Goodness. It has been a while since I caught you up on the goings on around here!
I'd love to show you some of the weddings from 2022, both from my camera and thanks to our gorgeous couples sharing some of their professional images. It's truly appreciated, to see your whole day through the lens of a professional.
The 2022 wedding season kicked off in March
with Meg and Josh, who married at Walton Castle in Somerset. The site dates back to the Iron Age, and is even mentioned in the Doomsday book, however the site you see today holds a castle that originates from the early 1600s. The views are spectacular, and the venue is a perfect place to celebrate an occasion so special.
Meg and Josh had a bright and vibrant colour scheme, wishing to keep it as seasonal as possible. A teardrop bouquet for Meg, and posies for the bridesmaids made for a beautiful procession down the aisle, where Josh stood waiting in front of the broken arch.
The broken arch moved across to their marquee which was filled with spring jars on each table. Their pew ends were added to vessels too, to ensure full use of all the flowers across the day.

In April, we were able to help Jess and Louis celebrate their wedding day at Barley Wood, a manor house just outside of Bristol. This venue is steeped in local history, and has a wide and varied past. Today, you can hire the whole space and beautiful gardens that face towards the mendips, to celebrate your special occasions.
The Blossom Parlour's next big wedding was for the gorgeous Aashna and Bertie, at Crowcombe court. A building that was designed by Nathaniel Ireson, who also built Stourhead (my absolute favourite NT location), the style is described as English Regional Baroque and sits across the Queen Anne and Georgian periods - is it any wonder that I absolutely adore the space?! It truly is one of my favourites to dress and has such potential when it comes to floral design.
Bertie unfortunately is allergic to flowers (quite severely!) so this wedding was a foliage only affair, which I was excited about. Working alongside the wonderful Alison and her team from Creative Collections, we transformed the space into something that reflected Aashna and Bertie as a couple.
At the very end of April, we finally saw Rose and Saul get married at the beautiful Weston Museum. Another venue filled with history, quite literally, the atrium was beautiful and bright on this spring day and we made full use of the incoming peonies! The balcony lent itself to an installation of fresh spring greenery that worked really well with the heavy foliage table runners that seated all the guests on two long banqueting tables. These were punctuated with vases of flowers.
In total, April had 6 weddings, some a lot smaller, but the Covid Catch Up was still well and truly going, and the long days were in full swing! Hugely grateful to the freelance team who contributed to these weddings, because without them, it would have been a lot harder!
