What is your most memorable wedding?
A wedding at a local fort on the coast of Cornwall where the flower girls were dressed as fairies and came down a path of wild flowers with the bride to the ceremony area. It was magical and a stunning venue.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Perfectionist , organised, creative, imaginative, dynamic
What about your business are you most proud of?
The thank letters I receive from my wedding couples an their families after the wedding
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Try to reuse your flowers as much as possible. For example re use the bridesmaids bouquets as table decorations by placing them in ornate vases.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I created a shower broach bouquet for one of my brides and it contained, old broaches from her grandmother, great aunts. All her friend donated jewellery that I could take apart and individually wire t form part of the bouquet. She was a teacher and a silver charm was added tat represented her school. The bouquet was totally unique and very personal to her. See her comments below:- Had so many amazing comments about it and have recommended you to a few brides who are looking for something a bit different too! Thanks so much for making it so special. I have it on display at home and smile every time I see it!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always like to try and to meet with the bride and groom face to face to discuss their vision for the day. However, sometimes this is not possible so I will telephone, email or use Skype, whichever is best for the bride and groom to ensure we can discuss exactly what they would like for their wedding flowers. Once Amanda has a good understanding of their requirements, she will put together a pictorial flowers scheme with a quotation. If a couple wishes to book Flowers by Amanda a 20 % deposit is required on booking. Then it is a case of keeping in touch as the wedding planning progresses. A month before the wedding Amanda will contact the bride and groom to finalise the order and to ascertain he timings for the day. A final order is sent to the bride and groom for checking. Final payment for the flowers two weeks before the wedding. On the wedding day Amanda will personally deliver the bouquet to the bride, deliver the buttonholes etc as per the agreed timings for the day and setup any venue flowers.
