From start to end I cannot fault Rose and Alice's attention to detail, creativity and professionalism, they truly are a wonderful team who will make your dreams become a reality (if not more!)
From the moment I got engaged, I only knew one thing about my wedding, it would be in Autumn. Flowers hadn't even entered my mind and then when I started searching on pintrest "wedding flowers - Autumn", I became a bit overwhelmed with the obvious autumnal palettes and same fresh flowers being rehashed again and again. On a girls weekend in Barcelona, I stumbled across an amazing florist that had installations and bouquets for sale which were mainly dried flowers and grasses with a touch of fresh - that was it! My wedding floristry head went into overdrive and the pintrest board started to come together. Just one problem, Barcelona was a long way away from the Cotswold countryside, and there just seemed to be no-one in the area who could offer me what I wanted. Until the stars aligned and I heard that an old school friend of mine was thinking of starting a floristry business, with the "dried" element being a focus - bingo!
From initial conversations with Rose and Alice, it was obvious we were on the same page, their simplified questions to get into my "bridal" head were unintrusive and easy to answer, and with the answers they created stunning hand drawn designs for their vision for mine and Phils wedding.
I was keen on one vision for all of the styling and floristry and I am so glad I did this, it meant the whole day was tied together perfectly. Rose and Alice created absolutely everything for our wedding; the feature floral crescents, the wild bouquets, the added extras to chairs and tables, the ethereal flower crowns and more! Rose and Alice listened to absolutely everything I suggested and were even open for us to grow and dry our own flowers to keep costs down. Not only did this add a personal touch to our wedding day, it also demonstrates how The Native Florists are really in it to make your day special and personal to you and your family.
Rose and Alice were superbly organised, extremely helpful (they sourced a grass I sent a snap of in Argentina!) and wonderfully creative. I cannot recommend them enough to brides looking for a personal and stress free experience with their wedding floristry and styling. If you want just a small element or the full thing, you will not be disappointed.
Lastly, my wedding was one of their first and the wedding planner, photographer and videographer (who see thousands of weddings) were blown away by what the girls executed, and as the saying goes "the only way is up".....So if you're next, you will be an extremely lucky bride!
