Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions and concerns. If there is anything that you would like to ask me that hasn't been covered here, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page.
What happens after the consultation?
After the consultation I will send you a detailed quotation (a proposal), including a description of each of the arrangements we discussed. The proposal will also include information on the deposit and payment terms.
We are working to a budget; does this affect the quality of my flowers and what we want to have?
No. I will work within your budget, giving you the best options and styles possible without compromising on quality.
How do we book you for our wedding flowers?
To reserve your wedding date, I ask for an initial deposit payment of £100.00 with the remaining balance due three weeks before the day of your wedding.
What should we expect running up to the wedding?
3-4 weeks before your wedding, I will contact you to run through your quotation to make sure it includes everything you will need for the day and to finalise any last few details.
1-2 weeks before your wedding I will reconfirm the delivery schedule letting you know what I will be delivering, where and when.
Will I have to collect my flowers or hired items on the morning of the event?
No, I operate a delivery and setting up service that comes as part of your day. Flowers and hired items can be delivered to both the bride and groom’s locations around 2 hours before the start of your ceremony, and I will set up in the morning at a pre-agreed time with yourself and the church and/ or venue. I can collect any hired items such as vases, stands, tea lights etc the next day or at a time and date mutually agreed between me and the venue.
What happens to the flowers after my wedding?
You can decide to keep the arrangements for yourself, gift them to your guests, or alternatively you may wish to donate them to a local charity or hospice (the Hospice of St. Francis would be my chosen local recipient but please let me know if you would like them donated elsewhere) . If you would like your flowers donated, then please let me know in advance and I will make arrangements to personally deliver them after your wedding.
