Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Classic Vintage Country Modern
What about your business are you most proud of?
Our personal service and attention to detail. We only book one wedding per day so our focus is entirely on your celebration!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book all your suppliers as soon as you have your venue - colour schemes and styles can change before the big day but if you haven't blocked the date you could be disapointed!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One bride pinned a locket of her grandmother inside the bodice of her wedding dress and we also attached lockets with photos to her bouquet.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initially we have a meeting where we discuss the venue, colour schemes and the style of flowers. Bringing along photos that you've seen of bouquets and centrepieces is really useful as are any colour swatches. A quotation is then sent out detailing everything that was discussed at the meeting, once the deposit is received that date is blocked solely for that couples wedding celebration. Further meetings can take place nearer to the date if needed and the balance is paid four weeks before the wedding. On the day the flowers are delivered to the Bride in time for the photographer to take the getting ready shots, we then set up the ceremony room and the wedding breakfast room, returning the following day to collect all the hired items - that's it very straight forward :)
What is the best themed wedding you have worked at?
We did a Disney themed wedding with mouse heads in the centre of the bridesmaids bouquets and mouse shaped hanging pomanders which looked really cute.
What are the decorative trends with brides currently?
Blush pinks and nude colour schemes are popular at the moment and there are some lovely bridesmaids dresses that match this theme
What is your signature finishing touch?
We don't have a signature finishing touch as we feel that would impose on our couples style and ideas for their day!
What decoration do you think every wedding needs?
Apart from the obvious - flowers, I think adding candlelight looks gorgeous with fresh flowers, it doesn't have to be great big candelabras tealights work brilliantly and give off more light than you would expect, and totally change a room when it gets dark.
