English Peonies is based in Norfolk about 35 minutes from me, and as the name suggests, is a fabulous cutting garden where Sarah grows stunning peonies alongside all other cut flowers.
My work is usually a real mix of styling, photographic work, and photographic assisting. But in June and July, the pendulum has definitely swung more in the direction of photographer. And I'm so grateful for that.
There's something about the juxtaposition of super pretty blooms next to a historical building that I love so much.
It's that time of year here where things get busy and I have to 'make hay whilst the sun shines'. My bread and butter work as a stylist and photographic assistant gets busy, due to the longer daylight hours.
Magnolia season is so special, because it is so fleeting. I must have taken hundreds of photos this year, and although I feel like I never quite captured it in it's full glory, I do love these snaps.
Here are some pretty ranunculus for you all. I love how they look like ballet tutus, and the way the edge of the petals turn a vintage blush pink is just divine.
