    A Skimmia for the top one?

    Agree with hogweed for the first Skimmia Japonica.  

    The second one looks like Choisya Ternata.

    I'd go with  both of those IDs.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Many thanks to you all.

    Both the skimmia and choisya can be pruned, if necessary, with secateurs. The choisya often has a second flush of flowers late summer/autumn.
