Do you do wedding packages?
We believe in tailoring our florals and all of our wedding services for every one of our couples. Every flower is unique, each design bespoke and every request we receive is for the celebration of an incomparable love story. One price that fits all can’t cover these special circumstances.
How long have you been a floral designer?
My flower love story began growing flowers at my parents farm and I have been lucky enough to work with flowers for most of my adult life. I love what I do and have owned my own flower and event company in the UK, worked in top hotels, and provided luxury florals for weddings and events of all styles and colours. Every event has been special, and each couple unique.
Where do you work?
We work in South West France and are based close to Bordeaux and Bergerac, but we are happy to take commissions throughout France and beyond.
What are my next steps if I want to book any of your services?
Initially please email us with your wedding date and I will send you our questionnaire. Then we can schedule a call or zoom consultation. We will prepare an initial quote and we will need a deposit to reserve your date.
I’ve had a few quotes, some cheaper for the same items, why is yours more expensive?
We quote a fair price to make a living and do an excellent job for you. We have many years of experience and are committed to proving amazing florals, service and commitment. We are very happy with the prices we quote and the service and the joy we bring.
How are wedding flower costs calculated?
There are many factors to consider in calculating the costs, the type of flowers you would like, their availability, the weather, the season, although this may not be a guarantee for a lower cost, (for example in peony season, peonies are greatly sought after which drive the prices up), we aren’t guaranteed prices in advance and we only use the best quality flowers to survive beautifully in the heat., we also have to take into account amount if time required to create your designs, the amount of helpers required, delivery and collection logistics. Labour costs and accessories required to male the designs also have to be taken into consideration.
How much do wedding flowers cost?
Most couples spend around 10%-20% of their total wedding budget but ultimately it depends how important flowers are to you and how much their part in the decor of your day means to you. Some spend much more, others a little less. Every wedding is unique, as are the flowers used and the designs made from them. It is important for you to share your budget with your designer so that suggestions are kept in line with your budget and dreams aren’t dashed when your budget won’t stretch to elaborate designs that you’ve set you heart upon. Please contact us to find out more.
How do you describe your floral style?
Very much the same as when someone asks me what it my favourite flower. One day my style is decadent and my designs are overflowing with flowers, the next organic and unstructured, another bohemian, then elegant and refined. When you love flowers, you can create anything and love it as much as the previous. Everything is exciting and new every time and we’d love to share our floral passion with you.

What is dry hire?
