What do my couples think about my Wedding Flowers? – the Southwest Wedding Industry Awards

As you might already know I was awarded Highly Commended at the Southwest Wedding Industry Awards!  But what truly warms my heart is the overwhelming support and appreciation from all my amazing clients who took the time to vote for me. Their kind words and heartfelt testimonials mean the world to me, and I am humbled by the outpouring of love and encouragement for my alternative wedding flowers. Prospective couples, I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful feedback that my incredible couples provided:

“Working with Gemma was the easiest part of planning our wedding, from her initial process to working on the proposal. Somehow she took a very abstract ‘brief’ and gave us exactly what we wanted, along with great advice on how to make the most of our quirky venue. She was the first supplier I saw that morning and the last I saw that night. My florals were extraordinary, so many people told me they were the best they had ever seen. And it was great value considering the huge impact they had.” – Steph & James – Round Chapel, Hackney 

“Gemma was an absolute joy to work with, she was friendly, professional, and had amazing knowledge. She was excited about my vision which made us feel even more excited and brought it to life even better than I could imagine. We had constant comments about how beautiful the flowers were, the colours were bright and the flowers were so intricate and different. I couldn’t recommend Gemma enough! 10/10 across the board! – Rosanna & Yanis – The Square Club, Bristol

“Gemma was fantastic! She was really accommodating and her brand is absolutely awesome. Highly recommend her. Everything she does is beautiful.- Heather & Arthur – Hampton Court House

“It’s hard to put into words how fantastic Gemma, her team, and our wedding flowers were. Everyone commented on how beautiful they were and said that they were one of their favourite parts of the wedding. They brightened up every room and we were blown away by Gemma’s attention to detail, which saw us repurpose elements of the design in other spaces later in the day. Gemma put in so many hours working to create a plan for our flowers that matched what we had in mind.” – Fi  & Emily – The Holford Arms, Tetbury 

“ Gemma went above and beyond to create my dream wedding flowers! She was so easy to converse with and bounced ideas off of each other to find the perfect solution ! Always calm and had everything under control I 100% chose the best florist ! She even travelled a fair distance to view the venue before the wedding to make sure she could dress the venue fully!” – Rhianne & James – The Post Barn, Berkshire

“Gemma was so kind and helpful even before booking her for our wedding; she explained and showed everything in time and for our best understanding. The final work for our wedding was better that we could’ve imagined; the quality, colours and arrangement of the flowers couldn’t be more perfect. Definitely booking her as our florist was the best decision we could’ve made, and we would do it again without thinking!!” – Roxana & Gary – Manor by the Lake, Cheltenham 

“Gemma was fantastic on our special day and really took the time to get to know what we wanted and tailor her service. – Remy & Nathan – Fulham Palace

“Gemma was a warm and friendly supplier who really went above and beyond. From hunting down structures to guiding us on the best flowers that are in season and even sharing tips for wedding rental websites. She absolutely nailed the look and feel we were going for and the colours and flowers not only were to our taste, but also really suited the venue. Our venue was a listed building and a had a few challenges but Gemma was very professional and managed to navigate these with a smile on her face.” – Nikkita & Jack – Wiltons Music Hall

Reading through these glowing testimonials fills me with immense joy and gratitude. It is incredibly rewarding to know that I have played a part in making my clients’ special day truly unforgettable, and I am deeply touched by their words of praise and appreciation.

Moreover, receiving this Wedding Industry award holds a special significance for me, as it symbolizes the culmination of my journey in the Southwest wedding industry. Having relocated here just over a year ago, I never could have imagined that I would have the opportunity to work in some of my dream venues, such as Kin House, Euridge Manor, Sudley Castle, Dewsall Court, Cripps Barn, Tythe Barn and many more. It has been an incredible journey filled with growth, learning, and countless magical moments, and I am immensely grateful for every experience and opportunity that has come my way.

Looking ahead, I am excited to continue pursuing my passion for creating unforgettable wedding experiences and making dreams come true for couples across the Southwest and beyond. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has played a part in this incredible journey with my Wedding Industry Award. Your support, encouragement, and love mean more to me than words can express, and I am truly grateful for each one of you.
