HOW IT WORKS

LET'S TALK WEDDINGS

 Communication is key to successful collaboration and creativity... we understand as a modern couple you are juggling planning a wedding, work and family.. therefore we try to keep everything simple... below is a guide to how we do things... 

Complimentary Consultation

Great! Our consultations are the perfect place to start your wedding planning, we work with couples on a one to one basis and make sure that their floristry and styling fully reflects the day they have wished for. We can work to most budgets so please come say hello. 

The consultations are free and there is no obligation to book.

Personal design

Following your consultation, a basic design will be forwarded directly to you based on your budget, colour scheme and the seasonal blooms discussed.

 

To secure the team's service, a 25% non-refundable retainer fee will be requested. This secures your date in our diary and enables us to start sourcing accessories, commence design work including mood boards and pre-wedding work in advance for your wedding. 

 

We appreciate that during your wedding planning process some ideas will develop, possibly change. Two months prior to your wedding you will be invited to a one to one meeting to discuss your design in full, once the details have been clarified an updated design and invoice will be forwarded for you to sign off.   

All About You

Weddings are the culminating event of your love, the celebration of your being, the moment of gathering where the memories of connection to self, others, and nature are made.

We want you to gasp, shed a happy tear and enjoy the feeling of never wanting to put your bouquet down... well it is going to be in nearly as many images on the day as you! We will discuss colours, size, themes, ribbons, twine and explore so many ideas until you feel excited about your bouquet. 

 

We want you to fall in love with your bridal bouquet on the day. 

THE DETAILS

We stand out from the crowd with our attention to detail, environmentally friendly naturally dyed cheesecloth table runners, reclaimed and eco-sourced candlesticks with soy candles, antique candelabras and natural napkins are just some of the beauties we have in stock for you to hire. 

All our items are hired for one day only, delivered the morning of your wedding and collected by prior arrangement at your venue or location early the following morning. 

Think of us as wedding fairies who create floral magic...

Green gifting

What is "Green Gifting'  after noticing beautiful wedding flowers were being abandoned or sent to landfill following the wedding day Donna Hartley-Redfearn created this fabulously kind and loving service.

If you are flying away on honeymoon and have no further use for your beautiful blooms, we will collect all your flowers the morning after your wedding, restructure them into posies and deliver them personally to two locations for residents and families to enjoy.. 

We've selected a local hospice in Durham where the flowers are placed in both main reception and residents rooms

A care home for stroke and dementia patients, where all communal areas are dressed with your flowers to bring a little home from home to the building. 

This is a service we offer completely free of charge to both parties, we see this as the most beautiful way to see flowers enjoyed for weeks. 

Please let us know at your final meeting if "Green Gifting" is something you would like to do.
