always been frustrated with the amount of waste within the industry from packaging, air miles and so much in-between …… step one – paperless administration, step two – the reduction of packaging and so the simple changes continued and continues today.
Over the past 18 months I have collaborated, networked and connected with expert environmentalists, researched alternative methods of packaging and sourced alternative methods of recycling of green waste. This is still a work in progress, however the sole aim is to provide high-end wild and foraged styling with the ethos on sustainability.
I am passionate about the wedding industry and strive to raise the standards within the UK wedding industry… The Unconventional Florist is part of the North East Wedding Planners group. Together my work has featured in many beautiful wedding blogs (Love my dress, Whimsical Weddings, Rock my Wedding, Belle Bridal, Unveiled….) and achieved international accreditation and recognition to my commitment to customer service. I feel extremely honoured and proud of all the awards and weddings featured, without the most amazing modern couples none of it would have been possible.
