I’m so excited to share this collaboration with you! Recently I headed to gorgeous Dillington House, Somerset for a Christmas tablescape & wreath inspiration shoot with Petal Perfections. On location with experienced Wincanton photographer Graham Hiscock from Studio H Photography.
Dillington House is an English Heritage Grade II listed hotel, wedding venue and educational centre set in impressive parkland.
First things first, we had so much fun at this venue. With profesional and friendly staff and set in acres of Parkland, the grand Jacobean house looks like something out of Sense & Sensibility. It really took my breath away. Dillington House dates back to the sixteenth century, and is the former home of Prime Minister Lord North.
With high ceilings, crystal chandaliers and original tapestry as our backdrop, Carol’s Christmas tablescape centrepiece is opulent in style and fits the surroundings perfectly. Created with only the best blooms (Carol only uses quality stems as standard), circled with candles in vintage votives, gold accents, mirrored base, white linen, silverware & crystal, folded napkin mini arrangements. Attention to detail is clear.
Watching Carol bringing her vision to life is an inspiration! Imagine this scaled for a wedding or corporate event. Exquisite.
PETAL PEFECTIONS… BEGINNINGS
Petal Perfections grew out of a passion for flowers Carol inherited from her father. Fully trained at Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath, Carol is full of passion and inspiration. Her joy for flowers is truly infectious.
Carol’s distinctive style and unwavering ethos for quality has ensured Petal Perfections success from the beginning, mirrored in the rave reviews received on a regular basis.

Carol’s eye for detail and elegant style is clear in the Christmas tablescape and wreath she created for our photoshoot at Dillington House.
Personally, I love the use of colours from each end of the spectrum; the lustrous red rose against the grey of the candle. The soft olive green of the foliage with the gold lustre. Backdropped by the historical tapestry on one side, soft candlelight and acres of parkland on the other; truly beautiful and quintessentially Somerset. Dillington are licenced in 4 areas of the property; the stunning Orangery, outdoors on the elegant patio, in The Hanning Room where our tablescape is set, or in the Theatre set in the 1870’S Mews Building.
