Flower displays in church can be arranged by the church’s own flower arrangers – the flowers will be charged for at little more than cost price – contact details are available from the parish office. Alternatively you may wish to make your own arrangements with a florist. If you wish to take the flowers with you to a reception venue after the ceremony, you will need to make your own arrangements.
