One of the best decisions we made for our wedding

We were and still are over the moon with the incredible florals Femme Petale created for our wedding. From start to finish, working with Gemma was a pleasure – she was professional, creative and full of ideas. She somehow took my very abstract 'brief' and gave me back exactly what I had been hoping for, and put in a lot of work to make it happen – she was the first supplier I saw the morning of our wedding and the last one I saw that night.

I lost count of how many compliments we got – so many people told me they were the best wedding flowers they had ever seen. I don't think I will ever want to stop staring at the photos of them. Walking in to see our pink cloud of gypsophila at the altar was the most magical experience and everything, from the pew ends (and I loved seeing these reused again on the top table chairs, what a great idea) to the bud vases and bouquets, was just absolutely perfect.

I know people think wedding flowers are expensive, and it's true they are, but every single penny was worth it and we would spend it all again. Thank you Gemma!

Thank you Gemma!

Gemma was so wonderful to work with for our East London wedding. Through just a handful of phone consultations and emails, Gemma immediately understood our vision and continued to work very independently, which was a huge relief because we were so busy dealing with all the other wedding suppliers. On the day of, we were blown away by the floral display - from the actual array of plants she chose to the vases she placed them in, everything looked exactly liked we had dreamed of and more. Thank you Gemma for everything!

So amazing… we used her twice!!!

Gemma is such a talented florist. She flowered our elopement in 2021 when we got married during COVID and then worked her magic again in 2022 at the same venue when we had a wedding party. She listened to what we wanted and made our vision come to life. I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. Beautiful flowers and super easy, friendly and professional to work with. Thank you Gemma!

Th best decision we made!

The first thing I want to say is that I can't recommend Gemma highly enough. If you get the chance - book her! Having Gemma on our team was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.
She listened so carefully to what we wanted (even after we changed our minds a few times!) and she got it completely right. We first decided to go to Gemma because of the way her packages are laid out on her website - they're really clear and informative (unlike other suppliers websites who we felt were aimed towards experienced wedding planners, rather than couples with no experience in booking a florist for an event). Then, after chatting with her, it was clear she was going to be perfect for us - she's so incredibly lovely, supportive and enthusiastic, but also knows exactly how to calm an anxious engaged couple at one of the most stressful time of their lives!
Seeing my wedding bouquet for the first time brought me to tears and that was only a taste of what was to come on the big day. Every single element of the flowers were perfect - from the beautiful petals down the aisle, to the arrangements on the tables. Gemma made our day look and feel so chic and magical and we're so, so grateful to her for sharing her amazing talent with us on our special day.

Sensational in every aspect

Gemma really pulled all the stops out, My flowers were INCREDIBLE!
My wedding ceremony was located in the woods (not the easiest place to set up, especially on a hot day) she made two gorgeous stands to create an archway, the ceremony was magical thanks to her.
My wedding theme was 'Spring flowers' I wanted everything extra colourful, she really delivered! my bouquet was sensational.
Gemma made the booking process very easy, she was fantastic to work with and I shall definitely be recommending her to everyone.

Simply amazing

Where to start in trying to describe just how amazing our wedding flowers were. Gemma just totally got our vision for the day and my style and made the planning seem so effortless especially as our arrangements changed at the last minute due to covid restrictions. My bouquet was absolutely stunning and I had so many comments on how unique and amazing the wedding flowers were. If you are looking for a truly unique wedding style - Gemma is the go to person she is so creative and just a lovely person to work with too. Lucie and Jamie.

Highly recommended

Gemma at Iris & Co deserves a hundred stars for all her hard work! I have worked with her a full handful of times now, and she is so dedicated to creating beautiful installations and arrangements for her couples.
So much care is taken to chose the right flowers or foliage, and she's not afraid of new challenges.
Gemma's personality is what makes Iris & Co such a great florist to turn to for your event, wedding and more!
I highly recommend her

They looked fantastic

Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding flowers. You did an incredible job and really bought together the whole wedding theme and feel with perfect colours and stylistic arrangements, they were really 'WOW!'. You were passionate and professional in every aspect and we knew we were in safe hands. Our guests were forever complimenting how fantastic the flowers looked. We could not have wished for more.
