As a Freelance Florist I am in an enviable position that I don’t have a shop to manage or large overheads to pay – this allows me to be flexible in how I work and offer a really competitive price across all my flower prices. This doesn’t mean that I compromise on any aspect of the work – far from it, I go the extra mile to ensure my customers, whether it be a neighbour wanting a hand-tied or a bride wanting bouquets, table centres and button holes, are extremely happy with their flowers.
I’m also very lucky in that a lot of the wedding work we get is by word of mouth and recommendations. This might be through a venue, where I have frequented many times before and they have been happy with how I have decorated the venue, discreetly been and dropped off vases, added foliage to staircases or dropped off button holes for the groom’s entourage.
Before I have even met with a bride I often know what a venue will need to lift the colours of the room or enhance the table settings to create a colourful, elegant ambience. By understanding the bride’s expectations for her day and the chosen theme, I can suggest flowers that are in season (and therefore can be priced competitively) and how we can complement with the colour theme, the brides dress, bridesmaids dresses and the suits.
We can inspire further thought on inclusion of flowers in hair, alongside the cake or to decorate a walk way or entrance. Once a budget has been agreed I may meet the bride (and groom) two or three times before the big day, once vases have been sourced or a trial centre piece has been created.
On your wedding day you will hardly see me, and I mean that in a good way. I make my way to the wedding parties addresses or hotels dropping off button holes and bouquets. I drop flowers at the church or venue long before the wedding party arrives and if you move between church and reception, we transport the flowers for you. This allows you to enjoy your day without any distractions.
