This is how it works for a typical wedding. Other events operate on similar lines with as much involvement from you as you like.
Step 1. We meet you at the venue, well in advance of the event, to discuss what you want and roughly what you want to spend. You choose which charities you would like to support or, if you prefer, leave it to us to decide. We ask for a small deposit to guarantee we will be available.
Step 2. If you can, we like to take you to New Covent Garden about two weeks before the wedding. While there, you can see what is seasonally available and choose the flowers that suit your budget. No one has yet been disappointed because you select exactly what you want at a price you can afford.
Step 3. We handle everything else and encourage you to take home as many flowers as you and your guests can after the wedding.
Step 4. You then pay the nominated charity direct – somewhere between one-half and two-thirds of the total bill, preferably using Gift Aid. This payment is for our labour costs. For a list of charities we have supported please click here.
If you are a charity we simply charge for flowers and expenses at cost and give you the receipts.
