The Black Poppy


Thank you so much for our beautiful flowers at our wedding. The displays were simply stunning. I could not believe I (actually mum and dad!) had found someone who understood exactly what we wanted even though I could not describe anything to you and did not know any names of flowers! and who was such a pleasure to work with.

You are such a talented lady and the flowers really did make our day truly special.

Kind regards Kevin & Charlotte.

Kevin & Charlottes Wedding – 13 September 2014

The flowers The Black Poppy arranged for our wedding and reception more than fulfilled our expectations and simply blew us away when we saw them. Nothing was too much trouble in the run up to the wedding and Rosalind both brought to life our ideas and helped make our day just perfect-thank you Black Poppy-my silk bouquet, like our memories of the day, will last a lifetime.

I don't think we will ever be able to thank you enough for what you did for us on our wedding day. The flowers took my breath away and we both spent the whole night admiring them. You dressed the venue to utter perfection, with every last detail finished to the highest standard. We just feel so lucky to have the flowers to keep and admire for the future. The staff at The Royal Exchange has seen a lot of weddings and events there, and all of them could not stop speaking about how amazing the flowers looked. I felt like a princess the whole day. Thank you also for the lovely bouquets for ours mum; they loved them, and reduced both of them to tears. The photographer Marianne showed us a couple of pictures on the day, and there was one in particular of me holding my bouquet where both the dress and flowers looked breath-taking.

I honestly think that we will never ever be able to thank you enough for making our day complete.

Lots of love,

Lucy and Brad

Have to tell you Rosalind I had a million oooohhhhhhssss over your new display yesterday! Everybody thought they were real!!!

In keeping with our commitment to sustainability and carbon footprint policy, The Black Poppy produced the most amazing faux flowers for our prestigious Reception in our City of London office tower.

We also found that from the savings made, it allowed us to expand the maintenance of a small external garden, that now incorporates seasonal faux flowers in Winter thus adding delightful colour during this time.

I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for the flowers and the lovely surprise gift. We had a beautiful day and I couldn't stop staring at my bouquet which was exquisite.

Rosalind has been doing a fabulous job with the table arrangements at Le Talbooth, Maison Talbooth and The Pier at Harwich, she's always incredibly helpful and always manages to source unusual flowers for us - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Black Poppy to anyone.

I am so happy with my wedding bouquet it is perfect, three words fabulous, creative, beautiful. Thank you for helping to make my day even more special.

"I chose The Black Poppy for Bartellas restaurant and bar at Furze Hill simply because Rosalind's designs and approach are different. Her ever changing and unusual displays continue to create comment and complement our business perfectly."

Ian Eldridge, Proprietor, Bartellas Restaurants

"Dear Rosalind, you've brought everlasting colour and interest to our rooms, the quality of the flowers you supplied us is fantastic, the only problem is that everyone now touches the flowers when I tell them there not real!

Also a big personal thank you from myself as you have been a pleasure to work with and interpreted our needs perfectly, I would highly recommend other future clients of yours to trust your judgement.""
