A bit about us

Chic Weddings by Cherry Tree Events is a limited company operating from our showroom in Gravesend, Kent with 100% of our work dedicated to wedding floristry and venue styling – weddings are what we do and weddings are what we love! 
From the bride that just wants a stunning bouquet and matching buttonhole to the couple that wants everything from church alter pieces to complete venue transformation no wedding is too big or small!

Who are we?

Meet The Team

The company was formed in 2001 and is owned and directed by Laurie Edwards who after being made redundant from her Event Director role at News International decided to embark on a two year floristry course to turn a hobby into a career.  She was joined shortly after by Louise Carroll-Bent who over the last 20+ years has created an impressive floristry CV.  From managing the floristry department in Fortnum and Mason to providing daily flowers to the likes of Channel on Bond Street Louise now manages our team of equally talented florists.

Helen Barrett joined the team a year later in a customer management role helping and advising our brides on a daily basis and ensuring everything and everyone is in the right place at the right time with the right flowers!  Last but not least are our operations team who make sure vases, chair covers, backdrops and draping are all sparkling clean, delivered and set up to perfection.

Your initial consultation with Chic Weddings

When visiting our showroom in Gravesend you are sure of a warm welcome with or without an appointment to browse our portfolios, table mock-ups, magazines and wedding books.

During an initial consultation over a cup of coffee we go through ideas, talk about colours, themes, likes and dislikes and then design with you bouquets, venue décor, stationery, cakes and finishing touches.

At this initial stage we try not to get bogged down with budgets as we feel some couples will hold back and not tell us what they really want through fear of not being able to afford it.  We focus on design and content and from this conversation build up a wish list of everything required.  We then draw up an in-depth quotation that lists every item, flower content, individual costs, delivery schedule and finally, total cost

Once booked you can telephone, email or visit us as many times as necessary to make changes.  We recognise that this is one of the most important days of your live and we want to ensure that you are happy and relaxed on the day knowing that we are creating the wedding of your dreams.
" To all the wonderful ladies at Chic Weddings,
You're all absolutely fabulous - Thank you for all your thought and hard work!!
Best Wishes "
