Testimonials

I have worked with Floris and his team over the past few years on numerous events.
Ranging from VIP Corporate events, conferences, private parties and weddings.
Floris is a man who gets the job done.. within budget and his eye for creativity / detail is second to none.
At venues we are always pushed towards the “inhouse” option, we always demand that we can bring Floris!
I am more than happy to be contacted for references if required.

Floris embellished and enriched the already beautiful venue, Clivenden House, with amazing and breathtaking floral compositions. His passion and knowledge for flowers is evident in the way Floris creatively displays and arranges them. Everything looked so harmonious and so perfect, like in a dream!

Floris is amazing and shouldn’t just be called a florist. He creates works of art!
Joyce Connor, Brides and Beauty

Floris was born to do what he does, I mean, what are the chances of your parents calling you Floris and you becoming an acclaimed florist!
I’ve had the honour of working alongside Floris at a number of high end events and his work always astounds me. Such incredible attention to detail.
His work rate is second to none and he’s finally getting the recognition he deserves.
I heartily recommend him to any of my clients!

Floris did the flowers at our wedding at Queens College Chapel, Cambridge. Not only were we both impressed with his professional and supportive attitude, but his arrangements were some of the most creative and stunning we have seen. We loved the design and how well it suited us and the venue. Thanks Floris! Highly recommend!

Floris Van Den Hoed is truly an artist with flowers. While working together on our photo shoot at Cliveden House, I described a vision of pieces I was looking for and he delivered creations that were truly beyond my expectations. Floris is for a couple who want attention to detail, a true expert, and a florist who can be trusted to deliver on their wedding day. After my experience working with him and seeing his stunning work, I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone I know.

Owner and Chief Wedding Designer, Extraordinary Days Events

We decided to contact Floris for an event we were holding, after several recommendations. He was swift to reply, accurate in understanding our needs, and discreet in delivery and collection of the arrangements in a timely manner. Floris captured the essence of the event in his floral concept. The arrangement instinctively considered the level of presentation required, augmenting but not overpowering the visual dynamic, sending the signal of class and subtlety simultaneously. We had many comments “these are the best flower arrangements we’ve seen on this platform, it complimented the overall impression perfectly”. Definitely recommend Floris for your floral needs!

From a business/professional point of view Floris has been exceptional in everything that he has done for emc3. The quality of his product and his punctuality have been perfect. From a personal point of view he is friendly, honest and approachable. I would highly recommend working with him.

I just want to say a massive THANK YOU for your magnificent flower arrangements last Friday. You put the most incredible effort into producing such an eclectic range of styles, all of them gorgeous and with that special bit of Floris flair and creativity. In fact that is why we all chose you in the first place. You have an original ‘eye’, a genius, that many of your very competent competitors lack. We were so right! And never, I’m sure, has The Orangery at Kew Gardens been transformed in such a way. It changed from a rather cavernous, lofty space with only the two palm trees to relieve the emptiness into a veritable jungle under the Floris ‘vision’! What a surprise when we arrived from the reception at Cambridge Cottage. The room had been given such presence and personality. You are so, so clever! And the tall birch trees were inspirational. The letters are beginning to pour in and they are effusive.

I could go on, but I won’t…. I think you have got the picture. We are thrilled to bits and, needless to say, we will all be recommending you.

Thank you, Floris. You have been a pleasure to work with and it was lovely, when the wedding stress was in full flow, to be able to trust someone so confidently.”
Virginia Hedley, Bride’s Mother

We just wanted to say again how much we loved the flowers you did for our wedding. Walking into The Orangery was like entering an enchanted forest – I half expected a character from Midsummer Night’s Dream to pop out. You really exceeded all our expectations. We absolutely loved the design and it received countless complements from all the guests. A huge thank you, it really was staggeringly beautiful.
