A couple of our fantastic reviews
"Its a rare gift to be able to turns dreams into a reality"
I'd been looking around in this area (Mid Sussex and beyond) for a really artistic florist and from what I have seen, you are far and away the best. I think your work is absolutely beautiful.
Call today to check availability.
"'Andrew and I both really clicked with Steph and Tim during our initial consultation meeting regarding our wedding and couldn't wait to get them on board for our upcoming wedding with their amazing eye for detail, evident in their workshop, and interpretation of our wishes for our wedding flowers. Unfortunately due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we have had to postpone our wedding and approached Steph and Tim about moving our wedding date. Steph and Tim have gone out of their way to reassure us during this time and have been flexible with accommodating our new wedding date which has alleviated some of the stress this has caused. We are so looking forward to our rescheduled wedding and Chirpee Flowers remaining an important part of the day.''

What are the forms of payment?
1. What do I need to supply at the consultation?
Ideally you will have a general idea of your budget, this is really important so that we can tailor our floral suggestions for you. A photo of your dress, full length if you would like a bespoke bouquet. If you have colour samples of your bridesmaids dresses that would be really helpful. If you have ideas of flowers, that's great, if not, please don't worry we can give you ideas and suggestions for seasonality and personalities.
2. I've found lots of ideas on Pinterest but I am on a tight budget - can you help?
Pinterest images are useful for gaining ideas to get started with ideas. Create an inspirational board to show suppliers your colours and styles you like. However saying that, a lot of images from Pinterest are from the USA and are of the luxury end of the market or "wish list" variety. In other words - super expensive! Ask your florist to see if they can supply different ideas tailored to your budget. Thats why its really important to know roughly how much you have to spend.
3. What happens if the flowers I've chosen are not available?
Good question! Flowers are bought daily at Auctions in Holland (unless they are locally grown), wholesale florists bid for what they want online and in person. Sometimes there can be a peak in demand for a certain colour or flower, especially wedding varieties.Therefore we ask that you accept that a second choice is needed (just in case) The majority of the time all orders are fine, but sometimes if there is really bad weather or petrol prices shoot up - so do flower prices and availability. Its a fresh product after all, so understandable. At Chirpee Flowers we will do our utmost to provide you with your flowers at the best price and quality.
4. Do you provide fresh or faux flowers?
We mostly work with fresh flowers but we can also provide high quality faux (artificial silk) flowers. Sometimes Brides love a replica made of their bouquet to keep.

Even better than I had hoped!
Absolutely amazing team, so happy to help, the flowers were perfect! We had a pre-covid plan but Steph and Tim were more than happy to adjust things! I met them with a vague idea, nothing set in stone, I had found a bouquet Steph had done previously which I absolutely adored. The rest they took care of, the style of my bouquet was based around the style of my dress and my bridesmaids had some beautiful flowers rings which also became decorations after the photos. If flowers are important to you Steph and Tim are who you need.Sent on 09/08/2020

We opted for silk flowers as we were flying to Marrakech for our wedding, and the quality was absolutely incredible. The button holes and flower crowns we ordered were the perfect compliment to my incredible bouquet with peacock feather accents. I cried when Steph first showed me, they were beyond all my expectations. Both Steph and Tim made the whole process easy and an incredibly enjoyable part of planning our wedding ! And the flowers travelled thousands of miles and still looked absolutely perfect !Sent on 18/10/2019
Chirpee Flowers's reply:Thank you so much Emma for that lovely review - it was such a pleasure! Thank you for trusting us to be creative with your brief, you looked amazing!

The most wonderful flowers
We cannot thank Chirpee Flowers enough for their most exquisite flowers at our wedding. We met with Steph and Tim early on to discuss our requirements and the designs they pulled together were more beautiful than we could have ever expected. My bouquet was even designed to match the style and shape of my dress. The flowers really brought our colour scheme to life and made the marquee feel so special. I couldn't recommend Chirpee Flowers more highly!Sent on 20/03/2018
