Cherry tree

We have quite an old Cherry tree which blossomed beautifully and gave an abundance of cherries every year. Last March (2019) because it was getting quite big and wide we heavily pruned it back to literally the trunk and main branches. Obviously it didn't do that much last year. Anyway, this year its now blossoming but white and not pink like the previous years.
Is there a reason for this?
If you've read my post on Wysteria you'll know I don't know that much about gardening but I'm learning!!!

    Some cherry trees are grafted onto the trunk of another variety so maybe yours was one of these and your heavy pruning cut out the grafted variety?
    Can’t think of another reason.
