Congratulations on your engagement! You’ve just made the first steps towards wedding planning and your big day is definitely an exciting event for you both. And of course, gorgeous flowers should be part of this special occasion which is why we are here to provide you our professional floral services in Devon. If you are searching for someone who can bring all your visions into reality with beautiful blooms, there are quite a few things that you need to consider before choosing your wedding florist - so let me give you five questions that could help make your decision easier when selecting the perfect professional florist in Devon for the job!
What is your experience in the wedding florist industry and what style of flowers do you specialise in?
With over a decade of experience running my own wedding florist business, I've had the pleasure of working with countless couples to bring their floral visions to life. My journey in the industry began at the young age of 13, and since then, I've honed my skills and refined my style working for lots of fabulous florists before starting my own business in 2012. When it comes to floral design, I specialise in creating natural and elegant, seasonal arrangements that capture the essence of love and commitment. Whether it's soft pastel hues or rich jewel tones, I love playing with colour schemes to create the perfect atmosphere for each unique wedding. With my extensive knowledge of floral varieties and arrangements, I'm confident in my ability to bring your wedding day dreams to fruition.
Are there any seasonal flower restrictions that I should be aware of when booking a Devon wedding florist for my big day (e.g., availability of certain blooms)?
As you plan for your wedding in Devon, it's important to keep in mind any seasonal flower restrictions that could impact your floral arrangements. Luckily, one of the most beloved wedding flowers - peonies - are in season during May and June, making them a popular choice for weddings during these months. However, it's important to note that some wedding favourites may not be available year-round. That's why it's important to work with a trusted Devon wedding florist who understands the intricacies of seasonal blooms and can help you create a stunning floral design recommending substitutes for your favourite blooms. We pride ourselves on using the finest dutch suppliers, and nurture our relationships with local flower farmers, who will source only the most exquisite blooms in season for your big day.
How far in advance should I book my Devon wedding florist to ensure the best selection of flowers for my ceremony and reception floral arrangements and decorations (e.g., 6- 12 months in advance)?
Finding the perfect floral arrangements for your wedding should not feel overwhelming, however one thing to note is that good florists get booked up quickly. To ensure that you have access to the best selection of flowers and highly experienced florists for your Devon wedding, it's best to plan ahead. I only work on a set number of exclusive weddings each year, meaning I can provide the highest quality service to my couples throughout that year. I recommend booking your Devon wedding florist approximately 6-12 months in advance, giving us ample time to understand your vision and bring it to life. As we can only be in one place at a time, key summer dates do get booked up fast. This is not meant to pressure you at all, I always say to my couples please do not worry if you do not have everything set in stone, we can tweak and rework throughout the year. The important thing is to secure the date so that with our help, your wedding day will be filled with stunning flowers that perfectly capture the beauty of your love story.
What other services do you offer besides flower arrangements (e.g., design consultation, delivery, setup/breakdown help at venue)?
At our flower studio, our services go far beyond just beautiful arrangements. We offer a range of options to make your event planning process even easier. Need vases to showcase your blooms? No worries – we provide vase hire so you don't have to worry about sourcing them yourself. Looking to add some ambiance with stylish candlesticks? We hold a wide range of props from beautiful vases through to candlesticks, votives, candles and can recommend further suppliers to help with styling such as linen. At the beginning of your planning process we offer bespoke moodboard and itemized proposal services to make sure your vision becomes a reality. With our full range of offerings, we're here to help make your event stunning and stress-free.
Will you be there on my wedding day itself to set up and oversea everything?
Your wedding day is extremely special and you deserve to have everything go smoothly without you having to worry about the details. That's why I personally will be there on your wedding day itself to ensure that everything is set up the way you want it. I'll oversee every aspect of the flowers throughout the whole wedding day, to make sure it's perfect. And before you walk down the aisle, I'll be there to hand you your bouquet and ensure that you feel confident and beautiful in knowing how to hold your bouquet. Trust me to take care of the floral details so you can focus on the most important thing- enjoying your special day.
As a Devon wedding florist, I thrive in creating beautiful floral arrangements filled with the fresh seasonal blooms and elegant styling. Booking me for your big day means you’ll have access to my expertise and knowledge of the industry as well as my beautiful floral designs. For the best selection of flowers to suit your taste, themes and budget, it’s recommended to book 6-12 months in advance. Not only do I provide unique flower arrangements, but I also offer design consultation services, delivery services and setup/breakdown help at venues to ensure that everything runs smoothly on your special day.
