Rustic Wedding Flowers with acorns
How amazing are these flowers?!

Helen the owner has to be one of the nicest ladies I've met. In May when I turned up to her shop, the idea of flowers was a little overwhelming - I don't know my crocus from tulip. All I had were my pins and the kind of overall style I wasn't 100% sure about.
I took along my mood board of ideas and I know that Helen worked incredibly hard to listen & understand to what I wanted. Considering my emails contained descriptions like
"nothing too neat but not sticky outy either - loose and handpicked look - with acorns if possible and Honesty - rustic but not vintage - peach but not peach peach - similar to a burnt marshmallow and the rest neutral - Bridesmaids not sure, just nothing too big. The button holes again no idea but could the Groom have acorns and my budget is around £200"
A tall order for my florist - I'd put my trust in her that they would be great - When the flowers arrived they were so so so beautiful and beyond anything I imagined. Secret Garden had completely exceeded my expectations and that's not easy as annoyingly with any perfectionist and organizationalist expectations are unusually high.
The Groom's button hole is just stunning!
I've never felt emotional about flowers before. I let out a squeal of delight and my heart spilled with happiness...I knew that today was going be a really special day!
I took a moment to appreciate the generosity of kindness others had offered in the lead-up and on the day, overwhelming as I'd always considered myself undeserving.
I know Helen and her team travel so if you're not based in South West London / Surrey it's ok just pick up the phone and call - I promise you, you won't be disappointed!!
