Beth and Thomas Wedding Venue: Caswell House

Matthew... Honestly I can't thank you enough for everything you did for us. The flowers were even more beautiful than I could have imagined and we had so many compliments! The logs, candles and moongate for the ceremony took my breath away when I turned the corner to walk down the aisle. The table arrangements brought the room together and created such an enchanting feel and fragrance. It really was a dream come true and as your name states, you really were fabulous!

We took my bouquet to the cemetery for Tom's dad who passed away a couple of years ago, that was something I'd known I'd wanted to do from early on in the wedding planning and we've dried small bunches of the other flowers, so the house is still filled with a beautiful aroma that takes us back to moments from the day.

I've been (and will keep on) recommending you to anyone who asks!

We loved coming to see you at your delightful shop as well before the wedding and will definitely come to you for other arrangements, yours just stand out beautifully in a way we'd not seen before. I must mention the flower crowns and pomanders for our flower girls...gosh they were absolutely utterly gorgeous! With those and their sparkly converse trainers, they both felt like little princesses!

To all at Fabulous Flowers,
Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding flowers! They were absolutely beautiful - so many guests commented on them throughout the day and they brought so much joy to us. Thank you!
Thanks also for your help and advice on colour schemes and flower choices. I really didn't know anything, only what I liked or disliked when shown and I appreciated your help and advice re coordinating them with bridesmaids dresses etc.
Thank you so much for your help and being so professional.
I attach some photos of your wonderful flowers

Kate and Aiden’s Wedding Wedding Venue: Blenheim palace

Dear Matthew, Faye and all the team,

Many apologies - I meant to write to you before but Kate and I just wanted to say a VERY BIG thank you for the flowers at Kate’s wedding - they were magnificent and went beyond our expectations. We received many compliments from our guests too so thank you all very much for your fantastic talents and hard work. The day went very smoothly with all organisation by the Blenheim staff faultless so I hope you found the same in your dealings with them.

Again, very many thanks for making Kate’s wedding day so spectacular.

Very best wishes,

Ann Hughes

Francesca and Alex Wedding Venue: Le Manoir

I selected Fabulous Flowers as the suppliers for my wedding flowers and decorations at the Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and I couldn’t have wished for better service or better flowers and decorations!!

From the initial consultation with Matthew and Faye I just knew I had made the right choice!! They understood exactly the look and style I wanted for the wedding and provided lots of helpful suggestions for styling the wedding and also on how I could channel my budget into the decorations and styling that mattered.

From that initial meeting all the way through to the wedding I felt like they actually cared about my wedding and I was absolutely right!!

I later realised they partnered with Princess Patisserie, who made my wedding cake. I contacted them to let them know they would be providing the flowers for the cake, the inspiration for which I had taken from instagram. Imagine my happiness when I received an updated quote with a beautiful picture of the cake I had selected. This may seem like a small gesture, but if you are planning a wedding it is this kind of attention to details that will warm your heart!!

On my wedding day even my highest expectations were blown away (and after months of looking at flowers and wedding decor on Instagram and Pinterest, my expectations were pretty high!!). The decorations they provided were elegant and beautiful and the table decorations and my bouquet were even more stunning than I could have ever imagined!!! Matthew is incredibly talented and, as well as using fresh, beautiful flowers, has an eye for trends and elegant style that very few other florists can match.

My wedding day flowers were so beautiful they wouldn’t be out of place in a bridal magazine and my guests are still speaking about them two weeks on!!!

If you want the best, definitely consider Fabulous Flowers. They are, indeed, FABULOUS in every aspect of their craft: design, styling, procurement and execution.


Relaxed country House Wedding Wedding Venue: Wotton House Hotel

Thank you so much Gary, Mathew, Faye, Zoe, Laura, and all of the rest of the team at Fabulous Flowers. The stunning flowers at our daughter's wedding was one of the talking points of the day. From the start we loved working with you and were blown away by your creative interpretation of our daughter's vision for flowers on her wedding day. Thank you also for your attention to detail, quick professional responses and for always being so kind and cheerful

Country Wedding Wedding Venue: West Wycombe Park

Matthew and the Fabulous Flowers team perfectly captured the soft, romantic feel that François and I were looking for. Every arrangement was stunning and so creative, made with such great attention to detail. Our particular favourites were the amazing floral chandelier which hung over the dance floor (and which our guests are still commenting on!), the runner of pink and purple hydrangeas that decorated the top table, and of course my beautiful bridal bouquet.
The Fabulous Flowers team was a delight to work with and made the whole planning experience a pleasure. Thank you for bringing our vision to life!

Spring Wedding Wedding Venue: Laines Barn

Will definitely recommend you to others in future, thanks again.

Best wishes,
Emma and James Hume

Heather and Alasdair Wedding Venue: Kingston Bagpuize House

Dear Matthew

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the beautiful floral arrangements and bouquet you did for Heather & Alasdair’s wedding. Heather was thrilled with them as was I. She gave the table arrangements to guests but the two pedestals are now sitting in my dining room all be it now in vases.

Kind regards


Shaz and Dave’s Wedding at Blenheim Palace Wedding Venue: Blenheim Palace

So where do we start....! From the first moment we met Matthew and Faye, we felt completely at ease. We had some general ideas about what we liked and also disliked but the way the team took our initial thoughts and transformed this vision into the spectacular display for our wedding surpassed anything that we had hoped for. Going the extra mile simply does not do these guys justice! Every wedding is amazing in its own way, but the attention to detail that Fabulous Flowers demonstrated, took things to another level. Wow. We cannot thank you enough!! Love D&S XXX

Grainne & John Dear Matthew and Team,

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for making our day so special - and not to mention stress free!

It really was a pleasure working with you. As soon as I spoke to you I knew I was in safe hands and you wouldn't disappoint!

The brief was tricky - a two person wedding! - but that didn't phase you. You made me feel as special as a bride who was sharing her day with hundreds of guests!!

The room looked beautiful, and the attention to detail was absolute. Cascading orchids nestled on beds of hydrangea, trailing amaranthus all woven together with strings of pearls - what heaven!

I will never forget the moment I held my bouquet for the first time - it was simply stunning. I didn't want to let it go!

Thank you for all your support, creative input, guidance, skill and good humour! I REALLY wouldn't have had such a magical day without you, your advice was priceless. The wedding cake - you transformed it !!

I look forward to planning our next event!

All our love
Grainne & John

Lucy and Kev Wedding Venue: Caswell House

Dear Matthew, Faye and the team,

I’m sorry that it’s taken me so long to get in touch with you. We went straight on our honeymoon after our wedding on 1/11/15 and then have come straight back to work and it’s all been a bit of a whirlwind, however finally I have time to sit down and write to express our gratitude to you and all the team.

We are so grateful for all of your input to what was honestly the best day of our lives. You were all so kind and helpful in the run up to our wedding and on the day the flowers, wreathes and garlands looked stunning. Many of our guests commented on how lovely everything looked and we were so pleased with everything - it was exactly as we had imagined. It was fantastic to know that the flowers were in such good hands - your team are so practical and efficient and it all worked seamlessly and appeared to take no effort at all but I know that behind the scenes there was a huge amount of work involved for all of you.

Thank you for everything which you have done. We’ll remember the day always.

With our sincere thanks,
Lucy and Kev

Mary Kinsella Wedding Venue: Oxford Union

Dear Matthew,

I am writing to thank you for the spectacular flowers that you provided for our daughter's August 8th wedding. I literally gasped when I walked into the Oxford Union because I had never seen such beautiful flowers in my life. They were beyond my wildest expectations. Everyone was talking about them! The flowers transformed the Oxford Union into a magical venue. Your company is well named, as you certainly do create fabulous flowers.

Thank you for time and talent.

Kindest regards,
Mary Kinsella

Jo Dear Matthew,

I really don't know quite where to start, except to say that we cannot thank you enough for making our day incredibly special and memorable.

It was an absolute pleasure working with you, we wish we could do the whole thing all over again.

Very best wishes,

Ella and James Wedding Venue: The Dairy

Dear Matthew,

Just a note to say thank you for our wonderful flowers at our wedding at The Dairy on 12th July. We loved them. Here's a photo of the bouquet and a button hole in action!

Best wishes,

Ella and James

Rachel and Peter Dear Matthew

The flowers were indeed, Fabulous. More than that though, from day one you gave me tips and hints and advice which helped to make it by far the best day of our lives. Thanks for everything and best wishes to you and yours.

Rachel and Peter

Sophie Dear Matthew,

We were absolutely delighted with the flowers you prepared for our wedding on October 1st. I knew we were kindred spirits when you offered a stressed 'party organiser' a delicious biscuit, as well as a much needed cuppa. And when I met your dog, the deal was sealed.

The burnt orange in the arrangements made the photographs. I had numerous compliments, and all the dining table arrangements were snapped up when I offered them to the guests who made it to breakfast!

Thanks to you and your partner and team - Beautiful work.

Best, Sophie

Jenny Dear Matthew

Now that we are back from our honeymoon, I just wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful job you did with our wedding flowers. We loved everything - from my bouquet to the amazing floral arch, as well as the silver goblet displays. Everyone commented on the flowers, and they made the most of a very beautiful setting.

Thank you again

Best wishes

Alexandra Wedding Venue: Balliol Chapel

Hi Matthew,

I just wanted to thank you and all the team at Fabulous Flowers for the absolutely beautiful flowers for our wedding at Balliol Chapel on 21 May. My bouquet was far and away the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen (or smelled!) - I kept it with me all day because I loved it so much, and only reluctantly left it behind when I went on honeymoon. The flowers in Balliol Chapel were also stunning and everyone commented on how lovely they were. I attach a few photos so you can see how everything looked on the day!

Thank you so much for all your help and hard work, and I hope that you will all enjoy a very well-earned rest over the summer.

With best wishes,


Amanda Hi Fabulous Flowers,

We had the most wonderful day, and so many people have commented on how beautiful the flowers were! Kai and I have received the photographs, and the pictures of the flowers are absolutely gorgeous!

Very best,


Katherine and Emmanuel Wedding Venue: Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons

Dear Matthew,

Rather belatedly, we just wanted to thank you enormously for the amazing job you did with the flowers for our wedding - they were absolutely, spectacularly beautiful. Our guests were delighted to be sent away with these as mementos and we are told they lasted really well too.

You and your team are stars - thank you again for the part you played in making our wedding day entirely perfect.

Very best wishes,
Katherine and Emmanuel

Marisa Dear Matthew and Gary,

We absolutely loved the flowers, you guys did a great job!

Thank you so much you really helped to make our day fantastic!

Many thanks and best wishes


Caroline Dear Matthew,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for arranging and delivering my beautiful wedding flowers. They were beyond my expectations.

The flowers we'd requested had special meanings for us, I knew they were an unusual combination and orange is not the most popular wedding colour. From the initial consultation and further advice received I felt you guys did an excellent job. On the day I was delighted to see that you had incorporated proteas into the arrangements. It reminded me of the family that couldn't be there. It was the perfect choice as my SA family are proud of their roots. Our friends and family were queuing up to take the table centrepieces home. I know they enjoyed them whilst Mark and I were away together. They have relayed on the comments their visits and family visiting their homes made over the following week. I've dried Mark's buttonhole and some of my bouquet flowers as a memento of the day.
Mark said how professional you were when the flowers were dropped off but nothing was ready and you guys were prepared to come back later to finish off later automatically. I hope this didn't inconvenience you too much and I had no idea what a nightmare getting the venue ready had been that morning. Of all the 'suppliers' you were by far and above the most reliable, easiest to deal with and lived up, and in fact exceeded, to your promises!

Best wishes


Francesca & Alan Wedding Venue: Ashmolean Museum

Dear Fabulous Flowers,

Happy New Year!

Alan & I just wanted to thank you for an amazing job you did for our wedding at the Ashmolean on 7th December. The flowers were truly beautiful and really made it an even more special evening.

Best wishes
Francesca & Alan

Wan and Owain Dear Matthew and Gary,

We wanted to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did on Saturday - nothing short of spectacular. We loved everything - from the bridal bouquets, hairpieces, the garland round the staircase to the dinner setting and the reds in the bamboo baskets. It was an absolutely critical part to the atmosphere and the turnarounds were impressive.

Really well done, and I am so glad we took your advice for the full blown effect. Mom specifically said "The flowers were so beautiful, it was as if we were in a beautiful movie!"

Thank you, and we'd be happy to offer our recommendations should you ever need them.

Kind regards,

Francesca and Ian Hi Matthew and Gary

We have got back from our honeymoon and so back to normality! I just wanted to drop you both a quick email to thank you. The flowers were stunning and far beyond what either of us could have hoped for. Thank you also for coming to the rescue with the cake stand!

Francesca Millward

college wedding Dear Matthew and Gary

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so beautiful.

The flowers were perfect, as were the the candles, alms and little details - I especially loved my bouquet, it was exactly what I wanted. The chapel was just stunning - intimate and romantic. The tables looked gorgeous.

Thank you for all your hard work and for making our vision a reality

Melissa and Joe

Nicola and David Dear Matthew, Gary and Team!

Many thanks for making Nicola and David's wedding so very special. The flowers were amazing - a much overused word, but in this case it does not do them justice! The Church looked so very special, the gasps as people entered really could be... heard outside and the marquee - where does one start! As the reveal was drawn back the guests were in awe! The chandelier of flowers alone were tremendous and the tables! The topiary trees! All so perfect, and still blending in with the garden that we could see through the windows - very clever.

Please thank all the team who helped make their and our day perfect.

Lots of hugs
Caroline, Neil, Nicola and David (x2!)

Belle Epoque Dear Matthew and Gary,

The flowers truly were fabulous.

The whole of the Belle Epoque looked like a fairy tale and we loved the extra details on the corsages and buttonholes.

Ben and Leslie Field Dear Matthew and Team,

Ben and I wanted to say a hugh thank you for the beautiful flowers and flower arrangements for our wedding!

Matthew I was absolutely speechless when I entered the church as the arch you created was so beautiful, even more beautiful then I thought it would be!

I loved the variety of the centre pieces (especially loved the bird cages!) and was so pleased that everything was moved into perfect position in the marquee.

I will cherish my photos even more as you created the perfect, whimsical ambience with the flowers. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for making my vision come alive!!

All the best.

Ben and Leslie Field
