A village’s showpiece summer event boasted brilliant blooms of flowers and raised valuable cash for a church.
Wedmore Flower Festival was held from July 26-27, raising hundreds of pounds for Wedmore Methodist Church.
The show attracted a sizable crowd, and raised in excess of £1,500.
Floral displays filled the church with colour, and there were historical documents on show containing the church's records dating back to the 18th century.
The festival's theme was Somerset villages, with entrants required to create displays inspired by the county's picturesque sights.
The free event also had stalls for arts and crafts available.
Coffee and cakes were offered to visitors in the mornings and cream teas in the afternoon.
