Tele Recommends: Northern Ireland's best wedding florists

We've consulted the experts to bring you the best Northern Ireland has to offer - the places, the food, the music, the craic.

Claire Leese is owner of Archive 12, Northern Ireland’s first private collection of original vintage wedding dresses, which are sourced from across the globe and restored by hand in her studio.

What is Tele Recommends?

Asked to name Northern Ireland's five best wedding florists, she recommends...

* Bloom Floral Artists, 10 Nevin's Row, Ballyskeagh Road, Drumbeg, 028 9062 4033

Julianne from Bloom created my own wedding flowers and offers a bespoke, one-to-one service. She even went out of her way to dye some blue roses for my bridal bouquet, which were fabulous.

* Comel Florist, Cregagh Road, Belfast, 028 9079 3691

Comel is my local florist -- they are very reasonably priced and are even open on a Sunday, which is unusual and really useful! They created the flowers for Archive 12's 2013 shoot and the results were gorgeous.

* Country Bumpkins, 132 Seacliff Road, Bangor, 028 9146 0060

Country Bumpkins have an amazing, vibrant array of flowers to choose from and bring ideas to life beautifully. The owner Norma is so creative and her beautiful bright pink house on the seafront is a vision.

* The Flower Room, 7 Donegall Square West, Belfast, 078 1008 1048

The Flower Room offers something a little different and unique, be it contemporary or vintage. They also have a great selection of props and table decorations.

* A Paper Rose www.apaperrose.co.uk

Now for something VERY different -- these are bouquets and flowers handmade in Belfast entirely from paper -- totally 'wow' and custom order.

Plus your wedding bouquet will last forever!
