The beautiful spring blossom at Doddington Hall provided a stunning backdrop to this spring photoshoot. The gardens are so inspirational at this time of the year and I wanted to recreate the sense of lushness and exuberance.
I made a loose unstructured bouquet of eucalyptus, cherry blossom, ranunculus, tulips, hellebores and wallflowers.
To go with the bouquet a full flower crown of hellebores, ranunculus and cherry blossom.
To go with the swathes of bluebells in the garden I made a hand-tied bouquet of blossom, bluebells, eucalyptus and forget-me-nots and a flower crown to match of eucalyptus, blossom and rosemary.
Put them together with the gorgeous blossom and gardens and the result is magical. It’s made even more special because of the fleeting nature of the blossom. It has mainly floated to the ground now so we have to wait until next year to see it again, so very happy to have these lovely photos from Annabel Smith to see me through!
