FOREVER IN LOVE WITH FLOWERS
I have always loved flowers… their colour, texture, movement and energy… their little faces and sweet scent, delicate petals and even their thorny stems. I grew up in a house with a big garden and spent my days picking blooms, making potions, climbing trees and tending my own wee patch of earth… beautifying, spreading seeds and being out in nature. I love flowers and I really love weddings. After 17 years experience working and teaching with flowers at home and in London I started Honeysuckle Rose to share that love and passion. Over the years I have developed my natural personal style…romantic and relaxed, full of gardeny goodness, whimsy and fun. I love to forage for those extra special ingredients that make all the difference and I still grow flowers and pick from my childhood garden.
I live in Tauranga, New Zealand with my husband and two beautiful boys Jamie (7yrs) and Flynn (4yrs), who I am training up to fill buckets, snip stems and above all appreciate the beauty of nature.
Oh and I also really love yoga, long walks on the beach (yes, for real), cooking, singing and dancing with my boys in the kitchen.
FROM MY LOVELY CLIENTS
"Jess Jackson is incredible. We had her as our wedding party and cake florist in March this year, at Old Forest School, BOP. She was so organised and went through important details with us in person. She offered us various options for costs, which was very supportive in our wedding preparation and budgeting.
On the day, Jess personally delivered the flowers in gorgeous boxes and jars. She left us a very touching card, wishing us well on big day. This was a personal touch my husband and I appreciated greatly. She also liaised with our cake maker and delivered flowers to them to decorate our cake to synchronise with our wedding theme. We received compliments all day about our flowers, they looked amazing and complimented our colour theme perfectly.
I would highly recommend Honeysuckle Rose as your wedding florist."
"When Jess delivered my wedding flowers I literally got teary-eyed - they were absolutely stunning, and exactly what I had imagined for my day. I had so many guests comment on the gorgeous bouquets.
From the day I contacted Jess she was amazing, we only met once face to face, but that meeting confirmed for me I had chosen exactly the right person - just completely genuine, passionate, creative and a beautiful person. I can't thank you enough Jess!! xx"
“We absolutely loved working with Honeysuckle Rose to create our wedding florals!
From the first meeting with Jess I was confident she would do an amazing job, her passion for creating beautiful flowers was clear to see and talking though ideas with her was really exciting. From the bouquets, buttonholes, table florals and garlands, everything Jess created was absolutely beautiful and exactly the style we were after.
Thanks for helping make our day so special!”
“Jess at Honeysuckle Rose is not only a truly delightful, genuine person but amazingly talented with so much passion for what she does. I couldn’t recommend Jess highly enough.
Throughout the planning process she was always super responsive and supportive. Jess listened to what I was after but also made some wonderful suggestions about how to decorate our venue, which I will be eternally grateful for as the flowers just made the place shine!
All the flowers on the day literally took my breath away, my bouquet is still one of my most favourite things every time I look at the photos. You won’t regret contacting Jess, just make sure you get in early so you don’t miss out!”
“Jess did the most amazing flowers for my wedding, they were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what I had requested. They could not have been more perfect, and I got so many compliments on the day. Nothing was too much trouble for Jess, even offering to pick up my cake on the way to the venue!
When it rained she moved all the flowers from outside to inside no stress at all!!!
Jess is an absolute delight to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her and her exquisite work to anyone!”
“I can’t thank Jess enough for the amazing service she provided for our wedding. After reading so many wonderful reviews of her work from previous brides at our venue, I didn’t look anywhere else and went straight to Jess.
Jess somehow managed to pull my scattered thoughts into a plan and was really great at helping us adjust things to fit our budget. She was ever so gracious at responding to all my emails and changes and worked in perfectly with our other suppliers. All of our bouquets were so beautiful and what she managed to setup at our venue was amazing, including going the extra mile to “pretty up” a backdrop we had created with some fresh flowers, so very much appreciated.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jess to anyone wanting flowers for any event. She is a genuinely lovely and kind person and you can see her passion for floristry in everything she does.
Thanks again Jess – we can’t thank you enough for making our day so beautiful xx ”
“I can’t think of enough good things to say about Jess of Honeysuckle Rose’s gorgeous work at my wedding at Ataahua Garden Venue.
Her florals were magical and surpassed even my wildest expectations. I didn’t do a great job of describing what I was envisioning, but what Jess created was even better.
I only wish I could get married again so I could have Jess work her magic once more!”
