Laura Stephen Floral Designer


Peony and Gold, led by Laura Stephens, provide luxury floral design, specialising in wedding flowers across Durham, Northumberland, Newcastle, Gateshead and Teeside. Based near Hexham, our florist studio specialises in producing truly beautiful, aspirational wedding flowers as well as floral designs for events, shoots and gifts throughout the North East.

At the heart of our studio we have a passion for all things beautiful and our designs have a creative and contemporary edge. We aim to be all inclusive and put the same passion into our small, intimate weddings as we do to our grand, luxurious affairs and therefore we have created two wedding flower packages so you can choose your flowers, your way.

As a local business we aim to locally source as many of our products as possible and we support other local enterprises where we can. We have a wonderful relationship with other wedding industry professionals from cake makers to photographers, venues to stationers.

Peony and Gold are proud to have developed a reputation for quality, long-lasting blooms from our wonderful wholesalers and designs that have "double-tap Insta appeal" according to Karen Bell at Belle Bridal Magazine. We are so proud to have been featured in Belle Bridal Magazine North East. We have also recently been nominated for a North of England Wedding Award for Outstanding Customer Service from The Wedding Guide UK. The feedback from the brides voting for us has been phenomenal.

Laura truly believes that if you love your job, you'll never have to work another day in your life. This has certainly been the case with Peony and Gold.
