- Hello! As we mentioned, we're twin sisters, who live in Scotland. We set up our small wedding flower and props business after Jess (the younger twin) got married in July 2017. While we were planning her wedding we found it really difficult to source cool props as well as sflowers in Scotland from one company - meaning we had to get lots of different things from lots of different suppliers. While we're all about sharing the love, we're also all about an easy life - which lead to the creation of Lavender and Rose. Your one stop wedding styling shop. We've sourced some beautiful antique props, as well as making our own more modern Scandi-style stuff, so that we can offer something up for any wedding theme. We're also busy building beautiful wooden trestle tables, copper arches and more this spring, so whatever you're dreaming of we are hopeful we can make it happen. Because we have props and flowers covered we can create gorgeous arrangements spilling out of hampers, crates and champagne buckets without worrying about damaging anything, or can put together amazing installation style pieces that hang from our ladders or over the top of our candelabras. We also love anything Scottish, so we try out best to use local suppliers when we can. We can source home-grown flowers for you big day, if that's your thing, for a gorgeous wild look. If you're keen to throw a little more Scottish love in the mix we also have a directory on our website of other fab Scottish suppliers we love - from stationary to food trucks. Take a peek if you have time! Because we're relatively new to the wedding scene we have a couple of prime summer dates available, and with no minimum spend required we can work to your brief - no matter what the budget. We hope you like what we do, we love doing it. If you have any questions at all please feel free to give us a little message and we'll get back to you just as soon as possible. If you've got this far, thanks for reading! Rosie and Jess XX

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, delicate, chic, fun and personalised!
What about your business are you most proud of?
We love that we can offer our couples their complete look, and like to think we always go that extra mile so that everything is perfect - even those tiny tiny details that hardly anyone might notice. We know it's the little things that add up to the big things.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Learn how to use Excel! It's boring as hell but boy does it help you budget.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We love it when couples write their own vows, we're suckers for a good love story.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After we know the date, place and time of the wedding, as a first step we usually ask couples to send us their Pinterest boards, or even a few pictures of the 'look' they want for their wedding. Then, working from this, we build them a mood board that reflects their personal style. This includes loads of pictures, broken down by each section, and approximate costings. There's sometimes a bit of back and forth where couples will add extra bits they've found in the meantime, and then we send over a formal quote so they can get an idea of cost. Once they're all happy with that we book them in!
What is the most interesting thing you have put in a bouquet?
Oh, tough question! We actually really like different textures - so things like feathers and cotton flower heads we love.
Is there a flower that has specific symbolism that you would recommend for brides?
Loving these questions. We love Lily of the Valley. It's so delicate and pretty, and it means 'the return of happiness' - perfect for the coming together of two best pals.
What is the most romantic flower and why?
It has to be a rose, doesn't it? It's so classic. It's mentioned by the big man Shakespeare himself after all. For us garden roses, like the David Austen varieties, are the queen of all flowers. Beautifully scented and made up of about 1000 ruffled petals, they couldn't get prettier if they tried.
What should you do with the flowers after the wedding?
Honestly, you guys should be journalists. So, we always try and arrange our flowers so that they last. Because of this lots of our arrangements are in water-soaked floral foam. These little beauties come in trays which means they can be lifted right out and taken home by guests - the ultimate party bag. We can also offer our arrangements in take-home vases or vessels for an extra cost. Lots of brides forget about their bouquet once the partying starts (and rightly so!) but it's a good idea to put a bridesmaid in charge of sticking it in some water, that way it'll last for the days afterwards as a lovely reminder of your wedding. Sorry, we're going on a bit here, but we've also recently discovered flower hammering, which we're keen to try with some of our bouquets. You basically hammer the flowers onto absorbent paper and it leaves a faint trace of the colour and shape. How gorgeous would that be to frame as a keepsake? There are of course companies who specialise in bouquet preservation or painting - and we can advise on those if you'd like.
