Amanda, July 2016

Hi Jillian and team

I apologise that it has taken me so long to send you this but I just wanted to thank so much for all so much for my beautiful wedding flowers on 15th July. Right from the start you made me feel comfortable and helped bring to life my vision, as well as giving me some great suggestions and ideas. I really enjoyed all my visits to your lovely shop. I wanted to say a special thank you for attaching the little picture of my mum to my bouquet it made things a little easier for me. We received so many lovely complements about the flowers and the table centrepieces. I have attached a few pictures so you can see all your hard work in action.

Thank you again.

Jill Scobbie, March 2016

Good morning, I just wanted to pass on our thanks for all the beautiful flower arrangements you ladies put together. The bouquets were perfect. I knew what we had discussed about the table flowers but didn’t have any idea in my head what they would look like, they were perfect, I loved everything about them. The tables looked great.
Thank you for all your help. We had a really lovely day.
Kind regards
Jill

Laura and Alasdair, August 2015,

Hey Paula & Jillian and the team at something special. 

Sorry we haven’t been in touch sooner, but the last month has flown by so quickly. We had an amazing time on honeymoon.Since then we have been kept busy with our new member of the Smith Family a mini Dachshund  puppy named Monty. My wedding gift from my husband. We want to say a Massive Massive thank you, for all your hard work  you put in to create the wedding off our dreams. The flowers were everything We had wished for and more. Everything was perfect from the Pew ends, to the Alter arrangements. The marquee looked stunning. All our guests were amazed by it all. On the day, Al and I took five minutest to ourself, so that we could see the Marquee, before any one else did. We were both in tears at how amazing it looked.

We just can’t thank you enough.

After the day the flowers were cherished for as long as we possibly could keep them. My Grandmother, was given the Alter arrangement which she very proudly gave to her local church. She felt it was so beautiful it had to be shared. My mum had the welcome arrangement in her dining room, I think every neighbour in the street was asked in to see it !

Every pew end and flower arrangement were used as gifts. Everyone was delighted by them. We completed a vows nomination.As you guys are Truly talented, your customer service is outstanding. To us your not just Something Special, your Simply the best. You exceeded every dream and expectation we had, and for that we are extremely Thankful. We loved the pictures you sent us, they were the first pictures we seen of the day.

Marc our photographer has captured some lovely ones of the flowers. One of my favourites is Paula giving me my bouquet.

Kelly Neil July 2015

Hi Jillian
Just wanted to say a massive thank you once again for my amazing wedding flowers.

From the initial consultation to the flowers on the day, your work was fantastic.

We had so many compliments especially for our centre pieces; was great seeing my vision becoming a reality.

In addition to the flowers, the fascinator you made for my mum was beautiful. Will definitely recommend your team to anyone requiring floral arrangements in the future.

Love Kelly (AKA the new Mrs Neil

Dear Jillian and all the team,

Just to say a huge THANK YOU for my beautiful bouquet on Saturday – it was absolutely perfect, and you could not have been more friendly or helpful when we called so close to time (having been let down suddenly) – cannot say enough how grateful I am and how much I loved it!!

Diana and James August 2015

Dear Morna, Jillian and the Team


We would like to thank you all so much for the magnificent arrangements of flowers that you dressed the Cathedral and Ballathie with last week at Diana and James wedding

.

The flowers were stunning and we really appreciate the amount of hard work it must have been for you all. We have had so many compliments about how wonderful they were.

Your huge effort contributed to making their wedding an extremely special day.

Diana and James are away on their honeymoon just now but I am sure they will be in touch when they get back.

I am sure you must all be exhausted after such a busy weekend. Many many thanks again, I will certainly be recommending you again.

Kindest Regards

Lorna and Sean August 2015

Hi Jillian, thank you again.

It did look absolutely beautiful, I will send you some photos when I have a little more time.

Still dashing about, only just managed to read all of our cards this afternoon!

We managed to have it outside!  They asked me to make the call around 12.30 and I was mid hair and makeup, so with encouragement from my bridesmaids, photographer and videographer I said outside!

It apparently drizzled a bit as our guests were taking their seats, so there are a few photos of them sitting with umbrellas. But when my Dad and I walked out the rain stopped! So we were very blessed.

It poured straight after so we had to get some soggy group and family pictures! And they did you justice with setting everything up on the lawn, it looked beautiful.

Valerie and Stuart July 2015

Dear Jillian,

Apologies for the very late message, we’ve been very busy since our wedding day!

We would like to warmly thank you for the absolutely beautiful wedding flowers that you have prepared for us. I was particularly extremely delighted with my bouquet, which received numerous compliments from guests but also other persons who have seen our pictures! Here attached are a few pictures from the wedding photographer. We wouldn’t have wanted any other flowers and we are definitely keen to use your services again if we happen to organise another celebratory event in Scotland and would also recommend you to anyone looking for a florist in the region. We wish you all the very very best.

With warm regards, Valérie and Stuart McCallum

Sarah May 2015

Hi Jillian and Team.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the absolutely beautiful flowers you did for my wedding on 18th April at Fernie Castle.  They were just perfect. I LOVED my bouquet, it was just the way I imagined – perfect size and colour.  The flowers for our mum’s were great, they matched perfectly and they both adored them.
I really enjoyed working with you.  You were so easy going and great from the very start.  I know how busy you must be with other brides and weddings, but I honestly felt I was the most important every time we spoke, which is just how it should be!
Thank you SO much again, I will defiantly be recommending you in the future.

Thanks again they really made our day extra special.

Hi Jillian, Paula, Morna and all the team,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help and hard work that you all put in for our 14th June wedding, from the big things to the small, and the last minute requests the chalk board and solving the last minute panic for three more buttonholes.( I need to phone up and still pay for those buttonholes -on my list for tmrw)  Just wanted to send some wee pictures involving flowers too of your work. I will have access to better pictures soon so will send you some if those too as well as a proper thank you card. Absolutely loved all our flowers they were beautiful, the bouquets , the Wellys, the table centres and the peony on the cake, the men’s buttonholes were lovely and rustic and manly enough , it was all just as I imagined it and so much more. The pinks were fab the peonies and roses beautiful . The chalk board was fab and way better than I could have dreamed. Even the groom commented” the flowers are gorgeous the girls at the florist don’t win awards for nothing do they? ” this is highest of praise from  a man who normally doesn’t notice any flowers!
Best wishes ladies

Gemma and Harvey of Highland Tipi’s,

Dear Jillian, Stephen and your team,

We would just like to say a huge thank you for creating such spectacular flowers for our wedding.  They were exactly what we hoped for and really helped to create the two different atmospheres that we wanted.

The ruscus around the poles and the bunches of gypsophila hanging between the lanterns were magical, simple and elegant.  Just what we wanted for our ceremony.  Whereas the explosions of winter foliage with accents ofpurple and Christmas were more fun and made a fantastic statement.  So many guests commented that the arrangements were just stunning.ted in our tipis.When discussing ideas and setting up on the day, you were always very relaxed and easy to deal with, clearly enjoying your work.   You listened to and enhanced our ideas and 100% made them come to life.

After our wedding, we were touched that you offered to take some of our flowers to a local charity for us, as it seems criminal to waste them.  Guests took some on to family graves and loved ones in hospital.  We also took some home, and carried on enjoying them well past Christmas!

We always knew we would choose Something Special Flowers for our wedding because we wanted quite informal flowers to match our tipis and had seen seen your work in them before.  We were absolutely delighted with what you created for us, thank you.

Wishing you continued success and happiness in the future,

Gemma and Harvey Robinson.

So thank you so much for listening and understanding what I wanted. I was wowed when I saw all of the displays. I hope you can managed to get onto dropbox to see and download the photos we have of the pictures.

I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for all your hard work in making the flowers for our wedding on the 21st so beautiful!!

They were much admired and I had numerous compliments on my bouquet. I loved it, it was so different to all the others I’ve seen.

We just had the most wonderful day and were so pleased with how it all went. My mum showed me your photo’s Stephen – they’re brilliant!

Hope the rush from the church to the castle wasn’t too stressful! I hope you are both well, and have a slightly quieter winter ahead, compared to your hectic summer.

Thanks again for all your help.

Lots of Love

To Stephen, Gillian and especially Morna!!! My wedding venue and every buttonhole, bouquet etc that you created for my wedding day was truly amazing.

When I walked in to my room and saw just how beautiful the tables looked I was lost for words…Morna you completely captured my vision and made it 1000 times better than I

could have wished for.

So looking forward to seeing the pictures you have taken.

You guys really are something special. I was totally blown away and I really can’t thank you enough. I felt like the luckiest girl alive on Saturday.

Please pass on my thanks for Morna’s ever so thoughtful card too.

Lucy’s Wedding, Dunkeld Cathedral and Ballathie House Hotel


Dear Ms Page,
Carol and I would just like to say how absolutely delighted we were with the flowers for Lucys wedding. The quality of the flowers, the freshness, the professional way that they were made up and the fact that all the deliveries and movements went according to plan. Several people who came to the Cathedral or the Hotel just gasped; they were absolutely stunned with the impact of them.

One of our guests at the wedding purchases and arranges the flowers on a regular basis at Holyrood Palace. She was most impressed with your work and expressed that the value was exceptionally good.Our relations and ourselves are still enjoying the fragrance and sight of these bunches in our homes which bring back happy memories. We certainly recommend your company to others and just wish that we lived nearer to Blairgowrie.

With kindest regards,

 

Yours Sincerely,
A Stuart Woyka

             Thank you for the most amazing flowers on our wedding day. They were perfect!

 

 

 

 

 

Jillian and her team were amazing in the lead up to my wedding. I asked them to make my flowers bright and funky, and left them to be inspired! My fiance and I had travelled extensively through South East Asia and Jillian decided to use tropical flowers from the countries we had visited. My wedding flowers were out of this world. They were bright, tropical, funky and fun. There were spirals and wire shooting out of the bouquet and the colours Jillian used were beautiful. I cannot express how much Jillians flowers blew away any expectations I had… they could not have been more perfect! If anyone deserves this award Jillian and her team most definitely do.” – Fiona

The flowers were FANTASTIC!

Thank you so much for being part of our fairytail wedding. All the best. Kind regards,

Lisa Wilson

Hi
We did two online nominations for Something Special Flowers in Blairgowrie for their fabulous service for our wedding which took place on 20th August 2014 at Hilton Dunkeld stone grotto.  They were so fantastic to us even though it was only a private, secret wedding for bride/groom and two witnesses and treated us as if we were asking them to provide flowers for a huge and extravagant wedding. In fact they treated us like best friends from the minute we walked into the shop and we felt we could wholeheartedly put our trust in them.  We were so impressed they interpreted exactly what we wanted, so much so it seemed like Morna was inside my head.  They went the extra mile for us by including flowers from our own garden even though they didn’t know what kind of condition they would be in when we delivered them the day before the wedding. Even though I said it wouldn’t matter if they didn’t look right and could be left out I was delighted they managed to not only put some in my bouquet but also in the floral arrangements.  Absolutely gorgeous. They also transformed the stone grotto where we married into a truly magical place by also placing twinkling tealights in the nooks and crannies which took my breath away when I arrived to join my hubby to be.
