  1. Hi Lorcan
    I would just like to say thank you so very much to you and your Absolutely Fabulous team for the simply stunning bouquet that was arranged so beautifully for mums birthday last week … she was blown away … as was I when I went in to pick them up.

  2. Hi Lorcan,

    Hope this message finds you well. I popped into you a few months back with regarding my wedding flowers for our New Years Eve Celebrations.
    Just checking in with you and would like to finalize things with you if I may over the next few weeks.

  3. Hi Lorcan,
    I have already booked you to do the flowers for my wedding on November 24th 2017. I’m now thinking of a floral drape for the wedding cake ( 2 tiers , white icing 10″ and 12″) in a similar style to the bridal bouquet. Is this do-able ? would we need to use artificial flowers? Grateful for any feedback.
    Thanks, Judith

  5. Hi Lorcan, would you be in the shop this Wednesday? I want to talk to you about fascinator to go with wedding outfit I will have with me.

  6. Hi Lorcan,

    I am looking to persue a career in floristry. I absolutely adore your shop and style. Have you any recommendations on getting into floristry? So far any positions I have applied for require atleast two years experience which I unfortunately don’t have.

    Would love to hear if you have any tips or if any vacancies arise in Absolutely fabulous flowers.

    Thank you

  7. Hi Lorcan,

    I am from the States and would love to email back and forth about the flowers I am envisioning for my wedding ceremony at Barberstown Castle.

  8. Hi Lorcan,
    Your florist name comes up as a teleflorist florist in Celbridge. I ordered flowers from this site and don’t believe they came from your florist ,had I booked directly from your shop I would have sent a nice bouquet to my friend for her birthday.
    Teleflorist getting the business in a deceitful way and the flowers they send are nothing like the photos on the website more like something picked from the side of a mountain.

  9. Hi Lorcan,
    We are getting married at the village at Lyons on July 6. We live in Sydney, Australia, so we would be unable to come In For a consultation, would we be able to chat over email or phone (maybe tricky with time difference)?

    I love the bouquet in your gallery 710- and think I would like that feel for myself, bridesmaids and some small simple flower on the table along with the candelabras that are already there!

    Many thanks

  10. Hi!
    We’re getting married on the 27th Feb 2016 at the Village at Lyons. Majella there recommended you to us. We are currently living in Moscow, Russia so can’t really do a consultation in person. Could we organize a Skype call or email chat?
    Many thanks

  11. Hi Lorcan,
    I’m getting married next November at Barberstown castle. I understand you provide the flowers for the hotel on wedding days. I wondered if we could book you for our bouquets and button holes etc as well?

    What flowers are in season in November?

  13. Hi Lorcan,
    My name is Kelly and I am getting married on the 31st of July this year at The Village at Lyons and am emailing to enquire whether you would be available to do our wedding flowers? Our budget is quite modest but we would just want a few flowers for the tables and 6 bouquets (one for myself and 5 for my bridesmaids). We are getting married at the venue itself so we wont really need Church flowers. I love the idea of Wild flowers and baby’s breath rather than roses. My bridesmaids are an aqua green so whatever colours you feel would suit? I’m in London but would be around the area around the 11th of May so could try and call in to you. You were recommended to me by relatives who live in the Celbridge area who said you were truly fantastic!
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
