Flowers can be a last gesture of love at a funeral, and family and friends will often choose a tribute which reflects the interests or preferences of their loved one. I can create bespoke arrangements in a wide range of shapes, styles and colours to fulfil your vision of what you would like, and can deliver directly to your funeral director.
The photos below are just a small selection of the type of floral tributes available, so if you have something in mind which you can’t see here please do contact me so we can discuss your requirements further.
For examples of different types of arrangements, click on the links below:
Coffin Sprays and Double Ended Sprays
Coffin sprays are a popular choice for funerals and are usually chosen by close family members or by those undertaking the funeral arrangements. These create the main floral focal point as they are placed on the coffin, and can range in size from 3ft – 6ft in length.
Smaller versions of coffin sprays are known as a double ended spray. Both coffin sprays and double ended sprays are priced per foot, depending on the type of flowers chosen.
Wreaths are representative of the unending circle of life and are traditional funeral arrangements. I create wreaths that include colours and flowers of your choice, and these are available in a range of sizes which means there should be a wreath to suit your budget.
These are a traditionally Christian tribute and as they are available in a range of sizes they can be used as a coffin arrangement or as a smaller individual tribute from outside the immediate family. Colours of flowers and ribbon edging used are for you to choose.
Single Ended Sprays
These funeral tributes are created in a teardrop shape, and come in a range of sizes up to 2ft. You can choose your colour scheme and any specific flowers (subject to availability) that you would like included in the arrangement.
A posy is a perfect smaller floral tribute or makes a beautiful gift to send to a bereaved individual or family. Flowers and foliage are beautifully arranged to look perfect from all angles. Again flower and colour choices can be changed to meet your requirements.
A tied sheaf is a beautifully classic arrangement of flowers presented in a simple bouquet which is perfect for family and friends to use to pay their respects. A choice of colours and flowers is available to fit your budget.
Hearts, Pillows and Cushions
Funeral flower hearts, pillows and cushions are more contemporary tributes compared to wreaths and sprays and come in a range of sizes.
These are a very effective way to personalise your tribute in memory of your loved one, and can include both flowers and ribbon edging in your choice of colour.
Bespoke Funeral Flowers
Whilst all my funeral flowers are bespoke, sometimes the most fitting tribute is something that doesn’t fit with the more traditional funeral flowers. We can discuss your ideas to create a specific floral arrangement to reflect your heartfelt gesture of love and remembrance.
