Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the workspace of Emily Wisher in Staffordshire. A truly delightful space where Emily creates floral arrangements for weddings and special occasions. My first visit was rescheduled due to snow, but just one week later the sun was shining brightly, perfect for lots of outdoor shots.
I think you’ll agree, Emily’s workspace is located in a gorgeously perfect courtyard, filled with homegrown flowers and pots of spring blooms. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by Emily’s fabulously branded Defender… anyone who knows me will know how much I love them!
Emily’s arrangements are botanically dreamy in style, inspired by wild English meadows and woodland glades. Emily is an Art History graduate and this is reflected in the unique, stylistic context to her floral arrangements and posies. Emily likes to work with natural materials gathered herself in the countryside surrounding her Whittington workspace. The studio is filled with a library of resources, ribbon, vases and pots.
Emily grows her own flowers and works as a consultant on other cutting garden projects. The courtyard is full of planted bedding areas and a greenhouse workspace ready for the next season’s projects.
Emily’s office and consultation area is as you would expect… full of inspiring books and magazines, a big comfy sofa, lots of wall art and homemade biscuits.
When I arrived I was lucky enough to time it perfectly for when a selection of gorgeous Spring wedding arrangements were ready and waiting for a weekend’s wedding.
Just when I thought I had seen it all… through the door of the workspace is a secret garden, sun soaked and very inviting! I’m sure Emily enjoys many a tea break on the lawn.
