Hi there, welcome to Sweetpea Macfie.
My name is Marie, and as a dedicated Wedding Florist my aim is simple; to turn your wedding flower dreams, into wedding day reality.
From my home studio in Chesterfield, I work in venues in the Peak District and across Derbyshire. I offer a truly bespoke service, from conception, right through to your big day you will only ever deal with me. This ensures everything, down to the last detail, is perfect for you on your Wedding Day.
The flowers I use capture nature and seasonality, and I adore using locally grown flowers in my designs. There is something really special about a bloom that is nurtured lovingly by a passionate grower. Embracing the UK growing season is key to everything I do and my brides love the idea that their bridal bouquet contains flowers grown just down the road.
Of course, flowers don’t grow all year round here, so during the winter months I do use flowers from further afield.
Kinder to the Planet
Using locally grown flowers, rather than ones that have been flown halfway around the world is of course a huge way to reduce the impact of floristry on our precious environment, but I also work hard to minimise the environmental impact of my work in other ways too. For example, instead of the traditional floral foam (Oasis), which takes many years to biodegrade in a landfill, I now use a wool alternative. I have reduced the amount of plastic I use, and have pared down my packaging.
Grab some Inspiration
The most exciting part of a wedding for me is presenting the bride with her bouquet on the big day, watching her face light up, it’s so special. Here you can take a look at just some of the wonderful wedding flowers I have created, together with reviews from the happy couples. Go to Real Wedding Gallery. There are also some of my own snap shots, to give you inspiration and ideas.
Marie is absolutely brilliant and I would 100% recommend her. Marie did all of my wedding flowers and they were perfect! From the relaxed initial meeting she helped reduce my stress levels and bring my ideas to life. Her expertise, knowledge and talent is amazing! Everything exceeded all of my expectations and the details were incredible! Thank you again Marie! You’re the best!
Marie did an awesome job of our wedding flowers. When we first met with her she helped us come up with some fun ideas and she was so enthusiastic and pleasant. I was really happy with what she produced. Bouquets and table decs looked brilliant.
Marie is fantastic. We honestly can’t recommend her highly enough. We planned our wedding within about 4 months and it was a low budget and very casual affair; flowers were low on the list! I had actually considered just buying flowers and DYI-ing a simple bouquet and button hole but I (thankfully) decided it was likely to be a false economy. I called Marie with about a month to go and with a small budget and she was just brilliant at working within our wants and needs. She cares so much about what she does and really wants it to be good for you, so I am pretty sure it would be impossible to have made a bad decision with Marie! Even last minute changes were made easy and everything was just super quality on the day. The best part is that Marie wasn’t afraid to keep things very simple — single stem hydrangeas for the bridal party and a bright carnation with asparagus leaf for the buttons. The stems were absolutely top quality too. Very fair pricing too, which is pretty important when you have so much going out! You can’t go wrong here – whatever you need and whatever end of the budget spectrum you are, Marie will sort you out.
Marie was our wedding florist. From our first consultation to the big day she was so attentive and completely understood what we wanted. The bouquets, button holes and table arrangement were stunning. I highly recommend Marie as she listens and advises but above all has amazing talent that would make any couple happy on their wedding day.
Well what can I say about Marie other than she is amazing. She provided all the flowers for our wedding on the 6th September and they were all gorgeous. Even 4 days later my bouquet looks stunning, the centrepieces were beautiful and our guests were honoured to be able to take them home. Marie worked with our design brief brilliantly and her advice around creating height in the room and framing the aisle were things we hadn’t even thought about but pulled everything together perfectly. I would definitely use Marie again. Thank you so much Marie for all your hard work.

We had the pleasure of having Marie do our flowers for our wedding back in April and we can’t recommend her enough! Marie was so helpful with deciding on the most perfect collection of flowers for our special day! Nothing was too much trouble and the flowers were absolutely stunning! They were exactly how I pictured them to be so bright and colourful! Marie’s attention to detail right down to the smallest of things is amazing! We would highly recommend Marie, she is truly talented and so caring when it comes to making you feel at ease especially if like us you don’t know anything about flowers! Thank you for everything and for putting up with us! Loads of love Jan & Phil xxxxx

What a talented florist Marie is. I have no hesitation in recommending her. Her service and attention to detail are second to none. The flowers arrived beautifully presented and stayed fresh and vibrant for the whole of the wedding day. There were many comments on how beautiful they were. Thank you Marie. You’re the best!

We chose SweetPeaMacfie as our wedding florist and I am so pleased we did as the flowers were absolutely incredible! I cannot recommend Marie highly enough. I requested a rather different and extravagant bridal bouquet, a wand-style made of 40 fresh roses with gem-encrusted features and dangling diamanté. Marie created something that was beyond my wildest dreams and I actually cried when I saw it on my wedding morning. All the other flowers were stunning and we received so many compliments on them throughout the day – one person actually didn’t believe my bouquet was made of real flowers because it was so beautifully perfect!
The price was extremely reasonable and Marie did not do the typical thing we all fear of hiking up the price just because it was a wedding. We had two detailed consultations and Marie was professional and so friendly throughout.
Thank you so much xx

I can’t recommend Marie enough! She was lovely to work with and her flowers were absolutely beautiful! Considering we never could quite describe what we wanted and kept changing our minds, she managed to absolutely nail it.
Thank you Marie! Xxx
