Bespoke Floral Design for Weddings, Events and Corporate Functions based in Sussex.

A Bride with bouquet in front of a dressed mantel.

Hello and Welcome


My name is Christine Thornton: I am an Events & Wedding Florist and the owner of Bud and Flower.

Working from my studio in West Sussex I create bespoke floral designs for brides to be.

Gathering inspiration from nature, I use the most enchanting blooms, buds, seed heads and foliage to create modern and traditional floral designs that feel relaxed yet artfully curated. Every composition from buttonholes to bouquets, floral arches to aisles, are meticulously created with your special day in mind.


The colours, fragrances, and textures of the flowers that are chosen will play a significant part in reflecting who you are: Creating the perfect atmosphere that you’ve always dreamed about.

I travel to Country Homes, Barns, Marquees, or wherever my brief takes me in the  South East of England.

Kind Words

"Bud and Flower decorated the Wedding pagoda, tables, and marquee with the most beautiful flower arrangements. The pictures do not do them justice.

Chrissy was so knowledgeable and passionate. It was facinating to hear her talk to people about the seasons and how she grows many of the flowers herself."

Crockstead Fields

"Excellent Florist with amazingly creative ideas. Love how organic and bespoke the arrangements are.

Provenance of homegrown is a real winner for me too."

Chloe Hall

"Chrissy is an amazing Florist who goes out of her way to create the perfect arrangements for you. I own a Bride shop and the displays she makes for over my shop door are stunning.

She grows her own flowers too. She is the loveliest person and will go above and beyond for anyone.

If you need a Florist for any occasion then I highly recommend Chrissy from Bud and Flower."
