About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2022

Last update: November 2023

The Rockery is run by Rachel, a florist and flower grower based in a small village in Buckinghamshire, England. Having worked with and created the flowers for some very high-profile clients, exclusive hotels and events in the Middle East during her years living there, Rachel has now returned to the UK and runs her own floristry and events company; The Rockery. Rachel is a florist with over 25 years experience in floristry, styling events and weddings and works with her clients on a very collaborative basis to achieve the feeling and vision they want whilst offering a guiding hand to arrange the finer details and logistics so the big day goes smoothly.

Rachel understands that each wedding is unique, and this takes time, planning and feeling totally aligned with the couple's vision for their beautiful day, and for this reason, she will only accept a certain number of weddings per year so her attention is wholly focussed on the couples, she can get to know them fully and be there for when they really need her. Her style is naturalistic, focusing on nature and a relaxed blended approach using British-grown flowers, working in harmony with the seasons, using sustainable methods and using flowers/foliage grown by herself or her local network. Rachel offers free consultations (either face-to-face or via a screen if more convenient) and follow-up meetings. Formal country house or Boho barn, large impressive installations or smaller intimate events, the whole kit and caboodle or bouquet and buttonhole... contact The Rockery for an initial chat, and Rachel and her team will take it (and the stress) from there.

We also offer easy and clear packages on the website, so if you know your bridal party and approximate guest numbers already, you can budget or pay for your flowers in an instant, and tick that off the long list!

Exceptional Florist! You need look no further!

The Rockery did our wedding in Oct 2023:

Put simply, you BLEW US AWAY with your floristry. We couldn't believe our eyes and we took a good few moments to take a mental snap of the venue. The stem vases we the most beautiful accents and the colours were exceptional!!

The flower cloud was also exceptional and the perfect frame for us to get married under and have our sweetheart table under. The dahlias were out of this world.

Beyond your work, we'd also like to thank you two as people. Wedding planning is...stressful, intense etc etc, but working with you both was nothing but a joy.

Rachel, you helped us realise our vision when we couldn't even articulate it ourselves and Gav, your logistical brain got it all in place (flower cloud was afloat!). Your teamwork is a beautiful example to us of how a marriage should work. THANK YOU!

Seamless, perfection from start to finish!

Well where do I begin? Rachel bent over backwards to accommodate me and my wacky ideas from the get-go. She was always just a text message or a phone call away which definitely helped. She has and incredible eye for detail and exquisite taste when it comes to mood boards and making them a reality. She made (what could have been a very stressful experience) the whole process enjoyable and added her own magical touches of quirkiness to the arrangements which certainly superseded all off our expectations on the day. Rachel’s team went above and beyond to help us with the assembly and de-rig the following day which again is priceless when you are completely shattered from wedding build up. I cannot recommend Rachel and her wonderful team of staff highly enough - when we get our official wedding photos back I will share more but for now here is a little taster of the magic that she brought to our day. The Rockery is not only excellent value for money but also a home grown in the UK and sustainable business which certainly encouraged us to select them over others. If you are in split minds about who to have do your floral arrangements on the BIGGEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE- look not further this is your sign to reach out to Rachel at the Rockery! Fun, colourful, quirky, seasonal and affordable flowers for your big day- what more could you want?

Outstanding

Gosh, where do I start? Rachel was outstanding from my first query to the end of the wedding. She was patient, full of creative ideas and adapted to my budget.

Rachel and her team created a vision better than I could have ever expected. Her team work tirelessly with the change of location due to weather and created the most magical setup in the barn.

Thank you so much for all your hard work, I couldn’t speak more highly of your business!

AMAZING Flowers, Exactly What I Wanted!

I was so happy with what Rachel did for our wedding. Right from the start she understood exactly what theme I was going for and her choice of flowers was absolutely perfect.
Everything was perfect and was exactly what I wanted for our small tipi wedding.
We received so many compliments on the day for the flowers. My bouquet particularly was absolutely amazing, exactly what I wanted!
If I ever need a florist again, Rachel will be my first call.

Excellent Experience with Rachel who is incredibly talented and kind hearted!

We are so grateful to Rachel for being our florist at our June 2023 wedding. We approached her quite close to our wedding but she was flexible, considerate and went above and beyond to help us create beautiful pieces that were not only within our budget, but that were great quality. She helped me add a picture charm to the bride bouquet which meant a lot. Doing more than expected to help a customer is something very rare these days but Rachel did this for our wedding and we will forever be grateful. She made us feel at ease and gave great advice; we especially loved her portfolio of arrangements which was really helpful in enabling us to decide on the right colour and arrangement to go with. She was so easy to work with and always available for questions. From start to finish, Rachel was kind, professional, generous and is extremely talented. We would recommend her to everyone we know. Thank you Rachel for helping us create the most beautiful flower arrangements and for being so kind and genuine!

The most beautiful flower arrangements and such warm, friendly, personalised service.

It takes a certain kind of person to be able to rise to the challenge of creating wedding flowers for a 2 day wedding with very different requirements on each day!!… but Rachel of the Rockery absolutely rose to the challenge, always with a smile on her face and pulled off the most incredible arrangements for us. Day 1 was our “tiny wedding day” - a quaint Hertfordshire village church wedding, so beautiful English roses were the theme! Day 2 was celebration day at Windsor Guildhall, followed by the races - I really wanted my childhood favourite hydrangeas here, the brighter blue the better (despite others advising against!) And Rachel absolutely blew me away with what she came up with in the time she had. So many guests and family all commented on my amazing flowers. They also transformed a plain events room into a beautiful wedding reception space. I cannot recommend the Rockery highly enough. Absolute best of the best. I feel so lucky to have found you.
