We love designing wedding flowers and it's our speciality here at The Thistle & The Rose.

From stunning bouquets, flower crowns, buttonholes, corsages and venue florals we can provide a full design service and we would just love to be a little part of your special day.

Our wedding flowers are always of highest quality, top grade blooms sourced via our brilliant Dutch supplier. They always go the extra mile to find us the best flowers.


We are are a little bit unconvential and don't work from a traditional florist shop, instead we work from our industrial workshop which gives us lots more space to design!

We are a small family run business and our workshop is in the beautiful west coast Scottish town of Oban. Our team consists of me, Justine (Florist), my husband Jimmy who is the delivery driver and my right hand man and also my sister Lorna who keeps us all organised! We also have Molly dog, our Lab/Springer/Cocker girl who is often in the workshop or out 'helping' with deliveries in the van.

We do lots of local weddings in and around Oban but can travel throughout Argyll and the Highlands too and often provide wedding flowers for Island weddings.


For initial enquiries, please call or email and firstly we will check that your wedding date is free. We are a small team and as such can only take on a limited amount of weddings per year. (We are now fully booked for May and June 2022)

If your date is available, we can arrange a time for an initial telephone consultation. (We are still currently closed to the public so are not offering consultations in person at the moment). We can then discuss all your ideas in detail and get to know your style and personality and get the planning process started.


After the consultation, I will provide a detailed quotation which will remain valid for 14 days. If your date has not been reserved at that time, the date will be opened back up to other couples. On agreement of the quotation a non refundable booking fee of £65.00 along with a signed copy of the wedding terms and conditions is required to secure your wedding date. (The booking fee covers the time for consultations, correspondence, designing and planning your wedding flowers, preparing a quotation and organising the final flower order for our suppliers.)

Before the wedding we will have a final consultation to go over all of the details and I will then send over a final invoice which will be due for payment no later than 30 days prior to the wedding date. Payments can be made by BACS, by PAYPAL or by card over the phone.

On your wedding day we will deliver all of your flowers at a pre-agreed time. A standard delivery charge of £10.00 is payable with your final balance. This covers delivery up to two local addresses (within 20 miles). For non-local address there will be an additional .50p charge per mile.


Every wedding is unique and so we don't offer packages as such but tailor each wedding individually. It's impossible to provide prices for everything we can do but for an idea of our prices I have given a guide below, the price will depend on the variety of flowers used, style and size.
