A dream come true wedding…

A dream come true wedding…

When you are a florist and you marry…another florist, who does your flowers? In the case of Dominique & Jürgen Herold a team of some of the most talented florists in the world arrived to help them make their floral dream wedding a reality.

The magical setting at Schönfeld Castle in Germany was the venue but where did the flowers come from? Another magical moment came in the shape of a wedding present with a difference. Dominique and Jürgen who had acted as comperes for the last two years at the stage performances of the Floral Fundamentals platform at IPM Essen were amazed when Marius Dekker took the couple to one side and quietly told them that their wedding present from DGI, G-Fresh and the Floral Fundamentals growers would be the flowers for the ceremony. Dominique said “After IPM when Marius told us they would give us the flowers as a present - well - we just went crazy!”

The couple sent in their request list to Piet van Kampen and almost immediately he replied that more flowers were being offered by the Dutch growers than they had listed - could they use them? It was literally time to phone a friend(s). Petra Konrad, Nicolaus Peters, Oliver Ferchland, Max van de Sluis, Hanky Frèrejean, Stein Are Hansen and Christin Bergh flew in and even Marius and his wife Annelien were pressed into action as the designs took shape.

Dominique said “You can’t imagine how happy we were! These flowers meant everything to us! Without Floral Fundamentals, our florist family, the gardeners, Marius, Annelien and Piet we wouldn’t have had this week!! Of course, we would have had flowers, but I can speak for all of us when I say that each and every florist working and having fun during our wedding week could see just how much love the growers had had as they selected their flowers for us. Every stem had a fantastic quality! Even if the gardeners were not with us during the party, their flowers and their passion for their materials were with us all the time. And now, again, I have teardrops in my eyes because I am still so touched by all these great people being around us.” Even better, another Floral Fundamentals Partner took care of delivering the flowers in pristine condition and thanks are also sent to the team from FleuraMetz for their help.
