Terms & Conditions

Payment for all orders must be made prior to delivery/collection.

I require up to a week's notice for funeral designs as I do not keep a selection of fresh flowers in stock. 

Wedding Orders:

I can provide a free price estimate via email ([email protected]) on all wedding designs. This is useful if you are planning your wedding flower budget and require a rough idea of what things cost.

If you then decide to book me for your wedding flowers, we will arrange a consultation and a booking fee is required to book the date. This is non-refundable but is deducted off the final balance. A deposit of 20% of the total amount is then required 3 months before the date and the final balance is to be paid 4 weeks before the wedding.

Payment can be made by cash, bank transfer (details on request) or cheque (cheques payable to Sarah James).

Cancellation Policy:

The deposit (not the booking fee) will be refunded following a cancellation up to 4 weeks before the wedding date. There is no refund available for cancellations after this date.

The contract is between the Bride & Groom and myself and cannot be changed or cancelled by a third party.

GDPR new policy update.

Sarah's Floral Studio will only hold the necessary information to process your floristry order, such as name, phone number, email address and postal address if required. I do not store any card or bank details.

All stored personal information is password protected with the necessary security software in place.

Once your order has been fulfilled all personal information is deleted.

Sarah's Floral Studio does not run any marketing campaigns and I will not pass your details on to any such organisations.

I will request permission first before I display photographs either online or in my portfolio/advertising information, giving my customers the opportunity to opt out.
