You may have noticed by now I’m a big fan of colour and love using seasonal flowers in bright, bold colours so I was in my element bringing together all the spring blooms for Debbie and Ed’s wedding captured by Scott Stockwell Photography at Birtsmorton Court last spring. I combined ranunculus, tulips, hellebores, snapdragons, waxflowers and narcissi in jewel-like tones of cerise, maroon, coral and orange for a lush, abundant style.

Debbie’s bouquet was filled with all the colourful spring blooms and verdant green foliage, along with a few pheasant feathers for a rustic country look, finished off with floating trails of hand-dyed silk ribbons in soft greens.

The chaps had buttonholes of bright ranunculus, with waxflowers, scabious seedpods and pheasant feathers.

The church was decorated with a wild churn arrangement and low, loose pedestal in a mix of colours, with the addition of some whites to lighten the arrangements in the darker space; and those pheasant feathers again.

I supplied Debbie and her helpers with bucketfuls of bright flowers for lots of little glass bottles to line along the trestle tables which looked fab with her colourful watercolour place settings.

I really loved the colours in this spring wedding, a bold change from the usual spring pastels so I hope it’s given you some inspiration for your own spring wedding. Thank you to Debbie and Ed for letting me share a few images from their special day and also to Scott for letting me share his work. You can find more info about Scott’s wedding photography at
