Sheila and Steve Saunders |
Having seen the quality of Elli's work at a wedding we went to a couple of years before ours we had no doubt who we would be using for our wedding flowers. Elli's knowledge and passion for her work is plain to see. Having explained the look we were after Elli guided us with our choice of flowers and foliage. She had her work cut out with us as I wanted a very big bouquet and my bridesmaids to have slightly smaller versions; which were all very beautiful and stunning. She made button holes, church displays, table displays, decorated the stairs at the venue as well as making beautiful wicker style stands for the entrance to our venue, all absolutely lovely. Elli also made tall twig like displays with lights that stood proud on the stage of the venue as well as in the bar area. All this work and so outstanding but that is not all, my fiancé and I were so keen to have 6 blossom trees at our venue to give it a very romantic magical touch and yes Elli made the trees we had imaged come to life, they were amazing. The complete finish - from our bouquets, button holes, church flowers to the venue were truly stunning and Elli created the perfect romantic soft look we had asked her to. Our guests were almost speechless when they saw all the area’s Elli had so beautifully created, including the garden area too. I can honestly say it bought tears to my eyes when I walked into the venue for our wedding breakfast as it looked so breathtakingly magical, beautiful and romantic. Thank you will never seem enough Elli for all your hard work and attention to detail, you most certainly made our journey and wedding day so wonderful. Love Sheila and Steve x

Sympathy Arrangement Feedback |
Thank you to Liz for allowing me to share with you her lovely feedback. Hi Elli, I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful flowers you did for my dad. They were better than we could have imagined. As we were leaving for West Yorkshire the following day, we went to Harrietsham and put them on my sister's grave which we felt was fitting. I have attached a couple of photos for you. They were perfect. Thanks so much for ensuring the floral tribute surpassed expectations and made us feel we had chosen the right florist for my dad. The time and effort alone were worth every penny and made us feel that the care and attention to detail was reflecting the love we felt for dad. Thanks again, Liz Hillcoat

Sarah & Ian had Vintage Cups & Saucers placed on top of a pile of traditional books as centre pieces. We designed all around arrangements within the tops of the cups, consisting of Freesia's Gypsophila, Ornithogulum & Little Silver Spray Roses. Sarah's Bouquet was a Natural Hand Tied Design consisting of Vermeer Calla Lily, Ambaster Garden Roses, Little Silver Spray Roses, Gypsophila, Freesia with hints of Peacock Feathers & Mistletoe & one symbolic Germini. I personally really enjoyed working with Sarah & Ian to Design Flowers that were in keeping with their Gorgeous Wedding Venue & Warm Personalities. We received a lovely text from Sarah; I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for the stunning flowers that you created for me. The Centre Pieces were stunning & brought the Ball Room to life with their colours. Everyone was after pinching one of them!And my Bouquet was stunning, I've cut a couple of the flowers out to try & preserve them & I'm going to place the rest on my grandad's grave this afternoon.I'm sitting here looking at it again as I type & I love it! I wil get all the pics together & make sure I send you some. I absolutely loved my Hair Slide, it was fabulous to have as my veil was removed straight after the Ceremony as it was so Windy. I had such a fantastic day & was so relaxed in the morning because I knew I was in safe hands with wonderful people like you. Thank you for helping to make my day so perfect. Sarah xx
