Every time I receive a note of thanks, I still get a little teary-eyed! Here are just a few of the most recent kind words I have received:
"Wow, just WOW!!! I cannot thank you enough, the bouquets, the bridge, the pagoda and the centrepieces - just so so amazingly and beautiful and WOW!! I couldn't have even imagined it any better, I walked into the barn and was just blown anyway, as were all our guests, just so stunning. I really can't thank you enough for making our day even more special. One more time....WOW"

It's been a pleasure and I would highly recommend your services!"
Alison & Adam, Hayne Barn House, Kent
"I'd like to say a HUGE thank you for the flowers on our wedding day. They were sensational and absolutely blew me away. My bouquet was beautiful and better than I ever imagined possible. The flowers in the barn and linty were perfect and complemented the venue and location. I can't stop looking at the photos and even have a picture of my bouquet as my screensaver!! Thank you so much Gwenda, I cannot recommend you highly enough."
Rachel & Stuart, Elmley Nature Reserve, Kent
"We can't thank you enough for the amazing job you did on the flowers! The flowers were fantastic and couldn't have been more on brief if you tried, if anything they were even better than I imagined! So many of our guests and the staff at Preston Court exclaimed how beautiful they thought the flowers were. The colours perfectly complimented the vintage organ that we love at the venue. I was over the moon with my bouquet and thrilled at the use of succulents throughout, including the little 'chick' succulent for the grooms buttonhole. The accents of gold worked brilliantly also.You were such a pleasure to work with and extremely personable popping round to our house to run through everything and to collect the ribboned jam jars. Thanks for pinning all the buttonholes on the guys also. We would happily recommend The Vintage Floral Design Company to any couples planning their big day!"
Karen & Richard, Preston Court, Kent
"We just want to say the biggest thank you ever for the absolutely gorgeous flowers on our wedding day. They were even better than I imagined and they looked fabulous at both venues. My bouquet was absolutely stunning and the girls garlands were perfect - they actually kept them on for hours after we got over the initial difficulty of putting them on!! Not only were you accommodating to my budget, you were funny, friendly, knowledgable and I felt entirely confident in your abilities. So much so that I didn't worry at all about the flowers again as I knew it was in the right hands. Our flat has been full of flowers since the wedding which has been awesome - the scent was amazing. They've just come to the end of their life and I'm so sad to throw them out! I will recommend you to everyone I speak to. You're a very talented lady and I wish you even more success for the future - you truly deserve it!"
Sarah & James, Asylum & The Rosendale, London

"Just a quick one to say a huge thank-you to you for creating the most incredible flower arrangements and bouquets for our big day at the weekend! The fact you were so accommodating with our budget and ideas at relatively late notice is hugely appreciated, and the flowers seemed to tie everything together more than I could have ever imagined! There were so many great comments on the flowers, I'm sure you'll be high on the list for any further weddings amongst our friends (for which we're sure there are many in the pipeline!).Those beautiful sunflowers will keep our wedding memories alive for years to come!

"What can we say..?! The flowers were absolutely stunning. The bouquets took my breath away when I saw them, the colours, the form, everything about them!

"Gwenda was fantastic!! I would recommend her to all brides. She knew exactly what I was going on about (even when others didn't) and not only created the most beautiful flowers for us, she was also always on the end of the phone to help with all sorts of other bits and bobs like tablecloths! Gwenda is creative, always happy to help and a joy to have around. I'd almost consider getting married again just to use her services for a second time!!!"

"I cannot recommend Gwenda enough. The decision to go with her for our wedding flowers was an easy one, as the flowers she created for our styled engagement shoot were absolutely stunning. The consultation with her at the wedding venue was really helpful and she offered lots of great suggestions. I was blown away on the wedding morning when I received our bouquets: they looked and smelled amazing. Walking into the reception room with my husband after the ceremony and seeing all the beautiful flower displays for the first time was such a beautiful and special moment. Gwenda went above and beyond to create our dream wedding flowers and we can't thank her enough."
