With the first glimmers of some sun and warmth, I don’t know about you, but it certainly makes me very happy to know that Summer is on its way and Spring is in full swing. I adore the colours that late Spring produces and with it all the fresh and bountiful new life. One of my favourite scenes and often associated with May is an apple orchard fully in blossom – the pinks and greens are just a wonderful combination and I adore the blossom itself. Can you imagine getting married in an apple orchard! Yes please! I’m sure my love of the outdoors and Somerset ancestry all help create my love of an orchard, but it’s just so dreamy and romantic!


Taking the blossom and colours as inspiration, I have created a floral and Spring inspiration board. Using the blossom itself, you could fashion beautiful floral centrepieces, buttonholes, bouquets and add to a semi naked cake (which is so on trend for this year). Pale pink and green ribbons and linen could be used to decorate – perhaps hang ribbons off an apple tree and attach escort cards to create a fun table plan. Coppers and rose golds work well with pale pinks and greens, so perhaps add touches of metallic to help luxe it up a little. You could have fun with the food and drink and play around with apple flavours; think apple Martini’s, apple crumble, pork and apple, lots of cider (yum!) and you could create apple sauce favours, so cute!

Being named after Jane Austen’s Emma, it is serendipitous that I would end up working in weddings. A country girl at heart, I am equally comfortable roaming the farm in my tweed, surrounded by animals or sat in a beautiful Georgian property dining on afternoon tea and sipping champagne. With a strength in organising and a flair for creativity and a passion for everything wedding related I have been lucky enough to work as a Wedding Co-Ordinator for some stunning venues across the South East. I look after the social media and am Co-Planner at Goose & Berry, luxury wedding & event planners & caterers based in London & Buckinghamshire ( and am on hand to help you plan and design your perfect day.
