“I offer all aspects of floristry from designs to ceremony and venue styling,” says BlossEm's Emily Davis. “My style is natural and romantic, as I work with the seasons and complement the surroundings of a wedding. From the initial meeting to delivery of your flowers, I offer a personal service where you deal with myself through all the planning. I put my heart and soul into every big day, and after 16 years still get butterflies showing a bride her bouquet.”

Based just outside Barmby Moor, Barmbyfields is a collection of rural barns, renovated to retain their rustic charm of old exposed beams and brickwork. There's many different rooms to utilise, consisting of the main barn, ceremony room, bar area, entrance and upstairs granary; a place where people go to relax. There's also an outdoor barn, popular in both summer and winter, while the grounds provide many photo opps, from the signature rope swing to a grass paddock; ideal for garden games.

Ukrainian-born Olga met Oliver at a Halloween ball at private London members' club, Annabel's. “Oliver was dressed as Dracula and spotted me on the dancefloor,” says the bride. “He thinks he acted suave trying to catch my attention, but he looked like a gazelle caught in the headlights, with his mouth wide open!”

“Planning, communication and timings are crucial, so make sure your stylist knows how many ladies need their hair doing, as well as where they'll get ready and what time you need to leave for your ceremony; while ensuring there's enough time to all get dressed.”
