Working with Gemma for our wedding flowers was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our big day. We had spent weeks trying to find somewhere to provide beautiful arrangements and bouquets at an affordable price for our August wedding at Cloughjordan House in Tipperary. As we were planning our wedding in Ireland from the U.S., this proved especially difficult.
I started reaching out to florists I found online and was quoted huge sums for limited work. I was starting to get pretty stressed out and scrambling to find someone when my now father in law, suggested trying a local florist from Carrick-on-Shannon, my husbands home town. I could not have been more impressed, we were absolutely blown away by the quality of Gemma Fosters work.
She was a pleasure to speak with in the weeks leading up to the wedding and really understood what type of flowers we were looking for — locally sourced and with a sort of “informal wildflower” vibe. We chatted several times in the lead up to the big day, and she was so reassuring and kind. When I threw in a few last minute requests, she was quick to get back to me to reassure me that they were doable. In addition to her professionalism and clear skill at her craft, Gemma charged us an affordable and fair price for her stunning work and really made us both feel looked after. She and her mother — who helped deliver the flowers — both had big hugs for me on the morning of the wedding when they arrived with the most stunning bouquets for me and my bridal party. Gemma truly went above and beyond anything I could have asked for.
Her stunning work was matched by her kindness and professionalism and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a florist for a wedding or another event.
"Gemma was such a pleasure to deal with for our wedding and very professional. I absolutely loved our wedding flowers and it was definitely a highlight to see the beautiful bouquets arrive to my home and walk into the church transformed by Gemmas wonderful skills..It made our day so perfect and everyone commented on how beautiful the wedding flowers were. I honestly can't recommend her enough.
Thanks again Gemma and best of luck with everything."

"5 Stars without a doubt! Gemma was a pleasure to deal with. I don't know much about flowers so this wasn't a job I was looking forward to but as soon as I started talking Gemma knew what I wanted. Everything from the flowers & service to the church décor was perfect & everyone commented on how pretty the colours were. Thanks again Gemma & I will be recommending you to all my engaged mates xx"
