Anyone who follows me on Instagram will know it's been all about the Cherry Blossom recently.

I have a flowering cherry outside the studio window which has been a glorious mass of pink froth since early April. Now the last few blooms are clinging on for dear life, the ground beneath carpeted with pink confetti, I thought it was about time to share some images celebrating the blossom in all its glory.

In Japan, the explosion of pink heralds the arrival of Spring.

The Japanese are even more obsessed by cherry blossom than I am, celebrating it's arrival with Hanami (blossom viewing) parties. I don't need much {any!} persuasion to turn a little Japanese, so this is my take on Hanami wedding styling.  I chose the Eldoris stationery suite for these images as there's something quite decadent about the combination of gold deco detailing and masses of ephemeral pink blossom.


I don't know about you, but I can't wait for flowering cherry season next year!
