TESTIMONIALS Pretty in pink
Richard and I would like to thank Clare and her team for the amazing flowers, bouquets and button holes they made for our wedding. We were so lucky to find such an amazing local florist in our own home town. We have now planted some of the beautiful plants in our garden so we can continue to enjoy them. We will certainly recommend you to our friends. Nikki & Richard Ward
