Rachel McClure has worked in the floristry profession since the age of eighteen; first as a driver, trainee florist and freelance designer and then as florist manager.
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 Garland's Florist (Rachel's business partnership with husband and musician, Simon), becoming one of the region's premier suppliers of floral displays, bouquets, funeral tributes and venue displays for all occasions.
Established for over 20 years in the Lancashire town of Oswaldtwistle, Garland's Florist is recognised as the place to go for every conceivable flower requirement. Wedding flowers feature prominently of course with an abundance of expert suggestions from Rachel. Add to this, displays for civil partnerships, pink weddings, anniversaries, birthdays corporate occasions - plus of course, decorations for the venues themselves – and this is a typical day in the life of Garland's!
Featured in the UK's top 250 florists and The Good Florist Guide, Garland's is also a British Florist Association 'People's Choice' florist winner. Adding further and more recently to Garland's activity is a popular new service consisting of the supervision of venues themselves and of course, floral displays.
There is though, even more to Garland's Florist, in the hands of Rachel's musician husband, Simon McClure. A talented and versatile pianist ... with dizzy fingers - * he even has his own portable digital piano – music from Simon puts the icing on the cake of many receptions, parties and functions throughout the North West.
