FLORAL PROCESS

FIRST CONTACT

We offer various options for consultation, including in-person meetings, zoom calls, phone conversations, or through the completion of our enquiry form.  We will gather all the necessary details about your event so we can provide a tailored design and quote that meets your specific needs and preferences.

THE DESIGN

After reviewing the details you provide, we will create a unique design and quote that meets your specific needs. We offer a range of options that can include not only flowers, but also additional décor items or full styling services such as linens, lighting, stationary, and other décor elements. Your custom design and quote will be emailed to you in a PDF format, so please check your junk mail if you cannot locate it. We strive to provide prompt service and deliver our quotes quickly while all details are still fresh in our minds so you should expect to have a design and quote within 48 hours or up to a week during busy times.

THE QUOTE

We understand that sometimes you may want to make adjustments to the total spend or the style of the design we provide. In such cases, we work closely with you to refine the design and quote until it meets your specific preferences and requirements. This process can take place via email or we can arrange a consultation to discuss all the details in person. Our goal is to ensure that the final design and quote are just perfect for you!

BOOKING

Should you decide to book our services, you do not have to confirm every detail immediately. Instead, we can secure your wedding date with a deposit and a signed contract.

CONFIRMATION

As soon as you decide on any additional elements for your wedding, we will book those in on a first-come, first-served basis. Afterward, we will work diligently behind the scenes to finalise your floral arrangements. This includes calculating the exact number of stems needed for each type of arrangement in order to create the desired look for your special day.

3-5 MONTHS BEFORE

At around the 3-5 month mark, we will pre-order as much as we can from our trusted growers. During this time, we will reach out to you first to confirm the quantities. It is always a great feeling for us to have the flowers ordered and secured for your special day.

1-2 MONTHS BEFORE

We usually confirm the stationery designs 2 months prior and place the order for them 1 month prior to your event. Additionally, we need to update the quantities for any hired items, such as cutlery or napkins, at this time. Roughly a month before the event, we send the final invoice, which is due 14 days before your day.

THE WEEK OF

During the week of your wedding, we gather the product we will be using for your event, typically from multiple suppliers. This is also the time when we have the opportunity to explore any additional flowers or foliage that might complement your chosen style. We dedicate a significant amount of time to processing and caring for these stems to ensure they are at their absolute best on your special day.

THE DAY BEFORE

On the day prior to your wedding, we work diligently to assemble all the floral arrangements we can. This is a usually a very long day!

THE DAY OF

On the day of your wedding, we’re up early to put finishing touches on arrangements, loading them onto the van, and delivering the bouquets. We then set up for the ceremony and reception, and in some cases, we may do more flower arranging on site for items such as hanging installations and arches. It’s a busy and exciting day for us, and we love every moment of it! By the time you are having your ceremony, we are back sweeping up all the stems on the workshop floor and having a much needed break.

THE FOLLOWING DAY

The next morning we head back to your venue and pick up all the hire items. We take whatever flowers you have left behind and compost them. A couple of hours of cleaning later, we are finished and onto the next lovely wedding.

FAQ

We often have couples reserving their wedding dates as early as 2 years in advance, with the majority booking about 1 year prior. However, we do accommodate last-minute bookings as well. We highly recommend that you secure your wedding date with us at least 8-12 months in advance and finalize your design and order 6 months prior to ensure that we can provide you with the best products for your special day.

There is a very large variation on client spends. For the average sized wedding a budget of $4000-6000 is sufficient for some lovely florals for your day, less than usually means some sacrifices and more might include some larger installations or statement pieces.

As the florals are all ordered or collected when this happens we can either redistribute those stems into other arrangements or create an arrangement for somewhere else in the venue that may have been missed such as a gift table or the bar.

If you require additional floral arrangements for your wedding, we will do our best to accommodate your request. The ideal time to discuss this would be during the pre-order stage, which typically occurs 3-5 months prior to your wedding day. During this time, we determine the exact number of stems required to create all of your arrangements. However, we understand that last-minute additions may be necessary, such as an extra centerpiece or buttonhole for a parent. Please do not hesitate to ask, and we will make every effort to accomodate to your needs.

To secure your booking with us, you do not have to confirm all of the details in your order. However, we do require a commitment to the same spending range (or within 5% of the total) at the time of booking. This is because we use this information to calculate the necessary hours needed to complete your job the week of your wedding, and we may have to turn away other bookings based on those hours. If the order is significantly reduced at a later date, we may miss out on the opportunity to take on another event during that week.

Certainly, we are usually able to set up items for you on your wedding day. We charge for set-up time based on the amount of work required to ensure that everything is properly arranged and in place for your special day.

After your event, all of the flowers are yours to keep, with the exception of any dried or preserved stems that were hired for use in your arrangements, as well as any vessels that we provided on a loan or rental basis. You are welcome to remove any flowers that are in vases, and we can inform you which arrangements do not have vases so that you may take them as they are. When we come to collect the following morning any remaining flowers will be composted by us, or if you would like us to leave specific arrangements for you, we can make a note of this and leave them behind.
