Bouquets and corsages are delivered gift boxed and to maintain our high quality and freshness of blooms, wet wrapping of bouquet stems is included.
Upon delivery, our florist will show you your flowers, guide you on how to carry and hold your bouquet for the best photo angles. The flowers are then placed in a cool location until you’re ready for photos and to leave for the ceremony.
We then move on to deliver and set up the flower arrangements and styling decor at your ceremony and reception location as coordinated with your venues.

From the initial concept, right through to the wedding day delivery, Julie completely understood our vision and brought it to life. The bouquets, buttonholes and table arrangements were stunning – the stuff of Pinterest dreams! We cannot recommend Julie and her team highly enough. Thank you!”
Rachael and Edward’s description of the favourite moment from their wedding day brought us goosebumps, and its no wonder it’s a memory so clearly etch in their minds.
Their dream day was a simple premise of, “we’ll never regret simplicity”, and boy did they deliver. Simplistic, timeless and romantic styling paved the way for a modern affair that spoke volumes of their character.
