Rita, I still can't forget the excitement I felt when I first laid eyes on my bridal bouquet. We can't thank you enough for doing a wonderful job of arranging our flowers on our wedding day with the perfect dreamy look that we were aiming for, which even exceeded our expectations. You have totally set the mood of our dreamy wedding, starting the time that I received the bouquet from you at the cottage, until the very end during the reception at the Barn. And the flower ball, which everyone adored hanging on top of our bridal table. It was such a great opportunity to have your work as part of our wedding... you made the planning part so simple and easy which is a HUGE thing for a couple planning a wedding... and of course, you've done an excellent job in making the day much, much more special & beautiful, and totally worry free.

Thanks again Stacey, December 2011 Helen’s Hill

Janet

Hello Rita, We had a lovely celebration last Friday. Thought you might like to see how perfect your flowers looked on the day. I think you'll agree that all the girls looked stunning. Thank you for your lovely contribution. Many people commented on how unique the wedding flowers were. And I felt they were very much in keeping with the very natural environment of Sherbrooke Forest, which, with the fog decending, proved a most atmospheric and ethereal backdrop to the celebration.
Thank you very much, Janet Collins, October 2011


Kate

Hi Rita, The flowers for our wedding were absolutely beautiful, people are still commenting on how lovely they were. The service was fantastic with the delivery man arriving at 12.01pm!!! It was very impressive. The arrangements in the room were lovely, the hanging arrangements and tables looked colourful, bright and festive - just the look we were going for. Hope you're well.
Thank you very much for all your help... the day went just as planned and I'm glad it's all over!! :) Cheers, Kate and Ash, October 2011 Zonzos


Allison

Dear Rita, thank you for the incredible job you did on our wedding at Stones. The flowers took my breath away. They were beyond anything I dreamt of. It was a fantasy the whole place. I think my bouquet was the most beautiful I have ever seen or imagined, and we are desperately holding onto it to this day! Walking into the chapel all I could see was Ryan and the amazing flowers behind him. The volume, the variety and attention to detail with the orchids in the entrance was just perfect. Vonnie warned me I would be blown away when I walked into the barn and she was not wrong. You really captured and went beyond our request for a "lush garden and celebration of spring". I don't think a guest passed me without commenting on how impressive the flowers and the place looked.
Would recommend you loudly to every bride. Allison and Ryan October 2011, Stones of the Yarra Valley.


Fiona

Hi Rita, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for helping to make our wedding day so perfect.

Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thank you, Lauren. Stones of the Yarra Valley, April 2010


Jane

I just want to thank you for the beautiful flower bouquets you made for Jane’s wedding, they were magnificent. When I walked into the terraced area, where the large vase arrangement was placed I was bowled over. It is exactly the way we dreamed for the occasion and of course your talent came up with it. I have it at home now with the other gorgeous arrangement you made and it is a treat to look at. It was lovely to deal with you Rita and I will recommend you to everyone. I had so many people complementing your work at the wedding it’s a pity you don’t get to hear the praise. The bouquets were so lovely and looked great with the girl’s dresses.
Thank you again, Rita, Lea Summers, Cloudhill, April 2011

Some fabulous photos of your gorgeous flower arrangements you created for our wedding. I was absolutely wowed when I saw the reception. Everything was perfect and beautiful. You captured perfectly the vision I had for my wedding flowers and the look of my reception. I could not have been happier. The chapel isle decorations were the best I've ever seen. I just loved everything you did. And the wishing tree, just beautiful. Thanks so much.
I will be more than happy to recommend you in the future Michelle & Michael Culley, Zonzos, October 2010

I love my bouquet especially, and thanks for the extra to toss—it was a hot item! No wonder Jo recommended you.
Thanks again! Liz, The Espy, January 2010


Claire

Rita, thank you so much, you did an awesome job and the flowers were much commented and loved by everybody. Overall, the wedding was divine. It rained all day, but Marcus and I were so happy and everyone had so much fun that it was wonderful. Loved the reception flowers the most. Exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you so much for everything.
And when I leave vet to become a florist, you will be my mentor. Love Claire (and Marcus) Tocumwal, November 2010


Jenny

Just a quick thank you for the amazing arrangements you did for our wedding. So many guests let me know how beautiful all the flowers were and how elegant they looked. At the end of the night I gave all the flowers in the bowls to the elderly ladies that came. They thought they were exquisite and each one thought it was my posy. I didn't correct that one and let them think that. The church pew flowers were fabulous and our day was so complete. The rain stopped long enough in the day for me to get photos and we have great photos of all the flowers and arrangements.
Thankyou one again for all your great work. Kind regards Jenny, Stones of the Yarra Valley, December 2010


Patricia

Rita I wanted to say a very big thankyou. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and looked better than I could have hoped for. Everyone commented how stunning the roses were. I wanted to thank you for not only sitting down and making recommendations but also keeping it cost effective for us. I didn’t have to worry about a thing, all was delivered and arranged on time.
You were a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to having you brighten up a room for our next special occasion. Patricia, Zonzos, November 2010


Debbie

Hi Rita, I would like to thank you for my stunning bouquet, it is so beautiful I wish it would last forever, the colours were perfect. As we had never met and I hadn't seen any flowers I was a little concerned we could get it right just conversing by email but I needn't have it was amazing.

Graham and I just wanted to let you know how much we loved the flowers you arranged for our wedding. You hit the mark with the colour, selection (native) and style. Guests commented on the beautiful arrangements. I am currently trying to dry my bouquet, the buttonholes and some of the natives because I can't bear to part with them.
Thank you very much. Amanda and Graham, Ringwood, October 2010


Eliza

I have just returned from my honeymoon and realised I never let you know how much I LOVED the bouquet you made me. Thank you so much! It was perfect. Everyone commented on it on the day - it was much admired.
Thanks again for everything! Will definitely be passing your details along (especially to people having much bigger weddings than me!). Cheers, Eliza, September 2010


Niki

We just wanted to say again a HUGE thank-you for the truly spectacular flowers - from the bouquets, to the altar displays and arrangements in the barn, everything was exquisite and I was very touched by all the small details you had thought of in advance. The arrangements were exactly what I had envisioned. We received countless complements and many of our guests took some as a take-away bunch with them. Thank-you so much for being so accessible and accommodating the last minute changes that we made. The process was made so much easier knowing how talented you are and how everything was under control.
I won't be hesitating to recommend you to any friends who might need a florist in the future! Nikki, Albert and Jenny, Stones of the Yarra Valley, October 2010


Laura

Just wanted to express my biggest thanks for the wonderful flowers you did for my wedding. They were magnificent and thanks for throwing in the extra bouquet.
Thanks again, Laura, Stones of the Yarra Valley, September 2010


Vanessa

Hello Rita, I just wanted to drop a quick note to THANK YOU for your help with our flowers on 2nd May at the Stones. They were so absolutely gorgeous (everything, everything) and it was just what I had hoped for. You did a wonderful job and that's not just me thinking, almost everyone mentioned the flowers! You know our guests took home every single flower. We got back to Aust the other week and there is still talk about the flowers!
I just had to quickly drop a line to say thank you Rita. Vanessa Stones of the Yarra Valley May 2010


dijana

Dear Rita, What can I say? The flowers were so breathtaking I could hardly believe how divine that room looked. You made that place and our day so magical it was perfect thank you so much. You are a genius and Wellers thinks so too. All my other thank-yous can wait but I had to thank you now.
Will send photos and be in touch on our return. Dijana and John, Wellers Kangaroo Ground, June 2010

Will definitely recommend you to friends in the future! Steph, 3 Station Pier, Port Melbourne, May 2010


Zoe

Rita, Before we head off on our honeymoon, Scott and I want to thank you for the gorgeous flowers. We had so many positive comments about the bridal bouquets and the flowers in the marquee. It was all perfect! We gave away all of the flowers on the night to our guests, who were delighted. Thanks for making it such a hassle-free part of the wedding.
I really hope we have an opportunity to recommend Blooming Brides to our friends for their weddings! Very best wishes, Scott & Zoe, Botanical Gardens Melbourne March 2010


Rachel

Dear Rita, Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers you made up for our wedding day. You turned my vague description of a "big, white, fluffy ball" into a perfect reality and they could not have looked more beautiful. I got so many comments on how gorgeous the bouquets looked (and smelt!), and our wedding day was made even more special by your contribution. Once again, many thanks.

Angela

Dear Rita, I cannot describe how amazed, stunned and so so so so happy with the flowers. They were completely PERFECT. There were no words to say how beautiful the chapel looked and then the reception. All I have received for weeks on ends is compliments on the flowers and how stunning they were and well presented. People were so impressed with the variety of the flowers and thought the vases were amazing!! I was so happy it looked incredible and even David who isn't much of a flower person thought you did a beautiful job. Thank you for all of your patience, knowledge and happiness to help me Rita,
Angela and David, Stones of the Yarra Valley Jan 2010.

rachel

Rita, Your flowers were splendid & beautiful - elegant, sweetness, magic! You made my dreams come true. They were just simply amazing!!! I love them!! I just cannot take my eyes off them! Our celebrant, my female friends, guests in Melbourne & Malaysia, everyone told me how pretty and detailed your creations were. It makes me feel like getting married again and again (it will have to be with the same man) Hehe.


Dewinta

Thankyou so much for your help, eye for detail, your patience. You're definitely gifted! Will definitely think of you when we have our baby christening!! :D Thanks so much Rita, Dewinta and Leslie, The Gables, Melbourne November 2009


Lauren

Rita, Mark and I would like to thank you for your wonderful work on our wedding flowers. We didn't really have much of an idea when it came to our flowers but your guidance and suggestions were spot on. I really appreciate you getting the gorgeous gold David Austin roses - they set the flowers off. The colours were perfect to complement the vivid purple of the bridesmaids' dresses. I could not have been happier!
Lauren and Mark, Melbourne May 2009

Rita, Thank you so much again for our wedding flowers. They were just so bright and colourful and artistic, they exceeded my expectations! Even John (who I would never expect to notice flowers) was very impressed and said they just made the marquee look perfect. We know you put in a lot of extra effort behind the scenes and we truly appreciate Best wishes Tess and John xx

kylie

Dear Rita - WOW and big thanks for all your efforts and expertise. The flowers were amazing. I absolutely loved my bouquet - exactly what I wanted! Flower girl and bridesmaid bouquets were so beautiful and the tables were divine. Managed to share them with loads of guests which was fab and my mother has the biggest display - the entrance flowers all around her house! Lovely to work with you and to meet up after all these years. Good luck with everything!
Kylie and Stephen, Stones of the Yarra Valley, October 2009


skye

Dear Rita, What can I say, the flowers were SO stunning. Thankyou SO MUCH. I think every single guest commented on the magnolias, and I’m still getting comments. They looked so beautiful. They were the second thing I saw when I walked through the chapel doors (only after Ben). You must be so pleased with your work. I am so happy they turned out so well. And the freesias were just gorgeous with the tea lights coming through them. And the tulips too! And the cake, and bouquets! Gosh, you covered everything. I had a magical wedding. Your flowers really made a beautiful contribution to that. Thankyou so much.
Skye & Ben, Stones of the Yarra Valley, September 2009


donna

Dear Rita, You were right, the flowers were PERFECT, every last one of them. I couldn't stop looking at them all night and the comments just kept coming. We appreciate your attention to detail, patience, care and expertise immensely. We couldn't have wished for anything more. Many thanks,
Donna and Terry, Chateau Yering, October 2009


gordana

I can’t tell you how thrilled I was with the flowers. They were just perfect. The ceremony flowers were just spectacular, and perfectly positioned (thanks I know this was a bit of a hassle!) and made such a beautiful ceremony even more special. Every single stem seemed to be perfect and your attention to detail was certainly evident in all the arrangements….the wrist corsage (my mum loved it) and all the very special buttonholes. Thankyou thankyou thankyou for all your help…I’ll be recommending you to everyone I know and can’t wait till the next time I can use your service!!!

Kathryn

Rita, I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for all your hard work and dedication to creating my vision for the wedding - the flowers were simply stunning, and I had so much positive feedback from my guests on the day. I couldn't have been happier, the flowers were above my expectations. I only just threw out the chapel urn flowers, they were long dead but I just couldn't bring myself to throw them out, they were spectacular! Once again, thanks so much, I was very grateful for your patience and attention to detail.
Kathryn & Brad, Stones of the Yarra Valley, April 2009

Hi Rita, I'd just like to say a big thank you or all of your help and the beautiful flowers you arranged for our wedding. They were stunning and exactly what we wanted! The hair pieces were lovely in my hair and all the extra details you did were perfect.
Thanks again, we will recommend you to our friends.

shima

Rita I just wanted to say the flowers were beautiful and attracted a lot of compliments! I loved the changes you made to the two bridesmaids – they really suited each one. And the flower girls’ posies were lovely. We put the flowers in my daughter’s hair like a band and they looked charming. We had a great day, and I still say to Simon that one of the things I particularly enjoyed about the whole affair was your work. Thanks so much for your beautiful work, Rita. I am so glad I found you!
Shima, Melbourne September 2009


amelia

Having previously attended a few Blooming Brides-styled weddings, we knew that Rita was exceptionally talented and creative….but we were still blown away with the stunning design she created for our wedding day. Rita created ambience, vibrancy, warmth and fun – combined with elegance and simplicity. Rita, thankyou - you’re a superstar and an absolute delight to work with.

megan

Hi Rita, Matt and I wanted to write to you to extend our thanks for helping to make our wedding day (22/8/2009) so special. I know Mum has already written to you, but I also wanted to tell you how grateful I was for all your help considering our wedding was organised from a distance. You are a very talented florist and not only were our bouquets and corsages stunning but you set the mood at the reception with your elegant table arrangements. We received so many lovely comments about our flowers and they tied our colour scheme together perfectly. I have already recommended you to a few friends as I have only glowing praise for you and your skills.
Many thanks
Megan & Matthew, Butleigh Wooten, Melbourne August 2009
