I just wanted to say how beautiful the flowers for Sarah's wedding were on Saturday. I have 1 of the large arrangements and the groom's mother has the other. As we did the table arrangements together, and she has never arranged flowers before, we were amazed that they linked up so well. I do hope you didn't feel we let your good name down. We used what we found in my (large) garden as we thought it would suit Gildings, but couldn't believe you would provide the similar flowers. We were so lucky with the weather and had a wonderful day. Sarah and Alex are now on honeymoon. Thank you for your perfect contribution to our memorable family occasion. Jane

Flowers by Elaine recently provided flowers for our wedding, we were blown away by the beauty of them and how accurately they had understood what we wanted and brought our vision to life. we were especially pleased they were able to include my wife's favourite flower Love-in-a-Mist. When my wife saw the flowers on the day she cried with happiness! Thank you for your incredible service

All the pink and cream flowers were so pretty and very much what our mother would have chosen herself!

With many thanks

Hi Sandra

I would like to thank you and all at Elaine’s from myself and my Brother for the wonderful flowers you made for our Dad’s funeral (March 19th ’24).

The bike was amazing, exactly what we envisaged and drew plenty of admiring comments, Dad would have loved it! The casket flowers and the posy were beautiful. The colours, simply amazing and bought much joy to a sad occasion. We are so very grateful for the way you dealt with us, understood our requirements, and produced a simply beautiful array of flowers.

Thank you again, so very much.

Ivan & Rupert

Dear Sandra and team,

With our thanks for the amazing flowers you prepared for Mum's casket, the font (beautiful!) and Roberts as well. They were absolutely perfect and reflected Mum's love of flowers and especially the daffodils and narcissi she so loved. Thanks again, Rosemary and Donald Wakeford.

Hi Sandra,

I just wanted to write and say a BIG thank you to you and your staff for the floral tributes for my Dad's funeral last Friday (15th March 24)
They were perfect. Dad would have especially loved the cricket bat and ball as he was such a massive cricket fan.
We would not hesitate to use you again in the future.

Kindest Regards



Hi, I just wanted to send a big thank you to Sandra for the perfect flowers for my mums funeral, they were perfect and I know my mum would have loved them. Everyone admired the main spring woodland display and the jars were a lovely gift to be able to give to some close friends and family members after the wake.

Thank you very much.

Hi there,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself, my brother and father for the wonderful flowers you provided for my mother Wendy’s funeral yesterday.

They were perfect selections of flower and colour and provided a beautiful back drop to the funeral in North Holmwood. We then transferred the flowers to the reception at Wotton House Hotel and they worked perfectly there. We have selected the best blooms for bringing back to the house as a lovely memory of our dear mother.

Thank you again for your services.

Best regards
Sarah Speller

Dear Sandra and Team
Firstly, can I say a huge thank you to you and your team for preparing mum’s wreath for her funeral yesterday, Thursday 4 January 2024.
I know you knew mum for many years as a customer, and we could tell straight away that they were prepared with “love”.
Funeral flowers always look like what they say, but this floral arrangement was different; celebratory and uplifting.  It lit up the hearse on what was a very wet and dark afternoon.  Mum was born in Scotland and we were so pleased you were able to source some “thistles”, but also incorporated her final wishes of white roses and gypsophila which were in her wedding bouquet.  I know mum would have been thrilled with the arrangement.
So once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With kind regards

Thank you so much for the wonderful flowers that you did for Matthew. Homer was just amazing. Everybody commented as to how brilliant it was. I can't thank you enough. Love from Sylvia and family.xx

Dear Flowers by Elaine, Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers you did for our wedding day. They were absolutely wonderful and exactly what we wanted. Thank you also for the lovely card you gave us - a lovely surprise!

Lots of love Claire and James xxx

Just a quick note to say thank-you for the beautiful flowers for my Mum's, Sandra Gladys Thomas, funeral on 10th October.

The Sunflower Mix Casket Spray looked absolutely spectacular and was a lovely tribute to her.

Thanks once again,

Marc Thomas

Flowers by Elaine are fabulous.

They supplied the florals for our wedding day and did so to perfection.

From the very first meeting, to the wedding day they were amazing. So professional and gave so much support and ideas when I wasn’t sure what to go for.

On the day our flowers were stunning and everything we hoped they would be.

I can’t thank the team enough and I love my flowers so much we are having them preserved so we can continue to enjoy them forever!

Thank you

Dear Sandra, Elaine & all the lovely ladies who helped to do the flowers at my daughter, Ella’s wedding on Friday.

I cannot tell you how much we appreciate you. The floral bouquets were exactly what Ella was hoping for, the table florals & ceremony plinths were stunning. We had so many people say how gorgeous the flowers were on the day, they really were.

You were all so wonderful to work with, thank you very much.

Sending love & hugs

Hi Gemma, Elaine & Sandra

We are just back from honeymoon and wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for the exceptional flowers you did for our wedding. The ceremony room looked absolutely magical and the bouquets and centre pieces were just stunning. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the flowers were and you really captured the colour scheme and modern vibe that we were going for. Also a particular thank you to Gemma - you were incredibly helpful and responsive from the first meeting we had with you and throughout the process. We were very grateful for all your help throughout.

Please let us know if you would like a more formal review and we will happily provide one.

Thank you again for helping make our day so very special :)

Dear Flowers by Elaine,

Thank you for the absolutely stunning floral displays for our Mother’s funeral and Service of Thanksgiving- they were superb.

Mum would have loved your choice of blooms, the enormous lilies and the way you incorporated orange Birds of Paradise into the creations, without it looking odd! What skill you have!

We are very grateful to you for the excellent customer service, delivery to the church and passing the bill on to Sherlocks so that we had several less things to worry about organising.

We are very grateful.

Dear Sandra,

This is a huge and heartfelt thank you for the beautiful floral displays you created for Emily and Chris's wedding; they were exactly what they had wanted. I believe you were able to achieve this from your years of experience, which shone through in all our meetings. Please pass our thanks to Gemma, and the rest of the Elaine's team, for everything you did to give them what they describe as the best day of their lives. Your support throughout was invaluable. With the warmest of wishes, Rosie Francis.'

Dear “Flowers by Elaine”

You supplied the flowers for my mother’s funeral (Jan 19th with Sherlocks as the Undertaker) Sorry I’ve been slow in contacting you, but I just wanted to say how lovely the flowers looked (large casket sheath in white and yellow from all the family). Several people commented on them. Just looking at them was an uplifting experience on a sad occasion.

And I would also like to say thank you for the monthly vase of flowers you sent to mum at Deepdene care centre for the last few years. For a lot of the time I was unable to visit but they brightened up her room. And I believe when she was sitting in the lounge she had them placed in there so she could carry on enjoying them!

Dear  Elaine, 

Thank you  for the beautiful flower arrangement that you or a staff member made for the husband's coffin on Tuesday. It was perfect, the right size for the coffin, the right style - not too formal and a delightful mix of flowers.
I went to the grave today and they, especially the roses, are standing up well to the frost.

Thank you again,
Helen Mardell


I just wanted to express my gratitude for the absolutely gorgeous blue and yellow casket spray you composed for the service for my friend - I couldn't have been more pleased (and it was much admired which was additionally pleasing).

Many, many thanks.
Patricia Malcher

Dear all,

Yesterday you delivered a hand tie to 20 Norbury Way in Bookham (ordered by Janet Meyer) containing a mix of red and white roses, spray carnations etc. The hand tie was for me – their daughter – and they gave it to me yesterday afternoon when I went over there to help prepare dinner. I just wanted to say a huge thank you. Your hand ties are always beautiful, but I think you excelled yourselves this time. It looks so glorious and the mix is inspired, even down to the robin redbreast hovering within the stems. I have transferred the flowers into a big vase and it is taking pride of place in my lounge.

I know it is probably a bit unconventional to email you, but this gift from mum and dad came as such a lovely surprise and I wanted to make sure to thank you too for the part you played in putting it together. It will be a joy going into the lounge over Christmas and new year and seeing such a thoughtful and beautiful display. Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas (I bet you need a rest!) and very best wishes for the new year.

Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas (I bet you need a rest!) and very best wishes for the new year.
Thank you again Lesley



Hey Gemma and Elaine,

I hope you are all well. I just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of myself and my new husband (still not used to that!) we had the most amazing day made only better by your beautiful flowers! I have attached lots of photos from the day some of the bouquets, the aisle, the Evelyn suite and then just some nice ones of us on the day for you guys to see. I will be tagging some more pictures on my Instagram which I hope is okay!

Best wishes

Hi Sandra,

Hope you are well. Matt and I would just like to send a MASSIVE thank you for the beautiful flowers you put together for our wedding day. The table display, bouquets, button-holes and corsages were all absolutely stunning. We couldn't have been happier.

All the best, Joanna and Matt xx

Hi Elaine,

I am so embarrassed it has taken me so long to write this email but I wanted to say a huge huge thank you for our beautiful wedding flowers, they were absolutely incredible and so much nicer than I had even pictured, I had so many complements on the day and more from friends back here in Australia who've seen pictures of the day.

Thank you again so so much


Dear Elaine and Gemma,

We just wanted to send a huge thank you for the absolutely stunning flowers you provided for our wedding.  I know we were asking for something a bit different to what you had created before, but everything was perfect, exactly as we’d hoped! Your attention to the smallest detail and support with practise arrangements was so appreciated - I cannot praise your service and professionalism enough.  So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the flowers were and I can honestly say it was when the bouquets were dropped off that the tears started - I was so happy with them.

Thank you again,
Nikki & Iain
