From way back in April through to just before Christmas, we have been working on some of the most amazing weddings this year... private garden marquees, glorious new locations, fabulous dedicated wedding venues and purpose built structures
I'd like to be able to give you a run down month-by-month of each one, but unfortunately I don't have the professional shots in for every wedding yet! All wedding suppliers have been completely run off their feet this year, ironic really considering in 2020 we hardly did anything! So my photographer friends are madly editing, sorting and reviewing their bulging files to get the images and albums to our couples as soon as they can... and boy will they be worth the wait x
So I'm going to give you just a glimpse of some of the varied weddings we've been honoured to get involved with over the past 9 months...
One of the first weddings in the Spring had moved from almost the same date in 2020 so we were able to pick up on the same flowers and colour theme as originally planned and it was a beaut!
Leah and Mark married at one of the gorgeous college campus' in Cambridge and chose beautifully seasonal flowers and colours to complement the Bridesmaids mixed eclectic dresses... how amazing do they all look?
And I think this shot sums up the year perfectly... groomsmen mucking in to make everything run smoothly as they help to move ceremony flowers to the reception venue at Longstowe Hall! x

Next we move to a beautiful outdoor ceremony and another small intimate wedding with just 30 guests at Houchins in Essex... brilliantly and beautifully designed and curated by the lovely Chenai at By Chenai Weddings, we had soft delicate seasonal flowers, gentle colour palette and some stunning details including embroidered napkins, bespoke china and a gorgeous ceremony circle where the couple married surrounded by their friends and family
We created the first of many arches in 2020 right here and I have to say for many reasons, this is probably one of my most favourite... using a delicate palette of powder blue and white, we made a garden at the base with hydrangea and delphinium and wove tendrils of jasmine and climbing roses up the metal structure to make it appear like a permanent feature
The ceremony circle comprised fresh and dried elements including pampas, grasses, foxgloves, roses, peonies, delphinium, larkspur and campanula... we then moved the displays to the ends of the long table and around the bar so nothing was wasted
And the table was the most beautiful array of pale blue ceramic bowls, bud vases and toning taper candles
