Tell us a bit about yourself and your wedding services
My name is Emma Lawson and I run Betty Bluebell which a studio based florist based in Cambuslang. I am renowned for wedding flowers and I have been involved in making weddings happen for 12 years with a background in hospitality and events management.
How long have you been a wedding florist, and working with us?
I retrained over 2013/2014 and have been full time flowering since January 2015. I started working with TNPC in 2017 providing their flowers for corporate events, Christmas and wedding packages.
What has been your favourite wedding you have worked on here at The National Piping Centre and why?
Helen, TNPC’s Marketing Manager, and Darach’s wedding. It’s an honour being chosen to play in a role in any couple’s wedding day, but when you’re picked by someone who works in the industry and sees a lot of weddings it’s always particularly special!
What are the best questions that a couple can ask you about their wedding flowers?
‘How can we best utilise our budget?’ Fresh flowers are a luxury product which can transform your wedding; creating scenery, evoking scent and setting your day apart from the rest. Trust is massively important to me, you won’t see your flowers until the day so I need to feel comfortable that I’m going to turn up with flowers my couples are going to love. Budget is always a stickler of a question - I get it, you’ve probably never ordered wedding flowers before! But if you have an overall figure in mind then it’s always helpful to be upfront so I can let you know if it’s realistic for your wishes or suggest alternatives.
What’s the best advice you have for future brides & grooms when planning their wedding?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. You can put so much thought, effort and budget into little touches that will be largely overlooked by your guests. People will notice one big wow arrangement - they probably won’t notice the tiny vases in the toilets!
