All Saints Church Flowers

Should you wish to have floral arrangements in the church for your wedding, Christening, funeral or other occasion, All Saints Church has a team of flower arrangers who can arrange the flowers you provide.

The flower arrangers give their time for free, but ask that £100 is given to the church flower fund. This ensures that there are flowers in All Saints Church throughout the year. This payment will be required when booking your wedding flowers.

The cost of the flowers that you provide will depend on the type that you choose, but the guidelines below show the most suitable types and the quantities required.

The floral team is able to create the following displays:

  • Floral Arch over church entrance
  • Altar – 1 large pedastal OR candle pedastals
  • Pulpit – large pedastal
  • South Door – 1 large pedastal
  • Chapel – 1 medium pedastal
  • Choir Ends – x2 hanging spray
  • Pew Ends – x6

Extra arrangements can be done, but an additional fee will be added.

N.B.

If choosing lilies please be aware that to open the blooms from bud, they will need to be at room temperature for between 5-7 days beforehand. To avoid staining, stamens should be removed as the blooms open.

We are happy to work with any colour schemes but please take into account that the church is quite dark inside and therefore blues and purples do not show up as well as some lighter colours, especially from a distance.

Flowers can be purchased from a variety of places; florist shops, supermarkets, Covent Garden – the choice is entirely yours.

Flowers will need to be delivered to the church on a Thursday for a Saturday wedding.

Should you need any assistance or further information, please contact the flower team via the Benefice Co-ordinator.
