Sweet peas and peonies
A few months back I wrote about my visit to Blush Floral Design, where I photographed florist Bex preparing blue, purple and pink flowers for a very colourful wedding. It seemed a little strange to see the bride’s bouquet before she had set eyes on it herself, and I left wondering how the finished arrangements would look on the day. Well, the answer is blimmin’ stunning! Emily & Rhys got married at All Saints Church in Tilford, Surrey, followed by a reception at Groomes House, near Borden in Hampshire. Bex told me that Emily was pretty laid-back about the flowers she wanted – as long as they were colourful and fun, she’d be happy! The mixture of pink sweet peas and hydrangeas with bright blue delphiniums is a classic cottage garden combo – perfect for a country-style wedding. The wedding photographs were taken by Simon Slater (with close-ups of flowers by yours truly).

Pastel-coloured sweet peas looked fab against the deep blue bridesmaid dresses.
