So you're recently engaged & eager to get started with every element of your big day, but where do you start when it comes to wedding flowers? Here I've put together some of the most commonly asked questions.
When should I contact you about my wedding?
As soon as your date is set we can start to discuss your wedding flowers. If you want to be sure that I'm available on the date you want, the earlier the better. You can always secure your date & we can discuss the detail at a later date. I work on a first come, first served basis and bookings are only confirmed once a 25% non-refundable booking fee has been paid.
Will you work with us?
Yes! I pride myself on being an inclusive designer. I work with couples from all communities & welcome those planning a LGBTQ+ wedding. In my world, love is love!
How much will my flowers cost?
Every wedding is different & the costs involved are to. As a minimum I would set aside at least 10% of your overall budget for flowers if you're thinking of having any more than just bridal party flowers. I will always do my best to work with you whether I'm providing just flowers for you & your maids or a large scale installation. I offer two wedding services. My Bespoke service is for those looking to fully emersed in the planning or that have a budget of £1000+, if you are having an intimate wedding or are looking for a hands off approach then my Essential Elements wedding package starts from £200.
I also offer interest free payment plans. Spread the cost of you wedding flowers by paying in regular installments. At the point of booking & paying your deposit you can choose to pay in monthly installments, larger deposits or with one final payment 30 days before your wedding.
What information do you need to provide me with a quote?
Wedding flowers are unique to every couple & therefore I will ask you a lot of questions to make sure we're both on the same page. The wedding enquiry form & the following questionnaire that I will send you, provides me with the basic information I need to get started but providing me with photos or a link to your Pinterest board will help me understand what you are looking for.
The less prescriptive you are about your flowers the better the end product will be. We're working with Mother Nature so it’s best to leave the final design detail to me once we've established your theme, colour palette & style. I promise you won't be disappointed!
I've completed the enquiry form - what next?

Are flowers available all year round?
No. Most flowers are seasonal with different varieties being available at different times of the year. We will discuss any specific flower requests you may have at your consultation.
Will my flowers be eco-friendly?
It is my goal to be as eco-friendly as possible! 90% of the time all my designs are floral foam free - that stuff is nasty! There is the very rare occasion where I will still use it, but if you are particularly concerned about the environmental impact of your designs then tell me & we can work together to find a solution.
I also strive to use little to no single use plastic in my designs. This is why I will always come back to dismantle installations so that I can make sure everything is recycled correctly.
What happens to the flowers afterwards?
All the flowers are yours! I can put you in touch with flower preservation services if you would like too.
Anything in a hired container is also yours, but the containers will need to be returned after the wedding. Usually I will come and collect these the next day, but it all depends on the venue & when they’d like me to clear up! If you want the flowers from any hire items you will need to supply containers of your own, or pay a security deposit so that you may borrow the containers temporarily. Sometimes the flowers don’t transfer easily from one container to another so I will factor in the cost of me re-arranging them in your collection fee. Let me know as soon as you do what you’d like to do & I’ll let you know what can be done.
