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!!!”

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
On a cold, wet, windy August day the only option to remind us that we did briefly have a Summer is to look back at some photographs from one of our early July weddings.
Anna and James had originally attended one of our Bridal Flower Open Days at which they outlined the plans for their wedding which was to take place at Duncton Mill, a beautiful location on the West Sussex border. They were to have an outdoor ceremony conducted by a family member followed by a reception in a tipi next to the lake.
In the weeks leading up to the wedding Anna and James worked tirelessly to create the wedding of their dreams with the flowers being an integral part of their plans. Their brief was for us to create a look which reflected the outdoor theme of the wedding using primarily country meadow style flowers. Anna wished her bouquet to be made from the same flowers with bouquets of just daisies for the Bridesmaids. The buttonholes were then made from a mixed selection of flowers and bound with natural raffia. Jam jars were attached to shepherds crooks to line the aisle and were also placed along the guest tables in the tipi.
As you will see from the photographs below taken by Zara Price Photography the overall finished look was stunning and a testament to all the hard work by everyone involved. Following the wedding we received these lovely words from Anna
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. James said that it was all very rushed on the morning and he could not have done it without you!
We love it when Brides send in photographs from their weddings and these stunning ones from the May wedding of Emma and Dan are no exception. The wedding which took place at Earnley Grange, Earnley, Nr Chichester, West Sussex was pretty much a DIY wedding so whilst we made all the Bridal Party arrangements Emma had also ordered cut flowers from us to create her own venue arrangements.
Sweet Avalanche Roses and pale pink Hydrangeas, which complimented the Bridesmaid’s dresses, were combined with Tanacetum Daisies and Gypsophila to add to the summery country look.
The stunning photographs below were all taken by Katy Cain
There really is no better way to start off a busy week than to receive such a lovely testimonial. The Mother of the Bride who wrote this had ordered flowers from us to be delivered via our overnight delivery service and as you will see was extremely delighted with both the flowers and the service she received.
“A big thank you to Bridal Flowers Direct. The quality of the flowers you supplied was excellent. I got all the help I needed promptly when I phoned or emailed and I certainly felt that my queries received time and patience and that nothing was too much trouble for you to deal with, even my trivial questions. I felt you were giving me a personal service and that my request mattered to you. I also was of the opinion that there was loads of help and advice in reserve if I needed it.
My daughter and a friend arranged the flowers themselves and we were all pleased with the result. Thanks again for the service you provide.”
If you are planning your own DIY wedding flowers please do get in touch as we are more than happy to give as much or as little help and advice as you may need.
We always love it when Brides send us their wedding photographs and these taken by Nicki Feltham Photography of Sally and James’ February wedding at The Inglenook Hotel, Pagham, West Sussex are no exception.
Sally works for an airline and during a flight happened to be talking to one of her colleagues about her wedding and the fact that she still had to book her flowers. Her fellow crew member had already booked her wedding flowers with us so suggested Sally get in touch and the rest they say is history! Sally emailed us with her requirements and the end result was beautiful bouquets of Pearl Avalanche Roses, Jana Spray Roses, Cream Lisianthus and Silver Brunia to create the beautiful vintage look she wished to create.
We hope you love the photographs as much as we do
