the gilded blog

When you choose The Gilded Lily as your north west wedding florist, you’ll enjoy a one-to-one consultation with Margaret at a venue of your choice. Over a cup of tea or coffee (or a glass of wine!), you’ll have a chance to discuss your plans for the wedding, and to express your own ideas about how you’d like things to look. The plans can be spread over several meetings,

for as long as it takes for Margaret to have a clear understanding of your vision, and for you to know exactly what to expect from your wedding flowers on the day in terms of flower type, colour, bouquet type, style and price.time, in your home or at your event venue, and to be sure of beautiful results.

Dec’s groomsmen looked splendid in their military uniforms – a particular delight for me because it meant not having to make lots of buttonholes !! (protocol precludes a buttonhole on a uniform). Here are just a few of my images – can’t wait to the official ones…..

It Is With Sadness …….

Sadly Its Not Always About Happy Times …… It’s been a busy week preparing floral tributes for those final journeys ….. It’s always a privilege

Colour, Texture and Form in Wedding Flowers

When they come to me for wedding flowers, some couples have a clear idea of what they want. They’ve planned their day with military precision and they know exactly where my work fits into their Grand Vision.
