"Just about to jet off on honeymoon but we really wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful flowers on Saturday. Everyone was commenting on them saying how much they loved them and asking where they were from, particularly my bouquet. I wasn't really sure what to expect but was absolutely over the moon, they were better than I could ever have imagined and I've recommended you to whoever I could find that is due to get married!"

"We wanted to thank you very much for the wedding flowers you did for our wedding on Friday 20th June 2014 at Orchardleigh House – we were thrilled with them.  Before I met you at the Celtic Manor Wedding Fayre, I had already spoke to a number of florists – none of whom I had confidence in.  I was very conscious that I needed to have someone I could trust and who would listen to what we wanted.  At our meeting, your knowledge and experience gave me full confidence in you and you seemed really lovely to work with.  You had a good understanding of the colours and flowers we wanted.  On our wedding day the flowers were exactly as I had imagined – I’m still not quite sure how you achieved this as I can be quite specific about what I want and don’t always communicate this well!  Everyone commented on how colourful the flowers were – exactly what we wanted for a summer wedding.  It was a pleasure working with you and getting to know you."

I just wanted to say a big thank  you for the most amazing floral decorations you created for my daughter Aimee's wedding on Saturday.  The bride and bridesmaids bouquets were truly stunning and the table decorations with their little lights were so beautiful.  I know Aimee and Ian were very pleased with the help and advice you gave them in choosing the flowers for their big day, and for the way they looked on Saturday. Once again many thanks.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our glorious flowers. They were all perfect and we had lots of people comment on how wonderful they were. We were pleased that the table displays tied everything together to complete the look and feel in the hall and our 10 guests who we gave the flowers to at the end of the evening were really pleased and touched. 
My flowers were glorious - frilly, girly yet elegant. The smell was delicious and I was asked (on several occasions) how we had managed to get such lovely sweet peas so early in the season. The bridesmaids also loved theirs and the simplicity created a WOW statement. 
We would also be pleased for you to share our thoughts with any potential customers as we would recommend you in a heart beat.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the flowers for our wedding on Saturday.
The flowers were amazing and everyone commented on them.  It was quite enjoyable watching some of the guests in the evening trying to work out where the light was coming from!  Hopefully I will never need flowers for a wedding again but I would definitely recommend you to others and would come to you again for flowers in the future.  It was the most enjoyable part of all the planning for me!

They really couldn't have been more perfect and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you - anyone who is getting married will be getting your details! The whole experience of the flowers for the wedding was really pleasurable, so thank you for everything you have done.

I would recommend anybody looking for a florist to do their wedding flowers to use Catherine Gray. I got married on 1 October 2011 and had a thistle-rose theme, I had very specific ideas on what I wanted and Catherine was able to recreate them to every detail. I had a very definite idea about the colour of the thistle I wanted to use, Catherine was great in reassuring me that she would be able to get the right colours to make my flower arrangements perfect and they were! 
Catherine also did our centrepieces for the tables which looked beautiful and again fitted into everything I asked. 
At all stages of choosing, ordering and receiving the flowers Catherine was friendly and helpful, she gave me loads of advice and offered a real personal service giving me confidence that everything I wanted would be carried out. Invaluable, as any bride to be would surely agree!
Thanks Catherine!

Catherine did the flowers for my wedding in Sept 2011. She did such an amazing job and I could see how much care she took to make them perfect!! Catherine provided a really personal and friendly service. She always followed up on things she said she would send me (unlike many other florists I came across!) and went that bit further to ensure everything was planned to perfection. She was happy to spend a lot of time planning and tweaking ideas, which was invaluable. Catherine was also excellent at giving ideas without forcing her opinions on me. Even more importantly she listened to what I had in mind and created flowers that really suited the whole theme of the wedding. I couldn't have been happier with the flowers, and all our guests commented on how lovely they were. I would strongly recommend using Catherine to do your flowers!

Catherine was our wedding florist in May 2011 and we were totally blown away by the amazing, beautiful flowers on the day. Absolutely what we wanted, and more! Together with the wonderful, personal and friendly service Catherine provides, we felt that our flowers represented fabulous value for money and practically every one of our 95 guests commented on how absolutely beautiful the flowers were. They made our venue look stunning. We also took them home after our wedding as we could not bear to leave any at the venue, and they lasted at home for nearly a fortnight! We cannot recommend Catherine highly enough!
