She's passionate that flowers should look as nature intended. She believes there’s beauty in simplicity, and design is at its best when it’s bespoke, intentional and uncomplicated.

So Beautiful and Personal
The only thing I can say about Carol-Anne is she is absolutely Fantastic!!! She was such a pleasure to work with and create such a wonderful look for our wedding!! I got to spend a lovely afternoon with her as she helped me design beautiful and unique centerpieces, which we were then able to reproduce for our stunning tables! Our flowers could not have been more breathtaking, not only did she come way under our budget and give everything I asked for, she was able to incorporate my family tartan that the flowers matched perfectly!! I could not have asked for anything more!!Sent on 18/07/2018

I randomly stumbled upon Carol-Anne on wedding wire and I'm so glad that I did. After deciding to hire her the whole process ran very smoothly, she understood what I was looking for and ran with it to accomplish things I didnt even know I wanted. She is extraordinarily talented and my wedding flowers were EXACTLY what I dreamed they would be. She was pleasant to work with and kept in contact regularly which is something that is very helpful when you are trying to plan an event as big and as complicated as a wedding. She did a spectacular, stunning and perfect job and I would 100% recommend her to anybody looking for a wedding florist. Thanks Carol-Anne, you helped make my wedding what I hoped it would be and I am eternally grateful!Sent on 27/08/2017

Wow! So fortunate to have found Carol-Anne
Carol-Anne is so talented. She is the best florist, designer, therapist and now friend. She took our vision and executed it beautifully. Imagine applying moss to 120 silver candle sticks. I walked into the venue before the ceremony just to take it all in. The room was breathtaking. She was such a pleasure to work with and I loved coming up with ideas together. There was a lot of large installs to do that day but she and her team gave 110% Thank you CA...I will miss you. I highly recommend Carol-Anne. Please check out her work.Sent on 15/09/2019
Carol-Anne Barnes Bespoke Wedding Flowers's reply:Aww Kim! You're so lovely and gracious to say such kind things. We had a blast didn't we! I knew at our first Facetime chat this was going to be a trip for us all. Katie's vision and your impeccable taste and attention to detail are what I live for. My mantra has always been "beauty's in the details" and you truly understand that. So what if we were mossing candlesticks in our sleep lol. The end result was totally worth every minute! I'm so happy with your reaction to my floral designs. My goal was to blow you and Katie away and I'm thrilled I accomplished that. The best part of our collaboration? You and Katie my friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! xoxo

Carol-Anne made our boho inspired summer wedding dreams come true! Her confidence, attention to detail and passion for perfection was evident from the very first meeting, through to quick follow up emails in between and right up to the wedding day. She listened and brought to life all of the ideas we had brought to her and had great suggestions…things I would never even have thought to include. Her flower crowns and a one of a kind flower necklace (a must!)…completed the bridal parties boho look. She is someone who cares about her brides and takes the time to make sure the day is so special, she made time to hand deliver my beyond beautiful bouquet and that is a memory I will cherish forever. Highly recommend! Thank you so much Carol-Anne!

Carol-Anne Barnes Bespoke Wedding Flowers's reply:What a thoughtful and kind review! I loved that you and Rob were open to my suggestions to add unique boho touches to your wedding flowers. It was so rewarding AND fun to create. It's important to me that your wedding flowers be a reflection of you and your unique love and not a carbon copy. A pleasant change from the norm! I LOVED it and I'm thrilled you did too. I'm touched you understand the importance for me to personally deliver your bouquet and that it was special for you too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for engaging me to design and create your flowers. It was truly my pleasure. xox
