Luxury florals for all occasions.
Rebecca Marsala Flowers (previously known as Gingerlily Flowers in Leighton Buzzard, est. 2009) is an award winning florist set within the beautiful rural village of Swanbourne, close to Buckingham, Milton Keynes and Aylesbury. Studio based in a 19th century converted barn filled with seasonal florals, I embrace what each day presents – one day could be a 50th anniversary bouquet, the next more sombre arranging funeral flowers. I adore flowers and what they mean to people, they are such a significant part of every stage of life.
I launched my company in 2009 as Gingerlily Flowers and in 2017 decided to rebrand to Rebecca Marsala Flowers, mainly because I wanted to be the name behind the brand and for people to identify with my brand on a very personal basis.
Continuing to Bloom
Just like the flowers I work with, my business has grown and blossomed, transitioning from my early days as Gingerlily Flowers. My passion for the flower industry grows with every day and however many more years of experience I gain, every week presents new challenges and inspiration. I love learning new styles and trends and still attend courses to develop my skills and keep up with new techniques.
Why Choose Me?
I first felt at home with flowers when I was just 11 years old. My aunt, who had her own florist shop, was most certainly responsible and I knew from a very young age that this was the path I wanted to take. I began training at 16, working for a prestigious florist in Preston, Lancashire and have never looked back.
When you visit my studio, my gorgeous girls, Ricotta and Vespa (their names are a nod to my Italian surname!) may well greet you with wagging tails before you can step inside. The studio itself is full of flowers with fresh blooms arriving on a daily basis.
Offering flowers for weddings, funerals, celebration bouquets and corporate work, I use a vast selection of cut flowers and depending on our clients needs, may opt for romantic blousy blooms, seasonal favourites or vibrant exotics.
With an emphasis on luxury florals, flowers for my weddings are carefully selected from the best growers and suppliers from around the world, as a result this ensures the highest quality and most beautiful varieties.
Working with flowers for over 20 years, I have built an incredible knowledge of what is available and when. Probably the thing I most love about my job is the collaboration with my clients, as a result working together to create beautiful and unique designs that bring the wedding vision to life.
Whilst I’m very much the creative director and flower obsessive, I am lucky to have a highly skilled and very supportive team around me therefore ensuring each wedding runs smoothly and every detail is of the highest standard.
