Woven Wreaths & Hearts
Woven wreaths and hearts are becoming very popular and are ideal for woodland burials. as they will biodegrade completely. Woven together to produce a wreath made from either Salix, Cornus, Magnolia or Alder; choice flowers are then woven into the wreath creating an incredible design without the use of floral foam. Ideal also to adorn a Lychgate at a church.

Available Sizes:
10″, 12″, 14″, 16″ Woven Wreath/Heart


The Sympathy Wreath & Open Heart
Everlasting life symbolised with a floral wreath. Wreaths & Hearts are available in a variety of sizes and styles from compact – absolutely crammed with flowers to a loose design of woodland details, cones & mosses  – a beautiful arrangement!

Available Designs & Sizes:
10″, 12″, 14″, 16″  Sympathy Wreath

The Casket Spray
Placed upon the top of the casket, sprays are arrangements of flowers in a design to suit the deceased. This could be a simple design of open white lilies or a meadow design flowing with wild flowers or even their favourite flowers from their garden. The design can be single-ended but I recommend a double-ended version as this suits the casket from all directions. The length of the spray is according to the casket size.

Available Sizes:
2′, 3′, 4′, 5′, 6′ Casket Spray 


The Sympathy Posy
A round design of beautiful flowers with a foliage trim. This is similar to the wreath design but without the hole in the centre. Designs can be a simple white floral tribute with a rose adornment which the farewell letter can be place beside or a luxurious mix of roses to a meadow design of wild flowers. A candle can be placed in the centre after the ceremony.

Available Sizes:
10″, 12″, 14″, 16″ Sympathy Posy

Sympathy Letters
Sympathy letters are usually made using white double Chrysanthemum flowers as a base and placed on a rack to spell out the name of your loved one and will accompany the deceased in the hearse to the ceremony.
The tribute is then placed in front of the casket for the ceremony.  They are a simple tribute and can be highlighted with other flowers and colours.
Woodland designs are a popular contemporary choice with mosses and foliage instead of Chrysanthemums.


Prices will be confirmed as a quotation. For funeral flowers please give as much notice as you can so I can get hold of the right flowers in time. Short notice is fine but I will need to use what I can find.

Funerals are a delicate matter which need to have all the details correct – For ease – please fill out the form below so I have all the information. Please note – sadly I can only accommodate funerals in Oxfordshire. 

I will get back to you as soon as possible.

It’s not something you want to think about at a time when your world is falling apart. I know from my own personal experiences and also from working in the industry just how difficult it can be to make a decision, organise and plan a funeral.

All my work is bespoke. I make everything just for you. My most popular style is a woodland, loose and natural but I like to incorporate a favourite flower, something from a memory or even flowers, vegetables, fruits from your own garden.

Delivery or Collection
I like to liaise with the funeral director, chapel of rest or church directly to discuss when and where they will need your flowers. I will deliver these to them and they will then tend to them for you. I can deliver them to a home address should you prefer. Alternatively, you are very welcome to collect from me in Dean Court near Botley.
