We are happy to provide the ceremony décor and transfer items from here to the reception to save on cost. This however can only be done in the instance that the ceremony and reception are being held at the same venue. If your ceremony will take place at a separate location from your reception, we cannot provide décor for both, on the same day.
1.7 Venue fees:
If your venue charges vendors and suppliers a fee, please note that we will pass on these charges to you as the client directly.
2.1 Availability & Variations:
We endeavour to meet requests for fresh flowers however we are subject to the natural seasons in which particular types may be available. This may have an impact on price and/or availability. Our design team will recommend alternatives in keeping with your colour scheme in such circumstances. When working with nature, there are no guarantees. We will do our absolute best to supply exactly what you order, however due to variances in the weather & seasonal availability of some flowers, we cannot guarantee availability, exact colours or shades. Should we need to substitute any flowers for you, we will select what we feel is the next best option.
2.2 Flower conditions:
Fresh flowers are prone to wilt prematurely in hot weather; every effort will be made to maintain the quality of the flowers but this cannot be guaranteed for the duration of your event.
3. SET UP
3.1 Required setting up time:
The number of hours set up requires depends entirely on the nature of the décor and the number of guests. The exact time required will be confirmed during the final consultation. If the time constraints given for setting up are extremely limited, depending on your décor requirements, additional staff may need to be brought in to ensure a timely turnaround. This will incur an additional charge.
3.2 Set up conditions:
Where an installation and set up service has been requested, it is the clients responsibility to ensure that the venue is ready at the times stated. Failure to comply can result in further charges or abandonment.
3.3 Point of contact:
It is expected that the client will provide details (name and telephone number) for a point of contact for the duration of the set up/clear up. This is in the event of difficulties with access at the venue or set up on the day. You will need to ensure the nominated individual is available and so ideally should not be a part of the bridal party.
All arrangements for linen must be made separately unless this is otherwise agreed as part of your Event Styling Service. On the day of setup, we will require that all linen is ready on the tables we have agreed to dress if we are not supplying the linen.

We will not take responsibility for the setup of favours and stationery that we have not provided unless otherwise agreed.
3.7 Guest interference during set up:
Guests are to be instructed not to enter any rooms being decorated before the agreed time. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure there is a representative at the venue to communicate this to guests and usher them to an appropriate location. In the event of our staff having to manage your guests, it is at the client’s risk that either there is a delay in the venue being ready or a deduction being applied to the holding deposit for the additional tasks.
3.8 Stacking and un-stacking of chairs & tables:
It will be necessary for the venue providers to un-stack or put out chairs or tables. If there is an issue on the day and we do need to do this, there is an additional charge for this and the charge will be removed from the security deposit. There may be a delay in time as a result of this. Please note that this does not apply to chairs that we provide. We will take full responsibility for the stacking and un-stacking of the chairs we provide.

We cannot accept responsibility for any of our items that are used outside should they be damaged, soiled or affected by weather conditions after we have left them e.g. aisle runners becoming extremely wet or soiled.

3.10 Punctuality and timing:
We allow 30 minutes on either side of any given time, to allow for good/bad traffic and any delays we may come across.
