Hello, my name is Emma.
Welcome to A Bunch Of Wild, a seasonal photo journal of flowers and nature.
I am a seasonal floral designer, my inspiration comes from the local countryside. I create bouquets, wreaths and one off pieces from sustainable foraged finds from the hedgerows and I grow beautiful flowers in my cottage garden in Bedfordshire.
My chickens eat the slugs and the ladybirds eat the greenfly so everyone is happy. I’m often in my greenhouse with a cold cup of tea and Purdey my beagle by my feet. I just love growing and arranging flowers that have a wonderful scent and twist and bend in the vase! My floral creations are very loose and informal and I plan carefully for the seasons so there is usually something flowering from April till November! My addition of foraged foliage makes for a very seasonal display of blooms capturing a delightful wildness. My background is in interiors and styling, and I find florals play a key part in finishing a look! I adore vintage zinc and faded floral linens, romantic roses and buckets of cow parsley.
My garden is both the inspiration and tools of my trade. I style flowers for photography, host floral workshops and make wild wreath sculptures out of foraged and found pieces that i’ve either picked up on my walks with the dog or things I have grown in my garden. I love to make something out of nature, the textures are just so wonderful and no two things are ever the same.
You can find my one off floral pieces at the beautiful gift shop Minchin and May in Woburn, it is run by two lovely sisters! Well worth a visit!
I provide 1 to 1 workshops from my home in Bedfordshire in floral arranging with garden flowers and foraged finds from the hedgerows, you can also pick my brains on styling, photography and instagram. I also offer workshops on vintage styling and phone photography. For collaborations please get in touch.
