I am so excited to be able to share these beautiful images with you! November 2018 saw us at the INCREDIBLE Aynhoe Park. It is one of the most special places in the country, it’s filled with curiosities such as unicorns, statues of Greek gods, crystals and so much more! The stunning grounds even had 100s of grazing deer, totally surreal + luxurious. I felt like I’d fallen down the rabbit hole- in the best way!
With the most wonderful creative team- together we made this MAGIC!!
When Valentina, founder and head storyteller at The Stars Inside approached me about being part of this photo shoot and gave me the brief of, surreal, wings, luxurious, Tim Walker inspired wedding I was over the moon! It was months in the planning, for the ceremony set up I knew I wanted to use the perspex plinths with flowers inside and spilling out, that felt like the right kind of trippy to me and I had an idea of the shape I wanted to create, I just needed to come up with my flower choices. I really wanted to focus on contrast. contrast of colour and texture.
I finally settled on the most cosmic Orchids and built from there; soft, scented, blush garden roses, copper beach, smoke bush and frilly carnations with beautiful dried pampas grass, lunaria and desert yearning (kind hate the name desert yearning, ha!). When they all arrived in my studio I knew it was going to be EPIC!
On the day I just walked around with my jaw on the floor, every corner filled with something so unusual, stylish and beautiful. Each room was completely awe inspiring! I’m such a crier but managed to hold it together (*professional!*) seriously though, it’s that incredible.
To give you an idea of the effort that went into this incredible shoot- Jenifer of Edible Essence cut out over 2000 individual feathers to create this masterpiece of a cake…
I am so grateful to the incredible team that made this what it is! Huge shout out to Valentina and Emma of Emma-Jane Photography your concept design and organisation is second to none. Huge thanks to Alice of Ruby Alice for all the help and laughs, I love our flowery adventures!
What a team, what a team!
