The Gilded Lily provides all types of floristry from weddings, funerals, gift bouquets. In fact anything incorporating flowers ! My workshop is located on the outskirts of Chorley & many say it is like an Aladdins cave ! I specialise in weddings so have built up a great collection of 'props' over the years to dress wedding venues. The service I provide is personal and detailed, working on an appointment basis I take appointments to suit my clients in evenings and or at weekends including Sunday's which are most popular.

Being independent and workshop based my overheads are kept to a minimum which means that clients get the very best service at very keen prices..... Xx

If you still havn't organised your wedding flowers do allow me to help .....

So glad I chose the gilded lily, Margaret was very welcoming, professional, friendly and kind. Explained everything I needed to know and made the whole process stress free and enjoyable. After seeing photos of her work I am so excited to see our finished flowers x

Margaret and Janet did our wedding flowers for us on Friday 14th July. We had a woodland/fairy theme. Margaret listened to what we asked for and helped us to decide on flowers and ideas for our centre pieces and top table. She made everything so fun and exciting. Every time we saw her she made us so excited for everything. On the morning of the wedding Margaret and Janet arrived with the flowers and I was blown away with how beautiful they were. Everyone commented on how stunning they were. I cannot recommend The Gilded Lily highly enough. Margaret and Janet are 2 of the nicest people I've ever met, they are both so talented and professional but they are also so fun and friendly. On the morning of the wedding they arrived with huge smiles on their faces and made me so happy and excited for the day. Thank you so much Margret and Janet, you are both amazing and you made our day so beautiful.

Humble thanks Mrs Snape !! ;-)

Margaret at The Gilded Lily provided the flowers for our wedding on May 26 - She was absolutely fantastic - the arrangements, bouquets and button holes were absolutely beautiful and the service was seamless. I can't recommend her enough!

I love Margaret. She is so nice and helpful in designing the perfect floral arrangements. I used her for my wedding, and she was fantastic. She was extremely professional the whole way through, and she provided a quality product. Thank you!

Margaret provided the bouquets, button holes and table centrepieces for our wedding.

She made the whole experience so easy, her knowledge of flowers meant we ended up with really unique, beautiful arrangements! So much more than we could ever have imagined.

She thinks of all the little things and was so helpful in putting it all together on the day itself.

We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Margaret is a lovely lady and provided a lovely service leading up to the wedding but on the day I was not really happy with the bouquet I asked for and what I received. I asked for a bouquet made primarily of bright freesias (my nans fave flower) and some rose to bulk it out. The bouquet was all rose practically with a few freesia round the edge. The candelabras for our guests tables were meant to be dressed with the themed flowers and dark foliage but there weren't any freesias in them at
all, just some roses with light coloured ivy. Quite sparse and very light-coloured. Not the bright colours and dark foliage as requested and discussed . The bridesmaids hair flowers were roses and not freesias, and quite small and not vibrant.
Margaret was meant to be at our venue at 8.30am with flowers as stated, but on the day of the wedding telephoned to say they would be there at 11-11.30.. 3 hours after agreed time therefore leaving the bridal party to do their own bridal hair flowers as our hairdresser had finished our hair-ups about 1.5 hours before flowers had arrived. Otherwise she would have done it as arranged. We got lots of great feedback from our guests regarding the flowers, but as a bride, doing lots of research of flowers in the months leading up to the wedding, and sending pictures and emails to The Gilded Lily as to what we would like on the day, I was disappointed with the flowers we received. They did not fulfil the criteria and were not what we requested hence the 3/5 star review.

Margaret produced the perfect, most stunning flowers from the button holes, to the bouquets, to dressing the venue and finally the cake flowers for my wedding! What a helpful and lovely lady she is, advising what flowers would compliment each other and the theme I was going for! The flowers just looked gorgeous in the venue and exceeded my expectations! Thanks so much again xxx

After arranging my amazing wedding flowers back in September 2015 I knew I wanted Margaret to do my mums flowers when she sadly passed away recently. Margaret again was amazing and the flowers just beautiful. We discussed what mum liked and what was created was exactly what we had all wished for. Mum would have been so proud. I can't rate high enough and can't say thank you enough xxxx

I just love Margaret & her amazing floral creations. Got to know about The Gilded Lily in sad circumstances when we needed funeral flowers, but still wanted something a bit different. Since then I have had lots of gorgeous flowers for happier occasions like birthdays & Christmas. Don't just think they only do weddings & funerals. Margaret is an outstanding florist, full of original ideas that makes her flowers unique. Just has a birthday arrangement that is simply outstanding. Can't recommend the Gilded Lily enough �

Margaret and team.....delivered the most beautiful arrangements, bouquets and button holes for our daughters wedding. She listened to what she (we!) wanted, provided ideas and was never pushy. We felt completely comfortable and at ease with her.
The flowers were simply stunning and we received so many compliments from guests about how amazing the flowers were. I have never seen a bridal bouquet with so many different flowers and herbs that looked different and beautiful at every angle. I adored every single item provided - Thank you so much Margaret. Would highly recommend.

I went to visit Margaret today with my mother to iron out the final details for the big day next September and she was so lovely and ready to help with the ideas I had in mind! Not only has she been an absolute star of a woman from our initial contact, but from meeting in person today, it took her less than 10 minutes to update the payment break down with the final details and any extra costs!

So far its been an absolute pleasure to work with her and I'm so excited to see how everything turns out!

Margaret did our amazing wedding flowers and was fantastic throughout the process- from the first meeting to the day of the wedding. She helped come up with ideas of how to make things work when I couldn't think of the logistics and was always so friendly and helpful! We had so many comments on how gorgeous the flowers were and the pictures are stunning!
Would definitely recommend her! Thank you so much!

Margaret was absolutely fantastic from making initial enquiries, all the way through to our BIG DAY at Hoghton Tower on the 1st April 2017 when I married my Prince! The first day I met her I knew I wanted her to do our flowers for the wedding as she was so bright and bubbly and couldn't do enough for us. I really appreciated Margaret's honesty as she advised me where to spend money and equally where to save it. The room looked absolutely beautiful for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast as Margaret stayed on site to turn around the venue (and even did a bit of waiting on with a beaming smile on her face - just because she fancied it :) ) Thank you so much Margaret we wouldn't have changed a thing!!!

Margaret is a wonderful person and a fantastic florist! She created the most stunning flowers for our wedding that everyone was mesmerised with. Throughout the day we had various people ask us what the flowers were as they were so strikingly beautiful. I would not hesitate to book Margaret again and can only recommend her to other brides or anybody looking for a fantastic florist. Thank you so much Margaret for creating such amazing bouquets and buttonholes!!

The Gilded Lily did my son and daughter in laws wedding flowers on 30th September 2017. They were the most beautiful arrangements, bouquets,buttonholes and corsages that we could have wished for. Everyone commented on how unusual they were and the staff at the venue were very impressed too. We could highly recommend this florist and Margaret was wonderful with both the bride and myself when choosing the flowers. Don’t bother going anywhere else....you must look at this wonderful florist. Thank you Margaret and your team. X

Review of The Gilded Lily by Jennifer Stephenson

Margaret is absolutely amazing. From first contact she was right on board with producing the wonder flowers I wanted for my wedding. I didn't want a bridal bouquet like all the ones I've seen recently. I wanted unique flowers, wild and bright in my large bridal shower bouquet. My bridesmaids carried never ending circles with orchids twisted through them and the button holes and corsage's for the rest of the wedding party were perfect. Margaret kept within a tight budget and made me the most exceptional flowers, everyone commented on how unique and beautiful they were. I couldn't bear to part with them and have sent them to be preserved! Full of knowledge and great suggestions Margaret was also brilliant when a week before our wedding there was an issue with the registrar and I broke down in tears in her workshop! She's just an all round amazing person and wonderful florist to boot! I would wholeheartedly recommend Margaret at The Gilded Lily without hesitation. Exceptional.

Margaret created the most beautiful bouquets and displays for our wedding at Hoghton Tower on 30 December. Within a few minutes of meeting Margaret, she understood exactly the look we envisaged. Margaret had so many wonderful ideas and honestly delivered more than we could have hoped for. We can't thank or recommend Margaret enough. (Ps.our flowers are still blooming!) x

We had a family celebration at our home this weekend and Margaret created an amazing display for the hearth as well as vintage posies for all the ladies. I would recommend The Gilded Lily for all types of flowers and they always last for ages as they are so fresh. Thanks Margaret.

Margaret very recently did the flowers for my January wedding. I wanted bright colours, mainly orange and she did just that. I was completely over whelmed when I walked into my function room and saw what a beautiful creation she had made. She was brilliant all the way through. From start to finish. I would likely recommend anyone use this amazing lady. Also very reasonable in price.

The Gilded Lily Q&A

The Gilded Lily Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I'm passionate about flowers and I never tire of meeting lovely couples & helping to plan what is the most important event in their lives.
Over the years myself & the small team have made thousands of buttonholes, hundreds of bouquets and displays !

What inspired you to start your own business?

I completed a Masters Degree in Business Administraion back in the mid 1990's whilst working in IT. Floristry was a hobby of mine at that time with friends and family asking me to prepare their wedding flowers .... So I decided to get formal training to learn the correct techniques for wiring, bouquet construction etc & set up the business from a standing start.... The rest is history !

Why should our clients choose you?

Great personal service, super fresh flowers, depth of experience, knowledge of many aspects of wedding planning so a valuable source of advice (do's & dont's, pitfalls to avoid). I'm also a marriage registrar for my own church so know much about the legal aspect of marriages ! Finally cost effective.....due to those reduced overheads.... Why would you not choose The Gilded Lily ?
