Boveney church wedding venue

St Mary’s, Boveney, decorated for a wedding by Georgina Wrenn

“It was a joy to both decorate the beautiful church of St Mary Magdalene, Boveney and attend the ceremony of dear friends in such a stunningly tranquil setting. The church, scenery and location by the bank of the River Thames make it a truly magical venue.”

Wedding florist, Georgina Wrenn
