Flower Power

I love the Summer time, as do we all, with the warmer days, longer daylight hours and at this time of year it all seems to kick off beautifully with The Chelsea Flower Show in London.

I’m not getting the chance to go this year 🙁 more’s the pity, but I will be avidly watching all the highlights on the telly box throughout the week!!

I may not be heading to London today, but it has brought back some fab memories from two recent photoshoots that was full of Flower Power 🙂

I rarely have the pleasure of working alongside other photographers on photoshoots (unless they are weddings!!) but I recently worked alongside the very talented Sarah Vivienne  at two gorgeous location shoots where it was all about the flowers.

The amazing Tracey Spokes of Once Upon A Time, flowers for all your stories, created some stunning loosely styled, flowing bouquets, table decorations and hair garlands to die for!

I had so much fun photographing the behind the scenes shots at the beautiful Weston Hall and here is a little sample from the day!

To create a whimsical wedding theme keep in mind the flowers and how they can dramatically influence your wedding day through smell and the power of their beauty. This shoot was on a cold February day and Tracey managed to create warmth and colour with beautiful hand-tied cascading bouquets, table decorations, button holes and hair garlands.
