What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Buy into the people you are using to provide your services. Anyone can show you amazing photographs of products but you really need to buy 'the person' with their style, personality and most importantly reliability and trust to do the job exactly how you imagine it!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I offer a very relaxed first consultation to get a feel for your ideas for your day as well as giving you the opportunity to ask me questions and get to know me. Following this, I provide a written quote which you would need to accept in order to secure your wedding date. I ask for a 10% booking fee. You can then contact me as much as you need to before the wedding to discuss ideas, change ideas, add new ideas or even just to have a good old chat or rant to someone about all things wedding. I will be with you every step of the journey to planning that dream. 3 weeks before the wedding day we will finalise plans, costs and pay the final balance. On the day of the wedding I will be the one delivering the bouquets and attending the venues to set up the flowers for you to ensure everything is perfect. After the event, I offer a break down service if required.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I love orchids and roses and I love the being able to incorporate techniques into a bouquet to make it really unique. For example, pearls threaded onto bear grass that are the looped or left trailing from a bouquet.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
A classic scented rose
What is the most romantic flower and why?
A classic scented rose. They remind me of heady summer days in my grandma's garden as a child.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Incorporate table flowers that can used as gifts for guests to take away with them. I always recommend preserving your bouquet. I still have mine preserved and in a beautiful frame on my wall as an eternal reminder.
