- The Shed
The Big Boss! Jim is always on hand at SP to make sure everything is under control in the petal shed an in the fields!
A keen engineer, Jim is always at hand fixing machinery and getting out and about on the tractor, however he also secretly loves working at the wedding shows and learning about all the latest colour trends!
Always on hand to help out no matter what the job is; supervising students in the fields, packing orders, making wheat sheaves or getting the team together for some yummy homemade cake!
Jess is always on the look out for new flowers to turn into pretty petal confetti.
Dawn is chief wheat sheaf maker here in 'the shed' and lovingly hand makes every sheaf that we send out.
Her favourite mix is named after her cat honey'b!
You can usually find Katie under a mass of paperwork which apparently is in order! Katie keeps the SP team in order and oversees harvest to ensure it all runs smoothly!
You can always find Bramble the dog close by!
Rose oversees everything that goes on in the petal shed and is always on hand to answer any queries and chat to all of the lovely brides and grooms to be.
She works round the clock to make sure the orders are perfectly packaged and sent out on time with the help of her office dog 'Scout'!
Emma is busy in the petal shed handling sales and on the phone giving brides-to-be tips and advice. During the summer months she's out in the fields overseeing the flower harvest.
She's got a soft spot for animals of all sizes and enjoys baking tasty cakes for the rest of the SP bunch.
Ashley takes care of the SP marketing, website and social media. She loves meeting wonderful brides-to-be out on the road at the wedding shows too.
She's a bit of a photography nut that loves Pantone things and has an ampersand in every room of her house!
Emma is the PR guru for SP! A top negotiator, Emma can talk for England. She's bright, bubbly and loves sitting down with a good cup of coffee checking up on all the latest magazine coverage of Shropshire Petals.
Emma is usually networking with other wedding suppliers, magazines or even TV crews to get the SP name out there!
Nicole takes care of all the accounts and most importantly the payroll for SP. When she's not sorting paperwork she loves to spend time with her family or watching the Formula 1!
Megan is the newest member of the SP team, she's full of ideas!
She's usually found writing blogs, taking photos, helping in the petal shed, or chatting to brides on the phone or at wedding shows.
The original dried flower expert! The other half of 'The Bubbs' Rose knows all when it comes to dried flowers. Often found hidden under a pile of raffia, Rose is the Queen of the wheat sheaf and always looks forward to harvest time when wheat is a plenty and she can put her creative skills to the test!
Between looking after the grandchildren, asking us 'how many orders today?', 'anything I can do?' and of course keeping Michael in line, she's an all-rounder and never stops!
"No idea is impossible!" One half of 'The Bubbs' Michael is the inventor of the outrageous ideas here at SP! We have three things we never say when it comes to ideas here at SP:
1. It can't be done
2. It probably can be done but it's not worth doing
3. Told you it was a good idea!
Shropshire Petals have been recognised by several awards, most recently at The British Wedding Awards 2018 (for the second year running.)
