Testimonials
I met Lesley at a wedding fair 3 years before I got married-long planning! I loved her flowers from the bouquets to the buttonholes, I couldn't get over the fact that they were not real and they smelt gorgeous. I love the idea of been able to keep them after the weddding has finished-gave them to grandmothers as gifts, they were so pleased. I expected the price of these flowers too be very expensive but I was pleasantly suprised.
Lesley is so friendly and helpful, she also answered my queries about weddings-I was a bride who didn't have a clue. She was always great at explaining things to me and suggested other great suppliers to me.
I wanted-something elegant-the colours were hot pink, black and ivory, she is full of fabulous ideas and keeps adding fab little details that you would never even think of. Lesley is great with the special little touches. When I came to pick up my bouquet, 4 bridesmaids posies, tablecentres and buttonholes-they were absolutely stunning! Even had a tear in my eye-I was so pleased. Everyone at the wedding commented on how fabulous they were and couldn't believe they were not real. I had so many compliments-the bridesmaids loved their bouquets. Lesley created beautiful mothers of the bride and groom buttonhole/corsage.
Thank you so much Lesley for all you help. She is very kind and friendly woman and I would definitely recommend Lesley to anyone.

We would like to say a big thank you to Lesley, firstly for the absolutley fabulous flowers she made for us.
Everyone at my wedding commented on how beautiful they were, no one realised they were silk until I mentioned it!
The buttonholes and boquets perfectly complimented my theme, Lesley understood exactly what I wanted and was always happy to help even when she was very busy. Secondly, when my Mam & my husband's mam were struggling to find fascinators for the wedding, Lesley very kindly offered to make them for them.
The result was fantastic! Exactly what they wanted! Lesley was always so supportive with everything and never put out by any questions or requests I had, she would even mention to me if she found anything I would like!.
Lesley really took the stress away as I knew, without a doubt, that everything would be perfect, I have recommended her to all my friends.Lesley you are an absolute star and I can't describe how much we really
appreciate everything you did for us.

"Thank you so much for the amazing wedding flowers. We didn't have much idea of what we wanted for the day but you really helped us to decide what would be best for us and the venue we'd chosen. They were better than we ever imagined and in particular everyone commented on how beautiful the table centres were. The flowers were so realistic and the finishing touches were just amazing. We are so pleased we managed to get you booked and have already started recommending you to our friends! Thanks for being so approachable and friendly and making our day extra special. We really appreciate all the work you put into the flowers. Thanks again for doing such an excellent job!"

I saw Lesley's Work at a wedding fair at Rainton Meadows and was thrilled when she managed to fit me in
for my wedding. I married in Kenya on the 10.10.10 and wanted artifical flowers so I could use them again at my reception at home in the UK. Lesley made my bridal bouquet, bridesmaid flowers, buttonholes and hair pieces. The female guests were very impressed that there were pretty magnets to hold their buttonhole in place as opposed to pins.
Lesley is one in a million , her work is beautiful her attention to detail and friendly service are second to none.
Everybody commented on how beautiful my flowers were.
I would 100% recommend Lesley.

A MASSIVE THANKYOU, you are an amazing lady just quite how you achievied exactly what I wanted is beyond me. I came to you with ideas and nothing definate bits of this and bits of that, but just sitting down with you a building that mental image of what i wanted was fantastic and so exciting I knew I had chosen the correct lady to do the flowers for the most important day of my life.I could barely contain myself when I came to collect the flowers and I cried and cried as they were all so PERFECT and looked so real, I could not stop staring at what is the most perfect beautiful boquet I have ever seen the colours matched perfectly and everyone was amazed when they discovered the flowers were artificial (I have passed on your web site to a number of people). Coming to visit you was so relaxing it felt like it was a family member who was doing the flowers which was such a relief at what was a very busy time.We raised a toast to you at our wedding reception as our way of saying a massive Thank you for all your time patience and such amazing flowers not just my boquet the bridesmaids flowers, button holes and of course the special button hole you made for mum our of crystals to match her outfit.

I would also like to pass on a special thank you from Mum and Dad they were so confident after meeting you that the flowers were going to be fantastic which gave them peace of mind and not needing to worry what with living so far away.
We heard about Lesley from a friend of my Daughters and we must say she is brilliant. Lesley has an outstanding eye for detail, is passionate about her product and therefore openly offers advice and ideas for the all important 'Big Day'. We provided Lesley with a colour scheme for the day and from this she presented my Daughter with the most 'Amazing Wedding Bouquet' which was not only stunning in its own right but complemented her wedding dress. Lesley also supplied all button holes, corsages and bridesmaid flowers plus a little bag for the little flower girl with petals in to match. Lesley also supplied the most beautiful table decorations; to be honest we cannot put into words how amazing the flowers were on the day, everyone commented on how fabulous they looked and could not believe they were artificial. We would like to say a big thank you to you for all your hard work and the effort you put into making my Daughters day a special one. We would definitely recommend Lesley to anyone who is planning a wedding.

Lesley is an amazing woman from understanding what i wanted in my wedding bouquet right through to the finished design. when i took the picture of the design i wanted to Lesley, she looked in sheer amazement and i think i recall a giggle! she went on to tell me that she had never done anything like this before and instead of telling me that she could do it 'no problem'. she told me that she would have a go and if she wasn't happy then i wasn't going to see it until she was. every time i received an email from Lesley with a photo attached i was amazed at how fast it was coming along and emotional at the fact that it was exactly how i had pictured it to be.
our wedding day was perfect in every way but it was made all the more perfect because my bouquet was perfect in every way possible. everyone commented on it and i would recommend Lesley to anyone that desires something they think is impossible to have. so thank you Lesley, for everything, you are truly an amazing woman

"After meeting Lesley at a wedding fair I quickly realised she was unlike any other florist I had spoken to. Her displays were fantastic and it was only after a very close inspection of the flowers (and her business card!) that I realised they weren't real. I had always wanted tulips for the wedding but after the seventh or eighth florists had said " Tulips? Oh no not in July!" I thought my luck was up. Until I met Lesley who assured me from the word go that tulips would not be a problem what so ever and she would be more than happy to show me all the lovely girly 'bits and bobs' that would transform my tulips from plain and simple flowers into an elegant bouquet, perfect for any bride! And that she did!
Lesley was so welcoming and friendly, arranging meetings via email or on the phone was never a problem and she always responded quickly to any questions I had. It was as if my wedding was the only wedding in the world even though she is a very busy lady! She never hurried or pressured you into anything, it was always about your special day. When I met with Lesley a little while before the wedding I couldn't have been happier (and neither could my mother who was offered a cup of tea straight away!) The flowers were fab!! Lesley showed me all the lovely 'add ons' and before I knew it I had 7 bridesmaids flowers, mine and 11 buttonholes- all slightly different! I was over the moon!! Lesley is an absolute star and so many people commented on how lovely my flowers were. I can't thank Lesley enough!!"

"I first saw Lesley at a wedding fair, at first I thought the bouquets and flowers she had with her were real until I spoke to her and found out they were artificial. When discussing what type of flowers I wanted she was so helpful and we discussed everything about the wedding, what people were wearing, colours etc so I got the perfect flowers, and that I did! They were absolutely gorgeous! Everyone thought they were real until we told them they couldn’t believe it! They look beautiful on my wedding photos and now my bouquet looks beautiful in my home, I can keep it forever and every time I look at it, it reminds me of the best day of my life! Thank you Lesley! I could not have wished for anything better! "
Lyndsay and Michael Robinson

After seeing Lesley's fantastic display of flowers at a wedding fair I instantly thought they were real, they were so life like even to touch. We decided to get all of our wedding flowers created by Lesley and I was not disappointed, she was the most kind and caring person and nothing was to big a problem, her attention to detail and creativeness created the most perfect wedding flowers I could have imagined. I would recommend Lesley to anyone, knowing they would not be disappointed.

Hi Lesley, Hope all is well, just want to send a little thank you for your flowers for the wedding, everyone loved them and the table centres are now distributed round the family and in every house.
Thanks Again

We hired Lesley based on viewing her work at many different wedding fairs throughout the North-East. She was always very friendly and welcoming and a joy to talk to. When we visited Lesley she helped us to understand exactly what we wanted and it is nice to have someone join you in your enthusiasm over the little touches such as wire wrapping around the stems and adding little red butterflies to my bridesmaids wands. She was open to any suggestions we made along the way and always kept us up to date on her progress. The arrangements were exactly what I wanted. They were beautiful and no-one believed they were not real flowers. The cake, was a simple white 3 tier piece but the cake topper Lesley created really gave it the wow factor. Two weeks later, my friends were commenting on how long my flowers were lasting! We chose to use artificial flowers as we were travelling to Gretna and it was easier and less stressful than organising fresh ones. No-one can believe the price we paid which was a fraction of what you pay for real flowers, and the brilliant thing is you can keep your flowers forever! Lesley delivered everything we wanted, she was friendly, creative, enthusiastic, created exactly what we wanted for a very low price, ahead of time and with no problems what so ever. I have already recommended her to many of my friends and will continue to recommend her.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful flowers you made for my wedding day. They were everything I dreamed of and more and made my day even more special. Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were, no-one could believe they weren't real. I still can't believe the price we paid, they were a fraction of the cost of real ones and were easier for me to transport to Gretna for my wedding, with the added pleasure of being able to keep them as a reminder of our special day. Lesley is very friendly, creative and passionate. It felt like Lesley actually cared about my special day and it wasn't all about money. I would definitely recommend Lesley to anyone, she is a lovely lady and I'm so pleased to have met her.
