Testimonials

But don't just take my word for it! Here are some kind words from some of the lovely couples I've already had the honour of working with:

From the moment I saw the name Heavy Petal, I knew this was the florist I was looking for - bold, vibrant and with an alternative twist, Jo has a unique and creative vision that she injects into all her arrangements.
We were blown away by all the flowers on the day - she delivered exactly what we wanted in terms of the warm and stand-out colours on our cold Autumnal wedding day. It gave just the wild and vintage look I was hoping for, coupled with beautiful accessories like the antique vases and tree slices that she used to bring out the theme.
A true professional - she has been helpful and friendly throughout, with a detailed briefing process to ensure she understood what we wanted. She offered expert opinion and advice along the way but we trusted her entirely to apply her creative licence! Highly recommend Jo!

Where to start...Jo is an absolute pro and her passion for her work is evident the moment you meet / speak. It’s fair to say I spent a huge amount of time researching florists - from London to Devon, Midlands to Cambridgeshire/Herts. Jo’s portfolio of designs instantly grabbed my attention - showing huge personality, creativity, individuality and, importantly, all the love that had gone in. Throughout initial conversations & the briefing process Jo quickly understood my vision and used her expertise and experience to nurture and develop ideas, paying close attention to my likes, dislikes and aspirations. Right from the start I felt comfortable and confident of Jo’s skills and dedication. She spent a great deal of time throughout the process helping me work out exactly what quantities I needed to achieve the look I wanted and was considered, thoughtful and transparent when it came to sticking to the budget! Ultimately the end result was more than I could have ever hoped for. Flowers can add so much to a wedding and helped create the most gorgeous atmosphere. My bouquet was simply stunning, along with everything else. A huge amount of prep work and set up went in and the quality of the flowers were fantastic - I had family fly them home to N.Ireland (!) after the wedding & they still lasted over a week! ... I couldn’t have asked for more - I loved working with Jo and would highly recommend her to anyone. xxx

I just wanted to say thank you so much for making our bouquets look so amazing and also unique. The table pieces were fab and fitted in perfectly with the barn. We had no idea about flowers when we first met you, but you still seemed to know and create exactly what we wanted! We couldn’t recommend Jo and Heavy Petal enough.
— Jo & Stuart, Royston, Herts
My wedding flowers were absolutely amazing. Jo is a fantastic florist, everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful the flowers were. We had absolutely no idea what kind of flowers we wanted when we met Jo for our consultation, she guided us through the process of choosing them then went away and created beautiful bouquets, button holes, corsages, table flowers and flower baskets for the mums.

Jo was very knowledgeable and super friendly. She really put me at ease during a pretty stressful time. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
— Naomi & Kevin, St Albans, Herts
Jo is absolutely brilliant, she gave me stunning wedding flowers that all my guests commented on! I had no idea what I wanted from my wedding flowers other than I wanted purple and natural looking arrangements. Jo sat with me and a handful of magazines for ideas and came up with exactly what I didn’t know I wanted! The bouquets, button holes and table flowers were amazing and a pair of large milk churn arrangements gave the aisle the perfect romantic wedding look I wanted. On top of all that Jo provided some beautiful flower baskets for the Mothers! Could not have asked for more! Would definitely recommend! X
— Nicki & Tim, Potters Bar, Herts
The flowers were stunning and the amount of flowers used were very generous. Jo’s flowers transformed the venue and made the wedding experience magical.
— Claire & Jim, Royston, Herts
Thank you so much for providing the beautiful flowers for our wedding! They couldn’t have been more perfect and we had so many comments on them! I will definitely be recommending you to friends!
— Rachel & Alistair, Royston, Herts
Jo, thank you so much once again for creating the most beautiful arrangements for our wedding in November. We loved the gorgeous deep autumnal colours which really stood out on the Groomsmans’ outfits and the bridesmaids bouquets were so stylish and different. I know my request for an orchid hair piece and corsage was a little unusual for a bride but you were so enthusiastic and accommodating and created something really special for me, which meant a huge amount. I felt truly unique! Plus the flowers lasted for AGES so our flat was filled with beautiful colours and memories for weeks after our wedding day! Wish we could go through the process all over again! xxx
— Venetia & Chris, Crouch End, London
Just to say again a HUUUUGE THANK YOU!! The wedding flowers were just absolutely stunning. You are a creative genius and followed the brief exactly and even beyond what I could have imagined. It was all so perfect and looked amazing with the decor. Thank you for working so tirelessly. So many people commented on how beautiful the flowers were and I’m happy that friends and family got some to take away and enjoy for a while longer. I’m so sad they will eventually die but the memories and the photos will of course remain.
— Natalie & Paul, Streatham, London
Jo.. you have managed to put together from a few muddled photos and some ramblings from me exactly what I wanted. I was stunned when I saw my bouquet and completely lost for words when I got to see what a wonderful job you had done on the tables. I can’t thank you enough. You have been wonderful to talk to, you are very sweet and your work is outstanding. Well done Jo! xx
— Sharon & Carl, Bassingbourne, Cambs
Thank you so much Jo for the beautiful bouquet and floral decorations. Flowers were outstanding, you managed to create magic. They smelled gorgeous & the hydrangeas lasted for nearly a month after the wedding. Our guests commented on how beautiful flowers were. Top marks from us and again thank you.
— Jana & Gary, Royston, Herts
Jo provided a very professional and friendly service. She worked with us to really understand what we wanted and her lovely ideas were beautifully executed. They were truly stunning flowers, which worked so well at our wonderful winter wedding. Everyone commented how lovely the flowers were and we got to enjoy them long after the wedding through Christmas and New Year.
— Sophie & James, London
The flowers at my wedding were perfect. Jo pulled out all the stops to ensure each display was as beautiful as the next. Her enthusiasm, talent and genuine passion shone through in our flowers. I am so very grateful.
— Kate & Matt, Hampshire
Jo truly made my ideas come to life and she made the whole process incredibly smooth for me. Taking her inspiration from my venue which was a farm in Somerset, Jo created the most perfect flowers for my wedding day fusing vintage tones with a natural countryside style.
— Nina & Frank, London
I am writing to say how pleased the family were with the flowers, they were beautiful, elegant and fitting for the occasion. They were just perfect.
