2020 has been a bummer of a year so far. :-(

Due to COVID-19, weddings have been either cancelled or postponed left, right and centre.

For suppliers like me and so many of my friends and colleagues, we are in the middle of a financial, creative and motivational drought.

It has been devastating for so many couples, and the impact of this pandemic is likely to be felt for a good while longer. All we can do is offer understanding, support, speedy communication, and a friendly dose of goodwill to all our clients until things become clearer and begin to return to normal.

In spite of everything, I am a positive soul and I'm sure many of us would agree that there have also been positives to lock-down...

.... toast for lunch, office time in my pj's, and more days down at the allotment than I ever thought possible!

Work-wise, the benefits have included time to update this entire website (hope you like it!) and this in turn has required trawling through my back-catalogue of weddings from the past few years, to choose a new selection of favourite images. And it was then that I realised how many fabulous weddings have slipped through the net, at least as far as getting their own WDWF blog feature is concerned. That's the trouble with 'normal' years ... there just aren't enough hours.

Now here we are, with all the time in the world, and so my first offering to you is Sarah and Cameron's big day. This one was particularly memorable for me as it occurred during my first season after selling my retail flower business to launch myself as a freelance bridal florist.

It also stands out because Sarah is just SO photogenic. Every image is a gem, which makes it infuriatingly hard to work out what to show you. They're just so good!!

I'm sure their photographer Richard would agree. Also a favourite supplier at Gorwell Barn, we have worked together a number of times, and his images always exhibit a wonderful warmth, and seem to capture the total personality of their subject.

The flower brief was herbaceous and garden-like; Sarah chose for her bouquet to be front-facing in a sheaf style, which worked beautifully with the linear lines of the larkspur, astilbe and stocks. Her maids carried simpler posies, as their dresses were pretty and patterned.

Her flower crown was made from dainty wax-flower and astrantia in dusky pink shades, and suited her down to the ground.

"Thank you so much for everything. The flowers were absolutely amazing! ...

I had to have my flower crown prised off me before we set off on honeymoon, or I would have taken it with me!"
