What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
When planning your wedding flowers, my number one tip is to use your budget to focus on one big design for maximum impact, rather than having lots of smaller designs, dotted around. The larger designs are always the most memorable and make for fabulous photo backdrops.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First things first, we'll have a chat about what you've got in mind for your wedding. If you've got some pictures or moodboards, that's even better. We'll work out what style of flowers you like talk about and what elements you want for your big day. Once I'm clear on what you need, I'll put together a quote for you, taking you through the vision of your wedding flowers and how much they will cost. You'll give me your feedback and we can tweak the designs and add in forgotten aunts corasages and table designs for extra guests! You'll then pay your 50% deposit to secure your date. We'll next catch up a couple of months before the big day to check in and ensure the plan is still OK and we don't need to add anything else in. Your final payment will be made 4 weeks before the wedding so that I can place the flower order. It's an early start for me on your wedding day as I'll be creating your bouquets and buttonholes in the morning and hand delivering them to you before you head to the ceremony. I'll also be busy setting up your venue and on hand for any turnarounds we have to bring flowers from the ceremony to the reception. Once all the dancing and champagne are finished, I'll be back to take all the flowers away and sweep up every last petal.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
Plants! Obviously not your average cut flowers, but succulent plants look amazing in bouquets with their blue green colour and soft rounded petals.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
I love to find flowers for my couples that really represent them. Whether it's the flower from your home town, or a favourite flowers of a loved one, bringing them into the designs makes your wedding flowers incredibly personal and meaningful.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
I work with Confetti Club London to dry and repurpose any leftover flowers into confetti!V
