Flowers that dazzle and events to delight
Who are we...
I'm Jo Wise, I'm an artisan florist combining my background in theatre and event design with a love and understanding of garden-grown flowers to create unforgettable weddings, innovative events and creative floristry workshops.
Combining my background in theatre and event design with a love and understanding of garden-grown flowers I create unforgettable weddings, innovative events and run creative floristry workshops.
I work throughout Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and sometimes beyond I source my flowers from local growers with gardens we can meet at if you would like to see your wedding flowers growing.
I will work closely with you to ensure the whole experience will be fun, relaxed and with arrangements that will exceed all expectation.
I have a huge vintage china and glass collection available for hire alongside pails, jars and bottles. I’m also happy to supply buckets of flowers for DIY brides alongside private tutorials in floristry and flower arranging hen do parties.
I have worked with garden grown flowers for the last eight years. In 2008 I co-founded one of the first organic grower florist partnerships in the UK. Over the years I spent there I taught workshops on how to arrange with garden grown flowers and arranged 100’s of weddings.
In 2014 I decided to spread my creative wings and set up Floral Circus. I am no longer tied into to using flowers from one garden, but still source the majority of my flowers within a 10 mile radius. My two main suppliers are Babylon Flowers in Watlington and Bosley Patch in Henley on Thames. Both Cutting gardens are run by extremely experienced growers, who I know very well and their websites are listed below.
If I need to buy from further a field, I source from various growers across the UK, mainly in Cornwall.
My love and understanding of garden grown flowers has deepened with time and personally knowing the growers and how the flowers are produced is very important to me. Seasonality and sustainability is at the heart of my floristry.
