I have been a floral designer in the wedding sector for over 37 years, I love working with couples to create something amazing and unique. We offer a free non obligational consultation at our 650 year old grade two listed barn, we chat with a coffee and cake and go through every detail to create the perfect image for your day. Even if you have no idea whatsoever on where to start with your floral arrangements - we are here to advise and bring vision to your day. Once you have decided that you would like to commission us for your day, we are always on hand to answer any questions or quieries you may have. We arrange a final meeting with you approximately one month before your wedding to go through all the finer details of your day, this ensures that everything runs as smoothly as possible. Leaving you to enjoy the day. After the wedding day itself we would then go back to your venue and collect anything that has been hired from us. We take so much pride in our work - that I am afraid to say I am a touch OCD. I have to have everything perfect on the day, not just with our flowers, but also with other items on the tables, if I see a piece of cutlery not spotless I will notify someone to correct this. I would not leave a venue in any other way than I would like it for my own wedding, I have designed flowers in most of the Essex venues and also cover venues in London, Kent, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk. We will also cover other areas and destinations, We can transform every aspect of your day from Bridal party Flowers, Churches and venue decoration. We also provide a vintage Candy Cart, Crystal Wishing Trees, Post Boxes and Confetti Cones, we stock a very large amount of Glassware, Candelabras and props. Please contact me for a very informal chat at my studio, I look forward to meeting you.
