Weddings are our speciality. Based in Staffordshire, we provide luxury flowers with a relaxed and romantic feel, for couples looking for a truly bespoke and personal service for their wedding day. Our style is naturally wild and luxurious, full of understated elegance but we can cater for whatever vibe you're going for, and totally transform your venue! We consider it a privilege to portray you and your love story. Our aim is simple, we want you to be speechless with delight when you first set eyes on your wedding flowers and leave a long-lasting impressions that are memorable for all the right reason.
We believe the magic is in the details, and details are our passion. Each and every floral we create is infused with those all-important personal touches, and carefully considered details.
Getting To Know You
Getting to know our couples is what drives our planning process. It gives us the opportunity to learn about you, your personality, your style and most importantly, your vision for one of the most important days of your life. We want to reassure every couple that they don’t need to have an extensive (or indeed any) knowledge of flowers in order to achieve something that is truly beautiful and bespoke to them. During your private initial consultation we’ll enjoy an often lengthy discussion about your likes and dislikes, we’ll ask about your wedding theme and colour schemes, the church or venue, we’ll even ask about your dress!
These initial meetings always end in an explosion of ideas!! We’ll consider every nuance, the fragrance of your bouquet and how it sits against your dress, which flowers hold a special place in your heart, what overall feeling your flowers should evoke.
Sharing our extensive knowledge, ideas and advice, the design of your wedding flowers is created after truly understanding your style, loves and aspirations. We are here to alleviate any stress and make the journey of choosing your wedding flowers one which will deliver an end result to take your breath away.
We are constantly inspired by the people we meet and the stories that have brought them together. Our inspirations begin with the smallest glimmer of an idea; a swatch of your bridesmaid’s dress fabric, your grandmother’s cameo brooch, a mossy terracotta pot you like, magazine tear sheets or Pinterest boards. Together we’ll find a way to communicate your story, your personalities and ultimately your vision. We all deserve the fairy tale!
Our Wedding Service
We love to hear your wedding plans and talk all things floral!
The quickest way to find out if we can be there for you on your special day is to complete our 'We're Getting Married' Enquiry Form. We’ll ask you for some details about your upcoming wedding including your date and venue. We'll then get back to you, as soon as we can, to let you know if we’re lucky enough to have that date free.
If you’d like to understand a little more about how the wedding consultation process works, read more about your wedding journey below.
Wedding Journey ...
The purpose of the consultation is really to get to know each other better. It is so important that you choose a florist who inspires you and whom you trust. Similarly, we get to understand your likes, dislikes, ideas and inspiration.
Consultations are by appointment only, we usually schedule an hour or so for this first appointment and recommend inviting someone to join you in this experience. We think two people is the perfect number… otherwise, it can get confusing!
This intital meeting can be done face to face, via a phone call or Zoom. We will go through all your floral requirements from the bouquet to your reception plans. We will offer styling advice and suggestions as well as discussing flower varieties and their particular seasonal availability.
An informal chat over a cuppa is where it all starts! We'll establish a theme, chosen colours, together with the mood and feel you are trying to create; one which truly works for you and at your chosen venue. Our Wedding Florists will then come up with a vision that evokes everything to make your wedding.
Styling Brief & Costings
You will receive a detailed bespoke costing email following your consultation which will itemise each element of your desired wedding day florals, a ‘Flower and Foliage Recipe’, styling suggestions and ideas and layout options. This is of course just a starting point and nothing is set in stone at this stage.
You will also be provided with details to confirm your booking. If you love what you see, you can pay a booking fee, so that your wedding date is secured in our diary.
Once your wedding date is secure, we will discuss, share inspiration and make adjustments where required throughout the build-up to your big day.
A booking fee is required to secure your wedding date.
Finalising The Detail
A little over a month before your wedding day (6-8 weeks) we will have a detailed meeting in person, via email or over the phone, to chat through all of your final floral styling requirements, as well as discussing timing and logistics. This is your opportunity to make any last-minute changes no matter how big or small.
We will then send a fully itemised invoice which will allow you to check everything off.
Our Wedding Florists are at your disposal to answer any questions you have, and to ensure you feel 'wedding ready' - prepared, inspired and bubbly with excitement!
Four Weeks To Go
Following your final meeting you will be required to pay the full balance for your fabulous florals. This will allow flowers to be ordered and paid for.
Payment can be made via by bank transfer, credit or debit card or cash.
Hydrate & Flourish
2-4 days to go; Your wedding flowers will arrive at The Topiary Tree HQ and will be unpacked, conditioned and placed in water for at least 24 hours in order to allow the flowers to hydrate and bloom. It is vital that flowers are given this opportunity to flourish so that they are at their optimum on the morning of your wedding day.
1 day to go; The day before you wedding, our Florists are creating all your florals.
The Big Day
You're in safe hands. On your wedding morning our Wedding Florists will personally deliver, arrange and set up all of your finished florals and décor. We will coordinate with any other suppliers on the day as required and ensure that everything is arranged exactly the way you dreamed it would be.
We will then hand deliver your bouquet to you as you get ready, wishing you love and luck as you start this exciting next chapter of your life.
