Sarah was an absolute dream to deal with for our wedding. From the moment I discovered her at a wedding fare in Castlemartyre Hotel , I knew she was the lady for our wedding flowers. It's been 3 days since our wedding , and I still cannot stop admiring our flowers. They were everything I wanted AND more. I cannot thank Sarah enough for adding that special touch to our wedding. My bouquet was absolutely beautiful and has taken pride of place on my beloved Grandmothers grave . I will highly recommend Sarah . She is just so talented, and such a beautiful person. Everyone has been praising her work. Thank you Sarah x

We loved our flowers! I was planning a wedding in Ireland from the US and through some example photos and phone conversations, Sarah got my flowers perfect! Everything was beautiful and she was super helpful letting me mail some things to her for the wedding day. The ideas and her suggestions were spot on.

I LOVED creating your flowers, and getting to go wild in the woods with the ceremony flowers - thanks for letting me have the creative freedom!!

Sarah did our wedding flowers just over two weeks ago. It was important to us that the flowers were local and seasonal. The bouquet and arrangements that Sarah created were absolutely beautiful, and it was a pleasure to deal with Sarah. We had only one meeting in person, but afterwards she knew exactly what we wanted and came up with a lovely autumnal theme for us. She was very flexible, easy going and helpful. It was great that she looked after the delivery as well. I can highly recommend her work. Thanks very much for making our day extra special with your flowers, Sarah!

Sarah did our wedding flowers three weeks ago. I had met Sarah for a couple of consultations,I had a fairly good idea of what I wanted but found it hard to put it into words. She had great ideas and just has a wonderful eye for detail. I wanted traditional, simple and elegant and that’s exactly what I got. She made flower crowns for my flower girls and a beautiful head piece for me, they were all just Perfect and when I saw them on the morning my vision was a reality. Thanks a million Sarah x

I could not have asked for a better service than what Sarah provided us with for our wedding flowers - she was proactive in sourcing my favourite flower (out of season!), responsive, efficient and kind - and that’s before I take into account the stunning flowers she provided on the day! I couldn’t have imagined better, it was like she saw what I had been imagining and made it a reality, I’m still receiving compliments on them! I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Choosing flowers from the secret garden was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Sarah is so talented and our flowers on the day surpassed all my expectations, they were absolutely stunning! Sarah was so nice to deal with, really responsive to all emails (and I definitely sent ALOT!), nothing was too much hassle for her. Thank you so much Sarah, I will be recommending you to everyone I know that’s getting married!

We were absolutely delighted with our wedding flowers from Sarah at Flowers from the Secret Garden. As the father of the groom is an Irish botanist, we knew the flowers were something we needed to get right! Sarah really delivered with beautiful Irish-grown bouquets, buttonholes and arrangements. Sarah took on board our ideas in terms of the "look" we were going for and came up with brilliant and creative ways to make it happen. She also suggested ways of reusing arrangements from the ceremony at the reception so that we got the most out of our budget, which we really appreciated. Sarah and her team handled everything on the day (including moving arrangements from the church to the reception) and collection of everything the following day, which left us free to get on with enjoying ourselves. All in all, it was fantastic working with Sarah and we couldn't recommend her more highly.
Response from Flowers From The Secret Garden
Thank you for such a lovely review - I'm a tmy happiest working with Irish-grown flowers, and even more so when I know that they are important to the people receiving them. X

Sarah is the most talented and creative florist I have ever encountered!! Sarah did the flowers for a family wedding in December 2018, and was one of my first calls when I had my own wedding date set for 2019! I went to meet Sarah at her nursery in North Cork, to see all the flowers in bloom and see what was in season was amazing. I gave little guidance to Sarah, just the general bridal party colours and trusted her from there. From the bouquets to the button holes, the flowers were breathtaking. The flowers outside the church were really beautiful, I loved the summer colours!! Thank you so much for adding such a creative and special touch to our wedding day!!

We couldn’t have asked for a more breathtaking array at our wedding! Sarah made our dreams come true more than we could have imagined. She came highly recommended, so we reached out a few months before the wedding From our first interaction with her, she impressed us with her knowledge of flower availability (from her garden of course) around the time of our wedding and built bouquets around our wedding vibe and color scheme. Beyond the bouquets, table centerpieces, and boutonnières, she really impressed us with the little extra details. Flowing silk ribbon ties bouquets, a heart wreath on the door of the church, guest place settings accented with a sprig of lavender - not to mention the gorgeous brass candle stands and vases! Overall couldn’t think of anyone I’d rather work with on our wedding day

We chose Flowers from the secret garden for our wedding as I had seen Sarah’s work on Facebook and at local weddings. I have also attended her flower workshops. Her bouquets are always stunning. She understood and produced exactly what I wanted for our day. The flowers were fabulous and her professionalism is first class.

Sarah was amazing to deal with. From the first call, she understood exactly what I wanted even when I didn't know myself. Her proposal was perfect, just what I imagined. She was really flexible all the way through to organize everything, she even saved us on D-day when we forgot our church candles, she replaced them for us! The flower arrangement was incredible, tasteful and class. I can't thank you enough for everything, you made this day special for us!

Sarah, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. From the first day we met you, you were so warm and knew exactly what vision we had for our wedding. You can tell immediately you have a passion for what you do. You gave me so many different options and ways I could achieve the look I was going for, which worked within my budget. I can honestly say you made it such a pleasurable experience choosing the flowers and guiding us through the design that we had envisioned. We cannot thank you enough.

Sarah, where do I even begin. I believe it was faith that brought us together!! From our first meeting in your magical timber flower house drinking tea from china cups and chatting all things flowers I knew I had hit the jackpot with you. You took my visions of fabric colours and textures to another level. Your attention to detail and creativity are truly amazing. I love that like me you don't conform to trends. Your props...literally there are no words!! You are more then a florist you are a visionary artist. To all brides to be who are looking for stunning alternative bouquets of wild beautifulness, Sarah is your lady. Thank you so much Sarah. Honestly my flowers were the highlight of my day X

Sarah was very helpful to us in preparing for our wedding in which we were both based abroad during preparation stage, and had to do everything over email and phone call. Sarah was very responsive and provided great suggestions. Lastly, Sarah provided a lovely flower arrangement for the Cake, and liaised very effectively with our Cake provider to come up with the perfect flowers to match the cake theme. I’d definitely recommend Sarah again and will be in touch with her for our next big event in Ireland.

Sarah created the most incredible floral arrangements for our big day. When I saw them the morning of the wedding, I was truly blown away. Everyone said they were the most beautiful flowers they had ever seen (and they smelled just as wonderful). Sarah was a joy to deal with from the initial planning stages through to the big day itself. Having given her a rough idea of the style of our wedding, she worked her magic and created arrangements that perfectly suited our wedding. It is clear to see that Sarah loves what she does as it shines through in her work. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough.

Sarah was such a pleasure to deal with from Day One. Visiting her beautiful garden centre, we settled down over tea to discuss 'the vision'. Sarah is a natural and instantly got what we wanted. With a quick dash to the garden she returned laden with wildflowers and blue hydrangea - over a year before the wedding itself - to give us a sneak peak of what she had to offer. Bringing this mini-bouquet home, we knew we had nothing to worry about. Not only is Sarah a superb florist, she is an amazing wedding stylist who decorated both church and venue impeccably. From the bridal bouquet, flower-girl wands, to the buttonholes and filled urns, our 'Let Love Grow' theme really was complete. Thank you so much Sarah. We'll be forever grateful. Sarah & KD x

Sarah was absolutely a joy to deal with. She understood everything we liked, even if we didn't quite know ourselves! We went in with ideas but didn't know how to put it together. I liked wild flowers, herbs, colourful and seasonal looking flowers including sunflowers - Sarah made it work beautifully. We asked for some personal touches in remembrance candles, buttonholes and bouquets that meant a lot to us. She made our first consultation so easy. Sarah paid huge attention to detail and the flowers lasted well considering the unnatural heat on the day. Who knew you could show a couple's personality through flowers. Guests still comment on how bright and colourful our day was, especially our flowers. We cannot recommend Flowers from the Secret Garden enough. Sarah is easy to get on with, passionate about her work and cares about the couple! It was one thing I did not worry about on the day. Cannot thank you enough!!

Sarah is amazing,her attention to detail and eye for implementing a vision is superb. She is also realistic when it comes to your budget, which, when planning a wedding is so important as many suppliers often try to sell what you really don't need. You can be gaurteened Sarah does not do this. She is passionate about flowers and faboulous to deal with.

We got married in a heatwave so obviously I was extremely worried about how the flowers were going to fair out on the day. I really can not thank Sarah enough, she put her heart and soul in to ensuring that our flowers survived the day, and they did! We got so many compliments. Sarah is more than a talented florist, to me she was everything on the day in relation to decorating the venue and adding her own touches. Nothing was ever any trouble and the venue was fabulous. I think Sarah understood my vision more than I did myself. I would highly recommend Sarah for your big day... she is amazing at what she does!!!

Sarah was an excellent florist and decorator. We had a great brainstorming session earlier in the year and she took care of the rest. She gave us ideas of what she could do and we were able to veto what we didn't like. She also made it clear what she could do and what we should do also, she was very helpful. It was important to us that Sarah made a lot of the creative decisions as we wouldn't have much of an instinct for what would look good and she did just that. Not only were the flowers beautiful but Sarah also provided a beautifully decorated arch and decorated the dinner tables which we are indebted to her for. There was never an element of stress. Thank you Sarah for making our wedding beautiful! Lastly Sarah is by far the most reasonably priced florist along with growing many of her own flowers as opposed to importing flowers where possible, it's good to know the flowers didn't have to travel far and we were supporting local growers.
Response from Flowers From The Secret Garden
Thank you so much for these words David, it truly was fun working with you, as I relish I chance to be creative and play with ideas, especially with the themed tables (any excuse to go shopping for the weird & the wonderful is fine by me!). Wishing you both all the happiness in the future.

Sarah was a dream to have as a florist. I loved the fact that she grows her own flowers, as well as selecting from the flower markets, as being seasonal was an important element to me. She was very creative and very accommodating of all my changes!! She went out of her way to understand exactly what I was looking for and as such the results were perfect. I would very much recommend her for their wedding or any other celebration.
