Welcome to Emma Bunting!
We've been designing elegant and stylish bunting since 2004 and think EVERY occasion is worth getting the bunting out for! We specialise in designing and creating cotton bunting, made to last year after year, all produced in Britain. We champion using sustainable cotton and encourage the use or reuse or up-cycling of all fabrics. We can provide hand-finished, machine embroidered, heat-pressed vinyl or machine printed bunting.
We can offer you either a bespoke or hire option for any event or party.
Each bespoke job is a one off, our in-house design team can create your own bespoke bunting for weddings, parties, corporate events or for TV & Film props, most notably in Yesterday and Paddington2 movies and featured 5th Nov 2019 in the BBC Holby City's 1000th episode and several times on BBC DIYSOS The Big Build. There is no minimum or maximum order and there are no rules as to what we can or can't create, if we can draw it, we can create it!
How we started
Back in 2004, Emma's daughter, Charlotte, wanted her name spelled out on bunting for her fourth birthday party. Nothing Emma found online was suitable, there weren't any companies offering a bespoke option. So, she set to work making it herself. The simple beginnings of "Emma Bunting". We have come a long way since those early days, and have worked with everything from mini cake bunting up to producing miles of bunting to pave the way for the reburial of King Richard III in Leicester.
The Northumberland Team is headed up by Pauline in production, who has spent most of her life creating and stitching [there isn't anything about bunting that Pauline doesn't know about!] and Karen in events, who has spent years building up her own wedding styling business, Ruby Tuesday Events. Emma lives in Hertfordshire.
We have produced bunting for various TV shows such as BBC DIYSOS The Big Build and Made in Chelsea, as well as various movies, including Paddington 2, Yesterday and The Kid Who Would Be King. We have designed and created corporate bunting for Royalty and companies such as Warner Bros, Innocent Drinks, Mothercare, English Heritage, BMW, and Oxfam to name just a few, being distributed across Europe and Asia.
Originally from Liverpool, Emma has lived in worked in four different continents, living abroad for 13 years and had to learn two languages along the way. She now lives in Hertfordshire after recently moving from Northumberland where she lived for 15 years.
Supporting others in business is close to Emma's heart. In 2012 she established the "Morpeth Women's Networking Group" in Morpeth. By 2018, the group had grown to over 500 strong and was awarded the "Emily Wilding Davison" Award for Inspiring Women in Business. The group still meets once a month and is continuously growing.
After touring Liberia with Oxfam in 2014, Emma has been speaking to companies and schools in the North of England about her journey and the work Oxfam does.
2019 was a big year for Emma as she and Brad were married, and of course there was bunting! She lives with her husband, daughter, two dogs, one cat and a tank full of fish. Her oldest is currently studying interior architecture in Sheffield and her daughter about to embark on studying film at university in London.
