PURE PERFECTION What to expect from us
Following your enquiry, either in person, by phone or through our website you will be invited in for a free, no obligation consultation at a mutually convenient time.
During this consultation, we discuss your venue(s), your ideas, your likes and dislikes. Then look at any swatches and/or pictures you bring with you and talk about how you feel your day will come together. We can then show you different combinations of beautiful flowers from our stock so that you have a visual aid to the discussion. Time taken on this depends on the size of your wedding but consultations usually take around an hour. Once we have taken your brief you are free to go and leave the rest to us!!! This is when all the behind the scenes work takes place.
“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work”
OWNER Behind the scenes
All the elements from the largest items down to single buttonholes are placed onto a spreadsheet to enable us to work out the exact quantities required to complete each design. We always allow for extras to ensure that each bloom is perfect for your special day. We can then work out the cost which is itemised on a typed quote and then emailed to you within a week of your consultation. At this stage nothing is set in stone and we usually leave you alone then for a week or so to allow you to discuss the quote in the comfort of your own home but do ask that you let us know whether or not you would like to go ahead. A small, non-refundable deposit secures your day once you have decided that you would like us to fulfil your wedding flower dream. You will then not hear from us for a while but you can rest assured that the behind the scenes work is still going on. We ensure that the flowers you have chosen are available and at their best for your special day. We source any containers and other sundries to ensure that we get them at the best possible price and at the best quality, then two weeks before your wedding date the shop becomes a hive of wedding activity - we order your flowers for delivery at different stages to ensure that each bloom is open to showcase its beauty to maximum effect, they are then all conditioned and taken care of in ways specific to each type of flower and foliage.
Through this circular lock up, the colour represents the four seasons
Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.
Next comes the exciting bit, it’s all hands on deck and we start to make your designs. This can take many hours and we can often be found in the shop late into the night enjoying copious amounts of coffee and cake whilst we work! Once completed, the bridal flowers and arrangements are packaged ready for delivery to your home and your venue.
We take great care to make sure that they arrive safely, our drivers are fully trained in transporting such a precious cargo. We then concentrate on setting up your venue making sure everything looks its very best for your special day. We look forward to meeting and working with you.
