So lets start with formalities: my name’s Emmi and I’m based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. With a background in art and design I have always appreciated the beauty in nature. I take inspiration from the changing seasons; there’s nothing quite like the pink blossom trees against a crisp spring blue sky and the magnificent shades of orange that adorn our trees in autumn. I'm a great lover of greenery and foliages and love to use British blooms where possible!
Originally from London, I studied Art History at the University of Brighton and although I found my course fascinating, I longed to be involved in a more hands on and creative industry. Following university saw me and my partner move to Newcastle upon Tyne, where I completed my floristry qualifications and found my true passion in this colourful industry! Having learnt the ins and outs of the business from one of the leading North East wedding florists, Fleur Couture, a move to the Midlands has given me the freedom to launch Running with Wolves. (It’s safe to say I’ve made my way around the country!)
When I’m not designing and creating beautiful wedding flowers, I can be found spending time with my partner Marcus and our French Bulldog, Elvis. We love long walks exploring new parts of the country as well as quiet and chilled evenings by the fire. I also love to travel (I am a slave to the sun) so to combine my love for travel with my love for flowers and to be a part of a destination wedding would be a dream come true!
