Wowsa we have been so busy here over the last couple of weeks, we are in the thick of wedding season (loving every minute of it despite the ridiculously early mornings) and we also had an event at the weekend too so I have been feeling rather guilty for not blogging last week. However I am going to make up for that today by sharing with you this gorgeous ethereal inspiration shoot we were involved with recently which was featured on US blog Classic Bride. Joanne Truby Floral Design teamed up with the super talented Corette Faux to create this simplistic shoot, less really is more sometimes. Corette had a vision that was organic, clean & gloriously white, highlighting the bride with her classic beauty. Attainable and organic. We wanted the flowers to reflect this vision & used lots of foliage with trailing jasmine trails mixed with gorgeous blousy peonies in crisp white tones teamed with other soft romantic flowers that included; nigella, scabiosa, lilac, with just a slight hint of blush pink astilbe to create interest arranged as if they have been picked growing in the meadow.
For the table centres we used understated white mini urns for a classic yet modern look to tie in with the shoots theme & created natural style arrangements. I wanted the flowers & foliage to look as if they had just been thrown in the urn & were spilling out, unstructured & natural. We used a mixture of foliages that included guilder rose foliage and soft ruscus.
The flowers for the table centres included; white nigella which have a soft whimsy feel, scabiosa, astilbe larkspur & peonies which complimented the meadow backdrop.
Ethereal, organic & simple but yet still so beautiful don’t you think? Perfect for a relaxed wedding breakfast or an outside ceremony. For the evening you could hang festoon lighting from the trees to add to the romantic ambiance ready to start your party celebrations and welcome your evening guests.
Are you going for classic white flowers paired with whimsy details for your big day? As always would love to hear your plans & ideas.
