L. R. Event Director – Octobre 2016

Dear Wayne and Jeff,

we do believe that flowers are the essence of a wedding: they should reflect the couple’s personalities, create an atmosphere and convey meaning. You fulfilled, and often exceeded, all our hopes for our wedding. You managed to grasp the atmosphere we had imagined with such finesse, sharing with us your insights and never compromising on what you know to be beautiful.

But we do not only want to compliment your incredible work as much of your success has to be due to your humanity. Working with you over the past year has been such an enjoyable experience and we will certainly miss it. Our journey together has been filled with joyful encounters and we always rested easy, knowing that we could trust your sense of style and attention to detail. You are both passionate and caring individuals and that has been reflected in every single one of your creations on our wedding day.

So, dear Wayne and Jeff, dreams do sometimes come true and for that we truly ought to thank you.

JM & A – September 2016

Hi both,

Thank you so much for your hard work on our event, it was really lovely to work with you. The flowers really did look stunning and I think all the guests were blown away by the way we managed to turn the room around for the evening dinner.
It was so great to be surrounded by such positive people like you and your team, ensuring we had a stress free event experience.
Hope to work with you very soon again and good luck with your upcoming events!
Best wishes,
JMB – Event Manager – February 2016

HI Wayne, thank you so much for everything

you and Jeff did for us to make our wedding look so gorgeous, I’ve had so many compliments about the decoration and all the flowers , it looked just stunning and the chapel….I have no words to describe when I walked down the aisle how unique and special I felt!!

It had been a very stressful time with the weather situation but in the end it was just perfect. Thank you so much for all the extra work you did for us with moving everything and being so generous with the flowers.

We really appreciate all the work and effort and I think this wedding is going to be in the history :)) and no one will forget it so easily…

Big kiss and please contact us if you guys ever come to London!

Many thanks and love,

F & P – October 2015

We were really thrilled with how the flowers turned out

,especially the ceremony area. It was really special, and everyone commented on it. Thank you for all your input, you guys were a pleasure to work with, I would most certainly recommend you.
All the best to you both,

K & M – August 2015

The flowers and tables were more glamorous than I ever could've imagined,

so thank you so much for making all those dreams (and prolific pinteresting) a reality. And despite the glamour and glitz, for including such sentimental and cherished aspects like the flowers from when I was young and my special bouquet. Memories and feelings to last a lifetime…
Thank you once again and love to you and Jeff xx

A & J – September 2015

We contacted Wayne at very short notice

when the florist who had been selected by the event planner for my daughters wedding in September let us down at the last minute. He and his partner responded quickly and positively to my daughters concept adding their unique touch. They could not have been more helpful efficient and the end result far exceeded my expectation. I would not hesitate to recommend them as they are a very talented and professional team For me, a keen gardener, I thought their colour palette and choice of flowers was truly inspired.

A & R – Mother of the Bride

I just wanted to write to you to say a massive thank you

for our unbelievably amazing flowers. They were more beautiful than I could have imagined and they made the whole event.  You and your team were fantastic and I can’t thank you enough!
A & R – September 2015

Dear Wayne and Jeff,

I wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for your beautiful work at our wedding at Villa Rothschild a fortnight ago.
The flowers were certainly a highlight of the event and I am still in awe of how incredibly beautiful it all looked! I can’t tell you how sad I was while doing the bridal bouquet toss! Ha ha!
Thank you again,
C & R – September 2015

Dear Wayne & Jeff,

Thank you for your lovely wishes, you guys are so sweet. And thank you for making us the most beautiful Sofreh ever.
Without you guys the wedding wouldn’t be the same, you guys made our night the dreamiest, most beautiful and at the same time so different from any other wedding.
Wish you both the best of luck and hope to see you again.

A & M – August 2015

Hello Wayne, Jeff.

Philippe and I are truly thankful for the amazing and beautiful decorations that you prepared for our special day! Everything was perfect and the colour combinations, choice of flowers and candles, and placement of the decorations fit so well with the venue itself. Once again, thank you very much for making our day a true and unforgettable memory! The guests were amazed by the decorations and so were we.

Last but definitely not least, I have to say that the houppa was just stunning! I am very happy that you convinced us to go for this one! We cannot wait to see the photos and the video once they are ready and we will share these with you too!

Both Philippe and I wish you all the best, and thank you once again for your beautiful decorations.

A & P – July 2015

We can't thank you enough for all the beautiful work

you guys did to make our wedding day so special. Your arrangements, bouquets, candles and not to mention chandeliers (!!!) just brought the whole event together. It was just so perfect for the setting and every detail looked, smelled and TASTED amazing :)

We’ve sent a little thank you note but i expect with the American « snail mail » it won’t have reached you quite yet…

C & R – June 2015

Hi Wayne and Jeff,

The flowers were amazing and we could have not have been more satisfied with the work you all did. We have gotten so many compliments and post about how stunning they were! We are still waiting on the photos to come in but as soon as they do I will send you some and we also have a few blogs that want to feature the wedding so I will be sure to forward you details and copies of those things too!

It was so nice to work with people that got my style and brought all the things I envisioned to life on the first try! I had no problem trusting you guys because the quality of work you do is superb and it made my job as the bride very easy. Thank you all again for all the hard work, the decorations and flowers were flawless! You all definitely played a huge part in making our special day one that is and our guest will remember and talk about for years to come.

All the best,

E & B – July 2015

I wanted to thank you

for the flowers on Saturday and Sunday. In particular, my mother spent the entire dinner at the Ephrussi commenting how beautiful the table arrangements were! Everything was gorgeous and complemented the fairytale effect of the whole venue.
Thank you very much for the bouquets; they look wonderful in all of the photos!
Thank you to you and Jeff for all of your patience over the last few months.

L & G – July 2015

Dear Wayne & Jeff,

Thank you so much for bringing your amazing creativity & imagination to our wedding at Château de Castellaras. The beautiful work you did was nothing short of perfect from the candles to the hanging greenery & perfectly ripe cherries on the table it brought the event to life! My favourite moment was right before the ceremony, I was very nervous to walk down the aisle & the smell of my bouquet calmed me down enough to actually enjoy the moment.
We will certainly never forget our beautiful day & wish you all the best success in work & life.
All our best,

C & R – June 2015

Dear Wayne & Jeff,

Thank you for making our wedding day at the Belles Rives so special and beautiful.
We did not imagine that it could ever look so stunning, everything you did was so perfect.
I also appreciate the advice and support you provided along the way at the planning stage.
Thanks for everything, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you both and we hope to see you again!
With lots of love,

J & P – July 2015

For the last 4 years we’ve hired Wayne and Jeff to decorate all our events with their creative florals.

We have used them on all our Cannes events during the Cannes Film Festival. To list a few : CK, DreamWorks, The Weinstein Company and the last two Hunger Games parties for Lionsgate. WRF really know their art and have contributed to the success of each event.    Wayne and Jeff are creative, intuitive, fun and spontaneous. They’re reliable, have a friendly approach and attitude.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautiful florals.

Dear Wayne,

I can’t thank you enough for your help in making the How to Train Your Dragon 2 art exhibit and reception such a huge success in Cannes. The flowers were phenomenal and finished off the space perfectly! Your team worked together to pull off such an amazing night. Your time and commitment to this event is greatly appreciated, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks again for working so hard behind the scenes to make sure the night was flawless.
Best,

Wayne, Jeff and the entire team at Wayne Riley Flowers are the hardest working florists

I’ve worked with in my five years in the industry. Wayne is so passionate and considered about his work that it is an absolute pleasure photographing any wedding we’ve ever done together. His design and detailing is unrivalled and the team always manage to deliver something visually unique to each wedding. On more than one occasion he has been mentioned in the groom’s speech, which is absolute testament to his hard work and how much he and the team are appreciated by their clientele.

Hello my darlings!!!!

We are so touched by your words and it is us that have to thank you...

you were amazing!!!!!! Everything was perfect and spectacular, beyond our wildest expectations. I had a vision of how I wanted everything to look but I could have never dreamed that it would be better than what it looked like in my head. And the comments have been non-stop compliment after compliment from everyone. A few guest may have even thought (or indeed tried) to take some of the hanging flowers! Of course we trusted you… for us it was love at first sight with you and we will never forget what you did for us, every detail, every thought you put into every corner, how you took our ideas and made them into flower perfection!, how you took care of us from the day we arrived to the day we left….and indeed the best part was that we could feel your heart and soul and the love you shared with us that day
We will be forever grateful for your dedication, your hard hard work and for how beautiful you both are; it was a true pleasure to work with you guys and a greater pleasure to get to know you. You took a stressful part of the wedding and made it easy; we left it in your hands completely and never for a second hesitated to trust wholeheartedly and without reservations. To say that we were right to do so would be the understatement of the century! You made it better than the dream.
I personally have such fond memories of a small moment with you….. chatting on terraces and flowerbeds, you Wayne in the middle of the bridal room surrounded by crazy half dressed latin girls waiting for the bouquet, Jeff hanging from trees to pamper my 3D visions of the place, all the boys ganging-up on me over yellow flowers… and ice-cream catch ups at the brunch. You will be part of so many memories of one of the best weeks of our lives forever!
We love you both

Wayne and Jeff were not only the most kind and friendly florists I have ever met

they are also incredibly knowledgable, know what works and their creative and artistic skills are very impressive. Their first proposal was basically spot on only better than what I imagined and the final result on my wedding day was the most beautiful, magical and stunning picture I have ever seen. The wedding arch was the most beautiful flower creation I have ever seen and countless guests came up to me all night to say how beautiful, fresh and nice smelling the flowers were. Everything was perfect and I feel very blessed to have had them by my side for the biggest day of my life!

Dear Wayne and Jeff,

The flowers for our wedding were PERFECT. I was blown away when I first saw the tables! It was exactly what I envisioned, but couldn’t quite « explain. » Y’all nailed it! It was elegant, cheerful, pretty and just « wild » enough. I thought the flowers looked gorgeous against the grays and whites of the tables. The peonies really popped and the mixture of vases with the candles was perfect. Thank you for working with us to get things just right. It was a fairy tale setting that you created! The Friday night party and inside the church were so elegant, understated and classy, exactly what I wanted. My bouquet – ALL of the bouquets–were so, so pretty and feminine and full. I’m so glad we went with this mismatched idea – everyone looked unique and the end result was so feminine, French and soft.
I’m so glad Kerry recommended you and that Xavier captured your work so beautifully. I’m glad you enjoyed the process and I hope you both get some rest soon!!! It looks like it has been an exhausting summer!!!

Dear Wayne and Jeff

Thank you for doing such a spectacular job on Kali and Francois' wedding at Bastide St. Matthieu.

The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what Kali had in mind.  It was perfect!!!!  You and your team are the flower wizards.  I also  loved the simplicity of the church olive branch arrangements and white pillars… again, PERFECTION!!
Give all of your team a big bisous from the McNutt’s.  They made us all very happy.

All the Best

Dear Wayne Riley Company,

This letter is from me, the mother of the bride groom,

whose wedding took place at Ephrussi Villa and Gardens on the 20th of August, 2014. I am writing to congratulate you on the choice of flowers and the beauty of the arrangements. You made me and many people so happy that the flowers were so elegant, smelled wonderful and have a touch of love and spirituality. For my part and my family, we bless every hand that worked on these flowers. I only wished I could take some of them with me back home to Lebanon. May God bless everyone who preserves, shows and passes the signs of God to Others. I must especially congratulate Roula Theodory and Naila Hourani, the wedding planners, for choosing you.
Sincerely

Hi Wayne & Jeff,
I can’t thank you both enough for the stunning flowers

– the look was exactly as we wanted, sophisticated and classic, and the colours tied in so well with the bridesmaids and everything else that was going on. The chapel looked incredible and so dramatic – I only wish I’d taken note of it all earlier, as the entire ceremony was a blur until I sat down and took a deep breath to sign the register! Really, the flowers looked stunning ! A huge thank you again to you both, and I hope you’re surviving the hectic wedding season and can book in some well deserved rest time soon,

Le Park, 2014 

From the start, Wayne and Jeff absolutely understood the colourful, natural and playful florals that we wanted.

They incorporated elements that we brought in ourselves perfectly and handled all our requests wonderfully. They had ideal suggestions for every type of arrangement we wanted to achieve. We wanted the flowers to complement the lush garden setting the wedding was in so Wayne & Jeff mixed different vessels, colours and plant types for texture and contrast that everybody loved. The tabletop arrangement was simple yet full and vibrant. They also picked the perfect flowers to adorn our naked wedding cake, which really set the whole piece off. Their organisation is clearly seamless as we hardly even noticed the set up or clear away. The flowers contributed a huge amount to our enjoyment of the day, thank you!

 

A and J

As a bride the design and detail of the wedding were very important;

perhaps all the more for me given I work in the fashion industry. Flowers and the small details are such an essential part of this.  Wayne and Jeff quickly understood my ideas and their execution on the day was exceptional! The alley and altar for our wedding was a highlight as made me feel very comfortable walking down the aisle. The entire wedding setting had a magical feel to it and had an incredible romantic feel »

People are still taking about my bouquet-I gasped when I saw it-it was so big and fluffy and so elegant! Thank you again,and I’ll be sure to recommend you to any future brides getting married in the south! X

Le Castellet, 2013 13

Wayne created the most amazing creations for my wedding weekend.

I wanted a different style/theme for each day’s events and Wayne perfectly captured what I wanted. That wasn’t an easy feat considering that I was more or less just throwing out vague adjectives as to what emotions I wanted the arrangements to convey. Somehow he just knew what I was looking for, took charge, and never gave me any cause for worry or concern. Working with a professional like Wayne made the whole process so easy and stress-free and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Each color and type of flower was just right and created a wonderfully breathtaking environment.

Wayne really took the time to understand my vision for the wedding

and ended up creating a setting that superseded my expectations and my dreams. When I walked into our reception, my breath was completely taken away. His taste, caring attitude, sense of humour, creativity and can-do attitude was a breath of fresh air.

 

S

Wayne did us proud with his creativity and sense of colour and design

being caring about the people he worked with and being cost conscious. He became a friend at a time of great pressure and produced the most beautiful arrangements both for the ceremony as well as the dinner tables. I cannot praise him enough. »

Mother of the bride
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild 2013

Wayne did an absolutely exquisite job with the flowers at our wedding.

He has incredible taste and is very talented. My bouquet was  perfect — gorgeous roses with a beautiful silk wrap around the stems. All of the other small items for the wedding party, such as the boutonnieres, corsages and flower crowns, were also wonderful. When I arrived at the ceremony site I was completely enchanted — he had transformed it into a wonderland. The pomanders hanging everywhere were like beautiful little sculptures and the arch that we stood under to say our vows was incredibly full and lush. Just stunning. After the ceremony, we headed indoors for the reception and Wayne had done a remarkable job in that space as well. The tables were full of beautiful flowers and gorgeous candles. Everything felt soft and romantic, just as we had asked. He had also created a lovely floating sculpture for a small indoor pool. We were beyond happy with Wayne’s flowers and we cannot recommend him highly enough. He is diligent and hardworking, but also kind and easygoing. It was a true pleasure working with him.

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful floral arrangements you created

for our daughter’s wedding in September.  You interpreted her wishes exactly with outstanding attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble – it was a joy to work with you.  Without doubt your arrangements contributed hugely to a truly memorable day.

Mother of the Bride
Key Largo, 2013

Wayne was able to take my vision and direction and translate that into something that far exceeded my expectations.

His proposal on multiple concepts and his willingness to present mock-ups enabled me to envision his concepts and solidified my trust in his expertise. This ensured that on my wedding day I did not spare a concern for the flowers, as I knew they would be perfect. The arrangements done by him and his team transformed my three day event into something magical, his use of the space was breathtaking. If I lived in France, Wayne and his team would be a permanent fixture to all my future life events.

Château de Saint Jeannet, 2013

In June we married and asked Wayne to create our table flower displays and bouquets

for our provincial themed wedding in Roquebrune Cap Martin. He also provided flowers for our flowers girls head garland, the brides hair, petal confetti and cake decoration. We asked Wayne to create arrangements which looked like they had been picked from a country garden and reflect the essence of provincial countryside, olive leaves, lavender, rosemary combined with pastel colored flowers. Wayne took on board our vision and budget and created artistic table settings and bouquets which looked beautiful and fulfilled our vision of our perfect wedding. They also live on adding colour and detail in our wedding photos. We could not have been happier with Wayne’s work for our special day.

Thanks for the beautiful flowers at our wedding in Cap Ferrat.

We were worried when we realised we had to revert to plan B because of the weather and get married indoors, rather than in the beautiful gardens of Villa Ephrussi, but you managed to transform the room with your flowers and candles, so much so, that no-one thought it was plan B! You were a pleasure to work with. All the best for 2014.
