Erica has made flowers her life’s work, winning the hearts of both clients and peers with her natural talent for fabulous floristy.
Eight times a medalist at Chelsea Flower Show, she has also represented the North East region for Interflora at national competition level
Erica opened her first shop in 1986, moving to the Grove Promenade in Ilkely in 2000 and later larger premises in Ben Rhydding before a health scare necessitated a break from the business in 2007.
After working as a freelancer for 5 years, Erica set up a studio in Keighley in 2012 specialising in weddings and events before heading back to Ilkley, opening her boutique florist, Erica Berry Flowers in December 2014.
Professional florist Libby Ayrton has worked alongside Erica for some years and brings her own younger twist to the business. Together we offer a warm and inspirational team to work with, combining years of expertise with the skill to help you express yourself in the emotive language of flowers.
Our emphasis is on individual and creative designs. We love making full use of the variations that the changing seasons bring, so whilst we always offer classic favourites such as roses and lilies, we also promise an ever-changing selection of seasonal as well as unusual flowers.
Using only the best quality blooms from trusted suppliers, most of our flowers arrive direct from Holland. Where possible we source from selected specialist British growers and occasionally even from our own gardens, to ensure the best quality, choice and freshness.
We are always looking for new varieties and colours to add interest and variation to our work, keeping us at the forefront of floristry design and promising you that wow factor for your displays.
We hope you will come to meet us in person at our lovely shop just off the main street in Ilkley where we can help you with all your floristry and inspirational gift ideas. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01943 968118 to find out more.
