What is your most memorable wedding?
I've had the pleasure of floralling some amazing weddings so it's hard to choose but my best friends wedding when I was a bridesmaid as well was a pretty special one.

What about your business are you most proud of?
Getting bookings from couples who've been recommended to me by previous couples I've worked with.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your florist in good time! I'm regularly booked 12-18 months in advance, especially for popular summer dates.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I've seen so many unique and personal ideas; it's always special to see how loved ones are included even if they can't be there in person - a photo locket tied onto the bouquet is one of my favourite ways to have them with you on the day
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After an initial contact via email we'd arrange a consultation in person to discuss the details of the wedding, ideas for flowers and suggestions for styling and decor, then after confirming the booking I'd often make or follow a pinterest board. We'd finalise the flower order around 8 weeks before the date.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I love including ingredients which are bit bit different from your average wedding flowers - succulents, seedpods, berries or feathers.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
A rose is the symbol of love and comes in a huge ranges of colours and shapes so can work with any colour scheme or style.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
Roses are the quintessential wedding flower and a favourite flower with many couples but I also love the delicate and fragrant sweet pea.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Bouquets can be dried or preserved as a keepsake, there are various companies which dry and frame your flowers, or you can DIY by hanging in a warm, dry space such as an airing cupboard. You can also give the fresh flowers such as table centres as gifts to your guests or even donate to a local nursing home or hospice to bring a smile to the residents.
