I love recommending wedding suppliers that are so passionate about what they do and Rhoda from Heaven Scent Flowers definitely is. Her love for flowers started when she was young and after a ballet performance her mother would always give her flowers. The giving of those flowers made her feel very special. Rhoda is so right, when someone receives flowers they feel special – just like a special bride on her wedding day. An every bride deserves special flowers.
I always love finding out more about the person behind the business and suggested to Rhoda that I take a few photographs of her to bring her business to life – rather than just a link to a wedding suppliers website. I love the way Rhoda had thought about items that could be included within the photos as it is not always what you see but what things mean to people.
Rhoda has been a florist for over 14 years now but in business for 5 years. Rhoda brought along a magnolia flowers from her magnolia tree at home. Every year her tree has more flowers on it and just like Heaven Scent Flowers has more flowers in the business – such a lovely thought. Rhoda also bought with her a book and some flowers; the book to tell a unique story and she loves to incorporate something personal into her flower arrangements. For example, one bride was called Naomi and Rhoda researched the Naomi rose. Rhoda takes such pride in her work and will always endeavour to make sure she gets it right for the bride. Recently a bride wanted yellow peonies which are quite unusual and difficult to manage as they open quite quickly. Rhoda created two bouquets one with the open peonies and the second bouquet with the close peonies – she definitely goes that extra mile. The bride loved both!
