In The Garden

Back in May - on a dry day - I got together with a great bunch of people to collaborate on a country garden inspired styled photo shoot. Myself,  Kayleigh (calligraphy extraordinaire) and Elle (master baker) spent the afternoon quite happily playing about with everything we had created while Matt took some photos and his gorgeous wife Rach made us a film. We also drank tea, fizz and ate cake. Here are some pictures...

We chose my parents in laws quintessentially English garden on the south Nottinghamshire border as the location for our first shoot which made for a relaxed and informal setting to showcase our work. Using the original apple store as a backdrop highlighted the flowers beautifully.

Together we form a local Wedding Collective, a meeting of creative minds with a shared vision of simplicity, attention to detail and authenticity within our specialised areas. Our shoot has been featured on  Whimsical Wonderland Weddings  blog and is due to be in the next edition of Save the Date magazine. The picture above of the wild and romantic bouquet that I put together featured David Austin Kiera roses and peonies along with foraged flowers and foliage from our garden. I was thrilled when it came runner up in June's #underthefloralspell on  Flowerona blog which I couldn't quite believe as I saw it sit aside some of the UKs top florists work.

Special thanks goes to Elle and Joella who did an excellent job on hair and make up and and Selma our model. We are really looking forward to collaborating again later this year :)
