I would love to take this opportunity to thank Sam again for all the hard work for Talani and Jason’s wedding. Everything looked gorgeous, fresh and beautiful. She is great! Not only for the best service, creativity etc., but also for the awesome person she is. We organised together, chatted, and even shared a few tears. You can’t go wrong to make use of her services.

Sam, all we can say is ‘thank you’. You are the best! Our wedding flowers were perfect. My bouquet was out of this world. You went out of your way to get me the arum lilies, even though it was not in season. I can never thank you enough. You were always so kind and even the smallest thing that made you think of me, you sent through to me. I appreciate everything you have done for us. Lots of love Peter & Marike.

Thank you Sam for making our wedding the most beautiful day ever! You gave me confidence in my idea and made it a beautiful reality. You had so many exciting suggestions and you were my go-to-girl for all questions and worries (even if they were not decor related). You created the romantic french countryside theme that I dreamed of… I will suggest any bride to make use of your service. Xxx

Dear Sam. You were absolutely great! You were so supportive in dealing with, sourcing vases and giving regular updates! The flowers were beautiful, in fact, better than what I had in mind. Thanks again Sam, I am so happy that we decided to use you for the flowers. Our orchids are standing proudly in the living room – a great personal touch and something sentimental for the bride to keep.
