FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where in the country do you cover?
I'm based in Norfolk and work on weddings and events across the east of England. I'm happy to travel further afield, so get in touch to discuss your individual requirements.
When should I book you?
As soon as possible. I tend to get booked up 12-18 months in advance, so as soon as you know your venue and wedding date, get in touch and let's have a chat to get your date reserved.
How important is seasonality for wedding flowers?
I always encourage my brides and grooms to think seasonally. Working with the varieties that naturally bloom around the time of your wedding gives a host of interesting textures and tones that are organically gorgeous, and allows us to use primarily British grown flowers, too. I try to work with locally grown varieties wherever I can, sourcing from fabulous flower farmers right here in Norfolk.
I've seen something on Pinterest that I love; can you make it for me?
Pinterest is such a great place to gather inspiration, and I love to see your favourite styles, arrangements and bouquets. However, I'll never exactly recreate something that you’ve found online. Your flowers should be totally unique and utterly remarkable, so while I'm happy to use Pinterest and other mood boards for reference, your finished designs will be brand new and yours alone.
What are your prices and is there a minimum spend we should bear in mind?
This is always a tricky question to answer, as each wedding is priced individually depending on the complexity and scope of the arrangements I design for you. As a rough guide though, a minimum spend for personal flowers (including bride and bridesmaid bouquets and buttonholes) is £500, whereas for a full floral service including ceremony and reception arrangements, you should expect to budget around £2000, and more for large scale and elaborate installations.
How much contact should we expect during our wedding planning?
We can have as much or as little contact as you need. After the initial consultation we will have catch-up meetings in person or over the phone throughout the design process. I'll also make sure we organise a visit to your venue so you can envisage the proposed flowers in the spaces they're intended for. Flowers are a wonderful part of your wedding experience, and I want you to be as involved as possible.
Will you come to visit our venue?
Yes absolutely. Your choice of venue sets the tone for so many other areas of your wedding décor and design, and seeing it in person will help give me inspiration on how best to use the spaces available, and create flowers that really wow. Travel expenses will be incurred for venues more than 20 miles from Holt, Norfolk.
Our venue is a listed building, is this a problem?
I've worked in lots of listed buildings, and they always make for beautiful canvases for remarkable florals. Sometimes there are some restrictions about what can and can't be done, but I will make sure to liaise with your venue to find out any potential limitations, and will work within their guidelines to create something personal, bespoke and extraordinary.
How long do you need for set up?
Usually between 3-5 hours, but this will depend on the size and detail of the flowers for your wedding, and any time restrictions at the venue.
Do you provide the vases, vessels and other props?
Yes I have a selection available for hire. I also have great local prop hire companies I can recommend. Once the moodboards and floral designs have been approved, we can discuss props and vessels and look at the options that will suit you best.
