Japanese Spring Photoshoot

This shoot was featured in our Spring/Summer 2021 Issue.  The venue was Broadfield Court, Herefordshire with photographs taken by NEJ Portraint & Wedding Photography

When the tiny pink and white cherry blossoms bloom in Japan there is a nationwide celebration. The festival known as Hanami literally translates into “seeing flowers”. It is celebrated with picnics, parties and sake. For Matrimony Magazines Spring issue I could think of no better theme to celebrate the new start of a season and the hope of weddings to follow.


The fresh, welcoming colours of white, pink and green transform the landscape of venues as their gardens burst back into life. You can easily incorporate the soft blush colours of the palette into bridesmaids dresses or highlights for your wedding. Also this super beautiful combination of colour translates so well to photography, that you’ll adore your pictures and memories of your wedding even more.
