A: Probably earlier than you might think you need to! I tend to get booked up around a year in advance, so as soon as you’ve set your date and chosen your venue, get in touch and let’s start dreaming up some flowers together.
Q: I've seen something I love on Pinterest, can you recreate it?
A: Pinterest is an incredible tool, and it’s become such a key part of wedding planning that it’s a wonder how we ever managed without it! However, while it’s great for initial inspiration gathering, I always prefer never to recreate anything. Your love story is extraordinary and it deserves more than a copy. Together, we’ll design something completely original that reflects you and your partner, and your flowers will be the ones being pinned on future brides’ Pinterest boards!
Q: Where do you find your inspiration?
A: There’s no way of saying this without sounding cheesy, but my inspiration chiefly comes from you guys! Each set of wedding flowers I design has to represent a couple’s style, so it’s important I get to know every couple I work with really well. I’m also inspired by the flowers themselves – I want each varietal I use to find its own place within an arrangement, that’s the key to making them sing.
Q: Do you have a minimum spend for your wedding services?
A: I try not to be too prescriptive about this. But as a guide, my couples typically have anything from £2000 to upwards of £10,000 budgeted for their flowers.
Q: Where in the country do you cover?
A: Everywhere! I’m based in the Cotswolds but I love to travel, and have had the pleasure of working in some stunning venues across the UK.
Q: I'm getting married abroad, can you help?
A: Absolutely! I have experience of working in France, Italy and Ibiza, but exploring new places is one of my favourite things to do. Destination weddings do entail a different set of logistics, but nothing is insurmountable, and my team and I are always able to rise to a challenge.
Q: How long do you require for set up?
A: This depends on the sorts of arrangements and installations you require for your big day. I typically like to have around 5 hours for set up, and may need longer for large scale or particularly elaborate pieces.
Q: Will you visit our venue before the big day?
A: Yes, it’s always really useful to see the spaces we have to play with in person and get ideas flowing.
