A big thank you
I am so thankful that we chose Judy for our wedding flowers. she is so lovely and welcoming and full on creative ideas. We had a budget in mind which she was able to put something together for us. On the wedding morning she presented all of the flowers with a name tag which I think is a brilliant idea for a keepsake. Judy made sure that everyone had their bouquets and buttonholes so you don't need to worry! This just goes to show how thoughtful she is. I absolutely loved my bouquet and I had so many compliments. I'm currently looking into getting a keepsake made out of it so I can keep them forever! Thankyou Judy xx

Thank you
To Judy, We wanted to write and say thank you for our beautiful wedding flowers. Going through our wedding photos, the flowers are one of the things we love the most. You completely understood what we liked and wanted from the flowers and brought your own experience and suggestions to make it truly special and ours. We really enjoyed our trips to see you and chat about flowers, it was like visiting a friend's house. Thank you again for the perfect interpretation of what we had in our minds and the friendly face on the wedding day. love Anna and Alex

The most beautiful flowers!
I found Blooming Chic after a simple online search, and met with Judy at her home at a convenient time for me. Judy provided an excellent service beforehand with clear explanations and honest prices, and I decided to go with Judy for my wedding flowers from the pictures of her previous work which was very much to my taste. On the wedding day itself, Judy arrived promptly with the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen! They were simply marvellous and more than I had hoped for. She very kindly met with the groomsmen to pin their buttonholes and gave out the bridesmaid posies and flower girl wand, and organised the long'n'low flowers with the venue. I did not have to headache at all, and am so grateful to her. Family and guests commented on how beautiful all the flowers were and they lasted long after the wedding day. Thank you to Judy and your team for all your hard work! I am forever thankful!

Thank you for my lovely flowers
Hello Judy. Thank you for my lovely flowers. The flower crown/ halo made my outfit even more amazing than I could dream of. The bouquet was gorgeous too! The wedding day was lovely and very glad I no longer have to plan anything wedding related again. Xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding was in a cemetery! A woodland clearing at the top of a hill above the cemetery which has a dedicated structure for weddings, it was so beautifully decorated. We were asked to decorate the Brides whole journey through the path in the woods with flowers. We had a huge hanging ball of flowers to a 12 foot meadow of flowers ribbons and floral crowns adorning trees and pew ends that covered the handrails up the path. The most unusual element was a wedding dress floating from a tree with a bridal bouquet. This was definitely a unique wedding.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, flowing, romantic, unique and beautiful

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am proud of our personal service and that we end up being friends with so many of our couples, with them coming back to us for other special events too. We love our business and I think our couples can see that.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

This has to be to book the people you get on well with, as they will be the ones you trust to help make your day really special.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My favourite personal touch I have seen at a wedding was one where every table at the reception had 2 extra chairs so that the wedding couple could join any table of guests comfortably.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The first consultation is at my workshop at my home where over a cuppa we discuss all the lovely things you want for your wedding day and how you want it to look. From there I send a quote, once you have decided that you want to book me as your florist then I provide you with more details about the flowers, look and themes for your day. We have a final consultation one month before your wedding day to discuss all the logistics and finer details for your special day. On your wedding day I am around to attach buttonholes, calm nerves and generally wish you well by placing all your gorgeous flowers.

What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?

I am often asked to attach items to bouquets, these include miniature frames with images of lost loved ones, Brooches, Disney characters and even a gun cartridge! Although the gun cartridges are more usually requested for the Groom’s buttonhole.

Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?

Let me know your favourite flowers and we can find their meanings, it is lovely to have flowers in your bouquet that secretly speak to you. Often I will include rosemary for people who have lost someone as it stands for remembrance.

What is the most romantic flower and why?

All flowers have their own meanings, such as the lilac rose which indicates new love and the red rose true love. My personal favourite is the Nigella flower more commonly known as love in a mist and has the meaning of honour, love and strong bonds.

What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?

I would recommend that you carefully take the bouquet apart and press the flowers. Once they are flat and dried you can arrange them in a frame.
