We can accommodate all styles and sizes of wedding, whether you’re planning an elaborate celebration or an intimate occasion. They have experience working in a host of venues, from churches and restaurants, to castles and barns, ensuring they know the designs that perfectly suit each venue.
We can create all your flowers, including bridal bouquets, bridesmaids flowers, floral headbands, corsages, button holes and anything else you need. We will also dress your venue – whether you want a beautiful flower arch for the church, or fabulous table flowers.
We offer consultations seven days a week and will meet with you as many times as necessary. You’ll be appointed a personal wedding florist who will deal with all your enquiries and will be the florist that creates the displays for your wedding day. We will offer help and advice, taking into account your theme and budget and recommended colours, styles and shapes that will work for you.

What happens to the flowers after the wedding?
You're typically quoted a price that includes not only the flowers but also the vases or other containers you'll be renting to display the stems. This means that while those pretty blooms are yours to keep, the urns or candelabras are to be returned to us. If you're interested in re-purposing the arrangements for a day-after brunch, you'll want to discuss the details with your wedding florist. We can often work the additional cost of vases into your initial proposal.
