FROM Louise Cardini
“My mum and I attended one of Helen's wedding flower workshops last weekend and it was brilliant! A lovely, relaxing day full of great tips and tuition, reassurance, loads of beautiful flowers and even delicious cake. I was worried I'd taken on too much by doing my wedding flowers myself but now I just feel excited and will hopefully be proud of the results. A really good fun and great value day which I would recommend to anyone even considering doing their own flowers. Thank you so much!!”
