Churchill at Taradale, by Prunella

Churchill is a lovely old country church and Sunday school hall in Taradale, a little over an hours drive from Melbourne. The 1858 church boasts grand timber ceilings, detailed stained-glass windows, a carved wooden pulpit, and even a choir-loft. The church and the charming, whitewashed wooden hall are set in two acres of garden with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and pocket-sized town. 

The lovely ladies from Prunella, Caris and Vanessa, not only work their botanical prowess for bespoke events, but can also organise a complete package of catering, styling and accommodation. I had the chance to capture some of their magic in the preparation for Sarah and Paul's wedding in late May.
