Exeter-based florist Emma Hewlett is renowned for her beautifully creative and versatile approach to floristry. From classic romance to contemporary chic and dreamy boho to relaxed rustic, she can turn her hand to all floral styles with stunning results.
Passionate about making her service as sustainable as possible, Emma ensures all her floral designs are foam-free while avoiding single-use plastics. In a bid to push the sustainability envelope further, Emma has now launched a British wedding florals package. Using only flowers from local growers based within 20 minutes of her studio rather than imported varieties, the package allows couples to enjoy beautiful local blooms with a minimal carbon footprint. “I have built up a great relationship with growers that means I can tap into what is truly local to me,” says Emma.
Rather than couples specifying the flowers they’d like, Emma will use the very best blooms in the chosen palette which are available to pick the week of the wedding. “Obviously if there are key seasonal flowers the couple would like, such as roses, then I would ensure they are included, but it will be less of a recipe of flowers, allowing for a more free and natural design,” she explains. “I want to show couples that they can still have the most gorgeous flowers without relying on imported ones.”
The new package includes bouquets for brides and bridesmaids, buttonholes and table flowers, with options for larger floral installations also available for wow-worthy florals which are big on style and low on carbon impact.
