She was absolutely amazing!!! I told her roughly what I wanted and she couldn’t have been more willing to assist. Despite the short notice we gave her, she consulted with me throughout and made fantastic suggestions. As a result, I ended up with the most gorgeous bouquets, button holes, centre pieces and church flowers.

So what are some of the benefits of booking Eclipse Florals as your wedding florist?


Reliable & Trustworthy

I understand it can be hard to explain you vision to someone and feel safe that they will be able to create it for you. I understand it can be stressful planning a wedding and finding the right suppliers is crucial to make it an enjoyable experience. I go above and beyond for my couples and I wouldn't have it any other way. To put your mind at ease, I listen to every detail of your vision, am contactable at all times to answer any questions, tackle any problems and be there to make sure everything runs smoothly.


Flexible

There is so much choice out there! With all the Pinterest moodboards and Instagram saves it can become overwhelming and difficult to choose. Having all this in mind I allow unlimited changes to your flower details, giving you the flexibility and confidence in knowing that it is ok to change your mind. There are no additional or hidden costs! I am more than happy to alter details as much as you require until we find the perfect combination to bring your vision to life. All I ask... is that final details are made 4 weeks prior to your wedding date.


Bespoke Designs

Worried your wedding is just going to blend in to all the others? Want yours to be yours and stand out?

You're in safe hands with me as I design your flowers with you, making them unique to you. We will discuss everything from the flowers you like, don't like, any that have an important meaning, to your perfect colour combination. Your flowers, your way!


Simplicity

Flower names can be pretty awkward! Even for a florist, so I don't expect you to know every name of every flower you'd like in your wedding. Your version of what you call a flower is fine with me... "pink squiggly shaped flower", we will figure out which flower you mean! To make things easier I add the flower names to your bespoke moodboard for future reference. Your bespoke invoice will be itemised allowing you to play around with quantities and different designs until you find a combination you are happy with.


And of course... I get just as excited as you do for the big day!

Where do I even begin to explain how over the moon I was that Kirstie was able to capture every idea I had in my head and bring it to life.

Designing your wedding flowers with Eclipse Florals.


First step, get in touch. There are a number of ways you can contact me to discuss your wedding vision. I like to gather as much information as possible in the initial conversation to allow me to make a bespoke quote and moodboard, unique to you. The information needed can either be given via a verbal consultation (which during the pandemic is done via phone call/zoom) that you can book in yourself or by filling out the consultation form. I understand we all have different schedules so I am open to communicating in a way that suits you best.


Once I have all the information I need, I will create a bespoke quote and moodboard for you to review. This will include a detailed description of everything we have discussed, itemised pricing and all other information you will require for working with me. My terms and conditions will also be on the quote for you to read through. Your bespoke moodboard will include reference images to show different styles and designs along with individual flowers and foliage I believe will make the perfect combination. If you want to change anything, that is no problem at all.


After receiving the initial quote and moodboard there is no pressure to book straight away, however you are required to pay a non refundable deposit to secure your wedding date if you decide to go ahead. I understand it is a huge decision to make and I want my couples to feel safe and confident in their decision. With this in mind I am happy to answer any questions you may have and help with inspiration. I believe in making the process as stress free as possible! Have a Pinterest board or saved photos? Send them over, I love to see what inspiration you lean towards.


You secured your date!

When you've secured your date with Eclipse Florals you can pop the champagne! We will continue to discuss your vision, make changes (if any), design your perfect flower combinations for bouquets and buttonholes and get excited about your big day! I will schedule meetings with you to check details as well as arrange on the day details with your venue so you won't need to worry about a thing.


Four weeks prior to your wedding date, the countdown is on and it's time to start finalising all details. It is normal to feel panicked at this stage and maybe have a few doubts. If you think this could be you, I am on hand to discuss your worries and find a solution with you. I believe in validating your feelings and creating a safe space for us to combat the doubts.


The day of the wedding, you're going to feel a whirlwind of emotions. Fretting over your wedding flowers will not be on your mind as they will be delivered and positioned exactly as we have discussed. All you need to do is take in every moment of your big day and enjoy yourself.


If you're newly engaged, or still searching for your wedding florist, please do get in touch I'd love to hear from you! For more inspiration head over to www.eclipseflorals.com/weddings to view my wedding gallery and testimonials.
