Sunflower Design florists was set up in late 2005 by Eileen Fagan and Stuart Mc Glynn. Since then we have built a reputation for quality and service which sees the vast majority of our work coming as a result of couples recommendation and referral. The primary focus of the business has always been on providing Bespoke Wedding Floristry to couples in the Leinster region.

The structure of the business differs from that of most other Florists in that we operate on a freelance basis from a workshop rather than a high-street premises. This enables us to provide a much more flexible, cost effective, one to one service to our clients.

Working from a budget (set by YOU) we offer help and advice on the types of wedding flowers available and the size, colour and proportion of arrangements, to achieve a look that is not only stylish, practical and personalised but also cost effective. We understand that every couple want the best for their wedding day but we are also mindful of the financial and emotional strain planning even a small wedding can create. 

We have built an excellent reputation within the industry over the past number of years because of our dedication to three basic principles: High Quality Product, Fair Pricing Structure and Dedicated Customer Care.

Eileen did our beautiful flowers for our wedding in December and she did an absolutely amazing job. After a consultation meeting, Eileen was able to recreate what I envisioned for the day and I am so happy we choose her for our wedding day. She made our bouquets, button holes and unity candle arrangement for the church ceremony. The flowers were so fresh and lasted days later. Eileen was also very helpful in choosing the flowers and has a great knowledge of what flowers work well together. She spent the time discussing all the different options with myself. She is very positive and friendly. Eileen was a great support on the morning of the wedding also, as she was fixing my dress and placing the buttonholes on the groomsmen. It was great to have her there on the morning of the wedding. Thank you so much Eileen.

When we first met Eileen I knew we'd made the right choice. It was a family affair when we all arrived down to her studio. I'm not an expert on flowers but I knew what I liked and didn't like and like a true professional Eileen could see my vision and she brought it to life. Everything from start to finish, from communication to the Wedding day, Eileen was a dream and everyone commented on not only the flowers but on how lovely she was too. She's such a warm person and her passion for flowers shines through plus she really knows what she's talking about, I trusted her and knew she'd put together something beautiful but she exceeded that. I would highly recommend Eileen to anyone getting married, she's both professional and personal and all round just a lovely person who puts together beautiful flowers. Thank you again Eileen.

Having planned my wedding from
abroad, Eileen was such a pleasure to work with and could not have been more helpful throughout the whole process. Such a professional! I was blown away when I seen the flowers on the day of the wedding and we were so happy with how everything was set up!

What can we say about Eileen and Sunflower design, apart from we had the most amazing experience you could ever ask for. Eileen is an amazing beautiful person whose knowledge of botany absolutely blew us away. We came to Eileen with two requirements, to make our wedding flowers as environmentally friendly as possible, but to also make them as beautiful as possible. Now as two people who really had no idea and somewhat lacked a creative flare we were fully riding on Eileen?s talent and ability.

Eileen was able to deliver the most amazing flower arrangements, bouquets, button holders and even stepped in to provide flowers for the bridesmaids hair, last minute ceremony roses and help with the decoration of cheese wedding cake. She truly went above and beyond to help us and was so much fun to chat to and hang out with. If we have any regrets, it would be not having invited her to the whole wedding day to enjoy it with us.

If you are lucky enough to book Eileen, you are truly in talented hands and in great company.

Eileen could
Not have been more helpful. Her ideas with colour and how she complimented my dress as it was not white made everything.

She is a wealth of knowledge and was so helpful on the day also. I could
Not recommend her highly enough.

On a recommendation from a Facebook request that I posted on Celbridge Information just a mere month before my son?s and daughter in laws wedding, I contacted Eileen. From the very moment I called her she immediately put my mind at ease and I knew I could totally trust her. I needed 4 bridesmaids bouquets along with the bridal one, several small buttonhole ?bouquets ? and sprays for both sides of the main aisle with ribbons and flowers. Now the request was for natural and wild themed bouquets! Eileen pulled out all the stops sent me several ideas and photos which I, in turn, had to send on to my daughter in law in Canada for selection and approval. We couldn?t have been happier on the day of the wedding with Eileen?s amazing bouquets and creations which exceeded our expectations and were hugely admired by all the guests! She is so professional and caring that she personally delivered the bouquets to the hotel and actually pinned on all the button holes to the lapels of the wearers! The flowers were just breathtaking, colourful and natural looking so top marks to Eileen for fulfilling our request above and beyond our expectations. She?s a true legend and I would highly recommend her to any perspective bridal party. I should also add that the price she charges for her work is extremely reasonable compared to other florists. Eileen is a real gem.

We chose Eileen for our flowers based on her great reviews & we were not disappointed. Eileen is AMAZING. She was so professional yet good craic & always lightened the mood. She dropped our bouquets to the hotel before the church & I felt like crying when I saw them- they were everything I had asked for and more. She listened to what we wanted and delivered. Eileen was also at the church and fixed my veil etc before I walked up the aisle, she was truly amazing. A nicer woman you could not find. So many guests asked us who did our flowers because they loved them so much. We 110% recommend Eileen, she is an absolute Gem. Such a lovely person with a passion for all things flowers. Thank you so much Eileen.

I can't praise Eileen enough for her amazing work - I had a very specific vision for my wedding flowers (sunflowers, autumn leaves, pumpkins, floral crown) and Eileen made everything into a reality. She's so kind, so funny, and just made the process so easy - it was honestly magical to see how she'd put everything together in the church and the venue and in the photos, it looks incredible. I'd give 10 stars out of 5 if I could! Thank you, Eileen!!
Response from Sunflower Design
Ah Marybeth! Thank you so so much for that lovely review- I was such a happy florist to be working with some of my favourite flowers and it was a pleasure to be a part of your Big Day! It means the world to me to get positive feedback and you’ve made my day with that and the lovely picture you sent! Thank you again and very best wishes to yourself and Richard for the future together!

We were recommended Eileen by some friends who she did flowers and decorations for their wedding. We had heard great things about her but the experience we received from Eileen was more than we could have ever asked for. From my first phone call with Eileen, she was very professional, kind and I just knew she understood exactly the look we were going for. She gave us ideas that we would never have even thought off and that?s the detail that makes everything more special on your wedding day. Eileen was so accommodating and her bubbly personality and genuine kindness and loveliness was just so special and really added to the build up of our big day. The colours and the way the flowers, bows, candles and lanterns were arranged were beyond beautiful and everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful everything was arranged. Eileen went above and beyond for our wedding and from giving you those reassuring words and knowing she would have everything so perfectly beautiful, we would highly recommend Eileen to anyone getting married or for any occasion in fact. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts Eileen.

Shauna, Thank you so much for taking the time to write that lovely review!! I really do appreciate it-not only all the lovely things you said on a personal level, but it helps my business sooo much for other couples to see that they can trust me to look after them on the Big Day! Congratulations and very best wishes to you for the future!

Eileen was great at handling all of the prep for our flowers. She was able to source and design a dream bouquet for us at a very fair value, even with flowers that wouldn't have normally been available at this time of year.

She was also extremely flexible allowing us to adjust the bouquets to make just the right tweaks. She has a very keen eye for style and made the floral arrangements so pretty that our guests commented that we must have spent much more on flowers than we actually did.

Eileen and Stuart are excellent at what they do. We organized everything during lockdown so was done through email and messages, Eileen gave me lots of options, ideas and advice. I know nothing about flowers and sent a picture of what I was thinking of and what I received was even better, I was absolutely delighted with them. They delivered the buttonholes to the lads, then bouquets to me and then headed off to arrange the church flowers. Absolutely excellent service. Eileen gave us advice on how to hold the bouquets correctly (believe me this makes a huge difference in the photos) also how to attach buttonholes and corsages properly. I also got bouquets for both our mams and some grave arrangements which were beautiful. I highly recommend Eileen and Stuart they are so friendly, professional and reasonably priced

Eileen did the flowers for my wedding and was absolutely brillant. She was so professional and such a pleasure to deal with it. She went above and beyond all our requirements. She even helped out with delivering flowers, helping me with my veil and the buttonholes for the boys. We were delighted with the flowers and her service was just so great. I would recommend Eileen for any wedding or function, you wont be disappointed. Thanks again Eileen

From the moment I met with Eileen, I knew we would be in good hands! Such a personable lady and so helpful. We were due to get married in May but Covid had other ideas- Eileen couldn't have been more supportive around rescheduling and nothing was too much hassle. Our flowers were just stunning! I wish I could add photos to this review!
Eileen is an absolute amazing florist who is clearly passionate about what she does and puts you at ease the minute you speak with her. I would highly recommend her to everyone!!!

Eileen was an absolute pleasure to deal with. From the first consultation, right through to the day itself she really puts in a huge amount of effort, produces amazing flowers and personally delivered the flowers to both houses the morning of the wedding. She is very good value for money, and even went above and beyond to help fix my wedding dress outside the church before walking up the aisle! We really appreciate the quality and friendliness throughout the process, we highly recommend her!

Eileen created the flowers for our wedding and I couldn?t recommend her highly enough!! From the very start she was an ease to work with and extremely professional! She is so creative and takes in everything that you say!! She provides an excellent service and decorated the church beautifully! To say I was surprised at her cost was an understatement!! I couldn?t believe the value for money! When I arrived at the church Eileen was still there and even helped me out of the wedding car! She has such attention to detail that she wants to make sure everything is perfect including your bouquet upon arrival! Honestly look no further than Eileen for stunning flowers, exquisite church decoration and great value for money!

Eileen was recommended to me by many people I knew and I would highly recommend her to any of my friends for their weddings. At our consultation I felt she really listened to my ideas and just got what I was asking for. The price was extremely good.
The flowers were exactly what I?d hoped for. Eileen and Stuart did a beautiful display for autumn outside the church incorporating some things we?d made. They took these to the church and set it all up. It was beautiful.
There?s a photo of Eileen attaching a flower for my granny and my granny is beaming! A picture paints a thousand words.....Eileen?s calmness, precision, jovial nature mean she is so easy to work with. She goes above and beyond.
We?ve had so many comments from people about the style of our bouquets, the flowers in the church and the display outside and that?s all high praise for Eileen and Stuart. I couldn?t recommend Sunflower Design highly enough.

I cannot praise Eileen highly enough!!!! To be quite honest, I wasn't all that excited about booking flowers for my wedding, but after a meeting with Eileen...I left with butterflies.
Eileen is very passionate about what she does, and has so much knowledge and experience. She also really cares about what you, as a bride, want.
Eileen created a great value package and we were just thrilled!!
When our bouquets arrived at the house..I was blown away. They were stunning!! Eileen gave us girls great advice about how to hold and carry them.
As for the church..we would have been lost without her! She organised us all, kept us calm and was just a fantastic presence.
Thank you for everything Eileen, it was just a pleasure :)
