This time last year I teamed up with the ridiculously talented Sam of Paper Angel Photography, Rock Follies Vintage & Revamp Art for a photoshoot at Spetchley Park Gardens… not quite sure where the past 12 months have gone but I thought it fitting to share the images one year on!


 June Styled Shoot-140
As you’ll see, it was the most gorgeous day; filled with fab vintage attire, bright British blooms and set in the stunning grounds of Spetchley! To be honest, we were spoilt for choice with the locations… we squeezed SO much in; from ribbons to table settings, a mock ceremony, pictures in the greenhouse and recreating the indoors, outdoors.

Even in the early planning stages, the ribbons were something Sam and I had had our hearts set on doing and the rest just followed. John of ReVamp Art lent us all the furniture, I raided my collection of glasses, lace and crockery… & Lynda… well, she’s just the Queen of all things vintage! From dresses to shoes, suits, accessories and all kinds of nic-nacs- you must find her- she has the best shop in Worcester !

I love the above shot… totally impromptu but it worked and was lovely to see the table have a secondary purpose to looking pretty ! Sam is one of those photographers who has the nak of getting ‘those’ shots… the ones that look easy but you never get yourself! Unsurprisingly, Sam got the photoshoot featured on the  Whimsical Wedding Wonderland blog back in February this year…. was pretty chuffed 😉

The next set of shots capture a slightly darker mood- these might actually be my favourites…. the combination of all three girls and the eerie overgrow greenhouse. It’s all a bit reminiscent of a ghost story or ‘Day of the Trifids’.



and finally the indoor-outdoor shots… lots of ‘vintage finds’ and plenty of flower filled jugs! Perfect !




Thanks again for visiting and another huge thanks to all those involed!! MWAH ! Hannah. x

SPRING is a time for some wonderful BRITISH flower options… yes, ok, it’s not Summer which provides endless varieties but these flowers are SEASONAL to now and smell divine!!


This post was created out of  frustration and sadness after seeing what can only be described as a, wholly false and inaccurate “seasonal flower chart”, on a prolific wedding blog!  I appreciate that non British flower florists can buy, for example, Roses all year round (I can’t and won’t) but to state that Daffodils are in season in August is totally misleading!  It is ok to not to know what is season when- that’s my job- but for blogs, magazines and the like to publish something that is clearly made-up and so far from the truth is irresponsible; our Brides and Grooms to be deserve better than that !


 So, for what it’s worth, I thought I’d do something about it and help to rectify the flower myths! Of course temperamental weather and crop failures can impact what is available when but I wanted to create a guide for Brides and Grooms which is much more informative, realistic and seasonal for our British flowers! Enjoy!
