What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable weddings have been those where you’ve built up a rapport and relationship with the client and you know you know exactly what they’re after and can’t wait for their wedding day. And then, once you’ve delivered it all, you’re sad but you hope you’ll keep in touch. I’ve had quite a few of those actually!
What about your business are you most proud of?
That I truly offer a very personal service
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be organised and keep on top of your plans, then there’s no stress
Describe your typical process with a couple.
No two weddings are the same so prices will vary depending on the type of wedding flowers you choose, size and number of displays and the number of guests. That’s why I would recommend getting together initially for a free and no obligation consultation from which I can supply you with a quote. If you’re happy with that then a deposit secures the date and we can continue to develop your ideas and wedding flower plans. Venue visits are a must really as it’s always good to walk through the day and make sure we haven’t missed anything. Also good to know you’re happy that I’m happy about what’s expected on the day, so you don’t have to worry. Final flower order is confirmed about 3-4 weeks before your wedding, full payment is due then too. Then I’ll take care of all the deliveries and set up on the day and clear up of flower arrangements from the venue the day after.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
A bride’s grandmother’s pearl necklace was draped through the flowers
What is the most romantic flower and why?
I love a peony, especially a pink one that’s soft, fluffy and scented - one you cant help but stick your nose in to smell. And that smell makes you feel all romantic!
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
If you’re heading off on honeymoon straight after your wedding then I’m sure your Mum or a very close relative would be honoured to take your bouquet home. And make sure the flowers from your table arrangements go home with friends. Guests love to take flowers home with them after a wedding!
