"Clare was fantastic from start to finish! I ordered a recreation of my sister in law's bouquet as a gift. The attention to detail is incredible, and the end result was so so beautiful. Thank you Clare, I'm so grateful and I'm amazed by your incredible talent and craftsmanship!!"
“I recently had the pleasure of discovering Petal & Bird, from the moment I first reached out to Claire, her commitment to providing a personalised and heartfelt experience was evident. I can confidently say that her stunning creations surpassed all my expectations and touched my heart in the most beautiful way"
“Clare did an amazing job recreating my wife's wedding bouquet for our 1st 'Paper' wedding anniversary. The quality and detail she achieved from a few photos I sent her was incredible. And all in a relatively short time frame. It certainly brought a tear to my wife's eye when she opened up the gift."
"I can't thank Clare enough for the beautiful flowers we received for our first wedding anniversary! I asked Clare for 3 of the main flowers from my wedding bouquet and couldn't be happier with the results. They look so realistic and match the pictures perfectly! Clare was brilliant at responding to any questions I had and got back to me quickly, I highly recommend this company! Thank you so much Clare!"
“The flowers have arrived and look beautiful. They loved it thank you. A very special gift made with love. Thank you again they are amazing"
“Thank you so much for making these beautiful roses. They were gratefully received"
"We ordered a recreation of our daughters wedding bouquet from Clare as a Christmas present. An extremely professional experience from start to finish and the end result was just so amazing!!. The quality and skills used are like none we've seen before. The arrangement is so life like, its like our daughter has her exact bouquet transported back from Canada! Needless to say, she was over the moon with her Christmas present. The display itself was packaged extremely well for transport. And we received exactly when Clare said we would, even with all the postal strikes. We can't recommend Petal & Bird highly enough. Clare, thank you SO much for helping make our daughters Christmas one she will never forget."
“Just wanted to send a massive thank you for my beautiful wedding flowers. They were perfect, and I love that I have them forever. We haven’t had any official photos yet but when we do I’ll send them through. But here are some to show your gorgeous creations in action. Thank you so much for fitting me in at short notice, I’m so pleased I found you!"
“Clare recreated our wedding bouquets in a frame as a first anniversary present for my wife. She was a pleasure to work with and responded quickly to all of my emails. The finished frame is perfect and the flowers look very realistic. Can't recommend Petal and Bird enough - Clare is a magician. Thank you!"
Clare was brilliant from the first contact we had with her. Her attention to detail is amazing, meaning she had captured the smallest details in that were hidden away in the bouquet, and the colours in the finished product are perfect. This bouquet was a surprise present and it has blown her away! Absolutely stunning work.
“Our wedding was delayed due to the pandemic but during our original planning we were able to visit Clare in her home. We were immediately taken by Clare’s attention to detail and passion for her work being able to see some of her previous remarkable creations. After this initial meeting we knew that we wanted Clare’s flowers at our wedding. Despite the subsequent cancellations and date changes, Clare remained in close contact with us, checking on any new requests or changes or other thoughts we might have had and updating us frequently (all the while with a new baby to work around!). We immediately fell in love when we finally got to see her work which was exactly what we had envisaged. Everything was perfectly made and arranged with astonishing levels of detail (including individual pieces of pollen within the flowers!). Despite the incredible detail and delicacy of the work everything was sturdy and withstood the rigours of a busy wedding day. The colours are incredibly vibrant and really sing in each picture of them. Best of all their permanence mean we get to keep them forever (as well as making excellent gifts to the bridesmaids and groomsmen). Words can’t really do Clare’s flowers justice but we would hugely recommend her as a person and her work. Thank you very much!"
“Clare recreated our bridal bouquet as a paper anniversary present. The result is fantastic with amazing attention to the details. Needless to say the gift went down extremely well and the bar is set very high for future anniversary presents! Thank you so much."
“We couldn’t have been happier with your creations, absolutely beautiful, thank you!”
“Thanks for that Clare, we got a message to say it had arrived. Supporting the business is easy when you have made it easy for us to pay for things and the communication is great!"
“We were finally able to have our wedding on Saturday. My flowers were absolutely beautiful and people honestly did not believe me when I told them they were paper- they got so many compliments! Thank you so much again, beyond anything I could have hoped for. "
“We honestly can’t thank you enough for our beautiful wedding flowers. I still can’t get over the fact they’re paper, I kept trying to smell them, they look so real. I loved that we could have whatever flowers we wanted no matter the season and it was perfect that they last so long after we had to delay the first date. It was really special having sweet peas in the bouquet to remind me of my Nanny and we both loved having the lord of the rings book page roses in there too. You’re so incredibly talented and we will treasure our flowers for many years to come."
“11 years of my original flowers box framed left them looking sad and nothing like the ones on my big day. Clare managed to recreate my bouquet and buttonholes to an outstanding level...if I'd know about her I'd have used her flowers on my wedding day! They are stunning and look just like my wedding photos. Thank you Clare you are amazingly talented!"
“I am so so glad I came across Petal & Bird!! Clare is so brilliant and creative and she was also very helpful with any questions I had. I absolutely adore my paper bouquet and the fact I can keep it forever. I also loved that I could have exactly the flowers I wanted without having to worry about the season! I chose the flowers to match our birth months along with foliage to remind me of my family back home who couldn’t make the wedding due to travel restrictions. Clare tied all these elements together so beautifully and made a matching flower crown for me and button holes for my husband and son. These were perfect too and I was impressed with how strong the flowers were too despite looking so delicate!"
“Thank you Clare for creating this lovely paper posy to mark Inari turning one. Wild flowers from Finland and the November birth flower. Lasting memories for our little'un"
“That is great! So perfect, just what I'd hoped for. I can't wat to wear it for our wedding"
“They look fantastic!!!! Thank you so much"
“ My wife absolutely loved it, she shed a happy tear as she really liked her bouquet, and now she has a replica of it thanks to you and your fantastic work! Thank you again for all the work and hours you put in."
“Kelly loved the flowers you made, she was amazed with how authentic they looked, it gave us many memories from that wonderful day, thanks again for be able to do them at short notice."
“As a wedding gift we got the bride’s bouquet recreated by Clare. From the first contact through to the finished flowers everything was as smooth as could be. Clare took time to understand what we were after, worked from photographs supplied and made something truly stunning that our friends love and will enjoy for many years. I’d definitely recommend Petal & Bird to anyone looking for a unique gift. Thank you Clare - what you create is amazing!"
“My husband had ordered flowers from yourself as a wedding anniversary gift they were a recreation of my wedding bouquet. I just wanted to thank you the flowers are absolutely beautiful and are exactly like my bouquet. You have done an amazing job recreating my special day."
“Thank you so much, so creative. I love my paper bouquet"
“WE LOVE IT! Thank you so much"
“Hi Clare My bouquet recreation arrived today and I can’t get over how beautiful they are! The colours match my bouquet so perfectly and they are just stunning! I am so in love with them and it’s really brightened my day! "
“Wow! That's beautiful - I love it. Really pleased with what you've created. Thanks so much - you are so talented!"
“They are so beautiful. They’re both so pleased, thank you so much. My sisters husband said ‘quick let’s put them in some water’ which shows how amazing they are and how all your hard work pays off to include all the little details"
“Amazing service! Clare is so creative, thoughtful and enthusiastic, her attention to detail and sense of colour takes the flowers to a new level. I had a very vague idea of what I wanted for my wedding flowers, I attempted to share my thoughts and feelings of what I wanted; though the idea wasn't fully fleshed out, Clare took it and brought it to life! It was exactly what I saw in my head but couldn't articulate. Collecting the flowers before the wedding really reduced the level of stress on the day, and they were beautifully packaged. The flowers were a wedding day showstopper and still look gorgeous months later!"
“I absolutely love them, thank you so much. They're bright and cheery and gorgeous. So thank you for being so communicative. The flowers are gorgeous and you've been great. Thank you so much for creating something so special for me."
“That’s amazing, thank you so much! Such an amazing gift to be able to give to someone. I will recommend you to all."
“Clare created a poppy for my late Grandmother. It was simply stunning. The poppy was beautifully handcrafted and authentic. Wholeheartedly recommend her artwork. 5*+."
“It was perfect. Beautiful and beautifully packaged. Thank you so much Clare. I'll be back!"
“They look incredible! Can’t thank you enough!"
“Just wanted to add my thanks for this amazing recreation of Becky's beautiful wedding bouquet that you have created. The flowers Jules and her team at Wild & Co Flowers did on the day were stunning, your interpretation of them is just as wonderful and a lovely keep-sake. I particularly love the Astrantia, so delicate and life-like!"
“ I feel like we already know each other thanks to my lovely husband Mark Hooper. I am Mrs Hooper, Becky. I have this morning opened my beautiful paper flower display. I am absolutely blown away by this piece. I was actually very confused as I knew my actual flowers had been dried and pressed by my mum so didn't understand how this had been created. Your work is incredible and I can't thank you enough for the level of effort and love you put into your work"
“The flowers were all gorgeous. Thank you so much for capturing so many beautiful flowers in one go - they are works of art and it's easy to see that you enjoyed making them too!"

“Clare made some paper anemones for our wedding and they were absolutely stunning. Very very realistic and just beautiful. Everyone commented on them, would 100% recommend."
“Clare made a beautiful replica bride bouquet for my friend’s paper anniversary. I’m a bit of a tricky customer as I’m very picky, but Clare was very flexible when it came to the end design which resulted in one very happy customer!! My friend loved the bouquet and I would 100% recommend Petal and Bird for a very special personal gift"
"I was highly recommended Petal and Bird by a friend of mine after I was looking for corsages for my bridesmaid, my Mum and mother in law to be. Clare's flowers looked amazing, I wanted something that could be kept after if wanted and looked classy. Clare assured me they would travel well as my wedding was in Portugal. They came perfectly boxed and travelled so well. Thank you Clare everyone loved them"
“They look amazing! Thank you so much! I'm so impressed with how similar the colours / flowers are to her original bouquet!"
“Clare replicated my wife’s wedding bouquet as a 1st anniversary present (paper!) It was absolutely perfect and my wife loved it. So much attention to detail and Clare was very helpful and understanding when I first contacted her. She outlined clear costs for what I would like and kindly allowed me to collect from her house even when she wasn’t at home. Thank you Clare.”
“Omg they look amazing! Seriously blown away by them, they look fantastic. They look absolutely amazing, thank you so much! I'm sure Kate will love them!”

They stayed in all day and night and now are waiting to be framed so they’ll forever be cherished.”
“We had the most brilliant evening last night at the Petal and Bird peony workshop. It was a truly lovely evening with like minded people learning new (and rather fiddly) skills. Thank you Clare for being the perfect host and a patient teacher!”
"I had such a lovely evening at Clare's Paper Peony workshop. I felt instantly comfortable and it was surprisingly relaxing. Clare was really patient and showed us really clearly how to do each step. I came home with the most beautiful Peony, far better than I thought I would make. Thank you Clare!"
“Clare made me a beautiful single rose. Made to order in super quick time and a truly unique gift. Thank you”

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making the amazing flowers crowns for the flower girls and the flowers for the bridesmaids hair. They are absolutely incredible and could not have asked for anything more! We can't thank you enough.”
“Thank you for a great evening of creation. It was really nice to meet you and we all produced beautiful flowers. Thanks to your fab tuition.”
“Just to say a really BIG thank you for the brilliant workshop. We all had a lovely afternoon, learned loads, laughed and made some new friends. Also, we can away with a beautiful paper rose. Perfect ! You are a skilled artist and a very patient and engaging teacher. So, thanks again for sharing your knowledge and we all look forward to the next one”
"Clare made the groomsmen the most beautiful flower pins for my wedding last year. I ordered my flowers wholesale and a friend arranged them for me, so I had no actual flowers to show Clare in order for her to make complimentary paper flowers. I sent her screen shots from google of the flowers I had ordered and some pretty vague info and she basically managed to read my mind and create the absolute perfect pins that matched the bouquets perfectly. She also made a lovely flower hair band for my mum who isn’t a big ‘fascinator’ type of lady and she was so pleased with it. It matched her outfit but was quite discreet which she wanted. Clare delivered everything to my door herself and it was all wrapped in gorgeous paper and put in lovely boxes. It just all felt really special. She is just wonderful and I am so glad that we have the paper flowers to last forever"
"My Husband gave me my paper (first) anniversary present. He’d had a replica of my wedding bouquet made out of paper from the talented @petalandbird ! I loved my bouquet, but plants don’t last. So now I have one that will. It was an amazing surprise and such a beautiful gift"
"Wow. Just wow. You a really are a very talented artist. They look incredible. You have done a tremendous job. Jennifer will be absolutely thrilled. Thank you its perfect. Its just remarkable. She will love it."
"Clare made our wedding flowers- my bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets and button holes. Clare is so so talented, the detail in each flower is amazing. We were (and still are- as we get to keep them forever) completely in love with them. Thank you Clare, they are the most gorgeous paper flowers. Everyone loved them and complimented them all day. They went SO well with everything! Thank you!!!"
"Amy and Chris's flowers for their wedding were just perfect. Can't recommend highly enough "
“Helen loved the bouquet she even shed a little tear!"

"What a lovely birthday gift. Petal and Bird they are beautiful. I love them, thank you. They are perfect "
"The bouquet is gorgeous, Thank you! My wife absolutely loves it and couldn't be happier. You are amazing at what you do!"
“Clare has an incredible eye for detail and beauty in her paper flower making. Five years ago she made some beautiful paper flowers for our wedding out of maps, that reflected our love of travelling the world. We received a lot of lovely comments about them at the wedding, and they are still proudly displayed in our home all those years later. These beautiful creations really do last!!"
“Clare made us a custom piece for our wedding cake and they were simply everything we asked for! Nothing was to much trouble and they finished off the cake perfectly! We loved our paper flowers and means we can keep them"

Thank you again Clare! Xx”
