About Vanilla Blue Flowers - Colchester and Wivenhoes Independent Florist


Starting my florist career in a family flower shop, at the tender age of 14 as a Saturday girl, I knew I wanted to be a florist, 25 years later and I still love my job!

Working in Floristry is an amazing opportunity to be apart of all life’s moments, from the beginning, celebrating the precious arrivals, to creating fabulous florals for your wedding day and to the end, personalising your last goodbye for dear friends and loved ones, all these moments are why I love being a florist.

My aim is to create simple and beautiful flowers you will remember. With an abundance of fresh seasonal flowers and a love for huge hydrangeas we try to give something different every time.

After 2020 we had to rethink the business, in order to survive such trying times we moved to a workshop we had built at home, and haven’t looked back! The support from our regular and new customers alike, has been immense and we stormed through the pandemic, and survived!
It has infact worked so well we are staying put!
We are a small family business so working from home works perfectly for us and our Alaskan Malamute Bella (whom many of you have met!)

If you would like to call past the workshop to discuss your flower needs please give us a call before hand so we can make sure we are swept up ready for your arrival :-)

We provide same-day flower delivery to Colchester and surrounding areas, if you order online by 12pm if you have any special requests, just give me a call.

What people are saying...

Becky is a very talented floral designer. Her designs are contemporary and modern, yet have a classical touch - emphasising on her vast experience.
My wedding bouquet and decor flowers were stunning and her occasional gift bouquets, no matter the budget, were always put together so beautifully.
I would recommend her over and over again!

If you want to order flowers and you want the best service ever! Then this is the shop. From start to finish of the ordering process, to getting a call to talk about the flowers and being delivered before lunch time. Amazing!! Very pleasant, very professional and the flowers were simply beautiful. Will not shop anywhere else now for flowers. Thank you
