Francesca and Jonathan

We were so honoured to create the beautiful wedding flowers in Derbyshire for Fran and Jonathan last Spring time.

Fran really wanted Lily of the Valley for sentimental reasons, which worked stunning with her Peonys against her gorgeous bridal gown.

We asked Fran for feedback following her experience with Tineke, and this is what she said - made our day!

Flowers were probably one of if not the most important thing to me as a bride. I had a very clear image of what I wanted but also the meaning behind some of the flowers - such as having lily of the valley a favourite of my grandma who had passed away.

How did you come across Tineke?  Through (friendly) stalking of Instagram and Facebook. Looking at both friends of friends weddings, Derbyshire weddings etc.  I kept seeing what turned out to be Tineke flowers and kept messaging people or following the tags to find out who had done the wedding flowers. As each time no matter what colour or time of year they were stunning.

Why did you book Tineke? Honestly - it was on first impression - from the first email message to meeting Kerry and team in her studio, seeing wedding flowers in production that very day and just getting a really good feeling from the ideas Kerry had. That initial meeting was very important as Kerry listened, proposed ideas, wrote everything down and really made me feel comfortable. I had met another florist previously and her meeting room was full of fake flowers which really put me off!

How important were flowers for your wedding day? Flowers were probably one of if not the most important thing to me as a bride.

How did you find your experience with Tineke? Excellent - so much so I recommended to my best friend Vikki who also used for her wedding.

Is there anything that you would change? I would have taken/got the photographers to take lots more photos of the flowers. I wish I had also preserved my wedding bouquet or asked how to do it!
