Hello, I’m Fiona.
I run Emerald & Jade Flowers in France, in the Nouvelle Aquitaine area. I live in a small hamlet with my husband and two chilldren, in between Angouleme and Poitiers.
I initially started Emerald & Jade Flowers in Bristol, following a career change from being an employment law lawyer. I had always been a creative soul so I feel that this was always meant to be.
I successfully ran Emerald & Jade Flowers for several years, up until our move to France. I mainly focussed on weddings, funerals and workshops. I was nominated two years in a row as Regional Finalist for the South West of England for the Wedding Industry Awards.
My husband Barry is an RHS qualified garden designer and gardener, and also runs his own company: Le Jardin Contemporain.
We left Bristol in March 2018 for our new life in France, and are currently working on and redecorating our 1790s French farmhouse.
We also run our gite business from home, offering two self catered cottages. You can find further information on this on our website : Emerald and Jade Gites.
Having settled into our new life in France, I am now ready to relaunch Emerald and Jade Flowers here in France, and can’t wait to get started!
So whether you are looking for a wedding florist, would like to discuss workshop opportunities or retreats, or simply want to say hello, I look forward to hearing from you!
