What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is memorable and very special.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Beautiful, natural, rustic, country, bespoke wedding designs.
What about your business are you most proud of?
We not only create bespoke wedding floral designs, but also grow many of the flowers ourselves.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I am often asked to include a particular flower in a bouquet as a reminder of a loved one, or fasten miniature photographs to bridal bouquets for remembrance. We often use the herb Rosemary for that reason too.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I will often have an enquiry by email, via social media or by the Website Contact Form and will send my pricelist to the couple and offer to meet them to discuss their wedding flower ideas further. Following our meeting a quotation is prepared and if the couple want to go ahead, a £100 booking deposit is paid and contract signed and we usually meet once again and exchange emails to finalise the wedding flower order.
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
I have used peacock feathers (from our resident peacock) in a bouquet and some buttonholes which worked really well.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for couples?
In floriography or, the language of flowers, Roses symbolise beauty and love. It is a flower I adore to use in bridal work.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
The Rose, because historically it has always symbolised beauty and love.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Brides used to throw their bouquets to the waiting guests, but nowadays bouquets are often placed on the cake table or in vases at the venue, along with bridesmaid bouquets, as extra table arrangements. After the wedding I think it is a lovely idea to press some of the flowers in the bridal bouquet and make a flower card with them as a keepsake. After the wedding venue flowers could be given as wedding favours to guests.
