Your Beautiful Wedding Flowers
The design process…
I love designing flowers for weddings, weddings to me are all about perfection and beauty and no two weddings that I design are ever the same. I like to start the process off with an initial telephone consultation, I can then establish what you are looking for and provide you with some costings and images. Alternatively it also helps if you email me any ideas or mood boards that you may have. If you are happy with my suggestions I like to arrange a site visit if this is possible, it really helps to view the venue when discussing ideas and designs. However if this is not possible we can do everything over email or on the telephone. I will provide you with design ideas for your wedding backed up with photographs of my work. I will email you over a detailed quotation and a breakdown of all the costings involved.
Your wedding flowers…
Every wedding I work on is special and important to me whether big or small. Your flowers will always be personally ordered and chosen by me for your wedding. I buy everything from London’s best flower market ’New Covent Garden Flower Market’ in Vauxhall. This involves 3am starts but it is worth it to get the pick of the best flowers and foliage available in London. I have built up good relationships with many suppliers in the market over the years and trust that what I get from them is top quality and the best available! I am a perfectionist and nothing but the best will do for my customers. I tend to pre order most of the flowers as this ensures that they are at their freshest and are exactly the right specification for your wedding. The same applies with the foliage I use, I am as fussy with this as with the flowers as it is just as important in my eyes. I like to buy English flowers and foliage when I can and am always looking at new varieties. All the flowers are collected from the flower market and taken back to my studio and are then fully conditioned (stems cut and leaves stripped) and put in fresh water with a little food. By doing this with all the flowers I am confident that they will look beautiful for the day and go on to last long after the wedding is over.
The wedding day….
Most of the flowers for your wedding will be made up in my purpose built studio the day before the wedding. However I always make all the wired items for example buttonholes, corsages and wired bridal bouquets on the day of the wedding, usually at around 4am! I like to be sure that you are getting the best service from me and my team and want your flowers to look their best on your wedding day. Your flowers will be made with love and care by me (I always personally make all the bridal bouquets) and my team of hard working and talented freelance florists. If there is site work to do such as arches, staircases, larger displays we will ensure that we are there preparing these as early as we can on the day. We will deliver all your bridal flowers, bridesmaids and buttonholes to you wherever you are staying so that you can arrange for them to be included in the photographs in the run up to the wedding. The flowers for your venue will all be setup and arranged by us and if you need anything moved to the reception after the ceremony we are available to help with this. I can cater for weddings of any size and hire in teams of support staff and vehicles for larger weddings.
