My daughter got married at Christmas, and Lesley created the most fabulous bouquets, buttonholes, centre-pieces, and top table displays. Originally my daughter had decided on cream flowers, but after seeing the extent of what Lesley could provide, she quickly changed her mind, and had vibrant oranges, browns, creams, and green! She went from a simple half a dozen posy to the most gorgeous bouquet I have ever seen! The flowers were incredibly life-like, and several guests were trying to smell them! I have no hesitation in recommending Lesley - this lady personalises your special day with such flair. What sets her apart from other companies is the simple fact that she cares, and it's not all about money. Order your flowers by Stem Ginger. She's better than the best. Vivienne, Mother of the Bride
To mark the launch of The Co-operative's prestigious new 267,000 sq ft Composite Distribution Centre in Birtley. We held an official ceremony, where our Chief Executive attended to officially open.
My quest to Lesley was to create something simple, elegant and with our corporate colours to be placed as centre pieces on the tables in the marquee. I had never met Lesley and only seen her work on her website. I have to say I was not disappointed when I went to collect the most beautiful fish bowls with gerbera's and Lesley had incorporated our green and blue corporate colours in the form of liquid gel and the bowls were placed on mirror bases to create maximum effect.
Everyone at the event commented on the how lovely the table centres were and since then we have purchased 12 more from Lesley for other events. I would highly recommend Lesley not only for her creativity but her professionalism. Once again many thanks for your wonderful service.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you Lesley for my wonderful flowers for my wedding day. My bouquet was stunning and I received so many compliments throughout and beyond the day. So much so that not one person knew they were fake. I also had so many wonderful compliments about my centrepieces and stunning wish tree.
Your attention to detail really shone on my special day.
Thanks again. Mel Marshall. (Nov 2009)
Hi Lesley, Just to say a big thank you for the fantastic flowers you created for our wedding. They were everything I hoped they'd be with the added pleasure that we can keep them as a reminder of a wonderful day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company to anyone looking for something special for any occasion or event.

The service and flowers from Stem Ginger were fantastic! Lesley took time at the consultation to discuss our ideas and make suggestions on all our wedding flower requirements for my bouquet, bridesmaid flowers, table displays, and buttonholes including special ones for our mums. The materials used were of a high quality and the flowers were extremely realistic (nothing like 'old style' artificial flowers). The prices were reasonable and best of all you're left with your flowers long after the special day. I'd certainly recommend using Stem Ginger, Lesley was a gem.
A huge thank you for the beautiful bouquet you created for my wedding. Your interpretation of my request was perfect, and hard to believe they were not fresh flowers. My husband loved his Yorkshire rose button holes, being a true Yorkshire man. You even managed to please my mother-in-law who adored the bracelet which matched her outfit perfectly. I would not have any hesitation recommending you to others. Sarah & Hazen
I thought Lesley was amazing !!! She is very friendly and professional. I met Lesley at a wedding fayre and instantly knew that her flowers were special. When it came to showing her my pictures of how I wanted them, she was truly amazing and went into every detail possible to make my flowers special and unique. I was over the moon with the price as well. I will be recommending Lesley to everyone and anyone for any occasion
I met Lesley at a wedding fayre and loved her flowers immediately! Lesley did all my bouquets (mine and 6 bridesmaids), buttonholes and table centrepieces and I was absolutely over the moon with all of them. Lesley is such a lovely person, nothing is too much trouble for her. I would highly recommend Stem Ginger to anyone looking for beautiful wedding flowers at very reasonable prices. Thanks once again to Lesley!
Stem Ginger, Where do I start, Lesley's work is out of this world, when the idea of artificial flowers were suggested for my daughters wedding I was initially very reluctant to consider them. However after meeting Lesley and viewing her work I was completely blown away. The flowers set off the day perfectly and we loved the fact that the flowers looked as perfect at midnight as they did at the ceremony and we now have a permanent reminder in our home. Lesley's thoughtfulness, ideas and support during the planning and on the day itself were fantastic. As the bride's mother I wouldn't hesitate to use her again and would highly recommend her to everyone. Thanks again Lesley for making a special day, extra special.

I met Lesley at a wedding fayre at the Quality Hotel in Boldon and immediately knew I wanted her to make my flowers. As I was getting married in Greece I only wanted flowers for myself and bridesmaid as I was having fresh flowers on the day. When I spoke to her she told me that she was fully booked so I had to try and sweet talk her into making them for me. She said as I was only wanting 2 bouquets she would fit me in so I booked an appointment to go and have a chat with her the following week. What a lovely person she is, so helpful and full of great ideas. I was so impressed with her work that I managed to persuade her into making the grooms button hole to match my bouquet and a corsage for my mums handbag. I left the handbag for Lesley and was so happy with the flowers and colours she used, everything matched so perfectly together. I cannot thank her enough for helping make our day so special. I have already recommended her to friends and family and told them that they must book well in advance as she is so popular. Thanks again Lesley, I will no doubt see you again in the future whenever I need anything making. Many thanks and lots of love from Terry and Val

I met Lesley at a wedding fayre and couldnt believe her flowers weren't real. We made an appointment to go and have a chat and Lesley had some brilliant ideas for our wedding flowers, we decided straight away that we wanted her to make everything from button holes to bouquets. Lesley is so dedicated to her work that I had no doubt in my mind that my flowers would be fantastic. Lesleys flowers are brilliant value for money and you get to keep your flowers from your special day (mine are in a vase in my conservatory) I would definatly reccommend Lesley to anyone, she is such a lovely lady who takes pride in her work and I am so pleased to have met her. Thankyou Lesley for having a part in our special day! Melanie and James

I met Lesley at a wedding fayre at Sedgefield Racecourse. I thought her flowers were fantastic and so realistic. Lesley was so helpful and friendly and her prices were a lot cheaper than her competitors but did not not compromise on quality. Beautiful flowers which i get to keep forever. Thank you Lesley

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'. I provided Lesley with a colour scheme and a few likes and dislikes and from this she presented me with the most 'Amazing Wedding Bouquet' which was not only stunning in it's own right but complemented my wedding dress, the season and the theme of the day. Lesley also supplied all button holes, corsages and bridesmaid flowers and to complement everything the most beautiful table decoration, to be honest I can not put into words how amazing the flowers were!!! and most certainly could not do them the justice they deserve. A big thank you to Lesley, the amount of comments I received from my photos was endless and you most definitely did the Wedding Party and not to mention The Royal County Hotel proud,
All our love

Lesley is fantastic. She really done everything i asked for and added her own touches which made all the difference. A week before my wedding i was still changing ideas with regards to table arrangements etc and Lesley was there all the way to help. She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. My flowers were beautiful and everyone commented on them. I wanted something different for my bridesmaids (aged 3 - 12) and Lesley made me crystal wands which were so beautiful. I thank Lesley so much for all her help and patience and would definitely recommend her.

My mam and I went to a Wedding Fayre last year and came across Stem Ginger, i couldnt believe it when Lesley informed us that the flowers were not real, they smelt so real and looked it to. I immediately booked an appointment there and then with Lesley as i couldnít believe how good her flowers were and they were fantastic value for money. Lesley is such a lovely woman and became more of a friend over the following months! Lesley helped and advised me on other areas of my planning to and i feel her flowers are so unique as her flowers are made for everyoneís individual needs. They are better than i ever thought they could be. My wedding is in 11 days time and i cant wait to see my guests reactions when they find out they arenít real. Iíve already started recommending Stem Ginger to my friends and one of them is booked for September this year. I cant thank Lesley enough and cant wait for my big day with my beautiful flowers. Thanks Lesley and ill email you photos asap!!!
Thanks again Claire and John XXX
Simply the best, i love my flowers and i love all the buttonholes ect and i love Lesley!!!! What a great woman she is, she is like a friend as well as a professional flower maker. Lesley bent over backwards for me and made sure every last detail with my order was perfect. I cant thank her enough. Our wedding is in 11 days time and i cant wait to see the reaction when my guests realise the flowers are faux. I have already started to recommend Lesley to my friends and she is doing a wedding for my friend in September. Her flowers and other items are so unique as she makes them to individual needs and are great value for money. Thank you so much Lesley and I will e-mail you some photos as soon as possible.

Lesley did an amazing job with our flowers. They were exactly what we wanted and looked absolutely beautiful. On the day, no-one even knew that they weren't real. She adapted the designs for the bridesmaids so the smaller ones had flowers they could cope with. She was so friendly and incredibly helpful. She made everything hassle-free. I would recommend Lesley and Stem Ginger to anyone and everyone. You really cannot get better flowers, or a nicer person to deal with. Thank you so much Lesley, you made our day perfect, and we still have the flowers to remind us of our wonderful day.
