Liz originally contacted us to discuss cut flower supply only for her wedding which was taking place at Lower Grange Farm in Kent in July. During the course of the conversation we mentioned our Bridal Flower make up service and although the wedding was taking place away from our delivery area, Liz decided that she could organise for a family member to collect the Bridal Party Arrangements on their way to the wedding and we would then courier the cut flowers directly to the venue earlier in the week so she had them in plenty of time to fill the jars she had collected and decorated.
After several emails and phone calls the order was finalised and the photos sent to us by Liz show the beautiful end results.
This is a perfect example of the way in which DIY Brides can create their own venue arrangements whilst leaving us to make the bouquets, buttonholes and corsages which alleviates some of the stress in the days before the wedding.
If you are interested in us providing a similar service for your wedding, please do get in touch – we are always happy to discuss all the options available to you and chat through any of your ideas.

Apologies for the lack of recent posts but we seem to have been swept off our feet all Summer ……..
Whilst we spend most of the summer months putting together Bridal Party and Venue arrangements for Brides who wish to take advantage of our full wedding service there are some Brides who wish to be more creative and ‘hands on’ with their wedding flowers so ask us to supply just the flowers they require. In these cases, we are always happy to offer any advice needed regarding flower varieties and the quantities which are likely to be required to create their arrangements.
Lorna was one such Bride, who in August 2015, put together all the arrangements for her wedding and it is lovely to see we have been mentioned in an article on the blog of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. Please click on the link below to see pictures from the wedding and to read the lovely comments from Lorna.
If you are a DIY Bride looking to make all or some of your wedding flower arrangements do get in touch. If you only wish to make your venue arrangements, we are happy to quote for making the Bridal Party Arrangements which may alleviate some of the stress!!
What an exceptionally busy week it has been and it seems hardly possible that it is already almost a week since our Bridal Flower Open Day.
We were inundated with visitors all day which was so pleasing to see. It was such a pleasure to meet up with couples who have already booked us to supply the flowers for their wedding and to catch up with couples we have previously met at wedding fayres and who were visiting our premises for the first time and who would now like us to quote for their 2016 and 2017 weddings.
For all of you who are still waiting to hear back from us with your quote or re-quote we apologise for the delay. Generally speaking we endeavour to get these out within the week but our Easter weekend weddings have naturally had to take priority but we will be back in touch next week.
Our diary is now pretty fully booked with consultations for the next few weekends but if you would still like to book a consultation to discuss your wedding flowers with us do please get in touch.
Below are just a few snapshots of the Open Day which we hope you will enjoy. If you were unable to make the Open Day last weekend out next one is scheduled to take place on Saturday 15th October 2016.
We are always delighted to also be joined at our Open Days by some other local wedding suppliers we work very closely with and the photographs below taken by Adam De Ste-Croix of Sainte-Croix Wedding Photography show our flowers and their products beautifully

We wish you all a very Happy Easter weekend and look forward to working with you in the lead up to your weddings
It is now only two days until our Bridal Flower Open Day which takes place here on Saturday 19th March from 10am to 4pm.
We have planned some beautiful arrangements for our displays in a multitude of colours and our cold store will be full of flowers so if you are getting married in the coming months and need some inspiration for your flowers please do come along.
No appointment is necessary and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
It may currently be snowing outside but these lovely sunny pictures taken last September have certainly ‘warmed us up’ on what is a far from Spring day.
Jenny & Henry were married at Thorney Island Church followed by a marquee reception in Jenny’s parent’s garden. Whilst we made all the Bridal Party Arrangements, Jenny created her own table centrepieces using flowers supplied by us. This is a part of our service which many Brides take advantage of and it is always lovely for us to see the beautiful arrangements they have created.
Jenny had requested predominantly ‘country’ style flowers with accents of blue to tie in with the Bridesmaid’s dresses and the coastal setting of their wedding.
We were delighted to see this lovely review of our services written by Jenny –
“Bridal Flowers Direct did an amazing job with our wedding flowers – I have no clue about flowers at all but they were able to take my vague ideas and produce the most perfect bouquets and flowers for arranging, whilst remaining flexible about our changing requirements. I cannot thank them enough! The whole process was very easy and we felt excellent value for money too.”

When you have a Welsh born Bride and an Australian born Groom getting married in the Spring, the perfect flower combination is Daffodils and Mimosa and this is exactly what we supplied for the wedding of Helen and Scott which took place at Ramster Hall, Chiddingfold, Surrey at the end of last week.
This was one of our weddings where we never actually met the Bride or the Groom but as they were very specific with their requirements, we were able to organise everything by email alone.
The end result was a stunningly simplistic display of flowers which had Spring written all over it and definitely proves that less can sometimes be more when it comes to wedding flowers.
Below are just a few of the photos we took of the bouquets and during the set up at the venue –
Our next Bridal Flower Open Day takes place on Saturday 19th March at our premises in Horndean.
Our Open Days give Brides, Grooms and their families an opportunity to view an extensive range of wedding flowers and bridal arrangements. Our team will be on hand all day to discuss your specific requirements and show you examples of our work.
We look forward to seeing you anytime between 10 am and 4 pm on the day (no appointment necessary)
Today we have received this lovely testimonial from one of our November 2015 wedding couples. These are always so lovely to read and we greatly appreciate such lovely comments.
“I can’t recommend Bridal flowers enough. They were welcoming and so friendly. They worked to our budget and the flowers were just beautiful I couldn’t have asked for better! Whilst I was getting quotes I found some florists very pushy as well as expensive but with Bridal flowers this was just not the case. They got everything perfect and I can’t thank them enough!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!”
Jane & Russ (15.11.2015)

During the cold winter months it is always lovely to look back on weddings from the previous Summer and we are delighted to share with you these stunning photographs from the July 2015 wedding of Victoria and Alex which took place at Farnham Castle in Surrey. Victoria had requested that the flowers tie in with her pale blue and white colour scheme and our flowers were even joined by goldfish on the guest tables which was definitely a first for us!

It seems hard to believe that it is already over a week since our Bridal Flower Open Day and we have been busy getting back in touch with many of the Brides we met on the day.
We were completely overwhelmed with the attendance and wish to thank all the Brides and Grooms and their families who came along and we look forward to meeting up with you in the coming weeks at your consultations and then working with you in the lead up to your wedding.
Below are some photographs taken on the day by Hana Venn Photography showing some of our displays and also macarons by Queen Bees Treats
If you were unable to attend our Open Day and are planning a wedding in the coming months our 2016 Bridal Flower Open Days we will be held on Saturday 19th March and Saturday 15th October 2016
