ROMANTIC, RUSTIC FLORAL DESIGNS, CREATED IN THE HEART OF NEWRY MOURNE & DISTRICT.
FLORALS FOR WEDDINGS, EVENTS AND EVERYDAY JOY, FROM OUR SHOP ON SUGAR ISLAND IN NEWRY.
George Preston Florist is Newry's longest established local florist providing all your floral needs. Having original been opened by George (Sr) & Elizabeth Preston back in the 50s/60s, we are a family run business of over 60 years based on Sugar Island, Newry. After many highly successful and award winning years under my parents, George (Jr) & Bernie Preston, the shop is now in the third generation of management with myself, Karen Sherwin.
Having originally trained as a chef, my love for the shop, flowers and plants came from helping out during busy periods so after deciding to change career and train as a florist. From that point I never looked back going on to achieve many accolades, representing myself, the shop and Ireland at international floristry competitions with my proudest moment being awarded an RHS Chelsea Medal in floristry.
There’s no denying the beauty of flowers and quite frankly, we’re obsessed! Something reflected in the charm of our award-winning boutique shop, located in the bustling Newry City centre.
Whether you are looking for the perfect wedding flowers, a personal sympathy arrangement, or simply a way to make someone’s day special – our approach is this: to bring the beauty of the outside world in. Not only are we a florist, bursting with unusual seasonal blooms from local growers & abroad, our flower shop is also full of carefully chosen & curated gifts from artisan suppliers – from beautiful old style Dutch ceramic pots, to Oxmantown Skincare, to Canella Candles – right down to the individual flowers on offer each day.
But if you can’t drop by then many of these can also be found on on our online store and our experienced staff are always happy to take a call and share their inspirational ideas.
We deliver our artisan bouquets locally but as a member of the Interflora network we can arrange delivery so no matter where you are nationally in the UK & Ireland and worldwide.
