Describe your typical process with a couple.
I'm usually contacted through my websites contact us page. I then email the couple to arrange a consultation. This can be daytime, evening or weekends after any wedding set ups. I bring an IPad of my work for them to view and some wedding magazines. I usually spend up to an hour with the couple. I then email them over a quote for their wedding flowers. If the couple book I then arrange to go back to see them with some floral samples. Sometimes we will then meet again at their venue. I work with the Bride and groom until they feel happy with the choices they have made.
