Thank you so much Ellie for producing the most amazing flowers for my wedding at Deer Park in November 2017. Thank you for all the time spent discussing options and ideas with me and completely putting me at ease throughout the whole process. You went above and beyond! Everyone agreed that the room looked absolutely stunning. I couldn’t have imaged it would look as amazing as it did, thank you so much!! lots of love xx
Abi & Tom
Thanks Ellie for a wonderful time at your wreath making workshop, we all had a fabulous time and are so pleased with our wreaths. Can’t wait to hang them on the door! Great atmosphere, great teaching, feeling very festive now xxx
Ellie was amazing in interpreting exactly what I wanted with only 6 weeks to sort the full wedding out. I had a hand bouquet and 3 bridesmaids bouquets, with 5 button holes, in which she delivered in plenty of time for the wedding. Her personality and professionalism within her flower arrangements was fabulous. I would definitely recommend her, her being recommended to me as being a more modern florist. The flowers were perfect and lasted ages after the wedding day.
I recently ordered a tied bouquet for a friend for Christmas and at the same time treated myself to a festive floral arrangement. I knew Ellie would do a great job having attended a couple of her themed classes (Easter arrangements & Christmas wreath making – both great fun and very rewarding to learn some simple techniques and come away with your own creation) I was however completely blown away by both the items I collected on a day and time of my choice. The tied xmas bouquet was a vibrant mix of Christmas Reds and gorgeous foliage. My own arrangement was a complete contrast in subtle whites, silver blues and deep green foliage and Ellie was more than happy to make the arrangement in one of my own baskets to complement my decor. It’s been 10 days now and with just a quick refresh of the roses and a few new sprigs of foliage and despite a very warm house it’s still going strong.
Ellie is a lovely lady who runs a fabulous local florist business with a very personalised service, super choice of flowers and at great value. I will in future be choosing Darling Buds of Ellie for all my floral needs. Thank you Ellie.
Super friendly florist who listens to the customer and happy to give advice. Ellie did our wedding flowers and advised on what would be in season and would work best for what we wanted. Since then I have had flowers and wreaths from her. Top quality every time! Highly recommend.
“Thank you so much Ellie for doing a fantastic job providing us with all of our wedding flowers. The bouquets were amazing exactly what we wanted and the flowers at the venue were perfect. You couldn’t have done a better job, would recommend to anyone. We were so happy we chose you for our big day. Love Vicky and Dan xx”

Ellie, we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so special with the most beautiful buttonholes and corsages. Not only did they harmonise exactly with what we had chosen guided by your professional eye, but they were of the most exquisite quality and by far the best value we had seen anywhere. As you can see by the photos attached, out day was both special and incredibly joyful. Your floral contribution helped to make it happen and we are enormously grateful to you. With Love and renewed thanks from us both.

“Ellie firstly listened to our ideas and then gave many suggestions based on our thoughts of colours, textures and overall look. She was patient and inspiring and never seemed to mind when we changed our minds… a lot!! We really enjoyed the process of finding what flowers fitted our vision for our special day. She transformed our vision into something that exceeded our expectations. Our wedding flowers were such a special part of our day and we celebrated with family and friends surrounded by a wonderful burst of colour and so importantly they were perfectly ‘Us’ exactly what we hoped for and more. They of course feature very highly in our wedding photos!! From beginning to end Ellie ensured that we never once became anxious or worried about this part of a long list of things to arrange. We really enjoyed it!! Thank you so much. We have already recommended you to lots of people and think your amazing. Good luck with everything.”
Vix & Ben Powell
“The flowers Ellie made for our wedding were completely perfect. We told her which flowers we wanted and showed her some mood boards and it was as easy as that. Ellie took what we gave her and created something wonderful for us. We’re so glad we went with her and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. We also asked her to prepare some flowers for our daughter’s christening earlier this year and of course she did a fab job. Thank you again Ellie!!”
Gerard & Charlotte Aspinall

Darling buds were absolutely perfect in all the ways a bride could wish for! On first meeting Ellie she became more of a friend and she had a way of understanding exactly what I wanted and making me feel really special. Ellie always went the extra mile to make sure I was happy and that the flowers would be perfect. Ellie is super talented and the flowers on the day were exceptional and commented on by all my guests. Thank you Darling Buds!
Ellie from darling buds, was fantastic from day one. She was happy to talk through ideas and give advice. She was more than happy to make some flower hairpieces for my hair trial. She was always friendly approachable and quick to respond to any queries. Her instragram page helped me to invisage my flowers and gave me inspiration in asking ellie to do the flowers for my cake. I had no doubt that ellie would do an amazing job with my flowers. My bouquet still looked great a week later.
Professional, friendly, easy to deal with and delivered exactly what we were after. We had a clear vision for what we wanted but we’re given advice and guidance on what would work, be in session and really make the place look great.
From start to finish Ellie was easy to work with and friendly she listened to my ideas and brought those ideas to life. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and the exact colour matches I was looking for. They looked so healthy and lasted for more than a week after the wedding. The presentation of the flowers were amazing and looked better than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend Darling Buds to anyone for any occasion.
Ellie did an absolutely fantastic job with our flowers. They were spot on- beautiful arrangements and made with such care. Ellie made sure that everything from the buttonholes to the bridal bouquet complemented our colour scheme. Ellie took time to listen to all my ideas and took them all on board when creating the arrangements. On the wedding day she went above and beyond and travelled to 3 separate locations. The experience was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more.
If I could leave an ’11’ for the quality of our flowers on or wedding day then I would. They were absolutely outstanding from the button holes, bouquets, chair ends, all the way to the bigger stuff; milk churns, hanging hoops. We didn’t go crazy on the amount but every where you looked and also in every photo you can spot Ellie’s extremely talented work. I would highly recommend Ellie to anyone getting married.
I could not fault Darling buds. The flowers Ellie provided for our wedding day were exactly what we asked for. She communicated to us with Pinterest meaning we could easily combine ideas and suggestions. We were amazed seing the flowers on our wedding day, we would recommend to anyone. Very reasonable prices also. Thanks so much Ellie for helping to make our day perfect.
Rating 1 to 10 does not reflect the outstanding personal service we received that went beyond what we were expecting. The final design was so beautiful and certainly helped to make our day so special.
An amazing experience and incredible flowers, Ellie is helpful, knowledgable & great at communicating throughout. The flowers were perfect and exactly how I had imagined them to be.
We chose wildflowers for our wedding and they were so beautiful in the day we couldn’t have been happier. Ellie is highly skilled and also so friendly and approachable we were lucky to find her!
Darling Buds have a brilliant website as well as great Instagram and Facebook pages which enabled us to see lots of their previous work and see the beautiful work that they do.
I was recommended DARLING BUDS through a contact in the area, as soon as I met Ellie there was no doubt that she was the florist for me. Darling Buds was the perfect mix of quality, exceptional service and value for money.
When I first met El I knew I could trust & rely on El to do an amazing job for us.
We had been recommended darling buds by a friend. When I emailed Ellie to enquire she was extremely prompt with her replies and very accommodating. She also offered a very reasonable price. Her website was very accessible and after seeing her online portfolio I knew we had made the right choice.
From meeting Ellie at a Christmas stall I knew straight away just from the items she was selling that she had great taste and booked her there and then. Communication was spot on on the lead up to the wedding. With great ideas and input I felt so confident and comfortable leaving the flower department in her more than capable hands.
Based on my conversation with her, I knew she understood exactly what I was looking for. With a fairly new business, she had the enenergy and enthusiasm I loved.
I clicked with Ellie from the first meeting and I felt trust and confidence in her knowledge.
The interest in every little detail of flowers required, research to find exact colour and type , always in contact to give latest information. Always a warm friendly greeting with desire to make our day really special the way we wanted.
