Chrissy listened to our ideas and thoughts and went above and beyond to make them happen. If you need a florist for any special occasion then Chrissy couldn’t be more suited to make your dreams come true.

I Felt In Very Safe Hands With Chrissy
I used Bud & Flower for my wedding flowers in August 2021 and was absolutely delighted with them. The initial consultation call was really helpful to discuss what I had in mind and what would be possible with my budget etc. I felt in very safe hands with Chrissy and she really looked after me, despite a last minute change of venue. The flowers were exactly how I wanted them to look and they smelt gorgeous as well. Thank you Chrissy and team!

I Could Not Have Been Happier With Our Experience
Chrissy was truly amazing! She listened to everything I wanted and used her expertise to make it come to life. She was so helpful and although due to the pandemic we only communicated over phone and email until the big day I had complete trust in what she would create. Even when we changed what we wanted she would always do her best to accommodate us and make sure we could have the best flowers we wanted. Our venue came to life with the beautiful centre pieces, garland, and my bouquet and the button holes tied our whole colour scheme together. I could not have been happier with our experience and would defiantly recommend Chrissy, a truly lovely, professional and beautifully creative florist.

Amazing Service
Chrissie did my flowers for my wedding and they were so perfect! At first we were communicating in the midst of lockdown so i was finding it hard to get a florist who could see my vision but Chrissie was great, patient and welcoming of all my questions and inspiration. She delivered them to the venue and even snuck in a flower crown for me too! I can't thank her enough for her amazing service!
