What about your business are you most proud of?
The personal, bespoke service that I offer.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't panic - find experts that you like and trust, and let them take some of the load off your shoulders.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love seeing anything included that really reflects the couple - it could be the theme, a piece of jewelry, a particular flower or a special reading.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I offer an initial consultation via Zoom/Skype, in order to get to know a bit about you. Here we discuss your venue, colour choices (if you've made them), your likes and dislikes, the overall style and feel you want to achieve, and of course the all important budget! We then go on a journey together to plan your ideal wedding flowers - I communicate with you every step of the way - from the first consultation, right up to your wedding day. I work to guide and advise you throughout the process, whilst staying true to you and your vision. I work to a budget, not a price list so that I can be flexible with my designs and ensure that you get the most for your money.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
Flowers are such a personal choice that it's impossible to choose just one to recommend. I think it's important to recommend flowers and colours that reflect the couples' personality.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
Garden roses, Peonies and Dahlias never fail to give a romantic feel! I think their large blousy forms just ooze romance. But softer materials flowers such as Astrantia, trailing Passion flower, Eucalyptus gunnii and Clematis also give a lovely sense of movement and softness to a design.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
To extend the life of your bouquet, trim the ends of the flowers and place into fresh water. It's also nice to press a selection of blooms/petals as a keepsake.
When it comes to arrangements, many brides choose to give then away to loved ones to take home.
