What is your most memorable wedding?
We were lucky to be part of a May wedding where the bride left it to us to choose all the flowers and just gave us colour direction.We went flower shopping mad and brought all the flowers under the sun! She married in a marquee set on a farm with gorgeous views so we filled crates full of flowers, vases and jars bursting with colour and frangrance and finished off the marquee with a 55 foot flower garland for people to dance the night away under! It was so satisfying even though hard work to see everything come together!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Wild, natural, seasonal, fun, personal
What about your business are you most proud of?
We are most proud of the success we have been lucky enough to have so far. Having worked with so many fun and lovely couples we feel very fortunate to be able to create designs that our couples love and seeing their reactions on the day-nothing quite beats it!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Our top tip has to be flower related (of course!) Some couples come to us and are unsure of what flowers they want and feel like they should know exactly what they should have. We find our best weddings we put together are when couples let us know their colours and feel for the day rather than the individual stems wanted. Of course we want to know your favourites and definitely flowers you don't like but by being more open to different flowers you may have not thought about you get the best selection! Remember we are the experts and you are paying us to know what will look amazing on the day in the designs you want. Also stick to flowers that are in season when you are getting married as they are at their best when it's their time to shine!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We were part of a nutritionists wedding so she naturally wanted her flowers to be veggie filled! We used artichokes, brassica (cabbages on stems!) alliums, dill, rosemary and sage to fill her wedding with the veggies she loved so much!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once you have got in contact with us we will set you up with a consultation either face to face or on the phone if this is easier. When we meet we go through all your ideas, colours, themes, loves and hates and then we send you over a personal proposal with all of what you want itemised with costs. We can make adjustments if needed and when (and if!) you would like us onboard then we ask for 20% non-refundable deposit to hold the day for you. In between then and your day we can meet you at the venue or a few times before to confirm everything!
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
Symbolism only works if it means something to you! Flowers have their own symbols but we have had brides who request certain flowers as it take them back to different memories and times in their life.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
The first flower your fiancé ever gave you.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
We suggest having a couple of spare vases of water around on the day to pop in your bridal and bridesmaids bouquet to help keep them fresh on the day. The other flowers are great to give away as favours or you can ask us to get in touch with a company called 'Flora Angels' who take your wedding flowers, remake the deisgn and give them to care home and charities!
