Kind Words


I can’t explain how touched I am that so many of the couples I work with get in touch with me after their wedding to tell me how much they adored their wedding flowers or appreciated seemingly small details. I’m so happy to share some of these kind words with you here and it would be a joy to see your names here in the months and years to come…

Dawn and Guy – The Elvetham

This is the lady you want to have to do your wedding flowers! I promise you…

When I first met Tarnia to discuss our wedding flowers I just knew I wanted her to be our florist!  Right from the start, she wanted to get a feel for our entire wedding so that the flowers complemented every aspect.  We had some thoughts and ideas of what we wanted but she helped shape our plans for the flowers and was there to help with any questions we had along the way.  I loved our flower and wedding chats!  She was so lovely when I went round the houses with my bouquet choice and we took ages to decide on our table centres!

It was never a problem. We had a very vibrant colour theme and until the big day you don’t see what you’re getting it’s just in your imagination. But, I knew she wouldn’t let us down. I knew they would be fabulous. And they were. Thank you for our beautiful bouquets, buttonholes, table decorations and flowers for our cake. Simply stunning.

Mike and Beth – Taplow House

Thank you so much for being part of our special day and helping make it so magical. The flowers were amazing! Better than we both expected and they made the room smell amazing. Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality.
Love Mr & Mrs Jennings and Eric the cat.

Jenny and Phill – Lillibrooke Manor

A quick note to say thank you so much for the flowers on our wedding day. I absolutely loved them – they were everything I’d wanted.

Lots of Love

Jenny & Phill

Roz and Simon – The Barn, Buriton

Tarnia was probably the best decision we made about our wedding and I can’t recommend her highly enough. I had met with a couple of other florists before I came across Tarnia and they tended to be quite impersonal or worse, made me feel like I was underprepared because I didn’t know what I wanted down to the last tiny detail. Tarnia has a wonderful way of listening to whatever ideas you have, understanding what’s important to you then turning her professionalism into making it happen. She must have done a thousand weddings but she somehow still made me feel special, which made all the difference. She kept me involved the whole way, letting me know what she was thinking and suggesting other ideas, with no pressure at all. She seemed to genuinely just want to make it a beautiful day – and it was. The flowers exceeded all my expectations.

We had a warm autumn colour theme with a touch of coral and peach to lighten things up and the flowers were spectacular, everybody commented. I loved them so much that I dried them afterwards and framed them. Thank you Tarnia, you’re wonderful at what you do and I wish you many happy weddings in 2016!

Annabel & James – Private Venue

We just want to say a huge thank you for all the beautiful, amazing flowers on our wedding day! You literally created the exact vision of what we wanted! My bouquet was perfect and the venue looked incredible! You made everything so easy and relaxed in the run up to the day and I really enjoyed our meetings to discuss everything. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Lots of Love Annabel & James xxx

Thank you so much for the amazing flowers your provided for our wedding. From the very start we both knew that you would deliver exactly what we wanted. It was such a pleasure to work with you. You completely understood what we wanted and didn’t grumble when we changed our minds! Your professional but relaxed approach was a great match for our personalities and we would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

Jessca – Rivervale Barn

Thank you so much Tarnia for the absolutely beautiful flowers you supplied for our wedding. The colours were perfect and the little flower wands for the flower girls were a brilliant suggestion – they loved them!

Hannah and Josh – Bearwood College

Thank you so much for making our wedding day extra special with the amazing flowers that brought the church and venue alive. Thank you for your amazing ideas and help when choosing flowers and designs. Tarnia is such a lovely person made me feel very at ease at a stressful time thank you Tarnia xx

Annabel and Lee – Barnett Hill

Tarnia – just a quick one to say the biggest thank you for the most beautiful flowers I could have ever dreamed of!!! Everything was perfect!!! And the compliments I received about them were endless! Massively grateful for all your hard work and just love your creativity!

Thank you, thank you!

Emma and Dan – Rivervale Barn

We met with many florist as you do when you start to plan a wedding but as soon as we stepped foot into Tarnia’s beautiful house/studio and she greeted us we instantly felt that friendly kind connection and that we had met someone that we wanted to be part of our special day.

Tarnia listened to what we had to say and instead of trying to change our minds and point us towards flowers that were more experience or larger quantities, she took on board from day one what kind of feel we were after and what our budget was! We wanted a romantic vintage elegant feel and for our budget I wasn’t sure this could be done but I was very wrong!

Tarnia was always on hand to help and answer any questions we had and we defiantly didn’t feel like just any other client to her! She made us feel special and loved which is how every bride and groom should feel through this wonderful time. And her cakes and cups of tea are to die for :)

I remember our last meeting before the wedding and we went through everything with a fine tooth comb and everything was perfect .. And then Tarnia suggested that instead of having large decoration down the sides of the aisle that we could for the same price have two large white pillars with a beautiful floral piece on each which we could have behind the register table and move to behind our top table! I trusted Tarnia and it paid off and our aisle also looked beautiful with simple rose petals.

We had planned our day for two years and I was so worried about how it would turn out – I had so much trust in all our suppliers but any nice will know what I mean! However as soon as I walked into the stunning Rivervale barn I burst into tears .. Tears of happiness! Everything was just so much better than I could ever have imagined and it felt amazing knowing that between ourselves and Tarnia and all our other suppliers we had created something so beautiful! That was the first (and not the last) time I cried happy tears that day!!

Tarnia even stayed to personally hand me my bouquet and wish us the best of luck which I felt was so lovely of her! Her flowers and her over all nature are equally beautiful!

I would and have highly recommended Tarnia to anyone! I haven’t stopped having compliments from our guests and people I don’t even know that have seen our photos about how beautiful our day was and looked and a big part of that was our flowers!

If you are looking for beautiful flowers with a realistic price tag combined with a lovely lady then you have found what your looking for!

Thank you so much Tarnia!

Lizzie and David – Beaumont Estate

Thank you for everything you did for us in the run up to our wedding. Our flowers were perfect and we had such lovely comments from all our friends and family. We were both so pleased to have you involved in our wedding day, you put all our ideas into reality, yet still exceeded our expectations! It was wondering to have you keeping us calm and the way through as we knew we could 100% trust you and that meant so much to us both. Love Lizzie and David

Malcom and Garry – Cliveden House

We had the most wonderful day of our lives and the day was enhanced by your incredible talent. You managed to combine perfectly our favouite flowers and colours with your own inspiration and skill to create magnificent floral arrangements for the ceremony in Spring Cottage and the wedding breakfast in Cliveden House. We love you for what you did for us, a thousand thanks.

Malcolm and Garry xx

Phillipa and Phil – Bearwood College

Thank you so much for our beautiful flowers, I can’t emphasize enough how much we loved  them. I felt you understood exactly what we wanted from the first time we met, and I was not disappointed. Bearwood looked just as I had hoped but better. It is possible that we are a little biased, but we think they were the most beautiful wedding flowers we’ve seen. With much love, Philippa and Phil xxxxxx

Becky & Matt – Northcote House

We just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for all the time, ideas and inspiration you gave us for our wedding.

From the first meeting we had we knew we had chosen the right florist. The passion for what you do is totally pricelss and it shows in the wonderful flowers you create.

Mr & Mrs Tipper

Amy and Michael – Monkey Island

Our wedding flowers were perfect and we could not have dreamt for anything more. Tarnia was the first florist (and we had met a few) who understood exactly what we wanted from day one (which probably wasn’t easy given our limited knowledge of flowers). We valued her honesty and exceptional customer service.

Again given our lack of floristry knowledge we left it all to Tarnia to use her expertise and creativity and it well and truly paid off. Our flowers were beautiful and a highlight of the day. So much so I was heartbroken to leave them to go on honeymoon!

Anyone looking for florist should definitely consider Tarnia. My husband and I would recommend her every time.

Thank you Tarnia!!

Sophie & Sam – Audley’s Wood Hotel

Just a quick note to say thank you ever so much for providing such beautiful flowers for our wedding. They were such a special part of the day and we got so many comments on how stunningly they were arranged (and matched the shoes perfectly)! You really brought all the ideas to life, having helped me articulate them with your boundless knowledge on colour, season, shape and style. Thanks again, I’ll be wholeheartedly recommending you to friends. Love Sophie (Mrs Ross)

Andy and Sam – Henley Town Hall

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for  making everything wedding flower related so simple and easy for us. The flowers were more beautiful that imagined and we were both so glad we met you!!

Love Any and Sam

Annabel and Hugh – Wasing Park

I just wanted to say thank you so much for our amazing flowers, everything was just perfect!  When I had a sneak peak in the castle barn before the wedding breakfast, I was just overwhelmed it was better than I’d imagined!  You really interpreted my vision and I am so grateful for your talent and skills.

Best Wishes, Annabel

Chelsea and Matthew – Clock Barn

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all our flowers you made for the wedding day. I was completely amazed firstly when you brought our bouquets in the morning and then again when we got inside the venue.

It was so so much better than we ever imagined it would be. Everybody commented on the flowers and the colours used and said they were perfect! In the venue you added so many extra flowers to the ladder table plan, tables and the order of events sign which we hadn’t even asked for but those little touches made everything so so special.

And if that wasn’t enough..we came home from honeymoon to find a gorgeous vase from you and a little card with all the flowers in! It was just perfect and so unexpected!

We haven’t received our photos yet but will definitely send any pictures of flowers over to you when we get them. I’ll 100% be recommending you to anyone I know getting married. I’d love to leave a review as well – where would be best for me to do this?

Once again, thank you so much for everything. You were amazing!

Jenny and Gary – Rivervale Barn

Just a quick note to thank you again for our beautiful flowers that you provided for Jenny and Gary’s wedding on Thursday. I sit here writing this with my mother’s bouquet in front of me and it is still as gorgeous as when they gave it to me at the reception.

Everyone I spoke to said how brilliant the bouquets, table decorations, buttonholes are corsages were! We certainly chose the right florist for the job. Thank you so much for all your hard work. You are a very gifted and talented lady – you must have spent hours perfecting it all.

With love and best wishes, Ann (Mother of the Bride!)

Sarah and John – Lillibrooke Manor

We wanted to say a huge thank you for doing the most amazing arrangements of flowers for our wedding! We were completely blown away and had no idea how much of a positive impact they would have on the day! Thank you for being so patient and offering so much guidance. I’m clueless about flowers and would have been lost without you.

Love Sarah and Jon xx

Ciaran and Ashley – Farnham Castle

I just wanted to say the biggest of thank you’s for doing our wedding flowers. They were STUNNING, better than I had imagined. We had so many compliments and people were more than happy when I was dishing out our centrepieces! I also left one at Polesdon Lacey in memory of my nana, the staff there were more than happy to let me leave it as it was so beautiful.

You somehow knew exactly what I wanted, even when I didn’t really have a clue and I cannot thank you enough. I will be recommending you left, right and centre!

With much love,

Ciaran and Ashley X

Ps. I kept the top table arrangement for myself!

Thank you so much for all your hard work on our wedding flowers – they were sensational! I was completely blown away by how they had been done and we had many people comment on how beautiful they were. The crown was a hit! You were a joy to work with. Keep doing what you are doing – you’re amazing at it!

Nikki Bennett – Lillibrooke Manor

If you are thinking about using Tarnia for your wedding flowers, please do not hesitate. She has excellent taste and created exquisite bouquets and buttonholes for my daughter’s wedding, matching perfectly with the colours and styles we wanted. We received so many comments from guests that it was the most beautiful wedding they had attended and the flowers were such a key part of the whole day.

If you just want to sent her a few ideas to begin the process, Tarnia will help hugely with her expertise and will work in partnership with you to bring your Pinterest board to life!

Mollie and Lewis – Gate Street Barn

Fantastic flowers!! We could not be happier with the amount of work and effort that went into making our flowers and centerpieces so stunning.

Ellie and Stuart – Cain Manor

We wanted to drop you an email to say a HUGE thank you. Although I’m not quite sure where to begin…

There are lots of things that you book, plan and make for a wedding that you look forward to seeing on the day. We loved so many different touches and elements at our wedding. However, without a shadow of a doubt, one of our FAVOURITE elements were our flowers. And not only our flowers but having the pleasure of working with you and having you involved in our day.

You were an absolute delight to meet and neither of us really wanted to say goodbye! We knew as soon as we met you that you completely understood the look and feel that we were going for and you brought our whole wedding to life.

Your passion for your work shines out of you- the flowers on the tables, the table plan and my bouquet are images that will stay with me forever. The colours, the variety and the relaxed, wild, handpicked vibe was exactly what we had envisaged. I remember seeing our table plan earlier in the day and then again later when you had sprinkled your magic around it with candles in jars and wild flowers. It completely transformed it and the corner of the room smiled.

I remember thinking it was very strange after I stumbled across your website, when I realised I had actually pinned on of your previous weddings on pinterest months and months previously without knowing who did the wedding. I’m sure this was meant to be!

So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a beautiful florist and a beautiful person. We will forever be thankful that you were part of our day.

Best wishes,
Ellie & Stuart xxx

Becky and Will – Wasing Park

Tarnia has a natural skill of taking your vision and making it a reality.

From our initial meeting though to the big day itself Tarnia was 100% supportive and just “got it”.

Flowers are one of the things where you have to put your complete trust in a florist, Tarnia completely put me at ease and due to her knowledge and professionalism I knew that she would create my dream wedding flowers. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and would recommend Tarnia time and time again!

Luyuan and Andy – Cain Manor

It was a real pleasure to have Tarnia as our wedding florist. She is so professional, responsive and reliable – most importantly, she understood exactly what I wanted!

I would definitely highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding florist!


Rachel and Richard – The Clock Barn

Thank you so much for all your hard work in making our day so special. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and when we got to the barn we were blown away. They were exactly as we had imagined only better.

You made us feel so relaxed and welcome the moment we met you. Thank you again

Rachel and Rich x

Tara and Mark – Bearwood Lakes

Tarnia – WOW!!! I love you!

I have been sitting here for about 10 minutes writing this email over and over again – the truth is I don’t have the words to describe how amazing my flowers were. I was literally stunned when I first saw them – they are the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen.

I am sooo pleased you were my florist! Your amazing if you ever need a recommendation I will happily do this for you – however I think the pictures of them will speak for themselves!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Hayley & Mark – Rivervale Barn

Thank you so much for your beautiful flower arrangements, they were everything we dreamed of and more.

Kara and Tim – Great Fosters

Tarnia was fantastic, she was a pleasure to work with & created truly amazing flower displays that set off the Church & our venue perfectly. She was also great at thinking of original & exciting idea’s & her enthusiasm & passion for what she does is contagious! I would definitely recommend her as a florist to anyone :)

Fiona and Richard – Cain Manor

I cannot thank you enough for creating such a lovely feel to our wedding day with the wonderful flower arrangements on the tables and around the venue.

Not only did you do a fantastic job are guiding us (we knew very little about the types of flowers we liked), but on the day it was great to see your smiling face.

The results were perfect and EVERYBODY commented on how amazing my bouquet was.

Thank you so much Tarnia, I will continue to recommend you to everybody I know.

Fiona and Rich xxx


Natalie and Miles – Coworth Park

I’ve been compelled to write this review just before going on honeymoon as the flowers Tarnia provided were nothing sort of spectacular, the tables when we arrived in the dark with the hundreds of candles were breathtaking, the diamanté vases, every area scattered with rose petals, the room literally took our breath away. THANK YOU for literally creating my vision. And on top of that being a pleasure to work with! Couldn’t recommend you enough! Natalie & Miles

Charlie and Craig

Tarnia was amazing from our first meeting up until my wedding day. She really understands the needs of a bride and this is what makes her stand out from the rest of her competitors.

I had been let down by another florist and Tarnia agreed to take on my wedding at short notice. I also had a small budget for flowers and Tarnia did not treat me any differently, unlike some of the florists I met in London!

Tarnia listened to my vague ideas and managed to turn them into fabulous creations! She recommended using Pinterest to share ideas which made it so much easier to get my ideas across and she translated them with ease.

I changed my mind quite a lot about the amount of flowers I wanted and Tarnia let me confirm everything as late as a week before my wedding! This made it a lot less stressful and we really appreciated her flexibility and understanding.

The flowers she created were absolutely stunning. All the bouquets, button holes and table centres were exactly what I wanted. Everyone complimented how beautiful the flowers were and even my husband who doesn’t notice anything!

Tarnia replied to emails so promptly and provided me with several solutions to any problems that arose because of our tight budget.

It is obvious that Tarnia really cares and enjoys what she does, we cannot recommend her enough. She is a true professional.

Mrs Lamont x


My flowers for my wedding were simply breathtaking and Tarnia got it spot on. They brought tears to my eyes when I saw them for the first time.

They were the extra special touch on our very special day and we appreciate all Tarnia did for us. Definitely would recommend to all brides who want something a little bit more.

Truly wonderful xx

Keren and Jamie – Northbrook Park

We both just wanted to send a short note (with a longer note to follow!) so say thank you so so much for everything you did for our wedding day. You made the whole process so easy for us, were so lovely, so helpful and made the church and Northbrook look incredible.

We have had endless comments about how beautiful the flowers were and are so grateful to you for your work, it was better than we had imagined. All the guests were delighted to be able to take home little vases and posies of flowers and as you saw the bridesmaids and I loved our bouquets- I only wish it would last forever!

Thank you for everything you did for us and for putting up with our endless emails and requests- we cannot recommend you highly enough.

Best wishes,

Keren and Jamie

Claire and Tom – Pennyhill Park

It was so nice to have someone as lovely as you involved in our wedding. You really listened to all our ideas and went above and beyond to capture them perfectly. We cannot thank you enough.

We have had my bouquet dried so that it can be turned into a paper weight – we can’t wait to see it!

Love Maddy & Chris

Emma and Jame – Cain Manor
