Let me introduce you to the lovely Bea, of Botanika

She creates the most beautiful natural wedding flowers which constantly reflect the seasons and are packed full of local, British grown flowers and foliage, topped up with foraged wild ingredients.  

I love it that she is passionate about using local suppliers, not only for her flowers but also the other essential floral accessories like the natural hand dyed silk ribbons that have become most popular for finishing of her stunning wedding bouquets.

When the lovely Emma Stoner sent me photos of Annie and Phil’s very personal wedding at The Longhouse near Bruton in Somerset in June 2016, I knew you’d like to read all about it.  This down to earth couple wanted a wedding venue that celebrates all things local where they could entertain their family and friends, plus a broad of children, in the great outdoors in a relaxed and informal way.  Emma’s photos really capture the relaxed and friendly vibe that the couple created and will give them very special personal memories of their wedding day for years to come. 

Bride Annie told me all about their search for the perfect wedding venue and how the day unfolded - over to you Annie …
