Derbyshire Florist Darling Buds.

Liz Hall launched Darling Buds Florist in 1998 and soon built a team of very experienced florists around her who have been creating unforgettable floral solutions for weddings and contract work from the Baslow shop ever since.

The florist is located in Baslow on the Chesterfield to Manchester road not far from Chatsworth House and the market town of Bakewell. With car parking available with kind permission at The Wheatsheaf Pub opposite the shop, it’s easy to pop in and have a bouquet that is truly unique and personal to you made up while you wait, or, if you are in a hurry, phone ahead your order on 01246 583 999

Our flowers and plants are bought direct from Holland where the worlds leading floral auctions are held thereby ensuring that quality is first and foremost. The benefit to Darling Buds customers is that the stock is constantly changing as the shop will only buy what is exceptionally good each week.

Darling Buds Flowers for Weddings

Darling Buds have earned a justifiable reputation as the Peak District’s leading creative florist by producing stunning floral arrangements for literally hundreds of weddings both large and small throughout Derbyshire and beyond. If you are planning your wedding or civil ceremony then the first thing to do is check availability for your special day.


Hire of Vases and Accessories

Having worked in all of the best hotels and wedding venues in The Peak District, Darling Buds has built up an enviable knowledge of each and every venue.

Knowing what works well at Hassop Hall may not be the same as Baslow Hall or Losehill House Hotel, that’s where a trusted and creative pair of hands will take all of the worries out of your special day.

Over the years the shop has built up a great selection of vases, candelabras, pedestals and a whole host of other wedding accessories that are available for your special day.
