When it’s time to say Goodbye, we believe it’s really important that the funeral flowers you choose help you express your emotions and reflect your loved one.

This could be a tribute depicting or containing the hat they always wore, the football team they supported, colours to reflect their personality, their favourite flowers, the thing that made them unique…

We think it’s particularly nice if the tribute can ‘live on’ after the funeral and continue to provide comfort and remembrance for the family. Plants, bulbs or seeds have all been used recently as a way to do this. Larger floral tributes can also be re-arranged afterwards into smaller posies of flowers that can then be taken away by family and friends.

Biodegradable, eco-friendly tributes can also be designed.

We are happy to spend time with you discussing your requirements and can do this in the comfort of your own home if you require. Don’t worry if you get upset whilst chatting, it’s completely natural and we will give you the time you need.After deciding on details a no obligation quote will be provided.

Frequently Asked Questions

Funeral Flower Etiquette

Very often just family flowers are requested at funerals now with donations to charity being requested in lieu of other flowers. The closest family flowers usually go on top of the coffin, be it one design or several if space allows. Conveying your emotion through flowers can help with the grieving process and flowers can also be seen as a last gift to the deceased. They provide a focus during the funeral. If there is a request for family flowers only but you feel you want to take flowers, then do, but perhaps consider taking a single flower or a small bunch to pay your respects.

What happens when I place an order for funeral flowers?

We will liaise with yourselves and the funeral directors over where you would like the flowers delivered on the morning of the funeral. If it is a very early funeral we will deliver the afternoon before. Sometimes flowers are delivered to the family home and loaded into the hearse there. Or they can be taken to the Funeral directors so that they are in the hearse already.

What should I write on the card message?

This is really dependant on your personal beliefs and feelings. You can either write about the deceased or to the deceased. Cards will often be read by others attending the funeral so it is nice to put who they are from. Putting a card on your flowers is not obligatory but if you do want to we’ll always give you extras, as we know it’s so easy to make a mistake or change your mind with words.

Funeral flowers & Sympathy Flowers?

Sympathy flowers are sent as a gift to the family who have lost a loved one. They are designed to be displayed in the home, and not usually sent on the day of the funeral.

Funeral flowers are designed to go to the funeral and travel in the hearse. For this reason they need to be designed to travel securely and some designs (e.g a bouquet in water or a vase) are not suitable. We are happy to help you choose an appropriate design.

Outstanding – absolutely beautiful

Alison designed and made the wedding bouquets for my son’s wedding. They were outstanding – absolutely beautiful and the attention to detail was incredible. I bought the flowers from her for the Church and reception which I arranged. The quality of flowers was perfect and nothing was too much trouble for Alison.

I was blown away at my bouquet

Alison is amazing at her trade and knows flowers to a tee, from our first meeting until the big day Alison was always at hand to answer any questions or queries. I was blown away at my bouquet is was so so stunning and so much more than I had thought it would be. I am even having it preserved for years to come as a full bouquet in a glass frame as it is too beautiful to let it die. Thank you so much.

Careful attention to what we really wanted

I was so delighted with my wedding flowers that I couldn’t resist to be parted with them and have instead had them preserved! Alison also decorated our tables, engraving pumpkins for us, and carving gourds to make tea light holders. There were too many little touches & ideas to describe every single one but it looked incredible. My main reason for recommending The Flower Studio so highly is owing to Alison careful attention to what we really wanted. My flowers weren’t only beautiful, they also set the autumnal theme for the entire day perfectly. Unlike some of the other suppliers we used I never felt like a conveyor belt bride. Alison was hugely patient with my changing ideas and spent lots of time with me establishing exactly what sort of “look” I wanted the flowers to have. She came up with so many amazing & imaginative suggestions, guided me when she thought my ideas might not work and made the whole process far easier than I expected it to be. I couldn’t recommend The Flower Studio more highly.
