What is your most memorable wedding?
That's a tough one as we get swept away by every bouquet, every arch and every glorious urn arrangement we create. Looking back over the past 12 years, there are so many happy memories and so many installations it's been hard to walk away from because it looks so damn beautiful : )

If you love a particular flower and want to include it in your wedding florals (peonies are usually at the top of the list), be sure to check when it's in season before you book your date.

A dessert table full of cakes and bakes cooked by family and friends. Many were family recipes and we loved the backstory menu cards explaining them.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the initial consultation, at which we discuss in details plans and ideas for the big day, an inspiring floral design plan is created.

Definitely a scented garden rose.

You could give them to your guests or leave then behind so that we can take them to a local hospice or care home.
