Describe your typical process with a couple.
Lots of contact and discussion! Whether it be by phone, email, face to face, at the venue, in their home, nothing is too much trouble for us. We can discuss flowers at any time, daytime or evening, 7 days a week and like nothing better than chatting about your wedding. Once we have had extensive discussions with you and you are happy to book with us, we ask for a small booking fee and are then at your service and will do everything we can to accommodate even the most unusual requests. We ask for full payment for your flowers two weeks before the wedding. We can arrange all of the flowers for you or are happy to help with any flowers you or any family members wish to arrange yourselves to complement the flowers we are providing, either with structured workshops or just general guidance in the week up to the wedding.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
We love ting ting in any winter arrangements, it really lifts any colour scheme and is not too "in your face". Just a subtle, classy bit of bling in a very natural arrangement. We also love grasses, herbs and fragranced flowers and foliages for a real country meadow feel.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
We are not really into symbolism but if a flower means a great deal to the family we can certainly do our utmost to source it for them.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
All flowers are romantic in that they speak volumes to the one you love. The prettier and more delicate and scented the better!
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
You are of course very welcome to keep all of your wedding flowers after the wedding as you have paid for them. Always recut the stems before you place the flowers back in water after a car journey so that they can drink effectively. Structured arrangements such as top table flowers and dining table arrangements can be shared among to the guests to have on tables at home and jars of flowers, as are popular at many barn weddings, make great little gifts for the guests after the event.
