Libby Swain  30 August 2021

We loved our wedding flowers from Elvet Flowers! The team was friendly, efficient, and listened well, turning our ideas into beautiful bouquets. We were so pleased with what they created for our tiny lockdown wedding that we came back a year later so they could provide the flowers for our wedding celebration too!

Just want to say thank you so much for the beautiful flower bouquets, button holes and displays that you created for our wedding. I always think flowers are such an important part of any wedding and was delighted that we could have such lovely flowers at our own wedding.

We were so pleased with our flowers at the wedding, they were amazing and just what I imagined in my head! Everyone commented on how pretty they looked. We would like to thank everyone at Elvet Flowers, particularly Joan as she was the person I saw the most! 


Jane Cutts  8 August 2020

Thank you so much for our amazing wedding flowers. Due to COVID we weren't able to come and view samples however they turned our exactly as we had envisaged. We gave our vision and Elvet Flowers sculpted and created it perfectly. The flowers were absolutely stunning and we received so many compliments from our (virtual!) guests. 

The customer service was easy and efficient. The price was very competitive too. Would highly recommend. 5 stars!


Zoe and Stuart Blanchflower May 2020

We absolutely loved our wonderful flowers for our wedding day at Durham Castle last Easter, and received a lot of wonderful comments from our guests too! So much so that the day after the wedding we donated the larger flower displays to care homes local to our home town in Peterborough.  We were going away on a little 'minimoon' straight after the wedding and wanted people to still be able to appreciate them. Family and friends also took some smaller table arrangements with them and said that they lasted well over a week, despite the heat of last April!

Thanks again to the Elvet team for helping to make our day so fantastic!

Eileen and Alison MacKay August 2018

Thank you so much for the wonderful flowers you provided for my daughter Alison's wedding at Durham Castle.  Everything was so perfectly arranged we were so thrilled.

  • Amazing bouquets with David Austen Roses exactly what Alison wanted.
  • Fabulous table arrangements which looked stunning in the castle setting. (I had the top table one on my piano afterwards, looked amazing there too!)
  • The two large arrangements looked beautiful in both the Church and Castle.
  • The hydrangea plants looked nice outside the loos too!

Thank you for your diplomacy and understanding re the flowers for the church pews.

We cannot thank you enough for your huge contribution to making Alison have an amazing day (and everyone else too).  The flowers were very much admired.

Rachel and Andy 22nd August 2015

Dear Chris and the team at Elvet Flowers, Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers and flower arrangements you created for our wedding- they were absolutely perfect and we loved them. You really understood what we were looking for and we couldnt have been happier thet really tied our whole colour scheme together, and the Great Hall looked absolutely amazing with the gorgeous centrepieces. We received so many compliments about the flowers and have recommended you to everyone.

Sorry it has taken a while to send you a proper thank you - between the wedding in Durham, honeymoon in Africa and returning home to Vancouver it has taken a while for our feet to touch the ground! Thank you again for making our day so special with love and thanks Rachel and Andy - The new Mr and Mrs Booth xxx
