Fantastic classic modern floristry

We had TJ provide the floristry at our wedding in February 2024 at mulberry house. We had a slightly different set up to the usual wedding with an alternative seating plan and a huge amount of candles / glassware. Originally we felt obliged to fall into the bracket of what is very commonly done at weddings in terms of flowers but we asked to do something a bit different, with some exotic, out of season flowers to tie into our overseas legal ceremony and they showed a huge amount of flexibility to help us with this vision. The comms via WhatsApp really helped the process move quickly and Natalie/TJ dealt with our changes and demands really professionally - they definitely deliver on what the client asks for. Thank you for bringing our ideas to life!

they bought our ideas to life!

We recently got married at Mulberry House, Natalie, TJ and their team blew me away with their attention to detail, their visions and how quickly they could work to get this all up and running!
Their ideas are amazing and they are quick to reply to any questions you have!
I was wondering what to have on the day, I gave Natalie my ideas and she did not disappoint! I am still blown away by what they created! Thank you so much. I wish we could do it all again! Thank you so much

Tracie and Richard’s Wedding 21/7/23

We were recently married @Mulberryhouse. TJ and her team were recommended by the venue, so we thought we would go with them. Natalie contacted me and started a mood board we didn’t speak again for a while but when we did she remembered what we wanted and without any issues or stress everything was just perfect. I felt listened too but also was offered choices by sharing photographs to make informed choices. Our day came I met with TJ she worked late and hard to get everything ready for us. We married outside and it was so pretty and exactly how I had envisaged. They also decorated the wedding breakfast room again it was perfect they had just created our vision. We were so happy with everything and would totally recommend if you want a beautiful stress free day that looks amazing thanks guys, we were so happy.

Anything is possible! Stunning!

A huge thank you to the best group of talented, hard working, passionate and kindest people! Committed to delivering people their perfect wedding and then some!
Our day was left in their capable hands- we weren’t the most helpful bride a groom (a little too vague maybe and very laid back! Haha) but the team took our little ideas and made it a dream! They created an Amalfi coast theme for our wedding day and it was simply stunning! #amalfitomulbs
I watched an already beautiful space transform into a fairytale! There’s not many people who can do that!
I could not recommend the team enough! Thank you all!

Beautiful!

We had our wedding at Mulberry House and we had TJ Designer Group do the sashes on the the isle seats and a beautiful flower arch, then sashes on the wedding breakfast seats too and coloured napkins. They were so helpful showing us their designs and colours and helping us throughout. They came to set up the morning of our wedding and everything went so smoothly. We had the flower arch moved to inside the marquee for the wedding breakfast after the ceremony too which was a lovely touch. When it was all set up, everything made the whole place look so put together and atmospheric. We are so pleased with how it all came together, our wedding photos look wonderful with all the little details and flower arch! We would 100% recommend them!

Dream Team

TJ and her team are real life magicians. From our first ever meeting (over zoom in Lockdown Nov 2020) to our wedding day (Jul 2022), TJ was just incredible. She shared our vision and knew exactly what style of wedding we wanted (simple but elegant). We went with all white decor and flowers as it meant other things stood out more (our bridesmaids dresses, place cards etc). TJ has so much experience but will never force you into choosing decor / flowers / colours you don’t want. She will always go with your vision and create something wonderful with it. Being petite in height I did not want my bridal bouquet to be too much for me and make me look like I was holding a bucket! With TJ’s expertise I chose a Tear Drop style bouquet to help elongate my body. It was just beyond my wildest dreams and was simply stunning. I had so many compliments about my bouquet and am so glad I chose to have it dried and preserved so I can keep it forever.

Some tips I learnt from TJ when wedding planning:
- Set a budget realistic for you but be prepared to either up it a little or cut back a bit as prices of flowers and decorations have increased the last few years and you do not want to be disappointed / stressed the nearer to your wedding it gets if it’s not how you first envisioned.
- Flowers in taller vases are better for guests to be able to see and talk to each other more easily without a centre piece in their direct view.
- Keep all your suppliers up to date with wedding bits. TJ asked for things like: pictures of my wedding dress, our bridesmaid dress colour, groomsmen suits and colour, mother of the bride outfit etc. so she knows exactly what she is working with on the day.
- Keep your flowers and get them dried! It will be the nicest keepsake of your very special day.

We will be forever grateful to TJ and the team for all they did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives. It was perfect from beginning to end because of them and exactly what we wanted (and more!)

Quality service

TJ and Natalie were absolutely amazing from the minute we met them at an open day when we chose our venue. They were so open to listening to our vision of our wedding day and what we wanted as a couple and making sure it was reflected. During our final planning meeting they suggested changing our colour scheme and had on hand pictures to share with us. We went ahead and are so glad we did as it looked amazing. The flowers and details put into creating the centre pieces blew us away as even though they painted a good picture of what things would look like we were so impressed with the final result. Even down to suggesting lighting tips to pass onto the DJ which further reflected us as a couple. Very personalised service with highly talented, friendly, knowledgeable people! Would highly recommend.

Perfection

TJ Floral Designer & Cover IT Weddings - Natalie and TJ, where do we start? We (I say we when I really mean I!) didn’t have a clue what any wedding decor looked like let alone what I wanted, but from the extremely vague mood board ideas I have you, you can up with the most beautifully exquisite venue decor that matched my vision, which is impressive as I didn’t know what that vision was! The colour matching was perfect and nothing was too much trouble for you! The compliments I’m still receiving about the decor are testament to your incredible work! Thank you both again for all your support and contributing to making our day perfect! Shona and Lee Smith

All our guests have not stopped commenting on how amazing it all looked.

Thank you so much!

Total Delight!

I will never be able to thank TJ & Team enough for the truly magnificent job they did for my daughter's wedding! They took the image we had in our minds and turned it into reality. It really could not have been better.
There are not words enough to express my gratitude - the flowers were absolutely beautiful, the sight of it all really did 'take my breath away'. Thank you all so much x

Setting the scene for the most perfect day

Firstly TJs have been an absolute pleasure to work alongside, from picking the event decor to the floristry. TJs does it all!!!

We decided to use TJs as they were one of Mulberry House's recommended suppliers, we wanted to keep it simple by using the venue's vendor list as everyone had worked alongside each other for years. It may have been cheaper to go elsewhere, however we wanted to go for something we knew would work... and it certainly did! I wasn't worried at all.

From start to finish I felt supported and confident in respect to my vision being executed perfectly... and wow they just did that!!

Huge shout of to Natalie, her knowledge and experience was extremely valuable and much appreciated as I didn't really have a clue where to start.

Big love to you and the team, we had the most perfect day 💗

A-mazing fresh and bright wedding flowers

What can we say about TJ and her team? Only good things! The calm that was there, the quick thinking in times of panic, problem solving, listening to every detail, and generally making our dreams come true. TJ filled the brief and so much more. I was so impressed with the value for money as well. If I could do it all again I wouldn't change a single thing. The anticipation of waiting all the while through COVID, toying with the idea of cancelling the whole thing and doing something smaller when it was all delayed, and then it finally coming around to be so much more than we ever could have hoped for. As one of our amazing suppliers, you were there through it all with us too, always answering my (many) questions like it was no bother at all.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. You are truly amazing and the work you produce is stunning!

Love,
Amy and George Gooding
