Displays inspired by traditional gifts such as shells, cotton, and precious stones

Wedding Anniversaries is the theme for the Flower Festival taking place at Ottery St Mary Parish Church this month.

The floral displays will be inspired by the traditional gifts given to celebrate each year of marriage, from cotton (one year) through to diamond (60 years).

There is plenty of scope for creativity, with anniversary themes of wood, shells and as well as precious stones and metals.

There will be a huge range of floral displays prepared by the church flower team and other guest arrangers.
