Rachael did my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes and top table spread for my wedding last weekend and I was blown away by how beautiful they all were, Rachael is such a lovely person and did everything I asked her to do and more, I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for artificial flowers as my bouquet was so amazing and I get to keep it forever. Thank you so much - Sam & Aaron - October 2018
Rachel was absolutely amazing to deal with. Her communication was fast and detailed and out of all the vendors we used, I was most comfortable that she had everything under control and needed no extra input from me. We collected our flowers a few weeks before the wedding and were blown away. So realistic and the arrangements were beautiful. On the day, the flowers added to every photograph they were in and we received many compliments. Thank you so much Rachel, we really loved dealing with you - Katy & Martyn - September 2018
I first met Rachel at the Hawth Wedding Fair in Crawley. I was drawn to her stand immediately by her beautiful display and was so surprised to see that all of her flower’s were artificial. I loved the idea of getting to keep my bouquet forever and as I was marrying abroad, it meant I could take my flowers with me. I booked a consultation with Rachel as soon as I could.
On consultation day, I was so impressed with her office and stock of artificial flowers. After showing her some pictures of what I wanted, she was able to put together a rough bouquet for me. I loved what she had created so I went ahead and ordered my bouquet, my bridesmaids bouquet, 3 button holes and also 2 floral table displays.
Rachel is incredibly talented and an absolute joy to be around. I could have chatted to her for hours!
I highly recommend her, especially if your are marrying abroad or you’re after specific flowers that you can’t get all year round.
I’ve attached some photo’s below so you can see just how beautiful and versatile her floral displays are.
Thanks again Rachel! - Bianca & Alan - August 2018
Rachel was absolutely amazing and was recommended to us. Her communication was great as we lived so far away and was updated regularly. The flowers were stunning which looked real and very high quality. She dealt with all my little issues and even sourced the actual flowers I wanted with ease and professionalism. Thank you Rachel you are a superstar. - Natalie & Matthew - - June 2018
Rachel was the perfect supplier to be in contact with, we went to her workshop and was wowed by all the styles of flowers and types there were. She helped us design our flowers and helped us to decide what to go for. I changed my mind on my bouquet a few months before and nothing was too hard for Rachel. I also got a throwing bouquet as I wanted to keep mine. I now look at it every day which is so amazing as fresh flowers would be dead by now. I was wowed by all our flowers, you are one incredible woman. thank you so much - Jenny & Martin - April 2017
I received my flowers for my wedding in 2 weeks and I have to say I was blown away! They are beautiful. I was worried about ordering artificial flowers as I didnt know whether artificial flowers would be good as the real thing! I really didnt know how they would turn out when I opened them yesterday, it was very risky as if I wasnt happy it was far too late to change anything!. Rachel is very professional and always on hand to answer any queries and help and the flowers came out exactly how I had asked. I had been quite stressed about the flowers and worried that wouldnt be how I had requested but they were perfect. I would recommend Rachel to anyone she has been amazing from start to finish and I look forward to sending the photos over after my big day - xx Sara and Dan - April 2017
Thank you so much for my beautiful wedding bouquets and top table garlands, for my and Nigels wedding at Wiston House on the 7th January. You guided me from start to finish and beyond. When I came to pick up my flowers I was blown away by their beauty and the way you presented these were wonderful. I nearly cried when I set my eyes on them. Even when we decided we needed 2 more buttonholes you helped me immediately and posted these to me, this meant so much, Thank you again xx - Jenny & Nigel - January 2017
What can I say? from the minute I sent my enquiry to the second I closed my car door with all the flowers in it, I couldn't have asked for a better person to have dealt with, such a friendly kind loving lady. Her work shop was amazing so clean and well organised. Our flowers were just what we wanted. The small details like the diamantes were lovely. We had compliments all day about our flowers and people thought they were real until they touched them. Our flowers really brought our wedding together. Thank you - Cassandra and Richard - November 2016
Thank you so much for my flowers, they looked fab and were so realistic that they (the venue) kept putting them in water! Lovely lady, beautiful flowers, Thank you xx Helen - October 2016

We first met Rachel at a wedding event in London Olympia. We couldnt get over how real the flowers looked and were totally sold on the fact we wanted Rachel to do our flowers for our special day. When we met Rachel for our consultation she understood our colour schemes and designs and really made us feel special (unlike the florist we had met before) our flowers on our actual day looked amazing and so many people thought they were real - Thank you Rachel for all the amazing work - Paul & Donna - May 2016

Dear Rachel, We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the part you played in making our wedding so special. It was without doubt the happiest day in our lives and every aspect went perfectly. The flowers you produced were of the highest quality and we cannot thank you enough for the excellent service you provided throughout the whole process from ordering through to delivery. We received a number of wonderful comments from friends and family, many of who could not tell that they were silk and one who tried to smell them!. The cake toppers also worked exceptionally well and we have been able to give the two larger ones to our parents as mementos of the day. We count ourselves very lucky that we were able to keep some of the key flowers, namely the magnificent bridal bouquet, as a reminder of the day for the rest of our lives – Kind Regards Lieutenant Nicholas Stone and Mrs Louise Stone – June 2012

Everything was spot on with my flowers. The colours complimented the outfits perfectly and most of our guests were surprised they were artificial.

Rachel is lovely, she listened to everything we wanted for our wedding flowers and ensured she make them so personal to us. I would highly recommend using budding sensations - Carly & Thomas - August 2018
All I can say is THANK YOU so much! Rachel is an absolutely lovely lady, who is so dedicated to her brides. From our very first meeting, I knew that Rachel was going to provide a service like no other. The service was so personal and it was great to see that Rachel was just as excited about our wedding as we were. There was no job too big for her, she even journeyed for a couple of hours in the snow to make sure the rooms looked perfect on the big day!
Rachel certainly went above and beyond for our wedding - I felt like she really knew what we wanted, especially when she had bought gold glitter acorns as a special addition to my bouquet! I had also bought some lanterns to decorate the room - Rachel took these and made them into beautiful masterpieces with fairy lights and robins (an emotional addition to ensure my Grandad was with us in spirt!)
So many people commented on how beautiful the flowers were and were in utter disbelief when I said they were artificial - I'm so happy I get to keep them all too!
Thank you once again Rachel - we really appreciate all your hard work - Leanne & Carlos - January 2018
Rachel is one of the nicest people you could ever wish to deal with when planning your special day!!, from the first time we met to our consultation, communication etc during the run up to the wedding, nothing was too much trouble. We even added a bear to our order and Rachel handmade the dress to match our baby's flower girl dress. I really cant recommend Rachel enough. If you need an amazingly helpful and professional florist to make your flowers for your big day as perfect as possible, then Rachel is definitely the lady to us!! - Kate & Gavin - April 2017
