Client love…

“The flowers for our wedding was the thing I was most looking forward to and in the early stages of wed-min, proved to be the most difficult to arrange. Thankfully a friend referred us to Julia and suddenly the theme fell into place and I had someone to collaborate with on all of the creative elements of the day.

We had an idea of what I wanted but was not sure how to bring it all together and this was the greatest benefit of working with Jules. Our wedding was held at a beachside restaurant yet we didn’t want a beachy look. We wanted to create a romantic atmosphere but were looking for it to be more sophisticated as opposed to pretty and traditional. And most of all we didn’t want a generic/predictable  wedding look to the day. Jules listened to all of this and worked around the clock providing us with lots of options and advice, drawing on her extensive experience as a premier florist. Despite living on opposite sides of the Pacific, Jules was always in contact and made all of the arrangements come together effortlessly. Many mornings, I looked forward to opening the Pinterest board Jules created to see what creative ideas she had come up with.

The result was a truly special space that didn’t compete with the beach views during daylight and evolved into something magical at dusk thanks to the numerous candles, metallic vessels and impressive large scale arrangements and suspensions that made up the design.

We received so many comments from guests about how spectacular the venue looked and I’m sure we couldn’t have achieved the same impact using another florist. Most importantly Jules was an utter delight to work with, not only for us but our other suppliers and the venue have all commented on her professionalism, relaxed nature and above all her creativity.

I could not recommend Julia enough for anyone wishing to create an event that is custom tailored and anything but predictable.”

“We were lucky enough to meet Jules through mutual friends at a dinner party. Peter is Australian and Jules spent time living in Sydney with her husband, so we felt the connection immediately. The concept for our party was simple – we wanted to feature native wildflowers from the Midwest and Australia. No fuss and no roses, please! Beyond that, we were excited to let Jules get creative and do her thing. As the event space was pretty basic, Jules suggested a ceiling treatment of greenery in addition to the florals. We said go for it.

The end result was absolutely stunning. Jules transformed the space into a garden-like dream. Every table had a different grouping of flowers using a mix of vintage vases and chemistry beakers with tea lights glowing. She creatively draped vines around the perimeter of the ceiling and on the exposed brick wall, adding a softness to the industrial space. We couldn’t have been happier!”

“What Jules did for our wedding was beyond doubt the most creative and heartfelt flower extravaganza we could possibly have hoped for. Her imagination is incredible and her commitment to our day, making it more than we thought it could be, was stunning. Jules is an artist. She has an inspiringly detailed knowledge of her tools and craft. The arrangements she created for us were beyond beautiful. We wish she could be in charge of our flowers for every event we hold in the future”

“My wife and I met Julia through a friend when we were living in London planning our move and wedding in Chicago. We immediately contacted her and knew she was someone we could completely trust with our wedding flowers. Her communication to us was excellent and she really listened to our wishes. The end result was honestly spectacular. All of our guests commented on how transformed the venue was by her arrangements. The bridal flowers were exquisite as were all of the button holes for the men. Julia has also supplied gorgeous bouquets for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. What Julia creates is not something you can find at most florists. We would highly recommend her for any occasion big or small. She has true talent”

“Jules was amazing. She took our vision and created something incredible, beyond our expectations. She is talented, creative, professional, resourceful, dedicated and a joy to work with. We can’t recommend her enough”

“From the very first moment we were introduced I loved Julia’s incredible creative energy. Her enthusiasm for the project was unwavering from briefing until the final touches were laid out on our exquisite table settings. She created a concept that was so beautiful and so perfect for our brief, the end result exceeded everyone’s expectations and we laughed along the way about how tough the judging criteria would be! A wedding where the guest list was a list of amazingly talented designers, architects and interior designers. The beautiful modern creations she came up with were endlessly talked about (not to mention instagrammed!) all night. She was just an absolute joy to work with, great sense of humour throughout all, especially when hit with turbulent weather at the last minute, she had a solution for everything! I cannot wait for the next time I get the chance to work with Jules, she’s just a dream….”

“I trusted Jules with my wedding flowers based on a glowing referral from a friend. Now I will only trust Julia Gordon for floral arrangements and styling. Working with Jules was a great experience. I knew I wanted something unique for my table arrangements and venue, and Jules was fantastic at bringing my ideas to life. The flowers were amazing; I couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out and my guests spoke about them for weeks. I am a perfectionist. Jules went above and beyond in ensuring that every detail was perfect. She was a huge contributing factor in making my day stress free and enjoyable. The mix of her personality, knowledge, experience and artistic talent make her one of a kind”

“The botanical work Jules created for our wedding went above and beyond any expectations. She took an invested interest to understand the brief, design and environment (including wonderful links to the surrounding area) which totally captured us as a couple and the spirit of the occasion. Jules’ creative direction and overall artistic approach played a huge role in setting the tone of our special day. Her professional, yet calm nature, also meant we could enjoy the lead up to the event”

Stephen and Edwina Fenn, married January 4th 2015, Australia

“The flowers at our wedding were just perfect. All I initially had was a colour theme in mind. Jules took time to get to know and understand us and the kind of wedding we were having and made just the most beautiful arrangements that created the exact kind of atmosphere we wanted. She used blooms and greens that I did not even know existed in way that was classic and modern and far exceeded our expectations. I actually cried when I saw my wedding bouquet as it was so exquisite! She is an extraordinarily creative and talented woman as well as such a genuinely lovely person. Her positive energy and passion for her work are infectious. I can’t recommend Jules highly enough.”
