The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards
For the second year running we were shortlisted as regional finalists in The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards, Wedding Florist of The Year; we cannot express our gratitude enough for the recognition. The Wedding Industry Awards mean so much to us because it is only the Brides and Grooms who we worked with in 2015 who could vote for us. For so many of our fabulous couples to have written such amazing comments means so much to us.
Elegant Stems is a family run business and every wedding we work on is a labour of love and an honour to share in the joy of so many couples’ special day. Here are just a few of the wonderful comments and recommendations we received:
“Our experience with Elegant Stems was fantastic, from the moment we met Carla to the Wedding Day and beyond. Carla has a real gift for interpreting and understanding just what I wanted in flowers for the bouquets and the table centre pieces. The flowers were beautiful and kept really well for the whole Wedding Day and for days after, so the enjoyment continued. Carla, her Mum and the rest of the team worked so hard and the final result was beautiful. I would highly recommend Elegant Stems.”
“Carla and her mum from the moment we met showed such passion for their job! They work extremely hard producing beautiful flowers! Carla’s experience and knowledge with flowers for weddings and the time of year is remarkable. Showing and offering lots of ideas. Our flowers on our wedding day were so beautiful I can’t express it enough! All the flower arrangements, bouquets were to top standards and lasted for days even after our sunny wedding! They truly deserve to win!”
“Our flowers were exceptional on our wedding day and really gave it that wow factor. We had so many compliments throughout the day and after on the flowers. The service we received was all we could wish for and made us feel so calm and at ease knowing that it would be done perfectly. We had 2 flower girls who had fresh flower head bands and they were absolutely adorable and really made the heart melt! I feel that Carla really understood our vision and captured it perfectly”
“From our initial appointment I felt such a personable experience from Carla and her mum. For someone who was totally clueless about flowers they guided me in completely the right way and nothing was ever too much trouble. They’re efficiency and professionalism was second to none and I didn’t have to worry once about the flowers and my husband and I were absolutely blown away by the way they looked on the day. Simply amazing and I would recommend them all day long :)”
“Everything was just perfect, from the first warm welcome in their workshop to our delight to have such stunning bespoke flower arrangements on our big day! Flower quality, diversity and style were exceptional. They really managed to bring to life our wedding day vision. The whole flower planning was just hassle-free as their expertise is off the chart! Our guests were full of praise, definitely a name to be spread around.”
“Elegant Stems actually make dreams come true. Their expert advice and guidance helped to shape and realise my ideas within our budget. I didn’t think it was possible to have so many flowers and yet they made it so. They were always so helpful and accommodating, creative and enthusiastic, professional and warm. My flowers were my favourite thing about my wedding day….apart from my marrying my husband of course :)”
Why did you choose Elegant Stems?
“I fell in love with some displays they had set up at a wedding venue. They really understood what I wanted for my special day and were friendly, understanding (budget) and did not need to push the hard sale as their previous photos spoke for themselves. Both Carla and Jan are enthusiastic and incredibly passionate about what they do and your wedding does not feel like just another number/ sale. They were understanding when I showed the pictures from Pinterest that I had really liked but were also honest about certain flowers cost and availability but were always ready to suggest something else that would still work with the colour theme.”
“We were recommended to go and see them and the initial meeting was just so good I walked out with my mum feeling so at ease and was so impressed that Carla knew exactly what I wanted without me being able to actually tell her the flowers.”
“Elegant Stems were the most accommodating florists we had spoken to and gave the impression they had all the time in the world to talk to us. In their shop we saw examples of floral displays they were doing and lots of photographs and were impressed with the care they took and the quality of the flowers. We were very happy with the plans for flowers and arrangements which Elegant Stems had proposed, the service we had received and the very reasonable quotation, and so we did not hesitate in booking them for our wedding flowers.”
“I had seen the high quality of their work and the freshness of the flowers they used. They were also local to where I lived and were the florists at my friend’s wedding where I was a bridesmaid. Their prices were reasonable and they had a vast portfolio to help me with ideas. But most importantly their customer service is second to none!”
“Because they were absolutely the very best! They understand and interpreted our vision perfectly, the mother daughter duo are so human and down to earth but still handle everything with the utmost professionalism, above everything we instantly clicked, and they have the best vibe!”
“When it came to picking a florist for our big day there was no question as to who we would choose. I was recommended Elegant Stems by several brides who had used them before including my sister and many of my friends. People rave about them and for good reason, they are fantastic and I was not disappointed!”
