Company Director & Creative Stylist

Jess

Jess founded S&T in 2018  after graduating at the University of Northumbria where she studied Fashion Design & Marketing. She spent the majority of her University life working in The Events Industry and then moving to Wedding Floristry,

She spends most of her time working alongside brides & grooms to plan their perfect wedding flowers.  

 

Jess is fickle with her favourite flowers as it changes with each season! However, foliage is always a must.  

 

Happiest when she gets to see couples reactions to their flowers. Creating the dream and bringing it to life really is something she takes huge pride in.

Christine

Wedding Events Assistant

aka Mum

Christine assists in the daily jobs around the unit & the setups for your big day. You will often find her with a chair sash in hand moving at a million mph to get them all tied beautifully.

 

Christine's favourite flower is a tulip, she just likes the "flow" and how it "hides in a little sleeping bag" until it surprises you when it blooms.

 

Happiest when given free rein for getting the arrangements as big and as creative as possible - the sky's the limit. She doesn't mind a glass of prosecco either.

Denise

Wedding Events Assistant

aka Mother in Law

You will mainly see Denise at wedding fairs & helping us when we need an extra pair of creative hands. She's always on board for a challenge & to help with any of your questions.

 

Denise's favourite flower has to be a big bouncy hydrangea. She especially likes when there are larger more experimental flowers from wedding fairs to take home.

 

Happiest when warm (which unfortunately the unit rarely is!)

Tilly

Quality Control

aka woofer

Tilly is our chief sniffer at checking all of the beautiful blooms smell as good as they look. 

Tilly's favours anything with a strong scent, stocks, peonies, garden roses are all her favourite - she's not fussed on the colour.

 

Happiest when fed, impartial to a good chin rub and itch behind the ears.

Your FAQ's

Floristry (B) We require a minimum spend of £500 for all floristry. We therefore are mostly unable to supply for example, one bouquet of flowers.




Do we need a deposit?


You will only have to pay a deposit for items that have a high value and therefore require a damage deposit. We will notify you if this is the case. Yes, to secure your booking we require a 50% 1st payment of the total invoice. This is a non refundable payment. The further 50% is payable 6-3 weeks before the event date, failure to pay within this time will breach the contact and will be treated as an end of contact.




How much will it cost?

For a price guide break down, visit our Price Guide at www.sprigandthistle.co.uk/priceguide Delivery & Collection are not included in the cost of items, and will be priced indiviually at the end of your quote.




Reserving your items


To reserve your items, we require a 50% 1st payment (non-refundable) of your total invoice balance. The amount quoted will be vaild for 7 days only, after this period prices are subject to change.

Period of Hire


All hire items are hired for the day requested, should you wish to hire items for a longer period please enquire directly. E.g you have hired charger plates for the 21/07/2022 we will deliver these items the morning of your wedding to the venue, and collect the following morning.




Making Changes or Cancellations


Changes All products are subject to availability, therefore should a customer wish to change their products we cannot guarantee they will be available. All change requests must be made in writing either via letter or email - please note text messages or social media messaging is not accepted. Should you wish to change the date of your wedding, we cannot guarentee full availability and therefore cancellation and admin charges may occur. Cancelations Should you wish to cancel your order, you must do so in writing either via letter or email. Your 50% 1st payment is non refundable, even if your wedding is cancelled. We would suggest for this reason to take out wedding insurance. If the cancellation is within the 6 weeks before your wedding, the full balance will still be payable.




Delivery & Collection


Delivery/collection charges are calculated on mileage, quantities of items hired, man hours, venue access times for set-up/breakdown, any venue access restrictions.




Damages


Hire items are the responsibility of your nominated person from delivery or collection from us if you are hiring dry-hire items.Replacement values vary but are typically 4-8 times the hire value, so items as they are antique or unique can be 10 times replacement value of the hire value. Any missing hire items will be charged at the replacement item value. You will therefore be invoiced for any damaged or missing items. Some items require a damage deposit, you will be notified if this is the case.




Use of Candles


We have no restriction of using real or LED candles with any of our products. We do however recommend you check with your venue, as most venues will now require the use of LED only candles due to insurance details. We will not take any responsibilites for damage caused using candles, this is the full risk of the client.




What happens if my items are no longer available?


Sprig and Thistle reserve the right to use the most suitable hire items in replace of any items in case of loss, damage or breakages. Please note, due to the nature of vintage props all products may not be in absolute perfect condition.




What happens if my wedding is cancelled?


The first payment is a non refundable 50%. We would reccomend taking out wedding insurance to cover these costs. In the case that the cancellation would fall into 6 weeks before the wedding, the full invoice amount will still be payable.




Do you hold my data/personal information?


We may use your information for the following reasons: We keep your contact details so we can contact you regarding delivery and collection logistics. Inform you via regular newsletters about offers, hire products and our wedding planning and styling services. You may opt out of receiving this information at any time by unsubscribing from our newsletters. Please refer to our privacy policy for more information.
