What about your business are you most proud of?
I love being part of such a happy day for the wedding couple and making the flowers perfect. The floristry industry is very supportive of each other and it is wonderful being part of such a creative community. British flower farms are a growing trend and I try to use as many British flowers as I can with no floral foam.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The first step would be to meet you, the wedding couple - either over a coffee or at the venue so we can get to know each other and find out what flowers you had in mind. This of course would be free of charge and without any obligation at all. We could have a chat about everything floral and what hopes and dreams you would have for your big day. Then I would put together an initial quote and if there is a budget I would try and work out solutions and recommendations so that this isn't exceeded. If the initial quote is ok then I would ask for a deposit to secure the booking and then provide a detailed quote which would include a colour palette and moodboard, as well as a complete breakdown of the flowers. On the day itself I will deliver the bouquets and buttonholes to your home or venue and will be on site to style the venue and make sure everything is absolutely perfect. Of course I can also dismantle at the end of the day if required.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
Everyone loves a beautiful rose but my personal favourite, if I had to name one, would be an anemone. At the moment I really love the pale coffee and apricot coloured flowers - in particular the dahlia "cafe au lait" is gorgeous!
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Take them home, share them with your guests and family and enjoy them!
