Flowers so beautiful you'll want to name your firstborn after them
"Mamma, where did my name come from?"
"Well, young Ranunculus, funny you should ask...."
Oh MAN what a minefield wedding flowers can be. Get it right and you're transported to some magical wedding-land of floral delights, get it wrong and you're in grim Baby's Breath City. Lucky our genius friends from The Sisters are here with all the answers!
What common mistakes do you see couples making?
A lot of couples seem to be a little nervous to try something new. We are always fans of different - and something to reflect the couple. Get creative! (Or if you’re not creative let us be!)
What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Get organised, so you can be relaxed on your wedding day (and your guests and vendors can be relaxed too!)
What don’t couples know about florists that they need to know?
I don’t think people always understand that we get up so early, we often get calls the night before their wedding or people wanting to make appointments after hours... but our hours start at 3:30am! So 8pm is bed time!
What your best piece of advice for couples planning a wedding?
Enjoy all the moments. Make a little time on the day to soak it in and look at the joy on people’s faces, also make some time to have a good pash!
What’s the most unusual wedding you've ever done?
Years ago we did a jewellery designer's wedding- it was a Jewish colourful wedding themed as a 3 years olds birthday. It was the best - pom poms, crayons, every colour and so much creative freedom!
What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked, and why?
Probably my sister Naomi’s because it was such a personal one! We dreamed of the day and flowers and ideas for so long!
