- Emma and Harry - Minchinghampton church and marque
We wanted to say a huge thankyou for the absolutely stunning flowers you provided for our wedding. I remember getting emotional when I first saw them as they were so perfect and exactly what we were hoping for. The floral arch was out of this world and all of the other little details at the venue were amazing. You were so wonderful to work with every step of the way and we cannot thankyou enough for helping make our day so special.
- Rosie and James - Hyde House
Thankyou so much for brightening our big day with your spectacular floral arrangements. From the bouquets and the buttonholes to the table centrepieces, each arrangement was meticulously put together to complement our colour scheme and the entire venue.
You completely understood exactly what we were looking for and helped bring all our ideas to life. Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were. It was a pleasure working with you, and we thankyou for your help in making our wedding day so special.

Thankyou Jo so much for arranging the flowers for our wedding - they were so beautiful and exactly what we envisaged (and more)!
All our guests commented on how amazing they looked, both at the church and The Barn at Upcote, they really made the day for us.
You and your team are so talented and we cannot thank you enough.
- Charlotte & Mark - The Barn at Upcote
Thankyou for the most stunning wedding flowers that you did for our wedding. They were beautiful and we wish we could have kept them forever!

You truly are talented in what you do.
- Sophie & Chris - The Barn at Upcote

- Hannah & Sam - Hyde House
A huge thankyou to you and your very talented team for the exquisite flowers at our daughter's wedding, they really were stunning, so many compliments about them which you didn't get to hear unfortunately, so I'm passing those on!
We were happy to have you as part of our memories on one the most special and important days in our live's...we'll always remember you and your truly beautiful flowers.
- mother of the bride for Sarah & Johnny - Lapstone Barn
Just a note to say thankyou so much for the incredible flowers you did for us for our wedding. Both the church and Lapstone Barn looked sensational and the bouquets were just perfect. You made the whole process to easy for us and knew exactly what we were after as soon as we spoke. We had such a fantastic day and made memories to last a lifetime. Thankyou so much again and when we eventually move to The Cotswolds in a few years and you need a hand with weddings I'll be there like a shot!
- Rachel & Alan - Lapstone Barn
Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for filling our wedding with beautiful flowers. They were everything we dreamed of and more. Thankyou for also being an amazing support throughout Covid. You're such a lovely, friendly and creative florist and we're so happy we chose you, we can never thankyou enough.
- Natalie, Rahim & Bertie the Golden Retriever - Lapstone Barn
Our consultation was so relaxed and unpressured that we felt at ease from the get go, and organising a wedding from London meant it was then easy to do the rest on the phone and online with complete trust.
I could talk about how the designs were beautiful, but you can see that for yourself in the pictures, instead I’ll let you know what sets her apart from the other people I spoke with.
Jo completely got my vision for a natural foliage focus with a classy twist rather than the rustic one which has been the trend recently.
Jo knows the troubles people have while planning a wedding and she was able to suggest arrangements which could be moved into different positions in different rooms through the day which meant we could help keep our costs down. I felt it was these thoughtful ideas which were the difference Jo brought as not everyone would be so considerate.
I would 100% recommend Jo to anyone looking for a florist for a wedding.
When it comes to wedding flowers the thoughts of ‘I could do it myself’ and ‘no one notices them anyway’ go through your head but you should absolutely not let those thoughts develop.
Sure you can do it yourself. But do you want to spend the few days before ordering flowers, making sure they come in on time and in the right amount of open, and making up designs with your bridal party till 5am the night before when you should be having a manicure?
Sure no one will probably remember your decorations other than you, but they sure will notice if the room is bare. The flowers help create an ambiance, softening harsh architecture or cold stone and setting a tone for the day.
- Kathryn and Henry, Lapstone Barn
Jo and her team at Aqua Florists are brilliant - I really can’t recommend them enough. Jo did the flowers our wedding in August and was one of our favourite suppliers. From start to finish Jo was creative, flexible and professional. She went the extra mile to make things perfect on the day, arranging flowers at the venue and the church for us. She stuck within the budget we gave her and gave suggestions as to how we’d make the most from our money. I loved how she worked with the venue, using flowers creatively to highlight different features of the venue such as the archway, the garden and the marquee. The huge flower rings in the marquee were spectacular and gave the wedding breakfast a really fun, banquet style feel! I particularly appreciated how Jo would send mock ups of what the flowers could look like with suggested vase and candle table decorations so we could visualize how it would look on the day. Thank you so much Jo and team for making our day so special and truly unforgettable!
- Emma & David – Cheltenham
Just wanted to say a huge Thank you to Jo, Aqua Flowers.
Jo was amazing with what she achieved for Lizzie & Adam’s wedding. Cripps Barn 25/06/2019
She was so professional even though I kept moving the goalposts. Jo is confident and competent she definitely knows her flowers.
A pleasure to have met and shared our very special day with us.
- Lizzie & Adam – Cripps Barn
Jo was absolutely fantastic from start to finish with planning the flowers for our wedding, she was always really responsive when I asked all my questions which were lots lol & so helpful, and then on the day well just wow she made my dream come to life & it all looked absolutely beatiful , I would recommend massively.
-Lauren & Phil – The Manor Hotel
Just wanted to reiterate my thanks for our wedding flowers - they were absolutely beautiful. I was completely blown away when I came down and saw them all set up on the tables - the colours were stunning. I loved my bouquet (as did my bridesmaids) and the flowers in the stone barn were beautiful. I’d never seen peonies like that before and they carried on opening throughout the day which was incredible.
- Emma & Charlie – Lapstone Barn
A Formal thank you and reviews will come in due course but we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for our beautiful flowers. They were more perfect than we ever dared dream. So many of our guests were blown away by them and we were all left speechless when we first saw them. We have just got home and are sat surrounded by beautiful boxes, arrangements and bouquets which is allowing the memory of our day to live on just a little bit longer.
Thank you again,
- Chelsea and Justin, Cripps Barn
Jo and her team did our wedding flowers back in September (I'm so bad at leaving reviews - better late than never!). My flowers were so important to me and from the get go Jo just knew exactly what we wanted, and was so helpful in explaining everything, from which of my ideas would work and what wouldn't and what we could do to make it work! We travelled 1.5 hours to see Jo as we didn't live nearby which made me nervous at first but each appointment we were made to feel comfortable and so excited. On our wedding morning, the moment Jo brought my flowers in the room I just came out in tears! How sad! They exceeded my expectations and when I saw the wedding breakfast room set up - wow! I literally couldn't have pictured it any better. The team are just amazing. Not only that but she was there early, helped set up our whole room (as well as all the other bits and bobs we had from her) and is just so kind natured I can't speak highly enough of her. She even popped my late grandad's photo into my bouquet which was the icing on the cake ♥️ I could say so much more but I just want people to know that if they're looking for their perfect wedding florist but haven't yet decided then you should definitely speak to AQUA!! Thanks again Jo :-)
- Mr and Mrs Evans - Hyde Barn
Aqua Wedding Flowers provided the most beautiful bouquets and flower displays for our wedding.
We first met Jo at a wedding fair at our venue. Her floral displays and enthusiasm immediately attracted us, and we decided she was the florist for us. Communication was easy, and we arranged an initial meeting with Jo at her workshop. I had screenshotted a large selection of flowers I wanted to include in my bouquet and had a fairly good idea of my colour schemes. Jo was brilliant ...and told us which flowers and colours would go well together for a summer wedding. She showed us examples of flower displays she had previously done and helped us to select the extra decoration for the center-pieces, the aisle and outside of the venue. On the day of the wedding, Jo was already at the venue setting up the floral displays in the barn. The bouquets, button-holes and center pieces were all as we envisaged and made for beautiful photos. We have received so many comments about the colours and mixture of beautiful flowers. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and talented florist with a keen eye for details and flair, then I would definitely recommend Aqua Wedding Flowers. Thank you so much for providing us with such beautiful flowers for our wedding day.
- Abbi Louise - The Barn at Upcote
Jo's studio is a wonderful gem, full of lovely things to grace a wedding table, and also full of the most beautiful flowers and scents. My first visit coincided with a delivery of roses, which completely covered the floor space - shades of dusky pinks and ivories. I fell in love immediately, and our Memory Lane roses, are now part of our special day memories. Jo was lovely to work with, full of wonderful ideas, and she created the most beautiful wedding bouquet that I have ever seen. And it was mine! Our Wedding Day Duck Race (organised by Aqua Flowers) was huge fun, and our guests loved it. The flowers for our ceremony, and wedding breakfast were amazing, and many of our guests were able to go home the next day with a little hand-tied posy as a memento of our wonderful wedding day. I really couldn't recommend Aqua Flowers more highly. Thankyou Jo!
- Sarah Dearlove - The Swan Bibury
Jo was one of the florists recommended by our wedding venue and I was not disappointed. When I saw her work I was completely blown away, I’ve always loved flowers but I’d never seen arrangements as beautiful and bespoke as these. The way she hand selected the most beautiful colour palettes and took in to account my dress and the theme I was trying to achieve was just amazing. Even meeting up with Jo at Manor Farm was a treat, such an authentic setting surrounded by all the gorgeous extras that she provides; the gorgeous log table plan, cute wedding signs and everything you need to achieve a gorgeous rustic table arrangement. Everything about Jo and the setting was warm and inviting and her approach surprisingly calm despite the pressure on her to deliver. This calm approach continued on the morning of the wedding and I will not forget my first look at the stunning bouquets for myself, five bridesmaids and my flower girl; love at first sight! They are without a doubt the first thing my eye is drawn to in my wedding photos and I am so glad that I chose Jo!
- Kimberley Jessica - The Barn at Upcote
I got married at The Cripps Barn on 28th August 2018. We hired Jo to do our flowers and she was absolutely amazing. She delivered our bridal flowers to our hotel on time and did the decorative flowers at the venue. Fantastic service. Thank you Aqua Flowers!!!
- Emily Beth - Cripps Barn
Absolutely beautiful bouquets and button holes.
Jo matched the roses to my wedding dress perfectly and made the most adorable flower wand for my flower girl.
Thank you so much.
- James and Victoria
Beautiful flowers and a wonderful service from start to finish. I knew from very early on in the wedding planning process that I wanted Aqua Flowers for our wedding as the photos and examples at wedding fairs I had seen were all stunning, and Jo did not disappoint!
- Dorothy and Christopher - The Barn at Upcote
We booked Jo for our wedding on 29th December 2017, she provided three bouquets, five button holes, two thanking bouquets, a beautiful table plan, centre pieces and postbox.
Considering that Jo had to work with the flower market only opening the day before the wedding, The flowers were exceptional. Beautiful colours and textures, as if she had plucked it form my own mind! And her range of additional pieces is extensive.
I couldn't recommend you more.
- Kayla & Terry - The Hare and Hounds
Jo did an absolutely amazing job producing beautiful bouquets, buttonholes, flower crowns and other decorative flowers for our wedding back in August. We wanted a really wild, cottage garden, birds, butterflies and bees feel and she completely understood how to achieve this with the flowers she suggested for us. The bees flocked to the gorgeous bouquets too which we loved! All of our guests remarked on mine and the flower girls flower crowns, which were better than I could have imagined. We can't recommend Jo enough, she was so helpful and understanding of our needs, thanks so much again, the flowers really made the day just beautiful! X
- Sophie & Lee - The Barn at Upcote
We had our wedding in August and were recommended Aqua Flowers by our venue owner. I'm so glad we chose to work with Jo, she was amazing! I barely gave her any direction, just a simple mood board, but she automatically understood exactly what we wanted and the delivery was beyond what we imagined. Everyone commented on how gorgeous they were!
- Anna & Max - Withington Marque
Jo at Aqua did the flowers for our wedding last month and what an incredible job she did! Everything from my stunning bouquet, to the bridesmaid's flowers, wrist corsages and venue flowers, was just perfect. Jo was really able to take on board the feel I wanted for our wedding and transform that into our flowers... I'm sure I didn't even explain myself very well but she still absolutely got it! I can't recommend her enough, she made the whole process really easy and relaxing and I would absolutely recommend her to any one I know. Thanks so much again Jo, since getting our professional photos back, it's highlighted even more how much the flowers really do add to the amazing ambience of the day - Janna & David - The Barn at Upcote
Jo and her team put together some absolutely beautiful flowers for our wedding last weekend. My Mum and bridesmaids loved them, and they suited the venue and dresses perfectly. They managed to capture my vision (although I didn't perhaps always know exactly what I wanted!). The flowers have lasted so well and we've got bunches of them at home still going strong! We really appreciated all the hard work and attention to detail. The flowers put the final touches on our perfect day. Thank you so much!! Xxx
- Lucy and Jordan – The Barn at Upcote
I was unfortunately let down by my original florist just a few weeks before the wedding, and was put in touch with Jo at Aqua by my wedding venue. I never spoke with Jo face-to-face due to the short notice, so all our discussions about my bouquets were via email - but I couldn't have been happier with the results! The bouquets were gorgeous, and exactly what I wanted, and even after almost a week they are still looking fresh in a vase on my table. Thank you for your help, and your wonderful work.
- Tavia - The Barn at Upcote
I am writing, as mother of the bride, with reference to my daughters wedding at Cripps Barn on the weekend.
They are on honeymoon at the moment, so I thought I would take this opportunity to thank you so much for arranging the beautiful flowers for their wedding.
All the bouquets, pew ends and table centres were just gorgeous to look at and were perfumed too.
Florence was given a flower press as a present, so I have managed to press petals and a few whole flowers. We took the bride's bouquet in on Wednesday to be preserved in 3D, as a lovely memento of the day.
So many thanks for all your hard work from us all.
- Florence and Ian - Cripps Barn
For our wedding last month, we knew that we were looking for the sort of beautiful woodland themes that you see on Pinterest and Jo at Aqua was able to take our vision from Pinterest pictures and provide us with an absolutely picture-perfect flowers that looked even better than the pictures! Along with gorgeous white and green bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids, Jo also made a stunning floral hoop for the barn and beautiful, delicate arrangements for the middle of the wedding breakfast tables. The icing on the cake was an absolutely beautiful flower-crown that completed and complemented my wedding dress and veil wonderfully - thank you Jo!
- Hannah and Ed - The Barn at Upcote
We booked our wedding through The Swan Hotel in Bibury who provided us with a list of Wedding specialists for Flowers , music, other accommodation and a number of people who provide accessories for weddings. After a lovely conversation over the phone with Jo, we went to meet her to discuss not only Adoring Angels services but also their partner company Aqua Flowers. I have to say that we were so impressed and the ideas Jo came up with were over and above anything we could have imagined ourselves... After all they do this for a living so of course we went with them.
Jo has been absolutely amazing for me as a bride this last year, I imagine most brides (and some grooms) worry about everything on the lead up to the big day but this wonderful lady was simply perfect...she advised me helped guide me on my ideas and on the day delivered the BEST table arrangements I have ever seen and also the flowers done by Aqua were equally incredible. Anthony and I can not thank you enough for all of your help, guidance and support we had a perfect day and everyone commented on how gorgeous everything was! As soon as we have our photographs of the flowers and tables back I will post them as they need to be seen by all! Xx
- Hayley & Antony - The Swan Bibury
Hi Jo, thank you so much for the lovely flowers, candles, table flowers, signs etc....it was such a magical day and your flowers made it all look stunning!
- Monique -Barnsley House
Aqua Flowers provided an exceptional service for our wedding at the weekend and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. The autumnal arrangements provided were absolutely stunning and a lot of effort was made by Jo on the day to make sure that everything came together and looked perfect for us - we really appreciated it. When my bouquet was brought up to my room, I was so happy - it was perfect! Thank you once again.
