Things to bring with you:

PEOPLE: Bring along the people who matter – your husband to be, Mum, Mother-in-Law, Bridesmaids, Best Friend OR just yourself if you prefer to keep ideas a secret.

COLOUR SAMPLES:  If you’ve chosen your dress, bridesmaid dresses, bring along a small sample of fabric to help match colour schemes.

IDEAS, PICTURES: Brides love Pinterest – save your favourite ideas and bring your phone, iPad along to share them with us. Our Florist loves photographs/pictures of bouquets so that she can understand your floral requirements.

  • We will listen to your ideas, show you examples of weddings we have done at your venue or in your preferred style and then take them away to begin the exciting part of styling your wedding or event.
  • We can also put you in touch with local wedding services including wedding dresses, suits, photographers, cars etc. This service proves invaluable if you live outside the area.



We aim to get your bespoke quote out to you within 7 days. We will email this to you and follow up with a telephone call a few days later.

At this point we can ‘tweak’ any areas you need or discuss any ideas that you may not have considered in our initial consultation.



Sealing the deal and booking your date. Once you are happy with the designs and quotation, we can book the date. We have a booking form & terms & conditions to sign and a deposit can be paid. This is non- refundable, but is deductible from the final account. We offer a monthly payment plan, if you are a bride who prefers to pay along the way.
