Beautiful flowers!
Tom and I just wanted to send a note to say a big thank you for the beautiful flowers on our wedding day. All of the flowers honestly hit the theme we had discussed perfectly and we loved the additional wintery touches! Both the bridal bouquet and the registrar table lasting amazingly well and brought so many smiles to those family members who were unable to attend but managed to enjoy a piece of our day! Thank you again for everything, it was a pleasure working with you from the first interaction through to the final result on our wedding day. We have attached a couple of photos and would of course be happy for you to share any of these on your sites. If a review on a third-party site would be helpful, then please just let us know. All the best! Lauren and Tom

"The flowers were honestly stunning"
6 hours ago Thank you so much, Steph for making our beautiful flower arrangements for our wedding. The flowers were honestly stunning and everyone complimented them. Due to Covid, we did not actually meet Steph but from a fairly short phone call a few months before the wedding, she managed to create exactly what we wanted. I also had a few extra requests to make my bouquet more personal and to remember someone special who sadly could not be with us on the day and Steph made this so easy for me. Beautiful thank you bouquets, buttonholes, and corsages, and table decorations created perfectly to our style. The bridesmaids hoops were also very special. Easy going and safe collection as well. Very polite, helpful, attention to detail, personal service, and great prices. Thank you. Francesca

My bouquet was like something from a fairytale
Thank you Steph for the most perfect wedding flowers. I can’t thank you enough for getting my vision so spot on! The reception table arrangement was a show stopper and had so many compliments all evening. My bouquet was like something from a fairy tale and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steph!! Ellie Louise

Steph created a stunning centerpiece for our wedding with gorgeous and realistic flowers. She was easy to get in touch with throughout the process and involved me in choosing colors and concept of the piece. Shipped securely and quickly, arrived intact and ready to set out on our big day. Thanks so much Steph!! Eliza Harmon

What is your most memorable wedding?

Wow, so many gorgeous weddings and lovely couples. One stands out for comedic purposes. An inebriated mother in law (few too many celebration champagnes) who had decided to iron the Brides veil and made a gigantic hole in it. I ended up stitching fresh flowers onto it minutes before the wedding party was due to set off. Everyone was in tears when I arrived with the flowers, but it ended happily with lots of thanks for the help and the nifty stitching. Will always keep a needle and thread in my toolbox in future! Later, the Chauffeur of the wedding car told me that the mother in law fallen out of the car on arrival at the Church. Oh my. :)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural . Meadow-fresh .Loved. Wildish

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our commitment to making your wedding flowers the highest quality possible, as well as the glowing recommendations we receive from happy couples.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Use #Bride Book and book your suppliers as early as possible to secure your wedding date and ensure you get the best personal service. There are some great planning apps (Hitched is just one) available that will break down your budget for you and give you reminders when to book things.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Red rose petals, on the floor - spelling LOVE as the Bride walked into the honeymoon suite. I also love it when the Groom has put little presents on the top table for the Bride to find. Hint hint! :)

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A relaxed consultation either at the venue or at our office. Lots of note taking (us) and listening (us). Sharing of ideas and discussion around seasonal flowers and budget. A propsal of the floral kind is then sent to you, with suggested flower for the season you are getting wed. A second meeting or phone call to finalise numbers etc. 2 months prior to the wedding. Great communication throughout so you can relax about the process.

What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?

Sweets, Chicken nuggets... fruit... some interesting additions. One of my favourites was an Australian bride who shipped lots of foliage from her own garden to the UK to include in the bouquet. How incredible!

Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?

Peonies are a favourite at the moment. Peony meanings include romance, prosperity, good fortune, a happy marriage, riches, honour, and compassion - what could be better! Choose the peony season to get wed - its very short in the UK May - July.

What is the most romantic flower and why?

Its lovely to know the Victorian language of flowers and its something we use if a couple want special meanings for their flowers. The most romantic? Something that has been picked for you on a lovely walk on a sunny day...

What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?

Give to a relative who couldn't attend the wedding would be nice? However, if you want to keep the bouquet forever, we can recommend excellent flower preservation companies who can make jewellery or paperweights from your bouquet, as well as freeze drying the whole bouquet or buttonholes. Some couples like to put the flowers on a loved ones' grave. If that's too sad and you would like to keep them, hang your bouquet in a warm airy spot to air dry as soon as possible after the vent. Freshness is the key to successful saving of a bouquet. If will last a season or two. Alternatively its possible to dry the flowers in silica in the microwave or just press a few flowers in kitchen paper in a heavy book. A new trend is flower smashing - ask me for details :)
