We asked Allison Phillips from Allison at The Flower Garden to send in her top tips for creating a natural bouquet.
"Rustic, natural and woodland-themed weddings are definitely the favourite with brides at the moment. Incorporate lots of foliage in a variety of textures, including eucalyptus and ferns."

It's no surprise that so many couples choose to say “I do” to summer nuptials. It's the time of year we all feel happier, healthier and more relaxed, so what could be better than celebrating in the sun? To inspire you, local photographer, Roman Hajduk and a team of local suppliers teamed up to create this gorgeous pre-wedding shoot.
He tells us: “Finally comes the moment when her dreams are turned into a hard step on the ground. On her wedding day, she wants to be perfect and at her most beautiful. This is why she has planned her nuptials down to the smallest detail.”

This beautiful shoot was inspired by the suppliers' love of nature and the Lake District. We spoke to the photographer, Jo Greenfield, to find out more: “We wanted to achieve a stylish look that was still affordable. The set up was simple, and can easily be used in a real wedding with a few key changes. We also wanted to create family portraits with a baby and dog as it's becoming more common for couples to get married after having children, and dogs are becoming increasingly more welcome at weddings, which is fantastic!”
The team decided to have the shoot at the stunning Eden Barn. “Just 10 minutes from the venue is an open moor,” says Jo. “We wanted to show that you can get epic views even if your venue doesn't have it on its doorstep. Ask your photographer if there's a possibility of going for a drive on your wedding day. It'll give you some time on your own and a chance to get some lovely shots without your guests peering over your photographer's shoulder with their phones.”

I love Zoe and Sammy's wedding which featured shades of mauve, blush, plan and Burgundy touches. Every detail at this wedding was planned beautifully and reflected the pair perfectly. I love what the bride says about her favourite part of the day. She says: "I was just really excited and couldn't stop smiling all day! The lead up to the ceremony felt a bit surreal, but when I saw Sammy waiting, everything fell into place.”
