Wedding flowers - how our process works
Congratulations on your engagement! It goes without saying, having the right people around you when you're planning your big day can make all the difference. You need to be able to trust & relax. Enjoy your engagement and leave the flower details to us.
We offer custom floral designs tailored to your requests. Being a small team & because we want to enjoy your wedding day too and give it our full attention, we only book one event per date and book a limited number of events per year.
While we are happy to give estimates based on emailed requests, a face to face meeting is always preferable in order to ensure we are a good fit for your big day and to get to know one another! We want to know about your aesthetic, wedding goals, inspirations and your needs. We want to make sure we understand your likes and preferences and possibly offer some suggestions. You also need to make sure we are the right florist for you.
We offer the initial 1-hour meeting and quotation free of charge.
Please fill out our intro /contact form or call 0412 922 505 to make an appointment.
The following tips are here to help guide you on possible flowers you want to include.
We will send through a form for you to complete which will help with a few basic details
Book a time for the initial meeting.
Allow 1 hour
Bring any photos of ideas
Have as many details with you as possible - colours, numbers, venues, times, theme (see list below for flower list ideas)
Have an approximate budget in mind
After the meeting, we will gather the information needed and then send through a quotation/contract with a price & details
Once it is established that we both feel we are a good fit, we require a signed contract with a 30% retainer. The deposit can be paid by bank transfer or credit card.
If you are preparing well in advance of your wedding date we realise some things may change. We will contact you again closer to the wedding date to check.
We will do whatever we can to make sure your flowers are as close to your wish list as possible however substitutions may be necessary. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and colour scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value & beauty.

What to do with flowers after the wedding
We would love for all flowers to be taken home. You've investing in making your day beautiful. While the flowers will be at their very best for the day most should last for a while longer and should be enjoyed! Summer and marquee weddings may shorten the life of flowers however. Table centrepieces can be given to special guests (most vases will be included in the cost or are to be retuned within 7 days of the wedding), the arbour flowers can be removed and taken. If we are to pack down, we are happy to save any flowers still in good shape and delivery them to an agreed address (extra charges will apply).
