General Comments (in random order)

Nursery fresh were so helpful as i was very specific in one particular flower I wanted and they recommended others to match perfectly, I had great supportive emails and telephone calls prior to the wedding and on the day I have to say I was speechless with the quality, attention to detail (we had 2 small pageboys who needed a smaller calla Lilly as a button hole) and absolute beauty of all the flowers and how the bouquets were presented, Sally guided me on the organza for my bouquet and the young bridesmaids to match their dresses and set mine off too. All in all I think they are amazing, and it shows they are passionate about creating beautiful and quality flowers to please there clients over making a huge profit…… We gave our flowers to an old people’s care home the next day and they were overwhelmed with the colours and beauty of the roses, lilies and greenery too. Thank goodness we found you nursery fresh!!! They soooo deserve to win! May I also say what a wonderful touch on the day to leave a wedding card and a lovely box of ‘again’ quality chocolates for the bride….. Amazing!

We specified blue hydrangeas and they were amazing and lasted in the church for 10 days after the wedding. We still have some in vases at home!! The Asian and Longiflorun lilies were magnificent. The avalanche roses, freesias, gypsophyllia, gladioli, eryngium and single chrysants were fresh, fabulous and smelled wonderful. Everyone at the wedding commented on the church and reception flowers. I did not ‘conform’ to use the usual local supplier for church flowers and everyone remarked that the flowers were the best ever. High praise from a group of Oxfordshire ladies with definite opinions on suppliers!!

A superb personalised service which added to making my son and his new bride’s day extra special

I have only great things to say about Nursery Fresh. Sally was incredibly helpful from the first time I contacted her months before the wedding. She was fast to respond on email (which so many suppliers are not, as I discovered during the wedding planning process) and she gave me very detailed information on what was available at the time of year I was getting married so I was able to get a good idea of how much everything would cost. She was very patient with my endless questions, and also really helpful in her recommendations when I needed them. I would 100% recommend them to anyone else getting married and wanting to do their own flowers.

Our flowers were perfect – stunning and beautiful and exactly what I had wanted. Sally captured the theme and feel of the day perfectly and thanks to that, the flowers were one of my absolute favourite things of the whole wedding. People still comment on them now – nearly 6 months later. I can’t recommend Nursery Fresh more highly.

Extremeley positive and helpful and no trouble at all when I wanted to change my order. The flowers were in fantastic condition when they arrived.

Sally & Clare were very helpful, they had time to sit and chat about my ideas, we shared magazines and talked various options through on a couple of occasions. I ended up buying flowers from Nursery Fresh that were then being arranged by a family member of mine on the day. I also chose Nursery Fresh to prepare my bouquet, which they kindly delivered to my house at 8.00am on the morning of my wedding.

Despite the fact that our wedding was only small Nursery Fresh did not make me feel like I was wasting their time. From the initial consultation to the build up to the day, they were always available with advise & reassurance.

Sally was really lovely and helpful when deciding what flowers to choose and helped me to get the look i wanted for the budget. I did the arranging myself but the quality of the flowers was whet made it all look so perfect on the day. Very efficient and reliable delivery and they were absolutely beautiful. Thank you

Sally and her team were so helpful, making suggestions to recreate the bouquets from a picture we were working from. We wanted some silk hydrangeas worked into the bouquets aswell and nothing was too much trouble. The bouquets were exactly as we had envisaged and very good value for money.

I could see the flowers and choose them by being allowed in the chiller They discussed ideas They didn’t push me to spend more money at any point Sally kept intouch with me all the way through – which made it easy to trust them and believe they would do as a asked It was easy to contact them especially by email on my wedding day the delivery driver kept in touch with me to – which kept my mind at ease

From the moment I first contacted them, Nursery Fresh were a pleasure to work with. Their recommendations and service were excellant. They went out of their way to support me and reduce the anxiety of my wedding preparations.

I was extremely pleased and very impressed by the service I received. When I met with Clare she was welcoming and couldn’t do enough to make sure I was satisfied with my choice. She was very knowledgable about the industry. I wasn’t hassled after I made my order but felt I had support when needed. She even emailed me pictures that I could copy to make my own bouquet. The flowers arrived when they should in perfect condition. I can’t recommend Nursery Fresh Ltd enough.

My flowers were beautiful, and enabled my mother to make me highly-personla, amazing bouquets and table centres that everyone commented on

Flowers are expensive, so we were looking for a supplier who would supply the flowers and who could (and more importantly were willing) to give us some guidance on what goes with what and rough ideas of quantities. My sister did the actual arrangements, but due to her job she was away for most of the time before the big day. I went to see Sally at Nursery Fresh a couple of months before the day to get an idea of what would be in season and what the rough costs were. At that point i didn’t really know what I wanted and Sally was able to show me some pictures to get a few ideas. I actually saw the bouquet i wanted on the cover of a magazine, but when I got home I couldn’t find the picture anywhere. No panic – I emailed Sally who very kindly found the picture and sent it over. Considering I didn’t actually use their arranging service and was only buying the flowers, the level of service that I recieved was amazing. The flowers arrived promptly and they even leant me the flower buckets at no charge to make it easier for us. The flowers looked amazing, and they lasted really well too. My mum had a house full of flowers for over 2 weeks after the wedding!! All in all, they provided an excellent service at a very reasonable cost and I was able to get exactly what I wanted.

I use Nursery Fresh for the wedding I do myself. Their service is perfect, and they always call before substituting or if price is very high for alternative suggestions. I recommend them to other florists.

Wonderful one to one initial consultation with bride and groom . Excellent knowledge of different flowers and foliage and brilliant ideas for modern theme and colours we wanted. Really talented florist made stunning and breathtaking pedestal arrangements ,and table centres as well as bouquets and buttonholes. Nothing was too much trouble, communication was super efficient and the price was extremely reasonable. They were faultless and we would and recommend Nurseryfresh and Claire Dridge to anyone.

Why They Booked (in random order)

We were let down relatively close to the wedding by the person who was doing our flowers, on asking our wedding venue manager he recommended nursery fresh….. how pleased we are now that my friend let us down!!

Price and quality of customer service

1) Because I could order large quantities of flowers at wholesale prices rather than be ripped off at florists prices. It was great to be a member of the public but be able to access a wholesale place, but also have the service of a florist. You normally have to be a florist to be able to buy from a wholesale supplier. 2) I was also able to hire tall martini style vases with mirrors at a very reasonable rate, much cheaper than a florist had quoted me. 3) Because they were nice people to deal with.

Although they are large wholesalers they were happy to deal with me as an individual with a relativley low spend.

Quality, Service, Value for money and professionalism all in large doses

I didn’t want to pay the ridiculous prices most florists ask you to pay as soon as they hear the word wedding. Which is why I looked for a wholesalers.. Many don’t service the public I also wanted to do the flowers my way. Nursery fresh forfilled all my wishes

Sally was great at our first meeting – she really listened to want we wanted and worked with us to create something beautiful, and didn’t try to tell us what we wanted like all the other florists we’d seen. They were also unbeatable on price.

Excellent flowers at a reasonable price, and they don’t get jumpy if you want to do the arrangements yourself!

on recommendation

My mother is an amateur flower arranger, who has won awards at various shows, and always gets her flowers from Nursery Fresh because she knows they will be of a very high quality and reasonably priced

My first email was answered promptly, with helpful suggestions which made me feel assured I was dealing with a reliable, conscientious and knowledgeable supplier. Further email exchanges and telephone conversations confirmed my first impression and I appreciated further guidance and advice.

I wanted to do the flowers myself so just needed a supplier who was fairly priced, who offered a wide range and who was easy to deal with – Nursery Fresh offered everything I needed along with fantastic service.

Because of their enthusiasm and helpfulness.

A good friend of mine recommended them as she was so pleased

After reading all the glowing reviews and meeting the staff I knew they cared about my wedding day and new how important the flowers are in the celebration. They bent over backwards to help and make sure I had everything I needed. They gave support and advice at no extra cost. Their prices are fantastic too.

Recommended by a friend and impressed by initial consultation and friendliness of Claire and the team.

In comparison with other suppliers they were helpful, reasonably priced, and flexible.
