Succulents at Weddings

15 May
First of all…..what in the world is a succulent? The funny thing is that I’ve always known what these unusual flowers are called, but never why? Succulents are plants that are thicker in appearance so that they can store water in harsher climates. Heaven thinks of everything!

Succulents are for the home grown bride and groom. For the couple planning a rustic inspired wedding, or looking to add some roots to a modern day.

I love how both floral designers have blended fresher and brighter looking flowers with the succulents. Pairing the bright’s with the muted tones stop the bouquet looking archaic.

Whole Flower Confetti?

22 Nov

Photography by Steve Watkins Photography

Happy thanksgiving to those across the pond!

I have seen all manners of confetti. I’ve seen coloured dots, whole petals, music notes. In the grand scheme of things confetti can seem like such a small part of a wedding. But let’s face it, no wedding photography is complete without the perfect confetti shot. It’s up there with the groom’s face as the bride walks down the aisle. Two people, happy and caught off guard…can’t go wrong really. Well…unless it goes up the brides nose ha!

Like so many aspects of weddings, it’s a great way to inject a couple’s stamp on the day. So new versions are always welcome.

Most of the time floral confetti is reduced to petals but LarkspurHill had a much better idea. Whole dried flowers…it’s a wonder few others have tried it. The story behind LarkspurHill is so cute.

A lady with 5 daughters and a great garden becomes very busy. After creating so many dried flowers for her daughter’s weddings, Cindy C thought she should share her produce. Good thinking Batman.

The results are incredible! On eof the best parts is that you can buy the months before the wedding and know that they will keep till the big day. We salute you Larkspur Hill.

‘Decorated With a Million Flowers’…A Debut At Dior

12 Jul

It was sad to see Galliano leave Dior…but there’s a new guy in town. I have to admit, when I first heard Raf Simon’s was taking over at Dior I silently thought(to avoid embarrassment)…who? Now for those of you who as confused as I was, Raf Simon’s was previously creative director at Jil Sander and has now taken over the same role at Dior.

For Raf Simon’s debut, he took it back to Dior basics….classic feminitiy. What better way to say it than with flowers?    One of the best things about creativity is the process in which it is created.

I think Simon’s has done an incredible job of this collection….it is SO beautiful! Welcome to the House of Dior Raf, I reckon Christian would be proud.

(Doesn’t this jacket say powerful and graceful all at the same time?)

What’s Going Down The Aisle?….Hope and Grace Headpieces…

25 Apr

So I came across these amazing headpieces by British company Hope and Grace and couldn’t help sharing them with you! They are void of the over the top syndrome that tends to happen with wedding headpieces. Each one whimsically elegant and incredibly romantic. Plus, their neutral colours mean they would suit a variety of bridal dresses. These pieces would be great in an engagement shoot, bridal outfit or added during the wedding day photography later on in day. Winner all round!

The Wedding Spotlight’s on…A 50’s Affair by Postscript Events

14 Apr

It so happens that I know Alex of Postscript Events (and can vouch for her awesomeness), so when I got a whiff of this photo shoot I knew I had to share it with you. Nothing says 50’s more than THAT special red because its attractive and elegant all at the same time. This shoot incorporates the work of great vendors.  I hope you enjoy the fabulous details, floral arrangements and great co-ordination as much I have! If weddings are all in the details, Postscript have done a great job.
