At the beginning of September, the lovely Rachel from the Tallulah Rose Flower School invited me along to Bath to take part in a photo shoot but this time I wasn't going to be behind the camera - I would be designing and creating beautiful bouquets to be photographed for their new website. Along with some other fab florists, we arrived at TRFS's lovely workshop all looking forward to the morning's flowery happenings and we weren't disappointed.
We were presented with a sea of beautiful blooms & foliage to choose from, and were given a free reign ... Just the kind of creative brief that I love!
While we were happily chatting and playing with the flowers, the photographer took plenty of action shots. Once each bouquet was complete, it was beautifully styled and a final fine art image taken. As soon as the website is live, these images will be available for all to see.
We were allowed to take our creations home and so the next day I took my designs down to the wonderful treasure trove of an antiques shop that is Brocante just down the road from my shop in Castle Road, to take some photographs of my own.
Using some of the vintage finds and the fab shop interior as a backdrop, the bouquets looked gorgeous. The light was just right, and the slightly shabby / rustic look complemented them beautifully.
So here are my images for your delight. Enjoy ...
