Having featured the wedding of Russell and Jemma on our blog a few weeks ago we were delighted to receive this email from Jemma
Hi Sally and the team at Nursery Fresh
Now that Russ and I are back from our honeymoon we wanted to get in touch to say Thank You so much for the flowers you supplied and those you arranged for our wedding at Gate Street Barn on Monday 8th July 2013.
Flowers were one of the most important things on our wedding list must haves. I really wanted them to make an impact and add to the rustic countryside setting we had chosen for our wedding. Each and every meeting with you Sally was a pleasure. You really listened to my ideas and your suggestions matched the image I had in my head perfectly. You were also willing to work with the ideas I had to incorporate herbs into my bouquet, create unique and individual buttonholes for the men and use rustic twine to tie them with.
The trial bouquet was one of the best decisions we made in regards to flowers as it allowed me to make tweaks to the flowers we eventually used and how they were styled. It also allowed us to trial the table centrepieces we would eventually make and take photos to give you an idea of the overall style of the day I was aiming to achieve. This truly cemented in my mind that the relaxed English country garden style of flowers were right for us, the venue and our wedding day.
The Saturday before our wedding we came to collect the beautiful flowers we would be arranging and filled the back of a Land Rover Discovery. You kindly let us borrow the flower buckets which were a godsend considering the mini-heatwave we experienced. Russ admitted that he was surprised by how many flowers there were but once arranged and in position at the venue they really made the decoration of the barn and created the impact I was looking for. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about the beautiful flowers it really meant a lot.
On Monday morning you arrived bright and early with my bouquet, the buttonholes and corsages and the outside barn archway arrangements. Everything looked fantastic and just as we had discussed. There was never any doubt that you would deliver and I was confident in choosing you as our supplier. You also stayed to help Russ and Andy attach the archway arrangements ensuring that everything looked perfect for our special day which meant a great deal.
Our flowers lasted well beyond the wedding day itself and it was a shame that we were leaving on honeymoon without getting to enjoy them for longer. The arrangements and my bouquet were distributed amongst family and friends who were able to enjoy them for a week after the wedding day itself.
We would highly recommend Nursery Fresh to other couples and wish you every success for the future. I will also look for any opportunity to work with you again such was the enjoyment I took from our meetings and the final beautiful flowers we received.
Russ & Jem
(The New Mr & Mrs Ingram)
