We love weddings! We work very much to the personalities and desires of each couple. Our team is imaginative and highly skilled, and will deliver an outstanding result.
We want to create the floral arrangements that complete your dream for your wedding day.
I trained at Wimbledon School of Art as a Theatre Designer which I feel has armed us with the skills to really design the space for weddings and events and not just what goes on the table. Creating the right atmosphere has always been our top priority and we do this very well. After working on theatre, TV and film sets for 12 years, I dreamt of being equally creative with flowers, so I started Lilys Flowers in 2004. My roots are deep in creativity and the results are top quality.
If I had to describe our style, I would say it is very loose and natural. Be it abundant, formal, informal or slightly wild it’s always in a considered way.
We are very focused on the couple and their experience is our main priority. We will only commit to two weddings at a time in order to prevent a ‘factory like experience’ and we always have a carefully chosen senior florist leading each wedding.
We do have a number of packages that we have designed but most of our work is bespoke.
If we are available we could turn it around in two weeks however, we do get very booked up and have turned people away before now. Most people book us around 5 months before the wedding but we also have bookings two years in advance.
If you have an idea of colour and style that is great but if you have no ideas about what you like at all then that’s fine too – it is our job to help you find your direction whilst you are planning your special day.
My favourite flower is the peonie. It is so beautiful and comes in so many varieties and colours but what makes it so special is that it is only available for a short window of time. I love seasons and when something is available all year round it takes the fun out of it all.
I would say that the Boho bride look is going to be sticking around for a while and even more so with this moving possibly into a Romany/wild/gypsy kind of feel. Certainly colour is playing more of a part in this and in the wake of the royal wedding, wild flowers are growing in popularity. Outdoor ceremonies are very popular and I think they will remain so.
I would want to feel completely relaxed with the person that would be creating my flowers for me and know that they ‘get me’ and my style so I can just get excited about all the beautiful things we had chosen. Trusting that someone has the vision to pull off all the ideas is very important.
