What to do when your favourite flower is out of season? It’s a problem encountered by many peony-loving brides, with this delicate bloom only making its appearance for a few weeks a year. Bride Hestelle found the perfect solution: paper and fabric flowers that had the same lush white petals but lasted forever and contributed a uniquely modern aspect to the wedding. Add a touch of blush, an incredible dress and a fairytale backdrop of twinkly lights to complement the soft autumn light, and you have one of the most magical weddings we’ve ever featured.
