Since opening The Flower Studio in 2009 I have quoted for over 350 weddings and the majority of Brides that those quotes have gone to have come back and booked us as their wedding florists – we have been so privileged to work on some amazing weddings, from small intimate secret days to full-blown, unlimited budget, flowers everywhere, extravaganzas!
But I often hear Brides and Grooms (and Mothers!) complain about the expense of wedding flowers – “but you can buy them in Tesco/Shoprite/Marksy’s for a fiver – how can a bouquet be THAT expensive?”
Now I know everyone has a price limit, whether it is £50, £500 or £5000, and wedding flowers are a difficult area of your big day to budget for as it is a very variable item. A wedding dress has a price tag, a suit has a price tag, wedding rings have a price tag, but pretty much everything can change in costing wedding flowers when you take in to account changing seasons and availability.
So hopefully this article will explain a little about what goes into preparing, designing and delivering your wedding flowers.

Autumn is possibly one of my favourite seasons – the changing colours of the trees, skipping about in piles of crisp leaves like a kid and bracing the cooler weather dressed up in your favourite woolly jumper, scarf and mittens! Our Autumn workshops this year are full of colour and you my dear friends are invited to come along and make a beautiful seasonal arrangement … Continue reading Autumn Workshop Dates!
Yesterday one of my Brides from 2011 came in to see me and brought with her a CD of her wedding photos from almost exactly a year ago! Time certainly does fly and it was lovely to meet up with Natalie (who is now sporting the cutest little baby bump!). So I thought a nice way to say Happy Anniversary to this gorgeous couple, I … Continue reading White Hydrangeas and a Pop of Colour!
