Below are just a few lovely words we have been grateful to receive over the past few years.  To read even more good things about us, please feel free to like us on Facebook and have a look through our Reviews section.


 “We just had to send you our huge thanks for the work you did for our wedding.  You took our theme and interpreted it exactly into floral form, and we felt that you really listened to what we wanted and didn’t want.  We were absolutely thrilled with the flowers you provided and we received lots compliments throughout the day from not just the guests, but the church and venue too.  Not only were the arrangements beautiful but the service you provided was excellent, making suggestions and amending the order with every request.  And to top it all off you made so many personal touches (the olive branches from our garden, Andrew’s steampunk buttonhole, Louis’s mini buttonhole….etc) that all added together helping to make the day so incredibly special and one we will never ever forget.  Almost a week later and everything still looks perfect, it makes me smile every time I look at them.  I will happily recommend your services to anyone who needs a florist! Many, many thanks. ” – Joanna & Andrew


 “Claire recently took care of the flowers for our wedding day and I just wanted to say what a fantastic job she did.  We knew we wanted Claire way before we had any idea of what we actually wanted for flowers and she was great at taking care of us every step of the way.  We ended up with the most gorgeous flowers that really set off our entire day, we could not have wished for anything more beautiful.  She has such skill and attention for detail, I’m so glad she could contribute to the day.  Not only that but she is a genuinely lovely (and quite hilarious) lady and I felt like we could ask for anything.  Thank you again for everything.” – Samantha & Oliver



“From the first meeting with Claire, I knew she was the florist for us.  She is easy to talk to, offers advice with her extensive knowledge of all things flowers, and importantly listens to what you would like as a Bride.  The flowers she created for our wedding were exactly how I imagined them to be and I could not have been happier with her creations.  I would highly recommend Budding Floral Designs for your wedding flowers!” – Sara & Lee


“Once we got engaged there was one thing I was completely uninterested in – the flowers.  I was recommended Budding Floral Designs by a friend and when I went to meet Claire for the first time, it was like being reunited with an old friend.  After our first meeting I was so excited for the flowers, you could just tell how passionate she was and I left with a gigantic smile on my face!
Claire has been there through the whole process with a smile on her face and a creative idea in mind.  We gave her an idea of what we wanted for my flowers, bridesmaid flowers and buttonholes.  I also told her that I’d like a headdress and asked to her to run with her ideas.  She also created some beautiful table flowers and thank you bouquets which were simply stunning.
I would trust this woman with anything, she is so passionate and interested that I didn’t even want to look anywhere else.  If you want flowers with a personal touch, Claire and her team are your go-to people!  Thank you Claire for bringing ideas I didn’t know I had to life, for making me feel like a complete queen and for igniting a passion for all thing floral!” – Lora & Chris



 ” I recently ordered two hand tied bouquets for a friend and a relative.  Both of them were really beautiful and the recipients were thrilled with them – especially as they still looked fresh well over a fortnight later. Always a friendly service too.” – Sue



 “Claire, thank you so much.  The flowers looked amazing and everyone commented on how pretty they were.  Everything was just perfect and Zuli and David were over the moon with how it all looked.  I’m so pleased that mum thought of you  A great success, thank you!” – Jenny & Kathleen
“5* does not do Claire and her team justice, the autumnal themed flowers for our wedding were absolutely spectacular and left me speechless.  She was fabulous to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Thank you so much Claire!” – Matt & Caroline



“Absolutely amazing!  If you want a florist that really cares about you, listens to your every need, is very creative and wonderful to deal with, Claire is the lady.  I organised our wedding flowers with Claire and they were stunning, we had bridal flowers, bridesmaid flowers and buttonholes, plus all the table decorations which were all tastefully arranged.  I left it to Claire’s judgement and it was the right decision!  They made our day all the more special because there was so much care and attention given to the flowers being perfect.  Thank you for all your hard work the flowers were so fresh and beautiful!” – Toni & Simon



“Hi Claire.  I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail regarding the flowers you did for my wedding last month.  The colours and choice of flowers that you put together was completely gorgeous and looked stunning!  I really loved them and my friend said that my bouquet looked liked those that you see in the wedding magazines!  I love how everything was arranged.  Please feel free to show off some photos of your brilliant work – you deserve it!” – Yen & Yovan



“There isn’t much to say about Claire and her team other than they are absolutely fantastic!  She took the ideas I had about my wedding flowers and turned them into a reality; the whole time advising me on what flowers and foliage work well together as my knowledge was pretty much non-existent.  I couldn’t have been happier with the flowers she provided as well as the amazing craftsmanship and support.  The compliments from my guests about the floral arrangements were almost constant.  We would 100% recommend and we’re so glad we chose her for our big day!” – Liz & Andy



“We just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for the flowers you provided for our Mum’s funeral. You completely understood what we wanted them to look like and what we didn’t want, despite our rather haphazard information.  They looked very beautiful and natural and Mum would have loved them, it was so important to us to get that bit of the event just right and I think we did that with your help.  Thank you so much.” – Joanne



“I would highly recommend Claire and the team!  We wanted to use local services for our wedding and were so lucky that Budding Floral Designs is local!  Being completely rubbish myself at names of flowers and ideas Claire had her work cut out with us, but with some choice words I had, such as ‘rustic, Mediterranean & foliage’ she cleverly managed the most perfect bouquet and centrepieces for our wedding.  They were real works of art – absolutely gorgeous and everything that I could have wanted!  Thank you so much Claire and gang for all of your hard work, you made our day look so beautiful!” – Emily & Adam
