    Why should I choose Flowers by Marion over a High St florist?

    Firstly all of our flowers are bought especially for each and every client, we will never use old stock – we simply don’t have any. My favourite advantage is the time I get to devote my couples without interruption. Being online I can answer your emails or queries very quickly – you will have a personal florist from the moment of booking right up until your big day. I like to feel we offer a more specialised service accompanying you on your wedding journey – running a shop would just get in the way!

    My wedding is months away, how do I know you will still be in business?

    This is a very sensible question in the current climate. To try and reassure you first of all that I have been in business since 2006, have already survived one recession and also the pandemic. The fact that I have a website is proof of our professionalism, I have invested in a good site and maintain the site on a regular basis. Many small short-term companies will just run from Facebook (this costs nothing to set-up or run). My business is my life and passion. Flowers by Marion is very active on social media posting pics of our work, live weddings and new developments as they happen. We invite you to follow us and stay in touch. Don’t just take my word for it – take a moment to read some of my testimonials.

    What happens on the day of my wedding?

    We will already have discussed your plans for getting ready and where each flower arrangement needs to be. Bridal flowers can be delivered to you and we will set up your church and/or venue, I aim to complete appx 2 hours before any guests arrive.For large set-ups I will recruit the help of freelance stylists or florists if required.  Read more on Behind the Scenes Wedding Flowers

    Testimonials
    “We had our wedding just a few weeks ago on the 16th August at The Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich and had an absolutely wonderful day. We first met Marion earlier this year at a flower show in Bluewater and from the very first moment knew she would do a perfect job. Needless to say Marion and her team went above and beyond on the day and cannot recommend highly enough. Great service. 5 STAR. Guy and Caroline xx (August 2019)”

    “Marion was absolutely amazing at making sure all my ideas for flowers were taken into her plan, she sent me a diagram of the archway I wanted decorated, also did a mood board to add colours and ideas too! She has been absolutely amazing and when she delivered the flowers I was blown way with how amazing they all looked. Would definitely use her for flowers for any other occasion in the future!”

    Marion,

    Yemi & I couldn’t be happier with your stunning bouquets, arch and displays you put together for us on our wedding day.  We have never seen anything so beautiful, you took us out of London (as much as we love it!) and into a fairytale.  While we chatted quite a bit about the arrangements and bouquets we had no idea just how gorgeous our shared vision would turn out.  You are a true master of your trade!

    Eltham Parish Church & The Royal Blackheath Golf Club, April 2023

    Marion,  You completely executed my vision and I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful display. My arch was amazing and my beautiful bouquets were absolutely the spring florals I had wanted. The flowers lasted for so long after I was able to press some flowers and enjoy them for over a week after our special day. 

    The tablescapes were so beautiful and just completely jaw dropping. Weeks on from the wedding, I’m still getting compliments. 

    Thank you so much!!! 

    Kendall & Tom
