What area do you cover?

We cover an area of an approx. 30 mile radius of Stoke Climsland, Cornwall. This would cover Exeter throughout the south west to Bodmin.

How much notice do you need to have?

Our high level of personalization and attention to detail means we will only accept one Wedding per day. Catherine creates the designs herself and feels that the Bride and Groom deserve her full attention on their special day. As a guide we suggest you contact us at least six months before the Wedding to arrange your free consultation. However, in order to avoid disappointment we recommend that you book your date with us as soon as possible.

What should I bring to the consultation?

We want your flowers to be exceptional so bring as much information as possible. For example pictures of your dress and the Bridesmaids dresses are a must, also any fabric samples and pictures of flowers that you particularly like. Some brides like to create a mood board full of pictures and colours that help to inspire their day.

When are you available for consultations?

We can offer consultations on a day, time and date to suite you. We are quite happy to arrange consultations for Weekends and evening at a place convenient for you. To book your free, no obligation, consultation please call Catherine on 07900 894716.

Who will create my bouquet?

Catherine knows just how important the bouquet is to any bride and therefore creates every bouquet personally. She will also run your original consultation so by the time of wedding will know exactly what your dreams and thoughts are over your bouquet.

Can I make changes after I have placed my order?

We know that your plans often change so you can make as many alterations as you require up to two weeks before the Wedding. There is no charge to change your order. A final invoice will be issued after our final meeting two weeks before the Wedding.

What payment methods do you accept?

Cash or Cheque.

Where is your shop?

We specialise in flowers for weddings and events, rather than retail. This means we don’t have the costly overheads of a shop and can offer you both specialism and real value for money. We buy our flowers fresh to order and our wholesalers deal with the growers directly; this ensures you will always get the freshest flowers possible.

Do you charge for vase hire?

No one likes hidden costs so all our prices include vase hire. We will deliver the flowers in vases to the venue and arrange with them to collect them the following day. In the event of any damage or breakages we will of course require you to cover the costs of the vase.

Can you deliver some of the Buttonholes to another address?

Yes, as long as it is reasonably close by. If the groom is travelling a long distance to the venue we can always meet him there.

Do you supply pins with the buttonholes / corsages?

Yes we do and they normally match the colour scheme of the wedding. We can also arrange for corsages to attached using magnets so as not to damage any delicate fabrics.

What time will my flowers get delivered?

We recommend delivery of your wedding flowers approximately two hours prior to the time you are due to leave for the ceremony. These timings can of course be adjusted according to the weather etc.

I am having a ceremony with my same sex partner and am not sure what flowers we will need?

There are no formal rules and we can cater for all tastes, from couples that would something traditional to those wanting something a little different. At your consultation with Catherine we can discuss exactly what you would like.

We are from another part of the country but getting married in the West Country, are you able to liaise with us over email?

We have had many couples that live away and got married in Cornwall or Devon. After the first consultation (which can be organised to fit in with you when you are here) Catherine is quite happy to liaise with you over email and telephone.

When do I need to pay?

A final invoice will be issued after our final meeting two weeks before the Wedding.

Can I have any flowers I like at any time of the year?

Whilst it is possible to source flowers all year round, you have to bear in mind that flowers grown out of their normal season aren’t always at their best quality and you would pay a premium price for them. Let Catherine advise you of all the different flowers and foliages that in season around your wedding day before you decide.

Are you a qualified florist?

Yes. I hold the highest qualification in floristry in the UK: the National Diploma of the society of Floristry, it has now been renamed British Master Florist. As well as this I am also a qualified Floristry Teacher and hold two RHS Chelsea Medals for my floral design.

I am having my wedding on a Sunday, would you deliver my flowers on Sunday or do I have to have them on Saturday?

Whatever day you are getting married, we will deliver your wedding flowers fresh to you on the day of your ceremony.

If I book a consultation with you do I have to go ahead with the order from you?

Of course not consultations are completely without obligation, so you have nothing to lose but potentially a lot to gain.

Are prices the same all year round?

Yes, our prices are the same. However, if your event is at a time when there is a high demand for flowers, such as Mothers day, Christmas or Valentines, there may be an increase in the price we have to pay for the flowers; this is only due increase in the market rate for flowers on these key dates.

Once I have received my quotation will prices change?

Quoted prices will only change if you request a change to the brief or the flower content.

Once I have received my quote how long do I have before I have to book?

Due to the popularity of some dates we would ask that you let us know as soon as possible, but usually within one month of the quotation date.

Do I have to pay a booking fee?

To secure your date, we do ask for a non-refundable booking fee that is deducted from your final bill. The size of the booking fee is normally 10% of the overall quote.

On the wedding day how will we get our wedding flowers?

Catherine will deliver the wedding flowers to you personally at a time agreed. She will also dress the venue so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
