"I feel Ive made a friend in Carolyn, after meeting for a coffee to discuss our colour palette, she was so genuinely excited for Eoin and I which made the build up to the day just so special. Carolyn provided an incredible service from start to finish, even sourcing some figs to decorate the cake with (which her mum was even going to attempt to bring back from holiday and dry for us if they weren’t in season at the time of the wedding)! The bouquet, unity arrangement and reception arrangements were simply stunning and suited our vision perfectly. We wanted a minimalistic, classic vibe with pops of autumnal colours and Carolyn’s signature whimsical arrangement, with lots of movement in the bouquet. Carolyn delivered over and above our expectations. Flowers were our only decoration at the wedding and I had absolutely no doubt that Carolyn would deliver such a dreamy setup for us.  We had some of our flowers delivered to Eoin’s grandparents care home after the wedding, which brought them so much joy.  Thank you SO much, Carolyn."

Nothing could’ve prepared myself and Joe, for what Carolyn created for us. We mentioned to her, that we wanted a ‘Frosty Halloween’ theme for our wedding, and she created that and so much more for us. She grew flowers and pumpkins in her garden. She spray painted leaves and pumpkins, and flew Roses in from Holland. She made a memorial chain of my Dad for my bouquet. She scooped out massive pumpkins and arranged flowers inside them, and they weighed a tonne! She asked what peoples favourite flowers were, and incorporated them into buttonholes and bridesmaids bouquets. She even transported all the flowers from the church and set them up at the second venue. Carolyn went above and beyond our expectations and we just couldn’t be happier. She is exceptionally talented at what she does and is incredibly thoughtful. She also surprised us with floral confetti ! We met her on two occasions and she was very professional and wanted to get out ideas exactly right. Our guests have not stopped raving about the flowers. We were absolutely blown away by Carolyn. It was so stunning and I will always remember walking up that beautiful frosty Halloween aisle to My Joe. Thank you so so much.

"Carolyn prepared my beautiful bouquet for my wedding on the 24th of June. Carolyn asked what my favourite colour was (it’s purple!) and we took it from there! From our very first contact I knew I had made the right decision. I visited her garden where I could tell her which flowers I loved, and she advised what would be seasonal for the day. She enquired on my likes and dislikes and tailored the bouquet to my every request. The flowers were grown around the corner from our home, which made it even more special. My dress was quite plain and the colour pop from the bouquet elevated my look past what I could have imagined. My sister was also delighted with her bouquet and put them in a vase after the day. I received too many complements on the bouquets to count!
The flowers were hand delivered by Carolyn herself on the day, which kept them so fresh the bees were equally delighted to see them. When my veil was clipped back to front by the hairdresser on the morning of my wedding, Carolyn and her nimble fingers saved the day on that one too and she seamlessly corrected this in an instant. Carolyn delivers excellence from the personal flower requests down to the colours and material of the ribbon matching my shoes. She is a professional and passionate about what she does which shines in her work. I cannot recommend Carolyn highly enough, thank you so very much.

"I was totally blessed to get Carolyns name when my son wife to be booked their wedding at Durhamstown castle. Then started a magical journey of exploring flowers, grown with love. It was a delight to deal with Carolyn who was so full of warmth and creativity. I felt, as months progressed we had this super ace card and I knew people would be enchanted when the day arrived. Carolyns professionalism and direct approach gave me confidence, that all would come into fruition. And it did  in spades!
 The Bouquets were raved about , All the flowers were admired as individuals "Are they really real ?"  
Those dahlias really know how to make an impression .Overhanging flowers , flowers in milk urns flowers peeping from surprising places all charmed.  The ultimate  centre piece of course the happy couple lighting their unity candle was framed against a divine ceremonial ring  a vision to cherish forever.  The memory of the wedding for us all and most importantly of the bride and groom  is framed by flowers ..  such a great way to remember the most special of days Thanks Carolyn ... you and your amazing creativity brought it all on to Durhamstown. We are Forever grateful to you.

"Carolyn was my florist for my wedding in August and her work was absolutely stunning. I honestly couldn't have been happier. To know that they were grown with such care and arranged with such love was the most special thing. I spoke with Carolyn numerous times before the wedding, she was dedicated to getting it exactly right, making sure I was happy at every step. The results were beyond my expectations. Not only is Carolyn professional and extremely talented but she is always a pleasure to deal with. My bouquet included some very sentimental flowers and keepsakes which made me feel as though the ones I loved who have passed away were right there with me. If you are getting married soon and searching for a florist, do yourself a favour and contact Carolyn ❤️"

“From the moment we got in touch with Carolyn regarding flowers for our wedding day, we knew we had made the right decision. Her enthusiasm and passion was evident from the get-go, and was infectious! We felt very involved in the process of choosing our flowers but were given expert advice where needed. Carolyn designed a beautiful mood board to show us her ideas for our big day. She was very understanding and accommodating when things were looking a bit shaky with Covid... 
On the day our flowers were absolutely incredible and all of our guests commented on them. Carolyn set everything up perfectly that morning. We had beautiful centrepieces, a ceremony ring, and Carolyn made a floral headpiece for my hair.. the headpiece was absolutely beautiful, lightweight, and so comfortable to wear. It remained perfectly in place until the wee hours of the morning. I could not recommend Carolyn highly enough."
