We like to do things a little differently at Bottom of the garden. We work from a 150ft workshop in our backgarden, this allows us to have lower overheads and reduce our wastage. We take the approach that each wedding no matter how large or small is equally important and therefore we only book one wedding per day. This allows us to fully focus on our couples and thier requirements. We offer all of your traditional style flowers but can also offer a modern twist. But we love the unusual, we have completed many weddings with what are considered strange or unusual items or requests. Some of the best weddings are the most relaxed and intimate. Just remeber it's your day so do it your way! Embrace everything you love and makes you as a couple unique, thats why we take the time to get to know you and try to include as many elements personal to you as we can. As a florists we have a bit of a war on waste and try to keep this as minimal as possible. So we use locally sourced products where we can, british flowers as much as possible and as little plastics as humanly possible. We also have a clause in our contracts asking for persmission to remove any flowers left at the venue and repurpose them. We re arrange them and deliver them to our local Macmillan unit and dementia care home.
We offer bridal flowers, groomsparty flowers, Venue flowers, church flowers, living arches, tree hire, floral arches, moon gates, prop hie, glass hire,car ribboning service, vehicle florals, confetti and favours. To name but a few, we also offer DIY boxes of flowers and a setting up, clear down service for our morehands on couples.
We cover primarily Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset, but we do travel outside of these areas covering Scotland, Ireland & Europe. Travel within these areas is usually organised on a set fee basis, which would be covered within your outline contract/quote and then in details within your formal contacts.
We do not take massive deposits! We take a £50 save the date deposit to secure your day and our services. The balance would then be due 14 days prior to the wedding. We do also offer a payment plan service to allow you to spread the cost.
Don't forget we offer a Free consulation service and are availalbe one on one right the way through to your big day.
We look forward to meeting you to discuss your special day
