OUR NOMINATIONS for winning

 'Most Professional Wedding Supplier UK 2012 - 2013' :

"Emma rescued my wedding cake on the morning of the wedding by cleverly disguising cracks that had appeared in the icing (it was homemade) using flowers that fitted perfectly with our theme. It was tasteful and she captured everything I wanted with me having to explain very little. She also organised to have access to our honeymoon suite and created a beautiful display with the remaining flowers and lovely scattered flowers on the bed - a really special touch."  L. Tod, May 2012


"I am nominating the florist due to their outstanding work for our wedding. It was truly the happiest day of our life and Forever Green were integral to that. Emma Taylor dealt with us and her knowledge of floristry and weddings was impressive. I used to be involved in event organising and know the importance of professional companies, hence I researched an awful lot and choosing Forever Green was most certainly the right choice. They understood my vision totally and created the most wonderful atmosphere for so many parts of the day from the flowers at the church to the bridal party.  I was pleasantly surprised how multi talented that they were - Emma did the calligraphy for our place settings (all 180 of them), made the order of service booklets, created all of the flowers for the day ( including 11 bridesmaid bouquets and over 20 large centre pieces), made me a crystal bouquet for my evening dress and did so many last minute amendments on the day to things that were not even part of their role. Completely exceeded all expectations!"  K. Williams, August 2012

"Sara and her team were so helpful and patient with us as we planned our big day! She helped incorporate ideas from America and flowers that we wanted to use to make it so special. They deserve to be recognised for all of their work!   To describe Forever Green Florist in three words would be helpful, reliable and caring"  S. Clay, July 2012

"They did the flowers for our recent wedding. The gave us great creative advice, were flexible around our requirements (particualrly the many changes we wanted!!) and reasonably priced. The flowers were delivered promptly and were outstanding. A great little business offering super service; Creative, flexible, friendly."  M. Burrage, October 2012

"It is a joy to work with Emma and Sara. They always strive to add the extra touches which make their service so special, going above and beyond to exceed expectations.  In a nutshell I would describe them as ACCOMPLISHED, FASTIDIOUS, EXEMPLARY!!!"  A. Peters, June 2012

"Friendly, unique and accommodating.  Fantastic service for our wedding flowers!"  S. Turner, October 2012
