Flowers can be used in a huge variety of ways for your wedding, sometimes in small quantities simply to reflect a theme, and sometimes in larger quantities to help set it. The bouquets and arrangements you decide to have will depend very much on your own personal taste and budget.

I have a great deal of experience in designing wedding flowers and can offer you good, practical advice about the best way to achieve the effect you want.
If your choice is a simple posy or the most exquisite shower bouquet using exotic varieties, all our work is of the highest standard using only the best quality flowers.
What the florist needs to know
Theme and style of the wedding
What are the surroundings like? (both for the wedding itself and the reception.) Is it formal or informal? Classic or Modern? What will the bridal gown look like? What mood are you trying to create? These are all vital clues, which will help the florist design the appropriate style for you.
We would be happy to help and advise you to achieve a beautiful look within your budget.
The colour scheme
Are there any colours which ought to be included or avoided? What colour are the bridesmaids' dresses, the groom's waistcoat, the tablecloths and chair covers at the reception? Swatches of material are ideal for getting the perfect match but failing that, a photograph or even a colour match from a DIY store will help.
Shapes and sizes
What age are the bridesmaids? How tall are they? Are there any other attendants to think about (perhaps a page-boy or a matron of honour)?
If the bride or bridesmaids are having flowers in their hair, their hairstyle may affect how the flowers can be fixed and what style of head-dress will be appropriate.
The Wedding Venue
How large is the venue? What is the lighting like? If the wedding will be celebrated in a church, synagogue, mosque or temple, are there any particular customs or requirements which we should know about?
Whatever the venue, we can assist in making your day a huge success.
Some of the previous venues we have provided wedding flowers and displays for include:
How large is the room or marquee? Do you want table arrangements and if so, how many? What is the background like, what colour and what material? Do you want any arrangements for the car?
Bombard us with information
The more we know about your plans for the wedding, the easier we'll find it to give you exactly what you want. Pictures, photographs, sketches, colour guides - it all helps.
Make sure you leave plenty of time before the big day to arrange your flowers. Even the largest florists cannot manage many weddings on the same day and they are often booked up for months in advance at busy times of the year.
On your wedding day
On the wedding day we will deliver the bouquets directly to you approximately two hours before the wedding and install all of the flower arrangements at your chosen venue.
A final thought . . .
Flowers also make an ideal thank-you gift to bridesmaids, mothers and others who have helped you with all the planning and organisation that goes into a wedding. You can arrange these when ordering your wedding flowers for the big day or even send them afterwards while on your honeymoon.
