How would you describe your business in three words?
“Professional, Friendly & Creative.”
What inspires you in your business?
“I find inspiration from all around me, from nature and the natural world, from my garden, from colour trends and designs in home decor and fashion. The colours and shapes within all of these do impact on the floral world and wedding flower design.
The changing seasons are also of great inspiration, I advise all couples to choose ‘seasonal’ wherever possible…it’s amazing what delights can be found to use in wedding design….even in the depths of winter!”
On average, how much do couples spend with you?
“Always a tricky one this “the average” spend? All weddings are unique and as such all have a vast choice of flowers and styles to choose from, How many bouquets, how many buttonholes, the number of table centrepieces, if any? All of which inevitably has an affect on the cost.
Typically a couple can spend between £1100 – £2000 for a full package of bridal flowers, church flowers and venue centrepieces.
Prices really do depend on whether they are having a small and intimate wedding with flowers costing around £300 or if they go for a large full on celebration where florals can cost upward of £2000….the sky really is the limit if you have the budget.”
What makes your business special?

From the initial meeting through to the big day we work closely together, in ensuring that everything is perfect for that Special Day, they’ve planned so hard for.”
