    Excellent!

    We couldn’t recommend Elise and her team enough, our flowers for our wedding day were so beautiful, we were so incredible happy with them, the service we received was excellent.

    Autumnal Woodland Fairytale Flowers

    From the very first meeting, Elise really gets to know you as a couple and the vision you have. Elise is fantastic at what she does- so professional, creative and organised. Our flowers were incredible and we had so many lovely comments from people. They were even better than we imagined, so beautiful, autumnal and elegant- they really made our day.

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Charlotte, thanks so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. I'm so pleased we exceeded your already great expectations and that you were both so happy with everything. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and on your flowers. Wishing you all the happiness in your marriage! Elise xx

    Simply amazing!

    Where do I even start?!

    The creativity and skill is something I can't even put into words and Elise really made sure every single flower, bouquet and table centre was perfect. From the moment I first met her, I could see firsthand her dedication and excitement in what she does for her clients. It goes beyond more than just providing flowers, it's joining in with the excitement of planning and she really makes the effort to get to know you, the theme of the wedding and how you envision your flowers. Her professionalism and communication are just outstanding too and she radiates passion through everything she does - this is so evident in the flowers she creates.

    I'll never forget the moment she arrived to deliver my bouquets to me, I simply cried with happiness to see her stunning creations. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Elise and her wonderful team for making our day so perfect!

    Florescence's reply:

    Aaah, what a lovely review Amy! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it. I genuinely loved working on your flowers - such a gorgeous mix of colours! A real pleasure. And I'm totally thrilled that you were just so happy with every element of our service. Reviews like yours (not just the words but the actual emotions behind them) really do make all the hard work worth it. There's nothing better than making someone so happy! Elise xx

    Beautiful flowers perfect service

    We were feeling quite down when we met Elise , worrying about all the covid restrictions which might or might not be in place for our wedding. Elise was so enthusiastic and excited for our wedding that she helped us get excited again!

    We didn't have a clue what we wanted to begin with but by talking with Elise she managed to capture both our personalities perfectly in the floral arrangements and button holes.

    My bouquet ended up being one of my favourite things that we purchased for the wedding. It was so stunning and beautiful! We had a few bumps on the week leading up to the wedding with important guests not being able to make it due to catching covid but one thing I didn't have to stress about was the flowers.

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Anna!

    Well, if the one thing you don't stress about is your flowers, then I'm a very very happy florist! This is why we put so much effort into reassuring our clients that we're on the ball. Weddings can be stressful enough, without covid disruption on top. And we've found all our clients really appreciate the reassurance that everything is under control our end, no matter what life throws at you in the run up to your wedding. Having happy, calm clients really matters to me and my team.

    I remember you saying how I'd helped reignite your excitement at the time of your consultation and I'm so pleased you've reminded me of this. It's good to know my crazy enthusiasm is so appreciated! Thank you!

    So thanks much for writing this lovely review. Not just the words but the sentiment behind it really does mean so much! Wishing you so much happiness in your marriage.

    Best wishes,

    Elise xx

    Having Elise as our florist has been a dream

    From the first conversation we had with Elise at a wedding fair we knew that she was the right florist for us. Her passion for floristry was really clear as was her warmth and friendly demeanor; we knew that our wedding was in safe hands. Talking through the options for our wedding flowers was fun and exciting and Elise put together a really clear package together for us. Due to COVID we had to postpone our wedding by a year and throughout the stress of rearranging the wedding we really valued Elise's quick and clear communication style. On our wedding day itself Elise and her team did an amazing job of decorating the venue and letting us know how the button holes etc were to be worn, so that we had no questions unanswered on the day. The flowers she suggested perfectly reflected the dreamy romantic and a little bit quirky look we were going for and were absolutely stunning! We will definitely be recommending Florescence to our friends and family.

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Emma, thanks so much for your lovely words. Reviews like yours make our job even more enjoyable! I'm so happy you were happy with everything and wish you every happiness in your marriage! Best wishes, Elise xx

    Cannot recommend Elise enough!

    I don't even know where to start with Elise and her team at Florescence. I fell a bit in love with Elise when I first met her at a wedding fayre, her passion and energy is contagious and I knew she would be the perfect person to do our wedding flowers. Like many couples we postponed 4 times and Elise was with us every step of the way with kindness and compassion - even though I'm sure she was going through an enormous amount of stress herself. When it came to the actual day I trusted Elise enormously - she checked small changes with me but I was very happy to be lead by her and her enormous amount of talent. The flowers were absolutely STUNNING, we had so many compliments on them, and I will forever be grateful for them. Cannot recommend Florescence enough x

    Florescence's reply:

    Wow Hannah! Thanks so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. It really does mean so much to me that you were so happy with everything, even when dealing with the frustrating and upsetting postponements. And thank you for acknowledging how stressful things were our end too. It was stressful but I was more concerned for my clients and I'm so so happy you got to have your wonderful day in the end. It's been a genuine pleasure working with you and I wish you so much happiness in your marriage! Elise xx

    Amazing from start to finish


    Elise and her team were amazing from start to finish. We didn’t have a massive budget for our flowers but during our consultation Elise worked with the budget we had given. What can I say, the flowers were absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much!!! Very grateful indeed. Would highly recommend!!! Xx

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Samantha, thanks so much for writing this lovely review. It really does mean the world to us that our clients are happy - at the very least. Working to your budget is paramount to what we do and I'm thrilled that we met it and created such beautiful flowers for your special day. Wishing you all the best for your happy marriage! Elise xx

    Elise is wonderful

    Elise is a genius. From my useless description, Elise was able to create exactly what I wanted. She knew exactly which flowers/foliage would give us the rustic, wintery vibe we were going for - all while keeping within the budget we gave her. In the months/weeks running up to our wedding, Elise made sure we knew we hadn’t been forgotten. She is thorough, organised, and wonderfully creative. Our flowers were so beautiful and I’m so so happy with how they turned out. We would highly recommend Florescence!

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Sarah, what a lovely review - thank you for taking the time to write it. Your descriptions can't have been useless as you conveyed exactly what you wanted for me to be able to interpret it! (But thanks for the 'genius' comment - I'll definitely take that!! Haha!) I'm so happy you were both so happy with everything. It really is why I/we do what I/we do. It was a real pleasure working with you and preparing your flowers. Wishing you so much happiness in your marriage! Elise xx

    The flowers of my dreams!

    I will be forever grateful that I went to a wedding fair where Elise was. Initially enticed by her beautiful and artistic flower arrangements, and then won over by her unbelievable happy and passionate personality. You can tell that she absolutely loves what she does, and as a result, we ended up with the most stunning flowers.

    Elsie arranged a consultation with us so we could come up with a brief. Every detail was important to her - the themes of the wedding, the colours, our personalities, and she was full of suggestions for flowers and foliage that would work well together. I had an idea in my head what my bouquet would look like (already expecting wonders), but it was even better! I didn’t want to put my bouquet down all day, and it even came with me and my husband on our honeymoon.

    Elise was so much fun to work with. Planning a wedding isn’t always a walk in the park, but the flower part for me was so much fun, and easy! Elise is so flexible and worked to our budget. I cannot recommend her and Florescence enough!

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Emily, thanks so much for taking the time to write this lovely review! It was such a pleasure working with you and preparing your flowers for you so I'm absolutely thrilled that you were so happy! It's just the most important thing to me and my team.
    Wishing you all the happiness in your marriage and for the future. Best wishes, Elise xx

    Beautiful flowers that caused me to well up when Elise delivered

    Elise and her team at Florescence were absolutely fabulous right from when I first reached out with an enquiry through to delivery and set up of the flowers. Elise was very patient with a few changes I wanted to make nearer to the time of our wedding with nothing being too much trouble. I had a lot of compliments from guests on the whole set up on the day and how everything tied in beautifully to our theme. Elise delivered my and my bridesmaids bouquets to the bridal suite whilst we were getting ready, and in that moment it all started to feel very real and caused me to well up with emotion (the first time of many throughout the day!). Thank you Elise!

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Charlotte, thanks so much for your lovely review! I do love it when my clients well up with happy tears. It means we've gone over and above, exceeded your expectations and really moved your emotions, so the flowers have done their job! I'm so happy you were so happy and wish you so much happiness in your marriage! Best wishes, Elise xx

    Perfect Wedding Flowers

    If I could give Elise 10 stars, I would! Elise did my sister's and best friend's wedding flowers and there was no way we were choosing anyone else! She is professional, efficient and so hard working. We had multiple changes to our wedding plans (thanks COVID...) but this didn't phase Elise. We gave her a few key words and she created our perfect bouquets with lovely explanations of how meaningful each chosen flower was. Our flowers were beautiful and exactly what we wanted, even with 4 days notice when we changed our date for the 3rd time! Elise's passion and care for her work shines through and she deserves all of the praise and awards she has achieved. Put your trust in her and you won't be disappointed. We wholeheartedly recommend Elise. Thank you!

    Florescence's reply:

    Wow, what a review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write that Sarah. I'm over the moon that you're happy with everything. After such an insane year and being starved of weddings and flowers (like you, thanks COVID), it was such a pleasure to work on your flowers and the sudden short notice was actually a lovely challenge that I so relished! I wish you so much happiness in your marriage and will hopefully see you and your friends/sister at another wedding I can prepare the flowers for! Elise xx

    Mrs Johnstone

    We met Elise at a wedding fair and never looked back, she couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. As a person (my husband the same!) who hasn’t a creative bone in her body Elise was marvellous. She visited us personally and chatted to us both in order to understand what we liked and didn’t, from here she came up with various suggestions and ideas for us to consider. We made changes along the way, nothing was too much of a bother!

    On the day my beautiful flowers arrived just as agreed and on time, wonderfully fresh too. I had a lot of guests comment on the freshness of the flowers, wither it was the bouquets or other decorations. They lasted very well for the whole day and for several afterwards. Guests took them home and enjoyed them running up to Christmas which I was pleased about.

    Having a local family run business support our wedding was definitely the right choice, the personal service was excellent. Everything we received was actioned by Elise herself, emails and texts/WhatsApps answered in a very timely and efficient manner. As someone who is a fan of a prompt reply, Elsie was just the ticket for me as a bride!

    Thank you for making our day so lovely ?

    Florescence's reply:

    Hi Mary, thanks for your lovely and kind words. It was a sincere pleasure working with you and on your wedding flowers and I loved your choices - wintry but fresh! So gorgeous! And I'm also so pleased you were so happy with our service. Making our clients so happy genuinely makes us so happy! xx

    Brilliant service from start to finish

    Elise provides a truly top-class service all the way from the planning until the wedding day. At the very first meeting, Elise spent so much time going through so many options and details to make sure the flowers were absolutely perfect. You are able to completely trust Elise, she has her vision of how all the separate flowers/foliage will come together and I was not disappointed in the slightest when your day comes around after months of planning. When I saw the flowers, all assembled on the wedding day, they just blew me away and were absolutely perfect. Throughout the whole process her communication was brilliant where she definitely puts you in ease and I didn’t have to worry about the flowers at all as they were in a wonderful safe pair of hands. I would highly recommend Elise to any who requires her services, she brought so much joy throughout the planning and on the day itself. Thank you Elise! x

    Florescence's reply:

    Aaah, Victoria! I'm completely and utterly thrilled that you were so happy with the service and flowers you received from us. Reviews like yours make all the hard work worth it. Making people happy is absolutely what drives me and the team here and if you're happy, we're happy! Thanks for taking the time to write such heartfelt words. It means the world to me. Elise xx
