Planning a wedding can be a minefield and most couples haven't done it before so I expect you will have loads of questions about how it all works.

 

Below you'll find the answers to the questions I get asked the most from my couples but if you have any more questions please just get in touch, I'm always here to help.

What is your enquiry process?

Start by filling out the contact form on my website. I can then check availability for your date and send you some further information and a link to book a consultation call with me. Once we’ve had an in depth chat and you’ve shown me any inspiration images or moodboards, I will send you a detailed proposal with prices.

What is the booking process?

Once you’ve received your proposal you can come to me with any questions. If you want to change anything at that stage we can tweak things as much as you like. When you’re happy with your overall design I will send you a booking form to sign electronically and ask for you to pay the booking deposit at that stage.

How do we stay in touch once we’ve booked?

Every couple is different so I take my lead from you really. If you want to have a call or a zoom to catch up or discuss anything I’m always here to help. Otherwise, I will be in touch about 6 weeks before your wedding day to check over all the final details.

Do we pay a deposit to secure the date?

Yes. I ask for a deposit of 20% of the total amount to be paid when confirming your date.

When do we make other payments?

The next payment of 40% of the total amount is due to be paid 6 months before the event and the remaining balance is due one month before the wedding date.

How do we get our Bouquets/Buttonholes on the day

Depending on where you’re getting ready in the morning, I will usually bring your bouquets to you so you have them for getting dressed. This might mean me bringing them to the venue if you are getting dressed there. Buttonholes are usually left in the ceremony space to be collected on arrival or delivered to you in the morning if you are having a church wedding.

What happens on the day?

My team and I will bring everything we need to your venue and set up everything in your design. If something can’t be set up until after the ceremony or anything needs to be moved from the ceremony to the reception space, your venue will usually handle this and I will handover to them. If for any reason they can’t move things around, I can arrange to help with the turnaround but this must be arranged in advance.

What happens to everything the next day?

Most venues will carefully clear everything away into a specific area for collection the next day. Someone from my team will come in the morning and take away anything you hired from us. The flowers are yours to keep so we will leave arrangements for you to take home or give away.

How do we check availability for our date?

Get in touch using the contact form on my website and let me know as much information as possible. If I already have something booked within 3 days of your wedding it might still be possible to help but I need to know a bit more about what you’re looking for so I can work out if I have the right team available and can offer you the excellent level of service I have set as our standard.

How far in advance should we book with you?

At the moment, my diary is open until the end of March 2026 so if your date is within that time then please don’t hesitate. Popular dates can get booked up well in advance so please don’t leave it too long. If you’re not sure what you want yet then we can look at securing the date for you and working on the design along the way. If your date is after March 2026 then we can still start a conversation but I won’t be able to guarantee pricing.

Do you have a minimum spend?

No. I don’t have any specific rules for a minimum spend but smaller orders are more tricky.

As I am an event florist, I don’t have an outlet to sell excess stock after the event. Flowers are sold in wholesale quantities so if I have to buy 20 stems of something then I need to cover those costs. Because of this it’s difficult to offer just a bridal bouquet and a buttonhole for example but we can always have a conversation about this.

Is there a delivery charge?

Yes, we charge for the time taken to deliver, collect and the set up time at the venue as well as a mileage charge. If the event requires more than one person then we charge for the time of each member of the team.
