Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Quality, seasonal, bespoke, pretty, memorable
What about your business are you most proud of?
How creative and efficient we are and how every design that leaves the shop door is of a quality that I would be ecstatic to receive myself!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be organised, have an idea as to what colour scheme/style you would like your flowers to be and if you have any preference to flowers, get a few photos together and have them ready to show the florist the sort of thing you would like for your big day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Organise a consultation with myself to come in the shop and talk through your wedding flowers in detail over a cuppa, I will note your preferences, colour scheme, styles etc and send you over a quote and moodboard of seasonal flower types that I intend to incorporate to your wedding flowers.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I had a couple who were married in September who both absolutely loved Champagne. I incorporate the little 'Moet' and 'Tattinger' champagne tops in to her bouquet which worked really well with her Autumnal colour scheme. Something slightly different and unusual!
What is the most romantic flower and why?
Everyone immediately says that a Red Rose is the most romantic flower.. however, from meeting so many brides and talking through their wedding flowers that they often want to incorporate flowers that their partner bought them for the first time in a bouquet. Everyone has their own preferences to flower types, varieties and colours so it can vary so much!!
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
I like to create the flowers so they can easily be taken home after the wedding or given to guests as a gift. If you are heading off on honeymoon straight after the wedding it's such a shame to leave them at home and not being enjoyed - guests are always so grateful to receive something beautiful from the wedding day to enjoy after the day is over.
