Most of my enquiries are through instagram, my website or personal recommendations. Having made contact I aim to get back to you within 48 hours. I like to have an initial chat before giving a quote to find out what my potential bride would ideally love. We can arrange to meet in my studio or in a relaxed cafe atmosphere, or even have a telephone appointment. Any mood boards, pictures from mags or Pinterest would be most helpful at this stage to give me an insight into what you would ideally love.

All wedding flowers under £850 are for collection only.

From our discussions I will prepare a quote. Each wedding will be tailored to everything you want. If your budget does not quite match your initial thoughts I can suggest alternatives.

To save the date I ask for a 25% non refundable booking fee which will be deducted from the total balance.

Couples tend to book between 12 and 18 months in advance although with Covid I have had many late bookings too. It is best to book early to avoid disappointment especially if marrying in peak season which is May through to September.

We will have many chats before your wedding day and a  site visit  will help us to select the best positions for your floral arrangements.

A week before your wedding I will order your flowers: I will collect and condition them so they will be at their peak condition when made up. Large arrangements for the ceremony and reception venue will be delivered and arranged the day before having made prior appointments with the locations.

Your  wedding party flowers will normally be delivered two hours before the wedding although I am very flexible..

I will make sure everything is perfect so it will be one less thing for you to worry about.

After the big day I will clear away  and collect any of our vases and make sure everything is left as it should be.

If  you would like to get in touch for a Free Consultation Please do not hesitate to contact me.

How Much Do Wedding Flowers Cost?

(According to some top bridal mags)

For the cost of floral arrangements for your Wedding allow 10 to 15% of your wedding budget.

 

It is very helpful if 'Brides-to-be' are up front about their budget from the outset so that their  Florist can design something beautiful and within their limit.

 

There are four main areas that can impact the cost:

Where your Wedding is to be held and where your Florist is based.

The time of the year you intend to get married.

The Floral order itself.

Variety of Flowers included.

 

If your wedding is located a fair distance from your Florist then delivery charges will be higher than a local location to the Florist.

Some Wedding venues do not require a lot of decoration like a country mansion or stately home, but a blank canvas like a marquee will require a lot more thought and coverage thus being potentially more expensive.

The more blank space you need to cover, the more flowers you will need.

Wall decorations will be more expensive than simple table arrangements. If you wish to keep within a budget then it will be worth considering just the main areas of the ceremony and venue.

Garlands, and Floral Arches may be more impressive to your guests than lots of smaller designs. Consider using Greenery too as it is often less expensive than flowers but bring a lovely fresh feel to the venue.

 

The Wedding date can have a huge impact on costs. Flowers tend to be more expensive in the Winter and certain celebration dates like Mothers Day, Valentines Day, and Christmas. If you wish to keep costs down order flowers that are in the season the ceremony is to be held. 

The more complex the arrangements the more time it takes to create them and the more expensive it will be. The same can be said for your bouquet. A simple hand tied seasonal bouquet with seasonal flowers is going to cost less than an opulent cascading style.

The varieties of flora and fauna used can impact your budget. As a quick example a Rose will be more expensive than a Carnation and a non native piece of foliage like a Palm leaf will cost more than British grown greenery. In addition a standard  Rose is going to cost less than a branded Rose like 'David Austin'. Also consider British grown flowers over those grown and imported from abroad as these will have import charges levied on them which your Florist will have to pass on to you.
