Creating beautifully bespoke blooms for South West couples
I always wanted to be a florist. I started out as a Saturday girl in a flower shop aged 14, then worked my way up to a manager. During this time my interest in designing wedding flowers grew, and in 2008 I took the leap to go solo and set up Emma Norton Flowers.
Since then I’ve had the privilege to create flowers for hundreds of weddings across Bristol and the West Country, adding some floral magic to people’s special days.
My three decades as a florist means you’ll be working with someone who’s passionate, creative and experienced at all elements of wedding flowers. I love creating colour palettes that complement your wedding, especially ones that are a little bit unusual. Where possible I use seasonal flowers and take inspiration from the unfolding year. You’ll always find foliage in my work, which I use alongside flowers to create a harmonious balance between colour, texture and structure.
The happiest part of my job as a wedding florist is delivering the flowers on your wedding day – there’s nothing lovelier than seeing someone’s face light up when you hand them their bouquet. A wedding is such a happy occasion to be a part of, and I love going on a floral journey with my couples.
During my career as a wedding florist in Bristol and the South West I’ve worked in lots of amazing venues, including Coombe Lodge, Priston Mill, Elmore Court, Old Down Estate, The Great Tythe Barn at Tetbury, Goldney Hall, Paintworks, Clevedon Hall, Tortworth Court, Kingscote Barn and many more.
Most days you’ll find me surrounded by flowers both inside and outside, working from the studio at the bottom of my garden. I’m based in Bristol and offer wedding flowers within an hour’s drive of the city, covering Bath, Somerset, Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds.
I’d love to meet you to talk about your ideas for your wedding flowers, and offer a complimentary, no-obligation consultation for all couples looking for a wedding florist.
Working with Emma Norton on your wedding flowers
Thank you for considering me as the florist for your
South West wedding.
Like many elements of wedding planning, organising your wedding flowers can seem a little daunting at first, so here’s a guide to how the process unfolds.
The first step is a free, no-obligation consultation. This is usually done in person but can be over video call if necessary. During this we’ll discuss all the requirements for your wedding flowers, from what type of floral arrangements you need to colour palettes, favourite flowers and display options from my extensive collection of vases, urns
After the consultation I’ll send you some mood boards and a detailed
quote. If you decide to book me to create your wedding flowers,
you’ll pay a deposit of £300.
We’ll have another meeting six weeks before the wedding to finalise the details. The final balance is due four weeks before your wedding day.
On your wedding day, I’ll deliver your bouquets and buttonholes to where the wedding party is getting ready. I’ll then set up the ceremony and reception flowers at your venue(s), working in tandem with any other professionals you’re using such as a stylist or planner. Once the wedding is over, I’ll collect any props and equipment the following day.
