Terms & Conditions

Payment for all orders must be made prior to delivery/collection.

Wedding Orders:

I can provide a free price estimate via email ([email protected]) on all wedding designs. This is useful if you are planning your wedding flower budget and require a rough idea of what things cost. There is also a current Wedding Price page on my website, to give you a starting point for costing designs.

If you then decide to book me for your wedding flowers, we will arrange a consultation, where we get together to discuss and plan your wedding flower requirements.

 A non-refundable deposit of 20% of the total amount is then required 3 months before the date and the final balance is to be paid 3 weeks before the wedding.

Payment can be made by cash, bank transfer (details on request) or cheque (cheques payable to Sarah James).

Cancellation Policy:

The deposit is non-refundable upon breach of contract. The deposit is deducted off the final balance.

The final balance is paid 3 weeks before the wedding date. Cancellation refunds after this date will be considered based on circumstances and will be less the deposit and any costs already incurred by the florist for the wedding.

The contract is between the Betrothed Couple and myself and cannot be changed or cancelled by a third party.

GDPR new policy update.

Sarah's Floral Studio will only hold the necessary information to process your floristry order, such as name, phone number, email address and postal address if required. I do not store any card or bank details.

All stored personal information is password protected with the necessary security software in place.

Once your order has been fulfilled all personal information is deleted.

Sarah's Floral Studio does not run any marketing campaigns and I will not pass your details on to any such organisations.

I will request permission first before I display photographs either online or in my portfolio/advertising information, giving my customers the opportunity to opt out.

Where the magic happens...

This is a snapshot of my workroom! It's not big and I don't have loads of storage but it's my haven. Thank goodness for Ikea and their brilliant storage ideas! I have french doors out onto my garden, the radio tuned into Radio 2 and the kettle on hand for the several cups of tea required throughout the day. This is where the magic happens!!
