I absolutely love working with couples as they plan and bring to life their wedding day. My style is natural and hugely influenced by the seasons. I really enjoy contrasting blousy and romantic alongside raggedy and wild, anchored with solid, industrial forms. However, more than anything I want to create arrangements that will make your heart thump with joy and provide an element of your day that will surprise and delight you!
Information about the services provided by Rachel Grimes Flowers are outlined below
Bespoke Floral Design
This is at the heart of my business – everything from the order I make with my wholesaler to the individual flowers I chose for your buttonholes I do only with your wedding in mind.
Always popular, alongside many other hair flower options.
Large Scale Installations
I have a few special made stands that can be used to help create these large statement pieces and I love a challenge!
Last Minute Orders
I am always happy to talk with any couple, though last minute can be difficult.
This is one of the most important parts of my process – meeting the couple and getting a really clear idea of the atmosphere and style you want to produce for your day.
I love to see the flowers come together with the other elements on the day – it’s a real priviledge to be part of a wedding so it’s a joy to set up.
Shop / Studio
I have a small scruffy studio anyone is welcome to visit on request though usually this space is kept fairly private.
Vase / Vessel Hire
This is something I’ve expanded recently and I often buy in particular designs for couples to use.
It was really important to me that I chose a local and independent florist, and I fell head over heels with the style of your work – just looking at your website made me smile! From then on the process of contacting and meeting you, followed by choosing the flowers/style of bouquet and decorations I wanted was lovely, because firstly you are so approachable and friendly, and secondly relaxed – I think it helped that it felt like it was something you really genuinely loved to do! Also, having someone who you feel you can trust to interpret your ideas is incredibly reassuring.
…looking back at the photos, they look even more beautiful than I think I realised in the moment! The Saturday bouquet definitely exceeded my expectations. It was stunning. It perfectly incorporated everything we discussed but also provided a lovely element of surprise. The size, shape, colours and textures were just perfect.
Rachel, I can not thank you enough for what you did for our wedding. As well as the beautiful flowers and invitation inserts, you made a very stressful time feel easy, and you were an absolute pleasure to work with. So glad I found you, and would recommend you a million times over. I hope we stay in touch.
