The idea for this photoshoot has been planted in my mind for quite some time, so when I started to organise a collaboration, I knew what to look for.  Jade Starmore (the photographer) has such a beautiful and interesting style to her work, Rachael Forbes is well known for her attention to detail with makeup and styling and of course, Emmi Keane had the exact look we were after – long hair with a dark complexion.
So with this team, we were able to create the most beautiful set of images…

I am a lover of anything and everything wild, foraged and full of life. So when I was choosing what to include in these arrangements, I wanted them to make people think of the wilderness, and of nature. I’ve used lots of twigs and leafy branches, gorgeous deep hydrangeas and even some brambles (which were a little painful to wear!)

Emmi was a fantastic model and saw our vision clearly of how to show off these arrangements.  Jade suggested light colours for the set and hand made the skirt worn in the photos to match the colour scheme, which highlighted the flowers beautifully.

Personally, I’m in love with the glued hydrangeas petals and Japanese maple leafs flowing down Emmi’s back with her knotted pleats towered around her head! The placement was to resemble a gust of wind gently moving the flowing petals along her back, like in autumn when circles of leaves dance around your feet.

This is what inspires me – seasons, movement, the natural rhythm of nature itself. I like to think my wedding work resembles this also and I love to encourage brides to do something a bit out of the ordinary for their flowers, even if it means turning a simple head garland into a twiggy crown with brambles, or instead of a tall centepieces – suspended sticks covered in bright blooms, like trees in the summertime!

We all had so much fun with this photoshoot and I’m still so excited seeing my arrangements in such an elegant style.

The lady-maker behind this beauty of a gown, tells us a bit more….

There's a new design being added to the Rowanjoy Bridal collection - The Crawford Dress.

Rowanjoy - Crawford

Inspired by and named after screen goddess Joan Crawford, the Crawford dress is a modern take on a 1930's inspired design. Made from a beautiful glossy silk Gazar and beaded lace with floral motifs, the dress is a halter style with back panel detailing. The beaded lace is used to highlight the panelling and shaping of the dress with floral motifs added on the waistband and neckline for that extra detail. The skirt has a soft high-low hem starting at ballet length at the front and graduating into the train at the back, its perfect for showing off those fabulous shoes you just treated yourself to!
Available made to measure starting at £975.
