As May Day bank holiday approaches, Bluebells in Warwickshire and the Cotswolds arrive with their deep purple petals and strong perfume, to celebrate the moment spring turns towards summer. There is nothing more enchanting as they race to bloom before the tree canopies above fill in and the ferns below unfurl.
I am thrilled to be hosting my Bluebell Wood photoshoot on the first May Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 30 April, Sunday 1 May and Monday 2 May) having gained exclusive access to not just one, but two beautiful private bluebell woods.
It’s a wonderful experience to take a stroll with your loved ones and discover swathes of Bluebells – a carpet of purple that provides an idyllic backdrop for picture-perfect photographs.
Bluebells flourish from the end of April to the first weeks of May in Warwickshire. They are at their best for only a few days – as soon as they are perfect, they disappear for another year.
