First, give me an idea of the style of your dress, your themes and your venue, then together we’ll design wedding flowers exclusively for you, tailored to fit your personality, location and dreams.
WEDDINGS
I believe in sympathy with empathy, funerals are your last chance to say goodbye. Having lost three dear ones within six months of each other, I can truly appreciate how awful it is to experience that loss. Every sympathy tribute I create has those feelings deeply embedded in it, allowing me to produce arrangements that really say what you feel in a beautiful way.
FUNERALS
If you have a special event coming up where you require architectural floral designs or table centres that are out of this world, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We here at Magnificent Bouquets can accomodate for any occcasion.

ABOUT US

Hi, I'm Jo Hammonds!

I've been a professional florist since 1999, but really my passion for flowers started when my anosmic grandfather couldn't smell the roses. He lost his sense of smell due to a childhood bout of smallpox. My earliest memories are from when he would hold my hand, to walk with me round his exquisite rose garden, encouraging me to bury my nose in the most colourful blooms, saying "Smell this one! Can you describe the scent? Does it smell as beautiful as it looks?" To this day I remember those roses, the vivid colours, the glorious smells. He always smiled at my replies.

It was the start of my magical journey with flowers.

Art meets flowers

As an arty girl, I studied design and textiles then worked as a freelance designer, until hearing a radio advert for a floristry course led me to work with flowers. I'm eternally grateful to the inspiring college tutors who encouraged me to blossom. During my course I spent an enchanted week on placement at the legendary Jane Packer London store. Her serene shop fascinated me, with its manically bustling workshop beneath, and the elegantly styled arrangements took my breath away. That's when I knew I wanted to create striking, original floral designs.


I love my work with flowers!

Every bit of it! From meeting people, discussing ideas, creating designs that bring dreams to life, seeing venues, getting excited! Then there's rising early (when only foxes are awake!) to go to the wholesaler, walking round vibrant colour-coded banks of flowers at the flower market, bringing blooms back to prepare… and then the actual production of the floral design! The moment when I see my Bride's reaction to her flowers, is the most uplifting of all!

Read More/Less
" Flowers at an event should have a sense of balance and rhythm. A natural flow and harmony connecting all the arrangements, making you want to look and keep on looking. It’s about creating a series of sensational moments to surprise and delight guests as they move through your venue – whether it’s a castle, church, hotel, marquee, garden or favourite restaurant."
