Bridal Flowers – Testimonials

bridal flowers

I love doing the flowers for weddings. I take great pride in my work and often grow the flowers specifically for the occasion. My bridal flowers are unusual because I grow the flowers myself and can grow particular flowers that you want just for you.

People say such lovely things…

We were lucky enough to have Lydia do our flowers & centre pieces for our wedding and what can I say…she blew us away! The bouquets were stunning and so fragrant! Butterflies kept coming to check them out during our photos, so much so, that it felt like I was in a fairytale! The centre pieces on our tables were beyond phenomenal and guests were wowed by them. Each piece was truly unique and jaw droppingly fabulous with detail that just grew&grew the closer you looked. Lydia has an incredible eye&fantastic artist talent, couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

We were lucky enough to have Lydia as our florist for our wedding in August 2015. From the very first meeting she was a pleasure to deal with, she was always very generous with her time, very easy going and fun. She is a genius with flowers and colours. I had an idea of how I wanted my flowers to look, I wanted a wild, colourful style. Lydia was able to interpret exactly what we wanted from just a few words we suggested. It was like she read my mind! She went above and beyond what I could have imagined. The flowers were absolutely stunning, everyone at the wedding was complimenting them all day.

I can’t recommend Lydia highly enough to any future brides and grooms! x Martina

I used Lydia back in December 2015 for my wedding in West Cork. She was absolutely brilliant from contacting her first go and to our meeting to discuss the final choices. I had a few ideas and we discussed them and she was very helpful with what would work and wouldnt. I found she was very honest with what was possible for my budget, which as a bride trying to keep everything in line was very good. On the day everything was beautiful and exactly how I wanted it. I wanted my wedding to be a relaxed day and the flowers with the easy going beauty definitely helped this along. I think this is why I went with Lydia originally. She creates bouquets that are details and gorgeous but makes them appear relaxed and easy going. Lydias pieces where just perfect. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

I couldn’t recommend Lydia highly enough! I had the pleasure of working with her for my wedding in July 2016, and she did an absolutely incredible job. Having no exact idea for what I wanted, I really left Lydia to her own creative devices and the results completely blew me away -the flowers were absolutely stunning. Thanks again so much Lydia, and wishing you all the best for the future!

Thank you so much Lydia for the flowers on our wedding day. The arch and the flowers around the base just blew me away! Thank you for the table arrangements and for sourcing all of that wood for us for our “woodland” themed wedding…it was just perfect and went so well with what we had prepared ourselves. You were so professional and full of great ideas and added that extra bit of magic to our day with all of the flowers and absolutely everyone was commenting and raving about them.They were just stunning. Thank you, thank you, thank you!xx

Anna Rochford -themed wedding flowers – Sept 16

In planning our wedding (August 2015) I felt that the flowers were quite an important aspect – I wanted them to create a beautiful, fresh and relaxing atmosphere with a touch of vintage that our venue hinted at but really couldn’t pull off on its own. What Lydia did was take my wishy-washy feeling and ideas and convert them into concrete suggestions which we said yes or no to (this was brilliant for us as we know nothing about specific flower types). She is a pleasure to deal with – professional, friendly and quick to respond to emails etc. She prepared a detailed quote with different options to choose and we were very happy with the price.

On the day of the wedding I was completely amazed at how beautiful everything looked from bouquets to the ceremony room to the dining room. I had expected the flowers to be great but what we got was completely fantastic. So many people commented on them throughout the day and my husband (who was not that bothered with the flower planning) said at least 3 separate times during the day ‘wow, they really are beautiful’ – high praise from a sceptic!

I cannot recommend Lydia enough, she is incredibly talented. Thank you so much for your amazing contribution to our wedding Lydia.

We have no words to even try to explain how stunning our wedding flowers were! I was absolutely blown away when I walked into the dining room of our wedding venue. My husband had seen them first and told me that I would love them, but that was a massive understatement! I couldn’t tell you how many comments we had about them throughout the day. The bouquets were stunning and the boutonnières were to die for (Lydia had some bacon buttons couriered especially for us, without complaint, despite my very annoying last minute request for them!)

We live in Australia, and so gave our guests most of the flowers to take home with them the next day and they were absolutely delighted!
We could not recommend Lydia or her amazing talents any more if we tried. We had asked for ‘happy’ and ‘yellow’ flowers (very unspecific), and she did such a beautiful job! I think even the fussiest bride and groom would be left speechless. Thanks so much, Lydia, you were a delight throughout the whole process and delivered beyond our wildest dreams xxx

Dear Lydia, you blew us away with your incredibly beautiful creation! We didn’t know what colour the groom and best man would be wearing (Blue) and the witness had insane shoes with splashes of yellow and a yellow bag, lo and behold your blues and yellows made it look like we coordinated the whole show! Fantastic!!!! Thank you so much.

We worked with Lydia at Vintage Cut Flowers on our recent wedding at Blackwater Castle. Our wedding was quite rustic and very D.I.Y, and I was basically relying heavily on the flowers from Lydia to set the scene and to lift the place. She arrived with an absolutely stunning altar arrangement bursting with colour, beautifully arranged and using genuinely some of the most stunning flowers you can imagine. She worked tirelessly to create button hole pins, garlands, bouquets, and she also gave us buckets of freshly picked flowers that I could dot around the venue in jam jars and vases.

She was very attentive to our colour scheme, she knew straight away what would suit us and our venue and honestly the flowers were one of the talking points for the day – even more so when I informed our guests that they are all grown and handpicked by Lydia in West Cork! Her costings were very reasonable and she was just the kind  of wedding supplier you would hope for. Entirely professional and excellent at what she does. I have already recommended her to many people who admired her work at my wedding.
