Flowers with passion...
Is run by professional award-winning floral designer Sara Barrow. Sara can provide flowers for all occasions – bouquets, weddings, funerals, events and contract work. Sara is absolutely passionate about flowers and is highly skilled in both traditional and contemporary floral design.
The shop on Inglewhite Road is now officially recognised as one of the best shops in the country having been accepted into The Good Florist Guide. The GFG is the gold standard of floristry and the only merit-based guide to the finest florists in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Acknowledged as the ‘little black book’ of the very best British and Irish florists.
In 2017 we were awarded runner-up in the best Creative Business in the Ribble Valley and were also finalists in the best Artisan Business.
Sara couldn't manage the business alone. Her team is known as Team Passion! There is husband Carl (aka Flower Boy!). He is in charge of marketing, front of house, deliveries and anything that doesn't involve creating with flowers. He leaves that to Sara and Emma Smith. Sara is trained to level 5 and received a distinction in her Foundation Degrees in Commercial Floral Design. Emma is trained to level 4, again with a distinction, but has years of experience in flower shops. Emma also had her own flower shop for three years. Our latest recruit is the lovely Jill Wade who is currently studying for her level 4 qualification at Myerscough College.
Flowers With Passion specialises in wedding flowers - see our wedding page for more information. But for many many more pictures, news and gossip follow Sara on Facebook or read her blog above. Just click on the links.

Flowers With Passion is set in the beautiful Lancashire countryside in the Ribble Valley and close to the Trough of Bowland.
As well as fresh, beautiful flowers, the team also work with silk flowers if you require a long lasting arrangement. Flowers With Passion can also provide all the floristry sundries you could wish for – oasis, wires, raffia, cellophane, tissue, containers, vases and much much more.
