DELIVERY

To ensure a smooth and timely delivery process, please provide accurate personal details before placing your order. This includes the recipient's full name, address (including the correct postcode), and telephone number. Additionally, provide your daytime contact number or email address in case of any delivery issues. Special delivery conditions apply to certain locations involving third parties, such as hotels, hospitals, and offices. In such cases, the authorized person's signature will serve as proof of delivery. Please be aware that not all hospitals can receive flower deliveries, so it's advisable to call in advance to confirm their policy.

All our products and flowers are subject to availability. If there are any supply difficulties, we reserve the right to substitute a product of equivalent value and quality without prior notice.

Our flowers are dispatched and delivered by DPD. In case the recipient is unavailable at the time of delivery, the flowers may be left on the property or with a neighbour. If you have a preferred delivery location, kindly specify it when contacted by DPD. Alternatively, if you prefer not to have the flowers left unattended, please indicate this clearly in the delivery information during the checkout process. In such cases, the flowers will be returned to the delivery depot, and the recipient will be left a card to arrange a re-delivery.

 

Please note that adverse weather conditions or unforeseen events beyond our control may result in occasional late or cancelled deliveries. In such cases, we will contact you as soon as possible to reschedule your delivery date. Our liability will be limited to the price of undelivered goods and the delivery cost.

If you request leaving a delivery unattended at any address, you acknowledge that we disclaim all liability arising from the delivery being unattended for any period. This includes potential issues like theft, contamination, or temperature changes.

 

Once the flowers are delivered, they become your responsibility. We cannot be held liable for delayed deliveries caused by third parties or due to events such as fire, flood, or mechanical breakdowns. Additionally, we are not responsible for deliveries made to the wrong address due to incorrect postcodes, house names, or numbers.

For nationwide next-day delivery, orders must be placed by 11:00 AM. We also offer deliveries on Saturdays and Sundays if our premium delivery services are selected.

Our bouquet deliveries cover London and the closest counties, while Christmas wreaths can be delivered to any address within the UK.

 

CANCELLATION BY YOU

If you wish to cancel an order, please send a written notification to info@katedbloom.com at least five working days before the scheduled delivery date. During peak periods, we begin processing orders earlier than usual due to the high volume of deliveries. Consequently, we may require up to 10 working days' notice for any cancellation or changes to be effectively processed. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in providing sufficient notice as it helps us maintain the highest level of service and ensures a smooth shopping experience for all our customers.

 

CANCELLATION BY US

We reserve the right to cancel the contract between you and us under the following circumstances:

1.​If we do not have sufficient stock to fulfil the order for the Products you have placed, or if there is an error in the listed price or description of the Products due to a typographical error or incorrect pricing information received from our suppliers.

2.​In the event that we cancel your contract, we will promptly notify you via email and proceed to refund any amount you have paid using your credit or debit card. However, we are not obligated to provide compensation for any loss or disappointment experienced by you.

 

 

REFUNDS

We take pride in the quality of our flowers and plants and offer a minimum guarantee of 5 days from the date of delivery, provided that the care instructions are followed diligently. Rest assured, we take great care in packaging and distributing our flowers to ensure they reach the intended recipient in pristine condition. However, in the unlikely event that your flowers have sustained damage during transit, please retain the flowers and notify us within 24 hours of receipt. Regrettably, we cannot be held liable for claims reported beyond this specified time frame.

In the event of damaged flowers, we will strive to offer a suitable resolution. If feasible, we will replace the damaged flowers with fresh ones. If a replacement is not possible, we will gladly provide a full refund to the purchaser. Our commitment is to deliver beautiful and vibrant flowers, and we stand by our guarantee to ensure your satisfaction with each purchase.

 

RETURNS

Due to the perishable nature of flowers and plants, we regretfully cannot accept returns. As living and delicate items, flowers and plants have a limited shelf life, and their condition can quickly change after delivery. To ensure the utmost freshness and quality, we recommend thoroughly inspecting your order upon receipt and adhering to our care instructions. If there are any concerns or issues with your order, kindly reach out to our customer support team within the specified time frame mentioned in our guarantee policy.

OFFERS AND PROMOTION CODES

At our discretion, we may periodically offer products at discounted prices. These special offers are valid from the time they are introduced until the end of the specified offer period and cannot be used for purchases made before the offer introduction date or after the offer end date. If a customer has already made a purchase and subsequently finds that the price of the purchased product has been discounted due to a special offer, the price at the time of purchase will prevail.

As the availability of our special offers is subject to change, we reserve the right to alter the terms of these offers, promotional codes, or withdraw them entirely at any time, without prior notice. Furthermore, we may, at our absolute discretion, provide different personalized special offers and promotions, allowing only the intended recipient to redeem the associated discount.

Please note that discounts cannot be combined with any other offers, and only one promotion code can be used per order. With the exception of specified cases, voucher discounts cannot be redeemed against orders placed during key peak periods where supply is limited. Such periods include, but are not limited to, the 7 delivery days leading up to Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

Lastly, discounts and voucher codes cannot be applied to courier delivery charges. Percentage-based discount vouchers are applied solely to the cost of the flowers or bouquet, unless stated otherwise.
