Full Description
We believe every wedding day is unique and should be a reflection of your personalities. We therefore love spending time creating the perfect flowers and floral finishing just for you. We tend to favour a more natural style, but equally have designed and delivered some stunning contemporary and structural weddings. The key is to make it perfect for you. We have our own cutting garden where we grow very English, soft flowers which we use wherever possible to ensure a local provenance. We adore weddings, adore anything quirky or unusual and love to talk through your ideas, no matter how big or small.

Amanda has been simply stunning. Always a pleasure to communicate with and knowledgeable whilst always being approachable. Her work stands for itself. Our day would not have been so beautiful if it wasn't for her and the fact that she was able to cater for our particular tastes with locally sourced pine cones, conkers and crab apples only added to the deeply personal service she provides. We received so many positive comments about our flowers it is impossible to recommend her more highly.

‎We had organised the meeting with Amanda in March. After telling her our initial ideas about autumn colours and calla lilies she came up with the great vision of the centre pieces for each table (10 tables) Through March till October she kept me posted and in queried about my and maid of honour dresses. After speaking to Amanda again in September, I have realised that she is a true professional and I don't need to worry a thing! When I have arrived to the venue, the colours, the composition

Amanda really understood what we wanted, I don't know lots of flowers but she took our theme on board and found the flowers perfect for our wedding and venue. Receiving the flowers on the wedding morning was one of my highlights. In photos they look as stunning. Amanda really was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to any one looking for a florist for their wedding! Wish we could do it all again. Thank you Amanda! X

From the word go...
From the word go, Amanda was incredibly professional and clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about floristry. She went above and beyond to get us the flowers that we wanted despite a couple of them being out of season. She had them shipped specially for our wedding and was sure to cover any extra costs incurred. She kept us well informed of every detail without being overbearing and was without doubt our favourite supplier for the whole wedding. I would recommend them to everyone!

We were thrilled with the flowers provided by Amanda. They were absolutely stunning and exactly as described in our initial meetings. The quality of the flowers/presentation were brilliant, lasting for weeks. Amanda's ability to think outside the box to incorporate a sword hilt on my bouquet to keep in theme with my pirate/game of thrones wedding was great.

Amanda at Distinctly Floral is the most passionate florist...
Amanda at Distinctly Floral is the most passionate florist and fun character! She was brilliant throughout the process of planning, interpreting our limited ideas and knowledge of flowers and foliage into the most beautiful creations that were exactly what we wanted without realising. She made what we thought was a must be done" task fun and exciting. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Amanda to anyone for any occasion."

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

All our weddings are memorable for one reason or another and we pride ourselves on remembering which flowers each couples chose, regardless of when we managed their weddings.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, Natural , Colourful, Creative, Memorable

What about your business are you most proud of?

Providing flowers for over 700 weddings and yet managing to make our couples feel special.

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

Be yourselves! Do what you want, rather than what someone else has done or has told you you should provide.

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

One groom had his grandparents' sofa delivered to the venue for them to be comfortable during the wedding ceremony....such a wonderful gesture.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We meet in our studios for a consultation and talk (probably too much) about wedding dreams, styles, aspirations and flowers. We then produce a quotation for the couple and if they say yes, will confirm the booking and keep in touch via email, phone or in person right up until the big day (and often beyond!)

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

Sweets, a Go-Pro camera, lego, jewellery....anything goes.!

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

Lots of flowers have meanings and symbolism, e.g rosemary for remembrance, white roses for pure love. However, I believe that brides should choose flowers that they love or mean something to them personally, rather than something that has been pre-determined as having specific symbolism.

What is the most romantic flower and why?

That all depends on each individual couple as it may be a flower that they first gave to each other, that was in their parent's bouquet, that was their grandmother's favourite flower, or that they managed to grown in their first garden. Everyone is different and flowers have different meanings for each person.

What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?

Ensure they are taken home, given to guests or given to someone who will love them.
