WEDDING FLOWERS NORTHERN BEACHES
We love that every wedding is different, and every couple unique. Small, intimate weddings are so special, as are elaborate, grand affairs. We create a flower story that starts with the bride’s bouquet and carries through to clustered posies or abundant flowerscapes for your guests to enjoy.
Meeting you, and getting to know how you envisage your wedding is important to us. We’d love to create gorgeous flowers for your wedding that will truly be a treasured part of your day.
We believe a personal consultation to be the most thorough way to discuss and quote for your wedding flowers, and look forward to meeting you soon. Book your personal wedding flowers consultation »
Generally, our minimum spend for wedding flowers is $1000, however some exceptions apply. More information about wedding flower package prices »

How we work
We start with an initial consultation, held in our Beacon Hill studio at a mutually convenient time. During your consultation we will discuss every aspect of your wedding flowers. We welcome any pictures, colours, Pinterest boards, fabric samples – anything you have and would like to bring to help us gain a clear understanding of the style of your wedding. We are more than happy to incorporate your ideas and flower preferences, and will advise you regarding seasonal availability, suitable flowers, and styling ideas. We are flexible with style but we will create bouquets and arrangements that are true to our style ethos.
Six+ months prior to your wedding day is ideal to book your wedding flowers. Peak season, October to April books out quickly. Leaving your flowers to the last minute (8 weeks or less) may mean we are unavailable and also may mean that we are not able to even fit you in for a consultation. You are welcome to check our availability prior to completing our online consultation form.
A consultation is the most thorough way for us to gain the necessary information required to provide you with a quote for your wedding flowers, and accordingly we do not provide a quote via email, or without a consultation.
To organise your complimentary wedding consultation, please complete the consultation request form, or call Fiona to organise a time. We do ask for as many details as possible prior to your consultation so we can prepare thoroughly prior to meeting with you.
Our wedding flower pricing and floral packages include GST, are industry average & reflect our extensive experience and floral design skills.
WEDDING FLOWERS QUOTE
Following your consultation we will email an itemised quote to you, clearly outlining your flower choices and prices, plus delivery and set up charges. Different style, size and price options are included for many items, as well as visual inspiration images and our T’s & C’s. We will follow up with you, but please call or email in the interim if you have any questions.
Your deposit payment (usually around $300-$500) secures your booking and our services for your wedding day. Payment is via direct deposit bank transfer only, we do not accept credit card payments. We generally we only do one or two weddings per day, or per weekend – this enables us to maintain high levels of service. Prompt booking avoids disappointment. We would expect to hear from you, and receive your deposit payment within 2 weeks of receiving your quote. We are unable to hold wedding dates.
Your wedding flowers are meticulously planned, and involve many hours of preparation. The florist who conducts your consultation oversees your entire wedding- from liaising with our flower growers, your venue(s) / wedding planner / stylist / cake supplier, etc, through to the entire preparation of your flowers. Other florists in our team may be involved with some minor aspects of preparation, ceremony and reception set up, or the delivery of wedding flowers.
We will schedule a final meeting, 4 weeks prior to your wedding day, to finalise all flowers, and delivery details. A date and time is set once your deposit is paid. Your final payment is due 2 weeks’ prior to your wedding day. We understand that many details can change as a wedding evolves, and encourage all changes to be discussed during this final meeting. Whilst we offer a complimentary consultation, initial quote and final confirmation meeting (around 4 hours of our time) – entire re-quotes, excessive changes, or excessive communication following the acceptance of your quote will incur additional charges to cover our time.
In the event that any changes to your wedding flowers are necessary, due to changes in seasonal conditions, unavailability or poor quality, the closest substitute will be used after consultation with the bride. When a singular variety of flower is requested we always ask for a second choice. We believe we have a very good understanding of flowers’ seasons, and together with strong relationships with our growers, there is very rarely any problems with availability. We will not commit to giving you flowers out of season, or flowers that are very unlikely to be available. We keep in touch in the weeks approaching your wedding and give your regular flower updates.
Your florist reserves the right to make slight creative or tonal colour changes as she prepares your wedding and again at set up.
ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
On your wedding day, your bouquets will be packed in a box of tissue paper. We will deliver your flowers between the specified timeframe. We deliver your flowers ourselves, we do not use a courier. Buttonholes and corsages will be clearly labelled. Please keep your flowers in a cool spot, out of direct sunlight, until required. Spraying flowers with water, placing bouquets in water or refrigerating any flowers is not necessary and can harm some flowers. Please also avoid touching your flowers as some bruising may occur.
Upon delivery, we will advise the bride and bridesmaids the best way to hold their bouquets, and we will assist the groom, groomsmen and parents with buttonhole and corsage placement, if required.
Ceremony flowers are set up according to times discussed. If you are using a stylist we will coordinate with them.
Reception flowers are also set up according to times discussed. Prior to your wedding day we will contact your venue’s event manager to confirm details and pass on our run sheet and bump in details for the day. We are thorough, efficient and run to time. Our planning is meticulous so details are not missed and we will do a complete handover with your event manager prior to leaving. Occasionally items from previous events can be left behind, and sometimes venues keep them as additional decorations. If we feel these items do not suit the style of your wedding we will ask your venue to put them aside for the evening. We thoroughly scope out the room once bump in is finished – little details are important!
