Goes above and beyond

We are so glad to have chosen Dorothy Seed to supply flowers for our recent tipi wedding in Pembrokeshire. From the offset, nothing was too much for Dorina, who made the process of arranging wedding flowers easy from the word go. Dorina's process was entirely collaborative, from the initial moodboards, sharing of ideas, meetings in the stunning Newport Market, to the selection of flowers. I could 100% percent trust Dorina to bring our ideas to life and create wonderful displays for the tipi. In setting up the arrangements to taking them down, Dorina and her team were professional, welcoming and so easy to work with. It was a pleasure to have them play a part in our day, and I'd recommend them a hundred times over if you're looking for a florist to help bring your day to life.

Beautiful floral design, and fantastic to collaborate with!

I couldn’t be happier to have chosen Dorina (aka Dorothy Seed) as our wedding florist. She really understood and got excited about our vision, and the floristry she created was magical. She was also fantastic to work with - full of enthusiasm and energy, and putting so much love and care into her creations. I’d recommend her to anyone!

Perfection

Dorina absolutely delivered the brief for our daughter and son in law’s wedding. A wildflower meadow isn’t the easiest of requests but it was exactly what Dorina created for us.

She listens carefully, thinks carefully and works carefully. She genuinely wants to do her very best for you and her love for flowers is very clear and infectious.

The flowers were beautiful and the wildflower flower arch was a stunning backdrop to the wedding ceremony and the photographs.

The bouquets were so pretty.

She is very creative - coming up with great ideas and extra details. She is so skilful and such lovely warm, calm and happy person to have with you on your wedding day.

As she promises, everything is natural and nothing goes to waste. She separated and wrapped the flowers for us to take away the next morning.

Dorina provided beauty and colour and we could not have found a lovelier or more professional florist. Thank you so much. We recommend her without hesitation.

Wonderful winter wedding

Dorina was so helpful and friendly, keeping in touch throughout with designs and ideas and guiding us through everything.

We absolutely loved our beautiful flower arch, table centrepieces, gorgeous bouquets and all the lovely wearables - plus the fact it was all seasonal and sustainable, even for a winter wedding, was the icing on the cake.

All of our guests commented on how beautiful and unique our flowers were, and we’re so happy to have been able to take some home dried to relive and remember the day.

Would absolutely recommend this talented florist to anyone!

An exceptionally talented florist!

Dorina in such a talented florist and we are so glad we found her! Sustainability was a big part of our wedding and we wanted our flowers to be as sustainable as possible. We had an initial meeting with Dorina and we instantly clicked! She provided with pictures of how our flowers would look like and she was available for every questions and every doubts we might have. As a final surprise, she also donated a tree for us which is such a thoughtful and personal touch.
Planning a wedding can be stressful but when you find people like Dorina, you know you're in good hands!

Amazing flowers

I'm a difficult client, but Dorina was kind and patient. She listened and delivered exactly what I asked for. I loved the initial meeting, she asked all the right questions and then sent me a visual representation of what she would create for us. I absolutely loved our flowers. Highly recommend.

The most beautiful florist

I can’t thank or recommend the lovely Dorina enough for our beautiful flowers on our wedding day. She was so kind throughout our planning for our wedding and very experienced in the advice she gave us but at the same time allowed us to have complete control over the flowers we envisaged for our big day. I was totally drawn to dorina for her sustainability and the beautiful local wildflowers she sourced. They were breathtaking and my house is still full of several of them weeks on after our wedding. We made plans together, had laughs together and most of all Dorina delivered all of my flower dreams on our special day. I felt totally at ease with her from start to finish and she made our wedding day so special with her beautiful flowers. All my friends and family were totally blown away too. I was so glad to have her as part of our special day and would recommend her to any future bride and groom to be.

Incredible Florist with Amazing Flowers

If you need a florist who is passionate about their craft, is kind, and beyond helpful then you should use Dorothy Seed. Dorina was excellent throughout the whole process. I was completely uncertain of what I wanted beyond knowing the colours and one type of flower. Dorina expertly guided me through my options and provided me with the information I needed to make decisions. She even went above and beyond crafting something for my centrepieces that was a bit unusual. She matched my vision so well and I was thrilled with my centerpieces.

I am not the sort of person who ordinarily cares about my flowers but when Dorina brought my bouquet and my bridesmaids I was so excited i cried.

Thank you Dorina and your team

Peter and I are ever so grateful.

An Absolute Joy

It was an absolute joy to work with Dorothy Seed for our wedding flowers! From bouquets, to flower girl wands, maid of honor crowns, broken arches...there's nothing Dorina cannot create. We wanted our wedding to be bright and colourful - with the Groom wearing pink and the Bridal party in an array of pastels, Dorina curated the most beautiful flowers to compliment each and every person.

My two Nieces adored their wands that were hand-wittled, my Mother-in-Law a gorgeous corsage and my life-long best friend and Maid of Honour was made the most incredible flower crown.

With pretty much everyone within the Wedding party wearing different colours, the role of bringing us all together with our flowers was no easy task. Dorina, however, produced such a stunning array of flowers that complimented and lifted every little walkway, stretch tent, and outfit change that encompassed our wedding weekend. Even designing a broken archway that could be moved to different locations throughout the venue so that the flowers could be used over and over.

Her enthusiasm and passion goes above and beyond. It was truly a pleasure to watch you produce such beautiful creations for our special day. Thank you so much 💛

Amazing flowers!

Dorina was amazing from start to finish! She gave me so many ideas for my bouquets wedding flowers and went the extra mile. She allowed me to see the flowers before they were picked and I can honestly say I’ve made a friend for life with Dorina 😊

Wonderful Florist - Top class!

When my daughter Katherine met Dorina, she knew straight away she’d found her bridal florist for her wedding. She was absolutely right! We all instantly clicked with Dorina. She understands what the bride wants but also what works. Her knowledge of flowers and her passion for floral arrangement is superb. We got the chance to go to where the flowers are grown and had a wonderful time seeing all the beautiful flowers and Dorina explained how the flowers would be structured and how long they would last for the day and evening. She gave ideas on what’s best for the little flower girls’ hair and baskets. All the time though she was very aware of what the bride wanted, she made Kat and everyone else feel special. The bridal bouquet was exactly what Kat wanted, and much more. The bridesmaids bouquets and little flower girls hair slides and baskets were simple, delicate and pretty. She dressed the cake beautifully. It was all natural, romantic and beautiful. We challenged her at the last minute with making an arrangement with tropical flowers that were flown over from the Seychelles and she made a beautiful welcoming piece at the entrance. We had no hiccups , just lots of fun. Dorina listens, knows her flowers, very talented, fun and delivers. Thanks Dorina.

Bristol Wedding in April, UK

Dorina has been an amazing support during the planning process for my wedding day! I couldn't thank her enough for making my wedding the most special day in my life. She has been extremely patient and flexible, helping to choose all the flowers for my bukee, venue flowers and flower pin for my husband. Being particularly detail oriented myself, Dorina has understood exactly what I was after and has worked with me to achieve all of my ideas. If you are looking for professionalism combined with creativity and friendliness, Dorothy Seeds is exactly what you are after! Without her help and support throughout, the day wouldn't been the same
