Describe your typical process with a couple.
When first making contact with a couple i would arrange a free consultation usually in the comfort of my design studio, or at a couple home. Sometimes a bride likes to bring along her Mother, other relatives and friends. All are welcome as i like a relaxed atmosphere where the bride feels at home. I request that a bride brings along any pictures and samples of ideas that she has seen and liked. I have a form that i will complete as we go along, discussing bouquets, bridesmaids, buttonholes, venue flowers, church flowers, containers, etc. I have a large selection of books and magazines to look through as well as samples of decorative accessories that can be added to the designs. I am there to guide a couple with season flower choices and will point out any issues i can foresee with any designs that they have chosen. I will then provide a couple with a itemised quotation along with hire charges if required and a colour board for each bridal arrangement. A 20% deposit secures the order and their day. The balance is due one month prior to the wedding date. I will keep in contact from the time of ordering through to the wedding date and happy to make alterations if required.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I have used a decorative pin from an army officer on the handle of the bouquet.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Give the flowers out to guests as gifts so they can continued to be enjoyed for that little bit longer.
