Dearest Darlene & Brooke,
Jamie and I wanted to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for the styling of both our wedding ceremony and reception venues. No words can express enough the joy we felt when we made our entrance to The Tea Room. When I walked away from our first meeting I told mum that I knew you would be my florist. You understood my vision, finished my sentences and made me feel as though my dream was achievable. I always found you and Brooke so easy to talk to and I love that you would tell me your honest opinion, and I really respect you both and think you are lovely people. Your attention to detail and expertise is evident in everything you do. Given the short time frame you had to work with on the day, you managed to deliver my bouquets, style our ceremony and return to The Tea Room to style our reception. That is efficiency at it’s very best! The Tea Room’s coordinator Natalie Hughes commented on how composed you were during the setup. Nothing stressed you out and you were in total control. I believe your professionalism and impeccable organisation in the days leading up attributed to this.
Our guests were absolutely blown away by what they saw when they walked in. Many commented that they had never seen anything like it in their lives. There was all the vibrancy yet warmth I was looking for and when the lights were dimmed the glow from the candles in combination with the pink LED uplighting, consistent mix of glass and silver goblets totally changed the dynamics of the room. We think Peonies are passionate about their work, they are innovative and can offer alternatives to keep within a budget.
I told Darlene from the beginning that the styling/theme of our ceremony and reception was one of the most important aspects to me. Knowing that Darlene and her team were responsible for this, meant we could just sat back and relax while they worked their magic. We didn’t have to worry about a thing! You made our day absolutely wonderful and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.
Love Jamie & Jayne McCabe xoxo
