So I don’t normally do weddings between Christmas and New Year because the auction dates can be tricky meaning you’re left with no room for error. If flowers are missing or arrive in poor condition (it does happen - the joys of working with Mother Nature!) you have no back up plan.
This wedding was one I would usually politely turn down because the anxiety of the above mentioned issues over Christmas is something Id prefer to avoid however when Siobhan contacted me I just couldn’t say no.
Her wedding date fell on the 29th of December. The first date for delivery after Christmas was the 28th, if there were any problems with quality or delivery then I was goosed. I pre-ordered what I could and cherry picked the rest of the flowers from the live auction on my birthday (the 27th).
They arrived straight from Florismart in Holland via Cavalry Transport Ltd first thing on the 28th and every stem was perfect. There was a massive sigh of relief and even more so when I handed Siobhan’s bouquet over to her the following day.
After a really rubbish week with two poorly kids and one trip to A&E, receiving the following card from Siobhan on Friday meant the world... 🥰
I would just like to thank you for our absolutely stunning wedding flowers that you so beautifully created. My bouquet was exactly what I had envisioned and it looks just as spectacular in the photographs. You come across as extremely hard working, professional and a generally lovely person and we are delighted that we chose Stems to be our florist on our special day.
Love Siobhan & Fabiano x’
