Flowers make us happy, ridiculously, deliriously happy. The heady perfume of lilacs and hyacinths intoxicate us. Blousy garden roses send us into a giddy delight. If you feel so strongly about anything you work with, it's not work, it's an honour and you are one of the lucky few who really adores what they do. We are.
A close second on our list is weddings, we love the details, the contagious excitement of couples, the personality reflected in every choice they make. It is a collage of two people coming together in one of the most important days of their lives. It is always an utter privilege to be asked to be involved in such a special day.
Le Coeur Sauvage is the floral baby of Faith Brennan. Faith, her husband and two young boys moved to France in 2013 from Ireland after falling in love with the lifestyle, architecture and landscape (the weather didn't hurt either).
With both a background of horticulture and landscape design, plants and flowers have always been close to heart and she chose a well known floristry teacher from the UK, a student of Constance Spry to begin her floristry career.
Having worked with bespoke floral design teams in Dublin and extensive training, the next step was to start Le Coeur Sauvage, which has grown immensely since arriving in France.
We love the variety of weddings in France, from rustic marquee garden weddings to glamourous cliff top chateaus, each couples flower choice should reflect their location amongst other things. We have worked with some of the most beautiful venues in France as well as their planners. We know how it works.
We work on a one on one basis with our couples, by email, Skype, phone or face to face and we ask a lot of questions, seemingly unimportant at the time but when the details line up on the day it becomes clear. Whatever your style, your colours or budget, we will work for you to get you what you want. Wedding florists are a strange mix of florist, carpenter, engineer and magician so whatever your request, just ask.
Le Coeur Sauvage can provide all aspects of wedding flowers, from romantic ceremony arches adorned with roses and hydrangeas to textural bohemian flower crowns and everything in between. We will give advice on seasonal flowers, colour palates and bouquet styles to suit your dress and are on hand on the big day to make sure everything is picture perfect.
