It had been a while since we entered a competition or put our self forward for an award. So September 2018 I took the plunge and entered my little business in The Wedding Industry Awards 2019. This is a client based awards which basically means our clients in a 12 month period cast their votes. Not only do they cast votes they also leave feedback which is then taken into consideration when the judging panel make their choices.
You can imagine how ecstatic I was to be announced the regional winner and Yorkshire and North East Wedding florist of 2019! WHAT!?
I would absolutely love to share our client feedback with you. As there is so much, I will publish them in 2 parts! I won't call it light reading but I'll try and pair each piece of feedback with an image from that wedding.
Here we go:
Katie was amazing from beginning to end. We spoke privately about my dress, so I knew she could see my vision for our wedding. She advised on seasonal flowers, cost, durability and style. Her attention to detail is phenomenal! I would recommend Katie to all brides.
Katie-Jane was brilliant from day one. Whenever we spoke or met with her, she was always helpful. She had a calm, patient but enthusiastic manner, interpreting our designs and requests brilliantly. The flowers and arrangements on the day were stunning with all our guests commenting on how beautiful they were. Katie-Jane is more than deserving of this award.
Katie Jane was absolutely amazing to work with, from first contact with her she was so knowledgeable and helpful. We live in the North West so weren’t close to the venue or The Garden Studio, however Katie Jane made that distance disappear and put my mind at ease about our flowers. On the day everything was absolutely perfect, it was lovely to see Katie Jane the morning of the wedding and even gave us tips on holding our bouquets, everyone loved them all - Katie more than deserves this award.
Living in London and getting married in Northumberland 6 hours away was stressful but Katie-Jane was brilliant. She had numerous calls with us and put together the most magical Pinterest board which brought to life our vision! Blush peonies and white roses where the order of the day. We had wisteria trees as our centre pieces and everyone commented on how amazing and unusual, they are. Katie-Jane has really great traditional ideas which she brings up to date with subtle contemporary touches.
Katie-Jane excelled herself with my wedding flowers. The only way to describe what she did was floral poetry. Excellent value for money and my venue was filled to the brim with flowers; the floral arrangements really complimented the age/styling of the building, which was a medieval banqueting hall. Katie-Jane listened intently to my vision and went above and beyond all of my expectations. Her communication was second to none and I felt really safe and secure throughout the whole process.
If I could have given more than 10, I would have Katie at garden studio was amazing and took our idea of Christmas themed to the next level and have us something we could never have imagined.
Katie is such a professional, friendly florist! Her flowers are so beautiful, she captured our dream perfectly! Highly recommended!
She was able to create exactly what I wanted and so easily with what little description I gave. The flowers were faultless on the day and have lasted so long. Also Katie was really creative with ideas to get what I wanted along with helping to save me money where possible. So please with the flowers I’d
chose Garden Studio again and wouldn’t change a thing with the flowers.
Katie was amazing. She was really enthusiastic about our ideas. She spray painted pumpkins and squashes to go with my colour theme. The flowers were beautiful and lasted for ages. Our wedding guests were talking about the unique flower arrangements for a while after the wedding.
Amazing amazing amazing! Couldn’t fault anything Katie Jayne was outstanding at understanding our vision and put it all into Healey barn! So reasonably priced and a dream to work with. Thank you!
I don't know much about flowers, but I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding flowers to look like. With very little instruction from me The Garden Studio not only captured the vision that I had but surpassed all expectations. Katie was able to reflect the whole theme and feel of our wedding in the flowers, and they were simply beautiful. She was super friendly and approachable, great at communicating throughout the consultation process and I think great value for the quality we received.
Very friendly, lovely girl. Very helpful and had lots of time for us, when we were unsure as to what we wanted. We were shown loads of different ideas. On the day the flowers were outstanding everyone commented on how gorgeous they looked. Would highly recommend to others.
Katie blew us away from the start, professional, fun & a real & very obvious passion for what she does. On the big day she left our guests blown away by the work she did, on the budget we gave her. Every detail we had discussed in our consultation's came to life & her work really did make the wedding day look all come together. I still have my bouquet to this day drying beautifully. Katie is exceptionally talented & I'm truly excited to see how she continues to grow & develop her work.
The moment we met Katie at the Garden Studio we were instantly reassured that she would be able to create our vision for our wedding day. We showed her one picture in Pinterest and she created something so much better than we could have asked for! The colour scheme was spot on and Katie added rose gold detailed leaves everywhere, orchids, tropical foliage, a gorgeous canopy, high risers, all sorts of details which looked outstanding and was noticed by
everyone! Katie made our day look incredible!
Katie couldn’t have been any better! We first visited her 2 years before our date and then we didn’t see her again till 12 weeks before and she still perfectly remembered what we wanted and had the most amazing mood board. I worried for nothing. She did everything!
Amazing from the beginning. Customer service was outstanding. Always replied to emails and calls and always gave great suggestions for budget. Quality of work was amazing. Would 100% recommend.
Katie was absolutely amazing. I didn’t have a clue about flowers I just showed her a few pictures of some flowers I liked then she just worked her magic! She even made a Pinterest board for us for inspiration. When my wedding flowers arrived on the morning I was overwhelmed, I told Katie I wanted a big bouquet but the one she made me was HUGE and more than I could’ve dreamed of. The centrepieces were stunning and exactly what I wanted! Couldn’t recommend Katie enough she is incredible.
Well you made it to the end of part one! Thanks for taking the time to read through these amazing words from our clients!
