Just a really quick note to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for being the most amazing florist EVER. I EVERYTHING BRIAN, and honestly nearly cried when I walked into the barn – it just all looked so, so beautiful and perfect!. I felt amazing and a lot of that came down to knowing I had you organising and perfecting everything downstairs, so I didn’t have to worry. Your attention to detail and genuine professionalism, understanding and listening what I do/ Don’t like, it was all exactly as I imagined
You have been an absolutely joy and pleasure to be around since the process started (I’m a little sad its over actually! Haha) and I seriously can’t thank you enough.
I’ll forward you the professional pics showing your beautiful work as and when I receive them.

My fiance and I were referred to Brian by our venue. From our first meeting, he could not have been more of a pleasure to work with in selecting the flowers for our September wedding. We didn't have a specific idea of what we wanted for our central London wedding. Brian met with me in person at his Wimbledon shop and patiently worked with me to determine the kinds of arrangements I preferred and to learn some of my favourite flowers. He ended up designing a series of pieces and potential arrangements on the spot and within budget that were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what we didn't know we wanted! It was truly watching an artist at work; he just "got" it and made that vision a gorgeous reality. We were thrilled with our flowers and even more thrilled with Brian's warmth, invaluable help, fantastic attitude and infectious enthusiasm. We will return to Brian for future work whenever the opportunity presents!

STOP RIGHT HERE – if you are looking for a wedding florist!
We can’t praise Brian enough for the beautiful flowers for our wedding day and 4 months later we still have people commenting on how stunning and beautiful they were.
We met Brian at a Wedding Fair at our venue and immediately connected with his warm, friendly personality. We then arranged consultations on 2 or 3 occasions to discuss our theme and requirements, he couldn’t have been more accommodating and came up with some wonderful ideas, working to our budget and he made us feel comfortable at quite a stressful time.
Brian’s creativity and attention to detail is second to none and nothing is ever too much trouble at all, in fact, he will always go that extra mile.
On our day everything worked seamlessly, I didn’t have to worry about one thing, he exceeded all our expectations, the floral displays for the venue, table decorations, button holes and our bouquets took our breath away and the photos were out of this world - he had catered for everything!
What really put Brian above the rest is that he enjoys and cares about what he does and it goes without saying, that we will be using Brian’s services again and so will our friends.
He is amazing!!

Brian Kirkby Flowers is a fantastic shop. The flowers are first class, last for ages and are beautifully wrapped and presented. Both Brian and Bridget are so helpful, smiley and professional. I recently asked for an unusual & modern arrangement and the recipient is still raving about it. The flower infused chocolate is dangerous! Apparently people are making special trips to buy some (we like the geranium best!)
The shop is inspiring, with a good range of flowers, candles, gift bags containing shower gels and soaps and even chandeliers. Brian's enthusiasm is wonderful - so lucky to have this shop a couple of minutes walk from my house.

Thank you Brian for creating a gorgeous bouquet for the host of my book club, - quite beautiful and my friend loved it. Everyone was excited to hear about you taking over the flower shop in Leopold Road. The quality and choice of your flowers and plants is excellent. It is also great having the candles, chocolates and other gifts available. Your service and advice was very helpful.

Brian Kirby is a Master of his Art. I first met him at a wedding fair where I was instantly taken with his friendliness, his calm personality and his sense of style and vision. During our numerous meetings prior to the wedding he understood my brief and budget and was able to suggest numerous options of how he would be able to create what I envisaged without allowing the budget to spiral.
On my wedding day Brian's work excelled in all areas - my bouquet, the button holes, the bridesmaids bouquet, the church, the venue - everything was absolutely perfect and exactly as we had agreed. Not only this, but Brian was punctual with his deliveries on the wedding morning and was very calming and supportive when he arrived at the bridal house - even giving me a reassuring hug when nerves kicked in!
All in all I have to say that Brian's work is second to none and you'll struggle to find a better or more accommodating florist. Not only this but Brian is committed to every job and would never make you feel that any order was too small. I would thoroughly recommend him - so much so that I've now started using him for my flower deliveries throughout the year and I have to say, that to date, his floral displays have never disappointed.

I met Brian when I was looking for a wedding florist. I had wanted a traditional theme for my flowers and wasn't sure what to expect. After 2 or 3 consultations with Brian, my wedding day arrived and I can honestly say he exceeded all my expectations. Every wedding needs a Brian Kirkby.
Brian Kirkby's floristry skills are nothing less than exemplary. He certainly knows how to add wow to stunning!
Thanks a Bunch, a great little florist on Leopold Road,
Can tend to your floristry needs whether you are young or old.
Doris and Richard make your flowers look great,
I sent some to my friend who was only 28.
Thanks for the great job of cheering people up,
When I need more flowers, I will definitely look you up!
Having relatives in that neck of the woods, Iʼm a frequent traveller to that area of London and find myself in frequent need of a good Florist and Thanks A Bunch are much more than that.
The place has a lovely look and feel about it and the selection/arrangement of plants/flowers is befittingly classy and excotic for Wimbledon.
Above all else, the service and advice is exceptionally friendly; having been there a handful of times, Iʼm greeted and treated like a Pub Landlord would treat his regular, and thatʼs what tops Thanks A Bunch above all others.
I have had the occasion to use Thanks a Bunch florists in Leopold Road, and what a delightful bunch of people Doris and Richard are! I needed a flower arrangement for a colleague who had just had a baby boy - Doris went to great lengths to find out precisely what I would like to ʼsay with flowersʼ and put together a marvellous and individualised bouquet which, needless to say, was a big hit with my colleague. Faultless flowers and superb service!
