You’ve been dreaming of your wedding day for months… who are we kidding, you’ve been dreaming of it for years.
You know just how you want this special day to feel. You’ve booked the photographer and narrowed down your dress options to a shortlist of just three. Things were going so well that you were considering moonlighting as a wedding planner...
But now you’re feeling stuck. Flowers are a big part of your wedding, but who knew there was going to be so much choice? It’s almost like there are 100,000s of wedding flowers to choose from… oh, wait a second…

The right wedding flowers are so much more than a simple bouquet. And they’re definitely more than something to hide behind as you *oh so gracefully* dab away that tear and thank whoever it was that invented waterproof mascara.
Your wedding flowers tell a tale, and each one is totally unique. A tale of you, your spouse to be, and the story you’ve woven together.
Discover bespoke wedding flowers for Powys, Gwynedd, Chester, Liverpool and beyond. For when you’re looking for elegant and timeless floral designs for your wedding day (and yes, we are willing to travel, an overseas wedding is our vision board!).
When you book Ivy Pip & Rose as your floral designers, you’ll get:
For Friday and Saturday, May to September, prices start at £500 (2021) or £1,000 (2022)
Sometimes, your budget gets in the way of your big vision. But that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to all your ideas. If you’re DIYing your wedding flowers (or getting a loved one to DIY it for you), we can work with you to guide you through the floral design process.

An arrangement guide
Prices start at £75
If you’re local to Gwynedd, we can also include a small group workshop before the wedding for some practical hands-on instruction, as well as ordering flowers and foliage for collection.

We’ll help you weave flowers and floral design into your day. From little gifts to bring a smile to even the most discerning of guests, to magical backdrops for your vows and table arrangements that have everyone so excited they drop the small talk and start talking about your wedding flowers instead.

Send us a message and tell us a little about your wedding and what you’ve been dreaming up. If you’ve got a confirmed date and venue, feel free to share those too. We’ll then send you our wedding checklist (because we all know that wedding planning = more lists than places to put them) and share some information on pricing.
This is our favourite bit because we get to meet for a coffee. Our first consultation can take place in person or via FaceTime (but then you’ve got to make your own latte...). We’ll discuss your budget, ideas, style, logistics, what flowers are in season, as well as sharing our own suggestions.
We’ll send you a proposal and custom moodboard, along with quotes to get you started. While wedding plans do evolve, this will act as our foundation for your floral designs. We’ll work with you, and other suppliers, to create beautiful wedding flowers from romantic bouquets and boho flower crowns, to tumbling foliage gardens and eye-catching installations full of movement.
“Ivy Pip & Rose’s work is amazing, I feel so blessed to have found them! Everyone raved about our wedding flowers, they were so gorgeous. The feel of the designs and the colours were just perfect, while the placement of everything was beyond amazing. They killed it! Everyone loved everything!”
- Amelia, after her wedding at the Goat Marylebone, London -
“A huge thank you to Ivy Pip & Rose for our beautiful flowers. My bouquet, the bridesmaids’ bouquets and the buttonholes were just lovely and exactly what I'd hoped for. And the flowers really made all the difference to the venue.
The team were so helpful in the months leading up to our wedding and I was absolutely thrilled with the results.”
- Jen, after her wedding at Smiths of Smithfield, London -
While these questions don’t come with quite the same fanfare as the one that had you uttering that magic word “yes”, they are quite useful...
We’re typically booked 9 - 18 months before each wedding so that we have ample time to plan all things floral. Though if you’re planning a quick engagement, a shorter time frame can work as long as we have space! Just bear in mind that weekends between May and September are our busiest times.
How much should I expect to spend?
The prices of your wedding flowers will always depend on the style, the location, the flowers used, the flowers in season, the designs required and many more factors. Most of our couples spend between £1,500 and £2,500 on their wedding flowers, while we operate with a minimum spend of £1,000 for our bespoke wedding package for Friday and Saturday weddings between May and September from 2022.
If that’s not in your budget, we also offer a DIY wedding flowers package to suit those couples looking for a lower-priced option.
When do we need to pay for the flowers?
A 25% non-refundable deposit and one off wedding service fee (toward the preparation work) are payable to confirm the booking. The balance is then payable a month before the wedding.
Can I see some more examples of your work?
Absolutely! Our portfolio page is overflowing with inspiration for your wedding flowers.
What happens if the flowers I want aren’t in season?
While we do our best to buy local flowers, we also know that certain flowers can be tricky to source in colder months. So, we try to be realistic and have a global network of reliable suppliers available.
Do you provide the vases and flower vessels?
We can help you with hiring vases, urns, candlesticks and tea-light holders to style your wedding and elevate the space with those all-important finishing touches.
I’m not very creative, will that affect the end result?
Not at all! We love to work with creative couples, and we also love to work with couples who are still ironing out their vision. We’re here to give you as much, or as little, guidance as you need.
