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 !

Margaret has been truly wonderful in helping us plan our wedding. She has made it an enjoyable experience and her input has made organising our big day incredibly easy. Our venue looked absolutely stunning! The standard of what she produced was peerless. Margaret offers exceptional value for money but the best thing is she is a truly lovely to deal with.

Margaret did our wedding flowers on the 29th December 2018. From first meeting her she was so professional kind and understanding to what I wanted. I didn’t really have much of an idea just general winter flowers and certain colours which Margaret transformed into the most beautiful flowers. When I first saw my bouquet on the wedding morning I started crying. They was everything I could of ever wished for. We added more flowers along the way and it was never to much trouble and quickly sorted out by Margaret. Margaret did all our button holes, bouquets, ceremony table, top table and all our centre pieces and the price was so reasonable for the quality and standard and professionalism delivered. We gave our centre pieces away and used a couple for our grandparents graves who couldn’t be with us on our special day and they lasted for weeks and so many people made comments about how beautiful they was. Margaret also delivered the bridal party flowers to my home on the wedding morning before travelling to the groom and family at the venue and delivering their flowers We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us on our special day ❤️ Holly and Ryan West xx More...

Margaret did the flowers for our wedding. They were absolutely stunning and I was over the moon with them. Margaret clearly has a passion for her job, and this clearly shows in the end product. The love, effort and care was evident for all to see in our wedding flowers. From the initial consultation right through to the wedding day, Margaret was friendly, informative and professional. Thank you for being such a special part of our wedding day. More...

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!

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 More...

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 � More...

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.

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 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. More...

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. More...

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!

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 More...

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. More...

Margaret did the flowers for our civil partnership and, when I saw them, I almost shed tears of joy. They were magnificent, and far beyond our wildest dreams. The table flowers put the finishing touch to an already superb room, and made it even extra-special. Margaret herself took great pains to listen to our requirements, came up with a few suggestions of her own, and the results were nothing short of stunning. I cannot recommend The Gilded Lily highly enough - even the guests were talking about the flowers for weeks afterwards! Superb! More...

It's been a while since our wedding in March but the months seem to have flown by. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for being part of our special day. We couldn’t fault your service, from planning to the big day, you did everything you could to meet our needs and the flowers were stunning. We had lots of lovely comments on the day and since about how lovely they were. Mine even made it around Scotland for a week afterwards as I wasn’t leaving them for someone else to enjoy (however there were lots of happy ladies who received the flower displays) and I was very sad when the died. We have now had the photographs back and the flowers look just as amazing! You are really lovely people and do a wonderful job, I am so glad we found you. Thanks again, we will definitely be recommending you to others. Love Joanne and Robert Millington x More...

Margaret you're amazing! Your flowers were absolutely gorgeous and are still looking good in our house a week + after the wedding!

It's been a pleasure working with you from start to finish! I'd recommend you first unreservedly to anyone needing a florist. Lots of love Lesley and Martin xxx More...

Fabulous! Flowers to me and my husband were a really important part of planning our wedding. After visiting different florists we contacted Margaret, on our first meeting we knew The Gilded Lily was the florist for us. I provided pictures of designs that I liked and Margaret and Janet took those and turned them into our dream flowers. All our guests commented on how beautiful they were. We have had so much fun working with Margaret and Janet that I am really sad it is over. I cannot recommend The Gilded Lily highly enough and will tell all my friends and family if they ever need a brilliant florist. Thank you from Mr and Mrs Pryle x x x More...

Is that janet marshall that was. I knew she did something down burge lane but thought it was with the milkman..

Q&A

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 !

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 !

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 ?
