A SUFFOLK florist has been selected as one of the top 25 in the country for her beautiful wedding flowers.

Kaye Souter is one of four in the eastern region - and the only florist in Suffolk - to be listed in the prestigious Brides magazine.

The publication aimed to take the stress out of the big day by selecting the finest florists around the UK.

Emily Murray, assistant editor, compiled the list, which will be published in the January-February 2007 edition, based on the florists' “unique and luxurious displays”.

The 35-year-old set up her own business six years ago and the main part of her work is weddings, offering a personalised service and flowers that echo their surroundings, whether it be contemporary designs or rustic arrangements.

She said: “It is quite exciting to be recognised and it is a great achievement. It is a great accolade to be featured in Brides after all the hours of hard work and effort.”

The January - February issue of Brides is out on Monday .
