We promise to create floral arrangements as close as possible to the original inspiration photos and drawings that we go over together. Due to rare variances in our natural materials, (like changing seasons, weather issues and the perishable nature of our materials) we do not guarantee any specific floral varieties or exact colour palettes.
Floral design like all other art forms is subjective. Floral designers like all other artists have a unique and ever-evolving style and technique. We will use our professional judgement while providing services, which may not include strict adherence to client’s suggestions. Sakurah’s Flower Studio has the final say over aesthetic judgement and artistic quality of services provided. Refunds will not be provided for dissatisfaction with aesthetic judgement or artistic ability.
A non-refundable flat fee of $200 is required to hold your wedding date and book our services. This booking fee will be subtracted from the full total of your order after tax and is good for only one date change. All booking fees are non-transferable to any other couple or for any other purchase. For orders under $400 before tax, the fee to hold your event date will be 50% of your order before tax and will be subtracted from your total. All orders must be finalized at least 3 weeks (21days) before your wedding day. Full payment is due 3 weeks (21 days) before your event date.
Third Party Bookings
For companies hiring my services as part of their packages or services, deposits will follow the same as any other booking (see Booking section). The Company who hires my services is responsible for making payments, notifying me of any changes and arranging for items to be picked up. Flexibility will be allowed depending on changing circumstances at the discretion of Sakurah’s Flower Studio.
One postponement date will be accepted per booking, for a total of two dates per booking. If you require a second postponement date (a third date), the initial booking fee will be considered expired and a new booking fee will need to be paid. As always, the booking fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. A rush order fee of up to $500 may be applied at the discretion of Sakurah’s Flower Studio if your date is moved to an earlier date than was originally booked.

An additional base fee of $50 per location will be charged for all deliveries requiring set up. Examples of set-up include: placing centrepieces, arranging foliage and/or flowers, attaching archway sprays, pew markers etc. If set-up is expected to take longer than 1 hour, set-up fees will be charged accordingly. If you are repurposing items, you are responsible for moving them. We offer a ‘one-pass’ delivery service only, so after completing initial set-up we do not double-back to move items to new locations or venues.
We do not provide tear-down services. You are responsible for disposing of any non-rented items at the venue(s) and returning rented items (vases etc) to 4359 Route 13 in Hunter River.

Refunds on floral arrangements will only be provided up to 3 days after the event date. Refunds are provided per item on a case by case basis. Full refunds for florals are only available on items that are deemed completely defective and thus unusable, and for items that were not provided.
