Freshwater Flowers was born in 2008, starting from one wedding and has since grown through personal recommendations alone.
I can create floral designs for many different types of occasions, including corporate events, office contracts, funerals, weddings, you name it! My floristry career spans over 16 years. I started, as most good florists do, by undertaking my professional qualifications, acquiring my NVQ levels 1 and 2 at South Thames College, London. At the same time, I started to work at Bonfleur, a well established, family run business in Wimbledon.
No two weddings are the same, so why would the floral requirements ever be? As you can see, the testimonials are from extremely happy clients. I like to immerse myself in all aspects of the wedding in order to ensure that what I deliver is exactly what the bride expects and fits seamlessly. I will not even attempt to start designing until I’ve seen the dress, the venue and have thoroughly explored all options with the bride and her family!
I’m a Mum of two with time to offer you the personal service that you deserve for your big day. Nothing is ever too much trouble for my clients.
Michelle is so lovely and helpful! The bouquets she created for me and bridesmaids were perfect, exactly what I wanted as were the button holes for the groom and best man. She also created beautiful thank you bouquets for the mums and did the flowers for the table decorations. I would definitely recommend Michelle to everyone as she provides such a personal service – it feel like you’re chatting with a friend. Thanks again xJackie Boholst, August 2017
Michelle did the flowers for our son’s wedding. She is reliable, very artistic and includes you in all the planning. She gives you great advice to help make the day perfect. The end result was stunning; the church and reception looked amazing. The added bonus is she is a lovely, kind person.Elizabeth Grout, April 2017
Michelle did the flowers for my mother-in-law’s funeral. She was extremely helpful and thoughtful. My mother-in-law’s favourite colour was red and Michelle was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions. Needless to say the flower arrangements were stunning, the attention to detail was incredible. We had so many compliments about the flowers, which were the exact shade of red that Diana loved. She would have also been pleased that we were supporting a local business. Such a lovely and friendly lady, I would highly recommend using Michelle.Anne Moore, September 2017
Michelle did the flowers for my wedding on Saturday and they were amazing. Exactly what I wanted and everybody commented on how lovely the bouquets were, even down to the cute little button hole for my son.Helen Porter, 5th September 2017
