I was so excited when I saw all the lovely images from Madeleine and George’s beautiful wedding – they married on the cusp of spring, and used wild cherry blossom as a key floral theme with darker reds and woodland shades to style their day. Their Vietnamese-English fusion wedding brings a lovely splash of colour with all the fabulous reds, and the portraits of the bride and groom are stunning, as is St Audries Park. You’ll love it!

“We used pale pink cherry blossom, rich red vanda orchids for a slightly oriental feel and blousy peony like, pale pink ranunculus, along with blue green foliages such as eucalyptus, ice plant. I wanted the bouquet to be natural looking, seasonal and trailing. A hand tied bouquet of flowers with an undulating, flowing and natural outline.

All the flowers in the bride and civil ceremony bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes, corsages for the tea ceremony bridesmaids and the decorations for the shrine tables, ceremony tables and centrepieces for the wedding breakfast tables used cherry blossom twigs which helped to give a winter into spring feel and the buttonholes and corsages picked up the ruby red, dusky pink colours of the morning ceremony. 


Carrina and Simon were lucky enough to be married at the spectacular St Audries Park in Somerset in October, and their wedding caught my eye for its rich colours, styling and location. St Audries Park is gorgeous – the ivy climbing the tower is the most romantic backdrop and makes for amazing images.

My lovely friend and sponsor Simon Biffen emailed me to share a sneak peek of Rebecca and Simon’s wedding from St Audries Park in Somerset. The image above is just a snippet of one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve seen this year.
