We Love Weddings



Jack and Cara Isles 

Hi, Jillian We just wanted to send you a message to say the biggest thank you ever for doing our wedding flowers.

You were a dream to work with from start to finish and truly made our vision for the wedding come to life. From the bouquets, to the buttonholes, the tables, the back drop to our top table and everything in between - it was absolutely perfect!

You are not only such a lovely person but you are incredibly talented. We cannot say thank you enough.

I will send a link with pictures of your masterpieces on the big day!

All the best Cara & Jack




Dawn and Jack Mace, November 2021


We cannot recommend Jillian and her team enough for your wedding day! We had planned to have our ceremony outdoors but the weather was against us in the morning. Jillian and her husband completely kitted our venue out totally last minute and made it absolutely beautiful! She even fixed my dress and shawl before I headed inside and did a great job of de stressing me ?? an added bonus! Myself and my bridesmaids bouquets were absolutely beautiful too, I’ve included pictures below. She was so helpful through the entire planning process and we cannot fault her at all. Thank you so much something special!

We had Something Special Flowers provide bouquets and decor for our wedding at Cardney Steading last month and boy did they deliver.

Jillian was amazing during our calls and just got me and the whole look, feel and colours we were visualising.

The venue styling was stunning with guests commenting that it looked like their perfect Pinterest wedding. Jillian was also very honest when some of my ideas wouldn't really work and suggested ways to reuse items for the reception room instead of buying double which, to me, shows the signs of an excellent supplier.

They also overcame an extra challenge on the day with no power at venue due to Storm Arwen and were one of our superb team of suppliers who all worked together to make sure we could have our special day. Highly recommend the team. Thank you for everything. x

Hi Jillian,

I hope you are well and have had a good summer since we last spoke before my wedding in early June. I just wanted to say a huge thank-you once again for all of your hard work on the flowers. I was especially appreciative of the time you gave to capture what I had in mind - you absolutely nailed it! I thought the room, the bouquets and buttonholes were fabulous - having the option to have you transport them to the venue then to the restaurant was also ideal. The registrar said that she'd never known anyone to have flowers for that room before but was so impressed by how good it looked in comparison to normal. I can't really thank-you enough. Your work is excellent but I was just so impressed with how detailed you were with your knowledge but also your warm and kind approach (particularly welcome when arranging a wedding in covid). I also love that you did the flowers for both me and my sister - just 10 years apart! We've had lots of compliments on the flowers from the photos of the day - I've attached the ones our photographer took in case you'd like to use on your website.

Huge thanks again!








Hayleigh and Mark, Cardney Steadings November 2020


Outstanding job something special flowers, Jillian you were a joy to work with from start to finish ....couldn’t recommend you enough, thanks again for guiding us in making the perfect choices for mark and Hayleigh’s wedding day xx


Just amazing.

 Thank you so much!!!



Yasmin and Chris, Murthly Casle, June 2019

Hi Gillian,

WOW, what else can I say about the flowers at Yasmin’s wedding on Saturday! They were absolutely stunning, I am beyond delighted with all the floral arrangements, marquee decoration and especially the flower arch, it was incredible and so greatly admired. You have been a total joy to work with, from our first meeting to the big day you have interpreted Yasmin’s wedding vision in the most beautiful way. We totally trusted that you would do a fantastic job but you went beyond our expectations and for that I am truly thankful. The bridal party bouquets were just stunning and the glass bouquet holders on the top table were such a special touch. Our family and close friends were delighted to receive some of the table arrangements and are enjoying a little taste of the wedding in their homes this week, the scent from some of the roses is just amazing, my house smells divine! Thomas delivered some to the local care home and also managed to use some of the large ones in the Chapel for a recital on Sunday so we feel we have managed to extend the enjoyment of the flowers for a little while longer.

Thank you for making Yasmin’s day so very special, our guests had a very memorable weekend in every way.

With very best wishes

Hi Jillian and the Something Special Flowers Team!

I just wanted to send you a wee note to say a huge THANK YOU for the most incredible and beautiful flowers I have ever seen! Every single detail you put together for our wedding was completely perfect. Everyone at the wedding was commenting on how stunning the flowers were.

I’ve attached a photo below of my favourite of our wedding photos we’ve seen so far - that flower arch is absolutely sensational!

Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special.

Lots of love

Hi Jillian and the Something Special Flowers Team!

Jillian, you and the team did the most AMAZING job! I can’t thank you enough !!


The flowers and candles were exquisite and made the place look so wonderful.

Thank you, thank you, thank you xx

Gillian and John, Creiff Hydro, September 2018

Jillian and her team did my wedding flowers, decorations and button holes for our wedding at Crieff Hydro a few weeks ago. What an absolutely amazing job you did, we can’t thank you enough for everything. I had met Jillian at a couple of wedding fayres and immediately loved what she did. Her friendliness and enthusiasm shines through and she is a pleasure to work with. I had quite a few of my own ideas/items that I wanted incorporated into the decor which was very much embraced by Jillian. Everybody commented on how fab the decor was and it was truly amazing to see months and months of ideas come together just perfectly. I loved my bouquet so much that I didn’t want to put it down at all during the day!!!!!Thank you so very much, highly recommended xx

Stacey and David, The Sun Dancer, Nairn, September 2018

I cannot recommend Jillian and her wee team enough. 5 stars doesn’t seem enough! They did all my wedding decor, bouquet,button holes etc. From first meeting to discuss flowers I knew Jillian was really special, the attention to detail and knowledge she shared was outstanding. On the day I was beyond happy with how it all looked. Every little detail had been thought of and the place was stunning. Everyone commented how beautiful it was and my venue manager even said he had never seen so much detail and such a perfectionist! If you are in need of a florist look no where else. Something special flowers is the best there is xxx

Clare and David. Fingask Castle, August 2018

Dear the Something Special Team,

It’s all been a bit hectic since the wedding but I’ve found a moment to stop and thank you for all of your amazing hard work with our wedding. I was beyond impressed with the flower arrangements you created. When the bouquets were brought up, they were better than I ever could have imagined. The bouquets were absolutely gorgeous; the hoops and centre pieces in the venue were perfect and I felt that somehow, you managed to reflect our personalities in the atmosphere they created. Our guests were full of praise for them and I’ve lost count of the number of people who have asked who did our flowers. On top of all that, you’ve all been super friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. I really can’t thank you enough. I’ve attached a few of our professional photos from our previews; please feel free to share these on your social media accounts.

You might need them as a reference, as David has promised to get me flowers just as lovely every year for our anniversary.

Many thanks,
Clare and David Reilly

Steph & Mark Farmer, The Old Course Hotel, St Andrews. June 2018

Good Afternoon Jillian and team,

I am just getting in touch to say thank you SO SO much from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us on our wedding day!

I honestly couldn't believe the venue when i saw it!!! Those absolutely stunning centre pieces were exactly what i had in mind, and the orchids just finished them off beautifully! The top table was just out of this World too, so much hard work and patience must have went into the whole day and Mark and I cannot thank you all enough for what you created for us! The bridal party bouquets were stunning too, as were all the button holes! I have never seen so much attention to detail, from the table where we signed the register, to the wee cake table, to the rose petal scattering and the decorated stair case as you walked into the conservatory... you really did bring a tear to my eye!!! The flowers really were the most important thing to me on the day, and you just blew me away with what you created for us. I can't thank you all enough for all your efforts!!! Also- the separate flowers you provided for our hair.... I used two orchids and the bridesmaids used the roses and it just brought it all together!We received compliments ALL day about the floral arrangements and the decor, and how beautiful it made our venue, so we praised Something Special all day!! Each of the centre pieces found a loving home at the end of the night, and the 3 bouquets were placed on some precious gravestones. Anways, the next time Mark and I are passing, we will be sure to drop past the shop to thank you all in person. Thank you SO SO much again Jillian, you and your team are absolutely outstanding and you have a fantastic business, and I wish you further success in the future!

Warm Regards
Stephanie and Mark Farmer

Jillian, thank you for your absolutely wonderful work! I couldn’t imagine more lovely flower arrangements than yours. And it was more than wonderful meeting you in person.

Your warm and openhearted being made us feel welcome and that’s what showed me once more the reason why I love this country and it’s people so much!

Bobby Evans-Beatson, Atholl Palace, March 2017

Jillian me and my mum took flowers that my husband had sent me over years and other flowers I liked and put together the most truly amazing flower displays for our wedding! The attention to detail was incredible!

Nothing was too much for the team. All my guests said our wedding flowers where the nicest that they had ever seen. The whole team are so nice, they work so hard and put you at ease! Thank you for making my dreams a reality and for making the wedding bouquet of all wedding bouquet’s!

Amanda, Forbes of Kingennie, 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,

Dear Jillian,

Thank you so much for the stunning flowers that you did for my wedding on the 9th of April. They were so beautiful and I wish I could keep them forever. It was a wonderful day and little details like the flowers really made it for me. I don’t have any of the professional photos yet but thought you might like these.

Many thanks,

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

Lizzy Robb September 2015

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, Ballathie, 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 Regard

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

Claire and Matt June 2015

Dear Paula

I know Claire will be in touch once she gets back from Skye but I just wanted to say a personal thank you for all lovely flower arrangements you created for us on Saturday. They were all superb and the Ballathie looked lovely.

The day was just perfect and we all have amazing photos and memories. Thanks once again

Emma and Craig May 2015


I just wanted to say a huge thank you, the flowers were absolutely beautiful! They were even more stunning than I could have imagined and just really made the venue look fantastic! We got so many comments from people about them too.

I’m sure you said you were collecting the jars, crates etc from the venue, we left them all in the stables area if you have any issues leg me know.

Thanks again they really made our day extra special.

Thanks, Emma

Susan and Alasdair July 2014

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, Susan

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 of purple 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.

Gemma and Harvey Robinson.

Dear Jillian and Stephen,

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. Massive thanks and I will never stop recommending you guys.

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 Lucy's 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.

Yours Sincerely,
A Stuart Woyka

Tom and Tina

Dear Jillan,

Tom and I just wanted to say thank you for our beautiful flowers. They were above our expectations and everyone commented on how amazing they were. We were extremely impressed with your professionalism and flexibility. We have no hesitation in recommending Something Special. Thank you again. I have attached a copy of a photo for you.


Amanda and Andy

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.


The flowers were FANTASTIC!

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

Lisa Wilson

Julie Jarvis (formerly Millman)

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.
