Recent Weddings

There are many delights to our work but the best part is working with lovely couples as they plan one of the most important days of their lives so it really is a pleasure when we receive thank you letters expressing their delight at the flowers we have supplied for their weddings. Below are just a few we have received in the past couple of weeks which we are extremely proud to share with you.

Sally,

What can I say! The flowers were absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for all your time helping me and for helping on the day.

It was interesting getting to know a few different types of flowers and I will always think of you and your patience whenever I see the many flowers we discussed.

Warmest regards,
Anna

Dear  Clare and Sally

The flowers were magnificent and when I saw those huge boxes I wondered how we were going to use them all.  However, we did.  All that remained was some gyp and eucalyptus.  The blooms were much admired.  So thank you for all your efforts and organisation.  My friends did the pedestals and I did the arch and the matrix you created was really helpful in sorting out the flowers.

Thanks

Sally

Hi Sally,
Everything went well and the flowers were simply stunning! 
Thanks Mr and Mrs D!
Sally,

Billy and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the hard work you and your team put into our wedding flowers! We absolutely loved our day and the flowers just looked stunning. And thank you for surprising us with the flowers out on the terrace, this made the outside space that little bit more special 🙂

Hi Sally
Just a quick note to say thank you for our wedding flowers on Saturday. They were absolutely stunning and everyone thought so! 
It was a very carefree process and you made it so easy. 
I am currently admiring having a home full of flowers now 🙂 
Thanks again
Vicki & Kyle Stewart 

White Wedding Flowers

If you are planning a white themed wedding then these photographs from Sharon’s wedding at Old Thorns Manor Hotel last July may provide you with inspiration. Whilst Sharon chose Avalanche Roses and Gypsophila for the Bridal Party arrangements, to compliment the emerald green dresses worn by the Bridesmaids, the table arrangements consisted of tall vases filled with white Oriental Lilies which created a stunning look in the Grand Ballroom where the reception following their ceremony took place

Following her wedding, Sharon wrote this lovely review of our services –

“I would highly recommend Bridal Flowers Direct – From the build up, the actual day and even after my wedding. Sally made me feel like I was her only client (which I clearly wasn’t), They provided my 10 bridesmaid bouquets, my bouquet, 10 button holes, 13 centre pieces and additional flowers for the ceremony. Each stem was perfect and arranged beautifully to make my venue and photos perfect and better than I had imagined.”

Flowers from one of our Autumn 2013 weddings have recently been featured on the Wedding Gateway blog – if you are looking for ideas for an Autumn wedding this is worth a visit

 

By complete contrast photographs of these pure white arrangements were taken at last weekend’s wedding at the Old Thorns, Hotel near Liphook. The simplicity of the Oriental Lilies in plain cylinder vases was stunning.

 

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
