Describe your typical process with a couple.
Step 1: Bride & Groom will get in contact by phone or email.
Step 2: Discussion of flowers for their big day either by email (depending if they know what flowers and designs they want) or by meeting.
Step 3: I work out a quote, if their wedding day is more then a year away then the quote will be estimated quote and then revised when its a year away and then will become a fixed quote.
Step 4: Deposit is worked out by 25% of the total. I take up to 2 weddings a day depending on the size of weddings so if you want to book me, putting a deposit down will secure your day with me and you won't have to worry about anyone else booking the same date as yours.
Step 5: Once deposit is paid receipt will be sent by email. Constant communication is welcomed as sometimes things change in numbers or a couple might see another flower that they think they want to add to their own wedding flowers.
Step 6: Any new designs that a couple want will be quoted and then confirmed and added to invoice.
Step 7: Future meetings, i offer as many as you like. The normal amount is between 1-3 meetings over a year. This of course all depends how far away couples live, convenience and schedule.
Step 8: The final balance is due 1 month before your wedding day and any final changes i advise to make now.
Step 9: I design your wedding flowers and you either collect them from my workshop or i deliver and set up and you enjoy their beautifulness!!
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I think a mini pineapple would have to be the most interesting!
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
Depends on the bride and what auro she wants to show from her wedding flowers.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Depending if you go on honeymoon straight after, if you don't then take them home and enjoy them for longer! If you're going on honeymoon straight after then give them away to family and friends who attended the wedding and let them take them home at nice ! There is always the option to give them to charity or even care homes were they will be mostly appreciated and admired.
