A NEWLYWED has hailed a Greenock florist's after they rose to the occasion and saved her wedding day.

Bride Kirsty Robb, 28, says she will be forever grateful to the team at Joseph Harley in Nicolson Street after they stepped in late on to supply her bouquets and floral decorations.

She was left in floods of tears when, just a week before her big day, she was let down by her original supplier.

It meant her plans were thrown into disarray after months of careful organisation.

Kirsty feared her wedding to fiancé Stephen, 33, would be flower-free without a bouquet for herself or arrangements for the rest of the bridal party and groomsmen.

She said: "I was an absolute wreck just a week before my wedding. "I couldn't stop crying."

Kirsty, who lives in Greenock, was thrilled when the team at Joseph Harley, especially florist Lynne Henderson, came to the rescue. She said: "They saved my day and they were so nice about it.

"They were great, Lynne in particular.

"They could've charged me an arm and a leg and ripped me off because of how late on it was. "It must've been fate because the flowers were beautiful.

"Everybody on the day commented on how beautiful the flowers were. "Thank goodness the team at Joseph Harley stepped in and saved the day."

Kirsty and Stephen married in the Brisbane House Hotel in Largs on November 4.

The new bride was keen to praise the Joseph Harley team for their efforts, especially after recently reading in the Tele how they were surprising local unsung heroes with beautiful bouquets free of charge simply to put smiles on people's faces.

Owner Simon Harley, along with Lynne and florist Marie Arthur, made and gave away around 60 arrangements between September and November alone.

Lynne said: "A week before the wedding we were in the middle of doing another wedding and Kirsty came to us in a right state but on the morning of the wedding she was a different girl. "We went to her hotel room and she was glowing with happiness and laughing, and that made it all worthwhile."
