A  Boho Winter……

The romantic essence of a wedding day, for most, is floaty, whimsical and dreamy.

We wanted to capture this with an abundance of textures- Foliage, flowers, silks, lace and our own home made ribbons dyed with everything from Elderberry and Beetroot, through to Spices and Cabbage, yes Cabbage, you read it right, the red type to be precise!!!

We’d had the overall flowing style in our minds eye from the previous Autumn when we were dabbling with alchemy, with a stove full of amazing concoctions brewing, giving us earthy rainbow tones to silks, linens, lace and other fabrics we dipped.  Each one would come out different each with it’s own unique shade, the uses to us were endless.Wedding_Flower_Photography-103-XL

The warm tones of the vintage lace in Kristina’s dress combined with the cooler shades of lilac, from some of the ribbons we had produced, influenced the combination of flowers chosen to accentuate the colours and textures.  This time we allowed ourselves the luxury of just two types of flowers that we hadn’t been able to grow in our own plot at that time of year.  A stunning lilac Rose  called ‘Dolcetto’ and the very graceful Clematis Pirouette.   Everything else was at its own natural growing stage from our garden, the amazing Ivy heads and the very unusual buds of the Euphorbia combined with the dusky mauve of the freckled Hellebores, the dried seedheads of the wild willowherb and hydrangeas from the summer before.

Assembling all the feature flowers on the work bench emanated in us combining them into a beautiful floral crown, the hydrangeas in this were stunning and set off by Kristina’s English Rose looks to perfection……
