I’m Emma of Betty Bluebell and I create flowers with punch, pizzazz and a whole lotta love for all occasions. Weddings are my speciality but I also cater for events, funerals and special occasions.
I am studio based, I don’t operate as a shop and don’t keep a constant stock of flowers. A minimum of 24 hours is required for individual gift orders but as much notice as possible is best as I can’t always make it to market every working day.
My workspace is in Cambuslang, around 15 minutes from Glasgow City Centre, but I travel countrywide for weddings.
A bit of background;
Betty was my gran and my middle namesake.
I’ve been involved in making weddings happen in some capacity for 10 years. I have a background in hospitality and event planning and in 2013/2014 I retrained as a florist after falling in love with the creative side of weddings. I hold a City & Guilds accredited floristry qualification from Glasgow Clyde College.
I have been nominated for a few awards on my journey but many I don’t believe in: concentrating on doing good work and receiving recommendations from clients and fellow suppliers alike fuels my soul. I have been really fortunate to be the choice florist for several industry professionals’ weddings.
I organise Floraboration which is a not for profit creative project for professional florists. You can read more about our events and community on our website, www.floraboration.co.uk.
