Dear Shelley,
I just wanted to thank you so much for your amazing wedding bouquets and button holes you made for my wedding. You were so friendly and gave me some great ideas. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Thank you again.

Hi Shelley,
Now that we're back from sunny Port Douglas and Hawaii I just wanted to pass on an enormous thankyou for creating such beautiful wedding flowers for our wedding earlier this month at the Sheraton. They were so perfect, I particularly loved the bouquets and many people commented on the flowers at the ceremony on the arch way. But they were all stunning, they look amazing in our photos, and were just perfect for what we were after, I was so excited when I saw them all! Thankyou also for your ongoing liaison with us, providing such great advice and options, it's been an absolute pleasure.
Thanks again,
Ben & Natalie.

Hi Shelley,

Sorry its taken me this long but wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the beautiful flowers you did for my wedding! I could not fault any of them and everyone said they were stunning!! I have attached a few photos if you would like to use any to display your work that is ok too.

Hope you are well and once again thank you for your doing such a professional job and i will definately recommend you to friends and family.


Hi Shelley,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks again for our wonderful, beautiful flowers. I cannot describe how amaing it is that you translated exactly what I wanted from my head into reality. They look stunning in the photographs. They stayed really fresh for ages after the Big Day too, so we got lots of enjoyment of them afterwards which was an added bonus.

Thanks again, Sam.

Hi Shelly,

We have just returned from our honeymoon, so I am so sorry that I haven't written sooner!!!
But we just want to thank you for the most amazing bridal bouqets and button holes!! They were PERFECT!!!!!!! I even tried to save mine so that I could dry it out and keep it forever, but it turns out that i'm not that great at it :) They were extremely mouldy when I returned from the Philippines.
I felt so bad that I didn't get a chance to thank you on the day, but really, they were stunning! You did such an amazing job!!
I have attached a few photos for you so that you can see just how perfect they really looked.

Thanks again! You have a real talent :)

Hi Shelley,

Well, it has been 3.5 months since our wedding and I am an old married woman!
Apologies for the delay but I have attached some photos from our day for you. Feel free to use them as you wish if you would like to.
I was THRILLED with everything you did for me, I was unsure what to expect but I had every faith that you would make me the perfect bouquet and I was not wrong. Everyone loved them and we had lots of favourable comments on the flowers and even though the day itself was a little overcast, the beautiful colours in the flowers really "popped" in our photography. We were so happy with everything.
We just love Port Douglas and it holds a special place in our hearts so we will definitely be back! I have already recommended you to any other PD brides on the Australian Wedding Central forum which was my bible when I was planning from afar.

Thanks again for everything Shelley.

We are back from our Australia trip having got married on 5th May at St Marys and i just wanted to say a huge huge thank you for our flowers i know it wasnt a big order but were chuffed to bits as far better than i expected, was really chuffed. So a massive thank you, especially as we have just received photos and the flowers are so vivid really help make it.

I just wanted to send you a massive THANK-YOU for the flowers you made for us on out wedding day, 7th May 2011.
You made the whole process so easy, especially since I was planning the wedding from Melbourne.
The flowers were even more amazing than I had imagined and were simply perfect!
We had many comments on them and they came out in the photos beautifully.
Thank-you once again - I'll send a few photos for you.

Hi Shelley,

Just wanted to say a big thank you for our wedding flowers. They were absolutely amazing and were everything I hoped for and I had several people comment on how beautiful they were. Always a bit of a concern doing it long distance but they were perfect.

Angela Stojanovic

Hi Shelley,

You provided flowers for our wedding in Port on Sept 17th this year. We just wanted to send you a huge thank you!!!!

The green button chrysanthemums you made up for the church pews, bouquets, buttonholes and vases were absolutely amazing. They were exactly as we imagined them to be and guests couldn't stop complimenting the flowers all day.
Again, thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day the perfect day that it was.
We will be sure to recommend you to anyone planning to have their wedding in Port!

Thank you!!!!!!

Kind Regards,
Natalie and Andrew

Hi Shelley,

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a BIG THANK YOU for the beautiful flowers. All of our guests couldn't stop taking about how gorgeous the centrepieces were and our bouquets. I even managed to keep some flowers and transport them home for memories!
I have attached a few photos so you can see the big day and thankyou so much again. Sorry we didn't get to officially meet but if anyone I know intends to marry up north, I will certainly be recommending you as a flower supplier!

Thanks , Mel

Thanks shelley.

Currently in transit, but wanted to say a big thank you for all your help & advice. We were really happy with the way all the flowers looked, and had lots of lovely compliments on the wrist corsages (not many had seen them for a wedding).

Happy to provide testimonials if wanted..

Thanks again

Hi Shelley,

Just a quick email to say a big THANKYOU for you work on the flowers for our wedding on the 5th of october this year. Having a destination wedding I was a little worried about how it would all turn out as I had no personal contact with you or some of the other suppliers until the day or not at all. You made this process a breeze as you were always so quick to email back when I had asked questions.
the flowers turned out better than expected, you stuck to my brief or a relaxed, green and white theme beautifully and I almost cried when we had to go back home and leave them behind.
I have attached a couple of photos of my bouquet for you.

Thanks again
Karen Boswell

Hi Shelley,
I'm sorry it has taken me so long to write to you - I wanted to wait until we had a couple of pictures to send as well.
A HUGE thank you to you and your team at Flowers n Lace - we (well, me!) were over the moon with the job you did. Everyone commented on the beautiful bouquets and LOVED the posies in the pails at the reception. We donated those to the residents of the nursing home next door to Sea Temple the following day and apparently were a hit then too.
We will recommend you to all those we can. I've mentioned you on a forum for Port Douglas weddings too.
All the best,
Lisa and Simon Rees
