Frequently asked questions
IS THERE A MINIMUM SPEND?
No! That's the great thing about our Ready to Wear range, you can order as little or as many arrangements as you like.
WHEN DO I NEED TO ORDER MY WEDDING FLOWERS BY?
We need a minimum of 7 days’ notice for any flowers ordered for your wedding. Ideally, the earlier the better though as this takes any stress away from you to know that your flowers are booked in. One of the team will be in contact with you once you have made your order to answer any questions you many have.
IS DELIVERY AVAILABLE?
Yes for an additional fee with in 15 miles of po17 6e
How far in advance should I book you?
Your wedding flowers are likely to form a key part of your décor, so I recommend getting in touch as soon as you've booked your venue and set your date. Generally booking is 12-18 months in advance to avoid disappointment. Key dates such as Easter and bank holidays get booked up very quickly.
Is seasonality important in your work?
Yes! Flowers are at their best during their peak season and it is lovely to try and reflect the seasons through your arrangements, nothing beats using British seasonal flowers. I am a firm believer in grown not flown when it comes to your florals. Using seasonal florals means you are using things that are at their peak in size, condition and scent.
Will you come to visit our venue?
We can discuss this at your consultation. I have extensive knowledge of the venues in the area so this may not be necessary however I am happy to meet you at your venue. This incurs a small charge to cover travel and time.
I generally cover Portsmouth and the surrounding areas heading to the New Forest in the west across to West Sussex up to Petersfield and every were in between.
Where do you source your flowers?
I have several trusted suppliers that I have worked with for many years. My wholesaler purchases from the UK, Holland and beyond, I source my seasonal flowers from Hampshire growers as much as I can and dip into my own cutting garden, my Dahlias are my pride and joy.
Will it be just you working on our flowers, or do you have a team?
Generally, it will be myself creating your florals. However for larger weddings and events I have a trusted team of freelancers that work with me, but all under my close supervision.
Where and when can we meet for consultations?
Initial consultations are held in my studio just outside Portsmouth by appointment, where we will talk through all your requirements and look at various containers, props, portfolios and flowers.
Saturday appointments are very limited as I'm often out on site or delivering on a Saturday morning. Evening appointments are available.
How do I pay?
I require a £100 non-refundable deposit to secure the date. The balance is required 2 weeks before the wedding.
Do You deliver?
Yes, I deliver to the main bridal party and the venue. Additional delivery addresses may incur an extra charge.
Do you have much wedding experience?
Yes, weddings and events are my real passion and I have over 35 years' experience in the field. Everything from a small intermit wedding to a large venue with 8 bridesmaids.
