About us

Jade and Julian Dunkerton first met Jo Wood in 2017 after a personal recommendation led them to her company Flowers by Passion in Bath. They booked her to design and deliver their wedding that year, and after working closely together for months, an amazing relationship grew. From there the idea for The Beautiful Flower Co. was born.

Being part of the Dowdeswell Park location has been thrilling right from the get go. From designing the shop together, and seeing the brand come to life, the Dunkertons and Jo have created something truly special in Cheltenham.

The team has quickly grown to include senior florists and designers, and our shop has become a creative hub, as each new member of staff brings something special to the space.
