About Sweet William

Nestled in the beautiful village of Headcorn, Sweet William has evolved from humble beginnings in 1999 trading from a traditional Colt House on the village high street. A lot has changed in Headcorn over the past 20 years, with a new precinct called Foreman’s Walk, which is where our sparkly new shop for Sweet William began.

Careful planning went into the shop’s look as we wanted a totally different experience for people to walk in to. With its famous water feature, stairs to nowhere and old Tuscan roof to say the least. We go far and wide to source exciting and unusual stock for the shop, which attracts a large following of customers who know they can rely on us for a gift.

Now with our new online shop it makes it even easier to treat that special someone to flowers anywhere in the world using E.Florist. However, we with our purple van deliver our flowers to local clientele. Sourced from the best growers in Holland and the UK (whenever possible) we stock a large range of seasonal plants and flowers.

With over 25 years experience in the floristry industry, having created 1000’s of wedding flowers and sadly funeral tributes too, we certainly know our stuff! Passion and love of flowers keeps us going.

Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.

"Tom and I wanted to extend our absolute gratitude for the amazing flowers that you did for our wedding. The bouquets were absolutely STUNNING and even better that I could have imagined...I think the blushing bride (I think is the name of it) is going down as my absolute favourite so I'll be ordering some when I'm back! The table displays were also out of this world and yet again surpassed anything I had in mind, everyone loved them and constantly commented on them!"

My bridal bouquet was perfect, the bridesmaids bouquets, the button holes, the centre pieces, everything was beyond perfection, and more that what I imagined!"


"I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so so so much for our stunning wedding flowers. All of the flowers were absolutely beautiful from the bouquets right through to the pew ends. The cake also looked absolutely perfect and the little bridesmaids loved their wands. Thank you once again."


"Thank you ever so much for the gorgeous flower arrangements for the tables at Chart Hills yesterday for William’s Baptism. So many people commented on how lovely they are and asked who did them! We are so pleased with them and they smell lovely too. Thank you so much for helping make William’s day extra special."
