Micro-wedding price guide

For brides and grooms who decide to go ahead with their wedding celebrations on a smaller scale due to Covid-19, I have created a special flower package. Just because you’re scaling back your party, doesn’t mean you can’t have beautiful flowers.

All micro-wedding packages include a 10% off voucher for those parties when you can finally get together and catch up with everyone who couldn’t make it to your mini wedding celebration

You can use your voucher for any event flowers (any venue including your own home/garden) with a minimum spend of £100 booked within 18 months of your micro-wedding (only available for local delivery).

Give me a call if you’d like more information about the offer or if you’d like to check my availability for your wedding date.

2021 Wedding Price Guide

Please feel free to download my 2021/2022 Wedding Price Guide.

Please bear in mind that it isn’t possible to give a full quote without a consultation. The overall cost of your wedding flowers is dependent on the style you choose, the type of flowers and foliage you want and the location and date of the wedding.

If you are working to a budget, I can help to select flowers and styles that will be both beautiful and affordable.

Please get in touch to check my availability for your date and to arrange a consultation (by zoom currently in order to comply with COVID-19 rules).

Foam-free urns – if in doubt, leave it out (and how not to make perfect mirror images)

Hello, and welcome back if you’re a returning reader or welcome to my flower tutorial series if you’re here for the first time.

This is a quick tutorial for a pair of foam-free flower urns. I made these back in March 2020 just as the Covid-19 lockdown started. It feels like a very long time ago now and I feel somewhat guilty that I’ve promised to share photos of the tutorial on at least 3 occasions now! So here we go. The tutorial is about designing as a pair without making perfect mirror images and also about learning to leave things out of a design and using photographs to help you critique your own work.

What you’ll need

Pair of urns. These are approximately 30 cm tall by 23 cm diameter.

Waterproof liners/bowls. I used plastic oasis posy bowls as they fit perfectly into the rim of the urns. I reuse these bowls over and over again as they fit well into all sorts of containers.

Damp sphagnum moss.

Chicken wire.

Gloves and wire cutters.

Florists tools – snips/scissors or a knife. Secateurs if you are using woody foliage stems.

A selection of flower stems and foliage.
