What is your most memorable wedding?
A 4 tipi wedding with miles of foliage garlands on beautiful soft grey linen. A stunning triple hoop suspension of floral garlands over the bar, a blousey rose laden floral arch plus additional pedestal arrangements. All in a lakeside setting near Ewen, the source of the Thames.

My wedding style is very natural, seasonal, "outside in". I offer a personal service with great attention to detail.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax and enjoy it. There are alot of decisions to make but they should all be about creating a wedding that is personal to you. Allow your personality and interest to come through- it is YOUR wedding after all!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A quiz for the guests at the reception on how well they knew the bride and groom!

Informal consultation (chat and a cup of tea) followed by a written budget estimate. Following a booking, we continue to chat intermittently via email or phone. This culminates in final confirmation of requirements ahead of delivery and set up. I then clear away my items the next day.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
The one which brings back memories for you.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Gift them to relatives, dry your bouquet in a dark room, preserve some of the flowers in a paper weight, spread them around your home and enjoy them!!
