When this shoot landed in our inbox here at Your Surrey Wedding, we just knew our lovely readers would adore it. We spoke to local florist Johanna Pedrick to find out more: “The shoot was inspired by my time growing up in New Zealand, enjoying delicious food and being around close family and friends. The modern couple love the idea of an intimate, romantic ceremony, celebrating with those they love and that are special to them. To make the moon gate I used peonies, romantic Antike garden roses, quicksand, sweet avalanche and Sahara sunset spray roses. The shades of pink, blush and coral together with lush foliage complemented the tranquil lake and the moon gate created a showstopping piece throughout the day.”

When it comes to creating perfect bespoke wedding invitations, Kelly Simmons from Pink Peony Weddings shares her expert advice. She says: "When creating a bespoke design, we always advise our couples to think carefully about their personalities and style of wedding, such as glamorous and sophisticated or fun and quirky. Invitations are the first thing a guest receives and gives a suggestion of what the wedding will be like, so we believe it's important it reflects the couple. Knowing what you don't like is as important as knowing what you do."
