A wealth of experience | Garlands Florist:

All Rachel's early training in floristry was acquired within this Lancashire region; starting at the renowned Myerscough College, near Garstang and then progressing to teaching floristry and flower arranging. The latter was undertaken in the adult learning sectors of both Burnley and Accrington and Rossendale Colleges. This early experience has resulted in Garlands Florist (Rachel's business partnership with husband and musician, Simon), becoming one of the region's premier suppliers of Wedding Flowers, Corporate flowers, floral displays, bouquets, funeral tributes and venue displays for all occasions.

Flowers for all occasions

Piano footnote

There is though, even more to Garlands Florist, in the hands of Rachel's musician husband, Simon McClure Professional Pianist. A talented and versatile pianist  with dizzy fingers, playing throughout the region for over 28 years - * he even has his own portable, beautiful digital piano – music from Simon puts the icing on the cake of many receptions, parties and functions throughout the North West and Rachel & Simon can be often found working alongside each other on the same wedding!
