Viburnum davidii ? If so, there needs to be a male plant and a female plant to produce the berries. I had two in Scotland - they were my pride and joy but sadly the cuttings didn't take so I don't have it here

Looks like a dogwood.

Thanks guys I looked up both suggestions and it looks like it is a type of dogwood, very pretty I wish there was a way just to "freeze" it in time as it would make lovely arrangements!!

I have been looking for this one for awhile.
I too thought of the dogwoods, but something didnt quite seem right.

I think I have found it. Look for aronia melanocarpa.
The chokeberry group.
I think it is a better fit.

I have Aronia melanocarpa in my garden...the berries are never this color. They go from green to a kind of dull red to dark purple blue, almost black. Never a bright blue like those in the picture. Also, Aronia leaves have finely serrated edges. I also suspect some kind of viburnum.

It's a dogwood. Probably Cornus amomum, or Silky Dogwood.

After a quick Google images search, I stand corrected, and agree with Isaac.

I missed the serrated leaves on aronia.

I did find a link with similar pics of silky dogwood.

Case solved.
