A testimonial to be proud of …….

We simply could not wait another day to share this lovely testimonial and the accompanying stunning photographs sent into us recently by Kelly & Sam. Messages like this really do make us all feel so proud of all that we do

“My partner and I found Bridal Flowers Direct on a Google search, after speaking with several other florists. We had a clear vision of the type of them we wanted, and we had found it difficult to find a company that really understood This.

Our theme was ‘english country garden’ and we had decorated jam jars for individual flowers and candles. The idea was to have a sea of flowers across the top table.

I had originally ordered several different types of flowers from Bridal FlowersDirect, without really discussing it in depth (my mistake) so I was delighted to receive a phone call from Sally, advising us that the flowers we had chosen were not going to be the best choice for our theme. Sally then went on to advise what flowers would create the biggest impact, and I can honestly say that everything she advised was perfect. They really took an interest in the theme of our day, and offered invaluable advice that ensured that our special day, looked beautiful.

Bridal Flowers Direct  will now be the only company I go to for flowers on a large scale… And I have recommended them to several people, as well as guests on the day who couldn’t compiment the flowers enough.

Staff were all friendly and helpful, and even pandered to my overbearing worrying about whether the flowers would ‘droop’ (which they didn’t for a whole week) which makes a big difference when you are a worried bride!!

Thank you once again Bridal Flowers Direct, for a gold star service & amazingly reasonable prices 🙂

We Love Testimonials!!

Not one or two but three lovely testimonials from recent Brides received today – always such a pleasure to receive them and to know that our flowers continue to delight all those who see them.

“Dear Sally,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how delighted we were with the flowers and beautiful bouquets that you supplied for my daughter’s wedding. They were exactly what Rosemary wanted and all the flowers were much admired by the guests.

With best wishes,

Alison”

“Sally and all at Nursery Fresh – thank you for everything.
When we walked into the Barn on our wedding day we were blown away. The flower arrangements were just what we wanted. The bouquets and buttonholes were perfect too. Thanks again!
Leighton & Gemma xx”

“Hi Sally and all the team!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing all the flowers for my wedding last Saturday.
They were absolutely gorgeous and I loved them! The flowers were stunning and everyone has said how fantastic they looked. The colours went really well with the theme and looked amazing against the bridesmaid dresses.
We really can’t thank you enough for all your hard work! Even after a week the bouquets are still looking fab!
Thank you so much!
Jemma & Dave Xx”

Titchfield Great Barn – Rustic Wedding Setting – Photoshoot

Earlier in the year we were delighted to take part in a photo shoot which took place in the grounds of Titchfield Great Barn, an up and coming wedding venue near Fareham, Hampshire. The photo shoot was a collaboration of local businesses working together to show case their own particular products or services as well as providing inspiration for anyone planning a similar themed wedding or event.

In keeping with the theme of the event – ‘Rustic, Spring, French Style’ we made a selection of bouquets and table arrangements in shades of yellow, cream and white. By combining Spray Roses, Stocks, Tanacetum Daisies, Craspedia and Gypsophila with lovely silver grey Eucalyptus leaves we were able to create arrangements which truly reflected both the theme of the photoshoot and the rustic setting of the Barn. We also supplied the bicycle props which looked stunning decorated with a selection of the same flowers as did all our vintage style bottles which when filled with flowers are always perfect for events at a setting such as this.

Whilst we have previously posted some of the photographs; below is a greater selection from those taken on the day and as we regrettably head closer to Autumn we thought the yellow colour palette would be a lovely reminder of long hot Summer days. The photographs are simply stunning and highlight the talented wedding suppliers this area has to offer.

Another collaborative photoshoot is planned in the next few weeks and whilst our lips are sealed on any further details I can assure you it will be equally as stunning ….. watch this space ……

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year to you all and especially to all the Brides and their families who are planning weddings in the coming months.

It is looking as if it is going to be an extremely busy year for us and we are looking forward to supplying all the Brides who are already booked with us. If you have still to organise the flowers for your wedding do get in touch with us either by phone, email or by completing the online enquiry form.

We are always delighted to receive testimonials from Brides we have supplied and here are just a few of the more recent ones:-

Hi Clare,
Flowers eventually arrived and were beautiful. You’d also perfectly judged the numbers of flowers I needed for what I wanted to do. I think I finished the last arrangement with one carnation, a small section of chrysanthemum and a few pieces of Gypsophilia to spare.
Many thanks, Fiona 

Hi Sally,

Thanks so much for providing our wedding flowers. They were so beautiful. You really saved my bacon offering such gorgeous blooms at wholesale prices as well as offering a make-up service. I had originally intended to do it all myself – what madness! I know Mum has already been in touch to express her appreciation of your fine quality flowers.

Thanks again for everything.
With all good wishes,
Rosie C

Dear Sally

I am just writing to thank you for the absolutely stunning flower arrangements that you created for me in such little time for my wedding on the 16th December. I was delighted with the size of the roses and the overall look they created at the venue. Every arrangement including the bridesmaid combs totally exceeded my expectations and I am so glad you were able to provide our wedding flowers. I will absolutely recommend you in nay way I can.

Many thanks again – I just can’t express how delighted we were

With best wishes

B & C

We were particularly pleased to receive the above testimonial as the Bride and Groom live in Norway so the whole booking process from initial enquiry to the delivery of the flowers was carried out by email and we never actually met the Bride. The wonders of modern technology and just proves that anything is possible no matter the distances involved!

We are also always delighted to receive photographs taken by the official photographer on the wedding day. Below are just a sample of some of those we have been sent – a big thank you to all the Brides & Grooms who sent them in and to the photographers for allowing us to display their photographs

CHANGE OF SEASONS REFLECTED IN OUR WEDDINGS

From traditional white flowers for last months Civil Partnership of Sharon & Keeley to autumnal shades arranged in pumpkins for last weekend’s Kirdford Barn wedding of Georgina and Kieran, the team at Bridal Flowers Direct are still busy and the weddings supplied are reflecting the changes in seasons.

The photographs below are just some of the images we have from recent late Summer and early Autumn weddings all of which we hope will inspire those Brides looking to choose the flowers for their own wedding day.

Please do not forget our Bridal Flower Open Day which takes place at our premises in Horndean on Saturday 23rd November and will provide an opportunity for further inspiration as well as a chance to chat to members of the team.

(please see EVENTS page for full details and to download a flyer)

Judging by the recent testimonials we have received (see TESTIMONIALS page) our flowers are still continuing to delight and we have already taken bookings for 2014 from guests and relatives who have attended weddings we have supplied.

East Dean Village Hall Wedding

Bridal Flowers Direct were delighted to supply the flowers for the wedding of Sarah Baudains (née Griffiths) which took place on Saturday 27th July 2013 at Petersfield Registry Office followed by a reception at East Dean Village Hall.

 Whilst the Bridal Party Arrangements were made by us, Sarah arranged her own venue flowers with the help of willing family members.

Following the wedding Sarah sent us the following message –

 Hi Clare,

Apologies for this being rather delayed, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing the flowers for our wedding on 27th July. They all looked beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for anything more!

 We’re still waiting for our professional photos but I would be happy to send you some of the flowers once we have them if you’d like. 

 Thanks again,

 Sarah
