Congratulations are in order! You are engaged to be married... You have set the date and booked your reception venue; now the real fun starts. After shopping for your bridal gown and the bridesmaid dresses, maybe you have already booked the celebrant, it's now time to speak to a wedding flower specialist.
Please…resist the temptation to assume that your local florist is qualified to provide the quality and style of flowers that you want for your special day. You really need to be talking to someone who specialises in wedding flowers and who has the skill and experience to take your ideas and transform them into a wonderful and memorable experience.
Let’s work together to make your wedding flowers as memorable...for all the best reasons!
There are many things to consider when organising your big day. How you add your personal touch is really important, and this can come in many forms. One of those forms is the use of flowers. Our years of experience can help you build the colour, style and beauty into your occasion.
There are many different styles of bouquets and many different flowers to choose from! Don't be daunted, it is our job to have the knowledge and understanding about what flowers are available and when they are appropriate to your style.
My credentials - I’m a wedding flower specialist, a retired floristry teacher, co- author of What Cut Flower is That? and I was the flowers consultant to Modern Weddings ‘Flowers’ magazine for over 15 years.
"Working in the horticultural industry, we have had the pleasure of knowing Del Thomas for many years, so, on the occasion of our wedding, asking her to organise the flowers was a ‘no-brainer’. Del’s many years of cut-flower experience gave us much confidence that she would deliver on our brief for lots of complementary colour for our autumn wedding. Del went to great lengths to assemble the ‘raw ingredients’ and what she did with the flowers and accessories was pure artistry. The bouquets and arrangements were simply stunning. From bouquets, to buttonholes, to large floral arrangements, to table arrangements, the standard was superlative, just magnificent! Often, wedding flowers blend into the background and become part of the scenery, however, Del’s arrangements were front and centre and drew copious praise from all who attended the wedding. We were absolutely delighted with the final result. Del is a true professional and she comes with our highest recommendation for any special occasion." - Jeff & Gloria
"Dear Del, Thanks again for the amazing job you did on my wedding flowers. You took my poor explanation and delivered above and beyond - the colours and flowers tied in perfect with our theme." - Regards, Brie
"Dear Del & team, What a wonderful way to bring to life your wedding, than to have flowers arranged by Del Thomas and Mignon Robinson. I was lucky enough to have these amazingly talented women arrange and display my flowers at my wedding. Picture this: farm wedding and a beach reception. Simple, casual and elegant. These were the key words that I gave Del to run with, and they delivered the most amazing display I could have imagined. Del is extremely professional and with a long history in the florist industry, and has a decade of experience under her belt. I would highly recommend Del and team to any future couples that are searching for a professional florist who makes arranging your big day, an absolute breeze. They are friendly and caring women." - Best, Eliza-Jane
