Sarah Fraser: Adelaide was the perfect florist for our wedding day! She was very perceptive to our needs as not only did she understand our vision for a slightly more wild and informal approach to the flowers, but she was able to fulfill the wishes of the mother of the bride as well. She handled all aspects of the wedding flowers; from the delightful head pieces, bouquets and button holes to the decorated candelabra in St Giles Cathedral and playful hanging hops in the marquee – all of which we loved.
Emma Snowball: Adelaide produced the most amazing flowers for our wedding. She gave so much of her time to listen to what I was visualising which therefore meant she totally understood our needs. She also checked in with me the whole way through the process, keeping me up in the loop with all the details.
The end result really was more than we could have hoped for. The flowers were totally stunning, and commented on by so many of our guests. She created so much more than just simple flower arrangements, by using what was available in the area at the time, along with some bought in flowers she pulled together very impressive and unusual decorations. Adelaide was a total joy to work with. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough to anyone looking for a very creative florist.
Beth Wales: I got married in July this year and asked Adelaide to take care of all things floral for our big day. Right from the beginning I know we were in safe hands. After meeting Adelaide and taking time to talk through all our ideas, general themes for the day and our budget, Adelaide took notes and sent through some ideas and sketches for the table displays and installations. Adelaide had perfectly interpreted all of our inspirations and tastes to come up with beautiful, wild floral displays that really brought the countryside into our city-centre venue. There were countless compliments on the flowers and how they were arranged with candles, terracotta pots and moss; in fact, the compliments are still coming! Adelaide made each of my 8 bridesmaids beautiful floral hair-combs and the 3 flower girls had gorgeous fresh flower crowns. The button-holes for the groomsmen were delicate and intricate and perfectly complimented the bridal party’s flowers. The day before the wedding, my original plan of a homemade bridal bouquet failed and Adelaide saved the day right at the last minute by creating a stunning bouquet for me. I cannot recommend Adelaide’s Secret Garden enough. She handled everything with ease and ensured that our venue, bridal party and groomsmen all looked stunning! Adelaide’s prices were very reasonable and it was an absolute pleasure to get to know her in the lead up to the wedding.
Hilary Menzies: Adelaide did the flowers for the Commanderie de Bordeaux a Edimbourg at our Fete de la Fleur in June. Her flowers were stunning – they looked so natural, just as though they were growing there. Everything she used was sourced locally and the effect was spectacular. We will definitely use her again and would recommend her highly.
