Back in December we supplied the flowers for the wedding of the daughter of a long standing customer and friend of Bridal Flowers Direct. Following the wedding we received the following testimonial from Ailsa the Bride. As you will see from the photos it was a wonderfully happy day and the flowers complimented the colour scheme perfectly – contrary to popular belief it is possible to find flowers to tie in with teal!
I couldn’t recommend Sally and her team more highly. When I went for the planning visit, I had some idea of what I wanted and brought some examples of colours but Sally took it to a whole new level and I left so excited as I knew she had really understood what I wanted. When the flowers arrived they were stunning – and such perfect colours, they really made the day perfect. Thank you 🙂
We recently supplied the flowers for the wedding of Jo & Paul which took place at Hill Place in Swanmore and have just received this testimonial from Jo. Photos from this wedding to follow
Just a quick note to thank you so much for all our lovely flowers, there was enough for 3 large vases and they lasted ages.
The bouquet, buttonholes and corsages looked amazing.

Spring flowers were the choice for a wedding which took place at the Tithe Barn, Ditcham and, as you will see from the photos below, the colours truly reflected the first sunny Saturday in months.
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.
Bridal Flowers Direct are delighted to announce we will be holding another of our popular Bridal Flower Open Days on Saturday 23rd November from 10.00 – 4.00. Please see flyer below and on our Event page for full details.
We will look forward to meeting with anyone who is planning flowers for a wedding in the coming months or years (we are already taking bookings for 2015) and who needs inspiration or advice on the options available.
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 –
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.
Below is a selection of photographs taken by photographer Alison Gaudion (www.gaudions.co.uk)
Gate Street Barn, Bramley was the idyllic setting for the wedding of Jemma and Russell and it was a beautiful sunny July morning when Bridal Flowers Direct arrived at the Barn to deliver the Bridal Party and Porch Arrangements.
Jemma had decided she wished all the arrangements to compliment the English country setting of the Barn, in the heart of the Surrey countryside, and meticulous planning had gone into all the flowers with the help of her Auntie Di. Following several consultations with Sally of Bridal Flowers Direct the style and design of all the arrangements were finalised with Jemma even asking us to supply her with a mock up of her Bridal bouquet – such was her attention to every detail.
Jemma and Di wished to make all the venue arrangements themselves but required us to make the Bridal Party and Porch Arrangements.
As you can see from the photos below the finished results were stunning. Jemma and Di were both such a pleasure to work with and we have been promised more photos once Jemma and Russell return from their honeymoon in the Seychelles.
Everyone at Bridal Flowers Direct wishes Jemma & Russell every future happiness
Our Bridal Flower Open Day is a unique opportunity to view an extensive
range of Bridal Flowers and Wedding Floral Displays to suit all colour

Our experienced team will be available all day to discuss your specific
requirements and show you examples of our work.
